Quartzsite and BloggerFest

Yuma, Arizona        High 73 Low 48

The weather continues to be ideal.

Friday night the Park put on a meal for all the volunteers that help out at this Park. There were a lot of people there and the food ,which had a Mexican theme, was very good.
I managed to get some pictures of the sunrise after which we set out to Quartzsite. We are about an hour and a half away and had a pleasant drive.

I should mention that Penny is doing a lot better than she was Thursday and she went to Quartzsite with us. We have noticed that she seems to want to be near us more than before her surgery.

Our first stop was the big tent and we were able to get good parking because we were there right after they opened. Even so, there were still lots of people going through and some buying stuff. I’m still not sure what some of it has to do with RVing, but it seems there are a lot of those type vendors at the show.
On our way out we looked at some of the new fifth wheels and motor homes. Some are quite nice and some had things that we didn’t like. And no, we are not ready to trade in our Montana. We looked at one large, 45 foot, motor home that had a price tag on it for $450,000 and was marked down for the show to a mere $400,00. It seemed that some of the RVs were selling though.

By then it was time to go to BloggerFest. We found the spot very easily from George’s directions and signs. We didn’t get an exact count of the people there, but at least 50 showed up. There was a lot of visiting and meeting new friends and reacquainting with old friends. I won’t try to name them all, but will leave that to George. We did meet some bloggers that up till then we had only read their posts. It’s always fun to put a face to a name.

I think a good time was had by all and the time flew by and soon it was time to leave.

I invited Al and Kelly to stop and say hello when they get to Yuma and hope they take us up on it. We hadn’t seen them for a couple of years. We didn’t make it to BloggerFest last year, but were glad we went this year.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Sounds like everyone had a good time. Love your sunrise photo.

    When we went through the big tent last year we thought that there was a lot that didn't seem to have anything to do with RVing as well. In fact we were quite disappointed with the show. We thought some of the big RV manufacturers themselves would have had some kind of presence there but it was not to be. Also thought there would have been RV parts dealers at the show.

  2. Thanks again for picking up the items in Yuma.
