January 2018 Field Trip – Quartzsite
January 17 @ 8:00 am - January 21 @ 5:00 pm
In January we will visit the extensive and varied
shows in Quartzsite, Arizona. Our timing is to
take advantage of the annual “Pow Wow”, hosted
by the Quartzsite Improvement Association, and
many of our members will meet there on the first
day of the Pow Wow, which is January 17 th in
order to have an opportunity to see more of the
shows while they are there.
Our PLS field trips are Saturday and Sunday. The time and loca-
tion of where we will meet will be posted as soon as it is avail-
We will be camping at the Plomosa Road BLM open camping
area, approximately 10 miles north of Quartzsite.
Directions coming from the West on I-10:
From the western exit to Quartzsite, turn left over the Inter-
state and right on Main Street.
At the traffic light turn left (north) on U.S. Hwy 95.
Drive 5.67 miles and turn right on Plomosa Road.
The BLM camping area is on the right (40617 Plomosa Road).
There is free camping in this area. We will be camping in an
area where there are other mineral clubs gathering on the
south side of Plomosa Road. Look for PLS or P/W signs for our
camping area. If you don’t see our signs, look for YOTMC
signs and ask for Dick Pankey who will know where our folks
are. More information at the monthly meeting. Of course, if
you are planning to stay in a motel in Blythe you should make
a reservation immediately.
