Yesterday afternoon, I attended the first ever Blog-Fest here on Plomoso Road just north of Quartzsite. I expected around ten bloggers, but from what I hear, there were over 50 in attendance. Fantastic turn out for the first event. Even Pheebs was having a great time wandering around meeting other dogs.Jerri from Just Wanderin' and Sandie from Where are the Dixons Today organized this event and I’m sure there are a lot of people thankful they did. Great job.
There is Al and Judy of Travels with Emma. I have followed her blog since starting my travels and wanted to me her but didn’t get the job done. Maybe another time.
I only knew a few, but was glad to meet them in person. Even though I couldn’t remember names very well, it was just great to talk with travelers such as myself. We all seemed to have something in common and that made it so easy to make conversation. Even Al from Travel With The Bayfield Bunch loosened up and had a good time with the crowd. May have to change his handle from “blabberfingers” to “blabbermouth”. Just kidding Al.
I did get to meet Sassy of Sassy’s on ‘Da Road fame. Such a petite woman that carries a 2006 Harley Davidson, Heritage Softail Classic in her class A toy hauler. She’s showing me her roadrunner decal.
Pheebs was smitten with Yuma. She kept wanting him to jump and play, but of course I had Yuma on a tight leash today. Not going to make the same mistake twice. Al finally gets to meet the famous Yuma.
Everyone was having such a great time, the event lasted long after 3pm. I was so tired from being up all night, I left at 4pm and people were still mingling and making plans for getting together at campfires later.
Great event! See you next year.
