|See what we were doing last year|
|May 21, 2012|
Our trip from Palm Springs to Las Vegas was great
we took the 95 what a
great road, 2 lane hwy, no traffic and no bumps smooth. After
Vegas where Mike & I did play Texas Holdem tournaments but never got
to the final tables. We then proceeded to Reno, we stayed on
the 95 stopping in Fallon so Mike could visit his Uncle, the night
before we stayed at an empty lot next to a casino in Tonopah, they
allow truckers and RV's to spend the night, it was cold and windy,
Mike had to get the jacket out and as of today 05/21 we still have
jackets on. Mike had a nice visit with his uncle, we then left
that afternoon for Reno, we stayed on the 95.
We stayed at the Sparks Marina and RV park, we
had stayed there the last time we were in Reno it is a great park,
fees run around $39 a night, we stayed 4 nights. Russ and Jody
lived close by, we called them and they came by and we all went to
the Peppermill for a Texas Holdem game,
While walking around Reno came across the Blarney Stone rubbed it for luck, guess it worked came out ahead at the Peppermill.
On to 7 Feathers RV park and Casino, we spent 4 days at the park going to the casino and playing Texas Holdem every day, 2-4 limit, they have rewards if you get AAA-88 you get $50 I had it the first night and was ahead until I went on the floor to play slots. We love this park it is gorgeous, it's a great stop over going north.
We are now in Elma, at Travel Inn KM Resort, Pat and Mel had already arrived, it was so good to see them, we have had lots of fun, they were suppose to stay till today the 21st, but they got a call that there son's father-in-law who was diving with their son, somehow got tangled up below and drowned, they left to be with their family. We had intended to go to their place on the 29 for 4 days before heading to B.C. we will see in a couple of days if they are up to having us. They are great friends and lots of fun to be around. Our prays are with them and their family.
We still have jackets on, raining till Thrusday they say, we will see. I just hope it will stop long enough for us to enjoy B.C. am getting ants in my feet to be on the road to a new destination. Until I take new photos and have another update hope all are where they are wanting to be for the summer. Take care and stay dry and cool. Love Carol

We are now in TT in Las Vegas, is warm windy but staying inside with
the AC's on makes it comfortable. Will be here till May 7th
then head north.
Went and found the Poker Stuff store and ended up spending $134. for the 8 new very large buttons ( yes folks we got the big ones), we added 150 $10 chips and 25 $5000 chips, also had to purchase 2 new cases (this way I may even be able to carry the chips),as the one we had was heavy & gave out at the last tournament & was very heavy to carry, as Mike was carry it to the car the top almost came off and we would have still been in the parking lot picking up the chips if it had. I am planning on putting a donation can for people to donate to re-coup our expenses. Mike says that he hopes since we have been paying for everything since we started. I know our poker buddies will not mind helping to cover the expenses.
Prior to leaving we had our final Texas Holdem Tournaments and Pizza party. It turned out to be a blast, everyone had so much fun we have been told it is now a tradition and we need to make sure we come back to hold the Sunday Tournaments and party. Here are a few photos I know I probably missed some of you who play with us, and will try and get your photo next year. (Last year I cooked Chimm's glad to have done it, but a pizza party is way too much fun.
Our season is over but we will keep in touch, we love all of these people just like family, because they are our family of TT friends and we will probably see them on the road. If not we will see them next season, YES guys Mike has agreed on coming back to put on our Sunday's, he keeps saying unless plan b comes into effect. Don't worry I love to play so much and enjoy all of you I will make sure we come back for one more season. After all it has been now 4 years we have been doing it what else do we have to do!!
While we were playing the sky turned gray and a beautiful rainbow appeared
Could not have happened on a better day, this is proof that gold at the end of the rainbow is in Palm Springs TT, all of our friends are a pot of gold!
