Oct 10, 2016 - Happy Thanksgiving

We are enjoying Las Vegas. The temperature is running 85-90 degrees during the days & high 50's at night. I have been spending a lot of time doing my bookkeeping so we haven't done too much exploring yet but I am finished now so will get started. Just wanted to take some time here to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. A time to reflect on our blessings, and having family & friends is one of ours.

Oct 8, 2016 - Las Vegas...here and gone

Well....we are in Las Vegas ---Yay....well, not really. We are not going to see anything, do anything...just, sigh, stay over night in a very overpriced RV park where we cannot even get our satellite to work. Oh, and for added insult to injury, one of our slides is dead..or it is on it's last leg. Coughing and spitting, opening only half way... Fortunately, my DH (dear husband) can get it manually closed so we should be fine till we get to Phoenix tomorrow. Yesterday, we stayed in Ely, Nevada and were able to spend the day with our good...

Oct 6, 2016 - Mobs - Las Vegas Baby

Monday Oct 3rd. We left the moisture of Lake Havasu on the #95 highway to enter the desert again. We are back into California going by the Mohave National Preserve Park & the highway #40 west into Nevada. We have been slowly climbing to a higher elevation of 2300 ft. Another agricultural check point between California & Arizona. I forgot to mention earlier the Border Patrol checkpoint in California. Apparently heading north on the highway everyone gets stoped for inspection. Illegal’s is the purpose this time. Also I don’t think I mentioned...

Sep 25, 2016 - Headed south to Las Vegas

We headed east on I-80 out of Reno to Fallon, Nevada and then turned south on US95 to Las Vegas. A little over 450 miles through the desert country. It was a long drive with few towns, Hawthorne, Tonopah and Beatty before arriving in Las Vegas on Saturday afternoon. We spent the night at Arizona Charlies RV Park on Saturday before moving over to Thousand Trails on Sunday for the next three weeks. We had reserved one of the rooms at the Worldmark resort in Las Vegas to surprise Cynthia for her birthday. Son Sean flew in for her birthday and...

Aug 30, 2016 - Las Vegas

It was a long hot day driving over mountains and across the desert. The roads at the beginning were excellent winding roads over wooded mountains. In the afternoon it was very hot (44C, 110F!) but when we reached Vegas it lived up to expectations. We were allowed to park the cars outside the front door of the hotel in a row and they attracted a lot of attention. Of course everything was huge, brash and noisy but we managed not to gamble. Dinner was in St Mark's Square as we were staying in the Venezia Hotel. We could see a beautiful blue...

Jun 15, 2016 - From Travis AFB, California to Las Vegas, Nevada

After a RV and Jeep tune-up, we finally got back on schedule and hit the road on May 7th, Julieann’s birthday. The Houston kids (as she calls our three daughters in Texas) made dinner reservations near where we were scheduled to stay for the weekend and our Hawaiian daughter & husband gave her a handful of money to spend. The restaurant was in a very nice resort right on the banks of Bass Lake. Of course, my GPS had a problem navigating through the mountains, but a kindly security guard escorted us to the restaurant – and we were only ½...

2016 Travels

May 26, 2016 - !!!!!!! CENSORED !!!!! Not for children

Downtown Freemont Street - some very strange people. There are a lot of homeless in Vegas, sleeping on the sidewalks just outside of the "Strip". The areas outside of the Strip are really seedy. A lot of prostitution. The pictures you see above are how some people make their money. Donations for a picture (or not).

Today we toured the Las Vegas Strip. Went into the Luxor Hotel but they did away with a lot of the Sphinx statues and the Nile River inside. disappointing. We also went to the Mob Museum. That was really interesting. Back to Sam's Town to the Buffet - great day.

May 17, 2016 - Surprise stop

Yesterday we made our way back to Kanab, Arizona and then to I15 instead of taking the fifth wheel thru the tunnel in Zion Canyon. We made a stop in St. George, Utah for lunch and to make a short visit to Camping World to pick up an over-the-air antenna that connects to the satellite. We had wanted to get one when we bought the satellite in Albuquerque, but they were out. Our weekend with no cell service, no wifi, and no local channels for news really pointed out the need for this addition. As it was we bought the last one at St. George. We...

Headed West 2016

May 10, 2016 - Hitchin' Post RV Park, Las Vegas, Nevada

Today was a travel day. We left Great Basin National Park and we are on our way to Sequoia National Park. We went west on US-50. We crossed Sacramento Pass (7145’) into Spring Valley, drove across the valley, and then headed south on US-93. US-93 goes down the valley. At the southern end, we crossed a low ridge into Lake Valley. The highway goes along the edge of the valleys in the foothills. The valleys and mountains are green from the spring rain and snowmelt. After driving 82 miles down US-93, we finally came to a town, Pioche. It is a...
