Arrived in Sutherlin, Oregon. Beautiful ride over. Lots of big hills. Our RV worked very hard to get us here. Beautiful campground. Feels like we're in New England again.

Jun 4, 2015 - Old Station, California

Beautiful drive through Northern California. Arrived in Old Station. Took a drive to Burney Falls and hiked to the bottom of the falls. Dan did a great job hiking with his crutches. Next day took a drive through and around Lassen Volcanic National Park. We weren't dressed appropriately. It was about 40 degrees at the top. Saw lots of snow, built a small snowman and posed in front of the snow banks. The drive around was incredibly beautiful. Got to Supans Sulphur Works. It consisted of mud pots and boiling springs. The next day we took off...

Jun 3, 2015 - Pahrump, Nevada

Drove to Pahrump about an hour from Vegas. Settled in at a beautiful campground called the Winery. Gary and Maryanne our friends from Duck Creek followed us there. There was a beautiful pool and spa that overlooked the Mtns. The next day we drove to Scotty's Castle. It was a beautiful drive and an interesting place. Took a tour of the castle and learned all about Scotty. Walter Scott, Death Valley Scotty, convinced everyone that he had built the castle with money from his rich secret mines in the area. Albert Mussey Johnson actually built...

Jun 3, 2015 - Update...

Hi there! Are you still around, checking occasionally to see if I've actually posting anything??? So sorry not to have been in touch. It has been an exhausting couple of months to say the least. So, I'll spare you all of the details except maybe a highlight or two. I believe my last few posts covered our month long stay in Deming, New Mexico after which we headed back to Arizona for a bit. During the last half of our stay in NM Larry's back & legs began giving him trouble. At first we believed it to be a sciatic issue, similar to the one he...

Jun 3, 2015 - Carson City, Nevada

Drove to Carson City, Nevada. Stayed at the Silver Creek RV Resort. An awesome park that had a gas station, hair salon and general store, along with a pool and hot tub. Took a drive to Lake Tahoe. The most scenic drive so far. Our first stop we were hit with the strong scent of Pine. Made us feel like we were back home in Concord. Forgot how much we missed it after spending a couple of months in the desert. Met a couple from Vt. Ed and Carolyn who now have a home in NC and travel during the winter months. They gave us some tips about...

Jun 2, 2015 - Las Vegas

Las Vegas…the Fabulous Las Vegas, que dire sur cette ville qui n`a pas été dit. Cette ville ou plusieurs d`entre vous avez déjà été je l`espère, car il faut se l`avouer, il faut voir ça une fois dans sa vie. Oui c`est la ville du jeu et de la luxure avant tout mais c`est une grande ville comme toute les autres. De notre côté les grandes villes, ce n`est pas notre ‘’tasse de thé’’ surtout avec les enfants. Quel changement drastique entre le calme et la sérénité des National Park et cette méga métropole sortie de nulle part en plein milieu...

May 24, 2015 - Zion to Las Vegas

Trip-wise this is just a travel day, ending the tour in Las Vegas. We are now on our own for a day and evening in Vegas. We were suppose to fly out today for Rapid City, where we would have 2 free days before our next tour, but thanks to United Airlines cancelling our flight, we now have time here. This evening we decided to go to downtown Vegas for a little gambling, dinner and to see the Fremont Experience. Very interesting, with many, many people and characters. Great people watching place. Glad I can now say "been there and done that"...

May 20, 2015 - Lake Mead & Hoover Dam

Spent a week at Lake Mead with our friend Beth. Went for a morning hike through the 5 tunnels on the railroad trail. It was so beautiful. Saw a Big Horn Sheep. Spent a day in Boulder City and went to lunch at the Hotel downtown, sat outdoors and enjoyed a wonderful meal. Took a tour of the Hoover Dam. It was amazing. The water is 140 ft. lower than it's original depth. Tried to go on a bike ride on the path that surrounds the area, but it was extremely windy and lots of hills. Decided it was easier to hike than bike around. Met Kathy &...

May 14, 2015 - Las Vegas

Las Vegas Baby! We arrived in Vegas this afternoon. TAO (Thomas Arthur Olezeski), his wife and son (Art and Rosinia's nephew) visited us. First time Vinny and Kathy met them. TAO has visited Alaska and shared all of his experiences giving us many great ideas of where to go and what to do. Also his wife Stephanie is a pilot for Southwest which just happens to be Vinny's only airline. Next flight Vinny will be requesting Stephanie as his pilot. We picked up the bus to the strip at 7:20pm. Art found a buddy on the bus and the trip was filled...

May 10, 2015 - Grand Canyon! Helicopters and bikes!

Hi all! Today was our free time day in the Grand Canyon! I wasn't expecting there to be much to do but there was actually a lot and I didn't fit it all in! But that's okay because we come back to the Grand Canyon on the way home. First up we had to get up super early to go on a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon. We had to tell them our weights and I, along with everyone else, may have lied a little about our weight... Most magical, priceless, unexplainable experience I've ever had. Our helicopter was the first to take off and I had...
