Day 389: Las Vegas, Day 5

Shabbos was pretty hot, but thankfully it was cool enough in the RV to spend the night.  After lunch, we walked to my parent’s house since we figured it would be too hot in the RV to spend the afternoon there.

This morning we drove out to Jean Lake, a dry sink a little less than half an hour form Las Vegas.  It was a windy day, but eventually the wind died down enough to pull off a forward launch.  Aloft it was very bumpy, so I only flew a couple laps and came down after less than 10 minutes.

This was my third solo flight:


B models the radio harness:


I hope to fly again soon with better weather! We brought the RV back to my parent’s house to park curbside.

Oldies but goodies

Well, it took some doing, but I managed to add all of our pre-LookBeforeYouLive RV trips to this blog.  Just click on the menu item or sidebar item titled Old RV Trips.  We’ve got gems dating all the way back to 2009 with plenty of photos, like this sunset photo of the Grand Canyon from Day 13 of our 2011 summer trip:


I’ve also added our 2010 and 2011 summer trips to the trip map.

Were you wondering, for example, why we didn’t visit Two Guns or Meteor Crater on Day 384? Of course you were.  The answer is that we already visited these sites on the 12th day of our 2011 vacation.  Take a look, won’t you?

Day 387: Las Vegas, Day 3

Today was spent taking care of long overdue repair and clean-up items.  We also offloaded still more stuff from the RV that we’re not regularly using into my parents’ garage.  It’s been over 100 degrees every day we’ve been here so far, with no relief in sight.

This afternoon, we moved the RV to my parents’ synagogue so we can open the slides and be closer to the synagogue we attend:


Good Shabbos from Henderson, Nevada!

Day 386: Las Vegas, Day 2

This morning I dropped off the truck for its first oil change and went for a bike ride while it was being done. I forgot to stop the workout track, so only the first 34 miles are by bicycle:

This is not the right time of year to go for a ride in the middle of the day:


We also went suit shopping for M and took care of a couple odds and ends.  Not a bad day!
