I like pictures. Keep them coming please. Names would be fun if possible.

^X2^

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.  >:(

^X2^ again.

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 had 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!

Great pictures Betty, thank you so much for sharing.

I'm still stuck way back on the comment about Henry looking at his next coach, a 40' Phaeton. :o

Love following along with the pictures wishing we were there.

January 24, 2018

Another Beautiful day in the desert. High today was  73 with a low of 30 last night.  A few walked this morning at 10.  ( to empty our trash) Much activity  in the group. Barb and Frank arrived. Bill left, Larry moved, Jim test drove a rig, lots of vehicles  came and went  but I can't keep track of everyone. My cousin Jim and  friend Claire came to visit. Mary Ann is leaving in  am due to a death in family. Hugs to them.

I went to Big tent at  3pm  and walked over to  Tyson  shopping area. Got an little orange skillet to fry one egg. Got  an ice cream scooper.  Got some  garlic oil for salad dressing or a dip.  Got a bunch of  dented cans at the food store for only $3. 

Returned and Happy hour was in full force!  Happy people visiting  and snacking! Took a photo of sunset sky which was  beautiful.  Photo was not worthy of a post! 

Off  road ride in  am will  leave at  9 am. Channel 33 on CB, bring lunch, chairs and a smile!

Best news of  day was that  Wendy will be here tomorrow!

Maria and I were out enjoying the Cibola National Wildlife Refuge and came across these Condors.  The Refuge is about an hour from here so it's an afternoon.

Well Gary I hate to be the bearer of bad news but there are two problems with your Condors photo. Number one is there are no Condors south of Flagstaff. Number two, that is a Turkey Vulture, not a California Condor. The dead giveaway is the hole through the head via the nostrils. They are both big dark birds with red heads and they love to eat dead things, but they are definitely different species.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Don't feel bad Gary, it happens a lot especially at the Grand Canyon where there are a lot of both species.

Sorry I missed reporting on yesterday. I was  busy.  Off road  run to Dripping Springs involves getting up early to fix  lunch so  I was tired in evening. 

We welcomed Wendy, Mike and Gordon to  the fold yesterday!  Happily she is now in charge and reviewed Name tag rules. We  had a ball on the Jeep trails. Bruised another ball and lost one  ball.  (Come on now...I'm talking about a hitch and a  tennis toy.


Labeled photos .  Terry is in here a couple of times as he usually refuses to be in photos.
