Montana Circle

Quartzsite, Arizona  High 72 Low 43

We left Earp at about 11:00. We only had about a fifty minute drive. We found the Montana Owners Circle with no problem. We did have to stop at the BLM check in place, which gives us 2 weeks of free camping. The people at the Circle asked us where we would like to park. I asked for north or south facing, which gives me the best sunlight for our solar charging. We are a day early, so there was no problem accommodating us. We are about 8 miles from Quartzsite.

After we got all settled in, we went into town to see if there was anything going on. There didn't seem to be too many people here yet, but we are still early for the RV show, which doesn't start till next Saturday.

When we got back to the circle, it was just in time for Happy Hour. They had snacks and everyone here just seemed to mingle, renewing old friendships, and making new. After the snacks, they started a fire, and a few of the men stood around the fire talking (BS ing). I did find out there is an app for Passport America, which looks a lot handier to use than the book, so I downloaded it. I will try it out later.

Only about half the rigs they are expecting are here, but the get together doesn't actually start till tomorrow. We noticed a lot of signs for different Escapee groups along the way here. Even though there didn't seem to be much going on in town, there are still a lot of RVs camping out here.

I think most of the people here have generators, rather than solar, so right now it is a little noisy.

Thanks for visiting.
