I've been grooming Charlie for nearly 3 years.  My problem is that in QZ, I need to be frugal with the water.....thus the need for a groomer.  Plus I don't have a table to groom on.   At home he is either up on our picnic table or the tail gate of my husbands truck.  Either one works great.

I think I'll check for a groomer here in Camp Verde. 

We've signed up for a 4 hour Verde Valley train ride on Saturday along the river.  Tomorrow we head to Sedona for the day.

Bob, remove Estelle as an attendee.

After 2 weeks+ at Lazydays she needed a trip to the house with son Jeff driving along to see family.

We just arrived in QZ this evening.  We will be in the area for at least a week but likely not the entire 10 days of the show.
If you would be interested in a seminar on satellite TV for your rally I could likely arrange that as well if there is enough interest.

Hi Bill,

Good to see you here on the friendliest forum on the net.  Not sure why no one answered your post.  Perhaps you could post a little more of your qualifications and experience with satellite TV.

I read most of your posts on the Escapees forum.

Hi all,
Well after much effort I will be able to attend.  Linda, in spite of weeks of effort, will not.  I have been unable to alter her impression of Quartzite.  I will not arrive until Sunday afternoon on the 22nd.  And I will have to leave on Friday the 27th.  This is the best I was able to do.  Looking forward to seeing everyone.

I'm parked here in Lazydays until at least next Thursday. . . and it may be Friday. It is the best place to be in a the middle of a venders SNAFU.

It is entirely Flow-master-Remco's fault,  not Lazydays.  NEVER buy a vehicle that has to have a drive-shaft disconnect unit. You risk being stuck like I have. Estelle got fed up with this RVing non lifestyle and is back in NM. :(

Dea and Mike’s update;
Good evening everybody.  Dea and I are headed to Quartzsite.  We are spending tonight in Las Cruces New Mexico.  We are changing our plans a little.  We are fortunate to have our 2 Granddaughters with us.  So we plan to head to Yuma first and let the granddaughters spend sometime with their Great Grandpa and Grandma.  We are planning to arrive at Quartzsite some time around Yuesday or Wednesday of next week.

It's a shame what can happen to a company. A number of years ago, the weekend before we were leaving for Moab, I went on a nite off-road ride with a bunch of tricked up Wranglers. I broke the collar on the disconnect (some of the Wranglers did a lot worse). Monday I was at the dealer, they called Remco and said they could put a collar together that afternoon and have it out the next morning. Wednesday it was at the dealer and I was on my way by noon. I don't think that would happen today with Flowmaster.

Bob,

Keep on doing what you're doing!

Tom S.,

Betty is right and interpreted your response as I did. The QZ rally is definitely an RV Forum rally and has been since day one!!! There is no need for any financial support but that doesn't change the validity of the rally.

An earlier post in this thread said people are heading up to Bouse to dump because the Pit Stop raised their prices.

There's a new, modern dump station in Blythe - three lanes wide at the municipal sewage plant about a mile south of town.  Take the 7th Ave exit (the one for Albertson's) and head south under the freeway to the first intersection, then turn east (right) and follow the road until you get to Broadway.  Or go down Hobsonway from Albertson's until you get to Broadway.  When you get to Broadway, go south for about a mile.  The dump station is on the right.

Cost is $7, hours are 6 AM - 2 PM Pacific Time.

They do not have potable water available there - go figure, there's water to flush out your hose but it's labeled Do Not Drink.  But good quality water is still available at the old Lovekin Ave. county park site.  Coming out of the dump station, turn right (south), then take the first road to the right (east) to Lovekin, then go north to the park, about a block south of the freeway.  There are 3 spigots on the grass side of the parking lot.

I only mention this as an alternative if the line at the dump station across the road gets too long.   Take the rig and combine this with a grocery run to the Albertson's.

I did not say it was not an RV Forum rally. What I said is that it is not SPONSORED by the RV Forum. To sponsor something means to give it financial support. The RV Forum provides no financial support so therefore they do not sponsor the event. But it is still an RV Forum event.

Looking less likely we will make it this year.  My catarac surgery is scheduled for this coming Wed (Jan 25).  If things go well I might be able to get out there for a day trip.  Time will be tight though because if we take the day trip we will be meeting our new boss for this summer's workamping in the big tent and buying lapidary equipment for our club back in El Mirage.  will try to swing by,  We love everyone there and miss all.  Been a sad year as we lost both our "children" Reba and Sky.

However we are looking forward to the coming summer with a new employer at the same campgrounds on the Poudre River in Colorado.

Verizon was ok this morning on my iphone but then went to crap when we were in town in the afternoon. Same thing that's happened the last 3 days. Glad we still have our roof mount.

I'd be interested in attending your seminar on satellite TV if you're still willing to give it.  I think there's several others in this group that would also be interested.  Are you planning on joining our group in your RV or just coming for the seminar?  Maybe you could attend one of our happy hours (starting at 4:00 - 4:30 PM daily) and talk about it.

As Wendy mentions, they do General Delivery but the line can be out the door, around the corner, and up the street - especially during the show weeks. I've used it in the fall or later spring when in Qz and it's not bad at all, but never during the show times.

For UPS or Fedex, I use Quiet Times, just East of 95 on Main Street. They charge $1.00 for packages under 50# and $2.50 for packages over 50#. They do not accept anything sent to them that passes through the post office. If such a package "is" sent, it is returned by the post office vs. delivering it to Quiet Times. So I am careful when ordering via Amazon or wherever to make sure it is not sent USPS. Otherwise I find it a great service and use it often when in Qz.

Yes, but it works out much better to send general delivery mail to Ehrenberg or Blythe.  Much shorter lines and you can drive to either of them and back twice in the length of time you'll stand in line at the QZ post office during show week.

Thanks Paul. Everyone looks cold (brr).

Looks like I should split this long topic to put rally arrivals/activities/updates into their own topic.

Good idea, Tom.

Can you move the coffee pic and last nites happy hour pic posts to the new topic?

Bob, your "Another great day on the desert" message seemed like an appropriate introduction to the new topic.
