My new neighborhood at La Posa West Quartzsite Arizona
My new Boondocking site at La Posa West LTVA
This morning I moved over to the La Posa West LTVA area and paid $40 for a 2 week stay. Then I drove down to La Posa South LTVA to dump my holding tanks and fill up with water, which was all free since I've paid to stay at the LTVA. I got there just at the right time there was only 2 people ahead of me at the dump site so I was able to dump and fill up with water in less than half an hour. But when I left there must've been 15 RVs in line so those folks might be there a couple of hours, which isn't all that bad when you consider that there sitting in their homes and can watch TV while they wait.
So now I am ensconced at La Posa West which is the most crowded LTVA, because it's the closest one to town. I don't like the crowds But I was hoping I might be able to pick up some free Wi-Fi signals being this close to Quartzsite but so far that hasn't worked so I'm back to using my Verizon hotspot again.
This is the first time I've stayed at an LTVA and it has a whole different feel than the free BLM areas. This actually has a more homey feel, most of the people here are going to be here for several months and they consider this their winter home. So they kind of fix their campsites up, they put out flowerpots, they rearrange the rocks, they might have a 55 gallon water tank sitting outside that they can fill up there RV from, and in general try to make their site feel like home. A lot of the folks here seem to know each other, but then again maybe not, RVers are usually friendly and gregarious folk and talk to strangers like they were old friends so it's hard to tell if these people know each other or not. So if you're someone who likes to get to know people then there's no excuse for not having someone to talk to at an LTVA. But if you're a loner like me, just park over in a corner somewhere where there's not many people and everyone will leave you alone.
