Jan 30, 2017 - Home Sweet Home

We picked up the “Dream” today and moved back in. Yippee! Jerry had to use a snow shovel to make a path between the two RV’s. The campground also sent a man over with a snowplow to clear some of the snow in the driveway so we could bring the RV back in. We moved boxes and unpacked all day. Jerry brought the boxes to the door and I unloaded while he went for more. Jerry will be taking the loaner RV back in the morning. They did a great job on the step and other repairs. We are happy campers again and will be back on the road soon. Check back...

Jan 27, 2017 - RV & Pink Water

Our RV has been repaired and is ready to be picked up, the only problem, our campsite has about two feet of snow. We have to wait and hope it melts by Monday so we can take this one back and move back into ours. We love snow, but this is a bit much. :-) This is not normal for this area, they have broken all kinds of records for snow this year. At least they won’t have to worry about droughts for 2017. I am adding pictures of how deep the snow is, it is a beautiful winter wonderland. We are looking at the temperatures in Las Vegas, Vegas is...

Jan 20, 2017 - Lots of Snow

Just a quickie update to let our readers know we are back in the campground. The snow started falling this morning while we were packing to leave the hotel. We had a great time at the hotel, driving back to the campground was quite a challenge. It looked like a blizzard while driving through Reno. We got about eight inches today, that was on top of a foot we already had. Reno does not usually get this much snow, they said it was a record breaker on the news and the schools are all closed etc. We returned to our loaner RV and enjoyed...

Jan 16, 2017 - Peppermill Resort

We are spending a few days at the Peppermill Resort in Reno. This is a belated birthday trip, we were too busy moving from one RV to the other during my real birthday on the 9th. This is one beautiful hotel, just what the doctor ordered. :-) We are staying in one of the Peppermill Reno's Spa Suites with a 390 square foot room that features a relaxing Jacuzzi tub and a sitting area for two. The views from our windows are amazing. We especially love the huge videos all over the walls in the hotel. Joe Ness, who heads the resort’s...

Jan 15, 2017 - RV Repair & More

When we came to Reno in September we planned to explore for the first month and just have fun. After our month of fun, we planned to get appointments for our annual physicals and have any repairs needed on our motorhome. We stop somewhere in America once each year just to take care of ourselves and whatever needs fixing on the RV. If we didn’t, it would be just like your home or car, you would have a piece of junk before you know it if you don’t keep it up. :-) We are both finished with all our blood work and exams and we are both in great...

Jan 9, 2017 - Reno

Well even though we have been very comfortable at Reno, hopefully we are back on the road tomorrow. Dale took a walk down to the river even though they were warning to stay away. It hasn't gone over the bank you but close, there are only 2 bridges open over it the others closed. Along the strip the only thing we notice is that when we got here there was lots of snow, well the rain made that disappear. We are hoping to leave tomorrow but it sounds like it could be interesting for aways because the interstate was down to only one lane going...

Jan 8, 2017 - Flood

When we got up it was still raining, after a walk outside it was decided to stay another day. T isn't raining that hard but these desert cities aren't equipped for it. We had heard that roads by Sparks were already closed and travel wasn't recommended south. We are at Harrahs and have a view of the river and it is very high and and looks like Rapids it is running so fast. The hotel has two towers connected by a section that is only a few stories high and actually a street goes through the middle so there are a few escalators to navigate to...

Jan 7, 2017 - Reno

So far we have had nice rooms, good meals, vehicle working good and not sick but the weather isn't co-operating. It did finally get up to 48 f but we are still in snow. We drove 400 miles and ran into a snow storm for about 50 miles and then as soon as it started it was over, we were on the divided highway at least, closer to Reno it started to rain. We didn't have any problem getting a room, it is comped for three nights, but at first thought we would be here one but it was raining when we were walking the strip (it's not very long) so...

Nov 26, 2016 - Our First Snow

We got our first real snow this morning, about three inches. We have had quite a few days of scattered snow that didn’t stick. We know that most people in RVs run from the snow to the sunny states in the winter. ;-) We lived in Florida for so many years, snow is very special to us. We finished our outside decorations and have the lights sprinkling down the side of the RV. It is hard to capture with the camera, I got one that looks pretty good to give you an idea of how it looks. The snow also brought flocks of birds to our feeders, it is so...

Nov 24, 2016 - Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all our family and friends and all our journal readers. We hope you have a wonderful day. Thanksgiving to Christmas is our favorite time of year. We have already decorated inside. We put our tree on our table we make over our steering wheel. It’s the perfect place right in front of the window. We have a small tree that has built in lights that change into multi colors. We will be decorating the outside of our RV tomorrow. We also bought lights from Walmart, they spread about fifty feet of sparkling colors all the way...

Nov 16, 2016 - Super Moon and Snow

We are enjoying our time in Reno. We had a little bit of snow today, it was beautiful coming down. It didn’t stay long, we are hoping for more soon. We are getting a lot of birds at our feeders, the finches are all over the finch bags, we have Steller’s Jays, Scrub Jays, and much more including California Quails all over the ground. We also had a great view of the supermoon this week. I am adding the best picture I could get of it. It was outstanding! I am adding a paste below from Wikipedia for more information. I hope you enjoy the snow...

Oct 27, 2016 - Hotel Hopping in Reno

We are having a blast exploring the hotels in Reno. We visited the Grand Sierra for the 50th International Chili Cookoff. You could taste all the chili for a small fee. We enjoyed shopping at all the booths. We visited the incredible Peppermill Resort, it was outstanding!! We loved the HUGH video screen with fast changing videos of beautiful places, animals, fish, flags and much more. This is one luxury hotel, even the seats in the casino are huge and comfortable, done with incredible white leather. It was what I call the Cadillac of...
