Totally understand Gary. We'll see you guys when you get there. Last year it rained all the way from San Diego to KOFA and we set up camp in the rain. The next day, however (and for the rest of the week) it was beautiful. The area doesn't get much rain, so as long as the wind isn't howling, it's always a good time.

Tom, very sorry to hear about your SIL. Safe travels as you go to GA and then on to AZ. We’ll miss seeing you and Theresa at Kofa.

We currently have reservations at Stovepipe Wells in Death Valley during your KOFA expedition, but we are reconsidering that due to the Government shutdown. I am worried that I will be crushed if that beautiful area is trashed! If we don’t go DVNP, we will meet you at KOFA. Is there cell service? If not, I need to make sure I have lots of books and maybe some movies downloaded beforehand.

Hey, when we leave KOFA, where is a good place to dump tanks and fill with water?

Sarge are you going to the LTVA with the Forum group? If the LTVA has a dump and water that is part of your fee. It is on the east side of  95while the forum group is on the west side of 95. You head in there first, pay your fee, dump your tanks, add water and then head back across the road to the Forum group location.


If you not going to the LTVA area, then .9 of mile north of Kuehn St is the Pit Stop on the east side of 95.

It looks like we will be pulling in on Monday afternoon. Then pulling out Wednesday morning to head for the FMCA rally in Indio.

Thanks to all for your support. Brenda passed quietly early Friday morning. Service is the 13th so we will be hanging around Georgia until then.

Still hope to make it to Q but now that we are taking a more southern route we have friends to visit along the way.

We got in yesterday.   Sarge, I think the site is more like a mile and a quarter.  You'll see Kev's Tour with the solar up.   Same spot at last year.

FYI, there are several RVs at KOFA, and no one has come by to chase any of them out. Some were here before we arrived yesterday, so my guess is they're not going to make anyone leave (probably because this is a no-fee area.) We are camped in the same spot as last year, about a mile east of 95 on Kings Rd. A few Forum members are here. Hope to see others soon.

FYI... A Ranger has driven by twice and just waived at us, so I'm pretty sure they're not going to be asking us to leave.

Yep, easy in just like last year. Nice weather when we arrived, in the mid 60's. Just in time for a beautiful sunset.

We'll be out mid-morning.  Took the Jeep on a trip to Oatman and back today.  Got back a few minutes ago, and I'm in the recliner and done for the day.
Used to be I'd hop on the Harley and take a 250 mile ride and still be able to party into the wee hours.  Not sure what happened there.  ;)

For those who aren’t able to get to southern Arizona, I thought I would post some pictures from Kofa. The saguaro cactus are the classic Sonoran desert cactus. The occatillo is budding out after the rain on Saturday, and the mountains are lovely.
