On Jan. 14, we drove to Quartzsite to Boomerville, which is an annual gathering of the Boomers (a BOF of the Escappees.). During the week there was over 200 rigs coming in and out of Boomerville.  We stayed the entire two weeks plus some.  This is a fun gathering with friends sharing, learning, laughing.  After the pictures I hope to include the list of activities for the week.

Boomers have chosen CARE in Livingston TX, as our charity of choice. During the two weeks we raised money to donate to CARE. Over the 14 days Escapees CARE donations were received by a rib dinner, 4 pancake breakfasts, two 50/50 drawings, baked potato dinner, recycled aluminum, just givin’ a donation, and of course the CARE Auction. This year Boomers BOF will proudly donate over $7,000 from all these efforts to
