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 hello again!

Sorry about the lengthy delay in blogging, but wi fi has not been that strong.  I've manageed a few facebook updates, but photos etc are difficult.

So here we are it's Wednesday a whole week since I wrote!  We had a great visit with Walter and Pat.  They have a lovely new trailer that is very nice to live in.  Great rear kitchen and a king size bed in the bedroom!  We did get to Freemont Street and the seafood buffet, so that was nice.  Wednesday we spent driving around shopping, picking up a few odds and ends.  Pat and Walter had friends flying in from Saskatoon on Wednesday afternoon, and once they arrived Pat cooked a great supper and we visited.

We left Las Vegas on Thursday, but not bright and early by any means.  We had the breakfast buffet at Sam's Town for the second day.  The only time I like lying about my age, BUT how come they believed I was 50??

We pulled into Laughlin aroung 12:30 pm and decided to stay at Davis Camp on the river.  You can see why from the photo:)

















We set up camp quickly then headed to the Bullhead City Walmart to visit with my brotherWarren and his wife Cherie.  They were headed home to Alberta from the winter in Needles CA.  We had an early supper at a mexican restaurant and headed back to our site.
We knew Don's high school freind Ivan was in the area as we read his blog, and sure enough on Friday as we were returing to our site and Don and I are discussing what type of trailer Ivan pulls, there he was on the road.  He joined us for a few drinks at happy hour, then we headed to the casinos for appetizers and more drinks.
On Saturday we did a bit of a road trip and toured the area, although we have been in Laughlin many times.  Ivan joined us for supper on Saturday night, and Don and him spent Sunday driving around and touring.  I HAD to do some homework on my final exam, and was glad Don had someone to visit.  Supperagain at our site, then we said our good byes to Ivan, as we all planned on leaving the next day.
Not like Don and I, but we actually just left Laughin this morning, a week later.  We were cozy in our site and in no hurry to go anywhere.  We visited the Laughlin casinos a couple of times, drove to some new explore areas, and generally did a lot of nothing.  The internet conncetions have been sad, so I haven't been skyping like I expected to:(
We are now camped at Lake Havasu State Park, another site on the water.  I will post some photos later, as it appears we actually have strong internet connections.
Happy travels to all!
