Ely, NV to Winnemucca, NV and now we're HOME!!

Saturday night we had awesome Mexican food at Margaritas the Mexcian place inside the Prospector hotel.  It was so delicious and more than enough so got a goodby bag to go.  It was very chilly outside so back into the trailer we went for the night. 

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...
Ely, NV has quite a few of these older motels..

Love this cutie! Notice the Flag and the wind..

This was all white when we left home..

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.

Miss Rylee in her hat we brought her from The Mercantile
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! 


  1. I think I am getting it right this time...LOL Glad to read you and Ken are home safe and sound. I am sure it is a very good feeling plus 77 degrees is not to hard to take. I am sure it will be cooler in Escanaba when we pull in at the end of the month. I always look forward to getting back and then I start thinking about our next adventure. Looking forward to our next Happy Hour".

    The snow on the top of the mountains is really beautiful. I will say it again you have a beautiful place.

    1. Looks like the weather is going up and down all week, but that's spring for ya! I know summer will be here before you know it and hoping to have some grandkids for a bit and where to take them? thank you for saying our place is beautiful. We love it, but it's not for everyone. It's simple and easy to take care of and a lot of love has gone into making it what we want :)

  2. Now home safe again and soon getting ready for another adventure? Stalest you will be having decent weather.

    1. Our weather changes this time of year like crazy, but you know all about that..we take what we get and hope for warmer temps. Always looking forward to the next adventure!

  3. Welcome Home!! Yay, you made it safely and lucky you arrived to beautiful weather. I can hardly wait until we get some warmth again. My body, like the robins, is saying "what the heck??" ;}
    enjoy your beautiful property!

    1. I know how you like your warmth Patsy! We are happy to be here and are enjoying just looking at the mountains around us. I cleaned out the trailer yesterday, can't believe how much goes into a 19 foot trailer, hahaha..

  4. Welcome home!! Always nice to get back home, isn't it? Or at least to more familiar surroundings. Looks beautiful there, love the snow on the mountains and that would be as close as I want to be to any snow. Soak up that heat and enjoy. We're looking forward to some warm temperatures as well for a day or maybe two before we have that frigid stuff again.


    1. I couldn't believe how much snow had melted hopefully it keeps doing that haha. Weather is unpredictable this time of year. Enjoy the heat while you've got it, before you know it will be summer!

  5. Cheryl and I both laughed about your 'gas' episode. We both said....'Sounds familiar'! OK, so us guys aren't always right. At least Ken didn't make you walk 10 miles with a gas can! :-)
    happy to hear you made it home safe. Don't forget to post more yard art.

  6. Yep we're glad to be home (Ken especially)..I'll get you some pictures..glad you like our yard art ::)
