    Castle Rock

    July 29, 2016 in the United States

    CC1 decided to take a giant Stanley Steamer right before we reached the Wyoming border. Took the Castle Rock exit just to see what it was all about and just like before, as soon as I came to a stop she cachunked. Got her over in the gravel after several tries. I think we will rest here for the night and let the command Center take a break.

    Bear River Awesome!

    July 30, 2016 in the United States

    Today was a great day. River and I had a great time. We got on the road about 7:30. Picked up supplies at the Walmart in Evanston and then headed for the Bear River. We pulled in to the spot we were in before but there were people there this time. We were going to live with it until some yahoo's pulled in right below us. All that space and they want to be within 30 ft of someone else. We moved. Love the new spot, right on the river and no neighbors! Had a great thunderstorm, fished afterwards and caught a bunch of little cutthroat.Read more

    Silver Summit

    August 12, 2016 in the United States

    I pulled over because I wanted to make sure I had coverage in case Pete called. His dad passed and I wanted to be available in case he needed me. I think I will go back down and take him a bottle of Blanton tomorrow.

    Battery Bank

    August 13, 2016 in the United States

    So i figured out one of the main advantages of having a house on wheels. You can just take it to Home Depot with you, that way if you need anything you can just walk into the store. Soooo much less. Frustrating! The Battery bank is in and supplying power. I decided to start with 4 and see how it goes but i have the capacity for 6.

    Thank you Rob for building the box for me Awesome work! You are a true craftsman.Read more

    Living Large

    August 24, 2016 in the United States

    View from Park city Walmart! So I came up to visit my parents and stay at their place. There were some reasons I wanted to be close in case they needed me. I managed to get my RV into one parking stall with the tail hanging over the grass. The well healed gentryfied folks of the neighborhood would have none of that. 2 hours latter I had a notice on my wind sheild saying I was parked illegally. Of course I wasn't but since it is technically private property I had to move. Sometimes you just want to slap people!Read more

    Hotel: Powderwood Condo

    I was so tired last night that I didn't write. So I am writing from our Condo in Park City with views of the mountains from our deck including the Olympic ski park. We can see the ski jumps and whatever the other horrifying ski runs on the side of the mountain are with the 2002 Olympic logo on them. The condo is really nice. 3 bedrooms 2 baths. It is perfect. The kids love the three bed loft above the living room.

    So, yesterday morning, I convinced everyone that we had to visit the Great Salt Lake. I needed to see if I can float. I don't normally float. Elizabeth does not normally float. Matthew does not normally float. Apparently, everyone can float in the Great Salt Lake. From reviews, they say the best place to view and swim in the salt lake is from Antelope Island. It is about 30 minutes outside of the city, north. What a strange place to be. We drove on a road that cuts through the crystallized dried up salt beds. The lake used to come all the way up to the edge of the mountain range covering the city. The salt in the lake is nine times that of the ocean. Surprisingly there are lots of birds everywhere but there are also a lot of tiny flies. They don't bite. The Seagulls would run across the sand with their mouths open disturbing the flies on the sand and eating them as they fled his open mouth. Elizabeth found this great sport running around disturbing the flies. (Not eating them.)

    After visiting the visitor center, we made our way to the beach area. Once at the beach, you literally had to walk a 1/2 mile to the waters edge. First, there is soft beach sand, then a more packed down dry crunchier sand. The water is surprisingly clear and inviting, though only a few people are actually in it which makes it feel a little eerie. You'd expect such a place to have people enjoying a beach day but most of the people wandered quietly. Off in the distance, you could see a few heads bobbing up and down, another 100 feet out. You have to go out pretty far to get deep enough to float. The water was warmer than I thought it would be. We were warned by squeamish reviewers that the water is filled with brine shrimp. You could see them if you looked closely. They are tiny. Nothing matches the red tide that Paul and the kids swam in in Rhode Island. They were covered in red algae from head to toe and in the pockets of their suits. Disgusting and smelly. This was nothing like that. In certain areas of viewing the Great Salt Lake, you will smell a dead fishy odor but nothing like the leaked bone broth in our car on this trip. It smells like a dead mouse. (I use the bone broth as part of my diet.) Ooops sorry.

    We waded out deep enough to float. Mind you, I don't like to swim in lakes, oceans and other bodies of water. I needed to do this and check it off my bucket list. The Dead Sea is next. Matthew went first. HE FLOATS! Ben went next. Then me. I FLOAT! Even with my head up. I didn't want to put my head in the salt water. ELIZABETH FLOATS! IF you taste it, it tastes like the salt water you gargle with for a sore throat if you over saturate the glass of water. It makes you want to spit it out. Gross. This time Paul chose not to participate in the float experiment. Though, he did wade in with us. On the walk back to the showers, the salt started to crystallize on our skin. The hairy you are, the more the salt crystallized on the hairs. Matthew has fine little white hairs all over him and the salt was visible on them. It was a neat experience. I don't know if the flies and shrimp are worse at times but they were not an issue for us at all. They don't bite either.

    After going to a couple of Costcos for meals for our next stop that is a condo (and I was in search of this great gluten free bread we found here that they don't have back home), we headed for Park City which is 30 minutes east of Salt Lake. Our car has been running hard in the mountains making us very nervous. We had Onstar run a diagnostic and they see nothing wrong. It is sluggish up the hills. We were told to take this scenic route out of Park City but we are too nervous to add more stress on the car. The mountains are rough. We will see.

    We love the little condo we are in just on the outskirts of town. Last night, we had a home cooked meal and played a game of "The Office", the one the kids made. Today, we will go into Park City and explore. We just finished breakfast. I'll let you know what we do today later. Signing out from Park City, Utah
