Moving Day: Barstow, CA To Quartzsite, AZ

We were originally going to take a different route into Arizona today but decided to go a different route.  Rather than going interstate we took state roads…which turned out to be a pretty relaxing drive. While Michael was packing up outside a gentleman from across the way (who’d pulled in yesterday) came over to chat.  He’s … Continue reading »

Tuesday, October 11th I made it to 7:00 am this morning!  Michael followed about an hour and 15 minutes later….lazy thing!  However, when he got up he made breakfast….oatmeal and toast to start the day!

A quiet morning with a nice breakfast (sausage, eggs and toast) while watching the news and surfing the internet.  While doing a little … Continue reading »

Travel Day: Las Vegas, NV To Barstow, CA

Our last couple of days  at Nellis Air Force Base were nice and quiet.  We did a lot of relaxing, a few chores and made a quick visit to the commissary. One of the chores was replacing the circuit board for our RVLock, which was Michael’s task, of course.  The lock stopped working using the … Continue reading »

Pizza! …And the Neon Sign Boneyard

Ahhhhh…..we had a blissfully quiet and relaxing morning and early afternoon.  We did nothing!  We relaxed in our recliners and watched several of the MANY shows clogging up our DVR.  It was heaven! We had tickets for the 8:00 pm Neon Sign Museum Tour so we had to pull ourselves together and get moving, unfortunately. … Continue reading »
