quartzite questions

OK I am looking for some experts we are going to hit quartzite in feb for the big egg rally!

I want to go primitive but I have no potty I want a waterless potty. how about one of those tents thingees for our single holer!

how much water do we round up? where do we get all this water?

Now to convince the wifey to go this primitive but she grew up with a 2 holer in the backyard might not be all that difficult!

do you think she can hold up to 2 weeks of this? So many decisions to make!

bob

I had some of the same problems when I went several years ago. I ended up staying at Cactus Gardens in the non-hookup area. There's a building that the office is in that has laundry, showers, and rest rooms. There's also water near the door to the laundry, showers, and rest rooms.

Many of the questions you asked only you can answer.

The rally in February is held at the Dome Rock area. There are no provisions for camping other than an open area to camp. It is 4 miles from the town of Quartzsite where water is available for a nominal fee. There are always trailers there that don't have bathroom facilities and they use a variety of means to do their bathroom business ranging from a Lug-A-Loo (toilet in a bucket) to porta potties. You will no doubt have to dispose of the waste at least a couple of times during a 2 week stay. There are dump stations in town and a landfill dump that is open 3 or 4 days a week within 7 miles of the rally site. Good luck convincing wifey and hopefully we will see you there.

larry

well I think we can do it. too bad there aren't portapotties but I guess no one would want to chip in.

I think the funny tent with a single holer out there might be the logical answer you know. or I have a hospital single holer dig a hole take the bucket out and have it!

when moving out just shovel the dirt back in! oh anyone have a sears catalog?

Bob - Digging a hole at the area where the rally is might be very difficult as it is all stone. I would suggest some form of portable waste collection and then empty in town.

If you are camping in a BLM LTVA area, you must be self contained (10 gal black water) or stay within 500 feet of a pit toilet facility. Porta Poti's do not qualify. I'm not sure if Dome Rock is considered part of this or not. I know some Dome Rock users are not self contained, but they may not be in compliance.

17. Self-Contained Vehicles
a. In Pilot Knob, Midland, Tamarisk, and Hot Springs LTVAs, you may camp only in self-contained camping units. The La Posa, Imperial Dam, and Mule Mountain LTVAs are restricted to self-contained camping units, except within 500 feet of a vault or rest room.
b. Self-contained camping units must have a permanent, affixed waste water holding tank of 10-gallon minimum capacity. BLM does not consider port-a-potty systems, systems that utilize portable holding tanks, or permanent holding tanks of less than 10-gallon capacity, to be self-contained.

You might be OK at dome rock

There is a rest area on I10 about 5 mi west of Dome Rock with flush toilets and free potable for filling water tanks. A Loves travel Center about 3 mi east of Dome Rock on the way into Quartzsite has toilets (maybe showers too) but not potable water. There are a few places around Q that sell potable water for 25 cents a gallon.

Dome rock area is not LTVA it is 14 days. The Quartzsite LTVA is just south of town off the main highway. They have built in restrooms there for the people staying there. We use a small porta potty and dump it every 2 days. You could bring a larger blue tote and dump the porta potty in that and then take that to dump it at the dump station on the way to refuse center. You could use the dry type potty with the disposable bags and take them out to the refuse center on the north side of town. Getting water is not a problem. Quartzsite is a town use to handling RVers. summer there is about 1000 people, in the winter there is close to 100,000 in its hey days. With all these RV's its all manageable.

Nothing wrong with having a little pyramid tent as an outhouse. It will double as a shower tent. For a toilet, a 5 gallon bucket with seat ring https://www.amazon.com/Reliance-Prod...ds=porta+potty can work, just put in two trash bags (in case one leaks) and cover up the byproducts with kitty litter or sawdust.

Or get one of these porta potty units and add some water for flushing... https://www.amazon.com/Camco-Portabl...ta+potty+camco

A few years back, someone had a Scamp for sale that had been modified with 2 holes in the floor, for ice fishing. If you had that unit, you could just go through the hole and then move to a new site before anyone got wise.
