Bob---I am aware of the Hobo Rally but the Blugrass festival has nothing to do with WBCCI. I have attended it the past 3 years and a row and plan to go again this year. It is held at the same place but at different dates. The Music festival is held the weekend of Jan 19-20-21 at the fairgrounds outside of Blyth. It is put on by the Southern Calif. Bluegrass Assoc. In the past this was the same weekend the big RV show is held in Quartzsite. Don't have the dates for the Hobo Rally but it is a different event.

The Airstream gathering I heard about is neither one either. It was my understanding that a group of vintage Airstreamers met and camped together every year south and east of Quartzsite out on BlM land. I was given directions to it but didn't want to drag my new trailer out there as it was quit some distance over a rough road. This had nothing to do with the Hobo Rally either. pieman

OK Mike, I think I understand your question now. In the past years there has been a "gathering of friends" near Quartzsite and prior to the Hobo Rally. Members of El Camino Real have attended and this unit is Vintage heavy, there have also been members of Northern California Unit (I don't know if they are Vintage heavy or not). I believe that this gathering has been somewhat organized by either Nor Cal or ECR in the past. There was some discussion about this event at the last ECR rally and I believe that Nor Cal was putting it together. Perhaps this is what you have heard about.

I had to go to Parker today at work. On my return trip I went through Quartzsite. Most of the open parking type places (edge of town) are around 10% to 20% full (rough quess), but there was a steady stream of RVers heading into town from several directions. After the first of the year I never go that route.
