Dean (the husband) Shalane (the wife :O)
Today was a hot and windy day here in Vegas. Still, it was a perfect day to get out and get some things purchased that we'll need for our summer stay in the mountains of Lincoln County Nevada. My wife and I are both teachers and we enjoy the summers. That's an understatement! All of our children have left the nest and we live in our house on wheels, a 26 foot travel trailer. Most people think we're crazy or cool, or perhaps a little of both. Both for sure!
Anyway, the RV resort that we will be traveling to is in a remote part of the state. I wouldn't call it a resort. lol Where we live now, Las Vegas RV Resort, is worthy of the title. It's adults only, has a hot tub and beautiful pool and has a nice lounge with a BIG screen tv. Eagle Valley "Resort "
is for the red neck at heart. When we get there, we'll share more about it and post pictures. Today we took full advantage of our "city" life to pick up some supplies we'll need to survive through a month long stay in the boondocks. We're loading up in hopes of avoiding having to drive our diesel dually truck 110 miles one way to the nearest Wal-Mart to go shopping. We like this kind of shopping! It's exciting to talk about and search for the stuff we're gonna need for our summer sabbatical.
In the last couple of weeks we have bought the following supplies: (We'll expand more on these later.)
Portable solar generator
Electric blanket It's cold where we boondock up in the mountains.
Collapsible water jug
Portable shower tent
New roasting forks How do we always lose these things?
Sling shots I bought those. Dean has never shot one, so he has no idea how fun it is! I remember going down to the banks of the Missouri river when I was a young girl and shootin cans off a stump. Those are some of my favorite memories.
Food, food, food
Lots of sundries (deo, tp, soap, etc.)
New fishin' pole for me! I wanted a pink one! :O)Fishing stuff that we probably didn't need but LOVE to buy
TARTER SAUCE!!! We eat all the fish we catch
We'll share more about packing for our trip, the products that we purchased and what we think of them in a later blog. We're excited to try out some of our new camping toys. :O)
Until then, happy trails!
