Starts with "Q"
We'll take a road trip this round.

Interesting to use this as I just finished reading Nomadland and QUARTZSITE AZ featured prominently.
I never knew about the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous or the expression vandwellers until I read this book.

According to Wikipedia:
Quartzsite is a popular recreational vehicle camping area for winter visitors with tourism being the major contributor to Quartzsite's economy. 
The Rubber Tramp Rendezvous, an annual gathering of vandwellers, takes place in January. 
Nine major gem and mineral shows, and 15 general swap meet shows are very popular tourist attractions, attracting about 1.5 million people annually, mostly during January and February.

Quartzsite is the burial place of Hi Jolly (Hadji Ali), an Ottoman citizen of Greek-Syrian parentage, who took part in the experimental US Camel Corps as a camel driver.

Quartzsite is also the site of Joanne's Gum Museum, which is open to the public and features a large collection of gum wrappers from around the world.
