I have reexamined Google Earth, and the directions given, and here are updated coordinates:

The [b]intersection of Dome Rock Road West and the Overpass road for I-10, exit #11:
33<sup>o</sup>38'46.84" N
114<sup>o</sup>20'08.74" W
elevation 1202 ft

Quote:
Go east on the frontage road 100 yards [b]or so to the entrance road on your right.
If I can trust Google Earth's measurements
The first road on your right is 360.49 yards (or 0.2 miles) from the previous intersection at:
33<sup>o</sup>38'45.22" N
114<sup>o</sup>19'56.15" W
elevation 1202 ft

ah, you're gonna have to get out of that one.

Beagles will not be there. The Kitty will be tho!

Kitty as in Wilson the Kamping Kat, not Kitty the dog...(Ya, I get confused in my own house too)
Oh no, and they were so looking forward to meeting the Beagles. Hope Wilson is quite entertaining...

He has his moments.. he's never been around kids, but since his life is "Play Play Play" and "Eat eat eat" I am sure they can be entertained easily.

Looks like the weather can go either way this time of year-no matter we will all have a good time!
Does anyone know if we can fill up the water tank at either Loves or Pilot at I10 & I95 or in the proximity of Quartzsite?
We probably will be there a day or two before most-anyone else arriving on the 30th?

Here are the final Coordinates for the Quartzsite gathering at Dome Rock.

N 33 deg 38.606
W 114 deg 18.171

Or at Dome Rock exit go south of I-10 and then proceed east on the frontage road for 1 1/2 mile.

Drive careful and we will see you all there!

I found it!

It's quite the turn out, and a lovely area, not in the thick of the Quartzite "Sea of RVS".

Kind cool!

Dave and Leslie gave me the grand tour of Quartzsite today and fed me $1 hang-a-burgers. Yum! Thank you guys for the tour, you took me to where I wouldn't have gone on my own or been able to figure out on my own. There is a lot more to the BLM areas than what you think there is just looking at the seemingly hap hazad sea of RV from the Freeway.

Saw the Oliver trailer... eh.. it's not to my personal liking but it does have a nice fit and finish and lots of gadgets to play with.

Storage space for "stuff" seems to be lacking, but the bathroom is nice and I liked the leveling jacks and the "Chrome" interior highlights.

They even had a couple colored ones.. an all red one and a black one. They were different to look at from the bright white glass we are used to, and I got to see what it would look like if I did this one in Red (It isn't going to happen)

Hey Gina! You might as well stay out in the desert! It's dumping snow up here again. Bet your parking spot is gone again. Just got the electricity back yet again

Yeah, I have been closely monitoring Rim.

I WAS actually headed to Yuccaipa Regional, but the winds out here are not towing safe, s I pulled off in Blythe and am staying put until morning.

I barely got a chance to visit with Gene from the Casita Forum. It was a pleasant suprise to see him there. There were many folks I haven't met yet and it was great to see everyone.

Chris made us ALL pancakes this morning and delivered them to our trailers, complete with dining ware. Thank you! The smores were outstanding too!

Gregs family is very nice and I am sorry Wilson was being "Cat" like and not playing with the kids!

Thanks to everyone for putting this on! I will definitely come back to enjoy the view and sunsets.

Oh, and I finally got my shower.. I am sure you are all relieved :-P

But we couldn't get entirely away from commercials. This is a banner ad for an RV Dealer.
