Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our other wheels. When we are not vacationing check in for updates, although less frequent, about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

February Part 3??

Well I did expect to finish February last time but I got lazy, so here is the end. LOL

We left the Baker area on Monday and headed to Telephone Cove on Lake Mohave. This is one of the all time prime boondocking sports for us. Close to Laughlin, Bullhead City and if you wish many other scenic areas, but the beauty of the site is the draw.


This will be our base for quite a while as I fly from Las Vegas to Saskatoon for the Co-op Conference and Don holds down the fort.

Our days were spent leisurely enjoying the space, and finding solace in the slow pace. We did have a fridge incident that took a bit of time, but we are old hands at deciphering issues and after two removals, all was well. We did have a time of panic where we purchased Styrofoam coolers for the food in case, but in the end they were not used that long. We have experienced this before, where ammonia crystals get caught in the orifice. If not for our wonderful RV "advisers" back home, Red Neck RV, we would not know the trick of pulling the fridge out (easier than it sounds), tipping upside down for approximately 20 minutes, then returning to its' righted position.



I must say that this is way better than a $2000 new fridge. We will keep doing that until it no longer works.

On Friday we headed into Vegas airport and I departed for Saskatoon. It was an interesting trip as I spent Friday through Monday in Saskatoon, then went to Edmonton to Lindsay's house on Monday. I was so thrilled to be able to fit in a short afternoon with my sister, and appreciated that she was accommodating with my schedule! Lindsay and Mason drove me to the ophthalmologist for my eye injection, we met Tracy for lunch, then back to the airport to head home to Don. I was a bit concerned about all the travelling with my eye but it was smooth sailing, or should I say flying:) I took a few Advil to counteract the irritation and just didn't do any reading.

The next day was finally time to relax. All my prep work and reading for the conference was over, and we could spend the day relaxing and visiting.

On Thursday it felt like time to move on. We had previously scouted an area by Lake Havasu City to boondock, Craggy Wash, so that is where we headed!

And that finishes February and starts March. I will try to stay motivated to write, it seems hard not to just post photos.
