Looks like the most snow we've had in Yerington, NV. this year. Our neighbor Stacey posted this picture on FB. Glad we're here in Salome, AZ where the temperature was 77 degrees yesterday!
Yesterday morning (Friday) we woke up at Big Bend of the Colorado State Park in Laughlin, NV. I had set the alarm for 0500 because we knew we'd lose an hour coming into Arizona and thought we'd get an early start for where ever we ended up. HA..we don't know what an early start is anymore! We had our coffee and I had tea, read and commented on our friends blogs and then our usual routine.
Made some delicious breakfast burritos with the OLE wraps. Ken had one with 2 eggs, swiss cheese, olives, mushrooms and spinach. Mine had onions, bell peppers, mushrooms and spinach w a little cheddar and egg beaters. YUM!
|Have only found these at Walmart, but oh so good and only|
Eventually we headed to the dump station and then on to Fort Mohave for a stop at Smith's and to fuel up. $2.21 a gallon with our discount. Finally time to hit the road.
Drove through Needles and hit I 40 to the exit for Lake Havasu. Beautiful drive through that area, the views never get old! Drove through Parker and then at Bouse we thought we might find a boon docking site, we did, but decided to travel on a little further.
|Needles, CA..this used to be the first stop as kids on our way|
to Arkansas every summer..enjoy Wendy and Linda..
|Boy do they price gouge!!|
In Salome, AZ there's a little RV park, The Desert Gem that is Passport America. $15.00 a night with the discount. It's stated in the description cash only. $16.25 for the night with full hookups and good size pull through sites. The lady in the office took our money and no information on us or vehicles. OK it's an easy check in. It's a small park, lots of ATVs here so I figure there's definitely riding close by. They've got orange and some grapefruit trees that you're welcome to take. Good thing Patsy mentioned that you can't eat grapefruit with Lipitor or I would be eating grapefruit this morning. :( I had no idea!
|The hand waved at us Patsy!|
|We had lunch at the overlook, so pretty..|
|Our site at the Desert Gem RV Park..|
|Not a bad place, especially for $15.00..showers, laundry|
We watched the movie Night at the Museum, (no tv service available) another one we've seen over and over but still love. I made some veggie tacos for dinner and we just had a relaxing night.
One of Eric and Christina's goats gave birth to a baby girl. It was cold and rainy over in Cool, CA. Ken called Eric and he was out in the little shed he made for the goats hooking up a heat lamp for the new little one and her mama. One more should be having a baby any day now. So cute!
|She is the cutest little thing!|
|Mason and Clarabelle, so cute!|
This morning we awoke about 0600 or so and are getting ready to move down the road. The plan, such as it is we'll end up about 101 miles further to Gila Bend, AZ. There's supposed to be a small campground, Passport America where we'll do some laundry etc.
Only took us 8 days to get out of our home state of NV. We are headed east now Don. Tennessee bound!
Guess it's time to get ready! Have a wonderful day!
