Mar 2, 2015 - Ready for racing & Race Questions
Well hi folks. After a 7 hr drive in rain and drizzle from Phoenix to Vegas we safely arrived and set up the rig for 4 days and a wee bit of wagering at Sam's Town and other fine establishments. Felt good to be moving after the winter of sitting in one spot. Rig was ready I think as well, it is built to move. Departed out of Phoenix a different way this time and it was excellent by passing Sun City and its 16 miles of stop lights. Rained all nite and weather is cool today with forecast to improve all week with sun and temps up to 75F for...Jump to full entry

Feb 9, 2015 - Trip to Las Vegas
On Monday February 9th we left Surprise, picked up Keith & Margie and headed to Las Vegas to meet Rey and Estela and Matt & Erin. On the way we stopped in Bouse and visited Kenny and Pat & Maxine and Gerold for a few minutes. We arrived in LV around 3:30 go checked in at the Treasure Island Hotel. Rey & Estela arrived around 5:30 PM. We went down the street to a food court for dinner. Not what I had in mind for our first night in LV, but the prices were really expensive. . Later on Matt & Erin came to our room for a visit to meet R & E and...Jump to full entry

Jan 24, 2015 - Family...
Last Sunday morning our 18 wheeling son Don arrived in the morning for a one night layover, then son Jim & his wife Paula flew in from Alaska Sunday evening. That caused an early golf game Sunday morning, a bunch of football later in the day & a visit from grandson DJ & family. Followed by taco soup & kickin' back with family. It was sure good to see everyone! Larry's been fighting that cold/cough 'thing' that's been going around so his energy level has been down & breathing is a bit of a problem. Hasn't affected his appetite much though,...Jump to full entry
Jan 12, 2015 - Happy Birthday Larry...
Saturday was Larry's birthday & our niece Cindy's birthday was on the 3rd so we did a joint birthday celebration on Saturday. Bonnie prepared one of their favorite meals, homemade chicken & noodles & of course we enjoyed cake & ice cream afterward. Grandson Ryan & his girlfriend Emily arrived from Oregon on Friday evening so they were able to join us & we met Emily for the first time. A sweet, cute girl & Ryan seems quite devoted to her. They will be living here for the next four years as Ryan will be starting dental school here at UNLV in...Jump to full entry
Jan 10, 2015 - Off to Vegas and the Strip
We were up and packing the RV for the move to Las Vegas fairly early, as it was a longer ride. A little different packing, with four adults and suitcases for two, where to stow everything now? Once we were all stored (Mitch pushed the buttons to pull the slide-outs in!) we got back out on the LA freeways, with Michelle making sure Mike was veering to the left or right as necessary to keep us on the right freeway (refer to our last post about how freeways come together and apart here, every 2 miles there seems to be another one, have to...Jump to full entry
Jan 10, 2015 - The Vegas Strip!
So here we are. The early morning waiting for the shuttle to take us to the land of gambling and drinks! We boarded the shuttle at Sam’s Town to take us to the famous Freemont Street. As we made our way down the freeway we got sights of the Vegas strip that we were going to visit later. We left the bus and started our journey through Freemont Street. Now unfortunately we didn’t pre think the one fact, that Freemont Street is best seen at night. And at 9:30am, there isn’t really much going on. Which was kinda good however as we were able to...Jump to full entry
Jan 9, 2015 - The Road To Vegas!
After a few amazing day's visiting the city of LA it was time to pull up the stakes, literally. That's what the RV sits on when it’s parked. We packed it all up, said our goodbyes to Los Angeles and got on the interstate bound for the fabulous city of Las Vegas! We got on the road and it was quite an interesting experience to have your new home come with you, unlike in hotels where you have to leave it behind. What a great way to travel. As we left the city limits the scenery around us started to change, less palm trees and more small...Jump to full entry
Jan 9, 2015 - Update :)
We started off our week by joining our friend Pat Cooper for lunch before she returns to Kalama, Washington. Enjoyed the soup & salad at Olive Garden as well as Pat's company, lol. Can't believe I forgot to take a pic! Tuesday we gave Onyx a much needed bath & then went to a matinee movie, seeing 'Unbroken', a 2014 American war drama film, produced and directed by Angelina Jolie, and based on the 2010 non-fiction book by Laura Hillenbrand Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. The film revolves around the...Jump to full entry
Jan 7, 2015 - Meeting up in Vegas
The first day of our trip. Barb and Alex drove from Tucson where they had spent a few days with Ellie and Allan. After dropping those two off in Phoenix, Barb and Alex drove through some desolate wilderness on the way to Vegas. I drove by myself from home. I stopped at state line for a little B & B (bathroom and blackjack). Due to the Computer Electronics Show going on, we had do get a less expensive hotel on Fremont Street (Fremont Hotel). This was a blessing in disguise, as it turned out to be a lot of fun and a nice alternative to the...Jump to full entry
Jan 2, 2015 - It's 2015!
I trust you all had a safe & happy New Years Eve & day? We chose to stay in & celebrate in a nice warm environment as it was windy & very cold here. Didn't seem to slow down the 340,000 folks down on the strip & downtown though, lol! Local TV does a nice job of broadcasting the event & even though we can see the fireworks from the living room window it's actually better watching them on the tube. Brother Larry even made it until midnight this year! Only because we were playing hand & foot but that's ok. Bonnie got a kiss from her hubby at...Jump to full entry
