Rock



Pete Olson's Rock Band

8:30am - We are sooooo excited this morning! Because this evening we get to see and listen to Pete's newly formed Rock N Roll Band!

You may recall that we Blogged to you about traveling to Jojoba RV Park. Pete phoned and invited us here so we could attend his gig. That's why we are here.

Our good friend Pete has been performing his music for decades! Would you like to listen to Pete singing? Click [Here]

10am - Solar charging Scampy
We checked the Specific Gravity [SG] of Scampy's battery. It was 1.235, indicating 75% charged.

We want to be solar charging when the battery is 75%. So, our Renogy solar panels are now "on the job." By this afternoon, we expect to be at a 1.250 SG, which is 100% charged!

It is sooooo easy to use our Renogy solar!



12 noon - Beat Generation
From the Jojoba library, I checked out, Jack Kerouac's "On the Road."

Have you heard of Jack Kerouac? For me, this is a good read. But a sad story. Because Kerouac's drug of choice seems to be alcohol, and that's what killed him. At only age 47, in 1969, Kerouac died from internal bleeding due to long-term alcohol abuse.

I do not wish to be judgmental of guys like Jack Kerouac. But I am! And I try very hard NOT to be. That's a weakness of mine that is very hard for me to overcome!

I just cannot get my mind around highly talented persons who kill themselves by the use of drugs. Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson, for example [Link].

    1. Hi Bill,

      Thanks Bill. It sure was a fun evening! Good food too.

      I found out when I arrived at Jojoba that I've moved up one place on the waiting list. I'm now #15. 😍
