By now, you've read all about the RTR on other blogs. If you haven't, a list of blog posts about this years' Rubber Tramp Rendezvous can be found here.
A number of us stayed on (and on and on and on) in Quartzsite, after the RTR. The party continued and the RTR just kept getting better.
Days often began with coffee, in front of Theo
Tish's mornings began later than ours
There was plenty of good food. Lesa made some tasty breakfasts; pancakes one morning and biscuits and gravy another.
Among them a breakfast consisting of fry bread and sausage gravy
and a chicken curry dish
Kev hosted a Super Bowl Party. Bryce made a delicious sausage soup.Steve brought chips and dip. Lindzee made humus and Brian made a cake.
The party continued until after dark.
We celebrated Brian's birthday with pizza and cake
Jenn was awoken on her birthday with a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday that wouldn't end until she made an appearance. And we delivered breakfast, coffee and brownies. I know Jenn will be real sad to find out I can find those pictures anywhere.
Max and his wife, Bev, invited us down to his place for a fire, one night. Max is my hero. He's 86 and had both knees replaced about 10 years ago. He's put over 80,000 miles on those knees. His goal is 100, 000 miles. I hope to match his spirit and his miles!
I left Scaddan Wash and set up over at the Roadrunner BLM
My buddy Gilbert, from Dirtville came by
Gilbert let me win at poker, but he'll tell you I cheated.
Linda and D joined us
Who knew you could cook spaghetti squash on an open fire? Nicely done, D!
Linda made us Bangers and mashed, one night (that's sausage and smashed taters, Brit style)
Jenn and Brian (the Younger)came by and spent a few nights before heading to... who knows where?
I left Quartzsite on February 26 heading south and east. Many thanks, once again to D, for all his help with my rig; And to Gilbert and Brian for their help with Theo's solar set up!
