The End & The Beginning

We closed another chapter at our Quartzsite Rally.  We left friends and headed toward Congress, AZ, North Ranch, an Escapees Rainbow Park.  DSC_0013

It was about 100 plus miles and the 43’ Dutch Star did very well.  We arrived and got a full hook up (30 AMP).  DSC_0005 

We had dinner with Frank/Sharon, Neil/Pat and Denny & Susie at their place.  We had smoked pulled pork for some odd reason.  then went to the ice cream social here at the park.  It was great. 

Then sun set……………..nothing need to be said….DSC_0010

See ya………

Oh What A Day

We started off with pastries by the fire first.   DSC_0021

Then Bob & Molly fixed biscuits & gravy. DSC_0024 DSC_0016

Then people disappeared into the madness of the city to see what they could live without.

Then it was towards evening that things started to rock & roll.  A huge potluck dinner featuring my smoked pull pork.  The guys served the ladies first.


The guys are in the ready….DSC_0033

Nice blue hats!!!!DSC_0035 DSC_0037 DSC_0038

Then we gave away fun prizes.DSC_0043

People really got excited and showed off their pom poms.DSC_0044

DSC_0022 Yes, we had a LARGE fire…….DSC_0056 DSC_0057 DSC_0058 DSC_0062 DSC_0066 DSC_0067

I’m wearing who’s hat?DSC_0068 DSC_0054



The fire dims and memories are growing of the good time that was had here at Quartzsite. 

We just gave the people an opportunity to have a good time and they all took advantage of it I believe.

It’s been a great time here…….

Thank you all for giving us the opportunity to have fun with you…….and see ya down the road.

Mark being so kind and an expert, he was kept busy.

And that went on for a couple of days – people working at their rigs and looking at others.

See ya………..

A bunch of us went to Sally Al’s to do our annual celebration of birthdays to include Carol’s & Walt’s.  Fun was had by all.  Cameras and drinking in a bar are not a good combination so no pictures were taken by me.  Here’s Denny & Mark afterwards trying to decide if that had too much or not enough.  They drank one more then went to bed like old men do.DSC_0052

Oh we are starting to get arrivals for our little shindig.  Guess it’s time to put out the cones tomorrow.

See ya……………
