Touchdown In Quartzsite

Gritting our teeth from all the wind blown sand that resulted from yesterday's dust storm, we did a quick breakfast at the casino and hit the road to clear skies and little wind. 

Once again we enjoyed the scenery as we drove along I-10 into Arizona.  We made it to Quartzsite with 50,000 of our closest RV friends, not counting the thousands more who were already camped out in the BLM lands surrounding the town.

We signed into La Posa South Long Term Visitors Area (LTVA) and went looking for our Escapees group.  We eventually unhooked the Element and drove that around, with no results.

Our group had a white tent and that was what we were keying on, unsuccessfully.  We gave up and made a phone call to Jeri, who had invited us, she jumped into her Jeep, tracked us down and led us to the group location.

We found out the white tent we were looking for blew down in yesterday's wind storm, so we felt better about being so lost.

We intend to be here at least 5 or 6 days and we'd love to meet with any of our blogging friends that might be out and about.  Feel free to contact us at our email address (located on the very bottom of our blog post) and we'll work out some get together.

Stand by for our adventures here in Quartzsite.

  4. Hmmm. I thought I posted but maybe I didn't. You sure didn't waste any time in getting this post up and I just saw you at the campfire! So, if any bloggers invite you to dinner, we all have to go too. (Did I scare them away?)

  11. So sorry once again we missed you guys...we moved over to the Big Tent to work. Have fun, those guys are a blast...we miss the nightly campfires.

    Maybe if you guys stick around after this show ends, we can get together. We think we are staying for the next show but we will be staying at a RV Park right next to the tent.

  12. Although a potluck sounds fun, as you know it gets really cold, really fast here in the desert. May I suggest a happy hour with snacks? Everybody can bring their own beverage and chair and snack to share. Tomorrow is supposed to be windy again, so any other day is fine with me. (We have something on Wednesday afternoon, but can work around it.)

  13. P.S. Better yet, an early happy hour at 3 or even 2, so we have lots of time to yack before it gets cold.
