Airstream at Organ Pipe National Monument

From the desert to the desert

Last night I totally didn’t post a thing.  Ah, such is life…it happens.

Monday the Airstream made it over to Quartzsite, AZ.  I had been planning to talk with a well known figure in the RV industry about what I’m trying to do, and he was in Quartzsite for a few days.  Fortunately with the quick repair to the Titan I made it.

Quartzsite is a place I’m pretty familiar with.  Every winter it fills with “snow birds”, BLM camping and LTVA’s are everywhere.  Basically, you can pull into the surrounding desert and stay for a long time on the cheap.  It’s also the home of a huge gem and mineral show, and a massive swap meet.  Bottom line?  Like a carnival without the rides.  Oh, and it’s pretty darned dusty there.

Driving into Quartzsite is an experience this time of year.  HUGE Class A motorhomes everywhere.  Navigating a gas station there is an exercise in risk taking.  One wrong move and your little Airstream could get crushed between two diesel powered behemoths.


Not Quartzsite

Quartzsite was a one night stay.  Just not for me at present.  Maybe at some point when I find swap meets more fun than I do currently….  🙂

So, there’s the wrap.  Currently along the Colorado River still enjoying warmer temperatures then the East Coast is experiencing.  I like wearing shorts in January.

Tomorrow moving on to another campsite.  And yes, from Borrego’s Desert to Arizona’s Desert.  There are Saguaros here you know…..

  1. So, you’re back out west again? Last I heard you went back east for an engineering position. What are you doing these days?
