Quartzsite hazard!

While driving through a business district in Quartzsite yesterday, I saw a very large tow truck.  This truck was backed into a brushy ravine.  Very curious...what was he doing?

The RV below was sunk up to the rear axle in the gravel.
This is why the tow truck was located on the edge of the large arroyo that runs through the center of Quartzsite.  I could hardly believe that ANYONE was foolish enough to drive an RV into the arroyo which is a chasm of unstable round gravel.
That man in the center hooked a cable from the tow truck to pull the motorhome out!

The tow truck pulled the RV free of the gravel so that the RV could get back to the road!


  1. Do you think it might be someone who is new to RV's or didn't know about the loose gravel? Bet they won't do that again!

  2. They were lucky they could get it out without any damage.

  3. Yeah, I had no idea that area would be a problem for my rig. Hahaha - just kidding. Doesn't it look like The Palms? I don't know why I'm laughing, though, I've gotten stuck in the sand twice, but luckily have been able to dig myself out. Sometimes it just looks like we'll be fine - until the wheels are dug in and it's too late. Poor guy, that cost him $$$, but it was a lesson learned.

  4. wow! I am sure those owners were glad to be out of the mire.

  5. Ironic--we stopped by the show yesterday & saw two tow trucks pulling a semi out of the wash! Sheesh--it's gravel, people! I'm sure the towing companies in town don't mind a bit, though!
