Las Vegas area

When we left Albuquerque, we headed to Las Vegas. We spent a couple of nights there before picking up Jeff’s dad from the airport and heading to the Front Sight gun training center near Pahrump, NV where the two of them spent 5 days in classes and on the range.  We boondocked on the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) land just outside the gate.  This was our first experience with boondocking for more than a day or two.  We used our generator to recharge the batteries once a day, and our water and tanks lasted a little over a week.  It was really nice for them to be so close to the range. They enjoyed themselves and learned a lot but were quite tired each night. 

We needed to empty the black and grey tanks, refill the fresh water and fridge, and do laundry, so we packed up and headed into town for a few days. We stayed at the Escapee’s park in Pahrump and were able to enjoy a potluck Thanksgiving dinner and meet lots of new people.  Then we headed back out to the BLM land for a while.

I decided to make a last minute trip to Kansas City for the first weekend in December to attend the bridal shower of my future daughter-in-law.  In order to be closer to the airport, we moved back to the Thousand Trails RV park in Las Vegas.  Our membership allows us free stays up to 14 days at a time.  It has been well worth it.   

After I returned, we decided to boondock again somewhere quiet so that Jeff could get his next class recorded and edited.  We went east and found a beautiful spot near Lake Mead.  We definitely love having the ability to boondock for 7-10 days. It’s not only free, but it’s also so quiet.   

Once Jeff finished his class, we moved back to the Thousand Trails RV park to spend a few days cleaning and getting the trailer ready to put in storage while we fly to Dallas for Christmas and then KC for New Year’s.   

Time to start planning our travels for 2019…
