The Julian campout was a great successas you can see by the accompanying article and pictures. A huge thankyou to Roslynand Ronfor coordinating this campout.  A few RV Wheelers plan to head to Quartzite, AZ for the annual RV Show in January, 2022.  For more information, please see the insert in this month’s newsletter.

Recent Events

Hugely Successful Julian Campout
June 21-25
Slide Show )

Seventeen RV Wheelers spent four wonderful days together in the beautiful forested setting at Pinezanita RVPark, just outside of the quaint mountain town of Julian. Three new members, Debbie  Aitkens and Mike and Dionne Wilson, added so much to the group’s camping experience. Everyone enjoyed our delicious potlucks and breakfasts, our evening campfires and bean bag baseball game.The guys beat the gals-but not by much! Rematch next time!

We couldn’t have hoped for better weather and the spacious, shady RV sites offered plenty of room togather to bird watch, work on a puzzle, play Mexican Train dominoes and sit and schmooze! Breakfast highlights included the fresh orange juice that Dionne and Mike squeezed on site, plus bagels, lox and cream cheese. Dionne’s Panzanella (bread salad) was a big hit and the recipe is featured in the new Campout Cooking section of the July newsletter (click here)! Ann brought fresh zucchini from her LWV gardenand Debbie was so kind to BBQ the large unclaimed squash for us to share the last night! It was so good! Thank you to everyone who cooked / brought such great potluck items! 

Some Wheelers headed into Julianto visit an historic cemetery, the Julian Mining Co., the California Wolf Center, to shop,to have lunch or that famous Julian apple pie! Some went to nearby Lake Cuyamaca to hike and picnic. Schmoozing!

We got back together in the evenings for two great potlucks and nightly campfires. Thanks to Ron, our own RV Wheelers fire master,and to all who brought wood. Richard popped us fresh popcorn over the fire and Roslyn introduced the group to chocolate stuffed marshmallows. Yum!



Welcome Laguna Woods RV Wheelers Website ...

The RV club was formed in 1966 as the “Leisure Wheelers” by a small group of Leisure World residents who wanted to enjoy some camping and socializing with other residents and who all enjoyed the same things.  Some were still working, but most were retired and had recreational vehicles of some type.  Some had already hung up their keys, or were just interested in the possibility of RV’ing. In 1969 a lot to park those RVs was made available, and that certainly became a great selling point with potential buyers, along with the golf and all the other amenities

With members having decades of experience and knowledge, another important focus of our club is education and support. Through articles in our newsletter, educational programs, and the experience of many members, one can learn invaluable information to assist in the RV'ing lifestyle.  Besides camping, we have a wide range of social events throughout the year with many opportunities to make new friends.

Quartzite January, 2022
 
A few RV Wheelers plan to head to Quartzite, AZ for the annual RV Show in January, 2022. Quartzsite RV Show is the largest RV show in the world. This regional event is set to start on Saturday, January 22, 2022. A few years ago some of us stayed at the Rice Ranch RV Park which is located directly across the street from the main tent at 55 East Kuehn Street, Quartzite, AZ. Full hook-up rate is $45.28 including tax – a one night, nonrefundable deposit is required, and everyone must make their own reservation (the sooner the better). We plan to arrive by Thursday 1/20/2022. Call Sean for reservations: office (928)927-4782.

People love browsing the wares of over 425 vendors who cater to the RV enthusiast. From quirky kitchen items to RV bedding and the latest RV camping gadgets, the Quartzsite RV Show brings products to thousands of RV enthusiasts every day.

As a gathering place for winter snowbirds, the show is a cornerstone of Quartzsite’s winter snowbird scene. Over one dozen different service bays on the show grounds provide needed repairs and upgrades for
attendees.

In 2021, Covid 19 protocols were in place, including one-way aisles and mandatory face coverings for exhibitors, attendees and show staff. We don’t yet know what 2022 will look like.
