At least I could use a camp shower outside without filling my grey water tank. I don't know if I could use one of those "shower tents" and a camp shower outside at La Posa since the water goes on the ground.

How is the availability of RV supplies at QS? Just wondering if I should buy an extra supply of my toilet chem before I get there. Maybe I should anyway since prices may be a lot higher there. I use the 8oz liquid of Campa Chem. Per oz, it's no more expensive than the big single bottles. Since it takes 8oz for my toilet, I just dump it all in and rinse out the bottle into the bowl to get as much of it out as I'm filling it up with fresh water.

I have already stocked up my pantry as full as I can get it with some canned and boxed foods that only need water and/or mixed up powdered milk to cook. I'm working on eating up the contents of my 120v only dorm fridge in the meantime. (Kind of wish i had kept that half way cooling Dometic, maybe it was just the extreme summer heat that it hated..)

No problem with getting RV supplies in Quartzsite, you can even find good prices. There is a Walmart in Parker, 30 miles north on 95. There are three grocery stores and a produce store in a tent. There is also a dollar store that has groceries and produce.

We pulled into Q'site yesterday afternoon and are staying at the Desert Gardens. It's not the prettiest place we have ever stayed, but by far, not the worst. The price for a month is $225 + electric for full hookups. The park seems to be pretty quiet with no noise from trains, planes and limited road noise. So far, I am pleased. The water has good pressure and seems to taste ok. We have 30amp electric and it's working just fine. Hookups look pretty modern. We figured that we could camp cheaper in the desert but would spend so much time dumping and getting water and running the generator that it would be just about as expensive. I realize that RV parks are not for everyone, but we are into comfort. :-)

If you are wanting a place to stay, I think there are spaces available here.

Guys, I've just merged a duplicate thread (which was recently "bumped") with this one since our rules don't allow duplicates.

stonekeepers,

Hows the Desert Gardens???
I checked Desert Gardens after reading your post and got a response this morning. I got a reservation form for Jan 18th. Do I need to fill out the forms or did you leave? Is it okay? Showers?
Hows the weather? All settled in? I can't wait to get there
Tim

The fun of of Quartzsite is boone docking. Also putting up large antennas for ham radio. Mile post 99 is best place. That is where the techie geeks hang out from all over the USA and Canada. If you're not into techie geek stuff a hum drum RV park would work out OK.

We have been in Q since Oct 5th. We are on a leased lot as carrying water and poop gets old. We totally enjoy the laid back atmosphere. Every one is friendly and we enjoy the
desert. Just come and enjoy whether for a short or long stay. Q is unique.

Hi spritz.

Desert Gardens is fine. It's as nice as any if the parks here and better than a lot if them.

Yesterday, we joined the QIA (Quartzsite Improvement Association). They have dances, classes, craft shows, dinners, etc. cost to join is only $5 and the events are reasonable.

On Thursday we will join the gem and mineral club. It costs more but they have workspace with equipment to polish stones and make jewelry. And they also lead rock hunting field trips :-)


There are also activities at the rv park (and other parks). So, in addition to all of the shows and vendors around there is music and other stuff to do. I am having a hard time trying to decide.

I don't know where the irv2 area might be. I have never seen so many RVs in one place and it's still early yet.

Weather is not like Florida but is not quite as cold as other parts of the country. It's supposed to be warmer in a couple of days. Haven't seen any rain or snow. Just cold and wind. At least it's sunny.

No it's not Florida, but wait a minute because daytime temps can be quite warm in winter months you will see.

We are getting excited,It's been pretty chilly up here between -10 and +10 I started her up again today. The gennie hasn't been started for about a month and it fired right off. I got a bad battery that I have to replace next week. We got the CB installed and am installing the new stereo tonight but it don't work so we are going to try again tomorrow.
I think I know the answer to this but I have to ask. Does the gennie in a 82 PA have a battery back there or is it connected to the front battery's? I have never seen one back there.
Thanks for the info if all goes well we plan on being there around the 18th of Jan unless the MH is froze to the ground...
Tim
