West Wendover

In spite of many miles of road repair, we have landed in West Wendover. Our room is nice and Lucy is putting the flat screen TV to the test. There is no chance of me remaining ignorant of current events....:)
We ran into some snow flurries, a little rain but nothing serious. You know how it is...if you carry an umbrella it won't rain and if you go out and buy new chains, it won't snow. I'm not complaining!
Hwy 80 runs through some pretty desolate landscape. It boggles me to see this desert dotted with small clusters of homes out in the middle of nowhere. Just getting to a grocery store or gas station would be a major ordeal, not to mention getting emergency medical care. Those folks must be pioneers at heart.
West Wendover looks like a typical casino town, lots of bright lights, gas stations, fast food places and motels. We won't be staying long.
Tomorrow, Salt Lake City. Stay tuned!

Oh cool, I didn't even know you guys were doing this since I have been sort of avoiding retreat posts (so I don't get sad) but I'm SO thrilled for you, this is something on my bucket list big time! Look forward to living vicariously through you!

Me, too. I woke up looking forward to learning where in the world are LuDi? Great descriptions. Glad about the lack of snow.

I'm chuckling over the part about Lucy and the flat screen and Diane not being ignorant of current events!

Julia said...

What a wonderful idea! And thanks for letting us share vicariously in your travels...looking forward to your adventures!

Loving your photos and just amazed you didn't get stuck somewhere before Wendover. I saw those heavy snow clouds you had to pass through from down here. Not sure why when I refreshed your first post I continued to get the first post only.

Thanks for the link on the forum LuDi...keep us posted on this wonderful adventure of yours.
