Yep, we're back in Salt Lake City again. This is our third time in this RV park. We left Moab Saturday at our usual time of 10:00 and made the five hour drive to Salt Lake City. We drove up Hwy 6 because it was a lot shorter route than we did last summer. We had been told that this drive was beautiful and also to be careful because there are a lot of deer hit by cars on this hwy. Well, the drive wasn't exactly beautiful except at Soldier Summit which is 7500 feet and was still covered in snow. Gorgeous! And as is usual with our wildlife sightings we didn't see one single deer. LOL.
We've seen windmills all over the U.S.
We arrived in Salt Lake City at about 4:00 after stopping once for lunch and fuel. Todd & Michele came over with Ashton and Reilly a little while later with dinner! What a nice treat. They stopped at Five Guys for burgers and fries. Michele had told me they were to die for and Rod thought they were just okay but I thought they were pretty darned good. I just LOVE a good burger.
We were informed yesterday that the electricity would be turned off between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm on Wed, Thur and Fri. Three days with no electric all day!! No compensation, no apology, nothing. I understand they're having a lot of problems with electric here but it's unacceptable to just turn it off for 3 days. We have generators but have never used them to power our rig. They just ride along with us in the tool box in the back of truck. Well, today was the day to bring them out. We found out we sure can't run a bunch of stuff with them. After a few times of having them shut off we realized we needed to unplug everything that wasn't being used. Every time I tried to run the A/C it shut off the generators. So, we decided to just leave for the day and headed down to Thanksgiving Point where there is a dinosaur museum. Rod LOVES those things!
He reads every single thing!

We've decided after thinking about it for a month or so that we're not going to Alaska this summer. We're really disappointed about it but some other things are just too important right now. Rod's 88 year old mom has experienced some health issues recently and then broke her hip on Easter Sunday. She has been living alone in her house and realizes she can't do that anymore. Rod has been in constant contact with her and his sister Sue. We'll be going up to Port Angeles this summer to help get her house ready to sell and she'll be going into an assisted living facility after she rehabs from the hip surgery. We're all praying for a speedy recovery and getting her back on track.
We're still coming to see you John & Brenda!!
