I thought the KOA was expensive!
I ended up at Viewpoint Golf Resort that had room. It was very expensive. The first spot I was assigned had a permanent home across the street that was doing some renovations and there was a compressor running so I went back and asked for a different site. They gave me a premium site with the big boys of RVing. Unfortunately, my definition of premium and theirs are far apart. This was a crowded place out in the open and though the sites were big, everyone steps on each other.
It was a clean place with good showers and facilities. If I was going to be there for some time it would’ve been better that I used the fun stuff they had.
I went to visit a co-worker from home at the Organ Stop…a fun place with adequate food.
The next day I went to Valle del Oro where our friends from Chilliwack are staying and we had lunch and spent some time at the pool before going off to a Thai dinner that they unexpectedly picked up. It was great to see them and if I return to Phoenix this trip I will make them pad Thai. That was a late night and I wanted to get an early start the next day.
Packed up, dumped and hooked up and out the gate by nine. Not as early as I’d hoped but enough. It was a long drive to Las Vegas. The plan was to go to Furnace Creek and meet up with Jim and Tammie, but there was no space available when I looked and I thought there might be space at the Red Rock RV campground. I arrived, drove through and all booked up for some time.
I thought since we jointed Boondocker’s Welcome I thought I would look up to see if there was somewhere I could stay. I used the location that came up in Las Vegas and they were available and accommodating.
After Red Rock I managed to make it and park before dark and had interesting conversations with the hostess.
Meanwhile, Linda at home is dog sitting and Hector has a playmate. This may end up getting us another doggie at some point.
I had come to Las Vegas to hike with our friends Jim and Tammie and they had great hikes prepared.
We hiked Fossil Ridge (Canyon) and it was an exploratory hike to check various routes.
Another day and another hike.
It was great hike and a very informative hike. Jim knew a great deal about the area.
I love these hike where we are high and we have a vista of Las Vegas.
After the hike we stopped in and received a tour of the Archery Club.
We visited the Las Vegas Archers Field range and that was a fabulous end to the day.
Rain today and thus a blog post.
