Come on down…
I get a lot of people who are either headed this way or already here and wondering where our group is located. I copied these directions
Quartzsite 2013 Directions
The Camping area we will be using is called La Posa West Long Term (LTVA). The entrance is just South of the I10 overpass on Highway 95. BTW, Highway 95 runs North and South. There is another Highway 95 that runs East and West in town and actually crosses the “main” 95 but I am told that this is the business extension/loop of the N&S Highway 95. This can be confusing.
The off ramp from I10 for Quartzsite is just West of the “center” of town at the Pilot and Loves Truckstops. (Exit #17) Get off and go North over I10 to Business 95 that runs parallel to I10 on the North side of I10. Go East about a mile on Business 95 to the “main” 95 and turn South (right) over the overpass. You should be able to see the “Big Tent” (might not be up until the middle of January) off to your right. Just past the Big Tent on the right, is the entrance Kiosk for La Posa West is about 1/2/mile. For those of you that have GPS, here are the co-ordinates: N 33* 38.734’ W 114* 13.198’. Be sure you use the same format. There are at least 3 different formats on my Garmin. Once these are recorded, at least mine will guide you right to the campsite as the BLM roads are on the Garmin maps. It is Road 532 on the left as you go South and we are about 200 yards “back in”. If you come in from the South from the Yuma area, a GPS might try to take you in the “back way”. Just pass this up and come to the entrance kiosk for La Posa West. There was a “back way” in last year but I went looking for it this year and it is blocked off.
The RV Show has begun…
On the way you can see a big RV balloon flying over the tent.
We started by walking around the tent before going inside and fighting the mad throngs of people.
We even spoted this fancy golf cart. They had all varieties of carts. REALLY COOL!!!
Lots of people…
There were a lot of people inside the tent making it hard to move around and get a close up of each vendor. There didn’t seem to be as many people as last year, but it was still very crowded.
I checked out a vendor with some car wax and John and I went in together for 2 bottles. Now you know what I will be doing today. I tried to see my friends Don and Kim Greene from Harvest Host’s but they were very busy talking with people so I will go back another time. I also want to drop in at the Amazon booth to say hello to my friends there as well.
We had a hot dog, pulled pork buffet with a ton of other goodies. YUM! YUM!
The end to a fun day…
Our campfire was a great ending to a busy day.
I have a few items on my list….can you scan the tents for me :O) Guess it will have to wait for me until next year :O)
Gonna have some fun, now, for sure! Glad you were so diligent in warming up the place for everyone! We would love to come down and see you. Don’t count us out, yet. Keep it warm.
“We started by walking around the tent before going inside and fighting the mad throngs of people.”
What are they mad at??
We’re waiting until Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon to hit the Big Tent. I just cannot handle all those people. And you are so right – not near as many people as last year or the year before. But isn’t this sunshine wonderful?
Hey Jimbo….so glad to meet you and everyone else today. It was a lot of fun. See you
on the road in the near future. Sara in Santa Barbara
It was sure nice meeting you and Tyler. I am excited about you getting your new LD soon. Then the fun begins!
I am looking forward to seeing you on the road.
Hi Jimbo, maybe next year I will make it to Quartzsite. Have been thru there many times, lived in Yuma for a few years before retiring. Have never been there in my RV, but have it looks like a lot of fun. Enjoy the great weather……..
Hi Jim! I will be there tomorrow (Tuesday) to camp for a couple of days or weeks. Looking forward to seeing that great toad you just got. Congratulations!!
Jeanne (and Riley)
You are truly enjoying yourself from what you’ve stated. I am glad for you. Try to stay out of trouble. 🙂
