Annual Bash Part 1 - Quartzsite

January 12 – 19, 2018



Come join in on some desert fun with the Xscapers group in Quartzsite, Arizona for our largest annual event. It is the perfect opportunity to meet some fellow Xscapers and working aged RVers. Each year, we converge in Q to enjoy free boondocking, relaxed educational discussions and social opportunities.

Convergences are designed to be conducive to those working on the road. When possible, activities will take place in the afternoons and evenings so that you may get your work done in the morning time. The atmosphere will be very relaxed and while there will be a schedule of events, times and activities are subject to change. There are usually several impromtu activities added throughout the week.

This event will take place 1-week prior the the Quartzsite Big Tent Show. On the 19th, we will be moving about an hour away to American Girl Mine in order to carry on the fun and retain cell service for those who work. Want to know more about the show? Visit: http://www.quartzsitervshow.com/

*Directions and GPS coordinates will be provided upon registration, along with more details regarding the event.*
