Hey, a lot of work went into thisDSC_0011

Then about 4-6 PM (Friday) locals came in for the holiday weekend.  They landed on both sides of us two deep.  Thank goodness no kids.DSC_0013DSC_0014DSC_0004


Here’s those Cameo levelers in action.  Saved a lot of unnecessary grunting  when using the blocks.  The camper is up already. DSC_0015

Retirement is sometimes not saying anything.

Day 25

No walking for me this morning.  Too many grapes and not enough bathrooms.

As we use to say in Nam, 4 days and a wake up and we’re out of here.

Ordered some Cameo tire/RV levelers (3) from Amazon.  They got to be easier than the yellow blocks.  If newbies are using them, they must work!  I should get them Friday sometime.


How’s Eddy feeling?

Retirement, is it?

Day 24

Previously on Monday night in downtown old Las Vegas after the ZIP Line.1632

Go Eddy……….private thing….

Nope, ain’t gonna walk today.  Instead I got all the BBQ stuff out for an outside breakfast cooked by Chef Kraig.  It was good..

Here he is …DSC_0001 - CopyJust going thru stuff.DSC_0002DSC_0005

Carol is drying clothes on our ladder clothes line.DSC_0006 - CopyDSC_0007DSC_0010

I finished up going thru my GoPro.  I thought I brought everything.  I have no charges for my three batteries.  Not even a charger for my wrist controller.  Maybe I can at least charge the batteries using the GoPro itself and at least use it.  I think it takes about 2 hours for each charge.  Time will tell.

I got some binoculars 10X50 from Amazon and delivered to Kristy’s address.  Hey, their cheap and they work really good.DSC_0003 - Copy

I also ordered some bright LEDs for the camper.  We shall see.  I installed them and everyone likes them so far.

Yes, I’m bored and am catching up on old stuff.

I got to go thru these  “things” and see what’s on them if anything.  Plus, I got a small bag with 4 micro cards, GoPro?DSC_0004 - Copy

Plus I have a Drone with a camera that I haven’t even opened. 

Plus, I got a cam dash that  I’m stuck on the “how it works”  stage.  DSC_0008

And then just before we left tx I got a Rrand McNally 7 that is working just outstanding.  $200 bucks and will worth it so far.  Too bad it don’t come with the WiFi for gas prices along your route.DSC_0009 - Copy

Retirement is having the time….

Day 23

At Denny’s by 6:30?  Nah, not us.  Too Bad.  We’re here/there.  Kraig had the $4 meal, I had the $6 meal and Carol, well, hers was over $10.

Wow, time for Walmart.  There went a quick $75 and an hour.  Only one register open and five customers waiting. They are not very customer friendly here.

8:30 at the rig.  Kraig went to the pool.  Now what to do the rest of the day.

Oh, saw a RV wash guy.  He wanted $75 to wash our camper.  Nah, not today.

One week today and we will moving up I-15 towards Zion then hang a right.  We plan to be in the South Fork just as the Escapees HOP ends there.  Mark is a last moment fill in host.  We were not needed according to the HOP director.   I gave as much verbal help as I could give Mark.  He will have fun. 

I got out my GoPro that I never really have learned it, hardly at all.  Just going thru the thing and all it’s attachments.

Well, it’s 9 PM and I'm getting tired.

Retirement means you can check out the little things you’ve been meaning too.

Day 22

Wow, we slept in.  We were walking at 6:30 AM vice 6 AM. 

We got a rental RV next that speak VERY little English.  Parents plus 3 or 4 girls I think.  They were nice.  We managed of course. 

The day went by very fast…. then about 8 PM Kristy and her friend picked up Carol, Kraig and me.  We were being taken to a ZIP LINE here in Vegas.  Over 100’ above people old Vegas downtown about 4 blocks long and about 35 MPH.  Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

And were off……DSC_0005DSC_0007DSC_0008

We were on top of this bill board thing. It was really exciting.  I would do it again without hesitation.DSC_0041 

Retirement is doing things out of character.
