News, Information & Advice for RVers
So true. We don’t even THINK about heading down there until February.
Went to Silly Al’s Pizza two nights ago and got seated right away! I expected a 2-hour wait! Town is definitely filling up though. I can’t imagine how local businesses manage 9 months of hardly anyone followed by 3 months of lines of people.
That would be the South Jersey Shore.
Having just finish a trans Pacific cruise, with nearly 500 Asian cruisers, lets all be glad they haven’t been bit by the RV/Quartzsite bug. They love to travel in groups (swarms), getting from point A to B with thirty folks in tow, intentionally blocking paths, expecting the most with the least effort in the most rude manner. And those damn selfie sticks!!!!
Well written. I spent many winters there and experienced all the same things that I just read and loved every crazy minute of it. It reminded me of a carnival atmosphere . Where else can you sit in bumper to bumper traffic with people from dozens of states, all with their own ideas of traffic rules that only apply in their states of course. Stand in line for what seems like hours at the Post Office and always learn something new and if you’re really lucky, get invited to a great Pot Luck and make new lifelong friends. Get to sing Karaoke at Silly Als and the Quartzsite Yacht Club. Get to listen to incredibly talented Musicians jam every week at La Posa. And the best part for me is having the privilege of meeting the most friendly, interesting and fun, eternally young people that I have ever known.
We spend all of January in Q and love it. There are music jams 7 nites a week. We dry camp out in the desert. Only traffic problem for us is backup at Chevron, my Dodge diesel prefers it. Love your newsletter.
Reminds me a LOT of Sturgis during their “rally week”. Q is a wonderful place with some of the most interesting folks I’ve ever met. We normally boondock out in LaPosa South for all season and generally enjoy the experience greatly. There’s even a 320 acre area set aside for clothing optional camping. There’s gold mining, jewelry making, ATV/UTV trails all over the area leading into the back country, a very active HAM radio club, indeed clubs of one kind or other for most interests…………Q = the Sturgis of RVers.
