  Margaret and I are sad to say we will not be attending this year. We have decided to go another direction. Now what direction we don't know yet but I have heard it's toward Florida. We will catch up the following year. We are having a great time in Nova Scotia and will be heading to Newfoundland next Friday. Stay safe!

Loretta and I have a reservation but will be cancelling soon.  We will be in Florida this winter just for something different.
We will hoist a cup of cheer in the direction of Tucson on NYE.  It snowed on us last year and I plan to take steps to prevent
being snowed on.  Thus, we will be south of Fort Myers FL. . . . .  Best wishes to all..

Larry and Henry,

Enjoy Florida. Florida was our winter vacation destination when we lived in Vermont. Getting the motorhome ready when it was below zero was always fun, but we enjoyed Florida.

Henry, that's great. We're headed back east again next year and plan to revisit Washington DC and NYC before heading to New England. I must admit from our years in Vermont we always went way around NYC/Philly/Baltimore/DC on our trips south.
We did spend a week in DC back in 2000 and it just wasn't enough time to see all I wanted, but we were on a 1 week time frame taking a break from a consulting job in Massachusetts.
We've never taken the Motorhome to NYC but plan to next year (staying in NJ). I used to make a lot of "commuter" trips to NYC from Chicago and really grew to dislike NYC for all the hassle, but we still want to return.

Actually I enjoyed both DC and NYC just wasn't a big fan of the traffic. Be took a tour bus into both cities and the Subway in Washington for a couple of days.

It seem Catalina state park is a hot spot for New years . I went in to book a spot and there are a few spot left in area A . I was thinking it would be a nice lay over for the ATV rally an Quartzsite rally .

Loop A is not far from B. At least the park has upgraded loop A power from 30 to 30/50 AMP and has added electric and water to the sites in A that used to be dry camp.

To my knowledge there really is no place at the park for go-karts, mini bikes or quads in the State Park, maybe because of the equestrian trails (there is a horse camp in the park). In the past there haven't been any kids at this rally. We do see some families in the park with kids but not nearly as many as in the summer.

Just to get everyone attending some ideas to thinks about for this years rally.

This rally is about "winding down" after the holidays and enjoying the friendships. We typically do things like going to the movies, dinners, and various field trips depending on the wishes of the attendees.
Last year we had an evening of bowling and everyone had fun.
There will be a Happy Hour every day if the weather allows and there will be a News Years get together in one or more of our RVs.
 
Local trips can include:
Note: many folks have done many of these so they tend to be small groups that get together to go. Not all are done every year, its up to the group to decide.
A trip up Mount Lemmon (via paved road)
Hiking at the State Park
Saguaro National Park
Kitt Peak National Observatory
Biosphere 2
Arizona Sonora Desert Museum
Pima Air and Space Museum
Titan Missile Museum
Old Town Tucson
Tubac (Artists) and Tubac Presidio State park
This year we are thinking about a day trip to Kartchner Caverns

If anyone has any other ides that like to suggest feel free to post it here, or just bring it up at Happy Hour.

A suggestion for the group to consider. If you plan a day trip to Kartchner Caverns, you might also include a stop at the Parrot Sanctuary which is also in the Benson area. See: https://the-oasis.org. They have over 700 birds there. Visits are by appointment only.

Chet, Looked at a map and I think this might be too much for one day. Kartchner and lunch will pretty much fill a day, but in the end it is up to the group to decide so I will put it on the list.

After checking the weather Margaret and I almost canceled. We decided to try and outrun Mother Nature. Instead of driving the 1,050 miles in 3 days we would do it in 2 days. After 610 miles today we ended up in Van Horn , Texas. Hope tomorrow goes as well as today. We will spent the night in Benson tomorrow visiting Chet, Laurie, Dan and Jeanine. See you guys sometimes after lunch Sunday.

Henry,
With that kind  of mileage you are gonna need the rest and relaxation of our Tucson rally.  I  hope you don't hit the winds we  are having here in Yuma.  I have been up and down our street this morning righting the neighbors trash  barrels.  I  know what they had for dinner, what they  got for  Christmas, what they drank, and just how many bottles of wine,  whiskey.  Trash is a telling thing.  Terry says we had 37 MPH gusts.

Safe travels!  See  you Sunday, hey that's tomorrow!

Henry,

Hope you didn't get the winds we had driving today to Catalina SP. See you tomorrow.

Betty,

It's probably good you weren't coming in today. The winds were mostly from the north so I-8 wouldn't have been much fun to drive.

We're currently staying on a Foothills Lot in Yuma, and like Betty I have righted a few trash barrels as well while on my daily walk. These winds are keeping folks indoors today. Hope to see many in Q in a few weeks. Have fun in Catalina.

Made it to Benson through wind, sleet and snow. Having  happy hour with Chet, Laurie, Dan and Jeannine this afternoon. I showed up in typical attire, shorts and tee shirt. Didn't take long to winter up! See everyone tomorrow after lunch.

If high winds is the excuse that you must use in order to justify going through your neighbors' garbage to spy on their lives and secrets, Betty, then those of us who to you well enough to possibly question the veracity of that story will, most certainly, accept what you say at face value. I will also assume that, since that's your story, you'll be stickin' to it.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to make the NYE celebration. We have had a family emergency. My mother fell yesterday and is in the hospital. See you all soon at another rally. Happy New Year to everyone.

A few of us arrived yesterday. Randy and Debbie arrived first. In the afternoon the four of had a chance to catch up on the past year. Dan and Jennifer arrived in the evening. 3 more coaches due in today.

This is probably the coldest weather we have had for the rally. Today it is nice and sunny, but still on the cold side.

NOTICE:

Happy Hour gathering will be in our coach at 3PM - site B33. There could be as many as 12 of us, but I think it will work.

We went to see STAR WARS in  3D today.  I went  because  my hubby went and so did the group. I'm not much of a  sci fi fan but   I loved, loved the  movie!

It was very  exciting.  Terry is going to have some  service work done on new Jeep in morning (adding an M&G  braking system)  but I am  ready to go see the movie JOY.  Hoping I can catch  a ride  with  someone  who is going. I just love this area. We can be at at the movies in 5 minutes or a restaurant or  grocery shopping and then  tuck  ourselves  back into this beautiful campground.

We are missing those of you  who could not make it.  There are no signs of snow this year but it is a bit nippy.  36 degrees outside at 8:38 pm.

Since it will be too cool to sit out this afternoon, anyone interested can join us for a happy hour visit after we get home from the movies and lunch.  I think 3 o'clock should be good.


   If you would like to skip the movie but, meet us for lunch, we should be at Red Lobster by 12:40, just let me know.

I don't want to hear about it being 36 degrees.  It hasn't gotten out of the 20's here in almost two weeks now.  It's getting a bit old. :(

I enjoy following the thread and wish we were there.  I hope everyone has an enjoyable trip and has a safe and happy New Year.

The movie of the day was JOY starring Jennifer  Lawrence.  She is a gem, wonderful actress and  movie did not disappoint the  5 of us who saw it! Previews showed many  additional  films  we want to see in the  future.

Richard and Linda joined us after the movie for Red Lobster  Lunch which  was delicious. Our waitress had a  name tag  James Bond.  She said her name was Mrs Bond. She said she caught all the fish of the day  but had no luck with  salmon.  She was a hoot! We wanted to  take a photo for Fred and Daisy as Red Lobster was one of their  favorites for  meals   during this rally , but we forgot  but I  did send them a photo of  an empty table of dishes!

Happy hour was held as advertised in Ken and Sheila's rig.  Just how  many people can you fit into  a big quad slide Monaco?  LOTS.  We were thrilled when   guest visitors showed up to our rally.  Camper Al and wife Nancy were brave enough to show up and meet a group of strangers they had only met on our  FVForum!  Everyone talked at once and I'm sure I could not hear  anything specific but we had a good time. 
Terry was delivered back to the campground by the  M&G service folks who  could not get it right the first time  and need to keep my Jeep overnight.  Wish us luck!

Hi Everyone,

Wanted to take the time to thank Ken and Sheila for their hospitality and having Nancy and I at their RV for our visit. We enjoyed meeting everyone and putting faces to the names we have seen here on the forum. I soaked in as much information as I could, and let them know a bit of our saga of RV hunting over the past few days. We long for the day we can park our unit and join the group for several days. Enjoyed the pictures of the group as well!

We took off a bit early from the group to inspect our camp spot we will be at later on. We drove down the road into Tucson, and located a Mexican Restaurant (Molinita) on east side of road, and ate our evening meal. Worth a trip if you want to leave camp and fairly close by in the 10,000 block.

Happy New Year to all.
An early dinner at local Mexican restaurant  Mi Tierras was a hit .  Terry took  photos of each table.  Sadly  Richard and Linda were under the weather and did not attend  festivities this evening but we will catch up with them  later!

We thank our hosts Margaret and Henry and Ken and Sheila for opening their rigs up to  the group for a  party tonight. Betty  provided games, Debbie provided a selfie stick and Ann provided the crayons. Someone  provided champagne and I enjoyed it !

Hike in morning at 10 am  ugh....

A few New Year Eve photos
Picture ending 850 is an attempt by Betty to get a selfie of herself and Sheila using Debbie's selfie stick. It failed as they were laughing too much. Later Debbie got in the act helping them, unfortunately that picture didn't turn out (I think I was laughing too much). But the whole thing was a really good laugh.

Happy New Years to all.

Nice to see some familiar faces and new ones as well and that everyone is having such a good time.  It certainly brings back many wonderful memories of times past, and that is what you are doing now, making memories for the future.  Wish we were still with you all, but time marches on and all good things must come to an end.  In the meantime, hang on to the memories and the friends you are making.  They are such a blessing later on.

After hiking on a  beautiful day we decided we needed to eat again.  So off we went to  Marisco Chichuachua's for some  Mexican Seafood.  We had seafood gumbo, grilled shrimp, fish tacos, shrimp cocktail, chicken fajitas and lots of extra garlic!

We were happy campers!

As the festivities at Catalina have once again come to an end and everyone is off on their own merry way, I'm once again grateful for having had the opportunity to share a good time with some good people. I thank you all for the part that each of you played in making this week such a great success and I look forward to the next time that our paths cross. Godspeed, y'all.

We did miss the fun in Catalina this year, but family duties wound up taking our attention.

I am not sure what the paper plate and sharpie is doing with Henry trying to write on his head,
but it did look to be entertaining.

Good to see AZ Randy out and about.  How did he manage to get Debby away from the grandbaby?
I assume they brought him out to show him around.....

Looks like a good time.  Especially missed Mexican Food at Mi Tierra.  It's always good.

Look forward to seeing you all in Big Bend. . . .

Go get'im Betty!  Betty is the best activities director for any rally.  Even when you think you can't possibly have any fun contributing to her madness ... you will.

So I tuned in to get destinations of those leaving Catalina, but no one has posted them here.  Where did you all go, or is that posted somewhere else?  Curious minds want to know........

We, the Brewers and the Fitzgeralds are at Indio FMCA rally. Jeff, who had to cancel Catalina, joined us also.

So far it's been cool and rainy but it looks like the rain is over.

Say HI to Fred.

Thanks Ken.  Didn't realize the FMCA was so close to the first week.  Usually around the 15th or so I thought.  Wondered if you all went to Peg Leg Pete or where
Have fun and buy lots of cool stuff.  Those vendors are depending on all of you....... ;-)

Ah, thanks Richard.  Sorry you had so far to travel....  And to all of you I'm sorry you had such a cold week there.  I think that must be a first.  Hope it warms up for QZ, though I remember a few of those times there were quite cold as well.  Well, we can just take the good when it comes, and endure the bad when that comes too.  RVers are extremely resourceful.  ;-)

Indio seems to be going the way of most FMCA rallies; fewer coaches, fewer vendors, and fewer display rigs.

Daisy, This  year the  FMCA  Western Area  Rally started earlier that  past years.  So the  plan is to  visit  Peg Leg right after this rally then  move on to Quartzsite.  Life is good.

Shopped vendors  today and decided I have everything they sell.  Not one tempting thing but I still have 2 more days  to shop!
Miss  you.
Betty Brewer

see where we are

If Peg Leg is crowded, there's lots of open boondocking on the other side of the ridge about a mile west of Peg Leg on S22.  You'll see the rigs as you drive in.  CA State Parks took over a large portion of that area and has opened it to 14 day boondocking.

Re the weather.  You should see the snow on the mountains all around Indio.  Lots of it and down fairly low.  Beautiful with the sunshine.  Now we just hope the mud dries up.
