Quartzsite Arizona

Christmas Morning sunrise 2015

I've been in the Quartzsite 'area' for some time now hanging out with vandwellers associated with Bob Wells blog & forum - cheaprvliving.com
My first camp in Quartzsite

Good people, I've enjoyed the time! Had a great Thanksgiving dinner, a pleasant Christmas Day and a good New Years Eve.

Down by the Colorado river

Spent some time in the Quartzsite area, a couple of places in the Ehrenberg area (right next to the California border) and now I'm back in Quartzsite for the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous (RTR).

There are a lot of people here for this, for some it's a vacation & for a great many of them it's how they live right now.

The turn off
Going down into the camp, there are a lot more than the photo shows

As a plus this is the time of the year when Quartzsite does it's thing.
RVs from all over come to this town & the surrounding desert (mostly BLM land) to meet new & old friends and to just hang out.

Next weekend is the start of the Big RV Show in the Big Tent, that's when most of the people are here. There is more to the RV show than RVs & RV stuff, there are companies hiring "workcampers" for the next season. Some folks can line up work for the rest of the year out of the tent next weekend.

The Big Tent
It's not just the Big Tent, there are all kinds of smaller tents selling rocks, beads, fossils, tools, gloves, jewelry... just everything! There is also a big flea market going on. I found great deals on a high lift jack and a Revere Wear cooking pot, the two things on my list this year!

Sales tents

flea market sales

Tools, gloves, military surplus and everything

If this isn't enough next weekend (15-18 Jan) is the VW camper gathering in Lake Havasu City, "Buses By the Bridge". That's like 70 miles away from me, I may not have a VW bus right now but I'm going....

Good colors sometimes

Not always warm

Even had a flyby!
