If it's Mid-January then this must be Quartzsite, Arizona.
We have been here this week for the annual gathering of friends and
the Big RV Show.
Each January, thousands of RVs descend upon this tiny desert town for
the RV show and related gatherings.
Many RV clubs hold get togethers all over the nearby desert.
Like thousands of others, we staked out our own piece of the desert.
Just pull off the highway in a spot that strikes your fancy and make yourself at home.
A colorful sunrise usually starts our day.
We meet up with old friends from our Montana Group.
About 30 Rigs formed the circle. We parked outside but nearby.
Many folks break out their other "toys" that get transported in their RV's...
A paraglider makes a low pass behind our bus.
A visit to the RV Show is always on the list of activities.
There is the "Big Tent", plus acres of Midways.
Lots of junk vendors, plus many reputable products.
Its a great place to acquire needed upgrades.
A few dollars of mine were left in the tent.
Inside the "Big Tent". Its about a football field in size.
Gracie and Lucy get a visit from Buddy & Chili, two new pups in the group.

Happy hours are a good time to get together to meet and greet, catch up on the days action,
and learn about new vendors at the show.
This was the final happy hour at the Montana Circle.
Our final Quartzsite sunset.
But many more Arizona Sunsets remain ahead.
Tomorrow I have a 9am appointment near the big tent to have some modifications performed
on the steering and suspension of the bus.
We are having a Safe T Plus steering stabilizer added. This will improve normal
handling as well as keep the bus tracking straight in the event of a steer tire blowout.
We are also having MCS's (motion control units) installed on the airbags.
They improve side to side sway of the bus by limiting the speed at which air
enters or leaves the airbags.
These two proven modifications will improve the handling and comfort of the already
comfortable ride as well as add an important safety feature to the steering.
After we finish up with the modifications, we will drive 90 miles south
to Yuma where we will stay at an RV Park thru Sunday.
This is our usual post Quartzsite activity.
This year we have about 6 rigs going to Yuma
so there will be more happy hours ahead as well as Bronco Sunday.
