Sequim, WA – Pokemon makes friends and enemies

Sequim, pronounced Skwim, is a little town along the the upper coast of the Olympic Peninsula. Known as the “Lavender Capital of North America”, it’s a sleepy little town full of Chinese restaurants and little craft galleries. We were in town to see what it offered, but more so, to walk around and catch some creatures for […]

Bellingham, WA – Silver Reef Casino

We finally got back on the road! I gave Harold a day off after returning from Hungary, and we left Sunday afternoon. The Silver Reef Casino in Bellingham has been home the last few days, stocking up on groceries, visiting breweries, catching Pokemon, and getting used to the new motorhome. It was a very short drive […]

Argolis, Greece – Corinth, Epidaurus, Nafplion, and Mycenae

The Argolis peninsula separates the Saronic and Argolic Gulfs. It was the seat of power of the Mycenaean empire that ruled Greece from 1600 to 1100 BC. A tour of the region takes us to some of the most important archaeological sites of Greece, including tholos tombs, citadels and ancient theatres. If you’ve read much of my blog, you’ll […]

Salt Lake City – a different kind of pilgrimage

The town of Wendover is split right down the center. The casino side is in Nevada, the seedier side is in Utah. We’re about a block from Nevada here. Harold just pointed out to me that we’re now in mountain time, but a block up the road it’s Pacific time. So which 10am did the […]

Wendover, NV – Triple A We have a problem

We’re halfway between Elko, NV and Salt Lake City, UT. It’s a gorgeous afternoon, we’re sailing along, still gliding on the high of the previous week. Harold looks into his rear view mirror and says, very casually, “We may have a problem back there.” “What kinda problem? What’s going on?” I question him. He’s so […]

Laughlin, NV – My first try in a card room

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 win? Would […]

Laughlin, NV – Blowing in the wind

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 there. We […]

Maricopa, AZ

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 we both […]

Tucson

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 people can […]

Yuma – the official sunniest place on Earth

All the way down from Quartzsite, the view is desert scrub, rocks, and cacti. Then you hit Yuma, and it’s field after field of green produce, citrus and date trees. The biggest cauliflower, and the biggest cabbage, I’ve ever seen, about as big as an adult head. Lemons, oranges, tangelos, grapefruit grow on street corners […]
