We (and I say “we” loosely) checked out some mines. It’s loosely, since they were up boulder fields and I stayed down and waited for White Elephant to return. On one, he said he only flipped his bike 360 in the air twice and never made it to the top. Later, we found nice fully-furnished bachelor pads and I settled right in.
Today, the golf course turned up in the middle of a ride. We have the clubhouse facilities area (e.g. the outhouse), the gallery area and Hole 1 and the “green.” In Kuwait and Saudi Arabia we called these the browns. Of course there, we actually poured oil on them to create asphalt for putting. I think here with 65-yard holes and no way to actually putt, it’s a one-club course. Allan says a 9 iron is the proper club.
So what area are you camped at? In an LTVA or 14 day section? I am ashamed to say that I live pretty close to there and have yet to camp in Quartzsite. We have done a few backcountry trips in the KOFA and have certainly enjoyed that but would enjoy seeing some other areas as well
My friend and I are talking (sometimes that's as far as my trips go) about riding the Peace Trail or the southern California BDR. Anyway you folks have a good time down there.
Well, my riding buddies took off today. Mr and Mrs White elephant headed north to Lake Havasu and AllanB headed south to the Kofa. I started off looking at some yard art. Later, I checked out some mines and just rode around in some washes to improve my sand and gravel-riding skills. I’m pleased to report that I only dropped the bike 4 times and have progressed from a 1 to a 2 on a 1-10 scale. Tomorrow, I head south toward Yuma.
