I Can See for Miles and Miles

Las Vegas, NV   High 88  Low 63

After saying goodbye to Boise and family, all we have done is head south. We stayed in McDermitt, NV, Winnemucca, NV, Hawthorne, NV, Beaty, NV and are finally in Las Vegas for a few nights.

road3Those of you who have driven Highway 95 through Nevada will relate to the title of this post. For me, this drive was a wonderful relief from all the trees. Don’t get me wrong, I do not want to live out here in the middle of nowhere. But I love being able to see for many miles in all directions.

georgeThe only break we took from our drive was in Hawthorne. Our good friends, George and Sharon live in Walker Lake which is only a few miles from Hawthorne. We had plans to to take them out to dinner, but we found out that Sharon was in Nashville having a good time with her sisters. That meant we got to take George out to dinner and had a great visit with him.

Hopefully I’ll have a blog or two to post from Las Vegas but after leaving Las Vegas we will take two days to return to our home park in Apache Junction. I know I’ve overwhelmed you with blog posts while we traveled but you’ll be getting a break because we will be doing the normal routines of life. If anything fun or exciting happens, I will post a blog; but I’m kind of looking forward to not being on the go so much.

  1. Sounds like a wonderful trip.
    I post everyday, because for us everyday we live this lifestyle is exciting, for us. Even more so when we get on the road in 5 more days.
    Keep us posted though.

  7. I always enjoy reading your blog, long ones as well as short ones, photos or no photos, newsy or just the everyday stuff of life. I get tired of blogging every day, but if I skip many days then it's so much harder to get back and I feel like just giving it up. So even if it's only a few sentences we enjoy hearing from you.

    This is an exceptional blog community, as so many of us really care about each other. I've gone 4 or 5 days without posting and I get an email or two asking if I'm ok. To me that is one of the priceless things about this group of readers and bloggers.

  8. Have loved your fun posts. Yes, I know exactly what you're talking about that you can see forever. It's especially noticeable at night when you see the lights of the town from miles and miles away.

  10. I hope you have a buck or two left over from Vegas to get you on down the road. I'm not a gambler, but those Vegas buffets seem to suck money out of my wallet faster than a one armed bandit! :c)

  11. A good read. Las Vegas in Nevada is supposed to be great at night. It'd be great to see. A friend said what a good place it is to visit.

  13. I have traveled that road many times. I always stopped at the McD's at Walker Lake.
    I forgot how cute those doggies of yours are at the top of the blog.

  15. We are not overwhelmed by your blogging, in fact we want more :-)

    Curious as to why you chose those places in NV. We are planning a trip on the same highway and are looking for tips.

    1. Turns out we are looking at going up 93 from LV to Twin Falls ID and not on 95, sorry for any confusion. Based on distance alone we were looking at Crystal Springs then Ely then Wells. Thoughts???

  16. I've always thought that big sky country should be someplace flat with no trees instead of Montana. Just look at all that sky.
