May 26, 2011 - To Wells, NV

Our next stop is Wells, NV - why?? - it's the right distance between Winnemucca, NV and Sun Valley, ID. Why 5 days?? - I didn't want to not have a place to stay for the Memorial Day Weekend - silly me - probably could've found a lot of other places. Oh well, at least I had 5 days to update our Trip Journal :) :)

Going Down MC's-LANE

Apr 8, 2011 - Wells, Nevada (Day four)

Snow, Snow, Snow.\ Well, as I was thinking yesterday, today should be the day of reckoning – or at least the day of truck repairs. But, of course, there IS an inch of snow on the ground!! Okay, the mechanic was expected to be there around 6:30, so I’ll have breakfast and go down there around 8:00 to see what’s happening. Well, I didn’t quite make it to 8:00, as was anxious to get moving. I’m still thinking 3:00 p.m., 2:00 if I’m lucky. I get down there – no mechanic yet. Should be here any time. Meanwhile, the shop owner comes in and hands...

Apr 7, 2011 - Wells, Nevada (day three)

Waiting, waiting, waiting. Well, today should do it, right? The day of reckoning, so to speak. The guy said he’d be at the shop at 6:30, and was hopeful of the part getting there soon afterwards. Of course, the other one small item I failed to mention is that this pump repair would be an all-day job. So if the part arrives early, I’m thinking, maybe 3:00 p.m., 2:00 if I’m lucky. So, I go down there around 8:00, thinking I might find the guy under the hood, parts scattered all over, in great anticipation that I will soon be on the road. Of...

Apr 6, 2011 - Wells, Nevada (day two)

The adventure continues. So much for beating the weather! Last night it got down to 20.5 degrees, and due to the light snow last night, the roads were a little on the frosty side. So, I waited for awhile, then went for a little walk and talked to a NDOT guy that said the road I was going to go over was in good shaper – this was after they cleared a wreck. The sky was clear, the sun was out, and it looked like a good day for traveling – after warming up a bit. But by now it was above freezing, so things were looking up. So I went back to...

Apr 5, 2011 - Wells, Nevada

Full of Surprises. I was attempting to put some miles behind me today, in anticipation of getting through most of Oregon while I had a window of opportunity – in other words, before the nasty weather started. And in keeping with my desire to take the secondary roads, I cut over at Salt Lake, with the anticipation of going up through the middle of Oregon. Again the drive up was very scenic. There was even some snow on the ground alongside some of the roadway. The temperature here was on the cool side, rarely getting above 50 degrees, with...

Sep 19, 2010 - Off to Wells Nv

We left Winnemucca a little before 9 AM and arrived at Wells, 171 miles down the road, around noon. There's not too much in Wells so Kay made margarita's and Barb made nachos...yumm! It's a small park and really no place to walk so we all got really lazy and took naps resting up from the "long" drive and getting ready for tomorrow's trek.

Our 2010 RV Trip

Aug 12, 2010 - Reno, Nevada - Wells, Nevada

Packed up and stopped around the corner for a coffee and a tea. While having our coffee, we decided we'd each take another 20 and try the casino - one last time. Within the first 10 minutes we both lost our money and then decided another 20 each. I was on a hot machine that doubled my money, down to $3.00 but by the time we left I had doubled my money. Chris had an even better machine and came away ahead. We figure with all our wins/losses at all the casino's, we are up $58.00. Not much but it could have been worse and it was fun. With the...

Jun 9, 2010 - Wells

It’s time for a stop just long enough for our mail to catch up with us. We realized we hadn’t had our mail sent to us since before Marty and Steve’s wedding last month! In order for our mail to catch up with us we have checked into the Mountain Shadows RV Park for the next seven days. As is turns out the Wells Post Office is directly across the street from the RV park… lucky us! It is still very much spring here in Wells, NV. The temperatures are predicted to be in the upper 60s this week so it should be really nice hiking weather. There...

May 18, 2010 - Wells, NV

Campground: Mountain Shadows RV Park We left this morning at 8:20 am and arrived in Wells, NV at 4:30 pm. The drive out of Sac was really easy. In fact the traffic all the way was not an issue. There was fresh snow at Donner Pass and it was cold. We had a tail wind all the way. The Humboldt Range here at Wells is covered with snow. Crossroads RV Park where we stayed last year is closed. Mountain Shadows is nice but more expensive. It's cold!

Jun 24, 2009 - Across the salt flats

I am currently on catch up mode...at the Library here in Napa, which is beautiful. So text will be short and dependent upon my memory, which is as reliable as the internet service that I've had. This day was flat...all day long. From outside Salt Lake City, where we saw a bit of the Salt Lake...deposits of salt were seen everywhere, and continued into NV. Nothing remarkable...a long, flat drive. Along the way, this interesting symbol, maybe related to the Olympics. We didn't stop at Bonneville...but were very near by. There were...

Jun 24, 2009 - The First Day

We got out of the house just about on time (10:30 a.m.)on May 31, 2009. We could have left much earlier, but I decided I had to put clean sheets on the bed for the house/pet sitters and clean towels in the bathroom. We said goodbye to Marne and Toby and it was really difficult to leave them. I told them both to get plenty of sleep and to Marne I said that when we got home, I expected her bulging disk to be all better. All she wanted was to get in the truck no matter what. At 2:25 p.m., we stopped at a rest stop in Cosgrove, NV. We have gone...
