Our Awesome Travels
Taken In Quartzsite Arizona Dec 7th 2015

Friday, January 23, 2015

Blogger Fest this Saturday in Quartzsite Arizona, if you arearound drop on by, even if you are not a blogger.

Where are we today ?
           If you are in the area near Quartzite Arizona and want to have a fun couple of hours meeting some fellow Rv'er's and Bloggers this would be the place to go. Only 2 hours out of your day and guaranteed you will meet a lot of fun people. Just check out the information below, Jeri has pulled this together so beautifully. We were looking forward to this first time event but life kinda took us away at the last minute. Would be so nice to meet fellow rv'ers and bloggers that we have followed for many years and a lot we have never met in person. Hopefully next year, Quartzsite will always be there.

         I took the directions right form Jeri's posting on the Just Wanderin' Blog and copied them below.

             Now for my day nothing really exciting, but I am the designated Go-fer. Ya know go for this go this go for for that. I just do what needs to be done. Pack a few boxes here, wash some knick knacks, a couple trips to Stratford, pick up empty boxes, few things at the store, make lunches and whip up supper. House Husband, me thinks, but does keep me busy and my mind off of the warm southern climates.
    has not snowed for a while and good thing
    still lotsa snow banks here
    Punkeydoodles Corners looks much nicer in the summer
            Chores done now I can have fun making supper. Grill some very tasty farmers sausage on our Weber Q, and a pan of sauerkraut. Added that to a tasty salad and pan fried potatoes for her Dad.
    sure do love our Weber Q
    yep was sure tasty
            Thanks again for stopping by and for those in Quartzsite, please take lotsa pictures so that we can feel like we were almost there.

    5. The problem is the skytrack fork lift must have been picked up sometime yesterday afternoon and is gone from this corner now..... But our corner is the last place where you can turn into the BLM campground... After us there is no more camping on this road, that I know of... There are smaller signs advertising SKP chapters 6 and 21 which are next door to us so that is the right place to turn in.....

    6. Yup, Punky Doodles Corner sure brings back memories for me. Used to be around that big curve twice a day on a school bus when attending Waterloo-Oxford high school back in the early 60's. Rolled a rent-a-car over on that curve one Saturday afternoon in the early 70's. I think the car had too much to drink.............
