Today was cool, windy and overcast.  Nevertheless we all seemed to find things to do.  We showed Joe and Doreen how to drive across the wash and go into town under the I-15 overpasses.

Some of today's happy hour photos are attached.  As you can tell, we're all bundled up - except for those tough Canadians who seem to think it's warm here and wear shorts.

It has been many years since Jimmy & I were able to attend a Quartzite Rally. But we are sending two new friends your way. Be on the lookout for Rudy & Eileen Latasa from Socorro, NM.They are friends from the electric co-op where I serve on the board.

I'm sorry too, Jeff - we'd hoped to see a lot of folks. We're in Raton now, hopefully home this afternoon. Then we'll winterize and get the genny scheduled for repair. Sure hope this is the last serious problem for a long time.

Monday was a bust here in Quartzsite!  It was cold and really windy.  None of us even stuck our heads out the door when it came time for happy hour.  It was way too windy and even drizzled a bit.

Luckily it's much nicer today.  A few of us went into town and we are planning to have happy hour today.

Marlene and I are headed to Palm Desert tomorrow morning to spend the weekend with friends from CT. We'll be passing thru QZ late in the morning and will try to stop by and say hi to any around.

We had lunch with Lorna Reiter yesterday, but didn't take any pictures so it wasn't an official mini-rally. She said she is planning on being at the pot luck on Saturday.

Please get your  photo taken during  happy hour this afternoon.  I'm doing couples shots so you  may need to  grab your spouse and get them to cooperate for this photo op.  I'll do a  Quartzsite Collage of all the  2017 Attendees for posting after the  rally is  over.

I'm also passing out the white envelopes for  contributions.  OR  look at the top line of your screen and hit the  Donate button.  Makes it really  easy to donate to our RVForum.

Some pictures taken yesterday(today we went to Castle Dome and the ghost town/mining museum).
The first one shows the  "Big Tent" really is big! The second is the line to the dump station at noon. Luckily we won't have to dump until after we leave. The third shot is of some scenery just behind our camping area.

Seven Vehicles left at the sharp crack of  9 am led by Terry Brewer headed to "The ridge" for  our annual off road trip.  Our tail  gunner Larry Dodd had a CB radio so we knew we could keep most of the  people in a line.  Two of the vehicles were  very new to their  drivers and had never seen the size of some  of the rocks on the road like we found.  We managed a tight squeeze area with  no mishaps.  Did have a comment  from John that  he was glad he did not bring his pickup through that and he was a calm  passenger with Joe. (That is until he saw Jerry  pull a 3 wheel slide off road deal  and nearly go over! )

Big grins from Joe as well as Bill and his navigator Pam.  I  think they are now hooked on off road driving!  Larry is a seasoned off road driver who usually does sand but he liked the rocks today as a  different challenge.Wife  Billie did a bit of wandering  around to get perfect photos of  the desert.  Michael did  this run 2 years ago when  his rig was only 2 weeks old.  Now at  2 years old  his vehicle has had a make over!  Well equipped for all the fun challenges off roading can hold.  He offered a ride along   to Jo but  we  are  not convinced she is ready to purchase a  new Rubicon just yet!

Jerry and Ardra each drove 1/2 of the trail and their Grand Cherokee with air lift maneuvered through the rocks with  no problems.

Had a very short lunch overlooking a beautiful spot.  However  Loretta and I do not like wind nor  cold and we  had  both all  day. But  no damage, no flat tires, no bugs.  Back at  camp by 2:00.  More time for  big tent shopping.

Sadly the happy hour was blown  out with cold winds and we did not get to retell our off road stories today!

Great group.  Maybe  photos to  follow!  Stay tuned.

 Another glorious Quartzsite Desert Day!  But  I am tired as I awoke early to hubby exclaiming " Oh my gosh it is 8:52 am !"  Seemed curious to me as it was  completely dark outside.  No signs of light creeping in behind any shade.  I did not feel as if I had enough sleep for the night.   But he was clearly alarmed as he had a   9:00 breakfast date with  Jeff and John.  (later Lou)

 Seems his alarm went crazy with the use and non use of inverter to power the correct time.  The back up battery power to his alarm clock  must have failed as MY Clock  said it was 4:30 am!  Yep, it was 4:30 am.  Not  my time to arise!  But I was awakened and may not have  gone to sleep restfully again.  Gotta love boon docking!

So he went sound asleep again and awoke well in time for his breakfast with the "boys." 

I joined the group walk at  10 am  and we took our trash to the  bins.  This is a  fun filled rally with a variety of events!  Trashy  people are pictured! And our route.  Not pictured is the  huge Jack rabbit that quickly  pranced across our trail and  did not allow time for a photo.

Jerry took  advantage of a pit toilet along the way but  the group did not  wait for him,  knowing he can walk fast enough  to catch up.  Well indeed he did catch up as he hitch hiked and got a ride with a fellow in a Yellow Polaris.  He does not get full credit  for the walk!

Promptly and I mean PROMPTLY  at 2 pm our potluck  began!  We invited the  new first time visitors to our Quartzsite  RVForum rally to go through potluck  line first. The newbies appreciated this  prompt start and opportunity to  go first.  However it did not much matter just how early you got to get in line as the wind was brisk and cooled food from table to  chair.  This did not  stop  me from a second trip.  I am always amazed how our potluck works with no planning.  We have just the right amount of main dishes , sides and desserts!  Yum and Yum.

 I snagged a recipe for  Carol's chicken Tetrazinni .    Other recipes may be a secret.  I did  my usual   Crispy  cabbage salad  but I did forget to add in the toasted sesame seeds. DUH.  See recipes in RVForum Library for past hit recipes.
Make a request here and perhaps the chef will share the secret!
