Hi Tom! Oh we have been there a few times, the first time, we toasted the engine ;D but made it down there in the truck. The following year made it down there in the bus.

 After an engine swap, we made it down there in the bus and had a swell time! Last year I just strolled down to pick up our ( new ta us ) seats from ( can I have your jeep ;D) Andy.  This year, we are still pluggin away at the ol' Eagle, it is running swell but need to replace a few hyd lines for the rad fan motor, I am husslin to git it all done by that time and hope to be there.

 hoping to be there...

My wife and I are planning to visit Quartzsite on Saturday. We won't be driving our bus due to a minor logistics problem. Cant find a babysitter for my dogs and cant escape a previous obligation.  I have so many dogs they have their own bus when we travel.

Back to basics, what sites do we hit? Western GM is on my list as we are a member but no one from the group has seen/met us yet. I of course will be looking for PD  4104's.

What else is there to see?

In 2 years we will start to hit rallys, by then we will have retired from our various volunteer organizations.

The rally is at Rice Ranch....southeast corner of the two major highways here. Just across the road from Gamblers RV store. Lots of buses/coaches here already, but room for more.

Mike (RedRider) is rallymaster. Boondocking here at Rice Ranch is $5 per nite. I think the rally fee is $20.

If/When you get here, we are in the 'front row'...an MCI7 with the Canadian Flag on the front.   Stop and say Hi!!
