September...where did it go?




Sorry to have not blogged for a while but Teddy and I havent been doing anything particularly interesting beyond enjoying our stay here at Nevada Treasure RV Resort in Pahrump, NV.Our days have been filled with going to the fitness center every morning (well every morning for Teddy and most mornings for me) and relaxing by the pools in the afternoons, and reading books on our Kindles. It has been very hot here during the month of September with daytime highs often reaching 100 degrees however a quick dip in one of the pools soon cools you off and quite truthfully it just doesn't seem that hot. At night the temperature quickly cools down to the mid sixties by morning.
A couple of times we also tried our hands at bowling. One of the amenities that the resort offers is a six lane bowling alley so we thought we would give it a try.




Neither of us had bowled for over 20 years and it sure showed. On our first game I got 96 and Teddy got 84.  Oh well....

Here Teddy attempts to pick up a spare.








And look at the grim determination on my face as I attempt to stare down the pins.









It became apparent that we weren't going to be invited to join any bowling teams in the near future but we had fun.  :-)

Nevada Treasure RV Resort

We are in Pahrump, Nevada at the Nevada Treasure RV Resort. This is one of the nicest RV parks that we have ever stayed at. It was originally built as a class A motorhome park with individual sites to be sold to RV owners, however the recession forced it into a change of philosophy. So now fifth wheels are not only encouraged but are in the majority. They are still marketing the individual sites but we like the freedom of not being tied to one spot.

It is a marvelous park with a fully equipped health club/fitness center. They sell memberships to local area residents but are free to RV residents.




The fitness center has a large workout room with all of the usual machines and individual men and womens locker rooms each with a steam room, sauna, massage room and whirlpool.



There is an outside pool area with three pools, a colder waterfall pool, a large intermediate temperature pool and a smaller whirlpool. Other amenities include a bowling alley, a restaurant, a large banquet room with a stage and a game room with pool tables. We are also provided with a daily newspaper and individual locked mailboxes.
The landscaping is gorgeous with many tropical plantings and palm trees. We truly love the place and would stay here longer but are told that it gets quite cold in the winter frequently dipping into the 30s.


So...
come November we still plan on continuing on to Lake Havasu, Arizona, and then in January plan on moving further south to Florence, AZ. However if things go as planned we expect to come back here in March or April before heading back east to "The Farm" for the summer.
