2nd Annual Quartzsite Convergence a Success for Xscapers
LIVINGSTON, Texas- February 2017
Xscapers, a lifestyle group of Escapees RV Club, just wrapped two weeks of socializing and networking in Quartzsite, Arizona. Focused on the needs of the working-aged RVer, Xscapers attracted more than 70 rigs, and nearly 200 people, to Dome Rock. The event included discussions, seminars, campfires and potlucks.
Founded in 2015 as support for the working RVer, Xscapers has grown to more than 3,500 members. The Quartzsite gathering in 2016 attracted around 100 RVers. That number more than tripled for 2017, thanks to word-of-mouth excitement of the group’s members. The Quartzsite Convergence is one of several events organized for Xscapers. Each convergence includes social opportunities, such as campfires, potlucks and group excursions, in addition to networking opportunities, such as discussion panels and informal seminars.
This year’s event included several group outings to local restaurants, a costume-themed farewell party, group hikes, group off-road adventures, outdoor movie nights and nightly campfires hosted by various attendees. Throughout the two weeks, Xscapers members shared their expertise with each other through informal demos and discussions. During the introduction meeting, attendees shared their experiences as remote-working RVers and enjoyed networking. Later in the week, Kali, of The Freedom Theory, and Christie, of Spot the Scotts, hosted a discussion for those who want to improve their YouTube channels. Relevant to boondocking RVers, Erik, of LivinLite.net, and Gary, of PauHana Travels, shared their knowledge of solar panels and energy storage with the group. Camille, with More Than A Wheelin’, conducted a demonstration of Instant Pot cooking, while Bill, of Trinkles on Tour, opened his rig to attendees for two different classes on photography. Several impromptu discussions on drones, mobile connectivity, and more rounded out the informational offerings of this convergence.
