We Sold our Rig!

Or at least we think we have. We have a deposit and a date that we are going to the Arizona DMV to complete the transaction so hopefully everything goes smoothly.

After moving closer to town we had several people stopping by each day inquiring about the rig. We only spent a total of 3 nights at that location before it was sold. Then we packed everything up and moved back to LaPosa South. The buyer is an Arizona resident and he wanted to go to the DMV to complete the transaction. We have scheduled that for the 17th or 21st which means we will have no place to stay and will leave that day to head back to South Dakota.

It was a quite relaxing week with a happy hour of some sort almost every night. One night we had a large group to welcome two of our newest arrivals; Steve and Debbie as well as Les and Sue. Neither one of them are parked in our area but did stop by for the night. Steve and Debbie had stopped by our area in South Dakota for a few days this spring. This time they brought Debbie's brother Steve and Diane, not to be confused with the other Steve and Dianne. So at this happy hour we had 3 Steve's, 2 Sue's, 2 Jim's and 2 Dianne's!

 Another day we went to Lake Havasu City with Dino and Lisa. Every time we travel through that city we say someday we are going to stop by the Mudshark Brewing Company and it did not disappoint. From their brews to their food it was a great stop. Barb and I shared a flight of beer which consisted of (6) 5 ounce pours. Barb’s favorite was Morning Buzz and mine was Full Moon. We both got the Caribbean Shrimp Tacos which were incredible! We are already talking about stopping by there on our way north in a week or so. 
My 4 are on the left, Barb's 2 on the right 
Our next stop was Hanger 24 Brewery. Quite a disappointment after being at Mudshark with both the atmosphere and the brews. No need for us to stop by stop by that one again. 


Saturday we went back down to Yuma to have ultrasound scans. For $70 they scan you looking for 12 areas; arteries, liver, gallbladder, kidneys, bladder, thyroid and a few other things. We have several friends who get this done annually so we thought we would give it a try. Plus, it gave us another opportunity to get to Yuma and stop by for sushi!  Since it was just Barb and I this time it was much less traumatic. The Ultra Sound Tech said that they frequently find things that patients need to follow up with their physicians on.   I am happy to report that we are healthy and ready to carry on with our adventures!

 On our way back we got a message from Dino and Lisa saying that they were at Grubstake watching the Vikings so we went straight there to watch them get beat by the 49'er. 😠
Dino and I each got a basket meal while the girls decided to split a appetizer sampler. The waitress said it was big but they had no idea what they were in for!

 They only finished about 1/2 of it and fought over who had to take the rest home as neither one of them wanted it. Dino settled the argument by suggesting they give it to one of the dozens of homeless people throughout town. So Dino and I jumped in one vehicle while Barb and Lisa jumped in the other in search of a homeless person. They were home 15 minutes later saying that they made the guys day and he was double fisting jalapeno poppers and mushrooms as they drove away!

Today we are headed over to the person who is buying our rig to set up a delivery date. We are thinking this Friday if everything works out right. If that is the case, we too will be homeless in Quartzsite!

  1. Thanks for not bringing up the dreaded Sushi incident. When you are homeless, we will bring you appetizers from the grubstake so you don't go hungry. After Lisa touches then all.

  7. Congratulations on selling the RV, fingers crossed that it all goes through. We loved Mudshark and like you Hanger 24 was a disappointment. If you are in Lake Havasu again you should also go to College Street Brewing, I love their Big Blue Van.

    1. You are the third person who had the same opinion as we did on the breweries. We talked about College Street but we were pretty full by then and headed back to Q.

  9. Congratulation on the Sale of your rig and the clean bill of health.
    It could be late by the time you leave Quartzsite so you might just find a Motel Room just like you will when you get back to South Dakota. It'll take a day just to get the Camper warmed up.
    Be Safe and Enjoy your travels.

    It's about time.

  11. We love Mudshark and Al's favorite is their vanilla porter. We went to College Brewery with Steve and Debbie and thought it too was pretty good. Fingers crossed all goes well with the sale.

  15. That's got to feel better to get a deal done! Unfortunately we don't get to see you guys again. Maybe on your Alaska tour. Mudshark sounds like a good stop, we'll put that on our to do list when we get over there. Hopefully the deep freeze weather has moved before you head home!
