Oct 5, 2018 - Ogden, UT

The wind and rain continued all night and into this morning. We finally got far enough west of it so see some sun. Once we hopped onto I-84 West in Utah and drove thru the gorgeous Utah canyons, the temps warmed up into the 50’s. I called this campground while we were stopped for lunch, and the lady on the phone assured me that the site she’d chosen for us was very spacious. NOT!!!! We are so close to our neighbor that we barely had room to open our slide outs. We do just barely fit in the site, but we have a tree, a sign, and several rigs...

Sep 14, 2018 - back to Ogden

After a big breakfast of eggs, bacon, and a fruit-covered crepe, I left Kemmerer about 11 AM to take the scenic route back to Ogden. It took over 3 hours, but it was on a two-lane highway into Utah and over the Wasatch mountains. I saw a lake (reservoir) that I might be able to kayak in and parts of the ride were scenic with actual trees! At the ridge, I was at about 9000 feet above sea level. After I got parked, a gentleman came along and introduced himself as Jay. He asked if I was a member of WINS so I asked him what made him ask that...

Sep 5, 2018 - Sierra RV

I had an appointment with Sierra RV for 2 PM today and was due at the Mobile Home/RV Park this afternoon but they let me come in early so I could find my spot and drop my car. Sierra is only 10 miles down the road! I spent the midday looking for a place to stay around Yellowstone but was not successful. Campgrounds are either closed for the season, close this weekend with no vacancies, can't handle my big rig, or cost way too much. I can go to try to get a site at a campground that is first come/first served but what will I do if I can't...

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...

Jun 28, 2017 - Computer problems

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...

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...
