3:31 pm - Mountain Time - Thursday - Quartzite, AZ - 56º F, humidity 66%, wind 16 mph out of SSW......partly cloudy.....arrived in Quartzite about 10:15 am after a 2 hour drive through mostly rain. Found a great site in Las Posas West off SR-95 in walking distance to the big tent, but far enough from I-10 so there is no freeway noise.
Wednesday saw us tearing down our camp, folding up the awning mat, stowing the patio awning, putting the last things away in the trailer, then ultimately reinserting the VW Beetle into the trailer just as the sun set.
In the morning before all of the afternoon activity I drove into Surprise to the local O'Reilly's Automotive store to buy some 10-30w oil for our new generator and some Sta-Bil fuel stabilizer additive as required by the warranty and operating instructions, then returned to unpack the new Predator Generator, fill it with oil, then add the Sta-Bil, then fill the fuel tank with 87 octane regular gasoline. The instructions suggested pulling the start rope 20 times to prime the engine, but it only took 15 pulls before she started. I let her run for a few minutes to be sure all was well, and it was.
