I attended last year for the first time and had just missed the Majority of the flexible and the Eagles landed a day or so later just in time for the storm, The GM's were there the whole time. So my question is this Combined Rally going to be all the different coaches at the same time? I really enjoyed meeting all the different folks and seeing the endless variety of coaches especially the silversides that were there.

Hi Jaime,
I don't know about the Combined Rally you're talking about.
But we're going to be in Q starting about the 10th for about a month.
We stay out at MM 99 area.

I was thinking of driving over for a day visit, but the dates won't work.  One of my daughters is getting married that weekend, and she expects that we will attend.  Kids!

I have contacted the Flex group and they have other plans. They said they might be able to make it over a day or two after we are done. So stick around afterwards and they will show up.

I made a mistake on the registration in saying no late registrations on the meal. I will have to order T-Shirts in a day or two to have them done in time for the rally. We will still take registrations for the rally and the catered meal for a week or two.

I am hearing from all over North America. Should be a fun place to meet new people and swap lies about buses.

See you in Quartzsite.

Donna and I will be there. We enjoyed the rally last year, and hope to see some new friends again soon.  Sure looking forward to escaping this deep freeze for a month or so.

Fellows,

Is there an organized way to locate buses that are for sale at Quartzite? If one was to show up for the rally is there a bulletin board or some other method of locating buses that are for sale by the owners?

Thanks,

Doug

We're really sorry that we won't be able to be there this year but we'll be thinking about all of you while our arthritic joints dream of the Arizona heat.  And we'll be there in 2012 for sure.

Also, along the south frontage road east of Rice Ranch, there is usually motorhomes and buses for sale.  Could be a ton of bargains this year.

The low temp here last night was 2 but it was -12 the night before. I don't know why it's so difficult for my wife to understand why I keep my Bus at Q for several winter months. Local storage allows me a short commute to Indio and the Quartzsite Rally. Sorry to hear bob of the north won't be there this year. I have the pics he did last year readily available when I want some great memories.

Looking forward to seeing another 100 or so Bus Nuts.

Hmmm,
Arcadia didn't quite work out for me. Wonder if they would notice if I went missing during the last 3rd of January?
