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.

Arrival Nellis AFB-Las Vegas

2 January 2016

After 1 night at March Air Field, we decided to depart for Nellis AFB in Las Vegas today instead of 5 January.
We are fortunate to have gotten a very nice spot #78 in spite of arriving early. We were unable to get in Circle 1 where most of our friends are located, but still close to them in Circle 4.

Clouds Look Like Airplane

Almost Missed this one


On Monday we met our friends Chuck and Rose Mary who live here for lunch at Bagel Cafe. We were so engrossed in conversation that I forgot to take a photo so have posted one from 2014 when we having lunch at Mimi"s.We will have several other opportunities while we are here until the 5 March.



On Tuesday, the rain started and predicted for several days. We will get a delivery of propane today as well. It is cold with temps in 50's during day and 30's at night. Electric blanket sure come in handy.

Wednesday we had our medical checkups at the clinic  Our checkups went well and we had the same PA as last year. She remembered us and spent almost an hour with each of us. Will go back next week for mammogram and bone density scan. We are so fortunate to be able to use the clinic on base as we feel more attention and care is given to us. Sure others feel the same way.

Our dinner get together at Memphis Barbeque was lots of fun. 10 of us were able to attend and the conversation was enjoyable and humorous at times. It is so nice to be able to get together year after year. One of the couples unfortunately on their way here, totalled their Motorhome and tow vehicle due to blowout on a front tire. The good news is that they were close to family near Ft Worth when it happened and they were not seriously injured. Another couple is celebrating their 50th Anniversary touring Hawaii.




Below is a photo of one of the big rigs in park. He is here every year for about 6 months. Sure when driving down the highway there are lots of ooh's and aah's from passing motorists.



Also on the way to the clinic, got an early morning photo of snow on mountains after the rain.
