Wide open spaces to park your RV, fifth wheel or camper.

Park your rig in an RV park, on long term Bureau of Land Management lands for a free, or for 14-days at a time in one spot on fee-free federal land.

Al Madden, who had an investment company in California, worked on a gold mine venture for clients in Quartzite, Arizona during the 1970's.

Although this business venture was not successful, Al spent a lot of time in Quartzite, and had noticed that the local beer bar, "The Jigsaw", was for sale. It was a little building made of gray cement blocks, and as it looked on the outside, so it looked on the inside - not very appealing! However, Al must have seen some potential that others had missed and he bought it anyway with the help of his sons and family.
