ANOTHER WEEK IN QUARTZSITE, AZ

Life continues to roll along here in Quartzsite.  It was pretty quiet until just a few days ago but the pace has really picked up the past couple days.  Lots of people rolled in for the big RV show and some of them are pretty noisy.  One couple have a big toy hauler fifth wheel and they have it set up as a travelling stage.  They have a full scale karaoke set up with high quality speakers and put on hours of music Friday and Saturday evenings.  He plays guitar with the backup music and is an excellent singer. He is part of a Marty Robbins tribute band based in Phoenix.  His wife does great harmony with him but she's not as good on her own.  I think he said he had 18,000 songs in his machine and he took requests.
We continue to get out on walks morning and evening and we've had some great moonlit walks.  We did actually walk over to the RV show this morning but just looked at the outside displays as the tent was pretty busy.   I went over yesterday afternoon and was surprised how quiet it was, in fact the quietest opening day I've seen.
Our time is almost over here in Quartzsite.   We're thinking we will be heading back to Florence before the end of the week.     


Nope, not Mexico but at one of the flea markets here


Some of this warm weather gear comes in handy on cold desert nights


Bling hats.  There is a lot of bling type apparel in all the markets.



This is a very popular place all day.  I think some guys probably don't get past here.  There is live music most of the day.

Lots of really big 5th wheels to look through.  The closest one was $103,000.  Base price was only $58,000, the rest was options.

This was a regular 5th wheel with a front living room up over the hitch.  It felt like a real sanctuary up there.

We caught the sun coming up yesterday morning.

And the moon going down. 
We and the Jordan's attended the annual Canada potluck held at the large community auditorium.  There were 237 paid attendees plus volunteers.  Jim won one of the many door prizes given away.
