Ah!  Civilization!  Wickenburg, AZ


Today I start recounting my earlier adventures on the road since I left off with my last post from Quartzsite, AZ at the end of January, 2016.  Yes, I really dropped off the planet after my reports of boondocking in Quartzsite for the big annual RV show there in the desert.  (To read my earlier posts, please click on the January and/or February 2016 archives on the right side of this page.)
