Looks like you all had a great time. We need to try camping in that part of the Rim. When does that campground close down for the year?

We did have a good time...wish you could have been there! Next time!

According to the Sinkhole Campground website...the season is generally mid-May to the end of October. Earlier or later depending upon weather.... That probably applies to most if not all the campgrounds in that area...

Sinkhole is about 5 miles from Mogollon Campground where Jim & Min are...we stayed at Sinkhole because we were supposed to meet non-AS friends there (who then didn't make it)...

Where back

Well our first time being camp host went well, but ened on 31 Oct. Most of the time it was fun.The Mogollon camp ground has only 26 sites and is full only on week ends.70% of the campers are tent campers so life was EZ.
You can see from the other postings that some of our AS friend did come to visit a few times.
Not having cell phone,TV,or internet sevice at first was hard but we soon learnd to live with out it quite well.That is what BOONDOCKING is all about doing with out.
We are now back in the BIG Q for the winter with Scrapirony and 2 other Airsteamers.
Min gave me a new dog for Christmas.Her name is Lucy.She is about 9 Mo. old and looks alot like Bob did.BUT has alot run in her at this age.
We will be looking forward to going back to camp host again around the 1 st of May.
Hope some of you will stop by the BIG Q and visit us this Winter.

Mike,

We will be out the end of the month. El Camino Real has a rally at the Quartzsite Marketplace from Jan 26 to 31. Are you in the same place as last year?

Grate weather

Well the weather has sure been good here in the big Q this year.We are now just getting over a few bad days off cold and wind.It was 25 F last night, the high today of only 55 F and SUNNY.
BUT this is a lot better than some of you are having in other parts of the countery.
It will be back in the mid 70s tomorrow with lots of sun and no wind for the next week.
We sure feel for you snow birds that are still in the SNOW.
I do not know why some of the folks that came for the BIG tent RV show have alread left.It is hard to find nicer weather in the USA than in the big Q. EAT YOUR HARTS OUT you snow bound folks.

Don't Worry, Help is on the Way

Sounds like y'all are up to your ears in important things to do and don't have enough time to do 'em. Don't worry, help is on the way! We are planning to come to Q after DH V for a while and thaw out. -18F yesterday AM - the same as Silverton - and only had one pipe to fix in the mechanical room. Thank goodness it is off of the garage and not the house plus it has a working floor drain.

From Frostbite Falls,

Howard

Hi Jim;

Great to be here with you & Min. Just joined the airforms so have much to learn. We have appreciated all the "gang" has shared as we have asked questions during "happy hour"

See you at 4.

Today in the BIG Q

Well another nice sunny day in the BIG Q but only up to about 63F today.
The party is comming to a end for many folks here.The big tent has been taken down and a lot of the venders have gone along with about 2/3 of the campers.I do not know here they are off to since this is still about the best weather in the U.S.
The big thing in our Airstream group now is making home made breads,pastas and yogurt.Will we all live longer now?
Well time for me to go out in the sun and finish my Bloody Marry.Only 7 hours till happy hour.
