My wife and I will be visiting our son, his wife and new granddaughter in Twentynine Palms for the extended weekend. My son and I are tentatively planning a day visit to Quartzite on Monday, Jan 20. I am hoping we can sort of blow in and out for a quick hello and meet some forum members. 

He is also looking for some tow bar parts for his recently purchased 2004 Subatu Outback toad - possibly at the RV Show/tent. It came with some parts but not all. We will be looking to understand how the lights and braking worked. All he has now is a cut off wire set behind the grill.

The real purpose is to meet some of the folks I see on this forum and get a taste of the Quartzite experience for future planning.

Looks as if we'll be departing shortly, spending the night in Raton, so likely we'll arrive sometime on Friday, given that the weather dictates we take I-25 to I-10 then west, rather than going through Flagstaff.

See ya'll then.

It actually looks like it may have stopped raining. The sky is much lighter than it was before. I would guess a lovely desert bloom will begin in a few days. We probably had an inch or more of rain! Lots of washes were running, and some of the streets in town were flooded.

I think most of the guys would be more than willing to help. Lots of us have solar set ups installed.

We are staying in Mesa at an RV Park so won’t be camping with the group as we had planned. We do plan to drive out sometime during the week next week to visit the big “to-do” and will try to find you all around happy hour. We also plan to try to make the pot-luck dinner on the 26th. Look forward to meeting those of you we have not had a chance to yet.

There are only 4 Forum flags left. They will be available at the pot luck on the 26th. $20 each.

If you won't be at Quartzsite and want a flag, you can order it here. Scroll down to the bottom of the page of logo ware for the flags.

There are only 4 so whoever orders them first will get them.

Thanks for the info and offers. I can do it myself too, but I have just bought a 2019 Roadtrek Simplicity SRT which did not have prewiring for Solar. I am having La Mesa prewire to roof and then doing my own Solar panel install. No warranty issues with that.

But I only have one (1) AGM battery and want to add another and desiring to find an installer who might be factory authorized, to avoid warranty issues. I need two batteries bad for boon docking. The battery system is very complex and mounted underneath.

I still have a 2012 Winnebago (Sprinter) View G Profile which I will sell in the next month or two. I did my own 150 watt Solar install on it with no problems.

I could only get down to Quartzsite if there was an installer who could do it. By the way we live in Mesa if anyone comes this way.

Best wishes to all.

Funny, that.  DW and I were out playing in Palm Canyon yesterday and stopped by the rally site on the way back into town to ask the same question.  Best answer I got was "later in the week".

Bad news for us. On our way back to our site in Mesa, the engine tripped the MIL and check engine light. It turns out that I won't be able to drive the motor home until it's repaired. The part won't be here until next week, so it looks like we're not going to be able to make it again this year.

See you next year, hopefully.

Drive the toad out for the pot luck. That way you won't miss it entirely.

The first picture is from sunset last night, but taken a few seconds after the red sky faded. The second was this morning. There is a reason I like it here!

Today was cold and windy. From our windows we saw a few hardy souls in the gathering place, but we stayed warm inside. We will wait until tomorrow to come out of hibernation.

Brewers will be joining the off road trip in morning!

PS With Terry's recent eye surgery (cataract and lens implant)  he will NOT be leading  the traditional Ridge Run trip.  Sorry to  disappoint anyone  but vision is  important. Hope weather  improves to allow  conversations over the  Happy hour time!

Brewers arrived mid day.  Very windy day and  only 53 degrees. 

 This RVForum Rally  began for us in 1995 and we've only missed the two years when we traveled to  Mexico. So please do the math to see how many years we  have  been coming to QUARTZSITE!

Usually we arrive earlier in the week but Terry had cataract surgery last week  so let me share with  you the Q events ( so far ) from my perspective in the next post!

Brewers easily found  the RVForum site today even though our normal arrival was delayed by a couple of days due to Terry's recent cataract surgery.

It was WINDY and only 55  as a high!  Sorta cold  for  these old arthritic folks!  With  Government Shutdown in place, there were no volunteers at the Kiosk so we did not pay the  fee to enter  the BLM 2 week area.

I drove our Jeep   into  the RVforum  group area as Terry followed  in mh.  I drove  through the "camp"  and noted the many attendees who had arrived way before us! Most vehicles were with their rigs so I knew people were  home  but not out and about. Smart people avoid inclement weather!

We  got parked and  sat in our RV all day waiting for the wind to stop and for  it to warm up!  I did  see Bill and Pam Nash drive in with a report of crowds in big tent! Saw Mike and Wendy leave and come back. Don't know where they went.  Visited with Henry and Margaret  (our next door neighbors) They reported  BIG crowds at tent  and even came home for lunch.  Texted with Barb and Frank about off road trail tomorrow. Saw John drive in, saw Larry and Mary Ann  leave in Jeep. Saw Bill W come to visit Sarge in his rig. 

Answered a call from Marty and Diane for  directions to our site  but I could see them on the road and Diane  could see me waving my arms. So they  had it right! They parked  next to us.  When Marty and Diane arrived and were  settled ("Sarge" on RVForum) I begged for  a tour of their now 1.5 year old Allegro Bus.  Ahemmmmmm if you are gonna full time this is the way to go!  Diane graciously gave me tips on an induction cook top and on an Insta pot which I see in my future!

 Visited with Henry and Margaret on their life events of late!     Hopefully weather will allow us to  gather together tomorrow ( after the Jeep run) so we can catch up !  Jeff and Sue  ventured the " cold" to  give us a visit.  Happy to hear of the  successful/complicated  back surgery  Sue endured.Sue and I enjoyed a glass of wine!

Thank you if you have read this far.... I'm now off to put drops in Terry's eyes!
