New Tooth, New Hat….New Rig??!
Just a quick post today to finish up our stay in Yuma this past week. On Wednesday we had the lovely RV Sue over for dinner, allowing Paul to show off his cooking skills and all of us to enjoy a fabulous evening chat. The next day we knocked across the border with our new buddies Kelly & Mike to get my new crown installed. We celebrated the event with $1 tacos at one of the (very) local taco joints and margaritas strong enough to put hair on your chest. The latter got everyone so relaxed they ALL signed up for teeth cleanings, and once my pearly whites were once again gorgeous I topped off the event with a brand new $15 hat.
New tooth + new hat = all is right with the world again.
I’m extremely pleased with my new crown. Excellent fit and no more food under the gums. I have a feeling this will be the “keeper” and I’m still very happy with Dr. Eva Urena. She does careful cosmetic work and I’d definitely recommend her to others for the same.
With the raging success of my new “makeover” we decided to go ahead and get one for the rig too. In case you didn’t know it Yuma is actually one of the cheapest place in the entire country to get a wash and wax for the RV. For our rig size a basic wash runs around $35 while full wash n’ hand wax runs $120-$130. This is compared to $350-$400 just about anywhere else! Most of the teams use RO water (Reverse Osmosis = prevents spots from the local ultra-hard water) and hand-wax with Maguire’s wax. There are slews of guys offering these services in the local “White Sheets” (a free advertising handout which you can find at the laundromat or other such places), and they all have pretty decent reputations. Most of them service RV parks, but a few will meet you at your boondocking site or in town. I’d gotten several recommendations of Robert’s RV Wash & Wax (928-919-4881) from the forums and agreed to meet him downtown on Sat AM. He arrived with a team of 3 guys and within a few hours “the beast” was dreamy clean. The job wasn’t perfect, but our girl looks infinitely better and we were very happy with the results. For the price it really can’t be beat.
Not quite a new rig….but aaaaalmost (did I have you going?)!
That’s it for Yuma sunsets. Yesterday we arrived in the massive & utter nuttiness that is Quartzsite and for the first time EVER we’ve joined a group. I have a feeling we’ll be leaving this place with a few $$ less in our pockets, but a load more friends. More on that to come…..
