We traveled from The Grand Canyon to Henderson, NV, crossing the dessert and stopping along the way to see th magnificent Hoover Dam. It was 104 degrees near the dam, but we got out of the car and hiked up the stairs to the bridge which provides an overlook. It is hard to imagine the labor it took to construct the dam in such a rugged landscape and punishing climate.... read more

The big day for my new journey has finally arrived and as the song goes "my bags are backed and I'm ready to go". In a couple of hours I will head to the airport where I will join my good friends Harlan and Karen Sager to catch our flight to Lisbon, Portugal. Upon arrival in Lisbon we will head to the apartment we have rented to leave our bags and then head out to enjoy 3 1/2 days of sightseeing before we start our 440 mile El Camino walk from Lisbon to Santiago, Spain on August 24th. This El Camino walk is definitely going to be a lot different than the one I did a couple of years ago -- to start with I will have friends walking with me for the whole 440 miles ... read more

Today we had a four hour drive from Williams, AZ to Las Vegas, NV. Our Garmin RV GPS took us an unexpected route from highway 40 to 68 to163 to 95. This route took us right past Lake Mead which looked very beautiful and than through a lot of driving on 6% grade roads which was not the most fun with the travel trailer, but not too bad. I suppose it was a good practice for the mountain driving to come. We decided to stay at Duck Creek RV Resort ($20/night with passport) until after the Holiday, checking out on July 5th. The resort is much like a large parking lot, but does offer Wi-Fi, pool, hot tub, DVD rental and is close to everything but still in a safe area. On the 4th they had ... read more

The idea for this update came today as I revisited some of the comments we received from fellow travelblog writers who have followed our trip on the Camino Frances August to October 2015. When we returned to our home town we provided the interim pastor at our church with a scallop shell as a token of our appreciation for his blessing for our journey. He then took the opportunity to say, "You know, I have been thinking! The period of lent is really like a pilgrimage. How would you like to spend 10 or 15 minutes each of five Wednesday evenings recounting your spiritual journey on El Camino de Santiago de Compostela?" So we put together five different segments: (1) Preparation and Beginning, (2) Tired but Undaunted we continue, (3) This is not what we thought ... read more

Day 11 Time for hotel number 6! Check out of our hotel and get back in the car and drive back to Nevada. Tonight we will spend the night in Henderson just outside Las Vegas. Another lengthy drive, around 230miles. We stop at Kingsman on our way back and have another Starbucks and bite to eat. Weather picks up and gets warmer again as we approach the state line. We stay in the Hilton Garden Inn. Great hotel but small car park and we steal the last space. We change quickly and drive to the South Premium outlets as we were advised they are better than the North. Great shops on offer - Michael Kors, Oakley, Nike, sunglasses, Guess and Ralph Lauren. Lots to choose from and we spend the evening there. We head back into ... read more
