Memphis, Tennesee

We technically stayed in Arkansas… because there’s a great RV park right along the Mississippi river in West Memphis. We did go out in Memphis twice, I think this was the first time we had been to a city that neither of us had been to before. It was a better choice than Branson…

Texas, Round 2

When we got back into Texas it was like a different world from when we left. They had been getting rain about 4 times a week for 3 months and everything was so green. What was dusty western scrub brush was lush grassland. It was an AMAZING sight. It really was a stark difference from the extreme drought in southern California. It set the scene for a great visit in Texas

Flagstaff, Arizona

It felt like we had been in Vegas long enough. So we planned out our route home on Roadtrippers.com. Laurel wanted to go through Texas again to see her grandparents and friends in Dallas so we took the southern route again. If we hadn’t had to go that way we probably would have gone north through Colorado. Our first stop on this was just a couple of hours outside Las Vegas, Flagstaff Arizona. It’s another ‘college town’ home to Northern Arizona University. It has a really fun downtown area with great little shops and restaurants. My phone went dead one day, so there aren’t as many pictures as there should be.

Las Vegas

Finally out of California! If you don’t count Guatemala and Mexico, We had spent almost 6 months in California. But the state is pretty huge and the cities are very different. But now it was time to visit Nadine and Daryl and my cousin John in the city of Sin. But Laurel had to fly back to LA for a conference and she decided to also fly back to Virginia to visit her 100 year old grandmother. So that left me alone in Vegas for a lot of the time. John was still working nights at a restaurant, so our schedules didn’t overlap much. So I spent most of the time exploring by myself. I played a lot of disc golf, hiked, rode my new bike around, ate ceviche, hung out at the pool, and spent almost zero time gambling.

Los Angeles, California

I’m breaking up the format of these posts a little, when we were staying in one place for a couple weeks at a time it kind of made sense to have them all in one post. But since we stayed in the LA area for a while and every city is a little bit different I’m going to split them into different sections. Obviously I’m not going to give every area a total review, but we tried to hit some major areas around town. Los Angeles is a huge area, it’s really hard to imagine how spead out but still interconnected it is without spending some time here. Like DC, you don’t drive at certain times of day. Since my commute was only from the bed to the front seat, I really didn’t get a view of the famous LA traffic. But that did allow us to explore at different times. Even with all we did, there is still more to see, we will be back.
