Quartzsite, every fulltime rver needs to go......once, and if you like it, go yearly. Well, we liked it. The being with friends, meeting new friends, being unconnected and in the desert, we liked it. The show and all the people selling stuff and the lines, you can have that. It was unlike anything we have ever done, and that is why we liked it, thats what this new life style brings to us. I wish I could find out how many other rigs were in the desert in and around Quartzsite cause I think it was in the 100,000 or more. I know they say a million will pass thru the town in a winter.
This is the group that camped with. We all meet thru the Escapee RV Club. It is a support group of like people that all (mostly all) live in there rigs full time. They sponsored the rally that we wet to in May. We are considered the Graduating Class of 2009, there were some 2008 members camping with us. On Sat night we had our graduation ceremony where we burned mortgage papers, had a chile cook-off, sat around a bon fire and each of us said why we were doing this. It was a lot of fun. Karla's chile won so now you can ask Karla to make some of her awarding winning chile. Here she is holding her prize. We were in Q for just about 2 weeks and as I said, it was a lot of fun and we would do it again.
We need to thank Sandie for making all of this happen, thanks Sandie (and Jim).
