Apr 8, 2018 - A Slow weekend...
I have not posted since Thursday because there is little to report. We checked out of the Rio on Friday morning and headed to WW Williams. We knew from earlier communication that the tank was not back yet but would be back by noon. This meant that we would need a place to spend the weekend. We were able to get into a Homewood Suites in Henderson, just south of Las Vegas. We took donuts to the folks at WWW and retrieved more clothing and some of our dirty clothes so we could get ready for motorhome life next week. Then to Cracker Barrel for...Jump to full entry
Mar 12, 2018 - Fun With Family
After Betty's movers took the pods with all her furniture, she had until the 9th of March before her flight to Kentucky. We made the best of our time, she stayed with us in the RV. We enjoyed eating out and meeting with Kim at Ellis Island. They are known for great steaks and at a very low price. We all enjoyed the food and the company. This was the last time for Betty to see Kim before her flight out of town. We took Betty to the airport for her flight to Union on the 9th, she is staying at Vickie's until the move-in day on the 15th of...Jump to full entry
Feb 27, 2018 - Las Vegas, Nevada
This is a quick update to let everyone know we have finally arrived in Las Vegas. :-) We will be visiting with family and helping Betty move over the next few days. Our trip today was non-eventful, just fast and easy the way we like it. I will be adding pictures later, check back later for more from Nevada.Jump to full entry
Oct 18, 2014 - Las Vegas, NV
Sat, 18 Oct: From wilderness to the Big City... Living our RV dream is often a study in contrasts. We awoke at Burro Creek campground, where we'd spent the nite boondocking in this scenic and remote area along US 93. This morning our greatest concern was watching out for rattlesnakes that tend to congregate near campsites as they attempt to warm up. We didn't see any (if we had, you'd have hears Sandi's scream!) We ended the day in Las Vegas, a really big city by our standards. They also have plenty of snakes here—but mostly of the...Jump to full entry
Apr 28, 2014 - 4 Wheeling in Utah...
We're back from our week away and what a great time we had! Utah was beautiful, the scenery was fabulous & the weather co-operated the entire trip. We spent the first day exploring the local area and driving around the lake. Jim took us up numerous dirt roads to check out lovely views of the area. He & Brenda have been spending their summers up here for several years, camping in their motorhome. Last year they decided to sell their rig & purchase a trilevel cabin up on the ridge. They've explored all of this area, both by vehicle & on four...Jump to full entry
Apr 21, 2014 - Happy Easter!
Well, once again, sorry to be so long in posting. I'll try to do better in the future. We're leaving in the morning for Utah, so I won't be posting again until this weekend. We're visiting our friends at their new cabin, and it is in a beautiful area up near Panguitch, so I should have a few nice pics to share. So for those of you that check faithfully each day, you won't need to check in again until Saturday. And by the way, we appreciate your readership. And your wonderful comments & suggestions! We hope you all had a beautiful Easter. We...Jump to full entry
Apr 14, 2014 - Birthday Party...
I'm running a bit behind posting again, sorry about that. It's been a busy week, seems to stay that way! Last Monday, the 7th, was Lil Larry's 43rd birthday, and since we are in town (normally we're not), Larry & I wanted to do a 'special' birthday dinner for him. They have been very busy trying to get the remodeling done on their new home and Larry's 'real work' has been sporadic lately. He's currently working on the Tropicana Hotel, waiting for the next 'long term' job to kick in. Anyway, rather than all 11 of us going out to dinner...Jump to full entry
Apr 8, 2014 - Back to Vegas...
Saturday was a beautiful day to travel as we made our way home from Ely. We traveled US Hwy 6 to Nevada 318 to I-15 to I-95. The snow capped mountains were lovely as were the puffy white clouds. I do love my clouds!!! We were amazed at the number of snowbirds we passed heading north. In case you don't know what a snowbird is, they are RV'ers who reside in the colder parts of the United States, and many Canadians as well, who head south to escape winter conditions each & every year. The most popular areas are Yuma, Casa Grande, Tuscon &...Jump to full entry
Apr 5, 2014 - Mother-Daughter Time....
Well, it's been girl time with Mom the past couple of days. She got a new haircut & a much needed pedicure. Yesterday we had a nice lunch out (Chinese, no Larry, lol) a bit of shopping & then took a drive so I could take a few pics of the surrounding snowy mountains. It's cold today, 47 degrees but it's not too bad if you stay in the sun. Larry's been busy repairing Mom's kitchen countertop and staring at his I-Pad. Yep, he stares at it day & night, lol. Says it's the best gift he ever received. He did load our quad up yesterday, and while...Jump to full entry
Apr 3, 2014 - Mom to Ely...
After arriving back in Vegas we had a few days of rest before packing a bag and heading to Mesquite to pick Mom up for her trip home. She had warned me in advance that she had accumulated a lot while out of town. Oh my goodness, her baggage was unbelievable! You might remember that I took her to California way back in December to visit sister Elaine & her family for a couple of months. Well, my truck was loaded pretty heavily then but it was nothing compared to this trip, lol! Of course Christmas and her birthday happened during that time...Jump to full entry
Mar 28, 2014 - Travel day to Nevada...
Woke Thursday to more blowing winds. Uh oh, now what? After deliberating a bit we ultimately decided to just go for it. It's not so much our driving in the wind that bothers us, it's the other drivers! The 5'er tracks really well but tall vehicles like motorhomes & truckers seem to have a bit more issue when the winds are high. As evidenced by a terrible accident we encountered in the middle of nowhere. A semi apparently lost control on the narrow two lane road and hit a small pickup truck head on. The pickup was already loaded on a flatbed...Jump to full entry
