Hi Clifford. Wayne said that the cost was $5 per day. Don't know that that information is official.

We just got word from one of the first folks there and he gave us details on how to find the area.

It is east of 95 on Kuehn. Kuehn is the first road south of I 10. The entrance is just across the street from the Gambler RV store which is about 60 yards east of 95.

This google map is pretty close to the spot: http://maps.google.com/?near=33.66102,-114.21600

Jim,

If you can help me get the right spot on a map, I will put one together and put on the main site.

For anyone who has never been to Quartzsite, here is one of the views you can look forward to. And this is just a fraction of it!

Hi Dale. I was modifying my post to include a Google map link when you posted. I hope that link will work for you.

We have several threads going on the rally.

I started a thread asking folks who are going to let us know. Not many folks have responded. That thread is: http://www.eaglesinternational.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=213

If you are going, let us know (not a requirement, more like an RSVP :D )

Clifford, I am not sure when we will get there, or what the parking arrangements are. If you go early, I am sure they will be glad to put you to work :D

My guess is that we will get there on Tuesday. We are in Indio for the FMCA rally. That will be done on Sunday. We usually hang around a day or two to de-compress.

BTW, the turnout here is pretty good. I was told that 1600 coaches are here. Given the economic situation that is pretty good. Having said that, I have been talking to the other vendors and they all agree, that the folks have a pretty good grip on their billfolds.
