OK, I guess I'm the curious one here who wants to know who has been to the most Quartzsite RV Forum Rallies; so I am taking a poll to find out who has attended the most RV Forum (yearly) Rallies in Quartzsite and who has the current and longest streaks of consecutive years attending these rallies in past years.

To keep it simple, only count the years that you attended the RV Forum Rallies (i.e., you parked your RV alongside others in the RV Forum group during the rally) and (if you want) indicate the AVERAGE number of days that you stayed at these rallies each year in the past (if you know).

Only include counts for the annual Quartzsite RV Forum Rallies (they are usually held in January) and the average number of days you camped at the RV Forum rally site each year (if you should happen to know). Don't include numbers for the rally in the year 2013 as that is yet to come.

To partake in the poll, just post a reply below with your Name(s) and your 4 inputs in a format like this:


R & S Salhus,6,6,6,12


to indicate your personal poll input.  I'll summarize the data in tabular form (like below) after we get a number of inputs.


                             Current Streak         Longest Streak        Total # of RV Forum           Average Stay
Name(s)                   (In years)                 (In years)             QZ Rallies Attended             (In days)
____________     ____________        ____________        ________________          ___________


R & S Salhus                   6                               6                                   6                                 12

The requirement that we must have lined up with the group voids my statistic of 10 years of participation.  The year I had cancer (2001) and the year I had a mild stroke (2004) we only drove out from Brenda for the potluck so we could see everyone.  It doesn't matter .... I have many pleasant memories of getting together with this forum group and that is what is important to me.  Wouldn't trade a minute of it all.  ;D

Bernie & Marlene Dobrin; 0 or 14, 11 or 14, 12 or 14, 12 or 14

Calculations based on how you treat the 2010 and 2012 rallies when we were only there for 2 days each before most attendees arrived. There were some there during the time we were parked before moving over to INTO or returning home. Use the first number if you want to ignore 2010 and 2012, use 14 for all 4 questions if they meet your criteria.

Tom and Margi, and others, I don't mind adding footnotes to make things clearer (see the footnotes below).   Here's  how the results look so far:

Hmm, my most days in Q I was not parked at the rally. 

So 1 year, 6 days. 

Include my visit the rally year and we can add 90 days to stay, but north a couple miles.

I would guess Terry Brewer would win that one.  The only time I remember him missing is the year they went to Mexico recently.  His first one would have been Jan. 1995.

Betty, sure, I think that would be interesting too, but wouldn't that be thread drift?   ???

Not that it matters because they aren't travelling any more and they didn't even want to go to Qtz the first year they went with us, but my parents went to Qtz 3 times and stayed 28 days each time they went. Moral of that story is, never say you don't like Quartzsite and will never go until you've actually been there. It kind of grows on you.

Terry Brewer    4,10,15 Average stays  between 10 and 90 days. 

Now do you want to talk about the entertainment activities over the years?

How about WOW! moments?  Such as: the time Betty Brewer stepped out of her car wearing her drop-dead gorgeous "principal goes to a meeting" clothes instead of her usual camping attire.  Now that was a WOW! moment.

    Rolf, we can't compete for the longest streak, however, we can for the shortest.  We came in 2010, stayed 5 days, and because we bought a place in Florida, we likely won't be back early enough in the year to attend again.  Nevertheless, I think we could competed for on the entertainment side, we brought a Nor'Easter with us that blew over many of the exhibits, the creeks and washes were over full, and we had 2 years average rain fall in about 30 hours.

Rolf, Terry has recalculated my figures and wishes to submit a correction.  He has attended an RVForum Rally at Quartzsite for 16 years.  Also  our  longest stay was 92 days.  We did that 2 years.

So  numbers should read 4, 10, 16, 10 to 92 days.

Something like that Jeff.  As  you recall Terry retired  5 full years before I was eligible for retirement and I commuted from Orange County California on weekends to join him in the desert.  I  know I took a shower more than once a week, even in Quartzsite.

We didn't stay at the rally, but 2006 was our first year. So if your including 2013 are numbers are
7 7 8 5

We dove in, in our white chevy pu. We were greeted by a hansom man wearing cowboy boots. We ask for Ron. And he said Ron who. That's was the first time we met Don Miller.

    Hey folks.  Don't overlook Bob Buchanan.  I know he was there everytime I was and a lot more.  Someone needs to ask him why he hasn't submitted.  He'd be right up there with Terry, or close anyway.
