We Made It

Our first stopping spot for the season, Pahrump, NV.  We decided to stay at the Escapee’s Pair of Dice RV park on the outskirts of town.  We thought there would be some ATVing spots around here but that doesn’t seem to be the case.  But, it was 62 degrees and sunny this afternoon—we are happy!

Just as we were coming out of Las Vegas our phone rang, it was Larry—of the Larry and Geri fame—they are the previous owners of a wonderful RV park in Custer, SD, just up the road from Mike and Pat’s place.  Larry and Geri now travel full time in a toy hauler with lots of toys—ATV’s and dirt bikes.  They were still in Pahrump awaiting some generator repairs—they came over for a visit that was cut short by a call from the generator repair facility saying they were good to go.  Larry and Geri along with their Canadian friends pulled out this afternoon heading over into California to do some ATVing—we will catch up with them in a week or so when our time is done here. 

We plan on doing some sightseeing—we are not far from Death Valley National Park, some hot springs at Tecopa, CA, etc.  There is a winery here Ellie—we might just have to do a tasting.  The park has some activities planned for tomorrow night but I doubt we partake—we are not New Year’s Eve partying kind of folks.

Geri said while they were here, “we are so close to Vegas—we could just go over there for New Year’s”  I think the statement was made in jest but I said, “nope, been there, done that, NOT doing it again.”  When Emmi was a puppy 4 years ago, we spent New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas—way, way too many people for us!!

I didn’t take a single photo today—I’ll do better tomorrow.

  1. I agree, to many people. Oh, by the way my watering system is working again, so no big rush. I would like Mr Mike to look at it when he is in the area, but no hurry. Course we are anxious to see you... Greg is leaving on the 6th ...So the lot is open,,for grabs.. Have fun..!!

  2. Highly recommend the tour of Scottie's Castle if you get into Death Valley. Much better than the Vegas strip, in my humble opinion.:-)

  3. I love, love, love Death Valley. It is such a beautiful place. There's a date farm out that way also that you need to check out. Or a visit to the Chicken Ranch. That is always interesting. No way on earth that I would be in Las Vegas for New Year's Eve - unless I was visiting my friends and we stayed home. That's what we'll do anyhow - stay home.

    1. Nice to see you're in some warmer weather. Hope you get to Death Valley as we are planning on stopping there on the way home so it would be nice to read what you think.

  5. I hope you get better weather than we did in Death Valley. It's a great place to spend time, in our view!

    Good luck with your call to Mellenicom to solve the iPad issues. I called only once and their tech support was first rate.

  6. Pahrump is a quirky little town, but we enjoy it there. At times I wonder if 25% of the inhabitants aren't on the witness protection program. There is ATV areas east of town if you can pull the trailer with the jeep to the jump off point. Wheeler Peak road will take you up into snow by Mount Charleston, Trout and Carpenter Canyon roads will take you to the base of mountains.
    A tip on fuel/gas, you will find no better prices on diesel or gas than at the Smiths Food on 160, so top off everything before you leave.
