Due to a pending storm that was due to hit the Phoenix area on Wednesday we decided to head out a day early. They were predicting rain and high winds for Wednesday and all day Thursday. After our experience in West Texas on the first day of this adventure we decided we did not need to be driving in heavy winds and although we were paid up through Wednesday night we decided to head out that morning. As it turned out this was a good choice. We headed west on Interstate 10 to Quartzsite, Arizona, and then north to Lake Havasu City. By doing this we skirted below the storm and missed it completely.
We spent Wednesday night at DJ’s RV Park in Lake Havasu City. This is a nice park where we spent a few days a year ago on our way home from the Baker to Vegas Race. This also gave us a chance to hit Wal-Mart to stock up on groceries and to do a little maintenance on the coach. The plan is to head out mid-morning on Thursday for Laughlin, Nevada. No need to get an early start since we’ll only be going a little over 60 miles.
