VMAX,

Just so you know, Lucy's kidding.  There's nothing x-treme about four wheeling with the RV Forum.  None of us wants to hurt our cars, especially those who full time and depend on them.  In the past we had one person ("Doc") who did that kind of stuff, but his vehicle was prepared for it with big tires, lockers, etc. etc.  Your Jeep will be just fine.  We have an Acura MDX these days and it's lower than your Jeep so we have to be extra careful, especially because there's no skid plate.

No, it's not.  Lucy has just been funnin' with you.  :)

Whoever is the leader for that day chooses the trail for that day - and that route is graded as to difficulty. That way, whoever participates knows exactly what they will be in for.  With few exceptions, members use their toad vehicle for the off road of that day -- and some have toads newer and more expensive than any Jeep you might find in the line up.

OTOH, there are groups in QZ at the same time that the only thing original that hasn't been modified for off roading is the Jeep Logo on their vehicle - and what they do off road, is more like what Lucy describes.

All daily events (such as off roading) are announced at our evening happy hour getogethers -- that we have been inviting you to attend for the past several years now. That invite is, or course, still open . . .

ARRIVAL POSTINGS

Please post here when you arrive -- or if you note that someone else has arrived. I will then note that by your name (ARRIVED) on the signup list HERE. That way others can see who has arrived.

I should be arriving later in the week (Thursday or Friday). Bernie, sorry I am not there to look after your rig but have unfortunately had a several week bout with a stomach virus -- so sorry I have not been there early as usual to greet you all.

As noted in my previous post, please try to set aside our fire ring area from last year if at all possible.

Dave and Marilyn from St. Catharines, Ontario our now at the Rally site in Quartzsite and another couple who are now my enemy have also arrived.
 
When I realized they had been here before, I asked them where the sun would come up. The male person answered " in the East ". I will never speak to either of them again !  ;)
 
They are Paul and Ann and I think they are from Iowa, but I ain't gonna ask them.  ::)

Thank you for posting -- sorry I was not there to greet you so please accept this virtual greeting. Have updated the sign-up list to show your arrivals.

As to sunrise location. When I describe the site I think roughly in terms of the 10 freeway begin East/West -- and roughly parallel to the center line of our rally site. It is not exactly so, but close enough to avoid asking members to park South so many degrees West and so forth.

So -- if parking in the South direction, you will be looking at the sun setting about 30 or so degrees to the right. For example, Bernie parks that way and sees the evening sun in his front window. He commented on that last night. OTOH, the sun this time of year is low in the Soutern sky so on hotter days, that can be a problem.

I usually park facing North - so get the morning sun off to the right of my Class A front window.

BTW, the wind will usually come from the NW. That is another reason I like facing North as that puts the wind on the opposite side of my rig than than my front door. Some like to park North or South based on their position from the center point of the rally so they can see what's goin' on and that way won't miss something good.

Have noticed about half park one way and half the other -- and continue to park the same way each year. So it's a matter of trade-offs either way. Also, we have a lot of space so you can move if need be.

Thanx Bob
 
I was only funnin about Paul. They are quite nice. We also met Bob and Laura, the latest members to arrive. We are on our way to lunch in Quartzsite with them. I think they are from the Santa Barbara area.
 
I think we are going to enjoy this.

Well in spite of my best efforts Linda and I will not be able to attend this year.  I managed to fall in my own kitchen and break my kneecap.  My own fault. 
Linda isn't happy about the injury but not unhappy about Quartzite.

The dates for our annual RV Forum Quartzsite rally will be January 22-30, 2011.

Post a note on this thread to let us know you plan to attend with names and your home state.

 
Linda and I will not be able to attend the annual RV Forum Quartzsite rally this year. I return "home" from a 12 day stay at the hospital a few days ago and need to get some strength back before any future trips. Please remove our names from the sign up list. We hope to see everyone next year.
 
This has not started out as a very good year. First, we missed the Catalina SP Rally because Linda was not feeling well and then I developed a small bowel obstruction on News Years Day and went to the hospital on January 3rd. I came very close to the surgeonís knife but the obstruction resolved itself after a little over a week. I can not believe how 12 days in the hospital has wiped me out.

After having attended the forum Quartzsite rally for many, many years, I now find that I only recognize 17 of the 42 rigs in attendance.
 
I think that's a wonderful indication of the forum embracing all new members and continuing the fun and adventures.   Here's wishing you all a happy framily get-together!  I can hardly wait to hear what Betty has up her sleeve for you this year.  Please post lots of pictures!

We planned on arriving today but with the high wind warning (up to 70 mph gusts), we decided to just stay put at Salton Sea (light breezes) and drive to Qtz tomorrow.
 
We have all the stuff we need for name badges and with the list of attendees, it looks like we'll need those name badges ! See Mike at Happy Hour and we'll get them printed out for those in need because:
Rule #1 is ------- Wear Your Name Badge !
and Rule #2 is ------- Wear Your Stinking Name Badge !
 
See ya'all tomorrow.
