Jackass Invasion at South Mesa

Recently, we had an event here at South Mesa for which we have been waiting, but weren’t sure would occur. I was minding my own business at my trailer around midday when I heard a loud braying. Immediately I knew what was up-we had visitors right in camp, burro visitors, that is. IMG_20160308_163148_510

They had marched (or trotted) right into camp and were holding court at the restroom. I meandered over towards them in a cautious manner in case one of them was an alpha Jack male protecting his Jennies. There was a certain degree of aggressiveness towards the spectators, but they were mostly looking for a free food handout.

Soon there were about a dozen onlookers, including some youngsters and the burros allowed them to gently pet them. Red Fox arrived about that time, back from her daily walk and shot a picture of a Hawk with a Jackass.


Soon the burros grew tired of the campground and headed out to the hills. If we had fed them they probably would have lingered, but once you feed them, they keep returning and will even butt their heads against your trailer to announce they want more food.


Our ride to Parker AZ and our visit to Randy’s Oasis Hamburger Emporium in Stone Cabin AZ

On Wednesday, March 9, we took a motorcycle ride to Parker AZ, which is about 100 miles north of us on Route 95. The weather was perfect (starting out around 60 and winding up around 80, with clear blue skies and the usual non-existent humidity). We carefully checked our gas because the first station is about 70 miles away. We did gas up in Quartzsite and then traveled on to Parker for lunch. Fish and Shrimp tacos with chips and salsa-delicious!IMG_20160309_131913_523-1

On the way back we drove into a place that we had passed many times but at which we had never stopped. It’s called Randy’s Oasis Hamburgers and is in the middle of nowhere on Route 95. Randy sells hamburgers, fries, deep fried mushrooms, cold drinks and home made ice cream treats, including Date Shakes to die for.


We chatted Randy up, found out he was from Washington State and somewhere back East before that. We also chatted up a couple from Lancaster County in Pennsylvania who run a farm back there and spend their winters in AZ.

We split a Date Shake, hung out for a while and then headed home. A fabulous day all around. Meanwhile, back home in New England, it was in the 70s, so we did not have the usual bragging rights, since many people were riding back there as well.

Meanwhile,we have started packing up and will be moving North and East  over the 2 1/2 months. Stay tuned for more adventures.
