Quartzite MUD

Passed through Quartzite last week. Lots of mud out in the bush.....interesting that there is no MUD ALERT posted. Looked at NOAA web site and saw that there was an emergency warning for local storm conditions.....I watched some folks try to use there Jeep with a winch to tow the RV (39' DP) onto some road base......big mess.....what are local conditions now?

We did just have more rain in Q than is common for this time of year, however the sun is back out, and it is drying out fast.

Flash floods can happen in the desert but it doesn't take long to dry out. The whole area around Q-site you can easily find places to stay without driving in muddy washes, it's huge. I've camped over 30+ years in the So Cal deserts in the winter and been to Q-site many times and never had any problems with that. But always get out walk/drive toad and look over where you might want to park before driving your rig in. Without a doubt don't camp in any washes etc .

I once herd that December is their winter there. I bet in Jan It will be much better. Course the weather has been a little unusual in many areas.

RE: WASHS I always knew not to park in washs, thats why I was surprised that there so many rigs parked at HI JOLLY including us last year. Do you know if that area is a wash? Looked like a wash to me, but I thought it was ok to park there as there was a GG host and a whole lot of rigs there.

We had a three day slow, easy, rain that soaked in really well so there was mud even outside the washes. It seems to be pretty much back to hardpan now though.

Even when there was enough rain in the hills to fill washes like the one that runs though the edge of Bouse (end of Plomosa Road25 miles from Q) I have never seen Hi Jolly flooded. But that may depend on which side of the ridge the rain falls on.

mud is only a problem if you try to move before it dries_.
