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:)

Life is a Highway

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long

No matter who sings it this might have to be the tag line for Driving Miss Donna. This time the highway took us to an old favorite - Laughlin, and a relatively new favorite campground, Big Bend of The Colorado Recreation Area. 

No surprise that the campground is right on the river!  The real treat is the campground itself. Being on the quieter edge of Laughlin, away from developments, makes this location so quiet. Add to that attraction the huge sites, full services, and easy access to the area and its tourist activities ( such as bars, diners and casinos) and you have a winner. 


We have done nothing here. Literally. Except for relax, walk the river walk, have some cold beverages and go for a few drives. One of which included an afternoon in Las Vegas and a stop at Freemont Street. And Costco.
When in Laughlin our evenings are typically spent with a river walk and a few dollars on the machines. I've had good luck this time around and have supplemented Don's Bonus Poker with my Lobster Mania skill. We're not sure yet where the highway will lead tomorrow when we leave, but I will let you know.
