4,700 miles and we are back at Treasure Lake :)

What a trip! What a blast! Have to say though that by the end of it we were all glad to be home here at Treasure Lake. It really didn’t help that the three of the last four days of traveling were LONG. Why? Well, Thursday, upon leaving Bryce we took Route 12 across Utah. Route 12 is the scenic route and having read in an RV magazine that it was big rig friendly I figured this would be a nice drive.... read more

The “reveal” will happen on Day 3 as the person we were surprising arrived that day having no clue we would also be there. Last... read more

Big Rig Accessibility – Dog parks and more

As I have shared in the past our new rig is approximately 60′ total in length (truck and fifth wheel together). That makes for some interesting parking at times and certainly does not allow us access to all gas/diesel stations. SO as we take this trip I am going to share some of the great places we find along the way. Not every one as that would get boring but the ones that are extra ordinary and... read more
