I began this blog as a vehicle for reporting on a 47-day trip made by my wife and me in our motorhome down to the Yucatan Peninsula and back. I continued writing about our post-Yucatan travels and gradually began including non-travel related topics. I often rant about things that piss me off, such as gun violence, fracking, healthcare, education, and anything else that pushes my button. I have a photography gallery on my Smugmug site (

Last Minute Route Change

In the event that we get lost, I want people to know that we are NOT going through Las Vegas as I reported last night.  We are staying on I-40 to Barstow, CA and then taking US 395 North to Lake Tahoe.  There is more 4-lane this way and it is looks to be a much straighter road.  It is the way that our friends, Bruce and Karen, recommended and they are familiar with the territory.  I'm not sure where we will spend the night.  There aren't many choices in our RV park directories or that we could find on the internet for US 395.  Maybe we can find a Walmart.  If you know of any good places let us know.

This is a better route. Las Vegas is certainly worth a visit if you have never been there but it requires a few days to see. Save it for another time. I like 395 and have stayed overnight in Casino parking lots along the highway. They will all welcome you for a night's free parking.
