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 !!!

We had name tags made at the big tent last year, and we leave them in the trailer. So much nicer than paper tags.

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!

Eric and I wish we could join all of you in QZ.  Just a head's up ... I believe UTT Transplant and possibly Larry N will be there.  They were awesome contributors to the rally in Lanesboro, MN last fall.  Larry on the guitar and Pam (UTT Transplant) has an incredible voice.  Enjoy!  Again wish we could join you.

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).

If you haven't got yours, Forum FLAGS will be on sale at the pot luck on the 27th.

Or you can order one HERE

Wendy, the problem is that Alaskansnowbirds is actually correct since we never could find our name tags, so the rest of you can wear yours while many are trying to find out "where" in the RV they put them.   ;)

Phil and Wendy Allen here.  We are arriving on the 17th.  We'd love to meet everyone at the happy hour get together(s).  We are staying in a park as this is our 1st time here, have never boondocked before, so a lot to learn.  But can't wait to see you all! Yipee!

There should be a 50 amp service pole by the big cactus,  at least the last time you were there it was. Lol!

Thanks. We don’t want to be late to the party, but this spot we’ve been at in KOFA for almost a week is sooo beautiful we hate to leave.

Likely see you all tomorrow.

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.

Brewers arrived Friday at 1:30.  Said hello to those  I saw.  The fire ring will need to be relocated so plan on moving  rocks as your weight bearing exercise of the day. 
Nice and warm so far.  A bit breezy.  Going to go look for my name tag!

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.

Update

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.
