Moved to Yuma Lakes RV Park

Yuma, Arizona High 70 Low 43

Yesterday we didn't do very much other than going to the library to use their internet. The wind blew all day and into the night. Today is a clear sunny day.

This morning we left the Casino parking lot and drove to the Yuma Lakes RV Park, a part of Colorado River Adventures. We will be here for three nights. We drove about 15 miles. The levelers seem to work well, but there are some things about them that I still need to learn. The front Jacks are a lot faster than the old electric ones, and will take getting used to.

While I was getting set up, one of the other visitors Asked me if we Montana Owner’s Club members. I told him we were and that we had been in the Montana Circle in Quarzsite. He said he was there also, but was one of the ones that didn't park in the circle. He told us when he left there were only three or four left in the circle.

They were having a crafts show in the clubhouse and we went and checked it out. Cindy talked to one lady about learning how to make the jewelry, and found out she was making some of it using potatoes and jams, which she dried, carved, and then painted. They looked kind of neat. There was one booth that made small carved wood ornaments, but I didn't get any pictures. There were maybe 10 people selling different things.

When we came into the park, they gave us a book with coupons and other things in it. On one page was a list of dumb Arizona laws. I will list a few of them.
Hunting Camels is prohibited.
Any misdemeanor committed while wearing a red mask is considered a felony. This goes back to the days of the Wild West.
There is a possible 25 years in prison for cutting down a cactus.
Donkeys cannot sleep in bathtubs.

I will list some more of them later.

We are planning on catching up on laundry while we are here, and just kind of relaxing.

Thanks for visiting. 


  1. Donkeys can't sleep in bathtubs? Any idea where that one came from or why?

  2. We invested in a bed saver. The level ups go so fast, I was worried we wouldn't move the truck completely out of the way and I wouldn't be able to react fast enough to cancel it. I want to hear more about the crazy Arizona laws.

    The stupid motorist law did seem to help.
