We have not done much planning for this trip as far as exactly where we will be going in California and how long we will be staying at various places. We thought that we would stay here in Quartzsite for 2 nights to for us to do a some planning.
Late in the afternoon Tom decided to install the new kitchen faucet. So like every project (so it seems) after getting the old torn out, he realized that he needed to go to a hardware store for something to complete the job. This time he needed water line extenders. So we went to the local hardware store and sure enough they didn't have what was needed. So off to Blythe, Ca., 22 miles away, when we located the Ace hardware store it was 6:02pm and they were closed. A young man was pushing carts back to the store so we asked him if anyway for us to purchase something from the store. He first said that they were closed but with more persuasion he said he would ask his supervisor and by luck Tom got the necessary parts. Returning to the motorhome the job was completed and a late dinner was eaten- and no more leaking faucet.
