All we needed to finish this ride off was a moonlit starry night, straw in the bed of the wagon pulled by the tractor and a cup of hot chocolate in our hands..Maybe a few snowflakes would perfect it also.
We walked, walked, walked and looked at everything there. Took a break at lunch time and had a Chile cheese dog and coke. Back to looking and walking afterwards. By the time we were thru 5 hours had gone buy. Got some great pictures tho. Met many nice people and saw a bunch of talent out there. Here's some pics of part of the Pow Wow...
Carved tree from an artist.
Here's a teardop trailer that they were using to store their good in. We were taller than the trailer...Sure wouldn't be a good thing to be full timing in.
After we got home, we were tired so we just had a fire in the evening, talked with a few neighbors and called it good.
Jan 27th--Today was DUMP day. Got the tank filled, drove to the dump station 3 miles away and saw the LINE. We only waited 1 hour and 15 minutes to dump. Guess everyone else had the same idea this morning. We viewed the Vietnam traveling wall that is in town for a spell. Quite a few people were turning up for the opening ceremony. We then had to take a trailer tire off, it was only flat on the bottom tho...No one in town was open to fix it, so Monday morning,,we'll get there before everyone else does. We stopped by Ron and Terry's place on the way home and talked with them a bit. They had happy hour going and they make some pretty good Margarita's!
We're roasting hot dogs on the camp fire tonight with good old pork and beans. Beautiful outside tonight... Stay happy and healthy and enjoy your weekend. Everyday's a weekend in Quartzsite!!

If you don't know, things are very busy here. Yesterday I went out to the Dome Rock area, about 7 miles west of here, to do some metal detecting for Gold and on the way back along the frontage road I got trapped in the traffic. It was a 1 hour and 45 min. trip for a 2 mile journey.
Previous to the prospecting trip I went to the Library, not to bad about 45 min., got some propane about a 45 min deal and got an onion for hamburger -bq about 45 min. Better be ready to stand in line and wait if you want to go or do anything in Quartzstie right now.......
Sandy made Taco's last night and this evening we -bq ed a steak, mashed potato's, carrots and pumpkin pie. Great Deal!!!!!!!!!!!
I worked with the BLM today and Sandy installed a new faucet in the kitchen sink, need to do a little more work on that one. There was an accident on Hwy. 95 North, a 35 mile an hour speed zone but the guy flipped his truck several times,,so hard to tell how fast he was going.
Sandy and I went to the "Big Tent" on Sunday and filled out several cards for prizes that they were giving away. While I was at work today Princess Cruises called and said that we had won a DVD Player, so Sandy went over and retrieved our prize....
We have some great new Neighbors from B.C. Canada. They came over for a visit this evening and we told them that we could help them in dumping and hauling water. Most of the information we learned from Ron & Terry at HitchIitch.com. "Some really great people" Go to their site for good information that will help you Boondock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is lots of fun and you can do it. There are lots of great people here in the Desert that that will help in any way that they can. Let us know if you need help or information and we will do our best to help..!

A rainy day here in the Desert South of Quartzsite.
Empty sewer and got water today. Everything here right now is wait your turn so nothing moves very fast. Had to get propane and another long line.
Have to do laundry so we must be at the laundry by 5 Sunday morning, Yuck!!!!!!!!!!!
Sandy went to Parker, AZ for groceries and I stayed home to do some business, pay bills, yuck. It has been raining most of the day and on Sandy's way back from Parker a speeder went around her. Well, down the road a couple miles the speeder must have hydroplaned and was nose down in the ditch with the top of the car up against the bank. Hope no one was hurt. The Highway Patrol was there but no ambulance yet.
The place is really filling up. We have been helping to check in campers and most seem to be staying for 2 weeks. Lot's of big shows the next 2 weeks.
The Honda Generator is a great deal. We only have it running for about 4 hours in the evening, about 1/2 gallon of gas per evening for our 110 use. During the day we use Solar and an Inverter. All is well so far.

Because we were both so tired, we opted to go to Otis's place to pick up a take and bake pizza. Too tired to cook!
We had a propane emergency today. It seemed like we were out of propane, but come to find out, we needed to replace both hoses and connections going into the tanks. They were'nt letting the propane out of the tanks to go into the trailer. Bob got that taken care of quickly. Good thing, otherwise we might be having cheese and crackers for supper.
But there is relief in sight,,,tomorrow we both have a day off.
We headed south out of Nebr. thru Colo. across NM and ended up in Quartzsite Az. on Nov 9th. We have been busy ever since.
Bob and I (Sandy) started working as part time camp hosts at La Posa North this week. The campers are really pouring in.
Quartzsite events are picking up so I'm sure we'll be busy.
This summer we will head to Wyoming to campground host.
Hope you follow our travels as we take on this big adventure.
