Quartzsite, AZ - Plomosa Road 5

Monday, January 10, 2011

Quartzsite, Arizona 40 degrees mostly sunny to 63 degrees with a north breeze.

George & Bob went to the pancake breakfast while Bonnie & Jean went to the Laundromat to do wash. After breakfast George & Bob went to check out the tool vendors and stopped by the Laundromat helping to carry out the clothes. We stopped for a propane gas tank to be filled on the way back to Buster.

Today the solar panels were putting electric into the batteries at 14.5 amperes per hour, three panels 7.4 amp per hour rating laying flat on the roof. I have one panel on the left side I can adjust and did that, increasing the amp hours to 20.6 amperes per hour. I used my ladder on Buster's left side after putting the table slide in to reach the panel. Buster is headed east and the raised panel gets a better look ar the southern sky where the sun is located.

We took a ride to Bouse today just to see what is up the road from our camping location. The ride was up thru the Plomosa Mountain range into the next valley about twenty three miles to Bouse. There is not much there, smaller town than Quartzsite. There is more BLM camping areas on the other side of the mountains.
