Driving in Southern Oregon
​Once our classes were finished, we left Sparks, NV last Thursday (Apr 18). Since then, we started heading towards Portland, OR. We stopped for the night at the Desert Rose Casino in Alturas, CA. Although this was a very small casino, the RV parking was great! Quiet, dark, and away from any trains and roads. Our next stop was intended to be at Kingsley Field ANG Campground in Klamath Falls, OR. Ho...

Viewing Our Travel Map

Our Travel Map
After spending one night in Tonopah, NV, we got an early start on the road to beat the high winds. Since high winds were still predicted and we got an early start, I decided to just head into Reno and spend the week there. Reno is where we were heading for to attend the CLM Services annual training. Connie and I will be teaching a few classes there, even though we're not working in the campgrounds...

I enjoyed Connie's posts. Have you had any experiences with cooking on the road that you would like to share?

Grand Falls, AZ

​After leaving the Petrified Forest National Park, we drove 90 miles to the Twin Arrows Casino and Resort. This is located near the very small town of Winona, about 20 miles east of Flagstaff, AZ. For my exhaust "regeneration" issue, we read somewhere to drive the motorhome like "we were running from the cops". So I did. Well, I drove it at 75mph (the speed limit) for 20 minutes. I usually dr...

It was in the mid 20's overnight.Due to the cold and playing the radio all week, the motorhome starting battery was very low and went dead almost immediately. The trickle cha...
