Is there any chance that Jerry and Ardra Fitzgerald might be able to attend the get together at Catalina State Park in Tucson in December?

That's always a good idea when headed to the desert....hot, cold, rain, dry, tornado, anything goes.

Hi Randy,

Thought I replied to your question yesterday but don't see it.  Gremlins!  We've planned for some of January, but haven't gotten to December yet.  We sometimes put the cart before the horse!  ::)

Putting the cart before the horse isn't always a problem---especially if you can get the horse to walk backwards. But can also, sometimes, be a problem to teach an old horse new tricks!

We will be working at Grand Canyon, will try to make it.  I'll need to string together a couple extra days off to make it doable.  We may just drive the car down, but who knows.  We will try!

Bob

Which Thurs or Fri are you talking about? We will be departing the Western Area FMCA rally in Indio, CA on Sunday, the 16th heading straight to QZ. We will be there for 2 Thurs and Fri, leaving on Sun or Mon, the 30th/31st for Death Valley.

We're doing pretty much same as Bernie.
 
Was just reading my last January's journals and menus fell out for The Grubstake and Sweet Darlene's...nothing makes me hungrier than looking at menus from places I like eating.

We are going to pass on Quartzsite this year, but I know all of you will have a great time.  Hope to make it next year when we have more miles/experience under out belts.

QUARTZSITE 2011 Update!!!!

It's about 2 months now until our 2011 Quartzsite Rally -- and already we have 23 signups. That would be the number of rigs in total - so with an average 2 to a rig we will already have over 40 RVForum Members around the campfire. Great !!!

Am getting a bit anxious myself, as I do every year as the colder storms begin hitting the CA coast -- from Alaska. Last night it was down in the 40's here in the Central Valley. Not Good.  >:( :(  So I can imagine how you folk must be feeling where snow actually falls on you RV. The solution, of course, is to head South!!

My brother lives in San Jose, CA. He has 4 children (I have none -- that I know of  ;)) and those 4 have 10 children - two of which are now married. So seating at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners is upwards of 25 now. Being with such a wonderful family during the holidays is the only reason I continue to spend cold nights here. On the 26th of December, however, I will not need a GPS to get this rig to Arizona.

As the time gets closer, it would be nice if you could post your estimated arrival date. I will then post to the sign up list. We begin to check folk off when they arrive -- and become a bit worried when someone doesn't arrive. Plus one of the fun things for those around the AM coffee is to check out the list to see, "Who's Arriving Today??".


CHECK HERE TO SEE OUR LIST SO FAR PLUS INFO ON THE RALLY . . .  :) :)

We hope you can join us. Just post to this thread when your plans include the Quartzsite 2011 rally.

FMCA Rally is Jan 12-16. It's about 125 miles from Indio to Quartzsite and we don't move very fast so I'm thinking we'll get there on the 21st.

I'm not sure where all Wendy and Mike will be stopping in between, but we'll probably drive straight from Indio to QZ on the 16th, tho we may leave the coach and run home for a day or two.

Probably boondock just outside Joshua Tree Nat'l Park and do some geocaching and visit the Patton Museum. But plans are written in Jello so there's no telling what we'll actually end up doing :)

Hi Bob -

I signed up a little ways up the thread, but I don't see my name on the list.  Should I take the hint?   ;D

I'll be arriving after the close of the Blythe Bluegrass Festival on Jan 16th.

I've been trying to get out of WA for the past couple of weeks, but there's been a lot of details to work out.  Hopefully I can start south tomorrow and make it over the Siskiyous before Thursday.

DW has finally agreed we can attend, so it appears (for now) that we'll arrive on 25 Jan. and depart on 30 Jan.

Larry & Mary Ann Nussbaumer

Since we have no toad (yet), we'll likely want to rent a car. From what I've found so far, it appears that either Phoenix or Yuma are the best places to rent a car. Since we'll be coming through Phoenix, we'll probably opt for that, but if someone knows a better place I'd appreciate it. Also, since we know nothing about the Sky Harbor airport area, what problems might a 2010 Bounder (12' 10" high) encounter trying to get to a place we can pick up a rental car (or is there a non-airport place)? Some (many?) major airports have certain areas that are height-limited, so any information would be very helpful.

Thanks,

Russ, no need for a car at Quartzsite.  There are always people going to town so you can get a ride easily.

As Ned said, unlikely you'll need a car, but if you do, don't go to Sky Harbor. You will probably be able to negotiate the car rental area which is offsite but the taxes and fees are higher at the airport. There are locations in Goodyear (25 miles west of the airport) where you can rent one for less or maybe even in Blythe, CA about 20 miles from QZ.

Thanks for the info, folks. I guess we'll try it with no toad and see how it works out. We're just not used to depending on others for transportation, but since you say there'll be plenty, we'll give that a shot.

Thanks again,
