Jul 12, 2019 - Emerald Pool/Zion

Las Vegas, NV Although summer is not a good time to see the Emerald Pools of Zion at their best, we went anyway. Unfortunately, a rock slide closed the trail to Middle and Upper Emerald Pools so we had to settle for just Lower. The trail includes views of Lady Mountain, the Great White Throne, and Red Arch Mountain. Summer can be very hot and summer can start early here so the falls are down to a trickle and the “emerald” pool (colored by alga) was not in the least bit emerald. Since this was our last day in Zion, we took one last look at...

Jun 13, 2019 - Las Vegas NV - Las Vegas KOA at Sam's Town - Journey Campground

Spent a few days in Buckeye doing laundry, shopping, etc., then loaded the camper in temperatures above 105 degrees. Decided it was definitely time to leave Arizona to escape the heat. Headed for Vegas with a quick stop at an Escapees RV park in Congress AZ. Roger has always wondered how we stacked up to the weight limits for our rig and the Escapees will weigh it for you at the park up there. They were very thorough even taking into account our tire types and the year they were manufactured. They weighed the truck and camper together, then...

Retired at Last!

Jun 4, 2019 - Las Vegas

We had breakfast at Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bakery in the Venetian. Of course, we had to buy some bakery goods to take with us. Dinner was at Giada's Restaurant which is in the heart of the strip across from the Bellagio Casino/Hotel. We had excellent seating to be able to see the water fountain show at the Belagio. We again visited the Wynn Casino/Hotel. We were last at the Wynn on June 9, 2014. Since then, valuable art pieces have been removed, like the "Popeye" piece that was worth about a million dollars. Crude people had crossed the...

Jun 1, 2019 - Las Vegas

We’ve started week 3 of our 28 week trip. Week one, as you may remember, was our adventure of getting from Hawaii to Travis AFB, California and visiting old friends and relatives. Week 2 was attending the (maybe) final run of Rolling Thunder in Washington D.C and again seeing old friends. Week 3 has us stomping around Las Vegas for 12 days and visiting a very dear friend who is always the first to welcome us to Vegas. We finished our Week 2 by emptying our storage unit of all the leftover motor home “stuff”, along with our mini-prepper...

May 21, 2019 - Oasis RV Resort - (5/15 - 6/2/19)

We stayed at the Oasis RV Resort in Las Vegas. We have stayed here before and it convenient to everything we do. It is located right next to I-15. Our friends, Grace, Mike and Rosie, live less than 10 minutes away. We came to Las Vegas for two primary reasons: to visit our friends and Tim had to fly back to Virginia Beach for doctor appointments. He flew out on Saturday (5/18) and returned on the 26th. Before he left he got into 2 poker tournaments with not so much luck. He did have more luck with roulette and on a slot machine called...

Another adventure

Apr 13, 2019 - Las Vegas Springs Preserve

We arrived at about noon, and in the guide book it says 4 hours minimum time to see most. The book was wrong, or maybe I just read and take pictures of so many things. We need another full day to see the rest, and we will be coming back before we leave the area. It starts about 650 million years ago when Nevada, and Las Vegas was under water. Climate change has evaporated the water, and we now have a desert. There were no humans back then to start climate change, and it is a natural action on our wonderful planet.

Mar 4, 2019 - Family Time Vegas

We were up early this morning, we checked out of the hotel and headed to Vegas. It only took about an hour and a half to get to Kim’s home. We all had a great time visiting with family and getting to know Piper. She is only three months old as of March 6. She is so sweet and beautiful, I held her for hours and gave her several bottles. Every moment with her was precious. It was also a pleasure to meet Jared’s wife Madison. She is so beautiful, no wonder Piper is such a beauty with her and her good looking daddy, Jared. Jared broke his ankle...

Feb 3, 2019 - Las Vegas Baby!

We travelled a little north to Las Vegas. Mike had been reading a series of books called, The unbelievable Mr. Brownstone, by Michael Anderle. In them he talks about a BBQ joint in Las Vegas called Jessie Rae’s. So of course we had to come to Vegas to check it out. It is a tiny place but the BBQ was excellent. A lot calmer than is alleged in some of the books. We also stopped at the Pinball Hall of Fame. It is not a museum, but a place where you can walk in with a pocket full of quarters and play everything from Pac Man and Asteroids, to...

Kidds-OnTheRoad 2019

Feb 3, 2019 - Red Rock Canyon

We took a Sunday Drive out to Red Rock Canyon. Getting past the part where I have lost my National Park Pass, and had to pay $15 to get in, and the fact that my newly charged camera battery sat back at the trailer, which we did not have, and that it was about 45 degrees and very cold and windy, it was a pretty nice day. It is hard to believe but only twenty minutes outside of Vegas, is this incredible area. At great risk of my mom, who has a doctorate in Geology, I will try to put in my own words, what we saw. Mom, please stop rolling your...

Jan 24, 2019 - Las Vegas - Day 3

Day 16. Thursday 24th January Another flipping cold & sunny start to the day. I had another call from the wallet chap who still seemed to think I was up to something. He didn’t want to come & collect the wallet from me but preferred me to leave it at the camp office for him to collect. Again he threatened to call the police if it wasn’t at the office for him. I just handed it in to the office to get rid of it. It’s our last day in Vegas so we decided to lash out on two more $5 bus passes & go into the old area of Vegas to the Fremont Street...

Jan 23, 2019 - Las Vegas - Day 2

Day 15. Wednesday 23rd January The night was cold again but the sun was shining & the morning warmed nicely. The first thing I had to do was sort out the problem of getting cash from the ATMs as we were getting a bit low. Fortunately I had a debit card for our American account with me & after a call to our old bank in Florida I was able to get it activated for cash withdrawals so we should be alright, fingers crossed. Our 24hr bus passes were still valid up to 2.10pm so we thought that we would do a bus tour of LV to get our monies worth....
