OK….So we’ve been to Quartzsite, Arizona a few times over the years. It’s an experience that we feel RVers should experience at least once in there adventures. Some people like to come year after year and make it a wintertime destination while others like to come once and they are done. When we go, we like to shop, eat and have lots of fun in the desert. With friends of course.
Because what’s Quartzsite without friends?
Certainly not as fun.
So we thought to ourselves, wouldn’t it be fun to have an Outside Our Bubble group? We could have everyone circle our RV’s and share adventurers we have all had on the road. Heck, we can have pot-luck dinners, movie nights and bon fires. Here is our last post on Quartzsite for more information… CLICK HERE
To the very first ever, Outside Our Bubble get-together, ever, and it will be in Quartzsite, AZ this coming January (2016).
The big RV show in Quartzsite, AZ is being held January 16-24, 2016 and that is the time everyone comes to Quartzsite. And remember, the show is FREE! (And so is parking in the desert.)
We plan on doing the OOB Meet-up: Thursday, January 14 through Sunday, January 17, 2016. We choose these dates based on it being right before the show opening weekend so we can, we hope, get a large enough space for the number of RV’s that care to come join us. Also note… Opening weekend at the show is really busy, so you may choose to say longer if you do not like crowds. We are NOT parked near the show itself as we like it less crazy.
We will be having movie nights on our big 11 foot by 9 foot outdoor movie screen, weather permitting of course.
We’ll be doing a pot luck dinner at least one night.
Bon fires and get togethers. (Please bring wood)
Quadcopter demos. Bring your own RC craft and join in on the flying fun.
Anyone that has a craft they’d like to share, maybe we can do that as well.
Oh, if you play a guitar or something, maybe we can do campfire music jams or sing alongs.
We park, in the free BLM area, on the northern side of Quartzsite. About 5 miles north on route 95 is Plomosa Road. Turn east onto Plomosa Rd (right if you are coming from Quartzsite, left from Parker). Then drive about 2 miles in and on the left hand side you will see our sign for the Outside Our Bubble group (near where the Montana 5th Wheelers meet). Turn left there and follow the road back to the Outside Our Bubble gathering.
Ok, Ok, here it is on Google Maps with the GPS location of where we will be. (we are in the desert, there is no “address”.)
Not sure what the Quartzsite, AZ Show is like? Well…here’s a video we shot last year at Quartzsite of the big RV show and tent event.
Here we are parked in the desert…
The tent event is free.
The parking around the tent event and where we park in the desert is free.
Make sure you fill your fresh water tank and have empty black and grey tanks when you arrive. If need be, there is a place in town to dump and get fresh water if you plan on staying longer or if need be.
We dare you to find us! (Ok, maybe not “dare” you, but come join the fun.)
When:Jan 14-17, 2016
Where:Quartzsite AZ – Plomosa Road – End of BLM camping area (Google Map of Location)
Why:Just for Kicks!
Bring:Firewood, Full Water Tank, Empty Gray and Black Tanks, Generator, snake bite kit (kidding) and Stories.
If looking to join us, please comment below. We will then build a mailing list from the comments (Please verify your address) and use that list to keep everyone updated as we try to figure this out. This is NOT a professionally produced get-together, it is just for fun and what it will be is what it will be. :)
Hope to see you there!
