First Day of the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous!

004

  The Rubber Tramp Rendezvous is a great place for new RVers to learn everything about fulltiming while staying within a budget. The RTR, which is held on BLM land on the outskirts of Quartzsite, Arizona, lasts for two weeks with seminars almost everyday on a variety of subjects. For experienced RVers and van dwellers it’s a wonderful place to hang out, lend a hand if needed and catch up on what everyone’s been doing since the last RTR.

This is the fifth RTR and the first one that we’ve really attended. We did catch the last days of the 2013 RTR where we met many fulltime RVers and van dwellers so we’re looking forward to visiting with old friends and meeting all of the new guys this year.

I probably won’t be posting much for awhile but please check back in a couple of weeks. :-)

    1. Missing you Cyndi! We're camped close to the official fire ring, near Nelda and Jerry, Sandy from Canada and Lesa. There are so many people here in so many different types of homes - even a little wooden vardo and a classic GMC. I'll try to take a lot of pictures.

    1. Quartzsite in itself is an interesting experience. Attending the RTR makes it even better so if you do get a chance to travel this far west some winter don't pass it up. :-) The people are wonderful, super friendly, and brimming with stories and information.

    1. Have you seen the pictures on the forum? There are a couple of different posts. Cyndi has also gathered together blog posts of RTR attendees who have put pictures on their blogs.

      We're having a ton of fun! It's an incredible experience being with such a large group of like-minded people!

    1. I've been thinking about putting a new post up but that's as far as I got! :-D I can't figure out how we're staying so busy when we're not really doing anything. There will be one or two new posts in a few days - I promise!
