Feb 15, 2014 - First night out
The first full day in Vegas was great. The first concert with Shania was well worth seeing. The concert was well produced, sang most of her hits, made a couple of visits to the audience. We were literally 2 seats away from her when she was in the isle and 8 rows back from the stage for the rest of the concert. Ok yes, she still looks real good.Jump to full entry
Feb 15, 2014 - Vegas here we are!!!!
Well as you guessed we arrived in Las Vegas at about 3AM. At that time of the AM there was only one receptionist checking people in, therefore we stayed in line for a good hour. After approaching the desk, showing our picture ID and conformation number, we were told we were at the wrong hotel. We were not booked into the Flamingo but at the Hilton Vacation Suited at the Flamingo a short walk from there. By 6AM we had things straightened out and crashed big time. Of course Red had to make amends by making sure shopping was on the top of the...Jump to full entry
Feb 12, 2014 - What Happens in Vagueness . . .
We left Mesa about Dave time, planning to stop for a one nighter just to the east of Kingman. I got off at the exit, but when Jeff looked at this phone, it only showed 3G, so I got right back on the freeway. We can never rely on park WiFi, and 3G is just too slow. We're addicted to technology, what can I say? Jeff called ahead to see if Nellis AFB RV park had an opening for us a day ahead of time, and we just drove on in to Vegas. This will be the farthest west for us as we will begin the trip home when we leave here. We got a regular...Jump to full entry
Feb 9, 2014 - Sun. Day:117
Feb. 9, 2014 - Day 117 It's Sunday & we all slept in today; but not too late. Oh & of course it's our last day here & it's supposed to be in the high 60's & getting warmer as the week progresses. It was a time for just sitting & enjoying each other's company till we had to go & drop Shannon off at the airport for her flight back to TO. I do apologize for not saying this in yesterday's journal but our Shannon won three awards at this Trade Show for her performance & dedication at MASCO Cabinetry; I'm not sure for what the awards were for but...Jump to full entry
Feb 8, 2014 - Sat. Day:116
Feb. 8, 2014 - Day 116 Trying to figure out what to do this Sat. & top on the list was John Mull’s Meats & the Road Kill Grill; it was on Triple "D" & I just had to go. So it's about 45 mins. North of where we are staying; it's a Butcher Shop/Meat Market & out back or maybe it's the front they do BBQ. We bought a 3 meat combo; brisket, ribs, pulled pork; with a side of baked beans & green beans and we are taking it home for supper plus we had a hot link on a bun & 1 cut up with sauce on it that we ate there. It was so good & it didn't have...Jump to full entry
Feb 7, 2014 - Fri. Day:115
Feb. 7, 2014 - Day 115 Yes once again for some of you it's TGIF & for others of us that do not partake in the work force anymore it's just plain Friday but it's Vegas Friday for Janet & I. It is the day to go & visit the Discovery Channel shows: Pawn Stars, American Restoration, & Counting Cars; will we get in, I don't know as I was told that Pawn Stars or the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop charges people $25 to enter the store so it just maybe photos only. So Janet & I take to S. Las Vegas Blvd. again heading North & I'm so used to driving this...Jump to full entry
Feb 7, 2014 - Feb. 6 Thurs. Day:114
Feb. 6, 2014 - Day 114 Thurs. & it's day 7 in Las Vegas. So we've made our reservations for the Sedona, AZ area for next week; 2 days maybe 3 there; we'll know better once we are there. I bought the silicone that I kept asking Mike for & finally re-caulked the area that split in on the edge of the trailer/skin & thank goodness I did because it was drizzling here & it was supposed to rain later today. Off we go to find Costco all the way out in Henderson & then we stopped at the Silverton Casino/Resort on the other side of the freeway from...Jump to full entry
Feb 6, 2014 - On the road again!
Hi everyone! We're still alive and kicking, just been very busy. We are actually getting back on the road today, so this will be short as it's time to get busy. I'll try and put an up-to-date synopsis up later this evening after we get settled in. Thank you so much for continuing to stop by and I promise I'll do better with this journal in the days to come!Jump to full entry
Feb 6, 2014 - Feb. 5, Wed. Day:113
Feb. 5, 2014 - Day 113 Hellllllllllllllllloooooooo Wed. & the sun is shining but it's still cool out. We've been keeping track of the weather for the next week through Arizona, New Mexico, & Texas; the cold & snow is not what we are looking for in traveling as we are not setup for that kind of weather. It's been coolish here in the day & cold at night not Windsor cold but we were told to dress for warm weather & we don't have winter clothing here & I'm not buying any. So Janet & I have talked & we are going to stick to the lower/southern...Jump to full entry
Feb 4, 2014 - Tues. Day:112
Feb. 4, 2014 - Day 112 So it is Tues. Feb. 4, 2014 & today is the day that we leave Deb & Mike to continue their journeys as well as ours. Their journey will only take them back to the Bashford's but ours will take us on new roads & maybe be a couple of old ones. We have been together for 105 days but it really doesn't seem that long; it's all about being retired that makes it feel like the days are just running into each other; hell it's hard to distinguish Sat./Sun. from any other day. Oh & please feel free to give me criticism about my...Jump to full entry
Feb 2, 2014 - Sun. Day:110
Feb. 2, 2014 - Day 110 Sunday finally & only hours away till we see Shannon. Oh & you all may get a history lesson later on in today's Journal excerpt. Janet & I just decided to stay close to the trailer till it was time go to the airport, while Deb, Erica, & Mike ended going to an Outlet Mall. Time to locate the airport & off we go to find this airport & being me I took an indirect route. I went down Paradise Rd. then up to S. Las Vegas Blvd. & I never realized that the city of Vegas was that close to the airport. But then I thought when...Jump to full entry
