Sunday morning we got ourselves going and headed over to Margaritas once again for their awesome breakfast. The senior menu has a lot on it and very inexpensive. Ken had their chicken fried steak and eggs, comes with 1/4 pound breaded steak which was plenty with the eggs, hash browns and english muffin. I had their 2 egg ham and cheese, potatoes and 1 slice of sourdough. I was stuffed. Their food is consistently good and we've never had a bad meal there.
Back to the trailer and on the road. Beautiful drive to Winnemucca. When we left several weeks ago it was a winter wonderland, now the desert has turned a beautiful shade of green and only snow on some of the mountains. We hit the freeway at Carlin, NV. We were low on gas, town was a mile to the east. I told him we should get some gas, but town's in the wrong direction. hmmm..ok. About 10 miles west he decides that he can't make Battle Mountain so he turns back around and we end up back in Carlin. He does say "You were right" so I just had to do it..."I told you so!"..hhhahaha...

We pulled into New Frontier RV Park around 1500. Used our Passport America card (which is good for 2 nights) so because they are still winter rates, $10.64 for the night with full hook ups. It has to be a back in space, but their back ins are huge. Had a lovely night, tv and then we took the left over veggies from dinner and made some spaghetti squash with sauce, veggies and Ken had some ground turkey. Delicious, simple dinner.

Monday morning we took our time, had breakfast, showers and some clean up. Headed for the CPA's office and got our taxes. We had a short meeting with Abrams and figured a few things we could do so that we don't have to pay more next year. Honestly we don't make that much money but every year seems we have to pay more. uhhhh..
Back to camp, hooked up and we're on our way HOME! It was about 1300 when we pulled into Lowe's about 50 miles from home as it was time for lunch. Made some veggie, hummus wraps and we finished our trek home. Pulled into home about 1500 or so. Well, it looked beautiful!
I ran to town and got the mail, nothing too serious we missed. Made a quick stop at Scolari's for some veggies and home again. Ken did his thing and I unloaded the frig from the trailer. About 1830 our neighbors Joe, Stacey and Rylee came over to welcome us home. Had a great visit.

She loves Pioneer Woman as much as I do..:)
Ken was bar b quing a burger for him and a veggie patty for me. We ate late, but what's new about that?!
Waking up to partly cloudy skies this beautiful Tuesday morning. It's supposed to be 77 degrees today and am looking forward to that! We got home on the 48th day. Ken was definitely ready, me not quite so much but it's HOME! It was a great trip and I'm sure we'll be out and about over the spring and summer. With a sticks and bricks we're definitely more tied down especially in the summer with watering of trees. That's ok, it works for us.
Hope you're all enjoying your day! Travel safe!
