Tomorrow morning we are jumping in the car and driving west on I-10 to Quartzsite so we can see why more than a million people visit the area each winter. Last year it is estimated that 150,000 people attended the Quartzsite Sports, Vacation and RV Show. We will check out the Big Tent, 55,000 square feet with 300 vendors inside. We guess it will be a mega version of the Mesa Swap Meet.
We live in a Montana 5th-wheel trailer. We won't be taking it to Quartzsite, but many other Montana owners do go in theirs. This is a picture of the Montana Circle at Quartzsite this year.
Pretty impressive, isn't it? Instead, we will be staying in a motel in nearby Blythe, CA, for two nights. We really aren't in to large groups of people or gatherings oriented mainly to socializing, but every RVer we know who has been there says , "You have to go there at least once."
In a few days, I will share our photos and impressions with you.
