Who all is camped there at this time? How warm does it get this time of year?

The weather for the most part has been grate this year.Most of the days have been in the upper 60's and low 70's with lot of SUN.BUT the first part of next week "they" say we are going to get 3 or 4 days of rain showers with temps in the low to mid 60's.

Well, your low rain temps there are about 10 degrees higher than our high rain temps here. It is warmer here in the winter when it rains than when the sky is clear and sunny so whether it is raining there or the usual sunny you are way ahead of us in the warmth department. I guess from the pictures I see though with everyone bundled up around the campfires that it gets pretty chilly when the sun goes down?

I am so looking forward to spending some of next winter with you folks there. It will be nice to meet all of you, spend some time relaxing and watching the grounds keeper mow that lawn I see (I guess that would be Mike with his divot maker?), and participate in the New Years and/or DH gatherings.

I sure enjoy the pictures and updates you post Jim. They fill the void we currently have in our camping lives with everything tucked away for the next few weeks.

Barry

Surrounded at q

Another grate day in Q the temp today will get up to about70.Sunny
BUT the 3 or 4 days of rain showers will start Monday.
The big talk around the LTVA yesterday is that the well pump where we get water is BROKE and it is down about 800 feet in the well.Now all we can do is wait for the BLM to fix it.In the mean time we will have to buy water in town.
On Friday the BLM had over 400 rig sign in to the LTVA.That is not counting all that came to the 5 FREE camping areas.
Here a a few photo of how we have been surrounded by RV's in the LTVA.
Photo 1 US
Photo 2,3 and 4 around us.

Looks like they're trying to BOX you in. Please don't go out sleep walking through the wash for the next couple nights. I know you can't trust those bloody mary's.

Stay safe and say HI to all our AS friends out there in Q.

We've been monitoring the weather channel and watching the skies. Looks like it is coming this way. We're getting battened down here. Thanks for the heads up.

Well the worst has passed WE ALL came out of it ok.
Will see how the BIG tent and vendors tents did in the AM.
PHX it look like the worst line has broken up.
The wash by us is running good now so we have water front property for an hour or so.

I was thinking about all of you out there in Q. We sure had some wind and rain yesterday here in the South East Valley. Next door in Chandler they were recording 49 MPH winds. Thankfully we had enough rain to soak the desert floor or we would have had a major dust storm rolling in off of the Gila Reservation. Stay dry and keep the reports coming in.
