Well - it was a fun week even though the weather was abnormally cool, hey no shoveling snow and no rain even. Here are a couple more photos to prove it happened. Had hoped for more Urals to make it but those that can, do. Had a fun time and met really neat folks here. Thanks for starting this Brian, hope it continues and grows! Also THANK YOU to the welcoming YARC Crew, one and all!

Stories were told and bubbly was consumed at last night's YARC campfire.

We nearly had to send up the 'search drones' for the second time!...but after a couple of tries the 'out-of-towners' made it to YARC and brought beer, champagne, and food! We hope and expect them to camp with us out here on BLM land next year...

And, I learned a new term for dog discipline....POWPOW!

lol....hey, you hadda be there....

But friendships were made, wood was burned, stars and constellations were observed, and laughter was the evening's theme.

Maybe next year we can double the attendance!

Sadly the week ended today for us but we have new friends and enjoyed the rides, camaraderie, food and beverages not to forget the YARC campfires so all is good. For any other Urals this first Quartzsite gathering continues as I type this. As always UDF rules, here is a photo to prove it "happened" from a rest stop west of Sun City (Phoenix area).

Howdy Ron,
I think your New "Santa's Sleigh " lettering and your awesome clean 2014 would make a great contribution to the SS Calendar. Maybe even Santa too. The sand (?) color of your rig is beautiful. Forgot to ask you what that color is called and was it custom ordered by original owner ?

Howdy All,

I want to thank Brian for setting the Quartzsite gathering up and for showing us around the area. Thanks to Ron and Shirly and to Tim and Janet for attending oh not to forget Milo was also here.

I enjoyed meeting everyone sorry we didn’t have more time to spend together hopefully we will be able to do it again in the future.

Thank you Brian for putting it all together. You ain't right...but you are right about Quartzsite having a lot to offer for a gathering. Safe travels Man and a pleasure to meet you.
Same with Dave and Donna, Ron and Shirley. Great to meet and be with you. Wish I was there for the "w@$# riding lesson" and to meet Milo. Got a few bumpy rides in myself but I still prefer the back country and secondary paved roads. Went over 1000 km out and back.

I was down there just before ya'll came, for the ham radio get together. Met Brian and discovered I needed to pay closer attention to this board - didn't even know this might happen. Next year I'll come later or stay longer. Hope to meet you all then.

Hope we can have a semi local meet and greet, maybe in Wickenburg for biscuits and gravy at the "Spur". Hoping for a fast recovery from your surgery. I will also touch base with Terry.

Thanx Santa!
Let’s do get together at Spurs I go there quite often.
Are you planning on going to the Russian Festival on 3/3? They desperately need a Ural presence there.
I was going to go but y’know how that is going. Terry is having some problems too.

That’s a great time to get out of Texas. I’ll keep watching to see if it gets put together.
