Bob and I are going to give it a shot again this year. We may even make it this time. Bob is doing so well, it looks like I may have to buy him a Christmas present even.  ;D

So put Bob and Caryl Pappas down for the 19th through the 27th.

I'm going to try to meet up with you guys for a happy hour or two, and perhaps a Jeep ride(or several).  I've got a reservation at a park in town but, as we all know, plans can change(mine have, twice, in the last 36 hours).
So, maybe we'll see you there, and maybe we'll be stuck in Arkansas for the winter.  We'll see.

We, after all, are retired and flying by the seat of our pants has been our lifestyle for years.

We really didn't want to spend the winter in Arkansas again.  However, I wasn't able to justify leaving the Grand Canyon and traveling back to Arkansas(business and doctors), then leaving Arkansas for Quartzite, only to have to go back to Pensacola in April for my son's wedding, and then blast back across to the Grand Canyon by May 1 for my hosting job.
I did get them to move the wedding a week.  That way I don't have to be in Pensacola on the 28th of April and Jacob Lake Arizona on the 1st of May.

Plans at this point(could change in the next 20 minutes for all I know)are for Quartzite next year.

We plan to attend this year and hope to arrive very close to the 19th, and expect to stay the duration.
Seems like travel plans are never "finalized" until the road is behind us.

Theresa and I are looking forward to this new experience and meeting you all.

This will be our longest boondock to date. I suspect we will have to dump at some point during the stay but will be fun to see just how long we can make it.

You can either drive across the highway and wait in line to dump, or you can call the honey wagon:

WB Heflin Sanitation, tel. (760) 922-8354.

One of our members (no names) had to call them immediately after arriving at QZ. Hope you last longer than that  ;D

There is fresh water and a dump less than a mile away if needed. For some boondocking becomes a challenge to last the week while others just plan on making the trip to the dump station mid-week, your (or Theresa's) choice. As is mentioned in the info on QZ arrive with full water, fuel, and propane and empty holding tanks.


We lived in Sterling for several years, are you close?


We all look forward to meeting you both!

Good morning Jeff, Margaret and I will be arriving on January 19th  we are running a little late this year due to a few Dr. Appointments. Nothing serious just yearly check ups. Look forward to trying the new to us diesel out on a longer trip. We have been doing a few short trips but not like the 1300 miles to Quartzite. Getting out of Texas takes a little time but we should arrive or the 19th looking forward to seeing everyone.

Sure, but it will be a long day.  Phoenix is about 2 hours from Quartzsite.  Be sure to pack drinking water and chairs for the fire ring.  I-10 runs directly east - west, so you'll want to avoid driving into the sun but if you come out in the morning and go back in the evening the sun will be behind you.

Or you could bring the rig, even if only for a night or two.  Fill your fresh water tank and empty the waste tanks before you come.  It's only $40 to boondock for up to two weeks at the rally site, and there's plenty of room.  Nothing says you have to stay the whole time.

Certainly it's a good idea. Check out the map into the forum rally area from the link Jeff provided at the beginning of this topic, including looking at the pictures, then ask any questions you need to in order to clarify those direction for yourself -- you might also look the area up on Google Earth and try to "travel in G.E. to the forum site. Also, be sure to mention here which day you're coming (when you decide) so we can watch for you. We have "happy hour" (BYOB) each day at 4 PM, gathered around the fire ring.

We will be one of the first-timers.

Not sure I can handle Happy-Hour "every day", but will give it a good try. lol

Does everyone bring firewood? Can it be scavenged? If not, I assume it will be for sale close by?

I am planning on coming to Q a few days early and setting up.

I am going to leave the Mustang at home in Lake Havasu so I can carry several extra things for the project shop.

I will also bring a large roll around BBQ grill and three portable canopies.

I reordered LED supplies, some solar parts, a few flat screen TV mounts, and lots of hardware parts.

The deal is that any of the parts are free as well as tools, but you then need to pass it on in some way to someone else in the future.

If there is something special that you need for a project then try to bring it with you although there are places to get RV parts in Q as well as a hardware store on hwy 95 just north of the interstate.

I also finally got a Venturi exhaust for the generator.  I think I upset some people the last time I was in Q for not having one.

I will probably be there about the 16th if anyone is around to help me set up the canopies.

See you there.

If I remember right from past Q rallies, there are only four rules for the rally.

1. Where your name tag.
2. Where your name tag.
3. Where your D__ name tag.
4. No pets at events where there is food.

We actually only had/have three rules - two name tag rules, one with “damn,” and the no hairy kids at food functions rule. The rules remain in force so come with a name tag !!!

Best laid plans....you know how that goes. Anyways, if I can get outside and work on my Transmission issue with the MH, I'll still make it, if not then next year. I think I have it figured out, just a matter of getting out to see if I can try the fix(electrical issue code 00-35 or something like that, a hit and miss issue).  May I wish all a very Happy New Year!

There is a flag at the site, (La Posa Tyson Wells).

After having Trailer brake problems on the way to KOFA I went straight to the Rally site in Quartzsite.  I will take my time figuring out the solution but I am safe here for now.

I walked around but did not find anyone from the Forum here this early.

Anyway there is a flag to help find the place, (assuming I found the right place, it looks like the same place).

Looks like I'm stuck in Pahrump until the first part of next week.  The transmission went out in the Bronco II, my only toad.  I took it to a transmission shop, originally they said they'd have it finished by Friday, but today their rebuild guy got called out of town due to a death in the family so it won't be ready until sometime next week.

On the plus side, it was a very graceful failure.  The transmission started dragging, slowing the car as I was cresting the summit on NV 160 going into Las Vegas.

I pulled over, shut it down and did a visual inspection of the transmission and fluid.  Then when I restarted it, the transmission went into limp mode, staying in third gear (direct drive).  Neutral and reverse also worked normally.

I was able to drive it back to Pahrump and towed it to the transmission shop yesterday.  If they hadn't already pulled the tranny I'd bring it to Quartzsite as-is, then get it fixed when I get back here.

I found this site, with questions and answers from 2013. They should still apply....

https://www.desertusa.com/dusablog/blm-faq-government-shutdown.html

In it I found this answer....

Will I be able to visit BLM-managed public lands?

All recreation facilities, including campgrounds, boat ramps etc., will be closed. If it is a non- developed recreational destination with no controlled access, you may visit. However, there will be no services and there will no non-emergency services available.

On the other hand, the Trump administration says they want the parks to remain open if the government shuts down, though with reduced services.  Unlike 2013 when Obama directed them to close the gates and erect barricades.  If true, this is significant because both BLM and NPS are part of the Executive Branch.

Government Shutdown May Not Close National Parks

Of course, all of this is speculation until someone who is actually on the scene lets us know what's going on.

Government Shutdown

For the RV Forum people. The government shutdown will have little or no effect on us. According to the attendants at the check in booth they will be there as they are volunteer people.  (you can't slash their wages)
The dump stations will most likely be closed.
Apparently, according to the volunteers, the fresh water cannot be shut off for people in the desert however it is shut down early in the day because of the demand on the well.
We arrived yesterday and there are already 16 Forum RVs here so come on in.
I cannot vouch for other than our area.

Just came from the pay station. The pay station was instructed this morning to close, dump stations and water are open now but subject to change.

According to the host "come on in and park wherever you want" it is on your honor now.

Confession, Yesterday during informal introductions of new attendees, I announced a morning  walk at 10 am. to get exercise and  empty trash bags. Wind  blew so hard  all night that it  kept me awake. Low last night was 52.  I did not  make it out to see if  anyone went on walk.  There is always tomorrow.

Looks like  those who arrive today may  get a "discount" if the kiosk is not collecting  funds.  Heard that  long, long, long time attendees Richard and Linda Sharp are not going to make it this year.  Linda is recovering from pneumonia so  the desert is just not a good place for her this year. 
Talked with Fred Thomas this morning.  Said he was first here in  1995. He  is in Maine bundled  up at zero degrees.

I forgot to pack the  RVForum signs but I will still be taking  photos of attendees and do up a collage for posting "you were here in 2018 " after our  rally!

Ok typical desert weather. It clouded up and rained this afternoon.  Temps dropped to  50. At  4pm ( semi designated  happy hour time, it was too wet, windy and to  sit out.  BUT at 5 pm it had cleared so I went to "sit out."  Was the  only one there. Note lone chair in one photo.

Finally was joined  by friendly RVForum folks as we seek  framily! Or was it the brownies?   Introductions again and we are picking up members enticed  by free tools, parts and service by Bill Waugh and his stacker full of goodies.  ( man cave)

Finally someone suggested we start the fire.  DONE but we all bailed before it finished.  Not all of us are from Minnesota!

Thanks Tom,

Yep,  I like to post photos!

Forgot to mention  Len in photo   above.  He spilled his drink into  his chair! He pouted about the loss of a good drink just because he was adjusting his seating!   No problemo, he got a dry chair and started out again!

Gotta love the resilience of RVers.

To  cadee2c

Welcome to your first time attendance at an  RVForum rally in Quartzsite AZ.   Many of us know your RV has been here before  (driven by Ned and Lorna Reiter.)
We also appreciate (big time) that you hunker down when weather is cold.  We heard by campfire tonight that the big tent is crowded! Even at 9 am.

So please everyone, join us at happy hour  Sunday to tell us all your Quartzsite purchases!

Looks as if we'll be a bit delayed. Got to Santa Fe last night (beautiful day, but windy), but we woke up this morning to a couple of inches of snow. It seems to have stopped now, but I'm extremely reluctant to drive this rig in the snow so, unless things change, we'll spend an extra day here. Will update should things change.

It just occurred to me that many of you may not have known about the NWS Graphical Forecasts, which can be found on this site. Precip probabilities, temperature forecasts and more are shown on a map -- you can even zoom in for more detail. It's very helpful for determining when you can travel where.

As Terry's photo captured,  despite cold  winds a whole bunch of us  gathered for introductions at the  happy hour tonight.

Most popular couple were the  Nash's  as  they brought  pictured sandwiches to share! 
Caryl ventured out but  hubby was too cold to join us.
 I saw  Dan and Marge arrive but they  skipped happy hour too.
 Phil and Wendy Lou (pictured)  from an Diego area joined us by car as they  enjoy the luxury of hook ups at a park in town.  Hoping they can come learn how to boon dock when  they return next year.

 Met Jerry who is a cancer surviver and friends with Jim.(Paul's brother)   He trailers a very sweet Mercedes  behind his rig!
 Henry shared that he is a "Professional RV Tester" having had 3 RV's within the past 9 months.  Margaret was not so sure this is a good occupation!

Gary made an appearance but Maria is still coughing so she was absent.
Ann and Paul  spent 2 hours in line today at the dump and we did not see them  out and about this afternoon.
 Wishard friends',  the Coties' ( pictured) enjoyed the day trip to Desert Bar today and have the T shirt to prove it! They brought  Aspen logs to  burn for our fire.

Bill again announced his shop is open for tools, parts and repairs.  He is such a generous person.
Joe and Doreen repositioned their rig to get more sun and her hand signals were  the entertainment of my afternoon.  They finally got her in the slip!

 Betty shared that  Mike and Wendy are absent while  they tend to Gordon who is their 13 1/2 year old  Labrador. Gordon is not doing well and we all send hugs of support to  Mike and Wendy as they face the next steps with their fur baby.  Betty explained what it means to be in the  RVForum.  We are  friends who support each other. We are like  family to each other. In other words we are FRAMILY!

Thanks for the updates Betty. Best wishes for Gordon. We were next to Mike and Wendy in Moab a few years back. Gordon had a seizure, but came out OK. When pups are having a hard time, it is always difficult on the parents.

I understand that some Forumites are wandering around without name badges. Let me remind you :


Rule #1 : Wear your name badge
Rule #2 : Wear your damn name badge


Don’t make me come out there and make you behave !!!


Hugs
Wendy


P.s. I remember that, too, Sarge 😊

On a serious note, sorry that Gordon is not doing well.  Maria and I along with our two furry kids, are sending hugs.

Looks like the shutdown is or will be over soon and life in Quartzsite should be back to normal before long.  So save your pennies and don't drive to the Pit Stop or other location for water and to dump.    :)

I did not take  any photos today and I even skipped the first part of  Happy Hour.  We discovered a good time to visit the BIG TENT is at 3:30 pm.  You can get front row parking spots and there is lots of  room in the aisles.  I made a beauty product purchase.  Watched the  guy cut vegetables with the  exact  utensil I bought last year.  It is still in the plastic  bag so I watched the demo to see how to use it.

We ran over to  Taco Tios and had a bite of Mexican food.  Got  back and Happy Hour was still happy.


I did my annual pass around  a white envelope should  anyone care to contribute to this RVForum of ours. I collect money and  mail to  Tom Jones to run the  RVForum.  I also noted there is a DONATE  Button on the  top line menu of forum should your credit card be more convenient.  I'm here till Sunday morning for envelope return.

Some of us have saved money from  what we learned here on  RVForum, for others it has cost us a lot  when we see just " what we need" from our  framily.  Tee hee

Jeff and Sue,
You are missed.  I've  designated the potluck to be  a 1:00  "luncheon" thing on Saturday 1/27.   Mostly to make sure we get the warmest part of the day.

Would  love to see you and Sue join us.  Any others on their way out? Does the early time  of 1pm  work for you.  I just made that up tonight.  I miss Wendy who helped form the rules!

The new  people are really fun and following all the rules!

It kills me to read this thread. I am so jealous, I wish I was there with all of you. I am there in spirit. At least I have the central Florida mini rally this week but the problem is that it is too short and there is no 4 wheel drive option.  >:(
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

When we left the Canyon last Oct, plans were to be in Q for Dec-Feb.  Then my kid announce his marriage(in FLA, in April)and we decided to stay in Arkansas for the winter as opposed to making the cross country trip twice(host job at the Canyon again this year).  So now, here we sit in Arkansas with our coach in the shop with frozen/broken water pipes, waiting on the insurance guy to give it the okay.
Probably would have been cheaper to make the 2 drives.  Enjoy the desert, folks.

It  was a beautiful day. Mid 70's.  I saw lots of activity. Some went to tent, some went  RV shopping some went to get apple fritters , some did all, some went to Bill's for final LEDS . His shop has closed. He will pull out in morning when he gets up and  he had  a bunch of help closing up shop this afternoon. Bill is what this RVForum is all about , helping others.   Thank you
Bill  and we missed you Rene!

Next set of announcements or information  or gossip of the day Tuesday Jan 23, 2018

A few of us ventured out off road all "air downed"  to find pictographs we  had found in past RVForum events. A deep cave revealed some critters has slept there !
 We missed  Marsha and Wendy ( past leaders)  as we found first set of pictographs  but  the  corn holes and  one mile hike were not to be found!  So the only thing to do was to go to  Bakery in Quartzsite to find Fritters.  A minor delay as  Terry rescued a Wyoming Van who got stuck in the wash.  On to the patio dining and not pictured was the trip to  LA Mesa RV where Henry showed us his  newest vision of his next RV.  A new  40  foot Phaeton!  Stay tuned

Someone asked for  photos so here goes. If you want names you may have to be here cause I'm not good at renaming photos or details.  But I assure you these folks are real .

Pam Nash wins hands down best  snacks as she provided  a BLT  roll today on the heels of her  little sandwiches yesterday!
Larry and Loretta Dodd arrived this afternoon. Whoo hoo friends!


 The t shirt of the day is worn  by Tom and is   illustrated here. Love the new guys!

I love Stella Artois Beer as does Debbie and her fancy cozy!
Larry and Mary Ann make it here  after battling weather.  Welcome!

The RVForum sign has survived floods, summer neglect and then finally digging it up,  new markers,  spray paint  and care from Dan and  artistry from Joe.  Bravo. 2018 Dan this is your first photo of 2018, more to follow... 

We miss Wendy!  They told me the Happy Hour was out of control as  animals were now eating on the tables at Happy  hour....

or was it a that Henry bought a dog named Spot?   Lots of laughs, you had to be here!
