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.

To Maine and back

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...

Our 2016 Travels

May 9, 2016 - Barstow to Vegas

Left Barstow this morning, heading to Las Vegas for a few days. We downloaded a great app called Just Ahead. It's an audio roadside attraction guide that tells about the attractions along your route. We're staying at Oasis RV Resort. There are nearly 700 sites here, yikes! It's a different experience for us, but for a huge rv park it's not bad. After setting up 'camp' we drove the strip and downtown, making our game plan. The only stop we made was at the Pawn Stars pawn shop. None of the celebrities were there but the staff was fun to talk to.

May 8, 2016 - Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day Mom! We love you & miss you & can't wait to spend time with you. As you know, we'd planned to arrive in Ely today & were looking forward to sharing this special day with you. A May 20th eye doctor's appointment has postponed that a couple of weeks but we will celebrate with you when we arrive. Just know you are in our thoughts & hearts today & we love you so much. As I write this thoughts of many women who are currently mother's or are in the role of 'motherhood' come to mind. So here's how I'm feeling about those...

May 2, 2016 - Elaine & stacked rocks...

It was a lovely drive home from Riverside, California yesterday after enjoying a nice afternoon with sister Elaine & her hubby Don. They prepared a nice lunch of shrimp, mahi mahi, chicken, veggies, salad etc all on our current diet. Very sweet, thank you so much guys! Elaine has lost 25+ pounds & is looking great :) A storm really tried to brew as we traveled through the Cajon Pass northbound but never materialized. There were clouds of every shape, size & color imaginable, which of course I love! A rainbow tried to appear but never...

Apr 26, 2016 - Stepping back in time :)

In the early '70's my hubby worked for Bell Telephone maintaining microwave stations in Southern Nevada. One of his favorites was Mormon Mesa. Every time we make a trip headed north on Interstate 15 out of Las Vegas we pass the turnoff for this station. We're usually in a hurry or it's too early or too late to take the 14 mile dirt/rock road up to the station. But, this morning we picked up my brother-in-law from the airport & gave him a lift to Mesquite. We headed back to Vegas around noon & today's schedule allowed for a visit of the...

Apr 19, 2016 - Moving On

After spending almost 6 weeks in San Diego, it was time to move on and seeings how we could not go any further west, we headed east on Interstate 8 over the coastal mountains and into the desert flatlands. It’s a beautiful drive of about 100 miles if you are in a car. Not so much if you are in a 40 ft. motorhome towing a car. The day we left it was very windy and quite warm. In fact, there were wind advisories for the mountains and canyons and we were driving right into it. It was a stressful drive with the wind buffeting us and knocking us...
