Aug 6, 2020 - Las Vegas NV

We have been in Las Vegas now for a couple of days. Basically we wanted to see how they were operating with all the virus issues. There are 51000 cases in Nevada and 45000 are in Clark County (Vegas). We are being very careful. Basically Vegas is kind of a ghost town. The casinos are empty. They seem to be using this opportunity to work on infrastructure, the Strip is torn up, and practically everything is closed. A lot of the casinos have plastic barriers to protect the dealers and players. Three people maximum at a blackjack table and 6...

Jun 6, 2020 - Finding My Peace: A Hawaiian Airbnb Experience

I recently decided that it was time for a new experience. Time to travel somewhere I had never been before. I have read that spending my well-earned money on travel is a much better way to create long-lasting happiness, and it was time for a change in my life. I have some friends that had stayed in a couple of Airbnb’s for business trips. They promised me that it would be a good way to save some money while getting access to a more personalized and homey atmosphere in a new setting. It took me a while to decide where I wanted to start...

You should look up...

Jun 4, 2020 - Why You Should Go To Vegas

So maybe you’re not so hot on gambling. And in your mind, that automatically means you will never be interested in a trip to Las Vegas. Not so fast! There are plenty of reasons why Las Vegas is a great city that everyone should visit – even people who have never sat down to gamble in their lives (or shown any interest in gambling). You Can Rest by the Pool Las Vegas has around 300 days of sun a year, so much sun that Las Vegas solar panels top an amazing number of houses (and casinos), which makes the city rank in the top 10 in the country...

Mar 6, 2020 - Some College Basketball action

Some College Basketball Action 3-6-20 I was up early to get the bread and cinnamon rolls at Great Harvest Bread. I manage to get the goodies to the condo on time for breakfast. Scott and Kristi prepared the eggs and sausage. We cut up some cinnamon rolls to go with the feast. Around noon, we loaded up the van for the Orleans arena to take in some women’s college basketball. Gonzaga didn’t play, (they play later in the tourney because of their high seeding), but we had fun anyway. After the games, we found Sharon and Bill and put them in the...

Mar 5, 2020 - Hanging in Las Vegas

Hanging out in Las Vegas 3-5-20 The whole clan crammed into the 15 passenger van for the annual pilgrimage to “Mr. Mamma’s Breakfast and Lunch.” This is a great place to eat and the host is a hoot. After breakfast, we went to the condo and hung out for hours discussing all sorts of topics including kids, gran-kids, sports, old movies, all the maladies we are succumbing to and how the “virus” will surely take us all because we belong to a high risk group (folks over 65). It seems we never run out of things to talk about. Lots of fun. Sharon...

Mar 4, 2020 - Mesquite, NV to Las Vegas

Mesquite, NV to Las Vegas, NV 3-4-20 Pretty short trip today so left Mesquite around 9AM. Arrived in Las Vegas around 10AM and decided to run a few errands before the expected arrival of friends Kristi and Scott around 3:30 PM. One errand was to get dog treats for Sadie as they are out of them in Anchorage. Turns out they are out of them everywhere. I’m not sure I can go home now, Sadie likes her treats. I checked into my hotel, Eastside Cannery near Boulder Highway and Tropicana. I guess I picked the hotel because it is next door to the RV...

Oct 18, 2019 - Las Vegas

October 18, 2019 The wind died down and is very pleasant this morning. Made a nice breakfast trying to use up what we have left on board. Pulled most everything out of the storage areas and rearranged based on our experience of three weeks on the road. Did a deeper clean than usual which should lighten the load when we get home. Even did laundry which is cheap ($2.50)! There are some very fancy rigs with hydraulic lifts for motorcycles. Most are spotless. Many folks getting their rigs washed today. Lazed about reading etc. This is the one...

Oct 17, 2019 - Grand Canyon, AZ to Las Vegas, NV

October 17, 2019 Not so cold last night but we did have the space heater on. Today is a travel day to Las Vegas (281 miles) without much in the way of scenery. Headed south on Hwy 89 to historic Williams, the nearest town to the south rim (60 miles) and a main street town on Rte 66. The train to the Grand Canyon also has a terminus there. Got expensive gas and some groceries for our last rig cooked meal of the trip. Interstate 40 which is not much other than scrub brush scenery, wind and long, sweeping hills with many 6% grades is not too...

Oct 3, 2019 - Camping Trips and Las Vegas

Our next camping trip was in early July. We took a week and went to Bridal Falls near Chilliwack. It brought back a lot of memories because we have spent a lot of time at Camperland over the years since 1993. Not much has really changed! We had a nice few days including visiting with friends Fred and Angie who used to live at Pacific Border RV Park and Jamie Scott who used to work for Larry. Of course because it was Bridal Falls, the weather was cloudy with just a little rain. On July 19, Maureen went over to Vancouver for the weekend....

Sep 29, 2019 - Las Vegas

Let's hit the Strip Day 25 Next stop Vegas and party time! It is only approximately 30 miles from Boulder City so should take us less than an hour to get there. The road is long and straight, through the desert and the temperature begins to rise. We have travelled about 10 miles when we notice a strip of tall buildings on the horizon. Surely this can't be Las Vegas, it's not for another 20 miles. It just appears out of the desert and as we get closer gets bigger and bigger. The traffic builds and we hit the suburbs. Suddenly there is...
