Feb 10-12, 2012: Quartzsite Gathering

Hard to believe, but this will be the 5th Quartzsite Gathering, Feb 10/11/12,2012. George & Betty and Doug & Michelle will be the hosts for the event.

George & Betty will be there a few days early, arriving on Wednesday morning, Feb 8th. There are always a bunch of fiberglass trailers already there when we arrive.

Where: Same as always - Dome Rock area, Quartzsite, Arizona. Aprox 5 miles west of Quartzsite on I-10 south side of highway, next to frontage road.

Camping: Dry camping ( No facilities) on hard packed dirt. Market, water and dump station are all located in Quartzsite, 5 miles to the east.

Campfires: Campfires are allowed. Please bring some firewood if you can. As usual we will have a central firepit.

Pets: All pets must be kept on a leash while within the camp area. You are responsible for cleanup and sanitary disposible of your pets waste.

Registration: No registration is required for the event itself, however a BLM permit must be obtained and displayed on your trailer. These are available free of charge from the BLM host trailer located a mile or two from town on the frontage road.

Soup Thing: If everyone would bring a can of soup (Not cream style) they are poured into a couple of large pots and shared with everyone on Saturday afternoon.

Wine Tasting: Anyone wishing to participate in the wine tasting, please bring a bottle of wine (Red or White, your choice). This will be an open tasting where the bottles are not covered.

Really looking forward to seeing everyone - old friends and new.

George

I just wanted to personaly invite everyone to our Quartzsite gathering for 2012! George has covered all the essential information in his post. I just wanted to say to those who have not attended that there is more to do than just our events. Quartzsite has tons of vendors, restaurants, RV Dealers, back roads and such. There is always something to see or do in the area. Our planned activities are all scheduled for Saturday thus freeing up time to explore locally! Most evenings are spent telling yarns around a community campfire and just enjoying the crisp desert nights.
For all the regulars, Thanks for attending and supporting this event and making it the succes it has become!
Hope to see you all there, Sincerely, Douglas Knudson

Thanx, George & Betty and Doug & Michelle, for keeping the Dome Rock Rally going! We plan to wander over from our winter 'nest' in Q for the weekend. Looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting lots of new folks too. Take care all and happy holidays! L 'n D

P. S. An FYI note - sadly, "Best Mexican" restaurant has closed but still lots of good eats in town, especially the "Main Street Eatery".

Isn't there a pre-gathering gathering? 2011 it was at Joshua Tree I understand. Where is it this year? Somewhere along the Co River?

Hi, Roger CH - we don't know about the pre-gathering gig. Your best bet for info on that might be organizer George Campbell - find his post in the "Rallies/Meets ..." catagory and e-mail or PM for details.

Hope to see you there. Regards, L 'n D

We have no "Pre Gathering" planned and have never done so in the past. What others may want to do is fine, however it would not be part of the "Quartzsite Gathering".

Unhappy Dome Rock Pre Rally

It seems to me that I saw a post about gathering at ?Parker? AZ, instead of Joshua Tree, CA and then caravaning to Dome Rock.

Computers are such fun.

Greg H, Sorry to hear you won't be coming out. You will be missed. However, I just mapquested the route and it would be around 1814 miles divided by 10 hour days at 60 MPH so you just need to leave 3 days earlier! LOL

Just 61 more days !!!!!!!!!!

Doug and Michelle

If I was attending this rally I would vote for the Buckskin State Park for the pre rally - was there a few weeks ago and it was the nicest park on the Colorado River that I found - not to mention that I happened to pull in as the Arizona Roundup of teardrops and vintage trailers was taking place and they were nice enough to allow my trailer to join them. Near there is the coolest bar I have ever been at about 5 miles down a desert road - Cienaga Springs Rd north of Parker - that most of the folks at the meet when to check out. No electical but they had cold beer and live band - open on week ends only. Very cool little place to find!
