Boomerville Starts

Today was the first official day of Boomerville (Escapee sub-group called Boomers meeting in Quartzsite is called Boomerville). We have 65 rigs were here for the first day. We will have about 150 rigs totally, but with rigs coming and going. Some rigs, like us, will stay the whole two weeks, while others stay a few days or a week.

Today was very, very windy with gusts up to 40 MPH, so some of the guys took refuge in front of our rig as it blocked the wind. I took this photo from the kitchen window.
The wind was so fierce they had to move our welcoming tent to in front of another rig to keep everything from blowing away.

Jim went to town to help set up the American Land & Leisure booth, but most of the work was already done by the morning shift; but Jim did get to talk with Gary Huntington the Personnel Manager, and that was good.

We had our daily Happy Hour, which for Escapees is their social get together time to greet new arrivals and make announcements of upcoming events. Tomorrow there will be a Women's Talk time, a talk on solar panels for rvs and another on catalytic heater installation in rvs. Jim will go to both of them.

We are also having a visit from Niki and Mike so they can see our rig which we purchased since we last saw them. That will be fun! We love having them around us again.

Remember, you are loved!
