Winter 2014 Rubber Tramp Rendezvous in Quartzsite, AZ is officially over (thanks, Bob!). In the bag. Finito. Over for another year. Completo. Only the memories remain.
And what memories they are! New friends. For some: old friends. Nightly campfires under the very starry skies. Gorgeous sunsets. Meeting people in person we only knew online. Chili feed and soup pot dinners. Potatoes baked over coals. Checking out the rigs of other people. Learning to plug a tire or where to get your teeth cleaned across the border or how to install a solar panel. And the dogs. Oh the dogs. Dogs were everywhere!
Here’s just a few:
And then there were a couple of cats:
As much as I missed Dinah, the dogs took care of me. Some came and curled up on my lap without any coaxing; others just sat next to me with their foreheads on my leg. I know Dinah sent each one to me and her spirit ran the desert with them. I love that about animals – they know so much more than we do.
See you on the road somewhere!
