Terry and I spent the last two weeks of January boondocking in the desert near Quartzsite, AZ with more than 147 RV’s, which belonged to the Boomer BOF of Escapees Club.

Boomers like to eat and have fun so the activities centered on those themes. We not only had Happy Hours with snacks, a pot luck dinner, a chili lunch, two wiener roasts, a wine and cheese tasting, pancakes in the morning fixed by Gretchen 2 but we even had pizza fixed in a clay oven and food fixed in Dutch ovens.

Evenings were spent by the fire circle with one night of singing and dancing to 50’s and 60’s songs. A traditional “Geraldine” contest was held.

Meetings were held on techy subjects such as solar power and boondocking. Women held special meetings on women’s issues. The writers had two meetings where we learned more about each other and practiced writing. Crafts, especially beading, was done by several women.

The weather was beautiful with glorious sunsets and even a rainbow after the one dust-settling shower.
