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:)

April Showers

Ha ha, not really.

The weather continues to be HOT! We moved back to Lake Havasu for another Craggy Wash visit, and as often happens we met up again with Ernie and Deb. We shared more food and drink and visiting! The mountain photo is Finger Butte, a popular mountain named for it's similarity to "the finger".

The heat was really getting to us and as much as we don't entirely enjoy campgrounds, we felt it was necessary for our sanity to escape from the +40 weather and run the air conditioning. There are a few places we like with services and one of those is the Big Bend of the Colorado State Park at Laughlin. Huge sites, full services and access to familiar places made this the right choice. The air conditioner never stopped! Thank goodness we made that stop. The heat can be exhausting. We spent our days sightseeing through the windshield and our evenings with a refreshing beverage and Netflix! One of our favorite stops was the Road Kill Café in Seligman - You Kill it We Grill It. LOL

April was destined to be a short month, as I had to fly back to Saskatoon twice. The first one was unplanned when we originally left, but the company CEO retired and I had to attend interviews.

After leaving Laughlin we searched for a new site in a cooler climate and settled in the Lovell Canyon Dispersed Camping area, west of Las Vegas. NEW LOCATION #5! You wouldn't believe how much cooler it was there. This was where Don stayed while I was jetting around. He can attest to the cooler temps by the frost observed and signs of SNOW! Meanwhile down the hill in Vegas it was still scalding hot.

When I returned to Vegas, Don had moved to Government Wash. This is definitely our favorite place to visit Las Vegas, Many many areas to chose for camping, and again, close to our favorite city! We spent a lot of time touring Henderson, found a new beer and eats place, saw the arena where the Silver Knights (AHL hockey) play, and walked the Railroad Tunnel Trail to Hoover Dam.

Sadly this busy spring time came to an end. Something different for us his year were all my trips back for work, but overall it has worked out all right. While I am on my final April trip to Saskatoon Don will be driving home on his own, and we will meet again in Alberta.

Stay tuned as we share our Alberta adventures with you!
