We missed participating in the ladder ball tournament, the trailers inspection, the Soup-in, the campfire and ukulele concert, but... we watched it all unfold from our perch on snob hill. Regardless, what a great 4 days it was!

“Little Camper” and I had a wonderful time at Quartzsite 2016 - our first rally!

I was knocked over by how friendly and welcoming everyone was. We had a great time, and we hope to be at other rallies in the future.

Everyone was incredibly nice…. but I’d like to specifically thank a few people….

Thanks to:

Greg A, Janea, and the kids for hosting, and also being super friendly.

Cat and Philip and Kate for befriending us when “Little Camper” was very upset that her Dad (me) jammed too many things into the Saturday morning schedule, and we completely missed the LadderBall competition…Cat and Philip and Kate you saved the day! Quite literally…..

Bill, and Crayola the parrot, for being so sweet.

Lance for giving us his (just won) BBQ tongs when we couldn’t find ours… and only wanted *one* toasted marshmallow in return. ;-)

and Lance for being so entertaining with his marionette! :-)

Az Jack & Nancy for showing me their 21’ Escape… along with Giselle (sp?) and Bill.

Jon Vermilye for answering my questions before the rally, and for being very kind as well.

I even got to meet the legendary Arizona Eileen! :-)

I’m sure I’m forgetting some names…. but *everyone* we met were awesome.

Big thanks to everyone.


What is the date for 2017 Quartzsite? (or has it been set?)

Great photos, Myron. I will definitely be heading to Quartzite some day. It would be nice though if our dollar got us further.

I see a bit of dust in the one shot, was that ever much of a problem there, what with being in the desert, and all?

Looks like First Place Prize for the Ladder-Ball Tournament was a 3 gal. jug. Consolidation was a 1 gal. jug. Nice Tophy presentation!

I kept hearing reference to Ladder Ball. Looked it up, and it is the same as Snake Toss, something we have been playing for 20 years. I have seen commercial ones with a huge array of names. Fun game, and our second favourite trailering game after All Terrain Bocce.

No, Jim, dust wasn't a problem. Wasn't windy. Just made for a more interesting picture when folks were driving around.

I did discover three trailer related issues, though. The upper awning brace swings up and should catch when engaged at the end of the roller tube. My awning upper brace spring catch, right side, was missing. My spare tire bracket bolts to the bumper, were loose, so the spare could move a tad. Needed tightening. I forgot to turn the valves from the hot water heater back to operational and that's why until Doug pointed it out the water pump wasn't getting water.
