Weather: Well I must be in the summer plan now. I know that some folks out there are still having some very cool weather but here in Truth or Consequences, NM it is hitting 90 today, pretty dang hot being in RV(and not hook to electric). I would be gone from here if not for appointments with the VA Doc, I got to stick it out till at least the end of the month. From looking at the Weather app on my phone it looks like we are in for a hot week and then back down a bit temperature wise, I’ll be looking forward to the back down a bit part.
Wiring: Yesterday Barry and I wired up a couple of 3-way Switches for his RV water pump. It had only one switch in the Kitchen area and we add a second one to the bathroom and make them 3-way so he can turn the water pump on or off from either switch. We could not find any SPDT DC Switches anywhere in this little town so we used 120 AC 3-way switches. I know that is not the best practice but the pump is less than 10 amp(12 Volt) so I think it will not be a problem.
Weekend: The State Parks always picks up a little more activity during the weekends but where we are park, it is not much, just a few folks out for a little weekend fishing. Don’t ask me about what kind or how many they are catching because I do all my fishing at Long John Silvers! However … just watching a bit, I see some of the folks pulling a few in here and there.
Pictures: Of course I was too lazy to get up and go before the sun got harsh 😦 but anyways here is a couple shots of the the red rock cliffs.
Exercise: Yesterday I walked a couple miles near the RV and today I walked around the red rocks a bit.
Weather: It is pretty hot here in Sedona, hopefully it will cool off a bit next week.
Today I have moved and my friend Barry took off to Yuma to get work done on both his trailer and truck.
The last place we was at was over run with Pack Rats, not a good thing at all!
We both hit the road at the same time this morning, my friend headed on and I just move a few miles away. After getting to my new location I headed into the city to get water and do some shopping chores. Didn’t get all my chores done but got a few of them done.
This is the first time this summer that I will be camping in an area without friends around 😦 Hey, I miss you guys! I hope all my friends are doing well and having a good time and I hope Barry has good luck with his repairs!
The weather here is kind of warm but not too bad. Our last day in Flagstaff was way too cold at night (21° F) for sure too cold for me!
Hopefully over the next two weeks I’ll get into Sedona and get some good shots of the red rock mountains!
Pictures: Western Bluebirds taken a bath.
Exercise: I walked 3 miles this morning.
Weather: Cold …. the nights are starting to go below freezing now.
Pictures: Here is a couple of shots of a Dark-eyed Junco (Red-back) with a solid white tail, most just have white on the edge of the tail feathers.
Exercise: I walked about 3 miles this morning.
Weather: We had a big rain last night but it is drying out quickly and today it is beautiful 🙂
Pictures: More Wild Flowers.
Exercise: I walked 3 miles this morning. I dressed in sweatpants, sweatshirt and half can of OFF! That dress was surely a little warm for the walk this morning but it helped to keep the mosquitoes off.
Weather : The monsoons are still active and I can see and hear the thunder and lighting coming this way, so rain is likely.
We had a good rain, the mosquitoes are out!
Pictures: Couple of shots of the Mountain Chickadee taking a bath.
Splish-splash Mountain Chickadee taking a bath!
Exercise: I walked with Jeanne this morning and ended up with 4.2 miles.
Weather: We are getting rain almost everyday since about 10th of this month, good hard rains in this area too. The rain keeps it a bit muddy but given a day without rain or a day that it rains in the late afternoon, it will dry up.
Update to weather: It rain hard and long today, there is a lot of mud.
Pictures: Couple more dead trees from the last area.
Exercise: We had a great walk this morning, just over 4 miles.
Weather: We got just a sprinkle of rain, Help with the dust a bit.
Pictures: Here is another pair of Brown-headed Cowbirds.
As always click a couple of times on the images for a bigger view.
Exercise: We walked for 3.2 miles today.
Weather: It is on the money, just prefect!
Pictures: What??!! We got snow!
Weather: Wow, this surprised me this morning when I got up about 6. I throw on some clothes and ran out to take a few pictures and then climb up on top of the RV and swept the snow off my solar panels. I think it will be gone by noon.
Update; It is about 11am and as I look out the windows of my RV I can not see any snow anywhere and it is already about 50° F.
Exercise: We only walked about 1.75 miles today. It was cold and wet so a little slack is okay for a day.
Update: Added about 3/4 miles in the afternoon.
