With the Govt Shut down the long term areas stopped issuing passes. They are not letting those with out passes in the long term areas. RV campers headed to the 14 day free areas instead. Plomosa Rd 14 day free is usually mostly off roaders and very few of us but now seeing the Blue hair land Barron’s taping off huge sections. I’ve been known to blast right through the tape. We’re camped in the gasoline alley cul de sac Section and do everything all night long the blue hairs hate. Impact wrench opera, bright lights, loud music drunks yelling, Gibson exhausts and Gibson guitars all nite long. We rolled out the X3 and headed down Tyson wash to Al’s Pizza. Hand tossed with a full bar. Good place, just ok but not bad pizza located right next to the wash. Makes most his money January through March so a bit pricy but we get it. Cocktail girls and bartenders are way cool. Good selection of IPAs. Desert Magic brewed in LHC. The gem and mineral show is going for the next few weeks. Contractors and landscapers and decorators hit town for a few days to check it out and buy often in huge quantities. Best time to buy are on the last few days the vendors don’t want to haul off their displays. The big tent has the usual reinvented brooms and toothpicks and stainless bushings for your ass. Our RV has oddball light bulbs that I’ve been trying to replace with LED so I’ll hit the LED guys booth. More Pix and a few tales in a few hours.
