There's an Escapees geocaching rally up on Plomosa Road the week after the RV Forum rally. Should be lots of fun.

I have a possible problem that might prevent us from coming to the Rally.  Have an appointment on Jan 10 to look at my left eye.  Have a cataract and have to have something done about it before I renew my driver license.  7 years ago had a cataract removed via traditional surgery.  This time I am considering lasic surgery and from what I hear the recovery time is much faster.  So keep us on the arrival list.  Since my appointment is more than a week before the start date of the rally, I can let you know about a weekbefore if we are a go or not.

Thanks

I don't recall ever seeing that sign.  Does anyone know who has it now?  It would be great to put it on the Section 541 road!

I just scrounged thru this thread to find the link to who's coming to Qtz.

Thanks, Wendy. Too bad you had to do that . . .  :(

When scrounging around, did you happen to again read my suggestions on how set the link as a favorite or desktop icon -- beginning with my initial post?

NOTE: If you want to add that link to your Favorites Bar, just select "Add to Favorites bar" from your Favorites Menu or under the Favorites Bar icon. You can then check the list status anytime while in your browser (see attached). As we get closer to the rally dates, I will sometimes be doing adds, changes, and/or deletes several times a day - so this will always give you the latest list as I know it to be.

NOTE: To go directly to the attendee list, you may want to go to then add THIS address to your favorite bookmarks. To make the URL a desktop shortcut, copy it to your clip board, do a right click on the desktop, select "shortcut" (or however your version reads), then follow the wizard instructions. See attached.


Have attached another JPG of my desktop computer. No matter where you are in your browser a "single click" will display the latest list. If you set the link as a desktop icon you don't have to be in your browser. I have made it very easy to get to the list w/no scrounging around necessary -- far better than posting the list of about 40 folk here in this thread as it changes now almost on a daily basis, over and over and over and over again . . .  :)

Thanks Bob. I figured I wasn't looking at the website often enough to add it to my favorites, especially way back when the thread started :) . And thought perhaps there were others who also hadn't added it their favorites. Figured it couldn't hurt to get the link in a more recent post. And I suspect that your last post will help those of us who didn't mark the list site as a favorite. Thanks.

Gary, The weather is delightful but I can't stand the traffic ! And didn't produce use to be cheaper in California than a lot of other places?

Wendy, everything is cheaper but you need to know where to look.  If you come across a Trader Joe's, check them out.  You'll find a limited selection of high quality products at reasonable prices.   Also, Vallarta markets have great prices with a good selection.  Enjoy your stay in CA.

Trader Joe's I know - cheap wine and those awesome peppermint Oreo-type cookies, YUM. Will see if there's a Vallerta's anywhere around here.
 
BTW, forget produce prices, each and every sunset since we got here has been spectacular.

Thanks  Jim. We're making a run to Whittier this week for lunch at Rubi's and that might work on the way home. If not, there's a couple of Trader Joe's close by.

Another real good store for fancy food is A.J's in AZ. It's the upscale Basha's. Fresh & Easy is also good. They might be elsewhere too. Calif. probably has double the fancy places that we have in AZ. Seems most of our food comes from there.

We arrived at QZ yesterday, staying in the short term visitor area SE of X19. Marlene is putting up a display for her dog cards with the Too Crazy Ladies. The town is really empty so far, not too many people have come yet, but it is early.

Thursday we head up to Indio and will be there thru the FMCA rally and then back to QZ for the rally.

Ellen and Michael Schwarz are going to have to cancel. We put our house on the market on Monday, fully expecting it to take months to sell. We got an offer yesterday, countered last night which was accepted today. We will have to stay in the house until the closing in the middle of February. I was looking forward to it. Maybe next year.

Well, it's too bad we won't get to meet you - but hot dog!  It's wonderful that you sold your home so quickly in this market.  Now you have your work cut out for you!  Glad for you that it sold so fast.

Arrived in Qz yesterday afternoon (Tues/10th) and am parked in the Scaddan Wash 14 day area for now. Will move to the rally site in a week or so as other members begin to arrive. Nice drive down from NCal - not too much fog in the valley or wind along I40 between Barstow and Needles.

Shows are up and running along Keuhn and Main Event area on main street. Hard to tell whether the crowds are down as I can't recall being here this early before. However, there was no wait at the Pit Stop whereas on previous visits they were fairly backed up.

The ATTENDEE LIST is up to date from what I read here and what has been PM'ed to me - with 38 signed up so far and including those that have dropped off or been added in the past few days. Please let me know if you find any discrepancies. If you weren't sure of your arrival date when you posted and do know now, please let me know. That date is not critical, but we do worry about you if your name is on the list and we don't see your rig coming down the long dusty road to the site.

BTW, if coming down CA95 between Needles and Blythe (or Vidal Junction, then Parker), I ran into quite a delay due to resurfacing of the roadway. There was an 11 mile, one lane at a time with the flag persons 11 miles apart, delay over the summit of the mini-mountain just South of Needles. If may be completed by the time you travel, but OTOH it may not so checking ahead would be wise.

After spending these days last year with MRI's, CT scan's and an operation -- it is "very" nice being back in the AZ desert . . .  :)

Looking forward to your arrivals!!

Hi Bob -

I'll be leaving the Western Railway Museum in Fairfield CA tomorrow - should be in the Quartzsite area the first part of next week.  I'm planning to attend the Bluegrass Festival next weekend so I don't know if I'll get a LTVA pass or just stay in the 14 day area until the festival starts.
