(CLICK HERE to see post from last OOBerfest) So below is who, what, & where as it stands now so you can make plans to attend and become an “OOBie” if not already one from last year. For as you may know, we love our OOBies! Don’t worry, the induction ceremony is painless. (for the most part.)

GATHERING INFORMATION – Last Updated 12/21/2016

Thursday, January 19th – Arrival Day

* Arrive when you can today. Yippee! (Brenda and I will be arriving on the 16th to try to block off desert space. Special thanks again to Dave for helping last year.)
* We will try to arrange the coaches and RV’s, facing inwards along two lines. As you arrive and turn off into the desert, just look for our logo (8×10 paper signs) to make your way back to our group area and see one of us, or other volunteers (hint), for where you should park.
* 5:00PM – OOB Attendees Introductions and meet your hosts David and Brenda and ask the questions you may have for us.
* 7:00PM – Bonfire where you again can meet other OOB attendees and learn what the RV show is like and what to expect. Also tips and tricks on how to conserve RV resources in the desert. Please bring in some firewood to help out with our fires or we will be kind of cold.

Friday, January 20th

* 9:00AM – Coffee & Donuts chat at the campfire area. Grab your favorite mug filled with your coffee, tea or liquor of choice and join us for a donut and chat with fellow RV’ers.
* 10:00 to 11:30 –Tires and Weight – With so many common amenities it’s easy to overload your RV without even knowing it. Join Steve Kass as he discusses weight and tire safety. You can even set a time to get your RV weighed!
* 12:00 to 1:30 – Tech Talks – Have questions, we may have an answer or at least an opinion. After all, RV’ers help RV’ers so come join in on the questions on any topic for RV’ing and also help with the answers around the fire ring.

* 2:00 to 3:30 – Upgrades and Mods Chat! – Have you made some cool mods to your coach or RV that you think others also may like to do? This is the time to share your mods with others. If you are then interested in a mod someone did, set a time to go visit and see how it was done!
* 4:00 to 5:00 – UAV’s and the Art of Movie Making – Interesting topic by one of the few currently FAA licensed video UAV pilots.  From movies to TV shows, see hows it is done and hear some stories.
* 7:00PM – Movie Night! Come join us for a movie under the stars. (Movie yet to be determined.)

* Bonfire!!!  (Again, please bring wood to help out.)

 

Saturday, January 21st

* The Big RV Show opens. If you have never attended the show before, be prepared for a crazy time of people, food, and of course products of all sorts. From full motor coaches to replacement valve stems, you will find it at Quartzsite.  Drive into town and make a day of it. Of course, feel free to go along with other OOB members that you have met to team up and car pool.
* 5:00PM – Pot Luck Dinner. Bring a dish to add to the table. (which reminds me, bring tables.) No idea what we may end up with, but that’s the fun of a pot luck. So grab your drink, plate, utensils, and chair and eat up. (We ask that food be placed at least by 4:50PM)
* 7:00PM – Bonfire CampJam with Special Guests Scott and Thomas… Notes from Neptune!

Sunday, January 22nd

* The RV Show continues and so does your shopping. :)
* This is also departure day, if you so choose, as we have nothing planned other than a campfire. We do know most will stay till Monday for who really wants to leave after a day of shopping. :)
* Bonfire!!!  For anyone still around or that is not too tired from all that shopping.

ATTENTION FIRST TIMERS TO QUARTZSITE:

Ok, a quick few things. First…What you bring into the desert, you will bring out. Leave no footprint. When you arrive, you will need to check in with the BLM Host right when you turn on to Plomosa road. (No charge) Then you will head further down to road to find us.

You will be in the desert and will have NO HOOKUPS! Therefore you will need to be sure to have a full water tank and empty black and gray tanks. You should also have fuel for your generator. If you do not have a generator or enough solar panels to run your coach, this really is not for you as you will need power as well as heat. So conserving is the key, so bring and use paper plates, plasticware, and cups. Things that do not require washing! We will go over some tricks as to how you can conserve the first evening.

Be sure you have fuel in your tanks for the generator and heat! (Propane/Diesel/Gas) 

There is a service in town called the “Pit Stop” where they will empty your tanks and fill your water with good water. They can also fill your propane tanks.

Even though there is a SMALL grocery store in town, it is not cheap. So bring in any food you will want. There are also a few restaurants.

For trash there is a local dump right down the road as you go into town with limited hours. Best thing is to use larger garbage bags and when needed, drop it off on the way into town.

Other than that GOOD LUCK! :)

    Woohoo! Highlight of my day! Thought about you and Brenda (now I must have an InstaPot) when I used my new Dyson to vacuum vents this morning. Looking forward to seeing both of you again in January!

  2. Martha & Mitch

    Mitch and I plan to attend again this year. We will be in our travel trailer again. My brother and sister-in-law (Bill & Dory) also plan to attend. Looking forward to it!

  3. Andy & Margo

    Hey David and Brenda,

    We had a great time last year and are looking forward to joining you guys again in Quartzsite!

    It was fun meeting you guys and we can’t wait to spend time with you and everyone again. OK we will buy our own T-shirts this time…LOL

    Hi everyone, we wanted to attend last year but the date did not work for us.

      Took me forever to figure out what you bought on the blog. Can’t wait to see the new rig! Guess my old girl is now the oldest of the bunch from last year (unless anyone has one older than a 1996). Thought about trading her in after the oopsie this last spring, but decided I love her too much. Have spent the summer redoing the interior and updating some other stuff. Hope to see y’all in Q!

  5. Mike and Cathy Paddack

    Mike and Cathy will join you this year! Our first RV adventure was in Quartzsite when we bought our rig January 2014, but looking forward to our first OOBerFest :)

  6. Walter $

    Would love to attend, sounds like a great time and we only need to drive a few mile for this big event Lol we’re in Yuma now for a few months . Can’t seem to find where to leave our RSVP . Thanks Walt & Pam

  7. Tim Morrison

    We would love to attend, please add us to your list. We’re heading down to Quartzsite early and can help save the site. Just let us know. Tim and Cathy

  8. Sue

    Hi Guy and I would like to attend on Sat night if possible. We are at the Scenic Rd RV Park and will drive out there! If this is not possible let me
    Know, we will bring something to share for the
    Potluck! Thanks Sue

          Seeing that is the last day of the event…yes a little late. :) But you can feel free to come on by as most people leave a few days after.

            1. David.B Post author

              That evening is the Pot Luck dinner and also the live music. So that will be fun even though you would have missed the talks on Friday. Note, not sure where you will be able to be parked…but you get that. :) Glad you like the videos…we are running out of things to talk about and may have to start a weekly live talk show answering submitted questions.
