Nothing Much Happening

Tecopa, CA.

54 deg. clear, N. wind @ 2 mph.

Forecast = Partly cloudy. High of 75F. Winds from the NE at 5 to 10 mph.

There was nothing much planned for Monday except to do laundry. Well, that's about all that happened. Jim was out and about visiting with neighbors, playing with the computer and just kicking back. Linda did laundry, read some and worked on her Family Tree Maker program.

Yesterday, the plan was to go back to Death Valley to check out some more sights, but Jim woke up with a plugged ear and really didn't feel too well, so those plans were scrapped.

Instead, they took a ride, first into Tecopa to mail a letter and then up to Shoshone to buy some 87 octane for CLT and some bread and chips.

Oh, and the price of gas, 30 miles from nowhere and at the only station for many miles around?

$5.29 !!!!!!!

Now, the price of gas in California is high, but not that high. They just charge that much because they're the only station around and people have to pay it.  : (   Then next closest station is in Pahrump, NV., about 25 miles east of Shoshone, (where I'm told it's much cheaper), or in Death Valley itself, where the price is even higher!!!

Jim's feeling better today, so I think they're going to head into Death Valley. It should be interesting, and I'm counting on Jim taking some more photos so I can post them here.

A Point to Ponder : The only place you'll find success before work is in the dictionary.

  1. Thanks for the heads up on the gas price. We will keep our topped off so we won't have to pay that ridiculous price.
    Glad Jim is feeling better today. Enjoy!
