Departing Quartzsite For Phoenix This Morning Posted: Tuesday 9 December 2008 9:52
After one week here in Quartzsite I am leaving for Phoenix where I will spend the next couple of months.
I will write a blog update either today or tomorrow discussing this week in Quartzsite.
I'm Here In Las Vegas, Nevada Posted: Sunday 2 November 2008 20:41
I got a late start. I didn't leave until noon and I still got here by 2:00. I am all settled in at the Arizona Charlies RV Resort. I plan to stay one month before heading South to Quartzite, Arizona.
After I got the rig setup I walked over to the Arizona Charlies Casino and had an early dinner at their Wild West Buffet.
I bet you can't guess what I forgot today. If you said to put my clock back one hour for going off daylight savings time, you would be wrong. I forgot that Nevada is PST. So when I finished dinner I stopped by the lounge and had an after dinner Single Malt Scotch (Glen Levet). Then I realized it was only 4:30 PM and dark outside.
I'm back at the rig now watching CSI and enjoying a stogie. I feel a little tired so I am going to go to bed early. In the morning I'm going to checkout Arizona Charlies breakfast bar. Then back to the rig to get some work done. I haven't done much the last week or so which means I have some catch up to do.
Underway! Shift Colors, Departing For Las Vegas, Nevada Posted: Sunday 2 November 2008 9:41
Yup! Underway again or will be very shortly after breakfast and I finish getting the rig ready for the road.
I'm in no hurry because it is only about two hours to Las Vegas. My only concern is that they were not doing road work yesterday and will be today. That probably is remote but it sure could ruin my transit.
See ya in Las Vegas!
Are You Ready For Another Change In Plans? Posted: Saturday 1 November 2008 18:38
I went into Las Vegas today to checkout the RV Parks and the traffic. I am darn glad I did. For a starter most of the way into Las Vegas going South on I15 is under construction. Fortunately they were not actually working today. Also the RV Park I was thinking about staying in was no longer there. This is the second time this is happened to me in Las Vegas.
Well, now to the schedule change. I decided to travel on Sunday instead of waiting for Monday. I don't even want to fight all the traffic that the construction will cause on Monday. I found a couple of RV Parks that will be available tomorrow (they don't take reservations).
Update: Driving Into Las Vegas Saturday, Not Today Posted: Friday 31 October 2008 12:58
Slight change. I was planning to go down to Las Vegas today to scout for an RV Park.
Last night I realized my Verizon cell phone was not working here in Leeds, Utah. After spending an hour on the phone with Verizon support they had to manually program my phone to work here in a "roaming" area. This just increases the importance of me moving on.
But, this morning I rolled back over and slept in after deciding to wait until Saturday to go into Las Vegas. I still plan to leave either Monday or Tuesday which would be a week earlier than I planned.
I am also planning to go to Zion National Park Sunday so that my short stay here is not a waste of effort and planning.
Heads Up! I'm Considering Making A Change In My Travel Plans Posted: Thursday 30 October 2008 19:59
The Zion West RV Park in Leeds, Utah is not going to work out for me. There is nothing wrong with the park itself except for internet access. My Verizon Internet access is on the fringe here and I can barely stay connected. Additionally, the Wifi provided by the RV Park is a standard home Wifi and the signal strength is also low and drops in and out.
I am now planning to drive down to Las Vegas tomorrow and reserve me a space in an RV Park. This is not the way I normally do it but the last two times I stayed in Las Vegas I had a heck of a time finding a space. Since my travel schedule is so fluid I tend not to make reservations in advance. So I want to be sure I have a place to stay before I drive through the mess that Las Vegas traffic traffic has become.
Arrived In Leeds, Utah And Initial Stay Plans Posted: Wednesday 29 October 2008 17:25
I'm here. Everything went well. I was on the road for about 2 hours. I am staying at the Zion West RV Park in Leeds, Utah. The park is laid out for pull through rigs which is the way I like it because I travel alone and it is a bit more difficult to back in to a lot by myself.
The biggest problem I am having settling in is with my internet. I am on the fringe of the Verizon network and the signal is real weak. It drops on and off. Fortunately the RV Park has Wifi so I am all set. I will discuss this problem in more detail in a full blog.
Tomorrow, I plan to go into St. George and look around. On Saturday I am planning to visit the Zion National Park.
As for the rest of the day I am going to relax and get some online business work done.
I Authorized Myself Late Sleepers Today. Only 140 Miles To Travel Today Posted: Wednesday 29 October 2008 9:25
Last night I got serious about researching an RV Park to stay at in St. George and did not have much luck. I found two of them had been sold even though they were still showing up as an RV Park on Google.
But all is not lost. I found two RV Parks in Leeds, Utah which is just 15 miles North of St. George. So I made a command decision to stay there. Leeds is only 30 miles from Zion National Park and it is only a short drive into St. George if I need something that Leeds doesn't have.
Anyway, since I slept in late knowing I had a short drive today I won't depart Fillmore until after 11:00.
Second Travel Day Completed. I Am Now In Fillmore, Utah Posted: Tuesday 28 October 2008 17:40
Went a little further today than I planned. I went about 275 miles which is more than the 200 I was planning.
The good side for me is that tomorrow I will only have to go about 160 miles from Fillmore into St. George. I like that.
Stopped For The Night In Declo, Idaho Posted: Monday 27 October 2008 19:55
I left Meridian/Boise Idaho this morning. As promised I drove a short distance today. Less than 200 miles.
I had a lot to do this morning to get ready to depart so I "Hit The Decks A Running" when I got up. Tomorrow I will sleep in a bit and and depart mid morning. I want to pass through Salt Lake City after lunch then start looking for an RV Park.
If anything interesting turns up I will add it here. Actually, I hope nothing "Exciting" happens.
Underway! Shift Colors, Heading South For The Winter Posted: Monday 27 October 2008 9:10
Departing this morning and heading South. My general plan is to take a couple of leisure day stops along the way then stop for a week or two in St. George, Utah.
I am going to make this transit in a casual mode traveling only three or four hours a day. I want to arrive in St. George early in the day so I will have time to check out the few RV parks they have. When I try to drive a marathon and arrive late I find I am tired, and rushed and tend to take the first RV Park I come on. I'm going to avoid that mistake this time.
I will write more once I arrive at my first stop which will be most likely in South Idaho around Twin Falls.
