The Next Quartzsite Rendezvous

The Next Quartzsite Rendezvous is January 8th through 22nd.   This will be the 3rd Annual Winter Rubber Tramp Rendezvous (RTR) in Quartzsite, Arizona.
Picture from

We call ourselves "rubber tramps" because we travel on tire rubber (vs. "leather tramps" shoe leather).  These get togethers are for those who travel and/or live in their vehicles -- RVs, Vans, Cars, Trucks -- or for those that want to.

Our first year we had 40, this past January there were about 80, maybe we'll double again in 2013.  I'm sure glad there's lots of big desert land available for dispersed camping in Quartzsite.  Overwhelmingly, folks have been kind, respectful, fun-loving, and interesting.  I sure do enjoy being with like-minded travelers.

Bob Wells is the organizer.  His web page on the RTR is at  He also recently published an ebook How to Live In a Car, Van or RV and started a blog.

Many attendees from last year's RTR did their own blog posts about the gathering, they are at the end of this page

I hope to attend the 2013 RTR with hubby John in an RV and one of my brothers and his wife on their Harley.  To say the least, I'm looking forward to it!
