Heading for cooler weather . . .

Today was pretty much a get-ready-to-travel day. And Jan got nervous when I told her the nearest Wal-Mart was 30 mile away from South Lake Tahoe where we’ll be for two weeks, so she wanted a Wal-Mart run before we leave tomorrow.

We started off with a Supreme Croissant Breakfast Sandwich from Jack in the Box, and then I topped off the toad tank with unleaded. I was surprised to see that the price had jumped 8 cents a gallon just in the last few days. Bummer.

After Wal-Mart, we ran a couple of more errands before getting back home about 2:30. Then about 3:30 I walked over to Jim and Peri Dean’s to take a look at the settings on their Cellphone Booster system. They’ve got slightly different system than what I’ve got, but the settings are the same.

Then a little after 4pm we all headed up to the Boulder Station Casino for the buffet and some last minute gambling. During our visit here, we won a $3 dining discount, a $5 dining discount, 1500 points on our cards, and Jan won a very nice polo shirt. Not Bad.

We got back to the rig a little after 7pm, and since it was still light enough, I spent some time stowing away some things for tomorrow’s travel.

While I was still outside, a friend of Peri Dean’s, Gail Grosman, showed up to get some copies of Nick Russell’s Gypsy Journal RV Newspaper to take with her.

We’re really looking forward moving north to cooler weather tomorrow. The high tomorrow in Tonopah is going to be 81 degrees, and then a high of 72 in South Lake Tahoe on Thursday.

Sounds real nice after the 101 degrees here in Las Vegas today.

  1. We love Jim and Peri. They spent the winter in Texas an hour from us. We got together and hiked, played pinochle and Sequence. Can’t wait to see them again!

    Enjoy Lake Tahoe. It is so gorgeous!

  2. Jan and I really enjoyed getting together with them too.

    Tried to convince them to meet us at the Escapade in Gillette.

    Hopefully they’ll change their minds.
