Lake Mead, NV

We were exploring Lake Mead from Bolder Boulevard and park frontage roads.

We stopped at a rest area near a large boat ramp and there wasnt a single rig in the parking lot, boat or otherwise.

Laughlin, NV

Heres a picture of the Colorado River and the little gambling town of Laughlin, NV. The picture was taken from Bull Head City, AZ just before crossing the bridge into NV.

Nice photos, Tom...

We try to set up camp on Lake Huron just north of Alpena every year for a couple days. If it's a full moon while we're there, the moon rising over the lake is always "spectacular".... Even more so, if there's 4-6 foot waves on the lake.

John, Because of the way East Tawas sits, we can watch the sun rise and set overthe bay.. Confused me until the DW explained it to me a million times, something like North is actually east......LOL

Tom,

We've lived in this house for almost 12 years now. The front door opens "directly north" and when standing on the front porch, looking out, into the yard, you're facing "due north".... That means (at least to me) that my right side is east and my left side is west. That ONLY leave my butt to be facing south... My DW (bless her heart) has NEVER figured that out. We'll be sitting on the porch, watching birds in the bird bath and she'll make a comment about something "in Gaylord" and point in any direction except west, or she'll talk about the sun rising tomorrow, and point any direction except east.....

I gave up trying to teach her to look at moss on the trees if she's lost in the woods. It's easier to just tie a rope around her waist when we go for walks in the forest than it is to try to find her if she "heads west"....

Yep, she also "almost always" turns the wrong direction to get to the truck when we walk out of WalMart......

Some (many) people designate the front passenger seat as the "navigator"... If I did that, I'd be in New York rather than North Dakota on our trip to the Bad Lands and Yellowstone.....

But, she only packs 4 pairs of shoes for a trip, so she's a "keeper" for sure !!!!

My DW is OK with the compass rose but lousy at map reading. On the first trip together she looked at the map and said "Let's go to XYZ it's just a little ways off the route." I made the turn and after about 1/2 hr I pulled over and looked at the map. I said I thought this was close? Her reply ...."it's only about an inch away on this map". She was looking at a map of the "Eastern United States" and I politely (I'm not STUPID) said honey, look at the scale on the bottom of the map one inch = 100 miles.

She packs for a weekend like the first class passengers did on the Titanic. But in twenty days we'll celebrate our 41st. wedding anniversary so I guess I'll try to hold on for the duration.
