Staying Busy at Lake Mead N.R.A.

Lake Mead N.R.A.

Wild Burros of Echo Bay

We've been staying busy with our volunteer work.  We are averaging 80+ hours a month driving the back country roads. The picture above is in a cove at the end of Approved Road 37A on the Arizona side of Lake Mojave.

While at home, I've been working on cutting and hanging solar screens in preparation for this summer. Several times last year we had wished we had them. The solar screens really help to reduce heat from coming through our dual pane windows. The screens are fastened with snaps that required drilling into the rv to place the studs along with a dab of silicone. Although we don't need them now, we've already noticed a difference when the sun is low and shining directly in the windows.

I also worked on getting the oil changed and the tires rotated on the jeep which now has 24393 miles on it. The truck has 23000 miles on it and I had its tires rotated. The rear duals are showing wear with only 8/32 of tread vs 12/32 on the fronts. I'm sure I'll be replacing them this year.

  2. If you are springing for a a new AC, you might want to consider getting one with a heat pump. It's a little bit more, but can save you a lot of propane when the night temps stay above 45.
