Time to BUMP this thread!

It is looking like I may be able to head on out to Quartzsite and Quartzfest this coming winter....If so, my target time frame is late January and into early February.

I missed it for 2020, weird year all around, but hopefully 2021 will be a better year for ALL of us.

Anyone else that might be interested, let us know!

I gave Vladimir a carb overhaul since last year. He's running great.
I'm hoping to make it around the first or second week of Feb.

Sorry to say that I can't make it this year, but I believe Mr Cob is there somewhere....possibly in LaPosa South....look for a purple and white Peterbilt tractor and a large 5th wheel attached. I don't know if he brought his Ural or not...but he likely has his blue colored CanAm desert toy....

I know it's way too early to make definite plans to make the Quartzsite rendevous, but I am really wanting to go to the gathering in the desert this coming winter...last two weeks of January is the target time frame for me.

Anyone else gonna go?

Hey...ok cool.

I'm thinking I should be able to make it this coming January...I will not have a Ural there but I will have something to ride around on! I plan on camping on BLM land...which is free, primitive camping. It's about 5 miles south of Quartzsite. My plan is to arrive at La Paz Valley Road (Roadrunner Camping Area) on or about the 18th-20th...more or less...give or take a day or two.

The big Quartzsite RV show starts on the 22nd so I want to be settled in a few days before that huge event begins in earnest.

Since winter in the Rockies can be unpredictable, and I have to cross the Rockies on the way, in mid January....my plans may vary depending on road conditions along the route. But that's what makes it fun, right?

Hopefully it will be dry and cool...not icy cold, snowy, windy, and blustery! We will see what we will see!
