Excerpt from page above: Location: We will be in the same area as in the past – South of I-10 below Quartzsite. Go 6.2 miles south on Hwy 95 (south of Milepost 99). Turn west on 53rd St North (formerly LaPaz Valley Rd) about 200 yards and then go northwest into the desert. Follow the Newmar Kountry Klub signs, the first sign will be where you turn off Hwy 95 to the right south of milepost 99. Come early and/or stay later or just stop by to visit if you can.

Whomever is going to Quartzsite this year with the NKK feel free to use this thread to ask questions, coordinate anything, etc. Reply if you want to simply state you're going (roll call). Ted sent out the following email. One thing I'm not sure of is if there are any arrival windows. Anyone know...
We arrive Tuesday, but stay at Holiday Palms, which is caddy corner from the big tent on the other side of the freeway. Last year, I drove over and everyone was gone. Why do people leave the week of the RV Show?
In my case, I arrive on Gathering day #1. By the time I get to Monday, I’ve had enough and am ready to move on and dump tanks. 1 day at the RV show is plenty for me anyway. Sorry to miss the opportunity. I was looking forward to meeting you. Upon leaving, I’m heading for Thermal, Anza Borrego, San Diego, Yuma and Mesa before heading back to MI in April.
@Dutch Star Don we have our social at 3 PM and Dinner at 4:30 PM. Why don't you come join us? PM or Text me if you need info on where we are. We have seminars going on this morning 9, 10:30 and 1. Campfire after all of the above.
More of the same tomorrow, then SAT/SUN the tent invasion.
I guess we do Quartzsite a little differently. We arrive after the RV Show opens and visit it 2-3 different times, absorbing what they have. By the middle of the week, the crowds are way down and it's nice taking our time in the tent. We also hit all the various swap meets and outlying flea markets. We even spend an afternoon shooting out in the desert, just past the golf course. We do all of this during four full days there during the week. If we have a new female to the group, we drop by the book store and let them be surprised by the old man with the banana hangar. New attendees also get a ride to the Camel Monument.
After Quartzsite, we'll take a loop around to Camp Verde, through Flagstaff and a couple of days at Williams with a day at the Grand Canyon and then home to replace my other knee.
