Nov 13, 2014 - Las Vegas

It took a few days but we finally moved away from the effects of that Polar Vortex. This afternoon we settled into Arizona Charlie's Casino RV Park.It was a good choice as it seems quite new with reasonable rates. Being in Vegas,we had to have the cheap prime rib dinner of course.Temp 23C There is another RV park up the road at Sams Town but it has been taken over by KOA and the travellers are not happy with it anymore.Many of the RV people who stayed there have moved over here. This was the first year we did not drive down here on I-5. We...

Nov 2, 2014 - From Dark Skies to Bright Lights

We left the dark skies of death Valley for the bright lights of Las Vegas this morning. Not much exciting on the trip to Vegas. A couple of roadside attractions and a lot of windshield shots of the mountains and clouds along the route. Worth mentioning in Amargosa Valley is the desert truck stop with an extraterrestrial makeover. It's a gas station and convenience store with a pink brothel around back. The wholesome looking Alien Bar & Grill in the rear of the store doubles as a topless bar at night. According to Roadside Attractions web...

2014 Cross Country 2

Oct 25, 2014 - Perfect way to end our trip

We spent a few days in Las Vegas before heading home. Bill's nephew, Bill, and his wife and two children live there so we visited with them one afternoon. We also had to go down to our favorite pawn store. We watch "Pawn Stars" on the History Channel and the store is located in Las Vegas. Usually there is a long line to get in but we were lucky and walked right in. When we left, people were waiting in a line about 50 people long. Good timing on our part ! We also got tickets to see Jimmy Buffet ! It was his last concert of the year and he...

Oct 12, 2014 - A Short Visit with a Good Friend

From southern Utah and the National Parks we headed south and west to Las Vegas. We wanted to see our good friend April (from Chevy Chase days) who has lived here since 2006. The home she and Jerry bought was in an area of all new construction, but it is now established and has beautiful views of the city lights. She has just redone most of the living area with new wood floors and a new modern fireplace and TV. She has been working on painting the walls, but like April of old, has a hard time settling on color. I can remember back in...

Oct 11, 2014 - Traveling tomorrow

Tomorrow we are on the road again, traveling to Flagstaff, Arizona, to start. The weather says it will only be 70 degrees there. Quite a change from the 90+ degrees we have been experiencing here, with only 7% humidity. We have had the AC on here every day since we got here and at night too. it doesn't seem to cool off much at night. Anyway, We will be on the road for 7 days, ending up in Memphis, Tennessee for 4 days. Anybody been to Memphis? Do you have any suggestions for fun things to do or see? We plan to have some traditional Memphis...

Oct 10, 2014 - Trip to Las Vegas, Nevada

We arrived in Las Vegas on Wednesday the 8th. We decided to have one more stop before heading back to Picacho for the winter. One plan was to get the 5th-wheel & truck washed up, both were washed yesterday, boy did they need it. Of course we're hitting the casinos & I just had to hit the Vegas Outlet Stores today. Being in Vegas means removing the flannel sheets off the bed, went from using the heater to cranking on the air conditioner. We finally have on shorts, the high today was 89 degrees. This has been quite a summer, lots of back...

Oct 8, 2014 - A day trip to downtown Vegas

This morning we went downtown on the Las Vegas strip to "goon out" at all the cool Hotels that we missed the last time we were here. We aren't gamblers, but we do love to look at the beautiful architecture of the hotels. Plus the grounds with all their beautiful fountains, statues, and plants. We ate lunch at the hotel New York New York, at an Irish Pub style restaurant, that is the green building in the photo. The temperature was 90 degrees so even though we had water bottles to drink from we were very parched besides being hungry from...

Oct 7, 2014 - Hoover Dam tour

Today we took a tour of the Hoover Dam. We went inside the dam itself and inside the power plant. It is quite an engineering marvel, that is for sure. For those of you that don't know, they built a bridge above the dam so you don't drive across the dam any more. The bridge is 900 feet above the dam and you can go up and walk across it and look down on the dam if you want to. But not me! We drove across it last year in the RV and that was enough for me!

Oct 5, 2014 - Viva Las Vegas

We left Ely this morning after staying over night at a KOA campground there. Weather was cold here last night, 34 degrees, but we are up at about 6500 feet elevation too. We decided to take the scenic route which added a 1/2 hour on to our day, but it was pretty and hardly any traffic. We traveled up to 7500 feet today before our descent down into Las Vegas. We've discovered that Nevada doesn't have a lot of rest stops, or what we would call rest stops back home. They are mostly just turn outs with a litter barrel and usually no bathrooms....

Sep 18, 2014 - Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort, Las Vegas, NV review

Very nice RV park, but kinda expensive. Some sites have build outs which are very nice and look like high dollar. Our Verizon, ATT and Dish all worked well. They do have internet, but we did not use it. They have a diner and the food is pretty good, only breakfast and lunch. They have 5 pools and the main pool has 3 jacuzzis. Pretty good location, close to the freeway and shopping. Quiet, except for the airport plane traffic. If staying in Vegas and not on a budget, this is a good place to stay.

Sep 9, 2014 - Day's 3 & 4, Las Vegas

After some of the worst overnight thunderstorms I have ever seen, we left Phoenix and travelled through Arizona to Hoover Dam, where we crossed into Nevada and then onto Vegas where we arrived around 3pm on Monday. With the weather in Las Vegas atrocious and the pool closed, we had to make do with inside entertainment and boy did we find some great little bars. Pistol and I enjoyed a few drinks in the Golden Nugget before heading over to the Freemont for some $2 beers and then decided to take a walk a little down the road where we found a...
