Oct 16, 2015 - And it gets Grease - y

(me again…..) Wayne was up and out early to take a coolish walk around the RV park, then on to be with the rally goers for breakfast. Not much was planned for that day by the rally, so we all were on our own. I was able to finish up my work by mid-day, so Wayne and I took a drive through Lake Havasu. It is a fascinating place as we learned later at one of the museums we visited on Saturday, but suffice to say for today we drove over the London Bridge. Yes, the actual London Bridge that the man who basically founded Lake Havasu had bought...

Oct 15, 2015 - Start of our Regional Rally

Me again……. Though there were lots of guys at the rally who love to geocache and play golf, however poor Wayne’s day was filled with shopping at WalMart and messing around with the RV. It was just too too hot for anything outside….we’re talking upper 90s. He even took a nap on the couch which was a huge shock for me to see him doze off. Lucky for me, I got my writing assignment wrapped up in the cool RV. Outside, it was blazing. At 4 o’clock we went for the Happy Hour that began the rally. There were about 50 people sitting at long tables...

Oct 14, 2015 - On to Lake Havasu

Me again……. Today was a travel day, too, but our destination was a wonderful one. The drive was again through miles and miles of rugged mountains carved in odd shapes and flat plains, sometimes covered in farmland, but usually just empty…hardly any bushes or cacti. When we turned off the 10 and headed north to Lake Havasu, we caught glimpses of vivid green vegetation and then realized we were following the Colorado River north as we saw the vivid blue water of this river that was full and lined with green grasses in the water, huge leafy...

Sep 12, 2015 - Lake Havasu City

/// Prospector's RV Resort Lake Havasu City, AZ Saturday - September 12, 2015 We had a low of 48 degrees overnight in Williams. Breaking camp was at a leisurely pace. We departed the Railside RV Ranch at 9:45 A.M. The drive out of the mountains was very pleasant. Coasted downhill for many miles. The road conditions today were mostly good. Traffic was light and there was no wind. We took just one rest break at an I-40 Rest Area near Yucca. The final leg of today's trip into Lake Havasu City was easy enough. We arrived at the Prospector's RV...

Jun 2, 2015 - Start

Got a late start and hit a lot of wind. So we decided to spend the night in Lake Havasu and run some errands in the morning. From here we go to Prescott to visit Keith Rosewitz whom Vince has known since 8th grade. We're not sure after that -need to look at a map.

Apr 30, 2015 - Las Vegas, CA - Duck Creek RV Resort

4/30 – 5/1/15 We headed off to Las Vegas, Duck Creek RV Resort. Stopped at the Hoover Dam for the 12 noon Dam Tour, $30/pp. It was worthwhile just to go into the tunnel and take a pic from the Dam vent. The tour of the power house was cool too…17 turbines generating power. The water level is the lowest it’s ever been. The tunnel for the spillway water was huge. The weather was hot…mid 90’s. We left the dam at 2 pm and arrived at Duck Creek around 3 pm. Checked in for 2 nights. It was still hot even with the air condition running. Stayed...

Apr 28, 2015 - Lake Havasu City, AZ

4/28 – 4/29/15 We left the Adobe RV park in Golden Valley, AZ, and headed to the Blue Beacon in Kingman for a truck wash. It’s been awhile and we ran into a lot of bees. There were 3 trucks ahead of us and it took about 45 minutes before we were done. We took Hwy 40W, 95S to Lake Havasu City. Arrived at Lake Havasu State Park for our 2 nights. The temp was at 90 degree when we reached the park. We headed out for a pizza dinner at Papa Leones at the English Village near the London bridge. It was 90 degrees outside and after walking left...

2015 RV Adventure

Mar 13, 2015 - Bluegrass on the Beach

We headed back to Lake Havasu City for the third time this trip and Bluegrass on the Beach. We have been to a few bluegrass festivals but never for more than one day and have never taken our RV to a festival. We were excited to do that and excited because Corinne was going to drive over from San Diego to join us for the weekend. We arrived on a Tuesday before the Festival started on Friday, and were a bit apprehensive about where we would park, how were we going to save a tent site for Corinne and just what lay before us. But we’ve never...

Crawford's Trip 2014

Mar 6, 2015 - Lake Havasu City, Arizona

3/6 – 3/8 It was a 71-mile drive (SR95) to Lake Havasu State Park for the Bluegrass on the Beach bluegrass festival. When we arrived, David and Dianne had reserved a spot for our house right next to theirs. We pulled in, set up and made it to the first 10:00am performance. The festival was excellent. Not only did we spend time with our good friends, we also listened to some great bands including Spinney Brothers, Monroe Crossing, Adkins and Londermilk, Junior Sick and Rambler’s Choice, Blue Highway, Sonoran Dogs, Nu-Blu, Karl Shiflett, Big...

Mar 3, 2015 - London Bridge!

Parked in Havasu City we've had a few quiet and a few busy days (well, retired busy!). The rain kept things cool, but we managed to ride our bikes on Monday and Tuesday. We could only get two nights in one spot at this park, so we had to move within the park this morning, just a lane over, but now we have a beautiful view of the Colorado River and mountains of California. Monday we rode to get various bits to do some repairs. Tuesday we did a big ride, to London Bridge! Yes, London Bridge. Lake Havasu City was around way back but really...

Winter West

Mar 1, 2015 - We've moved again!

Rather than staying in Quartzsite or wandering back to Yuma, as planned, we decided to head an hour or so north to Lake Havasu. It was a quick pack up this morning, not only because the wind had been so strong that we had packed all the outside stuff away the day before, but because there was heavy rain on the way. Highway 95 has washes that go across the road and could get flooded from the rain, quite common out here in the desert areas. We did time it well. Again Michelle drove, as we went from desert to multi-coloured mountains, scenery...
