Back to the Sunniest Place on Earth

Yes, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, Yuma, AZ is the sunniest place on earth. The sun shines 94% of the daylight hours!

I settled in at "The Q," a fairly new casino on the west side of town. They give you $10 free play if you sign up for the players card. I walked away with a whole $2.50!


The Q is only 2 miles away from the Mexican town of Algodones, and less than a mile from the pet cemetery where Molly is buried. I was happy to see that my headstone held up well.


After my stay at the Q, I moved over to the BLM land behind the VFW on the east side of town, where my WIN friends are gathering for Christmas and New Years.


Next to me is this guy who was here last year in his rig that looks like it's put together with glue and tape. He's a nice guy, though, and very quiet with about 8 solar panels.


Every day, the VFW has a live band, so we get to dance and watch trains go by at the same time.


A few posts ago, I wrote about these automatic fire extinguishers, but the company said they were not currently making them. But Al's RV on Fortuna Rd here has a bunch of them if anyone is interested and in the area.


And last but not least, fellow blogger "Ramblin' River Cat" has 100 days to go until he is fulltime. In the meantime, he is helping all RVers by organizing posts of other fulltimers on various topics. If you are a fulltimer, and interested in contributing, here's his current list of topics.

To see the topics that have already been posted, go to his pages on "Wise Cats," or "JourneyLinks."
