May 9, 2018 - Surgery Day

We got up as usual, with coffee in bed. But as we were sitting there we heard sirens. Don could see the road from his window and remarked that it looked like a fire truck. Then we saw another one. And then it sounded like it was coming into the trailer park, so we got up to look out. I Saw it from my window. The trailer across the street was on fire, with flames shooting high in the air. We had seen this once before, when we were in Albuquerque. It didn’t take long to engulf the whole trailer. And sure enough, this one was fully involved in...

May 8, 2018 - Unexpected News

We both slept well last night. As we were getting our things together, I took a phone call. I don’t usually answer unidentified calls, but did this time. It was the dermatologist office, calling to tell me that the biopsy was positive, and they were going to schedule surgery the next day. We had to drive back to Lake Havasu City since the surgeon would not be in Bullhead City or Laughlin until the 29th. Well that messed up our plans! We were looking forward to leaving soon since it was getting so hot here. We finished getting our things...

May 7, 2018 - Old Friends

Our plan for this day was to meet Sal and Sue, a couple we had met last year at Emerald Cove, for lunch. Frank and Jackie had asked us to call them around 11, so we did, and invited them to join us for lunch. They said they never eat that early. They had gone back to the casino and did not go to bed until 5:30 in the morning. Crazy! Anyway, we did meet Sal and Sue and had an enjoyable lunch with them. They were moving to Bullhead City, and were staying in their 5th wheel while their house was being built. Unfortunately, we were not able to...

May 6, 2018 - My Birthday

We had a complimentary 2-night stay at the Riverside Casino, so had mad reservations to spend my birthday and the next night there. Along with that we had free movie tickets, 2 free dinners in their steakhouse and $50 in free slot play. We also invited friends Frank and Jackie to join us. As it turned out, they had free rooms available at the Colorado Belle, a casino down the road from ours, so they stayed there. We checked in around 1:00 o’clock. It took another hour or so to get settled and to sign up for our players cards. Then we...

May 4, 2018 - Move to Ridgeview

Today was moving day again. This time we were going to a new acquisition of the CRA group, Ridgeview RV Resort. The advantage was that it was close to the casinos, and also close to Havasu City should the biopsy turn out to be positive. Plus, we had a complimentary 2-night stay at one of the casinos. The rest of the time I planned to loll around by the pool and be generally lazy for a bit. Unfortunately that was quashed at check in when I read the sign saying the pool was closed until further notice for renovation. Bummer! That meant that...

May 1, 2018 - The Dead Mountains

Don's brilliant idea today, since it was cooler than usual, was to hike to an old mine he had seen across from the Avi Casino in the Dead Mountains. I was agreeable, so we headed out. The access road was blocked off, so we were faced with a longer hike than expected. The mine looked like it was really far away. Nevertheless, with hiking sticks in hand, we started off. We could follow a road for a short way, just up to the telephone lines, then had to cut cross country. We chose a likely ravine to follow, which worked for a while, then went...

Apr 29, 2018 - Casino Row

After a breakfast of biscuits and gravy, we decided to drive to Laughlin to check out our next campground. We had heard it was quite a climb to get up to it (appropriately named Ridgeview!) so wanted to see what we were getting into before we had the trailer with us. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that, while it is a climb, it was a gradual one. It is also in Bullhead City, on the Arizona side of the river, and not where we were expecting it to be. It looks to be recently renovated with large sites, and again, not much in the way...

Apr 27, 2018 - Moving Day

Today was moving day, but as we only had around 75 miles to go we didn't get too excited about a timely departure. On the other hand, as we have pared down our stuff and gotten more proficient about packing, we got away a bit earlier than our usual 10 o'clock start time. Yay! After saying goodbye to our new friends, Mike and Caron, we were on our way to Fort Mohave, ArRizona. After a quick stop by the Walmart on our way out of town to pick up prescription refills, we had a leisurely drive to our next campground, Riverside Adventures, in...

Apr 16, 2018 - Our stay in Bullhead City, AZ

Saturday 4/14/2018 Today we left Prescott Arizona and drove approx 187 miles to Bull Head city, Arizona to the Silverview RV resort located on a hill overlooking the Colorado River across from Laughlin, Nevada Just a short ride to many Casino’s located along the river. A beautiful board walk along the river connects to all the Casino’s so you may enjoy a nice walk along the river and then duck into one of several Casino’s for a cool beverage along the way. We need to take the Motor Home in for an Oil Change and some work on the Muffler...

Feb 16, 2018 - Silver View RV Resort

Well after a most enjoyable month at FOY it was time to move on down the road. We decided to try here as we had never stayed here in Bullhead city before and we are glad we did. The park is perched on a hill over looking Laughlin and the river. You can feel the difference in the air with the water being close. We seem to have left most of the blowing sand/dust behind us. Sure the good old CBC for Olympic coverage, Americans don't get it too much. Did you see a Russian curler got caught for doping, a curler come on what's with that. Kind of...

Apr 11, 2017 - Some Days Nothing Goes Right

We are actually in Fort Mohave, kind of a suburb of Bullhead City, and still near the Colorado River. It was not our first choice (that would have been Needles) but this will do. We got packed, drove 78 miles and got unpacked again in pretty good time. But after working to get the Dish satellite set up with no success and no luck with technical support over the telephone, we called it a day. So this morning we had an appointment at the Chevy dealerdhip to look at the truck. The power steering unit had gone from bad to worse since we did not...

Dec 10, 2016 - From Missouri to Paradise NOT!

Before we left the Grand Canyon, I was so excited that I finally found the perfect place to spend the winter and made our reservations in the middle of Bullhead City Arizona. It was pricey but I thought that it’d be worth spending the $423 a month plus Elec to stay at a large (250 sites) rv park with all the amenities (full hookups, great view, Wi-Fi, cable TV, shower suites, pool, gym, laundry, and a deli), as well as shopping and things to do close by (some within walking distance). While we were in Michigan, we were unsure as to when the...
