Cave Creek Regional Park

  We left Quartzsite and headed on I-10 east to Hwy 60 via Aguila and Wickenburg over to Carefree Hwy in Cave Creek. We were planning to head back to Cave Creek Regional Campground for another few weeks of hiking and visiting friends and family AND rotate camp sites! We continue to return to this campground because we are in …

Quartzsite Arizona

  Quartzsite offers a variety of RV parks and boondocking areas where you could try a different area every time you visited and never stay at the same place twice (well, almost). The boondocking areas have both short term and long term visitation. Two of the BLM areas, Plomosa Rd and Hi Jolly, offer free camping for up to 14 …

Boondocking at it’s finest …. in Quartzsite! We have boondocked all over the Quartzsite area with the last being Plomosa Rd BLM.

We continue to stay at this park abiding by the rule whereby you can only stay 14 days in a site and then you have to move so off we move. The sites are always nicely maintained and have site privacy and great views but in the winter time these sites can be hard to come by unless you have …

We are back to the home of the Western Diamondback Rattlesnake and the Peach Faced Love Birds. We have encountered both of these here before and have lived to tell about it (more so because of the rattlesnake, not the Love Birds). We enjoy this campground and the hiking trails and the great views.   Campground: Usery Mountain Regional Park …

Those Young Guys Halloween 2017

We are back at McDowell Mountain where I had my bike fall last year around this same time. I guess I was riding too aggressively and went over the bumps and sailed over the handle bars into the cactus and landed (actually skidded) onto my shoulder and ribs. No broken bones but lots of scratches and bruises. This year my …

Cave Creek - Stagecoach Village

When heading south through Nevada in the Las Vegas area we like to head through Lake Mead National Recreation Area to help bypass traffic and take in the fantastic scenery. Sometimes we stop and spend a few nights or a week and sometimes we just drive through. Beautiful scenery and no traffic!   And then we continued on over the …

RV Big Tent Quartzsite Sports, Vacation & RV Show, also known as The Big Tent, or as I like to call it “Burning Man for Seniors” is held yearly in January. It’s a great place to check out some new RVs and/or new RV products and buy lots of stuff that you don’t really need.  There is also plenty of …
