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...

Jul 23, 2019 - Le Rêve - Best Las Vegas Shows for Kids

Combining all the interesting features like fire, water, swimming, acrobatics, and other spectacular effects, Le Reve is considered one of the best Las Vegas shows for kids. What you will like the most is that no seat is further than 42 feet from the stage in the theater, so you feel like you are a part of the show. If you are one of those who enjoys a saucy, sumptuous and all around the awe-inspiring evening of entertainment, then you have to check Le Rêve at Wynn Las Vegas. The simplest thing to see here is someone kicking water in...

Jul 12, 2019 - Emerald Pool/Zion

Las Vegas, NV Although summer is not a good time to see the Emerald Pools of Zion at their best, we went anyway. Unfortunately, a rock slide closed the trail to Middle and Upper Emerald Pools so we had to settle for just Lower. The trail includes views of Lady Mountain, the Great White Throne, and Red Arch Mountain. Summer can be very hot and summer can start early here so the falls are down to a trickle and the “emerald” pool (colored by alga) was not in the least bit emerald. Since this was our last day in Zion, we took one last look at...

Jun 13, 2019 - Las Vegas NV - Las Vegas KOA at Sam's Town - Journey Campground

Spent a few days in Buckeye doing laundry, shopping, etc., then loaded the camper in temperatures above 105 degrees. Decided it was definitely time to leave Arizona to escape the heat. Headed for Vegas with a quick stop at an Escapees RV park in Congress AZ. Roger has always wondered how we stacked up to the weight limits for our rig and the Escapees will weigh it for you at the park up there. They were very thorough even taking into account our tire types and the year they were manufactured. They weighed the truck and camper together, then...

Retired at Last!

Jun 4, 2019 - Las Vegas

We had breakfast at Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bakery in the Venetian. Of course, we had to buy some bakery goods to take with us. Dinner was at Giada's Restaurant which is in the heart of the strip across from the Bellagio Casino/Hotel. We had excellent seating to be able to see the water fountain show at the Belagio. We again visited the Wynn Casino/Hotel. We were last at the Wynn on June 9, 2014. Since then, valuable art pieces have been removed, like the "Popeye" piece that was worth about a million dollars. Crude people had crossed the...

Jun 1, 2019 - Las Vegas

We’ve started week 3 of our 28 week trip. Week one, as you may remember, was our adventure of getting from Hawaii to Travis AFB, California and visiting old friends and relatives. Week 2 was attending the (maybe) final run of Rolling Thunder in Washington D.C and again seeing old friends. Week 3 has us stomping around Las Vegas for 12 days and visiting a very dear friend who is always the first to welcome us to Vegas. We finished our Week 2 by emptying our storage unit of all the leftover motor home “stuff”, along with our mini-prepper...
