We got here in Oct. It seemed like a lot of the people who come every year were coming back early due to the weather. The venders seem to be down tho. I work at Silly's and got called back in Oct. instead of Nov.

That was last year. Wait until you see what the "city" of Quartzsite has done through higher taxes this year. I'm not going to tell you. I am waiting to see what happens when everybody learns the hard way. Fewer vendors every year due to taxes & regulation, now outrageous fees for dumping. This is getting ugly.

So don't keep us in suspense; inquiring minds want to know!

Realize that I don't go to Q unless I have to for shopping, so this is second hand and could be wrong. A few weeks ago I was told $15 at the Pit Stop for dump & water this year. Then last week somebody who was in shock told me that they had raised it to $20 . The Pit Stop told him it is out of their hands and blamed the City. Some people have to dump once a week ($80 a month!) I don't know what their intention is, but I know what the results will be.
Like I said, this is going to get ugly.
