Quartzsite, AZ

Not in Kansas anymore
Is the "Rock Capital of the World" and a winter haven for RVers.  I am told that in January and February over a million snowbirders descend upon this small town in the desert for the two month show and swap meet.  In addition to warm, sunny weather, there is a lot of BLM land where you can dry camp free for two weeks.

The vendors are just beginning to arrive but it is obvious that this area will become one gigantic flea market by the end of the year.  If you like rockhounding, boondocking, off-highway riding, and shopping, then this is the place for you.

At first I thought you wrote "snowboarders" and I was wondering just what kind of winter you had planned :-)

The only snow I hope to see would be on the top of a mountain in the distance or when I go to it, not have it come to me.
