Thursday 2-20-20 We Leave Imperial Dam for Gila Bend

Another perfect Arizona day. Overnight low at Imperial Dam was 57F and high at Gila Bend 80F. Sunny and 8mph wind from NW.

Got up, ate breakfast and walked Joy to the dumpsters. Went over to say goodbye to Bill. On the way back I met Michael from Colorado. We talked about solar.

Got everything ready to move the motorhome

Drove over to the Christian Center and filled with propane

Our neighbor Penny filled just ahead of us

Filled the empty gallon water jug. Last visit to Christian Center this year

Went up to the Mesa and filled with water and dumped.

Went back to Quail Hill and hooked up the Equinox. Headed out with Donna following. Stopped at entrance to YPG to check everything

Went south on US-95 and turned east on to Dome Valley Road. Got on I-8 and headed east to Gila Bend.

Stopped at rest area about half way

Drove on to Gila Bend and the Elks Lodge where we are spending the night. 120 miles today.

Went into the Elks for a beer and dinner.

They weren’t serving food tonight

Talked to the couple from Washington in the fifth wheel behind us.

The bar tender is the Safety and Health Officer for Solana Energy, a huge solar power facility on west side of Gila Bend
