Black Friday, Nov. 26th, Quartzsite AZ

Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer, 
 since August 2006

No Black Friday shopping here, no chain stores, Walmarts or the likes just another day of already great bargains in Quartzsite

makes ya feel wanted yes!
      Well we are here and wanted in the town of Quartzsite. With a summer population of about 3,200 this small desert community turns into a metropolis of tents, motorhomes, and trailers, with as many as 2 million or more visitors every winter.

home dirt  
      There is over 70 RV parks in town and thousands of Acres of BLM land (Bureau of Land Management) surrounding the town where you can camp free or $40.00 for two weeks (this gives you access to water, sewer and garbage disposal). Three small grocery stores, lotsa restaurants, many solar panel dealers and vendors selling everything from RV's, and rv accessories, clothes, dented canned goods, to rocks and gems.

      After all this shopping and exploring, back to home dirt so we could relax in the sun, read a bit and enjoy the Arizona sunshine. After a while we decided to go to the Grubstake Bar and Grill for their friday all-you-can eat fish and chip special and of course the afternoon Happy Hour as well.
many Happy Hours
can't put an empty glass on the table
      At 3:00pm the place was pretty well full, we ordered a 1/2 price pitcher and got a full pitcher and two half full glasses. Asking why? our waitress says the boss told us to never put an empty glass on the table. I ordered the fish special that came with two monster pieces of cooked to order lightly battered fish, coleslaw, and a mountain of fries. I didn't have too many fries and took some of the batter off the fish so that I could have a third tasty piece. (no sharing and no doggie bags with this special), Suzie had a craving for the coconut shrimp that were equally huge tasty and freshly prepared.
this was my third and final piece of fish

      Now with our tummies full, back once again to home dirt, read and a walkabout while the sun was shining, and then inside as cool night air descended upon us. Cozy warm inside we read and computed a bit more then a couple of our favourite tv shows.
