Poor Man’s Paradise
Firstly as city life continues to deteriorate many Americans are searching for a Poor Man’s Paradise. Secondly Quartzsite Arizona might be the best of all. Details in Poor-Man’s-Paradise-Bob Davis Podcast 1120.
A friend and I were discussing this point recently as an illustration of different cultural crossroads.
Certainly Q-Town is a cultural crossroads.
Back In The Day
But these days are not like the bad old days of the late seventies, early eighties and nineties when hundreds of thousands of RV people crowded into the campgrounds around this southwestern town back in the day.
Think Jersey Shore
Accordingly in those days the streets were as crowded in winter as the Jersey Shore in summer.
In light of that kind of traffic these days it’s tame.
In Poor-Man’s-Paradise-Bob Davis Podcast 1120 I’ll explain the most compelling evidence why it’s no insult to refer to Quartzsite as a poor man’s paradise.
Life Is More Expensive
For one thing the perks and extras in those places would fuel steaks and wood for campfires for all of us out here for weeks.
Snow Birds and Nomads
In addition snow birds and nomads would not be able to experience the true cultural crossroads this place is.
Another key point is there is a history to this place.
As a matter of fact there’s a museum in town that tells the story very nicely going back to the frontier days.
But in the same fashion I am enthralled by the people who run the businesses here in town…
And the new friends we meet along the way.
Finally I get a lot of questions from listeners and subscribers about Quartzsite.
For one thing they want to know what it’s like.
And they want to know how to prepare for it if they come down here.
Although helpful I am not going to provide that kind of content.
Because I think people should jump in and see what it’s all about for themselves.
Experiences May Vary
To put it differently your experiences might vary.
Certainly some see the dark side.
Thriving Temporary Town
However I see a thriving town thrown up every year to serve campers…
And to have fun too.
Isn’t that what it’s all about?
