We've been out three weeks here in AZ, and yesterday we headed west (from PHX) towards the LA area where we will spend a couple of dizzy Disney days, then back to Sacramento to rest, refit, and get ready for our July adventure north.
Since we are a couple of days early we decided to dry camp in Quartzsite, almost exactly where we were three weeks ago with the Casita Gathering.
It's wonderfully lonely out here in the desert after almost everyone else has gone home. The clouds even parted for a while giving us a wonderful moonless view of the stars.
I was kidding Chris about this being the perfect scenerio to be abducted by a UFO. I spun the campfire tale a little too well, because shortly after that a couple of low flying UFO's (that turned out to be 2 two engine military transports) flying over the mountains on the other side of I-10 turned towards us. At the time, we couldn't really tell what they were. Add to that they were lit strangely, and what were they doing out at night?
As they approached, I looked over at Chris. She was looking a bit panicked, and ready to run.
Where are you going I asked her? To the trailer, I'm not getting probed by aliens.
Shorty thereafter we realized they were just airplanes. I wish I had a picture of that.
So this one will have to do.
