Nov 18, 2016 - 3 days in Bullhead City

We checked into Fiesta RV Park in Bullhead City just across the Colorado River from Laughlin, Nevada. The staff at the park were very helpful in advising us on local repair companies to call to check out the damage from the power surge. RV & Trailer Repair, the first one we called apologized for not being able to come out right away but gave us advice on how to keep the battery charged so we could have light in the trailer. He arrived promptly the next morning, checked everything out, replaced the power converter, sent John to buy a $1.50...

Mar 19, 2016 - Bullhead City, Arizona

Our first day out of Bosque del Apache was not a very strenuous one – we only went as far as Truth or Consequences (T or C), New Mexico, a trip of about one hour duration. One of the places we had planned on visiting while we were at Bosque was SpacePort America. Since Jon has had a long-time interest in space, we didn’t want to pass up this opportunity. It is the first and currently the only “purpose built commercial spaceport” in the world. There are several in the planning or approval stage, but none have broken ground. Although there...

Mar 10, 2016 - Silver View RV Resort (3/6/16)

We have not been to Bullhead City before. It is right across the Colorado River from Laughlin, NV. We haven't been there before, either. We are staying at Silver View which sits on top of a hill and looks out over the river to Laughlin. It is quite a view from up here. As we were getting set-up and settled, our neighbors stopped by. Donna and Mike are from British Columbia, Canada. They are a very nice couple who are rather new to the full time RV life. They had friends meeting them there for a few days. We stayed for only one night and...

Apr 11, 2015 - Bullhead City, Arizona

We are staying right now just outside of Bullhead City on the Colorado river. A lovely campground which is part of Lake Meade NRA, very quiet, secluded and all around us are blooming Oleander trees. The weather is perfect with temperatures constant around 28C. We celebrated Easter with our cousins and worshipped at the United Reformed Church. What a contrast with Good Friday when we were at a little bible church in the mountains. There a small congregation of about 20, a pastor who preached a fitting simple message but alsi accompanied the...

Escaping Freeseland

Nov 13, 2014 - Bullhead City, AZ

Bullhead City, AZ The day started out cooler than the previous two days. We opted to follow the old Route 66 to Kingman. The major difference from going on I-40 is the slower pace on Route 66 and close up view of the small run down towns along the way. It reminded us of the Cars movie. At noon we set up camp at the Davis Camp Park located on the Colorado River just below Davis Dam. Not very many people here and we enjoyed soaking in the 80 degree sunshine before doing some chores. On the way out we out of the RV park we spotted a couple of...

Apr 6, 2014 - Bullhead City,Az.

Wind almost everyday. Sunny though. Went across the river to Laughlin. Visited some of the casinos and walked their riverwalk. No shops or anything, just a sidewalk along side of the Colorado. Beautiful scenery from our viewpoint makes it easy to stay put.

Mar 15, 2014 - Mini-Vegas

We debated about heading to Las Vegas, but I am not really a gambler. Bob was only lukewarm about the idea. We decided to start heading West again. We spent a week in BullHead City, AZ. The campground had many snowbirds and full time residents. They also had some quilters that met once a week. It sounded like a comfortable place. Bullhead City is about 75 miles south of Las Vegas on the Colorado river. The country surrounding the area is very...very...bleak. I enjoy the desert, but this was very barren. It sits on a bend of the Colorado...

Gulliver's Travels

Mar 9, 2014 - Anniversary

It has been another long stretch since my last entry so I will try to catch up. We decided to go down memory lane once again. We decided to do the River Dinner Cruise again. We both ordered the Prime Rib dinner and it was delicious. We could have easily shard just one of the meals. The owner of the boat remembered Paul from when Paul organized enough people to take the cruise 3 years ago for my birthday. He again sat us at the captain's table in honor of our anniversary. We visited with the other passengers and had a wonderful evening after...

Feb 26, 2014 - Updated activity

Well it has been over a month since I last updated this journal so I have a lot to talk about. It is amazing how busy you get and don't how much time has passed. We managed to get through the super bowl without falling asleep. We were with Brandon, Amanda and the boys at their home. I have to say the game itself was quite boring, halftime was okay but the company was fantastic. We ended up playing some UNO with the boys and then some marbles and euchre with Brandon and Amanda. Then we got a real treat when Phil and Cindy came to visit. It...

Feb 21, 2014 - Bullhead City

Hi All We spent the last 4 days in Bullhead City, AZ. We were just across the Colorado River from Nevada - could put one foot in AZ and one in NV -- being in 2 places at the same time. Plus -- in 2 time zones at the same time. And speaking of time zones -- we have finally made it back to Pacific Standard time - no more confusing me when I want to make phone calls! Victor's high school buddy, Marty, spends winters in Bullhead so we had a chance to visit with him and his wife Mardi Ann. Victor's dad gave Marty (the son he always wanted!!...

Feb 20, 2014 - Back in Bullhead

We stopped in Bullhead City for a couple of days. Seemed so funny to be there without seeing my Aunt Kaki who was always the only reason we stopped there. We stayed at the Riverside Casino's RV Park, and while there took advantage of their casino (lost) and their movie theatre to see "American Hustle" (Win!) On Friday we drove down to the Avi Casino to have breakfast with one of Kaki's good friends Teri. We have had several breakfasts there when we would visit Kaki as she would always want us to go play Bingo with her, and many times we...

Jan 11, 2014 - geo-cache

Jan.10-Went with our new friends geo-caching, looking for the caches. That's their hobby & it is rather interesting. As they have a jeep we went out on a back road towards Oatman. found 3 caches, but one had been muggled (removed).Of course I managed to fall-the hill side was steep & rocky. No damage other than a few scrapes & cactus prickles and perhaps my pride (which resides in my backside!).Have decided a lot of grocery items are about the same price as Drumheller. Of course the beer & liquor is a lot cheaper. Went to Laughlin Outlet...
