I suspect we will have to dump at some point ...

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!

Looks like plenty of options for dumping.

Sterling is a 60 mile drive northeast. I live close to the Moline airport.

You could also lease the portable full hookup (50A, water, sewer and cable TV), previously demonstrated by former forum staffer Ron Ruward at the QZ rally site.

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.

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.

Hey Jeff, itís been a couple of years but Sheryl and I have a new unit and are planning to be in Quartzsite for the show and hopefully a couple of those days with the Forum.  Round of golf would be a fun outing.  Starting south from BC Canada tomorrow.

Jeff, our plans just changed so we're going to miss Quartzsite this year.  That's a rarity!  Jerry's sister and family are gathering that week in San Diego and we haven't seen them for a couple of years so we need to do that instead.

We've never been to Quartzite.  We are currently wintering in Phoenix and planning a day trip to Quartzite during the rally.  Good idea?  If so, any advice?

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.

Tom

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.

That's right, Don.  Those were the rules from Helaine the Enforcer.  Not many people wanted to cross her, so we all faithfully wore our name tags.  ;D
