Truck camping in the Quartzsite LTVA is more social than I am comfortable with, but get over it fast as I am asked for dinner, given an organic apple, hugged by friends from last year, librarian remembers my name, much unexpected joy.
The library gets pretty full in the season. Libraries are a major part of anyone’s life if they are truck camping. This is where, for no money, you can use their internet, read local newspapers, check out books, buy books and get out of 95 degree sunshine to sit in an air conditioned place. Heavenly. I try to donate money whenever I can. The libraries in tiny towns are usually under funded and under staffed … but the turtles are taken care of!
Staying in touch with family and friends is so easy thanks to local libraries.
Lilith loves coming back to the same spot as last year. Sheltered from the worst of the wind, great solar opportunities, warm sunshine when it gets chilly in February.
