Winnemucca and back!

Tuesday morning about 1000 we left home and headed for Winnemucca.  It was a beautiful drive with all the mountains covered in snow.  I've been that way soo many times so most of it is spent reading my kindle. 

WE were at Rye Patch Dam just outside of Lovelock, NV at about 1300.  I had made salads before we left home, so Ken found the campground and we enjoyed them in the camper.  Then on to Winnemucca and the New Frontier RV Park.  Love the winter rates!  We have Passport America, and they are one of those parks, so in the winter we pay $10.64 for a full hookup site.  It's a beautiful RV Park.  There wasn't hardly anyone there in the overnight spots and the next morning there still wasn't hardly anyone there.  
Rye Patch..fuller than we've ever seen it!

Looking at the campground..

When it's open they have showers and bathrooms...and it's FREE..
because it's a state park!

Our lunch spot...

Leaving Rye Patch

Coming into Winnemucca..

About 1700 our neighbor Joe who is working for NDF now, called and came over.  We headed over to Wingers and had a delicious dinner.  Since we have to be back next week for the actual Dr appt we'll probably meet up with him again.  

Yesterday morning got up and headed for the office to get blood taken and then back to the park and I made breakfast.  Then we headed back out, dropped of tax stuff and headed home.  Again a beautiful drive!   We arrived in Fernley about 1300 and stopped at Pioneer Crossing for a quick lunch.  Home by 1500.  
The Humboldt River in Winnemucca..

I love NV in the winter..so pretty

Ken's going to work on the water pump in the cabover.  He had it working before we left, but it wouldn't work on this trip.  Of course the refrigerator doesn't work in the cabover. So that's the part that will suck the most heading for Don's place in TN.  Living out of ice chests.  We had it fixed a couple of years ago, but after spending $300.00 then, don't want to do it again.  But that's ok, we'll make it.  This should be the last long trip in the cabover and Money Pit.  We're done buying tractors in TN..hahah..Next time we'll take the Jayco..

It's cold here this am (26 feels like 20) and a little cloudy..but it's Home!
