Where are we today

         Just more great weather but getting a bit windy as usual in this area.Walked around the park for a couple miles then headed across the River to Laughlin.
         About 10 very huge casinos there that we had checked out about 9 years ago. Now back then they had some amazing deals, free camping, free meals (buffets etc..) Free shows (and we did see a few), free souvenirs and so on. Guess we got lucky back then. No more free anything, not even free slot play, but they are very busy so why give away free stuff?
       So no casinos for us this time when we have free camping across the river. We are enjoying the area and great weather. Wind is picking up, 15 mph winds from the north, but we are facing south so not too bad other than the intense sun, but our awning and sunshade sure helps.

camped back here then, was fun and free
      Back then we had checked all these Casinos, played a bit and enjoyed them, but no need to go back again, other than to take a few pics. If we wanted to gamble and spend some money a good place, but we are not gamblers.
     Home by 10 am and whipped up an early lunch. Bacon and eggs done on the grill mat on our Weber Q. A craving we both had and enjoyed.
one yoke broke so had to do another
gotta have a yokey egg
          Early lunch because we are meeting good friends here for the Ice Cream social at 1 pm. Oscar, Judy, their daughter Lori and SIL Roland. We met almost 10 years ago from Dryden Ontario. They talked us into a banana split, $3.75 and it was HUGE, we split it and barely finished it.  But sure was wonderful and refreshing on this hot day, 87F today.

       After the social they came back to our site for a very enjoyable social time (sorry no pics we were having too much fun). Nice to catch up with them and chat, just the 6 of us.
        They headed out about 4 pm and we enjoyed our e-readers for a bit, fired up our Weber Q to grill a tasty pork loin roast, and grilled some asparagus to add to our salad.
another tasty meal and more leftovers
that we enjoy
        A very relaxing Sunday, and enjoying time with good friends. It does not get much better.
        Thanks for stopping in and hope you had a great Sunday as well.

Where have we been this Winter


  1. Enjoy thinking back on our few times in Laughlin to watch the senior league baseball games. Our neighbor was a player/coach. But never found that much in the area to attract us back, thanks for sharing your experiences - we'll need to reconsider. There is more than slot machines ...

    1. We don't need much to do, as we will spend a lot of our winter in the desert. There is a not a lot to do here but we enjoy moving around.

  2. We didn't find too many good deals when we were in Laughlin either. We much preferred the casinos and their offerings in Pahrump. At least the weather was nice and you had a chance to enjoy just being there.

    1. We did enjoy the deals in Pahrump but not so much here anymore. If you spend money and earn points you do get some discounts, but you have to spend a lot of money.

  3. Seems like casinos just have to open their doors to entice folks to come in now.

  4. Replies
    1. They used to have good deals to entice people to gamble, not so much anymore.

  5. We really enjoyed our visit with you in the afternoon. Great to learn about your travels and advice on where to go and what to do. Look forward to seeing you Wednesday when we come back into the park?

    1. It was fun catching up with you guys.
      And yes we see you Wednesday, happy hour your place, in the shade.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
