Default Quartzsite 2017 (aka Q 11)

This is the second largest yearly gathering of Blue Bird Wanderlodge coaches, and the largest yearly gathering of Blue Birds west of Pine Mountain, GA.

“Birds of a Feather” 2017 Quartzsite Blue Bird Rally information is available for viewing. Click on https://birdsofafeather1.shutterfly.com/ the password is flocktogether. The documents are fluid in that they will be revised some as time moves forward.

Nesting area is the same as all prior years. Google Maps: http://goo.gl/maps/6Grhe Takes a few seconds to load. Instructions are on the left.

This has been a saga for me. I bought my bus in the fall of 2012 and had every intention of spending 2012-13 in the lovely climes of the Arizona Desert. But fate had different plans and I never was able to get there.

I was sure that by the fall of 2013-14, I would be able to finally get to Quartzsite, but that winter, I couldn't leave the state.

By the fall of 2014-15, my troubles were behind me, but wife and I were back together and she couldn't retire yet. So another season went by the boards.

Last winter, 2015-16 we just weren't quiet ready. Wife wanted to work for about 9 more months. So we let another year slip by.

THIS WINTER... 2016-17 we are coming to Quartzsite, damnit. The bus may break down, and I may have to push it all the way, but I'm not letting another year get away from us. Don't know when exactly we'll arrive, but thinking sometime in December 2016. See ya all there!!! We'll be the couple with the big "LEARNER" plate on the front and back of our T-shirts.

We are going to try to make it again this year. Really missed not getting there last year. With a 9 year old grandson now in our custody, LOTS of things have changed! Priorities are totally rearranged!

However, school and teacher is pretty darn open to out of the classroom learning. I think if we plan a Hoover Dam visit, and some other things, it will be ok.

Anyone have other noteworthy places to go for a third grader?

There is a Wild Animal park up outside Williams, west of Flagstaff. I would bet on this visit. Just off I40.
And of course if anyone is within 150 miles, the Grand Canyon is imperative.
60 miles north of Williams. Or the Grand Canyon Railway out of Williams.

Better check your map Fred, or are you getting like Putz and leaving it up to GPS? Four weeks ago Williams was still WEST of Flagstaff.

I can't wait! I was there this year but mentally and physically was not. I might even get out of the coach and be sociable!

Grand Canyon, must see that ;} Yellowstone and the Tetons could be on the way too...

Plenty of Indian Ruins along the route from ND to Q.

Look at the nps.gov site and pick parks and monuments along the way...


HTH, Joe
