Our Quartzsite Adventure Continues…

One storm after another has dampened our work days, plenty of rain and the wind has been strong. They shut down the big tent on Thursday at noon, we are situated right out the main gate and it is so amazing watching the big tent and some of the smaller ones sway with the wind. We are praying that they all hold up, since the wind is suppose to get even worse throughout the day and into the evening. Without a doubt, that was the worse storm we had ever experienced in Arizona. The wind howled, moaned and the gusts just about blew us over. There was some damage around the area, port-a-johns knocked over, plenty of puddles everywhere, and a small tent was knocked down right on our food trailer.

Even though the weather may have dampened our work days, it did give us more shopping time which is always a treat! We found a few of the things we had been looking for and all at some really great bargains.

Our first great find was our flagpole and holder. We have been wanting a flagpole for our NASCAR events but have not been able to find the right holder, well, we found it. The holder slips into our receiver on the rig and the flagpole fits into it, no strain on the ladder and no having to drive over the holder for support. Looking forward to using it in California, our first NASCAR event for the season.

Then, ever since our checkerboard chairs had to be returned due to them fading, they actually turned green instead of the black, we have been looking to replace them. We found the lounge chairs we had been looking for and at a great bargain. They are not in the checkerboard but we were able to find a few bonus chairs that are comfortable and of course, our décor preference and them all being UV protected is a plus.

We even found a few things we weren’t looking for, a few shirts, one of my shirts is a great design, we had them put the crystals on the states we have visited and the others can be added with an iron. Such a cute idea! We also found some jewelry and some absolutely wonderful back supports which we can use on our couch, or on our new chairs, or while we drive. We are just about shopped out except one thing, there is a massage pillow that we have our eyes on but they want $40 each, we would want two, that needs a few days of consideration before finally making that decision. These pillows have 4 different settings and is almost like a massage chair, only it is just a pillow. We decided to get one, we are sharing it and it is well worth the price, for every ache or pain this pillow can be placed on it and oh what a feeling!

One more day at work then we will be heading out of Quartzsite and onto new adventures. It's been nice to roll out of bed and right into work and we will write a full review of our experience in a few days.
