Aug 24, 2015 - Friendly Caliente locals and Las Vegas

Before heading to Vegas for some RnR we spent the night at Mull's Midway Motel in sleepy and hot Caliente. It is a small town in Nevada a few hours north of Vegas. At the bar that night we met Brad a retired Las Vegas motorcycle cop. He'd never been to Australia but was very knowledgeable about it. He said he'd always dreamed of going walkabout outback especially after watching the movie Crocodile Dundee. He offered to buy us shots but it was a little too early in the evening as we hadn't eaten. When it came time to pay the barman said the...

Aug 8, 2015 - Vegas baby!

After a good breakfast at the Hilton we loaded up the 550 and headed south again on the I15. We left at 9 and stopped for a coffee and bio break at 10:30. After a time consuming fuel stop (3 Greyhound coaches stopped at the same time) we kept going and arrived in Las Vegas 670km and 6.5hrs after starting. The route took in some really spectacular scenery as the temperature continued to rise. Although she was getting a little hot as we arrived in Vegas, the 550 handled the trip well.

Jul 31, 2015 - On the road to Vegas

We left Moab behind on July 31st. The trip was nice & the girls were plugged into their DSI 3D games (so they were happy). They did keep their cameras close by, but the games were front & center. lol We originally were to stop in St.George, Utah for a nights stay, but we arrived in town to early to stop...so we pushed on to Vegas. We got into town & hit bumper to bumper traffic on I-15......how we hate commuter traffic. Ever wonder why its often referred to as rush hour traffic ?? No one is rushing anywhere. We stayed at the Oasis RV...

Jul 31, 2015 - It's VEGAS, Baby !!

I think we ended the last entry on Utah on a good note, but things sure went south after that. We drove to Nellis Air Force Base outside of Las Vegas without any (new) problems. We stored the RV at the Nellis storage lot and drove the Jeep to the Embassy Suites. We checked into a two room suite with a nice view. This place also has a daily free “Happy Hour” with a free bar (well drinks only) and some small snacks like crackers, cheese and fruits, but they out do themselves with the complimentary “full” breakfast. Unlike other hotels that...

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 - 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 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 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...
