Well for anyone who travels alot you will understand no blog updates = cruddy internet! Let's see how I do at recapping the trip so far. On Friday we spent the night in Great Falls. The weather had improved immensely by then, and although the furncae ran a lot it was toasty. Another full day on Saturday found us at Cabelas in Salt Lake City. They have water and a sanitary dump for RV's, as well as a restaurant. Great stuff.
Sunday we arrived at the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada. The park is about 30 miles north of Vegas. I haven't downloaded the photos yet, but wow that park is amazing for scenery. We spent 2 nights, and met the nicest couple from Missoula Montana. Gerry and Peggy spent the evening at our fire and we shared dessert. Yummy.
Monday we headed into Vegas, and are staying in Sam's Town. Our old friends Pat and Walter Parker are staying down south this winter. We met them when we lived in St Paul, over 17 years ago.
Last night we went to Freemont Street for a fabulous seafood buffet and the light show of American Pie.
Today we are just hanging out. We are having an RV wash service clean all the Alberta scrunge off the trailer, get some groceries, and maybe check out some sights.
My next post should be form Laughlin - so see you there!
PS - Has anyone skyped? We are hooked up and saw Blake and Em yesterday. How sweet!
Our Travel Blog

- Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Well, we are excited that our spring holiday is days away. Today Don and I will start packing the trailer for our 3 week excursuion. Here is a map of where we THINK we may visit, but you know how plans can change. No reservations are made, so we can see where the adventure and weather takes us!
Lots of miles but that's the way we like it.
As for today we are also babysitting Emerson and Blake overnight, just because. I wanted to have Em because she has not had a sleepover with us yet. So I will let you know how it goes...
