Maybe you could check the gully and see if the washtubs are there. Larry stashed them before he left.

Wendy, "Checking the Gully for washtubs" is now on my ToDo list  :) :)

Robert:

Stay in touch.  BTW I upgraded my Moto Q for a Blackberry Storm.  It is by far the best cell phone I have ever owned. 

So send me an email if you arrive in QZ b4 New Years Eve.  I'll respone either via the Storm or the laptop.  Most likely the Storm.  It makes a great spam filter before I download email on to my laptop.

Please add Dave and Sue Hills, (AZ); Dan and Kathleen Tyryfter (AZ) and Stephen and Joan Rosenbaum (AZ) to the roster.  Dave and Sue were at Quartzsite last year but it's a first for the other two couples.  They are looking forward to it!!  Stephen and Joan have a teardrop and are newbies at camping.  The Hills and Tyryfter's probably won't arrive until Jan 22.  We'll be there 1/18.

As I posted in The Shade Tree, I'll miss this year in Quartzsite. So sorry to miss the opportunity to renew friendships with you all. This time was always the very highlight of my year so I will be thinking of you and expecting you to walk and shop even harder for my sake!!

I just had back surgery and will be semi-immobile for 6 more weeks so can't handle my trailer. I'll be thinking of you and wishing for a warm and sunny week and maybe I'll hear a whistle once in a while and know that all is well out there.

Sorry you won't be there Lucy. We'll all try our best to shop enough to make up for you not being there but that's a big shopping bag to fill.

My 1st QZ Rallye, Joe & Cricket ferried me from Sky Harbor. La Casa de Amistad stayed in Santa Fe.

Jim & Pat Godward bunked me on their couch, for which I was very thankful.

This year I'm driving myself . . . and have been offered the same bunk!   ;D

Lucy,

That's an easy fix. Just have George hook it up. Then you can drive it to Quartzsite and there will be more help than you need to take care of it there.  ;D  ;D

Hello Bill and Jane!!

Nice to read that you will be with us this year at QZ.  :)

If you have any questions, let us know. If you are full timers you probably know all about boondock camping, but if not, be sure to read the info on my sign up web page. The directions there should get you to the site -- but if you'd like, PM me for a phone number to call so someone can meet you at the Ranger Station.

Maybe you could check the gully and see if the washtubs are there. Larry stashed them before he left.

I'm in Quartzsite overnight on my way down to Yuma.  Bad news - the washtubs are nowhere to be found.   We had some pretty good rain after I arrived last night and there was substantial rainfall before that as I was going through Parker.  Based on the debris dams it looks like there was 3-4 ft. of water through the gully.

Of course, they could be downstream.   I only looked in the area around our campsite.

Bummer. Mike talked to Larry a couple of days ago and he said he put them in the gully by the bushes behind where he was parked. He's at a campground just south of there, maybe I'll give him a call and see if he can go look where he left them. Of course, it's entirely possible that people go scronge up anything that's left after the crowds are gone and they were picked up months ago.

Guess we'll have to rely on Karl's tub that Ned & Lorna are bringing. And anyone else who see's one they could pick up for cheap.

Or . . . we could all go get a rock or two, and "build" a fire ring.

I like those better anyway.  :)

Or both !

I'll be glad to gather rocks when we get there for your fire ring. Or maybe we'll get lucky and your fire ring will still be there ?

Bob, I wont be there again this year but one year you will find me there, count on it LOL

BTW, I was just playing with Google Earth and entered the GPS coordinates you have given.

Our Quartzsite campsite is on the Bureau of Land Management Long Term Visitor's Area at Tyson's Wash, La Posa West section #541.  The GPS coordinates are N33.38.054 and W114.13.591.

And attached is the Google Earth file showing what I found at those coordinates. How far out was it? It really doesn't look like the same place at all...  ahhh, rats, it wont let me post a KMZ file.

Oh well, here is a screen grab of the marker point.

I hope you do make it, sooner than "one year", Ian . . .  :)

Yep -- the screen grab of the coordinantes you display is a bit West the rally site -- whereas our campsite is about 1/4 mile East of the Old Yuma Road that you see running N/S East of the Wash.

Here are the cursor coordinantes that I get in Google Earth at about the center of our rally site:
33 38' 04.17" N
114 13' 35.83"W

Does that look any better??

There's a link in our photo albums (click Photos above) to forum rally locations, including QZ. It's been there some time, and was originally suggested by staffer Gary (RV Roamer) so folks could "see" where the rallies were held, in addition to "seeing" what went on at rallies. Direct access to the page is via this link. Click on a pin &/or zoom in for more info.

I previously had some difficulty locating the pin for the QZ rally in the right spot, partly because of an issue with Google maps, so it may be off slightly and I may need to re-visit it.

Hello again, Bob,
Just want to update our Quartzsite arrival date.  We need to move it from the 15th to the 20th.  See you then.  Thanks.  Bill and Jane Berry
Oh, yes, a phone number in case we need it would be great.  What is "PM me" (sorry, kind of new to this!)?

Thanks Lou for checking.  Tucking those barrels into the desert bushes is so much better than my storing them in my garage and having to haul them back and forth.

A clarification, Betty - the stone firerings are there.  The metal washer tubs have either been scavenged or have been washed downstream.

If the washer tubs were there I was going to take them to Yuma for safekeeping until the rally.
