Thanks, Tank
There are no "hook ups"... In the BLM "pay areas ($40 for 2 weeks)" there are community dumps and water - the lines to use them are several hours long during fri, sat, sun & Monday of first weekend.
Not sure how many "pay areas" there are but each has a paved "spine road".... We use LaPosa South which is 3-4 miles south of the big tent on Hwy 95

If you stay at a common BLM site are there (for pay) roaming septic and water delivery services available?

We go to Glamis also. We just missed the Veterans Day celebration this past weekend put on by glamisdunes.com. Great flag pole presentation for the Veterans, and changing of the flag. Then in wash 22 a party to celebrate the Marines birthday. Just a great time.

We're gonna take our 4 seat sand car, it's Harley orange, and it'll have an American flag flying on the 6 ft whip.

Maybe we'll run across each other!!! Tank

You'll need a "special license" to do ANY commercial work on BLM land...

Plans have changed again, still going to Quartzsite. We have reservation's @ Quail Run RV Resort. First time sno-birds
Suppose to be "very" close to all the action.
We plan on going to Lake Havasu For awhile depending on weather.
Good Luck getting Reservations I made mine about a month or so ago. Maybe ask if they can put you on a cancel list.
Happy Holiday's

We're going to boondock it too. I'm not sure where, but I'm still planning to go, with the enclosed trailer, and the sand car for motivation around town.
