This will be the 6th Quartzsite Gathering, Feburary 8/9/10, 2013. Doug has had to drop out as co-host due to his work, he never knows where he will be from month to month. With a little luck, he and Michelle will be able to make an appearance at the gathering. Betty and I will continue to host the event with the help of many of our friends.
People don't seem to get enough of a good thing and just keep showing up earlier and earlier. So, the official dates are Feb 8-10, 2013, but we will be there the Sunday or Monday before. If it's like last year, there will be several trailers already there. What the heck. it's free.
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 ar allowed. Please bring some firewood if you can. As usual we will have a central firepit.
Generators: Generators are fine but please NO contractor types. Last year we had a couple of them and they drove people nuts. The normal (camp style) Hondas, Yamahas etc are fine. Please try to have them off be mid evening.
Pets: All pets must be kept on a leash while within the camp area. You are responsible for clean up and sanitary disposal of your pets waste. Please respect your fellow campers.
BLM Permit: 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.
: No pre registration
is required. We will have a registration/signup table at a central spot (signs will show you where). This is just name, town, state and trailer type. You will be given a name tag at that time (no cost).
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.
Really looking forward to seeing everyone - old friends and new.
George and Betty
