Pahrump, NV

We are now staying in a different location and I will post some photos at a later time.
But first, let me tell you about our two weeks in a town we'd never been to before, Pahrump, NV.
We normally take 95 to Sparks, NV and then go on through Las Vegas and then head to AZ via Boulder City and on into Kingman or head to Yuma.  BUT, this time, we took a different path, turning off 95 and taking Hwy 160 to Pahrump, NV.                                    I loved the desert and mountains leading all the way into Pahrump.  We had no trouble finding the Escapee Park named Pair A Dice

We arrived on the afternoon of October 30th.There were no available spaces, so we were allowed to use their boon docking area to set up for the night.  We ended up staying there for two nights and the view was wonderful!

Here’s the tree that we were parked close to.  Very interesting.  Actually, we had a better view of the mountains surrounding the park, in the boon docking area than we did when we finally got p…

What a restful time we had in Sparks, NV.  We got into the Marina RV park after dusk.  We were checked in and a guy on a golf cart took us to our site.

My friend, Pat, brought us over two big jars of homemade soup, (as soon as we arrived and got set up)  Two different kinds of soup, plus rolls.  Also, she made a quiche for our breakfast the next  morning.  She said that she didn't want me to have to cook for awhile!

What a thoughtful thing to do!!!  That was such a blessing!!

The next morning, she came back and picked me up and took me to her home so we could visit and PLAY all day!!  She had invited some other gals that make cards, as well, and one I hadn't seen in years and years.  What a great day of visiting!!!

They hadn't heard of an Eclipse Card, so Pam took me back to the RV (which was only about a mile away) and I got the stuff for each of us to make one.  Pat supplied the cardstock.  Oh what fun!!!

David had things he had to get done, so he opted to stay back at …

Finally on our way to a new adventure!!

We had a great time in Culver, OR visiting with friends and family!  Although, we were also working our bums off getting things organized for a yard sale and then getting what was left back into storage.  We did make quite a dent in the possessions in our storage unit.  Hopefully, by next Spring, we'll be totally FREE.

After we got everything out of the storage unit, we put everything behind our 5th wheel in piles.  Believe me, this was only a part of it.  Thanks to our friend, Bill....and also Richard for helping us.  We'd have never gotten it done by ourselves.
 As we had time, we went through each box and decided what to do with it.  Some was put in the yard sale, some was given to friends and a lot was donated.
Oh gosh, the inside of our 5th wheel looked really bad till we got everything gone through.  Should have taken a photo just before we left with it all clean and tidy, once again.  :-)

We spent almost 3 weeks in Culver, visiting friends and our Granddaughter and her …

Catching up!!

What have we been doing for the past month? 

We spent a few weeks up in WA and visited with our Granddaughter and our friends.
We stayed on a dairy farm next door to some of our friends who snowbird in the winter months and live on a dairy farm in the summer.



This was an almost daily scene.  I got to see 5 calves after they were born.  This little guy let me get pretty close for a photo :-)

We take our granddaughter, every year, to The Patch in Woodland, WA.  It's a yearly tradition. She gets a huge kick out of getting to choose her own pumpkin.  We tell her she can have any pumpkin she can actually carry out of the pumpkin patch.   They have some HUGE pumpkins there.

Then we spend time looking at the different pumpkins (they have 60 varieties), squash and different other things they have for sale.

I got some little pumpkins, dried corn and other items to make a little centerpiece in our RV.  I love the squash that looks like a swan!  I always got my Fall decorations there.

A Few updates

Hi Everyone,

We made it home to Central Oregon on September 13th!!  YEAH!!!  We had originally only planned to be gone till the middle of July at the latest....but things didn't quite work out that way.   But, you know the rest of that story :-)

Our Granddaughter and her husband brought dinner over on our first night home and we played Pinochle!  It felt so good to be with them again!  We had been gone much longer than we had anticipated. 

We ran errands all day on Thursday the 14th and then met with some friends for dinner and a good visit!!  Then, Friday 15th, we headed for WA to take part in a 50th anniversary surprise for some friends on Saturday the 16th.

The rest of the time here has been spent with our Granddaughter (who is staying with us in our RV while we are here), visiting friends who came to visit us or invited us over to their homes to visit.

We have spent a lot of time trying to get our 5th wheel organized with the things we were able to get from the storage shed wh…

We are on our way HOME!!!!!!!

Hi Everyone!!!

Sorry for such a lapse in updating you on our adventure but the past few weeks have really been hectic.

But, to be perfectly honest, I didn't have much to tell you since my last post when I had said that we were getting ready to head over to the RV Factory to have the remaining things finished.

They ended up putting us up at a nice hotel from Friday the 25th till Tuesday morning, August 28th.

When, we arrived, they said that if we wanted to live in our RV at night, they could work on it during the day, it would be fine.  But, we just had to realize that there were some cosmetic things that they still needed to finish.

We agreed and we were there in their parking lot from August 28th through September 8th.   Every day, we would get up, get dressed and head over to the customer lounge where we would hang out while they pulled our Ambition in to work on things.   Sometimes, we'd be there all day.  Or we'd go take a drive and check out our surroundings.

When we…

Well........................tomorrow is the day!

At least that was what we were told on Friday when we arrived to take possession of our RV.

Not completely sure what the hang up was, this time, but something to the effect that they were still waiting on one piece of furniture to arrive and then it was ready.  Monday, we'll find out.

So, we are staying at a hotel near by, paid for by  company and hopefully, in the morning...we will get to see her in all her glory!

I'll update you after we have gotten to check it out and have had a chance to take some photos.

In retrospect, it's been a long, long, long 3 months on the road.  But, there were so many things we were able to take part in and places we got to visit and things we were able to do that we wouldn't have gotten to do, IF we had gotten our RV on time.  For this, I am so thankful!

Driving back to Yuma to see his Mom before she passed, and then back to OH again....put a TON of extra miles on our pick up, which we hadn't planned on....but life doesn't always…
