It has been one heck of a year.

I came across this blog post this morning and got to thinking about all we've done in just one year. Seems like it was a lot longer than a year since we were heading to Vegas. I wrote the post one day after we'd left Brown County - we'd stopped in Joplin, Missouri for the night. 
Just a short recap. 
     Left Indiana July 16
     Signed papers on new home in Vegas July 31
     Moved into the house August 20
     Had surgery October 8
     Left for Mexico in Alfa December 2
     Got back into USA March 5
     Had all kinds of medical tests to find out nothing is wrong with me April/May. Also got new doctor.
Since then we've bought a new RV, got rid of the Alfa (I miss it). Taken two trips in the new RV - we should be back home by this weekend. Got a new great granddaughter and have another one on the way.
No wonder my blood pressure was sky high! 
We visited Virginia City today and I took 258 pictures so it will take me a while to go through them.
I don't imagine we'll see too much interesting scenery tomorrow - going east on the 50 to the 95 then south towards. So then I'll post some of the scenes from VC. 
Here are three I thought were funny - Adult content only.
A couple of t-shirts for sale in one shop

And some bags of kettle corn for sale. 


  1. Tried to get a job at the Mustang ranch, they said I was to old.... LOL

  2. There is always the Moonlight Bunny Ranch just outside of Carson City.

  3. Wow! Carol and Bill !!!
    You two are super-human beings. I am completely amazed at your energy.



  4. Finally got caught up with all of your travels. I knew you would miss the Alfa. No way could I ever downsize from our 40 footer even after the dogs are no longer with us.

    You HAVE done a lot this past year and a bit. Don't forget all the packing up of your house. That was a massive job.

    Hope that all is well at home.
