Clicking the pics, it's the thing to do, if you don't have anything else to do.
Back boondocking in Quartzsite again. It sure is good to be out in the desert around my own kind.
I left the Bluewater casino this morning, picked up some diesel fuel, even though I didn't need it. Then I stopped at Walmart while I was in town. It was only 35 miles to Quartzsite, where I pulled into the RV Pit-Stop and got a few gallons of water. The Pit-Stop was busy this morning, not as active as during the Big Show, but a lot more alive than when I left before Christmas.
And speaking of being busy, I pulled into McDonald's in Quartzsite, and cars were lined up at the drive-through, and when I went inside, the lines were so long that I left without any food. But that's okay. I have plenty of food in the Lance, but I was looking forward to something different.
I moseyed over to Dome Rock boondocking area, and again, it did appear there were more people at Dome Rock than when I was here before Christmas. Dome Rock is one of the prettier areas because it's kinda hilly and not flat like most of the boondocking areas. The downside is that you almost always have to level up your RV when boondocking at Dome Rock. And Dome Rock is a magnet for off-road folks, both motorcycle and 4 x 4's, but they don't bother me; they're mostly retired folks, and I like to see folks outside enjoying their life. I think I'll probably be here two or three days before I shamble on down to Yuma.
It's good to be in the desert again, where everybody has room to spread out. While I love Lake Havasu, the area where I enjoy staying the most was very crowded when I was there and was pretty much the same as staying at the Bluewater casino boondocking areas.
But Quartzsite is different; there's so much room here there's always plenty of space to spread out, and the closest it comes to being crowded is during the Big Show in January, and even then if you don't mind getting half a mile off the main roads, there's still plenty of room.
Dome rock boondocking area, if you click the pics you can see a lot of RVs boondocking out there.
Boondocking in the desert, Quartzsite Arizona
This is a Schoolie that I took a picture of this morning as I was leaving Bluewater casino. There's something about it that doesn't look like a normal school bus but I'm not sure what it is. But it does have a Krackin crawling out of the water trying to grab the driver.
You don't see this every day, a gas station that sells hundred octane racing fuel, which costs a pretty penny. This is in Parker Arizona, and Parker is a hot-bed of off-road racing. A lot of big time professional desert racing starts in Parker.
