Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Day Trips

We bought a book called Stone Cabins from the naked book seller http://jpgmag.com/photos/712137 click link to see.
 
The book has a list of 19 day trips around the "Q" to see old stone cabins and ghost towns and mines. We have done the first one and found this old house up in the hills.

This is called Spanish Wall.

Kinda looks like a Dodge commercial .


Not a bad little fixer upper you think?

It's got a great view.
 


Angela likes the idea not having to clean the windows.
 


 
There is a active mine on this site also.
 

Only 18 more day trips to go. Thing's here in Q are picking up and the flea markets are popping up everyday and the desert rats(RV'ers) are moving in.

By the time you're done, you're really going to know the area. A fun way to spend the time.

Interesting places out there. We'll have to try some out when we get to Quartzite. Like your Sioux Falls t-shirt....we've got a couple of similar ones...

I'd say you have a little work ahead of you with that fixer-upper.

Glad to see you getting out into the desert and doing some exploring.

You can always find interesting places no matter where you are.
