Nov 25, 2013 - Laughlin, NV/Bullhead City, AZ

We just finished up a week at a Coast to Coast park in Bullhead City, Arizona. It was a nice park and the weather was great for the first 4 days and then the “front” moved in. It’s the same front that is marching east and causing such problems right now in the middle of the country and suppose to hit the east coast by Thanksgiving. For us it was just rain, wind and chilly temps, but I know it is now dumping ice and snow in many parts of the country. We left Las Vegas and drove south through Nevada headed for the Colorado River. The last...

Nov 19, 2013 - On to Arizonie

Tuesday Nov 19 We continued our journey south today along Hwy 95. The topography was the same with mountains, large basins, salt/mineral flats and long distance vistas. At one point we could see 6 or 7 successive ridges/mountain ranges – likely 100 miles or more to the final one. That is the way it is in the West. We passed old mines, mining towns and desert roads that begged to be explored with an ATV or Jeep. As we got closer to Las Vegas we began to see Joshua trees. We passed by the turn to the Cherry Patch at the Love Ranch, then...

Oct 15, 2013 - Day Trip: Bullhead City, AZ

It is another wonderful day on the road. We start on the motorcycle. We go 3 miles west to Needles Highway, 9 miles north to Laughlin and 3 miles east to the casinos. We arrive at the same time as our All Terrain Vehicles. John parks the motorcycle and I check the helmets. Mike, our guide, takes us across the Colorado River to Arizona. He pulls onto a dirt road and finally parks. We have arrived at our playground for the day. Mike unloads the ATV’s. He gives us our first “Do Rags” and a helmet. We are ready to play! The people who run this...

Apr 10, 2013 - Bullhead City,AZ/Laughlin,NV

We are now in Bullhead City, Nv. The park is lovely, paved streets a beautiful pool and spa and is located on a hill overlooking the casinos in Laughlin,NV. We spent the day setting up, doing wash and checking out the things we want to see in the area. The wind has finally settled down to a nice breeze and the temp is in the low 80's (perfect). The park is only a mile from the Colorado River so I hope Mark will catch some fish while we are here.

Tuesday - we packed up and left our hotel in Flagstaff, AZ at 9:30 am and started off on another day of traveling. The kids have traveled very well.

Bags of: toys, activity books, reading books, games, educational activities, etc. They have also listened to several books on CD. Surprisingly we have made it with very few movies on our DVD player, and limited...

Well, It is Monday May 7th and we still have 6 days before we leave for the long air flight to Sydney Australia. We will be travelling by plane for 14 hours.

We leave Sunday night but because of crossing the International Dateline we will not arrive to Sydney until Tuesday morning. We will then have the day in Sydney and...

Apr 18, 2012 - Laughlin/Bullhead

Arrived at our campsite and was pleasently surprised at the beautiful view out of our window. We are at the Avi Casino about 7 miles outside Laughlin. First couple of days did mostly nothing. Recooperating after the Rally and running a lot in Phoenix. Laughlin and Bullhead are across the river from each other. Laughlin mostly casinos and the people live and shop in Bullhead. Beautiful scenery. Several trips to Walmart and did laundry at the campground. Had to take advantaage of food deals - 99 cent breakfast (eggs, ham, hashbrowns and...

Jan 29, 2012 - Bullhead City, AZ

We have stopped in Bullhead City, AZ for a couple of days to check out the area since we have never been to this part of the state. The ride up from Yuma through Parker was very beautiful. We are staying at an older, but rather nice motel called The Lodge on the River. It sits on the Colorado. We have a 2 room suite with a balcony and it costs less than a normal motel room. We took a ride across the river to Laughlin, NV which is a micro-Las Vegas. We walked into Harrah's and promptly lost our lunch money. We gamble about once every 2...

Apr 5, 2011 - Bullhead City and Chloride, AZ

When we left Cottonwood, we went north and west to Bullhead City, where it was even warmer than it was in Cottonwood. We revisited Oatman, drove up to Peach Springs, and took a fascinating Saturday jaunt to the genuine 1860's mining town of Chloride. During its heyday from 1900 to 1920, there were 75 mines which produced silver chloride, lead, zinc, copper and gold. Today, this village is home to craftsmen and artists who have shops in the town. We looked around, watched a few staged gunfights, had a great lunch at Yesterday's Tavern, and...

Mar 19, 2011 - Bullhead City, AZ

We spent time along the Colorado River in Ehrenberg, AZ. After a few days in Phoenix for some window work, we moved to Bullhead City, AZ. Our campsite had a great view of Laughlin, NV. especially the night lights of the casinos. The two cities are seperated by the Colorado River. The roadsides are just showing some color with the first blooms of the desert. On the Mar. 25th we are moving to Pahrump, NV until April 20th. Our annual ALFA motor home rally will be held in Pahrump which is located about one hour NW of Las Vegas. We are looking...
