Tim and I along, with "Charlie", will be coming to Quartzsite, arriving Jan 22nd.  We were hoping to go to the FMCA Rally in Indio this year, but it looks like it isn't going to work out.

Hope everyone is staying warm.  It was 17 degrees here in Kernville this morning and going to be like that for the next several days.

Eric and Ginny LaJuene.
We plan to be there from 1/2/14 to 1/29/14.
This is our first RVforum rally and our first time at Q.

Question... You mentioned paying for extra weeks. Do they allow you to stay in one spot for 4 weeks for $80? I thought there was a 14 day limit or is that just for the free areas?

Thanks! We're very excited about our first Q visit and we're looking forward to meeting you all!

Once you find a spot to park you have that spot until you move, leave, or extend. You will get a sticker on your RV windshield and on your tow vehicle. Spots are not marked off as such -- it's all open desert.

Yes, the free areas are for two weeks only - though that is not strictly enforced from my experience over the past 13 years. I will usually stay in one of the free areas closer to town, then move out to our site location a few days before the rally begins. Some come early, some stay after the rally. Good times by all either way.

Let us know if you have any more questions. Am glad to read that you will be attending. We will have a number of first time QZ folks again this year.  :)

Sandie and Bill from northern Michigan will be there.  Should arrive 17th or 18th and stay at least a week. We met up with Henry and Margaret last winter in TX on our maidan voyage getting out of our snowy winters.  They told us about this and it sure sounds like a great time. Looking forward to it.

Bob, can't you get a "season" pass for Quartzsite that costs something like $140.00 which is good from September to April or some such; or have they done away with that option.

     Yes, Marsha, you can if staying the full season or as long it's more feasible than extended 2 week stays. Eric and Ginny will only be there from the 2nd to the 29th, so one extension would be all they would need if they come directly to our site vs. hanging out in one of the free areas until our rally begin date. Last year quite a few came prior to the start date.

There should be a link to BLM pricing on the list of attendees page. Fortunately, they seem to be holding their pricing from last year.

Note: The sign up page will be down for a few hours.  My server seems to be having a bad day . . .

With the two most recent sign ups we now have 17 on the list.

Just a quick up-date, we will be arriving on 17th or 18th not the 16th and we're coming from Calif. Now, as long as I can follow those directions, being my first time to "Q", I'll make it sooner or later to the designated location....LOL   ;D

It looks like Jerry and Ardra FitzGerald haven't signed up yet.  We plan to attend from Jan. 18-26 and will be arriving from Borrego Springs in California.

We've been coming to Quartzsite for many years, even before we first met the RV Forum folk at the 1997 Centermost rally in Estes Park, Colorado.  Our first time may have been 1994, or at least in that time period, and we stayed at campgrounds in town.  I can remember wondering why anyone would want to camp out in the desert with no hookups.  Then we met the RV Forum and found our Quartzsite "home" at La Posa Section 541.  See you all soon!

Hi all, Paul and Mao Unmack are presently in Quartzsite scouting out the seen.  Clear sky, 60s day time temp, night in 40s.
We are looing forward to meeting the good people on the forum.  We have followed the forum thanks to Gary's refrigeration posts.  We stayed at Gary and Nancy, then then Ned and Lorna's.  What great hospitality, friendship and laughs!

We are going to bounce between Quartzsite, AZ and Jacumba, CA where we can stay on 160 acres of the most beautiful high desert in the world!

There has been discussion of my dong a refrigeration campfire chat.  If the powers being would contact me I would like to arrange it.

Thanks again!

We decided to follow Bob's lead and camp in the free area first then move down to the RVforum site later. We'll still be in Q 1/2 to 1/29 but the first half or so in the free areas.

Absorption Gas Refrigeration Seminar
Thursday January 23rd, 2014
 2:00-4:00 PM
RV Forum Rally Site

On Thursday afternoon Mr Paul Unmack of ARP (Absorption Refrigeration Protection) will be on hand to discuss the principals of how gas absorption refrigerators work and the problems they can create. He is the inventor of the patented ARP control system that has been discussed extensively here on the Forum as well as other RV venues. Those of us who have had a chance to discuss his experiences with this issue are fascinated and impressed with his knowledge of the system

Paul asked that we allow plenty of time for Q&A so that everyone can have as much time as you need to understand the topic.

The meeting will be at the RV Forum campfire as well as nearby coaches with gas absorption refrigerators to offer hands on examples. It is open to attendees, other Forum members in the area, as well as anyone you might know with an interest.

SEE YOU SOON!
