Okay, first off, a question.
While driving around Bullhead City and Fort Mojave on the Arizona side of the river, I noticed these flood channels, which are common in the desert areas. However, these ones are broken up into separate channels and I am curious why this would be. Any answers?
The first pic is where the channel flows under the main road, coming toward the camera.
The next shot is from the same spot looking downstream – with four divided channels
While on the water theme, just north of Laughlin and Bullhead City is Davis dam, one of many on the Colorado. This one though is an earth-fill dam and does not have the high profile of other dams such as the Hoover, Glen Canyon, etc.
I spent much of the afternoon exploring back roads north along the reservoir edge within the National Recreation Area. Most of the area is deserted and undeveloped, but in the central core is a huge marina complex with hundreds of houseboats and lots of other watercraft.
Really enjoying the 5th wheel so far – it is a bit of an adjustment to travel styles. It is nice to be able to leave it behind when touring around is possible with an empty pickup instead of the relative size of the truck camper. On the other hand, you have to remember what to take along for the day, ie food, clothing, tools. With the truck camper everything is always there with you.
But having your own shower onboard – with a skylight – is sure a bonus in areas where other shower alternatives are not available. And I am pleasantly surprised by the number of off-air TV channels that are available in HD.
Not to mention the huge fridge and freezer space. And don’t get me started about storage space! There are just SO many storage areas in this rig. Most of them are still empty – which is a good thing for weight control – but you have a hard time remembering where you put something! In the camper, it was always in one of about places. Ah, the trials and tribulations!
