Blythe 2, CA

This should be my last day in California. The Arizona border is just a few miles down the street. This was a very quiet rest day. I even took an afternoon nap.

All ready for church! Yes, my shorts are wet. I got toothpaste splatter on them, so wiped them off with a washcloth. It will dry in a few minutes outside. By the way, I really like the shelf in my room, which is perfect for doing computer work. And the shelf in the bathroom is just right for charging devices.

I attended the local Calvary Chapel, where I met Ken, Jimmy, and Rudy. Afterwards, I had the Shrimp Enchilada Plate at the Courtesy Coffee Shop.

Saw this sign on a telephone pole in town. What could it possibly be for? Anyone?
goodbye comet sweats
I really like my new shorts, and have decided that I don’t need my bulky sweats. I will leave them behind in the motel room with a note that they can dispose of them as they see fit. I originally got those sweats from a dumpster, anyway.

I went back to Sizzler for dinner, and got the Craft Salad Bar, which would normally be $12, but showed my room key for the discount. The cashier told me that beverages were to the right, which surprised me, because I hadn’t ordered a beverage. When I looked at the receipt, I realized that she had rung up the Senior Salad Bar, which includes a beverage. I’m technically not a senior by their measure – I just look like one. Good dinner.

The goal for tomorrow is Quartzsite, AZ, which should be straightforward if I leave in the cool of the morning. It’s just about 25 miles away, and one climb. If I’m feeling really strong, I might try for Salome, which is another 40 miles. However, I’m not optimistic about doing another 3 hills in the heat of the afternoon.

Miles today: 2.9 (rest day)

  1. Yes, looking good! The paystubs sign is probably for seasonal, migrant, and freelance workers who don’t receive regular paystubs when they are paid. To rent an apartment or buy a car on credit, they may have to show paystubs as proof of income. There are services that can generate stubs. I assume there’s a small price, and hopefully it’s legitimate.

      1. That’s what I thought, too. The phone number links to, aka Doculeaf it’s a “business resource center”, and probably is if used legitimately. But their T&C page emphasizes that they only sell novelty items. Pricing is like “1 stub $50, w/ verification $75”. And says “You decide how much money the stub shows you earn”. Hmm…
