Amazing to think that it is one year since we came here to Quartzsite, AZ to meet up with fellow Escapee RV Club members. Since we became fulltimers in 2012, we are part of the Class of 2012, but there were just two couples of us from that class that joined in with a group of 2008-09 classmates, a sprinkling of other years, and a new group grew out of that gathering to be the Classless Class. Yes, lots of joking about that name!
Last year was also the year we traded in our truck and trailer and moved into a motorhome while here at Quartzsite. No regrets about that!!! We have loved this change, and I especially love riding in the passenger seat of the MH as we tow our car. (Becky, so will you!!!)
So, we are gathered again with rv friends at La Posa South BLM area… some we have seen here and there throughout the past year, some we had not seen since last year, some not parked here but joining in now and then, and others that we had not met until now. A great group! But, alas, there are some that we got to know last year that are traveling elsewhere right now… Lynn and Roger, Tina and Jeff… you are missed!!!
Now, to backtrack a bit… ushering in the new year while doing our solar installation in the desert west of Yuma, AZ was a great time in a beautiful area! We truly loved the Ogilby Road - American Girl Mine Road location we were at! A wonderful boondocking place that we will certainly return to!!! Had good times with friends Alice and Robbie… a trip across the border to Los Algodones for lunch and shopping (yeah, I know $10 was too much to pay for that purse!), and a prime rib dinner at a stateside casino were great!
Look forward to seeing you both again soon!!!
While in the Yuma area, we also visited with Toni & Doug, Sandie & Jim and Jan & Bill. Toni & Doug hosted a nice potluck and fireside gathering one evening, and another day six of us went across the border once again… Tom and I got our teeth cleaned, and some of the others had crowns and various work done. In spite of their more extensive dental work, we all still enjoyed a good day together and tasty lunch.
Also, had a couple of visits with Denise, and enjoyed dinner with her at the casino…more chats in our future, Denise! Always fun to visit and share with you!!!
We arrived in Quartzsite last week and enjoyed some time in the Plomosa Road BLM area before moving here to join our group. While there, Karen & Bob arrived and parked near by… so fun to get to know you two special people more!!! The four of us went to town one day and poked around the vendor booths. Also, had a campfire gathering at their place one evening, and Shoko and Harry joined in… fun time.
So, now we are here with our Classless Class group and enjoying time with these friends. The following are a photo of our “compound” with just two rigs here, and another as the space is filling in. Photo taken from our rig roof!
And, great to have Denise pop by for a visit, as well as Karen and Bob!!!
Many good visits for the next week or so… campfire gatherings, potlucks, happy hours, walks, shopping and excursions… you name it! Then we will each head out in different directions and REST, ever grateful for good times with RV friends!
Be well! Dianne & Tom
