Stuck in Bullhead City

Thursday, January 29, 2015

After we paid the bill at the mechanic I thought that our plans were shot. We had hoped to get a lot of traveling and writing done with that money. I was thinking we would spend some time in Vegas, see SoCal, and tour the Grand Canyon. Now we don't have enough gas to get to any of those places. I have to admit I was kind of depressed. 

When we first got to Bullhead I wanted to sit in the RV and feel sorry for myself. For the first few days I did. Things were not going the way I had planed and I felt like having a pity party. We did not even have the warm weather I was looking forward to.

It snowed on us here. Out of all the locals we talked to none of them remembered it snowing here before. We were snowed on from Kansas to New Mexico and now it seemed we brought the snow to Bullhead city.

The snow did not last for long though and soon after the snow melted so did my doldrums. You do not have to have a bunch of money to have fun here. We are in a beautiful park full of friendly people. We would surely find a way to have fun.

I had really wanted to rent a car so we can see the sights around town. Luckily this place has good bus system. The town is not that big and the bus can get us around to shopping and dinning. We can even make it to the casino across the river if we feel up to a little gambling, via the bus and a quick ferry. If the bus cannot get us there they have a cab company that's not too expensive and with the town being so small we can get most anywhere for about 10 bucks.

Exploring the casinos with an awesome
couple we met at the RV park!
The park we are at has a lot going on too, so we do not have to go out to find fun. The office has a library with books from all genres. The clubhouse has different activities almost every day from arts and crafts to poker night. When it gets too hot outside we can hit the pool. If you just want to relax the hot tub might be more up your ally. If you have a hard time talking with strangers Saturday morning free coffee and donuts is a great way to meet people.

There are a few places I would like to explore and some mountains I would like to hike. I hear tell that there is a place with old Native American petroglyphs.  We are planing a day at the river which we can see from our RV.

I had not planed to stay any one place for an extended period of time but if you had to be somewhere I can think of much worse places then Bullhead City.The weather here is gorgeous, our daily temps hover between 65 and 70 degrees. I would also guess that between the city of Laughlin Nevada and Bullheady City there are thousands of RV'ers here at this time of year. This seems like the place to be
if you are in an RV.

We made it here in one piece and obviously we were meant to spend some time here! We plan to make the best of it!
