For the 7th year win a row we are headed out to the Q for some fun. We have consistently found that 2 days and nights at the Q are enough to see and do all we came for. This year we are going to start off at the Arizona Oasis in Ehrenburg right on the Colorado River for 4 days and nights of riding our Rzrs at the Ehrenburg Sand Bowl OHV area. It is just a mile away, we can ride right out of the RV park and being on the river is always a treat. I just put new Zbroz shocks on the Rzr and the ride improvement is awesome.

We will leave Thursday morning for the 4.5 hour drive to Ehrenburg and then head back to Quartzsite on Monday morning for our usual dry camp, 2 days/nights stay at Rice Ranch in the center of the Q. We'll meet our friends from San Diego in Ehrenburg and they will accompany us for what will be their first Quartzsite visit. Should be a hoot seeing the show through their first timer eyes. We have to return to Tucson on Wednesday as I have a meeting on Thursday in San Diego and will stay for a few days to take care of business and visit family and friends.

The weather looks good for the entire 11 day run and today will be spent prepping, shopping, fueling and loading for our next series of adventures.

Here is a shot of our site at Arizona oasis taken last October:

Enjoy your trip. Sounds like you will have a good time. I stayed in Quartzite a couple of times a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I stayed there about three months at a time and got involved in the local activities and affairs.

Captain.....have you seen all the sites at Quartzsite.....Camel Monument, played a round of golf, shooting range, book store with the old man and the banana hangar, fresh pie shop, half dozen flea markets, and of course, RZR trails and of course, the big tent.

We've been here since early November, the weather has turned great this year. I rode into Q yesterday and I have never seen so many people and traffic! It's going to be a bumper year in Q for RVers. dreamer.

I believe the old man with the banana hanger died.
