Tucson, AZ Visit #2

In 2015, we visited Tuscon for The World's Best Roadschool Convention. We really enjoyed this area and were thrilled to go back to visit friends, this winter.  The first night we arrived we hiked with our friends from Road It Up at Tucson Mountain Park. 

We also hiked at Saguaro National Park. Jayda choose Misty (our friend) as her buddy.  The Saguaro cacti tower above the trail. The path is easy to follow, and every turn of the trail had a different view.  

The kids and I visited Catalina State Park. The park is located very close to the city of Tucson with conveniences, such as Walmart and restaurants close to the entrance. It would be a great place to stay if we visit Tucson again. The spots are large and the landscape is beautiful. 

One of the highlights of our visit was visiting Rocks and Ropes. Our friends spent time teaching us about rock climbing and the whole family had fun trying something new. We have been focusing on experiences and this one tops the list of favorites.

Quartzsite, AZ

Description:  boondocking in the desert 

Location: Arizona

Cost:  No Cost 

Adventure Highlights: 


Have you heard of Quartzsite, AZ ? If you are a Fulltime RV the answer is likely yes.  Since we have been RVing we have heard the name "Quartzsite" and wondered what it was all about. This winter we decided to check it out. The population of Quartzsite is 3,677. The town expands to 250,000 in the winter months.

What brings RVers to Quartzsite ? Boondocking. This is our spot at Dome Rock. We meet up with 4 other families fulltime RV families.  There are many areas surrounding the town where you can park for free (up to 14 days) or pay a small fees to use the dump station and garbage (La Posa Long Term Visitor Area).

The kids had fun from the time the sun came up till after the sun down. Some of the families this was our first meeting and others we have known for years. During our almost 4 years on the road, the thing that surprises me the most of how often we meet up and see our friends on the road. One season we may be in Florida and our next meet up will be in Arizona. It happens sometimes by chance we are in the same area and others we seek out meetups. The kids (as well as adults) pick up right where they left off. There is no "getting to know" each other time period. They are excited they are kids to play with. This week they started a rock band, and our youngest son has put bass guitar on the top of his wish list.

During our stay, two events took place. The QIA Pow Wow Gem and Mineral Show and the Big Tent. The Gem and Mineral Show was something to be seen.  Any and every kind of rock imaginable. The Big Tent had anything and everything for RVing.
