This week I became aware of a price increase at Sky Mountain. One of our members made a reservation and found that the price had increased. Many of us made a reservation when we checked out and were not aware of the increase and I wanted to let you know so that you would not be surprised when you show up. Bill and I emailed back and forth and he confirmed that the monthly rate has gone from $660 to $750 and is not taxed. The daily and weekly rates have gone up as well and you will have to add a 13.5625% motel tax. You can see these rates on the website.
This is not necessarily a deal breaker, but I think you should be informed so you can plan. In fact, I went ahead and confirmed my reservation and therefore still plan to be there this year. As always, you can call, text, or email me. For specific questions as to rates please contact Sky Mountain, or refer to the rate sheet on the website.I hope to see some of ya’ll in Lajitas/Big Bend.
I have some information on the Quartzsite 2022 tag-a-long. We will be at Black Rock RV in Brenda on Jan 22 (check in) to Jan 29 (check out) (7 days). Their number is 928-927-4206.
Then on Jan 29, we will leave there and drive the 90 or so miles to Yuma to check into West Wind RV Resort. We plan to stay 9 days and check out Feb 7. The number is 866-440-2992. Ask about the 1/2 price special and use my name to be near the group. They said to pass along that anyone interested should call soon. I’m not sure how long West Wind will have the special. This is a tag-a-long so these dates are just what some of us are doing, but you can set any dates you want.
Call or text me if you want more info, but please do not delay and miss out.
After the show ended in Quartzsite, three rigs headed down to Yuma Arizona. Those rigs were the Kerchers, Hoovers, and Merriman. We stayed at West Wind RV and golf resort.
Southern Arizona is a popular destination for snow birds and Yuma is no exception. This year however, due to covid, there weren’t as many. For one thing, the Canadians were not able to come down due to travel restrictions. We enjoyed some food and fellowship, as well as the flea market. We enjoyed about 5 days there and headed for home.
Well, another Arizona tag along is in the books. Five rigs camped at Black Rock RV in Brenda Arizona. Brenda is located just off I 10 about 12 miles east of Quartzsite. Those who attended were the Kerchers, Hoover’s, Marrs, Merriman, and Stowes.
We started out in Brenda Arizona at Black Rock RV. Brenda is about 12 miles East of Quartzsite where the annual RV show is held. The show went on despite covid, but the crowds were way down. The plus side was that parking was a lot easier than usual.
While we were there, something unusual happened. It rained! Actually it rained a lot. So much that on the last day of the show, the big tent got flooded! I didn’t know it even rained in the desert!
The RV show in Quartzsite Arizona is set for January 22nd to Jan 30th 2022 according to the website quartzsitervshow.com. Some of us have made reservations for the 22nd to the 29th. If you are interested, call soon so you can get a site close to the group. We are at Black Rock in nearby Brenda. Call 928-927-4206. Jane is the group coordinator, but I think anyone can help you. You will have to put up a deposit, but you can get most of it back if you cancel outside of 30 days. Be sure to review the cancellation policy. As always, be sure to tell them you are with the Traveling Supremes. Also be aware that this is a tag-a-long, so come and go as you wish.
Some of us will go on to Yuma, so I will send additional information in a day or two.
I am pleased to announce that we are planning a tag-a-long to Lajitas, TX just outside of Big Bend National Park. Please check out the posting under “Rallies ” > “Upcoming rallies”. Or, just click here: https://travelingsupremes.com/2020-big-bend-np/
There you will find the information that you need to make your reservation. The days will be warm so the activities will include sightseeing and meals, but no strenuous hiking. The evenings should be pleasant. They also have a pool and clubhouse. If you have questions, call Susan or myself.
PS: For all you eagle eyed RVers, the motor home shown on the Maverick Ranch RV Park home page is…. wait for it…. a Travel Supreme select!
Hello Supremes,I hope that all of you are well. This year is almost gone and most of us are glad to see it go. I look forward to better times in 2021 and hope that our personal and family lives will be more normal. Along with that, maybe our traveling and camping can resume. Upcoming events include New Years at Colfax campground Dec 28 thru Jan 2. There are 4 rigs going at this time so it will be more of a tag-a-long with no planned activities due to social distancing.
Also, there are 5 rigs going to Quartzsite AZ arriving on January 16, then going on to Yuma after the show. This is also a tag-a-long with no planned activities other than fun and fellowship.Also planned for 2021 is our annual trip to Chama. Official rally dates are August’s 16 thru August 21 but as you know, Chama is more of a come and go as you please event.
If you have questions about these events or if you would like to host an event in 2021, you can call, text, or email me.Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.
We are returning to Quartzsite Arizona in 2021. This will be a tag along with no agenda other than fun! We are staying at Black Rock RV Village in Brenda, AZ, some 12 miles East of Quartzsite. Check in Jan. 16th and check out Jan. 25, 2021. Call 928-927-4206 and talk to Kelly. She said to tell her to put you close to the Hoovers. Be sure to ask her to explain the cancellation policys. The Cafe is open and the shuttle will be running. After Quartzsite we may go down to Yuma, but more on that later. For more info, you can call Jim. You can also search Quartzsite 2021 RV show.
Hello Supremes, we have a time and place for our annual New Year’s gathering! We will be at the Colfax Recreation Area RV park and Campground. The dates are: check in – Dec. 28th and check out – Jan. 2nd 2021. Call the park at 318-627-2640 and talk to Nolan. As always, be sure to tell them that you are with the Traveling Supremes. The good news is that they honor the National Park senior pass known as Golden age or America the Beautiful Senior pass. Full price is $35.34 per night and $17.67 with the senior pass. Price includes tax. More info later. A special thanks to Linda Brian for her help!
Jim has reserved sites and they were placed on his credit card so if you are planning on going, please call early and secure your site. Many of us camp there several times throughout the year and enjoy the building which faces the Red River. The town is small but close to Natchitoches and Alexandria. Plans are being made to secure a tour of the Locks and Dam located behind the park and for the Kent House located in Alexandria. I’m looking at a few other options in the area so we hope to have some fun with our special New Year’s Day meal.
Again, a special thanks to Jim Hoover for securing the location.
Traveling Supreme Natchitoches Rally, Oct. 29, 2020 – Today was the last day of the rally in this historic town. Our excursion today was to Robeline to tour the remaining house of Fort Jesuplocated about 22 miles from Natchitoches. It was constructed in 1822 to protect the United States border with New Spain and return order to the Neutral Strip. The fort was in operation until 1846 and the US continued control of the abandoned fort site until the privatization of the site in 1869.
After the tour and lunch on our own, we met with Bud and Rosalyn Odom at the meeting room. They were on their way home from Houston.
Again, a special thanks to Susan Kercher for her work on this rally and Marie Moreau for the tours.
