Quartzsite, AZ

Well, we made it to Quartzsite from LA with no problems. And we found the group we were meeting, which can be difficult. And now we boondocking, which means that we're completely without hookups. We can only use the water we have on board, and our electric power comes from our batteries or the generator. It's a lot of fun to see how long you can survive with these limited resources.

We're camping with our friends from Monaco Northwest who we met in our travels during the summer. We attended their rally in Birch Bay, WA, and also the Monaco rally in Salem, OR. They're a real fun group and we looking forward to spending some quality time with them on outings, happy hour, and around the campfire.

When we were backing up the motorhome into our spot we messed up the desert. Naturally, Linda couldn't let that pass so she restored the pristine sands.

This is a really nice spot that is BLM land where you can camp for free for two weeks. That might have something to do with the 500,000 other RVs parked out here. But it's so large of an area there's plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Here's the view out our front windshield!

One of the draws here is the giant flea markets and the annual RV show. There's hundreds of RVs on sale here also. We're going to explore the area while we're here and try to figure out why there's so many people here.
