We were in Quartzsite Jan 24-27 the last weekend of the RV show and the Gem and mineral Pow Wow. The events in town have been declining for the last 5 years or so. Next year will be a big change as the town is currently dealing with sewage upgrade and added fees to RVs to pay for it and how it will effect the events in town. Allot of restaurants in town are changing format or closed. We struggled to eat out every night in town due to the changes in vendors. Too few places and everyone struggling to find a seat unless you want fast food. The town rolls up the side walks at 4:30 and everyone heads out for food. This is weird being from LA on daylight savings time and Arizona doesnít have daylight savings. We camped in the BLM lot north east of town. We didnít see any eggs there. As we past Dome rock there were about a half dozen eggs spread about. If we go again we will probably target MLK weekend as I think there will be more vendors that haven't left yet. We like walking the miles of junk we donít seem to buy anything except food but we get in a good 2-1/2 days of walking. The weather when we were there was so nice. Another issue is during that weekend we crossed into Arizona on Friday Jan 24 on the 10 freeway from California there was heavy border patrol presence going into Arizona and when we left on Monday the 27 that presence was still there going into Arizona. They stopped every car and eyeballed everyone and a good percentage of the cars they walked the dogs around. They had several people in immigration detention and other issues. I talked to a couple of vendors in town that had issues with getting a sellers permit because of either ID issues or not having a birth certificate. That was a new problem that cropped up this season. There were no issues in or out on the California side.
During a popular weekend I donít see how you could have a rally out there on open land you could never get a group together all in one place.
Have a nice rally.
Come back this week end and you will find out!

Pete and Jackie,
It will be nice to see and hear you LOL.
George was thinking our 12 trailer count was to low, well after a walk a bout at 1600 we counted 17 trailers on Monday, days before the scheduled starting.

I'll be there tomorrow late morning or early afternoon. Looking forward to meeting everyone. Do I need to get a BLM permit before or after I park ?

As to the permit, you can come park first if you would like. The easy way is as you head west on the frontage road, about a mile out of town on your right is the BLM host. Just pull in, get the permit and continue west a few miles until you see us on your left.
See you when you get here.
George and Betty

George, Betty and everyone else involved in making 2014 Quartzsite a nice time: THANK YOU!!

It was a very nice gathering, with many FGRV's. Trillium even towed one in from Phoenix for everyone to take a gander at. Weather was very comfortable (after the sun came up). The Soup Lunch was very good and hearty. Lots of people had success at the swap meet also.

Did anyone get the final count of how many came?
