For the first time since we've been on the road, our "friend worlds" have combined! One of our friends from high school and her hubby are full-timers since January!
It is really cool to have the history of our wonderful hometown, as well as the excitement of this life style in common. Especially with a couple as fun as Dina and Audie :-))) I have yet to remember to get a pic of them!
We have a quick meet up with them in Las Vegas before we all move on to the reunion in Laughlin. And because our homes are on wheels we're able to "move in right next door" when we get here!
Wednesday is another beautiful drive through a very green desert, down a very steep hill, and into our very familiar location - Riverside Casino RV Park. This is our third year here and with FHUs, 50 amp and good water pressure, a level site, plenty of space between sites, and those fun friends across the street, we're happy to be back :-)
We have a tall, skinny tree at the front of our site which blocks our satellite, but since we spend very little time at home, it's not an issue.
Thursday folks start arriving and we spend several hours by the casino pool greeting them and getting caught up.
|Every time the sun moves, we tuck in further to the shaded corner.|
|Jimmy, Kevin and Mike - we visited all of them in our travels, and here we are together again :-)|
|Thursday night there's already a couple dozen of us.|
|Cool friends reunited - Jimmy, Coy, Bill, Rennie and Donnie|
|Stupid doesn't take long.......|
|Our first stop are the Laughlin Labyrinths, six patterns beautifully laid and well maintained. We each walk one, seeking answers and appreciating the spirit here.|
|Cheryl, Patty and Dianne|
|No Sue, we aren't skydiving - but yes, it's very windy!|
|We had such a fun time.|
|Our Patty-wind-gauge says it's still blowing......|
|We get to the golf course as the first team comes in - Donnie, Bill, Jimmy and Harold. Did they win the tourney?|
|When asked "Who won?"|
|A gathering of Eagles.|
|Rhonda was in my class and I haven't seen her or sister Carlene (with her husband) in four decades.|
|Alumni from our "oldest" class - 1968|
|Jodee's class - 1973|
|Bill's class - 1974|
|Our youngest class (note how much more limber they are!) - Class of 1979|
|Bill with Mr and Mrs B.|
|Glad I got to see Jacquie who could only be there the one night.|
|The answer is yes, this team won the tournament :-)|
|Jodee and Diane. None of us won :-(|
|Rennie and Cheryl own the hippie vibe.|
|What's a hippie?|
|Anna and Bill|
|Cruisin' the Colorado River|
|We had a fun time!!|
Monday morning we decide to stay another day and hopefully I'll feel better.
