Our blog is to keep family and friends informed of our motorhome journeys.
We have dreamed of this for many years and finally our dream has come true.
We are looking forward to many happy miles ahead.

Leaving Seal Beach Arriving Las Vegas

30 January 2013

After a month at Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach Seebreeze RV park,
we are heading to Nellis AFB in Las Vegas until the 15 March.

We said goodby to the Coyotes, Herons, Egrets and Ground Squirrels. Fortunately no snakes. This was a very nice campground convenient to attractions, shopping and beaches. Couldn't get picture of squirrels.
They are so cute.
Coyote..saw 4 of them

Blue Heron

Traveling IH 15 for the next 5 hours and not a very scenic drive, we arrived at campground on Nellis known as Desert Eagle around 3:00PM.
This is a very nice campground and very well run. All sites are concrete and we are on site 86 with full hookups. Nice dog park and walking area and beautiful view of mountains. Lots of planes and home to the Thunderbirds. Missed a one time photo op of the Thunderbirds in formation as they were landing. Just not quick on the trigger. Guess that is why I don't own a gun.
Not the Picture I wanted

Thunderbird Tribute Main Gate

Nellis is the largest fighter base in the world with more than 75% live munitions dropped during training exercises in the Nevada Test and Training range. This is also home to the Red Flag air to air combat training involving the USA and allied Air Forces. The base was opened in 1941 and has a population of around 3,000. We are entertained with the flights and noise, but not a bother..just respect for the pilots and training.

Tomorrow we are going to visit Morman Fort Las Vegas.
