We had Gracie groomed on the 23rd. While we were in town, we stopped by the vets office to pick up more heartworm pills.
The next day, we were back in Quartzsite having dinner at the Grubstake with friends Mike & Mary. We'll see them again when they return to Spokane in a couple of months.
We left on Monday, driving to the Wal-Mart in Parker to pick up Earl's prescription for his cholesterol-lowering medication. Our plan was to continue north on AZ-95 through Lake Havasu City, on to I-40 and, from there, to Las Vegas. However, just before we got to the Bill Williams Bridge, we ran into a road closure where all traffic was being turned around. Don't know what the reason for the closure was...an accident, I assume...but it meant having to go all the way back to Parker and heading west from there over to US-95. So we ended up boondocking at our normal spot west of Searchlight for the night.
In the morning, we filled up both vehicles with fuel and headed to Las Vegas. We stopped at Camping World and Smith's before heading out to Las Vegas Bay Campground where we filled up with fresh water. We then drove out to Government Wash, a free area in the Lake Mead NRA overlooking the lake. We'll stay here until our fresh water runs out, or one of our tanks need to be dumped. Depending on the weather farther north, we may hang around the area longer.
