If you enjoy having a campfire, please bring some firewood. If no one has moved it, we have a great fire ring where Happy Hour, evening campfires, our potluck, and round the clock visiting take place.

I am parked at q and will find the site in the morning, probably late morning.  Wandering around in the dark is not too smart.

Last year several of us bought a bundle of firewood from a local supplier to donate to our fire ring.

Gary and Maria have arrived.  We have a box of wood scraps that will keep the flame going for maybe a couple of hours.  Beside us, I see another 6 rigs.  Weather is sunny and pleasant.  A bit nicer than the high desert of Joshua Tree where we spent the last two nights.

Sorry I haven't been responding but have been under the weather for a few days but am up and about again.


Good prices on firewood were out on the west side of town somewhere?.


Gary and Darlene you are down.


Is the tent up?

Good morning all you Quartzsiteites and Quartzsitesite wannabees.  It was 39 this AM.  According to the weather guy, it felt like 36.  According to my non-heated motorhome, it felt like minus 10.  Actually it was a comfy 45.  Comfy if you have lots of blankets.  Hope you're all having a great morning.  For those of you yet to arrive.  Bring warmth.  Sky's are clear with a few wispy clouds.  A beautiful day in the desert.

Gary,

I just knocked on your door but probably not loud enough to hear over your generator.  I got both furnaces running and plenty of stuff to make breakfast with if you and Maria are interested in eating.

Thanks for the invite.  We do have heat.  Just don't keep it on at night.  Maria's still in bed dreaming of warmer weather.

Thanks to Bill, aka (Huey Pilot), our tour guide and gracious host, we enjoyed a most delightful and adventurous afternoon with another Bill and Robbin aka Robbinsbill, and visited some of Quartzsites nearby historic areas.  Maria, our photographer, provided a few candids.  As soon as I can remember how to down size the files, I'll add a few pix.

As Wendy has said we will be arriving late hopefully sometime Monday.
I hate it when you have to sit and wait for parts and some Mail and packages to arrive.
Stuck in Cathedral City. I mail does not arrive on Monday I will leave a forwarding address and the head to Q.
One good thing is gas has has dropped to $1.99.

Monday Steve of Steve and Sue on this forum and I are going down to Yuma to get a full utility trailer of pallets for the camp fire.  There is a pallet company that rebuilds pallets and the ones that they cannot rebuild they used to burn.  The EPA banned them from burning so they are happy to give them away.  We just tip the skid loader for loading them.

Make sure those aren't treated lumber, not good to burn.  Perhaps that's why the EPA banned them.  You'll have lots of nails left over :)

Check with the campground host before you head down to Yuma - in past years the LTVA had a limit of 1 cubic yard of firewood per group campsite http://www.quartzsitebusinesschamber.com/blm.htm

We did the same thing in 2000, getting a pickup load of surplus pallet lumber from a packing house in Blythe and in spite of our best efforts, wound up having a significant amount left over at the end of the week.

Having no place to store it, we left it on site when we left, figuring others would scavenge it for their own fires.   Apparently this didn't happen, because the following year the LTVA adopted the firewood limit.

And yes, we made sure it was untreated wood - that's why they couldn't use it.

The Ding Bats get there wood from this same source.  I thought it was a good idea but It is about a 200 mile round trip and I will wait on advice when the main Forum members arrive.

Bob is up in California probably having a kitten over the thought of  what the pallets would do to his fire ring. IIRC back in 2006 or 2007 we had a bunch of them left over that we used as soon as he moved to town; had a few great fires. 8)
