Time to hit the road?

I think not. We decided to stay a few more days so we drove across the street to Riverside RV Park and payed five dollars to use their rv dump and fill our fresh water tank.

I have been using the casino restroom during the day to help not fill our waste tank as fast.

Katherine's Landing is located on the Arizona side of the Colorado river seven miles from Laughlin just up lake from Davis Dam. It is part of the Lake Mead National Recreational Area.

Nice campground with no hookups for $10 or $5 for Senior Pass holders. The Senior Pass holders also do not owe the day use charge.

If you enlarge this photo you can see our red Dodge just to the right of the building in the center. We used their laundry and I have taken two showers in their pay shower house. This let us stay longer without dumping.

They have a free dump and water refill but it would cost more than the $5 in diesel I paid across the street to dump.

All this makes staying at Riverside Casino very easy.

Still hanging out in Laughlin

Sunday night finds us still hanging out in Laughlin at Riverside Casino. Probably head out in a day or two.

Tomorrow is wash day, just goes to show that life still happens when you are having fun.

In case you haven't heard, "the weather here is great."

What an ass!

Oatman, Arizona was on the original Route 66 but the road changed in 1953 and left the town to die.

The town in now only viable because of the tourists interested in the Mother Road as Route 66 has become known.

This is old Route 66 through town,

the main drag is about 1/4 mile long, actually the only street through town.

as you can see the road is very narrow. I am taking this from the opposite sidewalk.

This guy "works" in the street so it makes a very narrow street, one usable lane.

By far the most notable building in Oatman is the Oatman Hotel circa 1902.

Clark Gable and Carole Lombard honeymooned here in 1939. Don't know who they are: why are you up this late on a school night?

Now the burros are the main attraction as they roam the streets. It was getting late and they had left town where tourists feed them carrots (readily available in any shop in town) and heading back to the hills for the night.

They are descendants of the burros left behind from the miners of the 1915 gold rush.

This one ass was looking for a carrot. I laughed so hard I cried.

Have I mentioned lately how great the weather is?

Secret Meeting

I can't proof it but I think the Laughlin casino CFOs has a meeting last night to discuss their resent losses and conspired against me and finally recovered 25% of their money from me.

While they were having their way with me, they took their eyes off Judy and she slipped away a winner.

No Mercy

I continue to show "no mercy" toward the Laughlin casinos. If you own their stock, I think I would unload it quickly. ROFLMAO

We checked out the other casinos that offer free rv parking and while Riverside is the most convenient, it is by far the most crowded. Tropicana has the best with extra wide spots to accommodate slides on both sides and they have a dump station for those that register for free rv parking. All require proof of ownership and insurance.

We had a gourmet meal for lunch, two polish dogs combos from Sam's Club.

To my b-i-l Steve, eat your heart out sucker.

99 cent breakfast

We had breakfast at Avi Casino where their breakfast of two eggs, hash browns, ham, and toast costs an outrageous price of $.99.

After that we left with $25 of their money. Did our usual Wal-Mart shopping, hit two more casinos and again escaped with their money. At this rate we may close all the Laughlin casinos down. Yea, right!

Highs in the 70's and about 55 tonight. I need help, this life is hard work.

Laughlin, Nv.

Yesterday we drove about 150 miles and parked for the night in Mojave, California. Sierra Trails RV Park is another great Passport America member park that has long drive thru sites so we didn't have to unhook. The price was $13.25 tax included.

I grilled hamburger steaks and Judy nuked a couple of potatoes. First grilled food in over two months.

A bit longer drive at 240 miles but we are safely snuggled into the Riverside Casino parking lot that is designated for free rv parking. After unhooking we learned we had to move to another spot about 50 feet away. No big deal, just hookup and move.

Paved parking lot with just dry camping and no hookups but you can't beat the price. We will probably be here for at least five or six days.

Again I will just say, "Life is good".

Last Night

Seems strange to be leaving here after two months. It really has been a nice place to call home but it is time to "get the hell outa Dodge".

1 Week

One more week here in Kingsburg, California. It will seem strange to be traveling again after being planted here for two months.

I have been doing several minor maintenance jobs including but not limited to:
Changing the oil in the generator
Checking water in the Trojan batteries
Cleaning the battery terminals
Repairing the bent arms on one of the stabilizer jacks
Washing the bugs off the front of the camper

I have been walking for exercise in the field behind the rv park and was stopped by the owner of the property and invited to glean anything I want from his garden.

Mostly regular tomatoes, roma tomatoes, bell peppers (green, red and orange), several variates of hot peppers and egg plant. Needless to say, tomatoes are being eaten at every meal.

Fresh garden vegetables are the best.

2 Weeks

If things work out we should be pulling out of here in two weeks. We will be heading for the Arizona/Nevada line. Should take about two driving days as it is about 400 miles.

We will spend at least one night getting there but that is always subject to change.
