We like Quartzsite but not in January while the big RV show is on, this year we had a couple of reasons to want to come here and share the desert with several hundred thousand RVers.
We had been trying to hook up with our friends Dianne and Tom since October, somehow life got in the way and last week was the time it worked for us and them.
Dianne and Tom were camping with their friends from the Escapee group Classless Class, the day we arrived two couple were putting on their Quesadilla and Margarita night.
We were invited to the campfire and enjoyed a quesadilla and a margarita complete with a salted rim. Everyone was so nice and made us feel very welcome.

We have never camped with a group before, but it was fine, even with our three dogs, Most of the couples had left by the end of the week. Unfortunately several people came down with cold/flu so we didn't see too much of them
Skip was really interested in the windscreen Tom had built, so Tom assembled it so Skip and Robbie
could have a look.
Skip and I attended the 2nd annual Bloggerfest in Quartzsite last Saturday. We were actually in town last year , but didn't attend mainly because it was too overwhelming for me. I get very nervous and uneasy in large groups of people. I regretted that decision for a whole year.
This year I was determined to attend and I tried to ignore the butterflies in my stomach. I really wanted to see Al and Kelly,and there were bloggers attending that I had met over the years. Plus I was hoping some of the people I had been reading for years would be there.

We are both so glad went. It was fun to see our old friends and meet new ones. We finally met Croft, who we was one of the first blogs we discovered, and Sue Malone who writes such an interesting account of her and her friend Mo's travels.

It's really awesome to be surrounded by so many people with the same love of south west and the RVing be it full time, part time or any time.
Thanks again George and Suzie for organizing and getting the word out about Bloggerfest.
