Jun 14, 2012 - Thursday 14th June

We both had a good night’s sleep in Moab, breakfasted at the hotel and left by 9.00am. We were a bit later than usual as I’d been sussing out hotels for the next couple of nights. We’d decided to stay in Logan, Utah, tonight. I did some research on hotels but the first two or three I phoned were full. Finally I found a room at the Best Western Weston, so I keyed that into Hilda 1 while Hamish filled the car with gas and washed the windscreen. It was a fairly uneventful trip heading north to Salt Lake City. We were on roads we’d not been on...

Jul 31, 2010 - Hill AFB, Side Trips to Ogden, Huntsville and Logan

We have really enjoyed being here at Hill AFB in northern Utah and seeing the various sites around the base and surrounding communities. I have compiled some of our short day trips and a few sights around the base for your viewing pleasure. One of the short trips we made was to the darling town of Ogden, located at the northern edge of the Wasatch Mountains and 35 miles north of Salt Lake City. Ogden was one of the West’s most important rail hubs at the beginning of the 20th century and in the downtown area vestiges of the city’s...

Jul 4, 2010 - July 4th activities

July 2, 2010 Cache Valley Cruise-in, Logan Utah The Cache Valley Cruise-in is a custom car show like no other car show. This year there were 820 entries. The two day show is set in the Cache County Fairgrounds under the huge shade trees and all of the cars are on the lawn. Vendors of all kinds are present for food, drinks, spare auto parts, pin stripers, detailers, etc. I spent about four wonderful hours wandering through the rows and rows of beautiful cars. I am only including my favorite photos. There is a drawing on Saturday for the...

Jun 29, 2010 - Tony's Grove

Tuesday June 29, 2010 Tony’s Grove We packed up a picnic lunch and PeeWee too in the truck and headed up Logan Canyon toward Bear Lake. It is 45 miles to Bear Lake and Tony’s Grove is about half way to the lake. The road there is a twisty two lane road most of the way but it is paved and 45 - 55 miles per hour speed limit. The side road to Tony’s Grove is a steep climb up to 7, 000 ft and a beautiful alpine lake and snow capped mountain tops. The only table we could find was in the direct sun and it was warm. We ate our picnic of cheese...

Jun 23, 2010 - Art on The Lawn

Monday June 21, 2010 Jen and Kim Are in the Neighborhood Jennifer and Kim came thru Logan on their way home from Yellowstone NP. Jennifer had 348 photos of the park. I hooked her camera up to Judy’s HP laptop and we previewed her photos of the wildlife in the park and the scenery. I am sure Jen will be putting the edited shots online. We went to Angie’s for brunch and we were amazed by the amount of food that showed up on the plate! I ate the whole thing! In the afternoon we drove Jen over the hill to Ogden to meet up with Kim. We really...

Jun 21, 2010 - Summerfest and Fathers' Day

June 18, 2010 Summerfest- Logan Tabernacle Park A three day art, craft and food festival was held downtown Logan at the Tabernacle Park. The park is one city block and the LDS Tabernacle is the center piece. The Greens and the Funks met us there and we walked the perimeter booths and then the interior booths as well. Our friend Jerry Funk entered two photos in a contest/silent auction. One of his photos was purchased at the show. The festival had a real old fashioned feeling to it with local state entertainment, food vendors and local...

Jun 17, 2010 - Logan day 4

June 17, 2010 Logan UT Last night a thunderstorm came in from the north-west and rained very hard here in Logan and gave the surrounding Wasatch Mountain Range a fresh coating of snow. It was 35 degrees at 6am when PeeWee wanted to take his morning pee. Once he was out for a few minutes he wanted to go right back into the trailer to his nice warm crate. During the storm I went to Red Box and rented Crazy Heart with Jeff Bridges and Invictus with Matt Damon. Jeff Bridges played his part so well, you wondered if he hadn’t been down the road...

Jun 14, 2010 - Logan Utah

Sunday June 13, 2010 Logan, UT Traveland RV Park- http://www.travelandrvpark.net/ We arrived in Logan, Utah about 2:30pm. The office at Traveland was closed. A sign in the window announced that they would reopen at 2:00pm. I noticed that someone was still in our reserved space. Not a comforting sight. Our experience last summer here was that the manager was flaky. He wasn’t here a lot. It seems nothing has changed. I decided to walk down to our space and see if anyone was home. A nice guy and two bull sized bulldogs came out of the...

Jul 3, 2009 - Logan, UT Area

We have stayed in an RV Park in Logan, Utah since the 21st of June. We needed a little downtime. I had to get the oil changed on the pickup, found out I had a broken shock and took it to the Ford house. Also, one of the jacks on the front of the RV sheared a pin, and I had to get a new jack ordered in from CA. The RV service center here is supposed to get the parts in on July 6, and we will leave here and head back to Amarillo on Tuesday the 7th. Thus, this may be the last update until we are on the road again. We did a little hiking and...

Jun 27, 2009 - Logan, Utah

June 26, 2009 We left Provo in a light rain. We found I-15 and set our GPS for Salt Lake City. We stopped at Pony Express RV Park near the Salt Lake Airport on I-215. The park is new and close to town but we made reservations for the 3rd to 7th of July. Jennifer will fly in on July 1 and we will drive in from Logan to pick her up. We will be close to Salt Lake City for the 4th of July activities and the airport when it is time for Jen to fly home on the 6th. We had an operator brain fart on the way to Logan. In Brigham City we wanted to...

Jun 25, 2009 - Golden Spike National Historic Site

We are in Logan, UT. This is the home of Utah State University. The town is very LDS (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.) During the summer when most of the students are away, the college apartments rent out to senior citizens(mostly from AZ). The locals call them "summer citizens." The apartments are fully furnished -- all you need is your dishes, linens and TV. We took a side trip over to Promontory Summit to see the site of the Golden Spike. For you historical buffs on May 10, 1869, two railroad companies, Union and Central...

RV There Yet?

May 19, 2009 - Packing

Who would have thought you would need so much STUFF just to make a simple little cross-country road trip. I blame it on the kids, however I think most of the treats are for me!! We are frantically trying to get everything ready to go for our big road trip. We have never done anything this big, so it is a little nerve-racking. We've got meals planned and half-packed. Tonight I need to work on clothes. Garrett is so excited he keeps making little piles all over the house of things he needs to make sure he brings on the trip: pencils, books,...
