The 2023 Quartzsite Rally is scheduled for January 18-22. This year the rally hosts will be Andrew & Ellyn Meshel and Steve Conant. The official start is Wednesday, January 18th arrival. Location: Roadrunner BLM coordinates 114 13 43.67 W 33 35 01.47 N right at La Paz Valley Rd.
The event hosts have changed up the rally schedule since they had so many rigs arriving several days early for the event. For those with Jeeps or 4WD vehicles, we will be holding a two-day pre-rally with a 2-hour excursion each day to some interesting areas, 4-wheeling around Quartzsite. For those interested, they should arrive on Sunday, January 15th with the Jeeping on Monday the 16th and Tuesday the 17th.
As of 10/20/22 we have 76 rigs signed up and 20+ for the early 4×4 (Sunday 1/15/23) adventure. For those who are planning to attend but have yet to sign up, please do so by clicking on Klub Calendar as we will have to limit it to 150 rigs this year to accommodate the cooking logistics. We will be accepting donations to cover the cost and should have the recommended amount in December.
Since the 4×4 early event is going to be attended heavily we will be putting up the Newmar flags on Saturday. We hopefully will be able to split the Jeep group in half to make it more manageable on the trail.
Dinners will be provided on Wednesday thru Saturday night. We have secured two bands to perform out in the desert at our location. On Saturday, we will take an excursion to the Desert Bar for those who prefer to avoid the Big Tent on opening day.
In December we will have the Boondocking 101 info with directions and any useful local info as well as the seminar speakers to announce. There also will be a sign-up sheet for volunteers to help with all the things that make this a great time.
