ON TO OVERTON, NEVADA

With still lots of time before we had to even think about heading North, we had hoped to spend more time at Telephone Cove.  But Joe woke up to this…

The water had risen quite a bit and Joe feared his jacks would sink and he wouldn’t be able to get out of there.  Tara comes over to my spot to tell me the situation and a quick pack up had to be done and we were off.

I was soooo disappointed because I definitely could have spent another few days there.  I was comfortable enough by then to have stayed there on my own.  BUT I was NOT comfortable enough to tackle the 5 Miles of UPHILL to get out of there with the rig and tow.

So I followed Joe UP the hill in the rig and Tara followed me in Ms. Daisy.  Once we got the car hooked up we parted ways with hugs and “See ya in Harrison !”  HEY, haven’t we done this before !!??  LOL

They wanted to spend some time in Vegas and I decided to head to Overton, NV with a brief stop along the way…

Hey !  I had to get my fix ya know !!

I like stopping in Overton.  It’s very quiet there and good for a few days.  There’s absolutely NOTHING to do there and the only riding is through Valley of Fire – which I’ve done – plus they charge you $10 every time you go through there.  So I didn’t even bother to take the bike out.

I wanted to enjoy the warm weather for as long as I could so Overton is a great stop for a few days or a week.  I don’t think I’d want to spend much more time there though.

I spent a couple of quiet, blissful days boondocking and just generally puttering in the rig.

One afternoon I got up from a wee nap and glanced out the window.  What I saw made my eyes open wide and my jaw drop !!!

Guess who I saw pulling in ??  None other than Joe & Tara !!  I, of course, didn’t know they were even in the area and they, of course, didn’t know I was there.

I can’t seem to get rid of those guys !  I think they are STALKING me !!  LOL

Next up, more 4WD’ing around Overton.

  1. That's pretty scarey, waking up to water that close to the rig! Wow! Can you imagine getting stuck THERE? And pretty funny, to wake up from a nap and see them coming in. You guys are definitely on the same wavelength. :)
