We're on the road...waking up at Armagosa Valley RV Park...

Had a good weekend...Our neighbors invited us out on Saturday for a few drinks in town..so you know how that goes..but it was fun! We don't go out very often and it Yerington it consists of this little bar with a bunch of regulars. 

So Sunday was spent mostly on the couch, watching football playoffs and in-between loading  up the trailer to get gone. 

Monday morning, Joe came over and the three of us went out to breakfast at Dini's.  They've got their good breakfasts on sale this month for $2.99.  Can't beat that.  Said good bye and thank you to Joe and we got out of there about 1/2 later. 
Ken checking out the trailer..It's a teeth chattering 25degrees

About 30 miles from home..notice the snow on the mountains this year

Had a beautiful drive from Yerington to Armagosa Valley 277 miles from home.  Last night we decided to head for Valley of Fire State Park for a few days.  It's not only gorgeous it's FREE camping!  
The way we like to travel..highway 95! 

I think I take this pic every year..lots of snow this year looking over to
Highway 395...Notice the blue skies!

Not sure if the mifi works there so it may be a few days before i update again.  

Posting from Laughlin, NV on 01/19/17....

Well, I guess the above post didn't post and I thought it did...so I am just going to continue from here...

We left Armagosa RV about 1000 hours on Tuesday.  We knew we didn't have a real long day as we were headed for Valley Of Fire State Park just outside of Las Vegas.  We made it there in time to have lunch in our camp spot. Ken unhooked the trailer while I made some of Ree's yummy hummus and veggie wraps for lunch.  We were really surprised as last year there were tons more people camping.  Of course we're a few weeks earlier than what we were last year and that could be the reason.  The BIG TENT event has started in Quartzite so that could be the reason.  Any way we had a lovely evening with a nice fire.  But it was COLD.  Because this park is a State Park, and they have no hookups we stayed for FREE and got our entrance to the park for FREE...We had thought about staying 2 nights but decided that we'd move on to Big Bend of The Colorado in the morning.  
Valley of Fire State Park...

Our campsite..beautiful

Yesterday we got up and got going another pretty short day of travel and we arrived at Big Bend of the Colorado State Park.  We took the scenic route out the west entrance of the park and drove along Lake Mead until the exit near Boulder City.  We stopped between Vegas and here and had lunch in the trailer and then moved on.  

Along the road to Lake Mead

Love the traffic

Lake Mead

Got here early afternoon and I made a few phone calls to see about finding a dentist and have a tooth pulled.  Got an appointment for Thursday with Jennings and Larsen Family Dentristy..After our first night I woke in the morning to half of my back tooth missing..where it went i haven't a clue but it was jagged and was really hurting the side of my tongue.  uhhh...After so many bad experiences as a child and then again as an adult, I hate the dentist. But what ya gonna do.  

Had a nice evening, Ken bar qued some pork chops, I made mashed potatoes and italian green beans for dinner..what a feast!  We had a nice evening and then off to bed as we knew we wanted to get an early start in the morning. 

After a yogurt breakfast we headed out this am and found the dentist office over in Bullhead City.  Made a run to Walmart and then back to the office for my appointment.  Well, it wasn't that bad, a couple of ideas, cap it..file it or pull it.  The dentist and staff were really good!  So the decision was made to file it down, since it was above the nerve.  Quick and easy and i was out of there.  Finished our shopping at Walmart and then took the long way back to camp through Needles CA and the Needles Highway, basically Route 66 from Needles to camp.  

It's been raining off and on all day but we're nice and cozy inside.  We plan on staying here until Monday.  We've got full hookups and tv reception for $10.00 a night.  A lovely, quiet site and beautiful views.  Temps are in the 50's today so a lot warmer than home. I'll get some pics in the next couple of days...
