Done Wandering (For Awhile Anyway)

We arrived back in Redmond late Thursday after spending the past 5 months in the warmer climates of Arizona. We did take a little detour on the way home to Pahrump, Nevada. We had heard from several of our "motorhome buddies" about this park called Terribles Lakeside RV Resort and wanted to take a looksee. What a great surprise that turned out to be. A nice, lush 35 acre resort with a 7 acre lake stocked with fish. Fishing is free, but it's all catch and release. We spent a day listening to the ducks and geese and generally relaxing before the long journey north. The next day, we drove to Reno and spent the night and then drove back to Redmond the following day. The coach is pretty much unloaded now, but the inside is not cleaned out. Several pictures of the resort will be posted later, after I find the camera.

We will be home for the next several weeks before the coach starts wandering around again. Our first rally with the FMCA Rim Rock Roamers will be on the 21st of May, but we will head out early and spend 4 or 5 days at the beach before the rest of the group shows up.

Easter Pageant

The LDS church in Mesa puts on a non-denominational Easter Pageant every year. They set up 10,000 folding chairs on the Temple grounds. The stage takes 1 month to erect and is 4 stories tall. There are over 450 cast members that start rehearsing 4 nights per week a month before Easter The program itself was absolutely AWESOME.
