Yes, I’m still in Quartzsite. Damn I really do like this quirky little place. But, this time around, I’m here now almost three full weeks and yet no sign of the old ‘hitch-itch’.
The weather has been PERFECT so why would I want to move anywhere else ??
This Blog Post is really for me and for the Folks who have never been to Q. You regular Q Folks – well just go on to the next Blog. You’ve seen all of this.
Rita ‘n Pat and their pals are just across the wash from me – to the left from the above picture. Everybody over there was SICK so I kept my distance !!
But they did promise me a ride on their ATV once they were feeling better and NOT CONTAGIOUS !!
The only way to truly see and appreciate the desert is with an ATV. I want an ATV !!!!
As I’ve said many times in the past, it takes very little to amuse me these days. One of things I love to do is go around the various boondocking areas to see all the different rigs and how people set themselves up.
Quartzsite in January there is everything here from multi-million dollar rigs to the poorest of the poor.
This person is obviously living out of a van.
Lots of people are here for the whole season so put a lot into making extra ‘living’ space. See the shelter they have put up behind their rigs.
Lots of stuff around this person’s area.
Due to all the sickies across the wash, we didn’t get out for this ride until after the crowds had left as the “Big Tent” is over. It’s still busy here in Q and still lots of Vendors to browse through.
The area below was JAMMED with RV’s. Lotsa space now though.
This person even planted flowers.
And this person made a rock and solar garden and decorated the shrubs.
Look at the great shape this old bus is in.
Yup, That’s his ‘home’.
Lots of Folks spend a great deal of time gathering rocks to define their space.
Wouldn’t want to have to put gas in that truck !
These Folks love their Flags and sure have lots of Solar.
And they even have speciality signs made up to direct people to where they are.
Yup, He lives in that tent. AND he has defined his space by filling milk jugs with sand and placing them in a wide circle so no one else will park close to him.
Living in his car.
Would you want to pull this trailer ? Well at least you could pull TWO ATV’s with it.
I am REALLY behind on my Blogging and have TWO very big announcements to make.
One is I (again) met yet another FAMOUS Blogger. The other announcement ….well……..you’ll just have to wait and see. hehehehe
