    Hi Donna,

    It really was educational for all of us, history, geography, geology, politics and local custom and practice which we noted changed as we moved from state to state.

    Unfortunately,...

    Hi Dave,

    I'm looking forward to when my boys are a bit older and we don't have to a) pay for them and b) go in expensive school holiday periods. Then there'll be no stopping us!

    I think you're...
  3. Sticky: That's it!

    So that was that and what a trip it had been.

    The highlights? Definitely Zion, the campground was the best and our second day doing both Angels Landing and The Narrows was amazing. Closely...
  4. Sticky: Days 14- 20 – Pajero Dunes

    Having had a busy 2 weeks we thought a relaxing few day on the cost was called for so we booked an apartment in a small complex on the beach at Pajaro Dunes. Pajaro Dunes is on the beach west of...
  5. Sticky: I booked the 2nd ferry of the day (couldn't book...

    I booked the 2nd ferry of the day (couldn't book the first) so thought it wouldn't be too bad! Imagine what it would have been like later in the day! Good tour though.
  6. Sticky: Days 11-13 – San Francisco

    I won’t write much about this next 2 parts of our trip but as it’s still a road trip of sorts, I’ll comment on some highlights.

    The drive down from Upper Pines into Dublin, San Francisco is one of...

    Wow! That was lucky, it would have been really disappointing to miss it. You’re right, I can’t imagine how he would have done it without the handrails.
  8. Sticky: Thanks Mark, I did get the impression that the...

    Thanks Mark, I did get the impression that the rangers were as worn down by the constant stream of people as we were.
  9. Sticky: Day 10 - Yosemite

    We had decided to do the John Muir Trail and Mist Trail to Vernel Falls. Unfortunately, so had everyone else. However the fact that the hike was so busy didn’t detract from our enjoyment seeing the...
  10. Sticky: Day 9 – Into Yosemite

    The prize for spending all day on the road yesterday was having a full day to cross the Tioga Pass into Yosemite……..and we needed it.

    To us this was day 9 of our trip but to everyone else in...
  11. Sticky: Certainly was, I’m just glad I didn’t do it, I’d...

    Certainly was, I’m just glad I didn’t do it, I’d still be up there!
  12. Sticky: Day 8 – Road trip to June Lake

    We had decided that we wanted to get as far as possible on this day towards Yosemite to maximise the time we had available there, so we set off on a 10 hour drive to June Lake.

    Despite enjoying...
  13. Sticky: Day 7b – Zion: The Narrows

    We all headed back to the RV for lunch and a cool down in the Virgin River, right by the RV!

    Over lunch we decided that we...
  14. Sticky: Day 7a – Zion: Angels Landing

    So over our wine last night we decided that we would get up early and head off to the Narrows. Plan sorted when we went to bed, but the next morning I’d had second thoughts. Angels Landing would...
  15. Sticky: Day 6 - Zion

    We had 2 full days available to us so spent the first one familiarising ourselves with the area, the main canyon and the shuttle. The crowds we had been warned about were there and there was a long...
  16. Sticky: Day 5b – On to Zion

    That was Antelope and now we set off for Zion. One of the great things about driving around this part of the world is that the fabulous scenery is always changing making all the drives interesting. ...
  17. Sticky: Day 5a – Canyon X

    A leisurely start to the day as we only had to go about 30 minutes and didn’t need to be there until 9:25.

    Canyon X is the third canyon in the Antelope 'group' of slot canyons. Whilst doing...
  18. Sticky: Day 4b – On to Page and Antelope Canyon

    We had allowed plenty of time to get to Page and even allowing for our numerous stops, we were due to arrive about 1.5 hours before the tour so time for some lunch. About an hour outside Page the...
  19. Sticky: Day 4a – Leaving the Grand Canyon

    We had arranged a kayak trip of Antelope Canyon for 1:00 so we headed out of Trailer Village reasonably early and headed towards Page.

    The trip along Desert View Drive is spectacular and in my...
  20. Sticky: Day 3 – Willow Beach / The Grand Canyon

    We woke to find that now it was light we could see this was a beautiful campsite, overlooking the river with very flat pitches and all the connections you need. The shower block had individual...
  21. Sticky: Day 2 - Las Vegas / Willow beach

    We had an El Monte C28 on order but they couldn’t make it available to us until after 15:00 so we had to waste a large part of the day but the various pools at the Venetian made that easier!

    4875...
  22. Sticky: Day 1 - Las Vegas

    We landed in Vegas from the U.K. and spent a single night only because you can’t take possession of the Rv the same day as you land. Given how tired I was, that’s a pretty sensible rule, even if it...
  23. Sticky: First ever RV trip – Vegas, Grand Canyon, Antelope, Zion, Yosemite and San Francisco

    This is our first trip in an RV so we had only a little idea of what to expect. We are a family of four, me, my wife Liv and my two boys Ben (17) and Dan (13). I’m not really a camper to be honest...
