Our (HAPPY!) rock story

Just a quick reminder, we have started a YouTube channel. It’s certainly in its infancy stage for sure and will be going through some growing pains but go check it out and we would appreciate it if you would subscribe while there. Here is a link. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWqRmO1rO4cu3rFANF1iG6Q

Hey, it’s free to go take a look and it’s free to simply hit that subscribe button so please show your support.

We have a fun little story to share.

As you may already know back on November 14th 2012 we hit the road fulltime. We left Grants Pass Oregon and weaved ourselves through Reno, Hawthorne, Beatty, Death Valley, Pahrump, and Bullhead City Nevada before heading to Lake Havasu Arizona and then to Quartzsite Arizona mid-December.

We actually boon-docked just 50 yards from the spot we sat this year.

During our stay in 2012 we fooled around with rocks doing other things than making fire pits. We made our Christmas card pictures there and we did the word (HAPPY!) between two cactus.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!!

Each year that we return to Quartzsite we go check on that (HAPPY!) and to our amazement it has been there every single year.

We made this HAPPY out of rocks in Dec. 2012. The New Years is gone but the happy stayed in place for 2 years LOL!!

If you have ever been to Quartzsite you know that there are tons of fire pits that have been made from rocks and then abandoned and it never fails that when the next group comes along it seems natural to dismantle existing pits and make your own even if it’s just a few yards away LOL!!

We made this "HAPPY" art out of stone 3 years ago during our 1st visit to Quartzsite and it's still here. The little things in life that make us smile.

Every year we go back we halfway expect our (HAPPY!) to be gone meaning it was probably taken to make a fire pit but it just lives on and this year was no different.

At one point Diane disappeared and when a did a quick scan on the area I saw her walking off with a few of my hand tools headed towards the cactus where our (HAPPY!) was located. A bit later I walked over myself and found her on her hands and knee’s weeding LOL!!! Who the heck weeks out in the middle of absolutely nothing. Well Diane does of course.

Anyway, we get a kick out of our rock story and thought you might as well.
