The beginning of a new chapter - retirement! The beginning of a new chapter - retirement!

The first sunrise of February 2020 marked the beginning of a new chapter - our first day of retirement! After 40+ years of 40+ hour work weeks we now have more freedom to explore this beautiful country of ours. And we are beyond excited.

For the third year in a row, we spent Thanksgiving 2019 with our family in sunny Florida. They definitely know how to take care of RV travelers!

Full-hookups with our choice of indoor or outdoor parking, gorgeous heated pool (constant 92F!), massive sauna, 24/7 jazz softly playing and an incredible covered bar area just outside our door. Hard to imagine anywhere else that can top this RV spot. We're thankful indeed!

We love roaming through the cacti at Saguaro National Park in Arizona. It is so different than anywhere we have ever been. It’s like living in a terrarium.

Lunch on the Lonliest Road in America

The movie, “The Misfits” with Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe was filmed in Dayton, Nevada and this building can be seen in the movie.

Dayton, Nevada lies at the mouth of Gold Cañon on the Carson River. It’s the site of Nevada’s first gold discovery and a contender for being the state’s earliest Euro-American permanently inhabited settlement. After gold was discovered in California, thousands of fortune seekers trekked West. Those following the Carson River Route often camped at the mouth of Gold Cañon (Dayton) while waiting for snow to melt in the Sierra Nevada.

Around the corner is the Dayton Taphouse, the oldest saloon in town where Marilyn frequented during filming. We stopped there for lunch and the food and service was excellent. Add Dayton, Nevada to your list of must visits.
