WOW! Where has all the time gone? This gathering is now right around the corner. I haven't even started my remodel. I'll just have to do a few small projects and use it as it is for this one.

We will try to make it to the gathering. Last year was our first time in Quartzite and we stayed a couple of days near Dome Rock. But we did not know about the BLM permit. Is it possible to get this permit on line ahead of time? If not could someone please give more specific directions about where to get it in Quartzite.

The permits are available from the camp host who is located on the north side of the road as you come out from town. Had a motorhome with a large flagpole in front last year.

Another random question: I read somewhere that BLM will only permit completely self contained units to camp on their land. Our unit has a 12 gallon external grey water tank and a port-a-potty. Apparently they do not consider this set-up to be "completely self contained" Any thoughts??

Gray water and port-a-potty can be dumped in town at the RV dump station for just a couple of dollars. You can also get fresh water there.

We have the same type of set-up, and have not had any problems from anyone for 2 years now.:

Update on the Gathering

This time of year, Quartzsite is the land of the swap meet. So, we're going to have one of our own.

It will be held Saturday morning, February 10th from about 9AM to noon. This is to be for camping and RV related items only. Please no broken washing machines or 1952 Dodge bumpers. There will be an envelope attached to each item with the persons name and how much they want for the item. If you want to purchase the item, put your money in the envelope and drop it in a box provided. If your item sells, you can then pick up your envelope(s). At the end of the swap meet, please pick up your unsold items.

Second activity we are adding is a presentation on solar for our little trailers. Bob Nichols from CEA Solar will be putting this on at about 11AM on the 10th. This will be a good chance to get your questions answered about solar.

Soup Thing will be held in the afternoon (time to be determined). Remember to bring a can of soup (Not Cream Style).

A big thanks to Arizona Eileen for suggesting these events and making the arrangements.

See you all there.

George and Betty

You really dont need to worry about it. It all very causal camping on BLM lands and your not likely to be even asked about your tanks. Nothing like parking on public lands up here ;-) Or at least that was my experience last year. The big thing is not to dump anything out on the ground.
Have fun!

Cool Tank dumping & pregathering

Just twelve miles west of Quartzsite, there is a rest stop just past the Quiznos where we emptied our porta potti two years ago.

Nothing on the pregathering yet? Just come to Buckskin Mountain in the preceeding week. Reservations would be a good idea, but there were empty spots last year. Plus there are other parks nearby.
