I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.


Thank you for stopping by. Just to let you know, I'm still blogging but have moved to Geogypsytraveler. Hope you'll follow my adventures. Just click here.

Return from road trip to Quartzsite

Scroll down for My World Tuesday

Harcuvar Mts, Arizona

Thursday I drove to Brenda to visit Karen, Jim, Linda and Charlie.

Linda and Charlie have a motorhome that tows a cargo trailer that holds their little car. But when parked, the trailer becomes an awesome work shop. The girls have been busy making jewelry. (Click on FabGrandma to see) Yet they were ready to shop for more beads in Quartzsite.

Karen shopping for beads

So Friday we (minus Jim suffering with a cold) left early and walked and shopped for about six hours at Tyson Wells and Prospectors. We had so much fun and found many treasures.

My purchases

I restrained myself well as I have so much bead stock already. However the excitement was contagious. Jim’s cold might have also been contagious, or maybe it was the 35mph plus winds in the afternoon blowing dust up my nose. Either way by the end of the day I could barely breathe through my sore runny nose.

One of many rows of stalls at the Main Event, Quartzsite

Yet Saturday I found the energy to walk the Main Event’s rows of sellers with Ron, a friend living in Quartzsite. During January and February this town plays host to nonstop rock and craft shows and flea markets. There’s so much to see, and buy: rocks, salsa, gems, jewelry, junk, rocks, animal hides, jelly, collectibles of every kind, beads, gourds, rocks and...

Vicksburg flea market

Sunday after taking Ron out to breakfast for his birthday I went to Vicksburg flea market to visit Ed and Loretta. I’d also planned to return to Brenda before going home, but was feeling so lousy I called and cancelled. I’ll see them next week.

Nice to be home in my own bed. And I believe staying in all day has improved my health. Only tomorrow can tell.

I have a cold too. waa :(

But it looks like you had a fun trip. It would be interesting to see some of those desert markets. Stacey would have a blast getting materials for crafty projects.

Looks like a wonderful trip with good friends, I would have been tempted by all those beads too! Fab piccies too.

I hope you're soon feeling better. It sounds as if you had a good visit (except for the cold) with your friends and you got some good purchases.

It looks like you had a wonderful adventure. I'm glad you found some treasures, they look beautiful. If Bernie and I do make it to Arizona in the next month or two, I look forward to the beautiful treasures that can be found in the southwest. And perhaps we will have the pleasure of meeting you, if you are still in the area. I hope you feel better soon, our house has been like a medical ward the last month or so, we just keep passing around the yuck. Glad you are all comfy in your own home/bed.

I wish I'd done more craft fairs. The ones I did were fun and the people selling were wonderful. That bead store looks like my kind of place. I haven't been bead shopping nor have I made any jewelry in a long time.
