Dates
January 18-26, 2022
Official start date is Tuesday January 18. Departure date is Wednesday January 26th. You may arrive early or stay longer.

Schedule
Tuesday - Jan 18
All Day - Arrival of our MOC Family to the gathering site on Plomosa Road (look for sign on road posted at mile marker 2.8).
4:00 PM - Announcements (Welcome and Rules) at campfire circle. Please try to arrive at least by 3:00 PM so check-in and parking will not dust down the area. If you plan on participating in the Hors D'oeuvres, everyone needs to contribute.
4:30 PM - Happy Hour/Hors D'oeuvres--Campfire to follow.

Everyday
4:30 PM
- Happy Hour/Hors D'oeuvres--Campfire to follow.

Additional items TBA, but this is desert camping & relaxing; don't expect much!

Location
Quartzsite, AZ (near AZ/CA state line on Interstate 10); camping on Plomosa Road.

The camping on Plomosa Road is on BLM land and is in the "NO FEE" area which means it is absolutely free!!! There is a 14 day stay limit in the no fee area where we will be camped (14 nights out on the 15th day) so plan accordingly. You will need to sign in with the BLM volunteer at the entrance to Plomosa Rd. and get your 14-day sticker. If you have questions or concerns about camping on the BLM land, please do not contact the BLM Office or the rangers directly as this has caused problems for our group in the past. Instead, try to find the information on line or PM us and we will do our best to get the answer for you.

We will have a MOC sign posted on Plomosa Road to show you where to turn off the road to get to the gathering area (pictures and directions will be in a separate post after we arrive and know exactly where we will be).

Directions to our site
We anticipate having the same site as last year.

Plomosa Road is about 6 miles NORTH of the intersection of Main Street and AZ-95 in downtown Quartzsite.

From Quartzsite drive NORTH on AZ-95 past mile marker 114, turn RIGHT (EAST) onto Plomosa Road.

Drive 2.8 miles, turn LEFT at Montana Sign onto BLM land.

Turn LEFT again in about 75 yards (there will be a 2nd sign).....look for lots of Montana's and flags....about 1/4 mile WEST.

The camping in the Plomosa Rd. area is "Dry Camping", but please do not let that discourage you from attending if you haven't dry camped before. This is just another aspect of the RVing experience and there is plenty of expertise that can be tapped into from your fellow MOC Members and with all the great people, you will not even miss any of the amenities.

WEATHER
The weather at this time of year is relatively mild with daytime temperatures hovering around 70 and nighttime temperatures dropping into the 50's-40's.

QUIET HOURS
For the purposes of this rally and our group, we will observe Quiet Hours" between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. daily.

OTHER INFORMATION
There are no electric hookups: QUIET generators are required for power. We have had issues with loud generators in the past, so for the peace of all, please do not use a contractor type or any open frame generator. If you have a loud generator, you will be asked to set up residence outside of the circle...period.

There is cell phone service and internet access via your air card or phone if you have those services.

There is no cable TV: Satellite reception is great because of the lack of trees and "over- the- air" digital TV can be received from Yuma and Phoenix.

GARBAGE
Garbage is to be taken to the waste transfer station on Hwy. 95 between Plomosa Rd. and Quartzsite (Sunday-Wednesday, 7:30 AM - 2:30 PM). Waste Management does not make calls to the desert. Some of our good-hearted souls will pull their truck in the center circle for a dump run. If you are going to Quartzsite or to the transfer station, please volunteer to take some trash and save on trips. If you are placing trash in someone else's truck, make sure bag is properly sealed and not leaking.

WATER AND SEWER
When you arrive at the Circle, you should have full fresh water & propane tanks, and empty black & gray tanks.

There are no water hookups: However, several of us have 40-gallon water bladders and 12-volt pumps, all available for you to use to acquire water. Cost of filling the bladder is $5-$10 at “Tumbleweeds” or “The Pit Stop”.

Propane tanks can be filled in town.

There are no sewage dumps at the campsite: When you need sewer service, you will need to go to town to dump. We may schedule a honey wagon service to come a few days before the end of the rally, but that depends on their availability and how many need service. They will pump your tanks right at the camp site; usually about $45. They will only come if we have enough people sign up for the service. We will discuss this as the date gets closer.

We will also need firewood, and lots of it, for our nightly visits around the camp fire. Previously we have been able to purchase firewood locally and will plan to do the same this year.

We will be asking for a $10 donation when you arrive to help pay for the wood and various office and printing expenditures.
