Laughlin Trip


Rust On The Tub

We just got back from a work trip to Bullhead City/Laughlin. Harrahs was nice enough to comp our room (all those trips to the Ak-Chin Harrahs to play bingo with Mom are paying off) so we were looking forward to the down time and doing some gambling.

Unfortunately, while the . . . → Read More: Laughlin Trip

Vegas Work Trip

Janet had a work seminar in Las Vegas this week, so we were able to get a couple of nights comp’ed by Harrahs.  The seminar itself was part of the National NCRA Convention there and was being held at Bally’s. The Monorail was very convenient getting back and forth between the two locations.

Winslow — La Posada

Our first stop on the way to Durango was Winslow at the historic La Posada Hotel which was built for the Santa Fe Railway.  The architecture and artwork are very interesting.  The photos of the many famous people who have stayed at this hotel line the hallway.

La Posada’s Turquoise Room is a must-do restaurant.  . . . → Read More: Winslow — La Posada

James Ranch — Local Food

James Ranch is in close proximity to Haviland Lake where we camped.  The James Ranch farm stand is only open on Saturdays this time of year, but we learned that Nature’s Oasis Natural Foods Market in Durango sells local food items from James Ranch and other farms.   It was a great store to stock up . . . → Read More: James Ranch — Local Food
