I was invaded by gnatsI was sitting in my trailer, quietly reading a book after dinner when I noticed some gnats buzzing around my head. I looked up and was appalled to see the light cover, well, covered in gnats! So were the mini-blinds, and as I looked around, I realized that the other light covers were also covered in gnats.
They were so small that the window screens couldn't keep them out. I sprayed with some insect spray, but it barely made a dent! And it was way too hot to close the windows. I sprayed and cleaned, and sprayed and cleaned, turning out lights as I went until I was in the dark - but still pretty surrounded by gnats. Fortunately, they didn't bite.
I'm outta here!!
I hate bugs! So, even though my campsite is very convenient to Yuma - I'm moving. Fortunately, I had spent the whole day in Yuma taking care of various errands - life goes on while on the road and the car needed maintenance, the laundry needed doing, I needed to pick up mail (and mail the monkeys!), there were groceries to be bought, etc. So, I was in pretty good ship to head off to who-knows-where!
Where to go next?
After only 3 days in Yuma, I didn't want to have a big driving day. I decided to try Imperial Dam LTVA, just about 50 miles from my current spot. I'd heard about it from a guy while I was in Quartzite - maybe he's even still there.
