After we got all set up at the wonderful Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort we basically did nothing. There, that catches you up on our Monday events. Don’t get your hopes up...our Tuesday wasn’t much better. I took the Jeep to get washed then did some more sprucing up to make it look like it belongs in this ritzy park. It has been taking a beating lately and as it approaches 98,000 miles, I’ve been tryi...

Saturday, September 23, 2017 we had a Celebration of Life service for Larry here in Henderson, Nevada. It was attended by many family & friends, making it a very special day. We had an open mic and anyone who wished to speak was invited to share or comment with a memory. A poem 'As I See It' written by our friend Phill Randall from Custer, South Dakota was read by nephew Ken Fiscus, a text sent by...

Wow, it's been a huge couple of days, no time for 'dear tripjournal'. We really enjoyed our final day in Vegas and in fact I would have enjoyed one more day there as by then we had the land of fake all sorted and were enjoying the Blackjack tables and pokey machines. It's an amazing atmosphere, the noise level is massive, wherever you go there is music, people enjoying themselves, food and alcohol...

Las Vegas - Disneyland for adults, happy land. Donald Trump would love it, as it adds a whole new meaning to the word 'fake'. It's gauche, over the top but heaps of fun. Everybody here is having fun, laughing (even whilst gambling, so different to the atmosphere in casinos I've visited anywhere else in the world where the gamblers appear to be facing a life and death situation), drinking, eating ...

It is with great sadness that I tell you that Larry passed on August 28, 2017. As you know he had been fighting a two year battle with cancer. This dreaded disease finally became too much for his human body to handle. Just know that Larry was at great peace, knowing that he would soon be walking with Jesus in his heavenly home with a new glorified body. We were fortunate enough to have time for h...

Righto Las Vegas, we are on our way, brighten those lights, heat up the Tables and get ready to bedazzle and surprise us! There is a small matter of a 14 hour flight on United Airlines (ugghh) looming, however I've already transported my mind to 'The Strip' and plenty of razzle and dazzle. See you at the Luxor (just the idea of staying in a fake pyramid makes me smile)....

Saturday (Joe's actual Birthday) we left Dan and Lisa's with slightly delicate heads and headed for Sin City which took roughly 4 and a half hours to get there. Naturally we had to stop en route for an IHOP birthday breakfast. We arrived at the hottest (48 degrees) and busiest (Labour day weekend) place on earth. The evening was spent drinking and mooching, the less said the better! Sunday and to...

We left Waldport this afternoon and drove to Eugene Oregon for our 7:00 PM flight to Las Vegas. We are flying back to Las Vegas with Betty for a few days. Betty’s month with us went by so fast, it’s hard to believe it’s already over. We had a superb time showing her the beautiful Oregon Coast as well as parts of Washington too, this added two new states for her. We will be staying at Betty’s home ...

It is one week before this years vacation. Today I will start calling hotels and tour guide companies that I have reservations with in order to reconfirm all of the reservations. I do not know if it is necessary these days but I am old school so I will start calling today. One week from today, we will be traveling to Flagstaff, Arizona to visit the Lowell Observatory so I will call the hotel in Fl...

Managing to negotiate (sweet talk) my way out of the resort fee (wtf), and get the concierge lounge access thrown in free, I decided to stay in a big hotel. Passing up the cheaper alternative of hostel without pool or Hooters! Ouch!! Note to self: when the temperature reaches 111F (42C) must wear shoes for walk to pool! Not that I seen it but apparently there is also a sign up stating you MUST! Wh...
