Sounds like a great place to meet, hang out, and enjoy the lack of SNOW! Wink Grin

I think that people go to Quartzsite because other people go to Quartzsite.  Then there's an RV show in Quartzsite because people go to Quartzsite.  And there are dozens (maybe 100s) of rallies in Quartzsite because people go to Quartzsite.  As to why people go to Q in the first place, its a long story kind of like the chicken & the egg but now I think its just because people go to Quartzsite.

The first time we came here we swore we'd never come back but we've been back pretty well every year for over 15 years now, mainly because people go to Quartzsite.  Its just what you do if you are in an RV in the western US at about this time of the year.

Another word on Thursdays weather.  Lisa and I came over the mountains with M&C.  The wind was from the south.  I don't know the speed but it blew a sandstorm of wet sand obscuring the road.  The bus was stable but the passengers were annoyed and uneasy with the constant buffeting.  It blew the mirror glass out of the passenger side rearview mirror. 

When we headed north on 95 with the tail wind just off the back of the bus to the drivers side.  It was strong enough that it blew water in the rear seal of drivers sliding glass and this continued until about 30 mph speed.

The best thing about the 'tall tail' wind is, I arrived with more fuel that I left with. Wink

As to the question about why the Q?  One of the reasons, that people come here is partially location.  It is an easy drive and possibly the closest stop to Los Angeles and surrounding population outside of CA.

Let's face it Mike - the real reason people come to Quartzsite is because Michael Hargis is performing here at 4:00 today.  And he brought hit-it-honey with him.

Well, Quartzsite is the type of place you can buy a big, mounted moose name Morty and an elk named Elvis!  You think I'm kidding don't you. Cheesy  Christy Hicks

It has tried hard but never succeeded in raining today.  The desert dries up quick.  Come on over - there's lots of room.

Quartzsite is the place that people who spend a half million $ on a coach and look for a place to camp for free so they can shop for bargains at the flee markets.

Scott, I take it you never had the free coffee at a Eagle rally it took our guy 2 rallies to figure out how to use the coffee maker 7/11 is your best bet.

I keep reading about Q and now I figure I've got to check it out at some point, I'm thinking I probably will need solar(how much I don't know yet) before I can do a winter or part of one without hookups, I can already go over a week, almost 2 weeks on my tanks so thats doable I think but the kicker is the solar, I'll have to figure that one out. Q isn't going to happen this year and next year would really be a stretch too.  Way to much to learn about solar still, I'm seeing at least 3 different kinds of panels, all at different prices, some are even talking about flexible panels, so still way to much for this feeble old brain to soak up lol.  I also hear bad things about the wind turbines as being uncomfortably noisey, at 500 a pop for 400 watts or so that would be an option too but still a lot to learn about them.
