Travel Day: Hunstville, UT To West Haven, UT

Wednesday, September 14th. With less than 20 miles to travel to today’s destination we didn’t pull out of Anderson Cove until about 10:15 am.  As usual most of our leave day chores were already done so we just had a few odds and ends left to complete.   We went next door and said our ‘Goodbyes’ … Continue reading »

Last Days At Anderson Cove

Our last weekend at Anderson Cove proved to be fairly busy.  The person that does the scheduling for the store must not have thought that Friday evening would be very busy so just one person was scheduled to work in the store.  Since school is back in session everyone waited until after school/work to arrive … Continue reading »

Antelope Island: Horseback, Bison, Antelope and the Great Salt Lake

**Just a reminder….if you click on the pictures they will be enlarged and easier to view. We’d been told that Labor Day weekend was going to be the worst weekend of all the holiday weekends.  However, we’d been told that before every weekend so we weren’t too worried.  Good thing we weren’t as we both … Continue reading »

Best Thing Since Sliced Bread!

With the slow down of campers at the park we’ve been freed up to do some more chores around the house.  One such chore for Michael was to borrow Zack’s pressure washer and clean the roof.  It really takes a beating from the sun, trees dropping their leaves and birds leaving their droppings behind. He … Continue reading »

Experiments, New Things & a Fun Day

I’ve still been experimenting with my Instant Pot.  Hard-boiled eggs are a favorite.  Six minutes on high pressure results in perfect eggs with no green around the yolk! One night I got brave and made two dishes.  The first was a whole rotisserie-like chicken and then while that ‘sat’ and rested I made some macaroni … Continue reading »

Long Post Ahead!

Wow!  I’ve really fallen behind in my blogging! We are still getting 40 hours each at the campground but that will be reduced, most likely, right after Labor Day.  Reservations won’t be taken after September 4th so things will really quiet down then.  Although we can already see a HUGE difference as school starts the … Continue reading »

Five Acres of Shopping, Fish, Rain and a Rainbow

We’d heard about this store on the north side of Ogden that carries pretty much anything you might need from military surplus items to kitchen gadgets, camping supplies, toys, food items, clothing, cowboy boots, tools and all kinds of other stuff in between. The billboards for Smith and Edwards boast that they carry 5 acres … Continue reading »

DUP Museum, Brixton’s and Projects

This last weeks ‘day off’ excursion was to the Daughter’s of the Utah Pioneers Museum in Ogden.  The building was commissioned by Brigham Young in 1877 as the only known Relief Society for the LDS Church. The building is jam-packed with artifacts of the early pioneers.  Lots of pictures of the original pioneers adorn the walls. … Continue reading »

Pioneer Day, The End is Near and Trip Planning

This past weekend was supposed to be quite busy due to it being a state holiday here in Utah.  Pioneer Day (July 24th) commemorates when Brigham Young and the first Mormon pioneers settled in the area.  It was busy….but about the same as the 4th of July weekend.  Everyone seemed to have a much better … Continue reading »

Instant Pot & A Real Rodeo

Have you heard of the Instant Pot?  I saw some friends on Facebook post about it a while back and did some research and thought it sounded like it would be a nice piece of equipment to add to my kitchen but they’re pretty pricey so I didn’t get one right away. An Instant Pot … Continue reading »
