3/4/07 Sorry we haven't posted for several weeks. Not much exciting news. We have been in Laughlin, NV, first at the Avi Casino and for the past week parked behind the Ramada Express. Several sets of our friends have been with us and we enjoyed their company very much. Lee and Susie Blattner were here with us at the Ramada and other friends, John and Vi Primmer with us at the Avi. Other RV friends, John & Cathy Robnik, joined us for one day and night on their way to NASCAR work in Las Vegas. We went out with them for a microbrew at the Colorado Belle one afternoon at about 4pm. One thing led to another and by the time the evening ended at about 12:30 am, we had imbibed enough to allow ourselves the craziness of going bowling at the Riverside. We haven't been bowling for about 28 years and we paid the price with some sore muscles for the next few days. Our current plan, the next time we get together with Cathy and John, is to skip bowling and try roller-skating...
I have finally finished some paperwork and the dreaded taxes, while Elaine has managed to keep herself busy in the casinos. We paid our camping fees that way, but luckily didn't take a huge hit to the wallet except in the Sam's Club and thrift stores. The sun has been shining most days but unfortunately, the wind has been ferocious and has even kept us from doing our daily walk on a few occasions. Since we are trying to get in decent shape before our next cruise, this has been annoying! Today we are heading towards California, where we will spend some time at the Jojoba Hills SKP Park, in Southern California while waiting for our appointment at the National RV factory on March 12. This new rig we have, which we still love, didn't have a propane oven when we bought it, just a convection oven. As all you RVers know, this means we have to use a lot of electricity to bake anything, and we like to boondock all the time, so usually don't have electrical hookups. We NEED an oven - so we are paying big time to have one installed.
We have friends at Jojoba and are looking forward to some fun times with them too. More on that in the next installment.

I can't imagine not having an oven living like we do - so glad you're getting one. Then hurry home! Hope Elaine is up to leading morning walks during Stagecoach Days!
