Newbie (1/14)

  1. will depart Rapid City tomorrow (Monday) headed South . Going thru Wyoming to I-15 in Salt Lake City and then more south to Parker, AZ for the winter
  2. Never received a private message on the escapees site. No snow this year but its only been three days since we got here. Figure we will have a little before too long tho. Rain and possible snow predicted for Thursday
  3. Arrived Rapid City KOA, got set up and it got cold. Will be here till approximately Oct 22. Booked solid for the Sturgis rally which is the 75th year and they are predicting 500K + for this year. Should be fun. If you come up for the rally, stop by.
  4. Beaver, Utah KOA this evening. Weather sure has changed from 95+ in AZ to mid 60's here. Climate shock. Rock Springs, WY KOA Wednesday evening. Expect the weather to be either rain or ??
  5. Escaped from the Colorado River and Parker. AZ this morning and will be hiding out at the Las Vegas RV resort on Nellis Blvd for 4 days. They have recently opened up a few sites that are 100' by about 30' with plenty of room for everything including the jeep, trailer etc. Bit pricey but well worth it. Will depart here on 3/31 and head north and east to Rapid City on 4/3.
  6. Departed Rapid City on October 23rd after winterizing the campground and made it to the central coast of CA in 5 days. Really don't like going to CA with their 55 MPH when towing and they do watch for it. Not to forget the terrible roads, rougher then a cob in most places. Spent 9 days in Atascadero, CA visiting kin in Fresno and other places. Today we Pulled into Emerald Cove on the CA side of the CA side of the Colorado River from Parker, AZ where we will be until April.
  7. Once again it is time to head north for the summer. Departing Emerald Cove at Parker, AZ headed thru Las Vegas to Salt Lake City then east to Rawlins, Wyo then north and east to Rapid City KOA for our 6th summer. Sturgis will be the 74th annual event so don't expect the crowds to be too large until next year and #75. That one will be full of fun and games
  8. Into Emerald Cove just north of Earp, CA until April. No weather issues since Rapid City. Just as a matter of info, the railroad crossing on 95 between Needles and Las Vegas has been repaired for the present. Don't know how long the repairs will last but at least it is now posted at 20 MPH. Highly recommend that you not exceed that speed.
  9. Pilled into Las Vegas this afternoon and found a very pleasant 81 degrees for a couple of days then down to Parker.
  10. Having survived the Oct 4 blizzard and over 5 feet of snow, we escaped the cold in Rapid City this morning and headed south to Parker, AZ for the winter. Currently overniting in Rawlins, WY where it was 60+ today. A real nice change in weather. Will be in Parker about the Oct 28 till April.
  11. Weather is just a little speedbump at this stage of the game. We like to think we have a good gig going here. Good people and quite a bit of fun once everything is in order.
  12. Well, got into Rapid City KOA on Sunday as planned. Monday, it started out a little slow but the snow picked up Monday evening and as of this morning, we have right at 24 inches of snow with drifts up to 4 ft. I-90 east and west are closed as well as 79 south to Nebraska until further notice. And to think we left 90 degree weather and came up for this.
  13. shoulda posted this the 4th but got busy. Left Parker, AZ and went over the same RR tracks Mike did but at about 10 MPH as a train just went by. Fortunately was in 4th gear and it wasn't to bad. Rougher then a cob. Wound up in Beaver, Utah and now are in Rock Springs, WY. Figure on being in Rapid City on Sunday. Lot of rain in/around Salt Lake City and wind up here on I-80
  14. Mike/Chris: How about next Friday for lunch in Havasu? Have a guy comeing by Thursday to go over the trailer with some fresh water and maybe a little wax. Probably seems good to get somewhere warm although the last few days are not particularily nice but livable. I have your number captured on my phone from last year. Jim
  15. Pulled into Emerald Cove by Parker AZ after a 2200 run from Rapid City down thru CA and will be here until about April 1 +/- a few days either way. Had a bout with California rough roads, they should be ashamed of their state. Don't have to go back there for a few years. Ran ahead of the rain leaving the coast. Sure is getting nasty up north weather wise. If you are on Parker Dam Road in this area, look for the truck.
