Quartzsite-Mile Marker 99

We moved over to Mile Marker 99 last Wednesday (Jan. 28th) joining Chuck and Jan Moore and company.  Dean and Judy have “accumulated” a stash of fire wood that Judy really wanted used up, so we are having nightly fires to accommodate them.


As many of you who follow Chuck and Jan’s blog, you know Chuck is “into” making sour dough bread and the other night he surprised us with giving us some.  It was so wonderful!!! We made toast the next morning and it was absolutely the best I’ve ever had.  Now I’m trying to talk Jim into expanding his culinary skills to include sour dough items.

Sorry the flash distorted the bread

Our little group is expanding daily now including Ed and JanDSCN5125

It has rained, but the girls were able to get out of our rigs for while yesterday and visit (and nearly bought out) the Gem Shop in town.  I never knew this place existed.  This place is a huge wholesale style bead and rock store. Items are very, very inexpensive and has a huge variety.

Even though I’m not a beader, I found a set of six Buddhas in various poses, some small jewelry gift bags, and a few metal pieces one of the girls is going to make into earrings for me.


We had another fire last night and our group expanded to include Loren, Bill and Gisela and Betty and Duane.  It’s going to be a heck of a good Super Bowl party tomorrow!!!!

Quartzsite IV

There have been some beautiful sunrises and sunsets at Boomerville. Here is one of my fav sunrises


The sunsets start out pretty, progress to beautiful and end up spectacular.

The Moores did a “knock about” knocking on doors and visiting for a few minutes before proceeding to the next rig…kind of a good idea I think I’ll “borrow” and do ourselves.  Here is Chuck and Jan who were introducing Mark and Patsy to other folks.

Wednesday was the last day of Boomerville.  We have met several of our friends while in Boomerville, but hadn’t connected with Kenny and Angela as they were working the Big Tent during this time.  So we made arrangements to have breakfast with them yesterday at Sweet Darlene’s in town. 


The food was pretty good with inexpensive prices.

Kenny’s breakfast with biscuits and gravy, with eggs and bacon for $5.95
And here’s my Western Breakfast with hash browns and toast for $4.95



The other day when we went to get milk this was one of the vehicles in the parking lot….a pirate themed truck




And here’s Poncho sneaking out of the covers to see if I was leaving him alone again or not…



Wednesday we joined the Moores and Shealys over at mile marker 99 off Hwy 95 for a more informal gathering to watch the Super Bowl….at an outside TV of someone’s motorhome….should be fun. 

Last night we had happy hour….of course…at our new site with Jim, Pat, Linda, Chuck, Judy, Jan and Dean


We will stay here till Monday and then move on over to North Ranch Escapee RV Club’s park between Congress and Wickenburg and wait till the condo closes.

Remember, you are loved.
