We left the Elks Lodge in Saint George Utah a little later than expected on Thursday. But it was for a good reason… we heard through Facebook that good friends Orman and Susie Claxton were coming through town on their way back home to Gold Canyon AZ. We know Orman and Susie through the Alpine Coach Association and have met up with them a couple of times in our travels., e.g., Hwy-101 (Tillamook, OR); the FMCA Rally (Redmond, OR); and most recently in Yellowstone. Orman is a factory trained and certified Aqua-Hot technician… he serviced ours in Quartzsite earlier this year (link HERE).
We waited a little after noon-time for Orman & Suzie to arrive at the Elks Lodge.
Orman’s new truck.
We went inside the lodge to get them checked in and found out the lodge had hot dogs and sliders at a buffet table for donations.
After catching up with Orman & Suzie, we headed on down to Las Vegas. Safe travels Orman & Suzie! See you in Quartzsite next year 🙂
After an uneventful 120-mile drive and a quick fuel stop, we checked in at the Main Street Station RV Park in North Las Vegas. We’re packed in like sardines here, but it’s only $19 per night for 50 Amp full hook-ups and only a block or two from Fremont Street.
Our son William and his girlfriend Jasmine arrived around 8 PM after their 2-day road trip from Colorado Springs. They drove through 4-corners and spent the night in Blanding, UT. Then they visited Goosenecks State Park, Monument Valley, and then drove to Lake Powell (Page, AZ) where we just were for the Alpine Coach Rally. They visited Antelope Canyon and Glen Canyon Dam before driving through to Las Vegas.
After Will & Jasmine got refreshed from their long travel day(s), we walked over to Fremont Street.
It was a late night. We gave Will & Jasmine our bed and pulled out the couch for us. They’ll stay here in the Coach with us until Sunday. Then they’ll share a hotel room with our daughter Joleen and her boyfriend Dylan over at Treasure Island until the 29th.
Here’s a picture of our spot at the RV Park this morning (Friday):
Stay tuned… we’re looking forward to spending time with William & Jasmine while checking out all the sights here in LV 🙂
