Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who only dream at night. – Edgar Allan Poe

This is the end

Another day of riving took us up the Chehalis, Wa Walmart, where we encountered the cold again, then the next day we drove to Tulalip, Wa. At this point we could have just continued home, but we wanted to check out the casino and do some shopping before heading back across the border. The casino […]

Stalking the band

Driving from Yreka, CA to the Seven Feathers Casino, in Canyonville, OR, we were passed by an interesting looking bus. By the time I realized that I wanted to know what it was and get a picture of it, it was quite far ahead of us. Due to the traffic, it became a real problem […]

Jefferson – the 51st state?

It was down in Paso Robles that we’d first heard of a secession plan to take the northern part of California and the southern part of Oregon and make it into a 51st state named Jefferson. Funny that we’d just now heard of it, since the idea had been hatched way back in 1941. It […]

Down and out in Susanville

This part of the trip is where things became more of a chore and less about fun. Harold had only been able to take two weeks of vacation and we’d wanted to be away a month. Add to that, my best client had a big emergency that couldn’t wait until I returned. So the plan […]

Baldini’s, a cure for the family curse

I figured after a night like we’d just had, we’d never get back to sleep. The plan had been to leave at dawn but we slept in a couple of hours after the sun rose. My parents of course, were ready to leave about the same time we woke up. We had a pretty uneventful […]

Tonopah, NV: I have a gun! Stay away!

There is this illusion you have about safety in numbers that gets stripped away instantly, when you have some crazy drunk guy running around your trailer, banging and smashing on it, demanding to be let in, in the middle of the night, in the middle of nowhere. I remember reading a story in a travel […]

Las Vegas always wins

We spent the next four days getting to know the real Las Vegas better. My parents met their friends, J&L, on a cruise many years ago and spend time with them every time they come through town. Four years ago, when we came to town to be married, we met them for the first time […]

Las Vegas – Miracle In The Desert

We were told we couldn’t check-in to the Main Street RV park until after 2pm, (don’t fall for that, just pull-in to the RV lot and wait to check-in at 2) so we spent the morning in Primm doing laundry at the Truck Stop and working. We didn’t have our stabilizers down and there were […]

Blew the budget on wine, so we’re off to Nevada!

Only allowed to take 4 bottles of wine back into Canada, we already had 5 really good, more expensive bottles. We were feeling like we couldn’t trust ourselves to only taste, and not buy, and we like to keep our better wines for times we can share them with people who will appreciate them as […]

Over the hills and through the vineyards

It was so hard to pull ourselves away from the coast, but we had the vineyards of Paso Robles beckoning to us. The plan was to spend 2 days cruising the tasting rooms, and there are three vineyards in the area that allow free overnight parking to Harvest Hosts members. A general rule of the […]
