After Yuma, I moved up to Quartzsite for my favorite gathering of the year. Why is it my favorite? Because I get to see a lot of my old friends that I haven't seen for a while, and I get to make lots of new friends!
The main reason that people come here in January is to go to the big RV show in the Big Tent. I went, but I forgot to take any pictures. Instead, I took pictures of the Gem and Mineral Show, which goes on at the same time.
And in Tyson Wells, next to the Big Tent, there are lots of other vendors. This one wasn't too popular...
And this one was definitely the weirdest!
The WINs had lots of activities planned. This is just a small part of the 2 weeks that we were there.
Each of the 3 singles groups- WINs, Solos and LOWs,- invite the other singles to an activity. We had our usual ice cream social. The ice cream was a little late arriving, so we did a little flash mob thing, where I got to play my ukulele.
The Solos had a dance, with pizza, and the LOWs had a band with wine and cheese. All of them were great fun!
Later in the week, our own Paul Martin put on a concert for us.
A short video of him and his "band."
Then another evening, we had our own dance, with our brand new music system.
And on another late afternoon, Andy hosted The Dating Game. There was a lot of laughter involved.
My solar regulator was acting a little strange, so I went to Discount Solar in town to buy a new one, and have them install it. When they came to my rig to look at where it would go, they said they could fix my old one by installing a new switch. WOW! I'm one happy camper!
One day, Paul took us on another 4-wheel drive trip.
This time we went out to look for some old mines.
Looks like it must have been a copper mine!
The hummingbirds are just as friendly here as they are in Yuma.
