4AM - Decisions, decisions, decisions!
Tons of things are going around in my head! First off, I have to decide if I am going to remain in Yuma, Arizona for a week. You may have read in yesterday's post, that I found a Big Foot Leveler dealer here in Yuma.

Whether to install those Big Foots is another decision to be made. As Reader Devin posted in ShoutBox, "George, why would you spend thousands to install Big Foot levelers when you only need to replace the bronze nut in the levelers you have every couple of years? Why not just replace all the bronze nuts in Mr. Levelers now for a few dollars and be set for another two years?"

But that is not all. I have long wondered why fulltime RVers stay here in Arizona for the winter, instead of going into Mexico. It is somewhat cold here in Arizona, compared to the lovely warm weather of Aticama. If I stayed in Yuma for a week, I could talk to a zillion RVers here and find out the answer to that question.

There are other mysterious things about the desert that I wonder about. On the way to Yuma yesterday, I passed Imperial Dunes. Now you may likely think my imagination ran away with me when I tell you that I saw perhaps 10,000 RVers [maybe more!] camped in small RV communities out there in the desert.

They had come to Imperial Dunes simply to run up and down the huge sand dunes in dune buggies, ATVs and motorcyles! Can you imagine that?

10AM - Heading out for Gila Bend.
Well, I've been thinking all morning about those levelers. On board MsTioga, are two backup bronze nuts for the time when the nuts in the jacks wear out. That should do me fine for several years. So, I've decided not to buy those Big Foot Leveling jacks.

We are now heading out of Yuma, Arizona and heading for Gila Bend!

Are you wondering about fulltiming in Arizona?
Perhaps you are an RVer who is thinking about possibly becoming a fulltimer? And wondering about Arizona as a place to stay during the winter?

Yuma, Arizona is a city with tons of places to stay. RV campgrounds are found practically one on top of the other. If you like socializing with other RVers, you will likely love Yuma, Arizona. Yuma has all of the shopping places that you might want.

MsTioga and The Team put our seal of approval on Yuma, Arizona. In fact, all of southwest Arizona would be a wonderful place for you to explore in your RV!

4PM - Nite Camped in Gila Bend.
We have made our Nite Camp behind a church in the Town of Gila Bend, Arizona. The Sun is already setting, even this early in the afternoon.

Tonite we will be eating another Thanksgiving meal. Love that turkey, dressing, gravy and all that stuff!
