Sun's going down and it's still 90 .. tomorrow they are expecting 96. Yikes ... Neither of us really has any interest in Las Vegas but I guess we'll see what all the hub bub is about ...

Apr 16, 2018 - Day 21 in Vegas, and hopefully our last

I noticed yesterday as we came through the gatehouse there was a handwritten sign with this caption "and we call the wind Mariah, and a few $%^&*( names". I have always loved the song "Mariah", but I am sick of this high wind that we have seen during our 21 days in Vegas. More than half the days have been great but the ones that are not alright is because the wind has howled. A number of those days the wind speeds have been in the 25 - 35 mph and with most of those days there have been gust warnings of 40 - 60 mph. Enough is enough....

Apr 15, 2018 - Slow but Busy weekend

Saturday, up early by default...I woke up and could not go back to sleep. Up around 6:30, had breakfast while Sue was getting ready, then vice versa, she ate and I got ready. She worked on laundry for the second day in a row. She is making very good progress. I planned my wardrobe so that a certain amount had to be dirty so my drawers would be full but not stuffed. I am going to have to dirty some things up faster or she is gonna stress my wardrobe accommodations. We left around noon and headed for Henderson as that is where the people...

Apr 13, 2018 - Finally, we start to unwind...

Today was one of catch up, rest up and unwind some. We did as much of all as we could. Early, (8:30-ish) we started by having breakfast and getting around slowly. Laundry was started, taxes payment prepared for mailing and various motorhome maintenance. Around 2:00 we headed out to mail our final installment to Uncle Sam. With that done we headed for the south end of the Strip. We went to Chili's just in front of the Outlet Mall. We were in time to still qualify for the lunch menu. We ate well for a lot less than normal. Then into the mall...

Apr 12, 2018 - 19th day is a winner...we hope

We woke up in the Hampton Inn in North Las Vegas. We had breakfast downstairs and it was poor to say the best. But we had something. Then back to Cummins. We drove up and the Bus was still on the lot. We were concerned as soon as we saw it was unplugged. As we got out we noticed the tech was in the drivers seat and starting to take the Bus around the building. As we got out of the CRV to go inside we really noticed the 25+ mph wind. I mean really noticed and the forecast was for the winds to increase. Once inside we settled into our...

Apr 6, 2018 - Las Vegas

An interesting day! We took some roads not travelled again...I wanted to avoid the inspection station in California! I did not want to give up my fruits and vegetables so we took a few less travelled roads. As it turned out we still went through an inspection but it was all good! I really wanted to stop in Lake Havasu but Mel wanted to keep on trucking. I was not a good co-pilot and we ended up driving through Bullhead City which added time to our trip. Oh well, he did not let me see the London Bridge! Take that! LOL I guess our not...

Apr 6, 2018 - Vegas and trip notes

We are in Scottsdale, AZ now. We stopped in Vegas for three days. My wonderful brother and his wife flew in from Atlanta to visit with us. We had a great time!! Hoover dam, great show and delicious food and drink. That’s all. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Just some geewiz stuff about the trip. We have made the turn and are now headed back east toward home. We have driven just over 3000 miles, 90% of those with the top down! The weather has been wonderful!! The pony is getting 26.3 mpg. Average speed 48 mph. We are in no hurry....

Apr 5, 2018 - Last Night at the Rio

Yesterday, (Wednesday) provided little other than another day of frustration that we are stuck in a hotel and not the Bus. We went to WWW to check on the status of the repairs. The tank was sent to the local vendor for cleaning, checking for leaks and complete renovation. They hope it will be back on Friday, early. Our concern is where will that leave us Friday evening. If they complete the Bus it will be late. It is hard to reserve a space in any RV resort, if you do not have a Bus. It is hard to book a hotel room at weekend rates if you...

Apr 3, 2018 - Stuck in Vegas

For the next two nights I will be reporting from Las Vegas. In fact, the Rio in Las Vegas. Just off the strip on Flamingo Road. We are here because the fuel tank is out of the Bus and has been shipped off to be cleaned. Wild hectic day. I started early by running to W W Williams to check on the Bus. Good thing, they had turned the Bus around and pulled it inside. Then they plugged it up...however, they did not get it plugged in completely and the Bus ran all night on batteries. I ran in and checked and found that the batteries were at 50%...

Mar 25, 2018 - Last Update Vegas

This will be our last update from Las Vegas. We are getting the RV ready for travel to Colorado. We will be having new airbags replaced in the morning, they said it will only take a couple of hours to add the new ones before we are on the road. When we had problems with our RV in Beatty, the man who repaired it noticed our airbags were cracked too. We called Good Sam and they told us to take the RV over to a repair shop so they could check them out. They approved the replacement, we only have to pay the deductible of the $2800 for replacing...

Mar 24, 2018 - Birding Update

This update for all of our birding friends: When we arrived at our campsite in Las Vegas, we put out a couple of hummingbird feeders and two regular seed feeders. We were surprised at how fast the feeders were found. Vegas has turned into one of our best birding areas. We have two different kinds of hummers at the hummingbird feeder, plus we saw a tiny baby at the feeder, half eating, half sleeping. I went to take a closer look through the windshield and saw mama feeding two babies in the nest. Wow! This is the first time I have found a...

Mar 22, 2018 - More - Fun With Family

We had a great time with Kim and Cameron tonight. We met at the Geisha House Japanese Restaurant for a hibachi style dinner. The chef was one of the best we have had. He tossed eggs in the air and cracked them coming down, he made a cool volcano that had fire and smoke coming out of it. He turned the fried rice into a heart shape and then make it beat. Kim and Cameron had the steak and shrimp and Jerry and I had the chicken and shrimp. All were delicious. There was so much food, we could not eat all of it. Starting with a fresh salad with...
