Apr 10, 2018 - My Eyes Adored You

It’s early 1971. I’m 7 years old and just got the newest edition of Tiger Beat. I page through, then stop. The dark, perfectly manicured dark hair. Those penetrating brown eyes. Perfect eyebrows and lips. Then, the teeth. Oh, those gleaming white teeth. Who is this boy?? I must know... Then, I hear the voice. “I love the little wiggle in your walk...”. Sweet and Innocent. His name? Donny Osmond. I was captivated. And that captivation would end up lasting a lifetime. Fast forward to April 2018. My journey through Washington now complete. It...

Gypsy Journey

May 23, 2017 - provo, ut

At the Elks RV Park in Provo Utah. The views of the mountains are breathtaking and still have over 8 ft. of snow on them. They were still advertising skiing on the weekends just up the road in Salt Lake City. We played golf with all the beautiful mountains in the background. The golf course we chose to play was ready for the amateur qualifying next month and the senor match play qualifying rounds the following month. The greens are bent grass and the fastest I have ever played. A great day on a great golf course. We tried to buy a few...

Jul 31, 2015 - A VERY long day

We left Pachunga's RV park, in Temecula, at the crack of dawn in order to get to Redlands RV by 8am. We made it by 7:50! Chris was waiting for us and kindly solved our inverter problem with half an hour. Was only in need of a "reset", thank goodness. On the road by 9:30, we were originally scheduled to drive to Las Vegas our first night, but we're already delayed one night, so we pushed on to our reserved spot for night two in Provo. Driving virtually all day with stops only for a quick McDonalds lunch and fuel fill-ups, we arrived in Provo...

Jul 24, 2015 - Washington, Montana, Idaho, Utah

We left Oregon for the RV Park in Blaine, Washington, about 20 miles from the Canadian border and 100 miles north of Seattle. A very nice park with three swimming pools – adult, family and children – and two adult SPAs and Fitness Centers (I saw the Fitness Centers as I walked to the Jacuzzi). The visit at this park, where I am a member, makes up for the $200 I paid for a week in Oregon. As a member I am supposed to be charged $1.00 a day plus extra for 50 amps, wifi and/or cable. As it turned out, I received all that at NO COST. I don’t...

2015 Travels

Jun 11, 2015 - Provo, UT.

We are heading North to Provo, UT for a 3 nite stay. From here we will visit Salt Lake and other sites. We came across a LDS Temple in Manti. It sits on top of a hill and is visible for miles. It is very old, built in 1888. It is the third Temple built west of the Mississippi. We are staying at a KOA campground. The sites seem close together because we are parked back to back and share our front yard. We had no problem with it. It a very clean and well run RV park.

Sep 29, 2014 - John Was Right = Dang!

Sunday morning . . . up and ready at the crack o' dawn again . . . holding our breaths . . . will the jacks come up?? Nope. They did not. A quick check of the fluid container shows that it is once again empty. We had stopped and bought 4 qts. of hydraulic fluid so we were prepared. We put two into the container and once again held our breaths. I remembered how Mark got them to work last time and repeated the process, and it worked! The jacks went up but with a scraping noise. ugh -- John wanted to drive through Salt Lake City on Sunday. I...

Pretty Damn Nice!

Aug 22, 2014 - Bryce Canyon City to Provo

We traveled 215 miles today going from Bryce Canyon City to Provo. It was our shortest drive yet, only 3 hours and 50 minutes. The drive was pretty. Coming out of Highway 12, we again got to see the beautiful Red Rocks in Dixie National Forest. We then headed north on highway 89, seeing various rocks, lots of what we called sage brush, lush green valley areas, the Sevier River which traveled along 89 with us for some time before connecting with Highway 15 which took us back to a busy road and lots of cars. We did find it interesting that...

Jun 10, 2014 - Where ever the road may go pt 4

Hi everyone We have had a busy few days since our last update. After leaving Chattanooga we drove into Atlanta to attend the Blade Knife show which runs for 3 days . We have attended this show on 3 previous occasions and usually stay at the Sheraton hotel which is across the road from the show, but at a cost,of $180 per night, this was not in line with our holiday budget, so took the gamble and stayed at LaQuinta which was 1 1/2 miles from the show and was a great hotel and best of all $71 per night, the view over to Atlanta was great and...

May 29, 2014 - Where Ever The Road May Go pt. 1

Hi everyone An update on our adventures It was Memorial Day in the USA last weekend, so the roads were busy with everyone heading into the mountains for the weekend. We took the opportunity of driving to Park City for the day, this is an old 1880 mining town which has been taken over by the ski set, so a wonderful mix of old home on steep narrow streets to amazing multi million dollar ski homes, this is also where the yearly Sundance film festival is held. The weather was perfect. On Monday we headed in the opposite direction over the great...

May 25, 2014 - First week

Hi everyone Well we have now had our first week since leaving Perth for the USA. We flew from L.A to Provo in Utah. Provo is a great place with the Great Salt Lake on one side and the Washtah Mountain range on the other, so everywhere you look the view is amazing. Provo is also a college town with the Morman Brigham Young University, so most people are young. We are staying at the Marriott Hotel and negotiated a great rate plus upgrade to a suite with kitchen facilities so we can cook our own meals. So far our food/coffee/jack Daniel bill...

May 9, 2014 - Provo, UT

Friday, May 9, 2014 Today was a driving day to Provo, UT from Moab. We got an early start and had an easy drive through the Colorado Plateau until we reached the mountains. UT6 climbs over and through the Manti-la and Uinta National Forests. The maximum elevation was Soldier Summit at 7,500 feet. We encountered some moderate rain that was trying to turn to snow at the high elevation. The drive through the mountains was a tiring 50 miles and we were glad to see I-15 near Provo. We are dry camping at Rowley’s Red Barn, a “Harvest Host”. The...
