Home and now waking up in Winnemucca!

Greetings from beautiful, COLD Winnemcuca, NV!  It's 24 degrees with a feels like 16 this morning at 0550!  Thank goodness for heating in the trailer!  We are parked at the New Frontier RV Park.  It's where we like to stay when we're here because with our Passport America pass we can stay for about $10.00 a nice ($21.28) for two nights.  It's a beautiful park with lots of open spaces.  Our favorite is #29 as it's on the end and near the bathrooms if we need them.  
I-80 on our way to Winnemucca..

While we were home for a few days Ken put Christmas lights on the outhouse.  It looks so cute! We haven't lit them yet but I can tell I'm really gonna like it.  He was going to get them on the bunkhouse, but we had such wind gusts, you couldn't stand to be out there.  We haven't had wind like that in months.  

I put some garland up in the bunkhouse and then decorated the house except for the tree.  We'll do that on Wednesday or Thursday.  With Ken's surgery coming up next Tuesday, we'll try to get as much done as we can as he'll be down for a bit.  Looks like a cold spell (and this isn't) coming next week so we'll need
Our mountains had a little snow..

Yesterday morning (Monday) we met Joe for breakfast at Dini's.  Yummy and cheap.  We waited for the mail person to come as I was expecting a Christmas gift and didn't want to leave it there for the two days.  We left about 1100 for our 3 1/2 hour drive to Winnemucca.  Got hooked up and then enjoyed the afternoon and evening here in our little mansion!  I did a little cyber shopping and then we watched tv till time for bed.  
Our friend George gave us this mining pan..Ken getting barbed
wire for the hanging

This was painted in 1975..love it, sure captures NV!

We're up at 0500 enjoying our coffee and blogging friends.  We'll head out and hopefully make Walmart, Big R and Ron's seed and feed before my DR appointment at 1130.  

We decided to stay 2 nights just because we can and we'll head home on Wednesday.  

I meant to post this a couple of weeks ago when son, Bryan sent it to me.  His 2004 Toyota Tacoma just turned over 300,000 miles!  Great job Toyota and Bryan for taking such good care of it!

Have a great day!
