Update: Hanging Out in Vegas

Actually, this isn't much of an update.  I just thought I'd post since I hadn't in a few days.  There really isn't a lot to add since the last one. Things have been peaceful and we’re still hanging out in the Vegas area. The weather has been cycling between nice days and not as nice days.  We’ve also had a bit of wind.  The weather changes often but it’s not cold and we’re thankful for that. 

We had a crew stop by and wash our dirty motorhome.  It was very windy on the day they came but it didn’t seem to hamper the job especially since they hand dried it.  Since Terry didn't want to wax it with extra sand or dirt on the rag, he put off giving it a good wax job until the following day.

The most excitement we’ve had this week was meeting a good friend.  Friends come and go in the RV world. After all, that’s why they have wheels.  Mary Jane was one of the first people we met when we started our journey on the road.  On Friday she was traveling through with a group but made plans for lunch with us and a hug or two on the way by.  We’ll be doing a little more catching up when we see her again in Quartzsite in January.


Guess what they have with them?  Kayaks!

Our meeting place was the Railroad Pass Casino.  It was an easy place for them to pull off the road with their rigs.  Since I had already donated another $20 to that casino a few nights before I had figured I wouldn’t be donating again.   However, we had to go since we were meeting them there.

What else have I been doing? Well, I’ve been riding my bike. It's funny how you don't realize there are hills around until you're on a bike. The only hills I like are the ones going down.  Then, of course, I took my sewing machine out of hiding and played with it a bit.  That was while I was taking a break from reading history books, scanning census files and fiddling with my genealogy and DNA matches.

Can you tell that I’m ready to move down the road?   We’ve been here a whole two weeks and the hitch is itching.    Our dog-sitter is here and we need to hang around at least until we get back from Virginia and our grandson’s Homecoming.  Then, we have Christmas ahead of us …. what to do?  what to do?   Will we move before then?  We know we need to think about it.

‘Tis life on the road.

Dieting is murder on the road.
Show me a woman who travels and I'll show you one who eats.


  1. Jeeze, I was about to send out an SOS 'cause I thought you might have fallen off a cliff or something. Not like you to not Blog for DAYS !!

    The Railroad Pass Casino is sure seeing a lot of you what with all those visitors stopping by.

  2. Thought maybe you'd got lost in one of those cavernous Vegas casinos and couldn't escape!

  3. So happy to see that Mary Jane seems to be having a good time. Decisions, decisions.

  4. Nice to run into friends again on the road. Two weeks in one spot is about as long as we can handle it too, travel safe.

  5. Gosh, and I thought I had a hitch itch. You are worse! And you are already down there south and yet....

  6. Nice to meet up with old friends!
    Have you visited, hiked or biked in Valley of Fire State Park? It's beautiful,there!

  7. Paul loved riding the rails in that area.

    I am sure you two are getting very excited to see Justin. I am getting excited to hear how he is doing.

  8. You want to leave Vegas before you start thinking about betting the RV:)


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
