Laughlin, NV – My first try in a card room

Facebook Twitter I don’t believe in luck. Things either happen – or they don’t. I do understand the statistics of chance however. If I throw a quarter in the air, the probability is that 50% of the time, it will land and show heads. So why is it that I always pick heads and I usually […]

Laughlin, NV – Blowing in the wind

Facebook Twitter The last time we came to Laughlin, we parked at the very top of the hill overlooking the strip. I’d been told, in the winter, this place can get so packed in, like sardines, one beside the next but this was April, well past Snowbird season, and we were the only RV up […]

Lake Havasu, AZ

Facebook Twitter We’ve passed lake Havasu by a bunch of times, driving just north or just south of it, but never managing to fit it in. I had heard differing opinions about it, and I hadn’t felt in a hurry to get there, but I have a desire to see everywhere so it had to […]

Phoenix, AZ

Facebook Twitter It seems that Phoenix is turning into our way station in the southwest. We like to spend most of our time boondocking, but it’s nice to have a place where we can plugin, do laundry, shop and dine out. That is what Phoenix is to us, a place to recharge, and restock. We […]

Maricopa, AZ

Facebook Twitter On Monday, we drove up from Tucson to Maricopa, AZ, an outlying town in the Phoenix metropolitan area. We pulled into a very full parking lot at the Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino and found a spot in the overflow lot. After getting the trailer and dogs taken care of, we wandered into the casino where […]

Tombstone and Bisbee, AZ

Facebook Twitter On Sunday, my parents offered to look after our dogs while we drove down to Tombstone and Bisbee. We left early, forsaking breakfast to get on the road, but the temperature was already pretty hot. By the time we drove into Tombstone, we were both pretty hungry and the sun was blaring hot. […]

Tucson, AZ – Kartchner Caverns

Facebook Twitter On Saturday, we drove out to Kartchner Caverns State Park. I found out, belatedly, that it’s recommended to buy tickets in advance, but it worked to our benefit, since we got the last two tickets for the very next tour, instead of having to sit there waiting for our time. You pretty much can’t […]

Tucson

Facebook Twitter Tucson seems like a more blue collared version of Phoenix. We boondocked at the Casino Del Sol resort, just southwest of the city on the San Xavier Reservation. There were a ton of RVs there. We were told by one of our neighbours that the casino doesn’t have a limit on how long […]

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument

Facebook Twitter We awoke today to a beautiful sunny clear sky. I got up and took the dogs for a walk into the desert. The only sounds I could hear were the different calls of the birds and the shuffling of our feet. There was a slight breeze and the warmth of the sun was […]

Superbowl Sunday in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico

Facebook Twitter We’ve been to Mexico many times by air and cruise ship and day trips into border towns, but never driving through the countryside. You hear all sorts of stories about the danger down there from gangs and other criminals and it’s hard to distinguish between hype and healthy fears. A lot of RVers […]
