THE Trip, Life Round the Circle, Quartzsite, Arizona

Copyright 2011, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Life round the circle is informal, but, we did have one meeting, here is our wagon master, Robbie, giving us some "instructions".  Took him 10 minutes, without laughter and harassment, would have taken 5!

Every evening at 5ish, give or take a few minutes, there is a Happy Hour, goodies arrive at the table, ooos and ahhhs are heard as we taste the wonderful cook's donations.  We share lies and stories about our day, where we might travel next, where we have traveled in the past, maybe even what new goodie we discovered in town at the flea markets.

Dusk, finishing our Happy Hour gathering, preparing for campfire:

This MOCer has no trouble figuring out which Montana is his in a circle of 50 Montanas.  Believe me, this is a distinct advantage!  LOL

Yep, another campfire!  One rip roaring, blazing fire every single night!  The fella to the left with that funny white glare over his face, is wearing a clip on light contraption that goes on the brim of his (baseball type) hat.  Man and I found some in town, $3.00 each, purchased same.  I used it a few nights ago to aid in "middle of the night potty trips" for the fur kids. I am in love!  What a wonderful little invention!

So, besides telling lies and stories around the campfire, what else to the techy MOCers do??  Well, check Facebook, but, of course.  Eh, Mina??

Some of our members, Bob & Pam, were interviewed by the BBC for a future documentary special based on the book "American Nomads" by Richard Grant.  They also interviewed several other of the MOC couples, how much fun was this??

Life round the circle, laid back, full of friends, food and a good campfire, what more could you need or want??  Not much, because besides all this we have lies, stories, and great sunsets!

Looks like a truly wonderful time - complete with media coverage. So glad you were able to get there and experience it all.

Looks awesome, Carol! It's such a treat to see people wearing shorts, sleeveless tops, and sandals! I can't imagine how much fun something like this would be.

Laughter and good-natured harrassment - always so much fun within a like-minded group of folk. Perhaps you all have the pioneer spirit which makes you enjoy the RVing and camping so much -wagons round the camp fire and all that? :-)

This looks like so much fun, and that campfire looks so inviting....
