. . . actually we plan to DRIVE from Phoenix to the Quartzsite SuperCharger at Carl's Jr and hope to meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Costco at 10000 W. McDowell Road in Avondale. Let's connect at the NorthEast corner of the Costco lot, get some pix, and depart about 9:45. A few facts: When: Saturday, January 4 Distance from Phoenix Sky Harbor to Quartzsite: 134 miles Distance from Costco-Avondale to Quartzsite: 111 miles Route: West on I-10 Average January High Temp in Quartzsite: 65 degrees Town Slogan: "RV Boondocking Capital of the World," but is also "Where the Sun Goes to Play." How Quartzsite Got it's Name: Lots of quartz around & a spelling error that got repeated Dining Establishments: Carl's Jr (duh!), Burger King (just next door), Silly Al's Pizza, Taco Mio, Mountain Quail Cafe and LOTS of fry bread at the gem & minerals shows. What to Do & See: We can joke about Quartzsite as just a wide spot on the road to California, but the Gemstone, Mineral, and Rock shows are amazing! During our visit, two shows will be running and are worth seeing even if you thought you had no interest in rocks. There is also the Hi Jolly Monument, petroglyphs, palm canyon, the site where Patton's troops trained during WWII, a naked bookstore owner, and the world largest RV parking lot. Quartzsite, AZ RV ATV Park, Show Listing Rock Gem Show Jan 3th-12th, 2014 Sites to See Flat Tire Kit: I will have one - I pray it never gets used! Call or PM if you have any questions. Hope to see many of you again. Mark 6o2-98O-1875 cell.
