Does anyone have any information on the coach that burned down off of Plomosa tonight? We caught it from about 500 yards out and it had peaked before QFD arrived :(

Terry reports his Davis Weather machine indicates   low temp last night in Quartzsite of 47.  At 9 am it is 52 with wind gusts of 18 so it is a bit breezy today . Sustained wind speeed is  8.7 .  Coffee is hot and  Don is manning that station awaiting the gathering of walkers who will leave at 10 am.  Life is good.

     Betty:   Talk up the Wildflower Scramble in April.  Like to have a few more coaches.  I also hope, you will be willing to put together a game of two for the group.

Wish we were there, but will be headed for Death Valley behing the QZ group.  We expect to be there late February into March.

I do hope you numbered the rocks so they were replaced in the correct positions.

Vertical location letters, horizontal location numbers, and color coding for proper placement :)

A hearty group walked in the desert  wind today at 10 am.  Some took a short cut and a nap and or medication following the walk.

Many of us  called the "Breeders Cup" created the  4 horses that will run in the Desert Derby on Thursday.  The horses have fine lineage and creative components. I can't tell you how many laughs we had in creating our fine thoroughbreds.
 
We held the  12 Days of Quartzsite Skit dress rehearsal  tonight following Happy hour.  What a cast I have assembled  (er uh who " volunteered")  I sure hope we have  vidoes and or photos to record the talent that will be showcased on Tuesday.

We had a few more  new arrivals today. And some Brave souls volunteered to be in the show! 
Wendy  reviewed the rules for the group and the Sheriff ( Jim Johnson) collected fines ( .25)  of the ones not wearing name tags.  If it was your first night you were excused from this rule. Jerry F has paid up way  in advance so if you get called on this just tell the sheriff to put it on Jerry's account.

Introductions were made at Happy hour and Terry  gave a tiribute to Fred and Daisy Thomas who are considered the  " Grand founding parents of RVForum rallies.  Sigh,,,,recall accoustic couplers.

A spontaneous activity was schedued.  It is a  4 wheel drive ride  up on the Ridge on Monday 1/24/11 at 9:30 am.  Bring your lunch and chairs.  It will require 4 wheel drive with street legal vehicles.

This is tomorrow Monday 1/24  so be  glad you follow our posts.

Breeders Cup? Really? Nobody in this group is ever again going to do any breeding---especially those things that are supposed to be horses. I understand why you had so many good laughs during their construction. I'm truly looking forward to the race itself and would like to get the Vegas line on "The Happy Hooker" and "Bling Bling". Could they all possibly finish last?????

Ken, pretty cool, ain't it.  One thing about work camping, if you do a good job and they like you, they want to keep you happy.  They also know you have an ignition key and a map. 

We are going to miss seeing you guys.

I surely hope that Betty is watching Randy's posts with ernest ! Looks to me like a very qualified candidate for `Race Announcer' . Sometimes me thinks he protests too much !

Dear Jim,

Yes indeedy, I am watching all comments carefully.  Don't forget fellow RVForum participants I still need riders and trainers.  4 each.  See me if you are privately wishing you will be asked to be in the  Derby instead of on the outskirts.

All,

Russ is resting at comfortably at the hospital (they suggested he stay overnight).  He has his computer so he can answer messages.

Randy opened his mouth one time too many, suggesting that he would like to ride The Happy Hooker so guess who is now one of the jockies? Careful what you say around here !

After Terry said he was taking Russ back, those of us who were going to join Terry on his favorite 4X4 ride, the Ridge, still wanted to go for a ride but decided to keep the Ridge ride open for Terry later this week. Instead we went north and east to the Southern Cross mine, stopping at the WAF memorial and the Bouse Fisherman Intaglio. A nice off road ride into the mountains and a stop for lunch on the old mine building concrete foundation was followed by a hike up to and into the mine. Returning to Plomosa Road some of us continued on to the thriving ??? town of Bouse which has a lovely assay building converted to a visitor center. Unfortunately, it always is closed when I get there.

Sorry I can't post any pictures, I didn't have a camera with, but some of the others did and hopefully they'll post some pictures.

The fire that burned the motorhome on Plomosa Rd was a friend's RV. She is with the WIN's. Her name is Paula. She had filled with propane at the Pit Stop early in the day. The man who filled it had trouble with the fitting. Used some tool to get it too work. Back at Plomosa she was eating dinner in a friend's rig when her's had a explosion. She was only able to save her computer. Lost her purse and all it's contents, and everything else. The WIN's took up a collection to help her.

If anyone has any questions about their camera I am in the old Allegro motorhome. Or if you are interested in going out shooting together just come on down.
