Quartzsite outing

We are staying in the Quartzsite area for 2 week for 3 different rallys.
First we stayed with the SKP Elks then to our RVForum.net rally and last the SKP Geocachers.
Yesterday we went on a 4x4 run with 10 vehciles including Jeeps & misc 4x4 vehicles with our 1973 VW beetle.

Some in the group including the leader told me they thought we could do all of the run but would have to be pulled up one of the tougher climbs. Well we proved they all wrong we made the entire rum underour own power. It did take me a coupleof tries to get up one climb but we made it & I was told the front 2 tires got airborne over the last part.

Here is what one of the folks on the 4x4 run wrote.

In the ride photos you can't miss that little yellow bug. Proof that a VW bug can go four-wheeling!! Jerry and I were with the tailgunners, the Weimerts. We were sitting at the bottom of "Jim's transmission hill" watching what was happening at the top of the trail and listening to Betty "spot" for Mike over the CB. At one point it looked to us as though the bug was going to tip over backwards and there was an audible sucking in of breath by both Barb and me. I had sweaty palms just watching and knew Wendy probably had her eyes closed watching from above. Anyway you can bet that Mike provided the most excitement for the day. Can a VW bug go on 4WD trails? You betcha!!

Mike
