For 5 years we called a 30 foot Holiday Rambler 5th wheel home; it was comfortable and well furnished – unfortunately it was “cramped quarters” for the 3 of us! In February 2013 we purchased a 1994 34 foot Travel Supreme 5th wheel – old but gorgeous! We now have a desk, a roomy bathroom and a beautiful china cabinet/entertainment centre! At last we’re not tripping over each other or the dog!
We live on the desert in Quartzsite, Arizona for 6 months of the year and back in Canada for the other 6 months. Our home base is the Calgary area in Alberta; our doctors are here, our mailbox is here and we have a daughter and granddaughters here. We spend the summer in British Columbia where we have a son, his family and many “snowbird” friends.
Life on the desert is awesome! no sand, no dunes, just lots and lots of gravel, bush, and sunshine!! We stay in the BLM Long Term section, only $180 for 6 months – water, garbage disposal and sewer dump included! Such a deal! We are within the town limits and close to many of the vendors for which Quartzsite is famous!
We are in a group of 8 units on the desert, some Canadian, some American. A better group of friends you just couldn’t find!
