RE: Pilgrim Open Road advice please?

we have a 2007 open road with 3 slides. Never a problem with the unit. Apollo micro went out about a year ago, replaced with another convection/micro. We bought it new in May 2007 and have traveled to Arizona from Ontario Canada each year. We stay in it for 5 months during the winter. .Have been really satisfied with it. We are in Quartzsite Arizona now and packing up to leave for home in about 2 weeks. The air cond has run each afternoon for the last month(a little warm over here). Just make sure you do your research and chek out all the components before buying. The insulation in the walls and ceiling are good, way better than our neighbors TT. Hope this helps. Dona

RE: Bringing rocks to Canada?

would like to see the site on that one. Common run of the mill desert rocks should not pose a problem. Make sure they are clean and have no dirt on them..we do import minerals and specimen rocks and crystals into Canada, but we have our broker fill out all needed paper work with weight and country of origin. We pay our duty and customs and have not had any problems in the last 10 years. We bring them in ourselves and do not ship anything by a freight carrier. And yes, its alot of paper work, but we are reselling

RE: Quartzite is empty

Q is getting crowded. Dome Rock road and Cholla road looks like an RV park right now. There were lines waiting for dinner at times three restaurant last night for the fish fry! Traffic is much heavier than last week. RV show starts today.

RE: Yuma /Winterhaven

the parking lot charges $5.00 for the day at the border. It is right at the border. No bus that I know of. It is a safe and secure lot, run by the Quechan tribe. From the lot it is about a block into Mexico. The wait to come back to the US could be over an hour or more at this time of year. At least most of it is shaded and has benches to sit on. The casino is very nice, lots of folks dry camp there. It is on the same road to Mexico, about 2 miles from the border. Have never stayed in their lot, only in the hotel.Very nice with decent food,and great pools. If you get into Mexico around 8-9am, spend 2 hours, then head out by 11am, you should be out before 1pm.Just depends on how many tourist are there that day. The longest I have been in line to get out is 2 1/2 hrs.and I hate! standing in lines..Another idea is go late in afternoon and head out about 5pm-6pm. Have done that, and it was a shorter line. Dona

RE: Bed room bed/mattress slider

We bought some cheap stick-on floor tiles, about twenty of them, stuck them on the plywood, the mattress slides much easier now, can be a one person job. T We did the same things 6 years ago. I always complained about not being able to move the mattress. Went to the hardware store and bought the cheapest box of peel and stick floor tiles. Thin ones. Hubby and I cut and put them down, they have never peeled off. Best thing we ever did. Can't say its a breeze to make that king bed, but it sure makes the mattress slide where you need it to go..I can now make the bed by my self. Dona

RE: 1 week return to florida from T.O

I'd take the Dominican trip, no driving, complete relaxation for the entire week with palm tree surroundings and a cool one in hand. And, no worries about lousy weather! Try the truck out in the spring when you have more time.. Dona

RE: Is Quartzsite history?

I would not say prices have "doubled and tripled". You can still get a good fish fry on fridays at all the restaurants for 8.99. The two grocery stores in town have expanded their items, and yes Albertson's in Blythe is a high priced grocery store. Right now, reg gas is 3.25 at Love's and Pilot. Diesel is 3.95 and 4.05 credit(big truck advertised price.) Many vendors have starting setting up at Desert Gardens and Tyson. Rice ranch still looks a bit empty. More are coming in each day. Had pizza at Silly Al's last night, place was packed! Prices have not changed. Lots still goes on at the QIA. And Walmart in Parker is 40 miles away, not 70 as the linked article states a few posters back. Don't bring lots of shorts and t's, mornings are down right cold. We had a campfire this morning. It is going to be low 70's in afternoon. The Leather man, as you call him, has been putting on fabulous concerts around the area, even in Blythe. He is an accomplished pianist, and the shows are well attended. He does wear clothes at all public events.

RE: Tulsa OK to Yuma AZ

I always go I-44 to WF, 277 to Abilene, I-20 out to I-10 unless particularly nasty weather says "don't go just now" and that could be not just winter weather, but tornado outbreaks as well. 30+ years of habit, it was the preferred route for mail-car twice-daily runs NE Oklahoma to Odessa. Been through New Mexico diagonally as well, route is more scenic but slower, and mountain roads more susceptible to winter conditions. this is the route we have taken for 10 years. I-44 thru Okla costs us 30.00. We get on before Tulsa and off in WF to go 277 to Abilene. Fuel is usually cheaper on I-44 and easy to get into the service areas. Good hwy all the way. 277 is great, has been re-routed to bypass the towns, so have a full tank before you get on it. Dona

RE: See Pictures: RV Theme Pillow Cases (Home made)

lots of quilters in Quartzsite, but have not ever seem pillow cases! Good idea. Usually its the pot luck bags, aprons and table runners. Saw a cute baby quilt last month. You may be on to something with the pillow cases. We have been staying in Q for the last 10 years. Come on down, or send some with a snowbird friend! Dona

RE: Quartzite is empty

most of the vendors come in after Christmas for the big opening day of Jan 1.There are a few here now, not much traffic in town. The local metal detecting clubs are active, hunting for gold and holding coin hunts once a month in the town park..right now its cold!!! it was 33f this am, looks like a cold week is in store for us! High's are expected to be middle 50's. Hoping this will not last to long. Dona

RE: Quartzsite Activities?

We want to go to the January RV show but don't want to move our trailer here in Gold Canyon. Are there any motels you'd recommend that we can check for vacancies? And we will bring our Rhino. There is really only one motel in Q. The Super 8. Nothing fancy. The Q.Yachtclub has old trailers for rent-I personally do not recommend-but the food at the yachtclub is good. An the old Stagecoach motel is open. Have seen a few cars there. I would stay in Blythe, lots of nice motels and only a 20 mile ride. Real grocery stores,a Kmart, and restaurants(including a Sizzler). Or, you could stay at Blue Water casino and resort in Parker, its 40 miles north of Q, indoor pool ,hot tubs and waterslide. Rooms are reasonable. Did I mention its 40 miles. But its a good choice. Dona

RE: To All Canadian Shaw Direct Subscribers.

we are in Quartzsite. Have the new 600 series hd receiver but the old LNB on the 75cm dish. Connected to shaw first try.(as in previous years) Service to the tv is excellent. We get all the channels we did in Ontario. Even the regular HD channels. We are not connected to a phone line here or back home. We did not upgrade to the new LNB. We spent 3 yrs in Desert Gold in Brenda, had no problems with our shaw service. Don't know what else to tell you. We are not having any problems. Dona
