Here is a link with map and info for the annual Eagle rally at Quartzsite. For those interested, the Eagles International Chapter meeting will be held Friday night on site.

We expect to be staying in Parker, Az that week and go to Quartzsite at least once.  Even though we do not have an Eagle, I had hoped to stop by and meet a couple of the giants of the bus/busboard world.

Do to an annoying health issue, we have had to postpone our trip.  I hope to make it there by Sunday 1/18.  Hope some will still be hanging out.

Darn Lin! I had hope to be able to talk some politics with you while we were there! ;)

We'll be gone by Sunday but I do hope to have another chance to meet you one of these days.

Politics Songman?

I didn't know you had any interest in the subject.  Your not one of them radicals, are you?  Anyway, I have been fighting a respiratory infection for a while.  It was recently called pneumonia.  The first treatment did not work, so I have gotten a different doctor and seem to be making good progress now.  I should be ready to travel by Saturday.  As I understand you are a musician, I would much rather hear music, which actually takes talent, than talking politics, which anyone can do.

Nope, no interest in politics at all. Love some good music though. I'm glad to hear you are improving. I've been fighting breathing issues myself. They haven't put their finger on the cause yet, but he doctors are making a good living doing a bunch of tests on me.

Enjoy your time at Quartzsite. We'll be gone but I know there are a lot of people who will be hanging out longer.

Sorry we're not there - not that there's anything wrong with Florida - just sorry we can't be in several places at once.  I visited briefly with Jim Shepherd last year and it looked to me like the Eagle guys were having way too much fun.  Next time we're at Q we'll be parking off to the edge of the Eagle rally.  Don't want to get too close for fear we'll turn that funny reddish colour.   ::)

We did go and camp near Parker starting Saturday, 1/17.  We went to Quartzsite Sunday.  But when I stopped by the Eagle-plus section and tried to locate Luvrbus, I was told that he had just pulled out.  Since I knew that Songman had also left and did not know any other names to look for, we just went about looking at the rocks and Chinese crap for a couple of hours before heading back to Parker.  I guess I'll catch up with you guys some other time.
