Wal-mart has 6 gal (turquoise colored) plastic jerry cans, several of them would also work for less $s.

Adding H20 capacity is what is needed.
We use those 6 gal containers for moving water, and they are very sensitive to freezing. And...when they freeze... they break...or start to leak...bad...

True, especally in WY, but not too likely at Quartzsite. Too keep from cracking when freezing, do not fill up completly, give some expanding room. But not in WY winters.

Well, not to rub it in, but for The Geezers, EVERY day is Saturday and we're always campin'. We're parked in our winter "nest" at Quartzsite; expect a side-trip of 2 months to Gila Bend (January gridlock in Quartzsite is too scary for words), then back to Q until April when it's time to head to Texas for the Bluebonnet Rally.

Gina - we'll probably accept a family invite for Turkey Day in Chandler ... any chance you'd be visiting your friends there? If we stay in Q, hope we can get together. Good water in Q is 25 cents/gallon or $1 for your 5-gallon container at places like "the Pit Stop" on north AZ 95 - not too bad a drive from the BLM dispersed camping areas. Hope you can get away for a terrific weekend in the desert.

Pamela - we have only driven thru snow in WY once (traveling I-80), but once was enuff. We speculate that "Wyoming" is an ancient Native American term meaning "when does this d***ed wind stop?.

Whatever is going on in your neck of the woods, take care & travel safe. L 'n D

Talking

We've been home 8 days, and we're ready to head out again! OK...the trailer's not ready, but we're feeling really cramped here after 9 weeks on the road picking and choosing our sites far from anyone whenever possible. It's not that we're entirely anti-social, but we do love to hear the sound of the trees and the bees when we're camping.

The girls and I head out Monday for another week camping, this time only 35 miles away or so...and it won't be quiet - there are supposed to be some 30 other kids in our group! WHEW!

OH...and for those of you in WYO...it's 85 degrees here today! YIKES!

If the wind stopped...we'd all fall over...

THAT'S what Dave said ... don't know why I didn't think to add that. We'll be hoping to get your call. L 'n D

A/C? What's that!?


Fortunately we live on the coast where we have an afternoon breeze most days, so A/C here consists of opening two windows so the breeze comes on through. It's a great spot! I loved LOTS of places we saw on this last trip, but for consistently sunny, livable conditions, you just can't beat the Central Coast. (No snow...sniff! And no big rain storms...wah! I LOVE weather changes, but can't complain about consistency much.)
