Feb 22, 2017 - Mount Charleston Lunch

We picked Betty up at her home this afternoon and drove back to Mount Charleston, We have visited the area many times and always loved it. Mount Charleston is named for nearby Mount Charleston, the highest point in Clark County. The town is known for its hiking trails, and for the Mount Charleston Lodge, a rustic hotel.

Today we picked up my sister, Betty, and drove to visit Mount Charleston, Nevada. We flew into Vegas way back in 1998 for our anniversary and stayed at the Mt. Charleston Lodge. We wanted to go back and see it again. When we visited the last time it was covered with snow. We even went on a sleigh ride, it was fabulous!

It was another great day in Vegas with family.

Two Hams in a Can

Jun 5, 2008 - Leg One

060508 – 2022 Neil, Keane, Hitch and I are sitting by the fire after enjoying pasta and homemade sauce. Keane just poured out his coffee after experimenting with vanilla extract to improve its flavor. Necessity and innovation? This morning marked the beginning of Adventure 2.0. This is the sequel to Adventure 1.0 which took place in Europe in December 2006 (breaking into castles, Italian police with UZI’s, Horse Meat Fondue and much more). We jumped in the car at 0710, reset the trip meters and hit the I5. I could tell that Nicole was not...
