Quartzsite TRVN Rally – Post #2

Thursday was our third full day in Quartzsite, and until today, the weather was just short of perfect.  Today, it was very windy, and with the temperature being a few degrees cooler, it felt much colder.  However, it was still a nice day.  When the day started, we had 14 rigs in the main circle, and another one in the back.   2011  TRVN Q Rally 0012011  TRVN Q Rally 004 2011  TRVN Q Rally 005

Today, ten more rigs showed up, giving us a total of 20 in the main circle, and another five parked out back (by choice). 

We also have Sue Didelot at the rally.  Sue makes personalized windshield signs (click on her name for a website with examples of her signs) for RV’ers, and she had been busy with this group.  Here are two new signs that she painted yesterday….

Here is a picture of Robert and Tiz Ruff (happy customers) with their new sign ( if you look closely, you will see their two dogs in the windshield)…..

Our friends Chuck and Lorraine North arrived today.  We first met them in Quartzsite three years ago, and they stopped by our house this past spring.  Here is a picture of Patsy and Lorraine with Chuck in the background…

Here’s a picture of the twenty rigs beginning to form the circle.  I am having to walk a ways to get them all in the photo…..

We also have a couple of what are called SOB’s (Some Other Brand).  One of the rigs is a Fleetwood American Tradition, which I am told is a $700K range rig, and it is parked next to our Bus.  It comes complete with purple lights underneath that gives us a strange glow of color through our windows at night.

We also had another campfire in the center fo the circle tonight.  Here is my best attempts to capture it as a photo……

That’s it for today.  There will probably be about 15 more rigs showing up tomorrow.
