Wagonmasters
Scott Zenonian & Bob Rohrmann

Dates
January 16-23, 2024
Official start date is Tuesday January 16. Departure date is Tuesday January 23th. However, BLM allows you to stay 14 days, so come early, stay later, whatever you want to do.

Schedule
TBA, but this is desert camping & relaxing; don't expect a busy schedule!
The huge Quartzsite RV Show runs January 20-28. https://www.quartzsitervshow.com/

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.

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.

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

Plomosa Road (AZ-95 mile marker 114) is about 6 miles NORTH of the intersection of Mainstreet and AZ-95 in Quartzsite. Westbound I-10 exit 19, eastbound I-10 exit 17, then proceed on Mainstreet (northside of I-10) to AZ-95, turn north, proceed 6 miles to Plomosa Road. Southbound AZ-95 (from Parker), turn east on Plomosa Rd 6 miles before you get to Quartzsite. Northbound AZ-95 (from Yuma), proceed 6 miles past Quartzsite to Plomosa Road.

Drive 2.8 miles east on Plomosa Road, 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.

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
To respect our group and those around us, 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 or solar 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 phone (slow due to number of users) or Starlink.

There is no cable TV. Satellite reception is great because of the lack of trees. Not much "over- the- air" TV.

GARBAGE
Garbage is to be taken to the waste transfer station on Hwy. 95 between Plomosa Rd. and Quartzsite (Sunday-Wednesday, 7:30 AM – 1:00 PM, Closed Thursday, Friday, Saturday). 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 SEWER PROPANE
When you arrive at the Circle, you should have full fresh water & propane tanks, and empty black & gray tanks.

This is dry camping; no water, electric or sewer hook-ups.

Water, propane and dump stations are located in town at “RV Relief”, “The Pit Stop” and others.

Several of us have 40-gallon water bladders and 12-volt pumps to get water from town. Cost of filling the bladder is $5-$10 at “RV Relief” or “The Pit Stop”.

Most of us can last the week without dumping.

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 $20 donation when you arrive to help pay for the wood and various office and printing expenditures.

Area Rules
This is dispersed camping on BLM land. Check in with the BLM host just off Hwy 95 to get your FREE permit; there is a 14-day camping limit.

Rules will be on your permit, not many but we need to follow them:
  • No dumping os sewage (go to town)
  • No dumping trash
  • Do not destroy vegetation
  • Do not tear up the desert with vihicles; tread lightly, stay on trails/roads

If this is a question, then I would highly encourage you to be in the circle. It is the best way to meet new friends and enjoy the camaraderiethat occurs there.

We are Herb and Elaine Schaff. I inadvertently didn't take into account the big tent opening date. We would like to change our arrival date for the rally to 1/18 departing 1/21. My relative Marty and Anajo now cannot attend. Another couple camper friends want to join us at the rally.

Got it, thanks, Dates are completely flexible and just give us an idea of how big to make the circle.
