Sep 11, 2017 - Ogden UT

Mon, 11 Sep: May we never forget September 11, 2001... A travel day after fifteen days "vegging" at West Yellowstone. We thoroughly enjoyed our rest and relaxation, but it is time to get a move on. So, today we awoke our coach from her slumber and got ready to roll. And roll we did—280 miles of rolling. We got things ready for the road, checked and double checked our check lists, and eased out the deep forest. Bob drove the coach 2½ mile to a truck pull out while Sandi followed in the car. At the pull out we connected the car...

June 28, 2017, Today was just a travel day with a night stop in Ogden, Utah. Everything was going smoothly until all of a sudden the computer quit. Power plug came out put it back in but no luck, no computer. Luckily we run 2 GPS’s butt we did stop and get the GPS out of the car. As soon as we checked into our campsite I asked the young man checking us in for a Best Buy. He gave us excellent directions so as soon as we were st up off we go. Computer OK, just need a new battery, they did not have any, so it was off to Batteries + about a...

Aug 27, 2016 - Ogden Utah, north of Salt Lake City

Short drive of 150 miles to camp 2 days. Drove into Salt Lake City and did the bus tour around town. On the way back we drove to Antelope Island state park. It is the largest island in the Great Salt Lake. It is home to buffalo, pronghorn antelope (which it is named after) mule deer and big horn sheep. We only spotted the buffalo while we were there. The area smelled like sulfur, the same way as Yellowstone.

May 3, 2016 - Car repairs

I spent the day at the local Honda dealers. Our car has been noisy for years. When I had it checked out before, they said it was the tires. Three sets of tires later, the car was still noisy and getting worse, so I took it in to have it checked out. The front wheel bearings and hubs needed to be replaced. I spent the whole day sitting and waiting. They had to get the parts from Salt Lake City. The parts got here early in the afternoon but the technician only ordered one hub and one bearing. Someone had to go back to Salt Lake City to get...

May 2, 2016 - The Museums at Union Station, Ogden Utah

The high winds continued until early this morning but the gusts were down to around 55 mph maximum. Today, Tom and I went to the Museums at Union Station here in Ogden. We started at the small classic car museum which has cars ranging from a 1901 Oldsmobile to a 1937 Packard. Next we went through the Utah State Railroad Museum. It has exhibits on the construction of the transcontinental railroad. There are timbers and pilings from the Lucin Cutoff which crosses the Great Salt Lake. The original Golden Spike Safe is on display there. The...

Our 2016 Travels

May 1, 2016 - Visiting Mike & Diane in South Ogden, Utah

Yesterday, we went to the post office and grocery store in the morning and then spent the afternoon and evening visiting with Mike and Diane. They took us for a ride up through the mountains to Snowbasin, a ski area. There is still a lot of snow up at that elevation but the ski area is closed now. On the way back we rode through a scenic narrow canyon. Mike grilled steaks for dinner and then we watched the latest Star Wars movie. By the time we left, the wind was blowing and there was a high wind warning. We pulled the slides in and were...

Our 2016 Travels

Apr 29, 2016 - Century RV Park, Ogden, Utah

Today was a travel day. We left Capitol Reef National Park and headed to Ogden, Utah. We took Route 24 north to I-70. There were occasional showers and even snow flurries when we were up above 8,000 feet. There were still several inches of snow along the road up there. We took I-70 east one exit and then took Route 28 about 45 miles across to I-15. It is a good road through a valley with snow-capped mountains on both sides. It is an agricultural area with irrigated fields and herds of cattle. We got on I-15 in Nephi and took it north...

Our 2016 Travels

Aug 1, 2015 - On to Ogden

We decided we'd park the coach at Century RV in Ogden for Saturday and Sunday nights so we'd have power for the refrigerator and we'd splurge on a motel for the three of us. After a long, hard driving day, we arrived in Ogden, got the coach set up, and checked into the Super 8. Not only are all the campgrounds booked out, but the Super 8 informed us they were sold out completely for Tuesday night as well. So, we decided to lock in 3 nights. At least, we knew we'd be comfortable and the coach was within walking distance when we needed...

Summer 2015 & Beyond

May 1, 2015 - Ogden, UT

Fri, 01 May: A beautiful drive, and then traffic... Despite being parked right on Price's Main Street the traffic did quiet down and we both had a restful nite. Staying "for free" at Wal*Mart does have its costs. First is the fact that we always go into the store and buy stuff. Second, it is usually noisy, and the Price Wally was no exception on either point. We awoke when we awoke and enjoyed a quiet breakfast. Since we hadn't moved out of "travel mode" or disconnected the car, getting ready to hit the road was fairly expedient. Checking...

2015 Travels

Sep 11, 2014 - Ogden, UT

Thu, 11 Sep: The last road day for a while... The temperatures dropped into the high thirties in Rock Springs, and we were boondocking. That means heat is limited to available battery power. We tend to leave the heat off until it is time to arise, so the extra blankets were very welcome around 0200. We awoke a bit after six, got the coach warmed up and boiled water for tea. Once our caffeine level was sufficiently high we rustled up breakfast and got things ready to roll. Since we were boondocking there was little to do so we rolled our...

2014 Travels

Jun 14, 2014 - A Train Day

Driving south from Pocatello on our way out of Idaho, we finally see the mountains that we had expected to see in Idaho. We head towards Utah and a day of railroad history. Our first stop is Promontory Point where, as anyone with any knowledge of railroading knows, is where the golden spike was driven which connected the lines from the east and the west to make the Transcontinental Railroad. The Union Pacific started from Omaha and the Central Pacific started from Sacramento, and while they missed their connection, the 2 groups managed to...
