We return, briefly, to the RTR, in order to experience Burning Van. We also visit the Big Tent, in Quartzsite, and the Nellie E Saloon, also known as the Desert Bar, before continuing north towards Lake Havasu City.
After almost six days boondocking in the desert, I was ready for some full hookups and a long shower, so I checked into an RV park in the Phoenix suburb of Goodyear. Join me for two days of breweries, saloons, butte climbs, and tacos in Tempe, Scottsdale and Apache Junction. We also drive the Apache Trail to Tortilla Flat.
This video, of course, takes place in its entirety in Quartzsite, most of it at the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous, or RTR.
This video is going to be slightly different. I’m not going to show you a different place every single day, or hour, or minute, for that matter. It is a true chronological account of my almost six days at the RTR. I did do different things every single day, but some of it is repetitive, as life often is.
Rubber Tramp Rendezvous
The RTR was overall a positive experience. I am just not the kind of traveler to stay put in the same place for days on end. I am restless and every two to three days I get the itch to hitch and move somewhere else. So if I got “bored” by my fourth day at the RTR, it was really me, not you. The rain didn’t help either, since on that day I had plans to leave already, and hangout with the Xcapers in Lake Havasu City. Will I do the RTR, or Quartzsite at all again in the future? Perhaps. Not next year though. For winter 2020 I have other plans. Until next week, I hope you enjoy the video. See you on the road!
I finally get to publish this video the way I originally intended, as a long documentary of our fabulous trip around the “Four Corners”, the area where Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico intersect, also epitomized by Hollywood as the “Wild West”
We decide to take a day off from our road trip around the Four Corners region, and relax at the Wahweap Resort near Page Arizona. We take a boat tour on Lake Powell, visit Antelope Canyon, and the Horseshoe Bend of the Colorado river.
