Richard Sharp has contributed a great aerial shot of the RVForum rally site at QZ for inclusion on the web page I have posted. It is the last picture on the page at the end of the Directions segment.

Check it out . . .

Thank you Richard. BTW, Richard and Linda will be attending.

Bob, Your doing a great job there. Thanks,  Should make it easier for the new folks to find us with your excellent directions.  Thanks to Richard Sharp for sending in the aerial shot.
Others that are attending QZ that aren't listed are Peter Jason (NV), Frank & Barb Weimert (MI), and John from Detroit (MI).  Also think Brewers are going to be there this year. I hope George & Pam will be there too.

Thanks, Ron -- I was about to write back that Terry and Betty were already on the list, but decided to check again. The age thing again.  :(  Actually, John and Judy Davis from Detroit are already on the list.

I knew John & Judy were already on the list guess the CRS thing is really bad this time of year.  I should have mentioned Al & Vel Woods will be there so please add them to the list.

Good Morning . . .

Yes, your name is added. Glad to read that you will be returning to QZ this spring. Current plans are to be in San Jose -- so will contact you if possible. Sometimes my stay there is short with tons of family to visit.

Bernie has brought info on the 2005/2006 LTVA rate structure to my attention. I have modified the FEE: line on the web page to read:

Fees: The fee for one week this year is $25.00 payable at the ranger station. You can purchase additional weeks. The fee for the entire season is $125 (September 15th thru April 15th). Golden Eagle, Golden Age, and Golden Access Passport discounts DO NOT apply to LTVA (Long Term Visitor Areas) fees.

I have the 20 amp site, but it includes phone and cable ;D ;D

Hi Bernie,
I guess that leaves me with the "cheepo" 20 amp site, It only has water and sewer plus the 20 amp. :-[ :-[

Ron:

Thanks for getting us signed up during my Internet outage.  BTW I will be trying again tomorrow to get back on line via satallite.

Phil... we now have a printer on board so we should still have first dibs on the 50 amp site.  Besides the printer we will also be bringing our DW Internet sat with a wireless router to assist those needing Internet access.   :D

Bob, great web site you have there.  When you get time, would you please change the spelling of our last name from Sheppard to Shepherd.  Also can you show us from both Montana and Maryland since this year we lived in both states as official domicile.  Thanks!

The cost was a little more but my developer included the 50amp as well as phone, electric, TV connection, sewer connection, and water hookup.  Suppose to be a light on top the post but he has been a little slow getting that done.  Maybe this year. ;D ;D  Sounds like there will be at least three full hookup sites this year but still only one 50 amp.   ;D

...  and now that I am the most senior newbie (whatever that means lol) and have my printer and have the sat dish working, I will cash in my certificate for the 50 amp this year.

Got the dish running in 5 minutes today, after a half hour of trying to conect the OPI meter to the transmitter rather than the LNB and a call to Ron.   :o

Sign up Bettie & Jim Harrison from Maryland. We can only be there Jan 28 & 29 since we can't arrive in Tucson before the 27th. Looking forward to meeting everybody.

One question, did I convert these coordinates correctly:

N33.38.054 = 33.634833
W114.13.591 = -114.233056

My GPS doesn't like "seconds."

Smoky,

We live in Annapolis. We will be leaving here Jan 1 for El Paso where we will join a Copper Canyon caravan Jan 12, arriving back in Tucson Jan 27. I say, "back in Tucson" because we are dropping our toad off there before joining the caravan in El Paso. I can't take my toad to Mexico.

Since we will be so close to Quartzsite I thought we had to see it. I originally thought I would try to get into Rice Ranch which seemed would be walking distance to the RV show. But after reading this thread I decided to hook up with this fun group if you will have us.

After Quartzsite we are off to San Diego. I think we will drop by "The Slabs" to further increase my RV education. :D

I have only owned this monster for four months. Never even had a tent before. ::)

Hi James,

Have a blast on the  train.  I can't wait to hear your stories. You will enjoy the Quartzsite rally and we can swap train stories and pictures.  I actually would pass on the slabs.

Some news: (Personal update)

As I mentioned earlier... I will be arriving at QZ a bit early (at least a day or two) and then I, personally, have to jet... To Detroit, leaving wife and kitties behind.

I found there is bus service between QZ and Pheonix... So I got me a ride to Pheonix, and from there to DTW via jet (I was not kidding when I said jet) and from DTW to my wife's car via tow-truck or foot-mobile if all else fails (less than a mile to a friend's driveway) and then home (20 miles) church, convention, church, convention, home, and back to said drive/airport/phonix/qz about mid rally

And then there is a BBQ in Tuson I may go to post-rally

And a few other places in that part of the country to visit... I need to have dinner at the college station texas Red Lobster one of these days,,, Might as well be this winter.
