Every January hordes of RVers land in this small town out in the middle of the desert. We had plans on joining them but with Jim’s surgery, we’ve had to once again change our plans.
We were going to meet up with about 30 other rigs – members of the Escapees Classes of 2005 through 2014 or beyond. The classes are gathering the middle of January and it will be party time.
Since we can’t be there at that time, we are going to pack up and head over probably the 27th of December and stay until the 7th of January. We won’t get to see everyone but there are going to be several people gathered early that we can join up with. That way I get my Q fix and we’re back in time for Jim’s surgery. I can hardly wait.
I had also hoped we could meet up with the Montana Owners Club that holds a Rally out at Q during this time. That’s not going to happen either. This is a picture of their 2011 gathering.
Karen asked about Aunt Happy’s eye doctor. Dr. Wendy Wooten has been named one of the top ten eye doctor’s in Phoenix and has numerous awards. Everyone that we have talked to that has gone to her has been more than pleased with the results. I wish I knew what had gone wrong but maybe on Wednesday I can find out some additional information. But Aunt Happy’s positive outlook sure is amazing.
Jerry – it was definitely Big Ed and Alice. We’ll see them again at the next Chapter luncheon and I’ll be sure to tell them hi.
I want to thank all of you for all the wonderful comments and well wishes for both Aunt Happy and Jim. It sure does gladden our hearts.
Because we’ve been on the go so much, the girls have been very lonely. So the minute I sit down, this is what my lap looks like.
Have fun at "Q"! It will be a good diversion for you. How did you get that incredible photo of the rally?ReplyDelete
Well, I know we'll certainly see you in Q.ReplyDelete
I just drove over to Q for a day to look around. I can't imagine being there when it's packed with RV's. So please take lots of photos when you go.ReplyDelete
Good luck Jim! This getting old stuff is for the pitts, but lets hope for good results and less pain!ReplyDelete
Ahh....the babies look so cute. Are you guys going to line up in a circle like that?ReplyDelete
That covered wagon--oops, I mean RV--circle looks mighty fine, and looks like it protected all the rigs from attack--from other RVers!ReplyDelete
We love Quartzsite and looks like you all do too! Hope the surgery goes well.ReplyDelete
Donna doesn't think she would enjoy boondocking in the desert, She says she has to have places to see things. Me & Rigg's would be content with a nice run int the desert. Be safe out there. Sm & Donna....ReplyDelete
WOW..that Montana circle took some doing. Wonder how the circle turned out so perfect????ReplyDelete
Enjoy Q..wish we could be there!
Are you floks going to try to stop by the cheaprvliving Rubber Tramp Renezvous in Quartzite? Here is the site with the expected coordinents.ReplyDelete
That rv circle sure was perfect. Someone must have directed everyone as to where to park. Glad you're getting to go to "Q" for a little while at least.ReplyDelete
You will see us.ReplyDelete
At first I liked the Montana circle but they are so close together - nah! I think we should do clusters.
Jim you will get our "Good Lucks" in person with plenty of hugs (soft hugs).
I'm just trying to imagine what it would sound like when all those RV's in that huge circle fired up their generators? Impressive pic!!ReplyDelete
You all are in our prayers. Enjoy Q. It's good to "hear" your voice again.ReplyDelete
We have been to Quartsite several times but no during the rallies. Not sure we would like all the crowds.ReplyDelete
Good morning Sandie......We went to Quartsite last February for a rally.....I have to tell you....I'm still not sure what all the hoop la is about.....parking in all the dirt and dust. We had fun though at the huge flea market and meeting all the folks who attended. Once was enough....though. LOL LOLReplyDelete
Sandie, That sure was an amazing pic of all the rigs parked perfectly in a circle.ReplyDelete
I have the dates written down and will definitely be back there while you guys are there.
love the picture of all the rigs in a perfect circle!!!..now how long did that take?ReplyDelete
Nice to see that you will still have a chance to spend a few days in Quartzsite. I liked the picture of all the rigs in that circle. The girls look so adorable.ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy "Q"... love the picture of the circled wagons!ReplyDelete
Quartzite is something we have yet to experience. It looks like fun. Maybe next year, but not sure.ReplyDelete
we'll be in the Phoenix area in February, so I am hoping we'll be able to meet up with you guys then!ReplyDelete
we actually switched to Phoenix doctors since we figure we might be there every winter.
