Labor Day 2006
Follow the journey
as Karen and I take the Motor Home and Waverunners to Lake Powell
via Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. It's over 1900 miles round trip.
And now a word from our sponsors as we fill up. Motor home holds 80 gals / 10 miles per gal
Well we haven't even made Lake Powell yet, but here is what as happened so far.Day 1: Leaving San Jose
We finally make it 450 miles and end up at the Calico Ghost Town KOA. Nice place.
Day 2: Calico to Las Vegas
Day 3: Las Vegas
The motor home up on the rack by day. Tony the shop owner
For the next two days we will be loving the water at Lake Mead. Here we are at the launch ramp.Day 4 & 5: Lake Mead on the water
In front of the dam. We found this cove. The water was so clear
Another side of the lake. Now this is the vacation I was looking for.
Day 6: I hope tomorrow I report that we made it to Lake Powell.
We made it!
Good News: Finally we get to
Lake Powell. I am sure some of you were wondering what happened.
Bad News: Are you kidding, we don't need any more bad news.
Map of Lake Powell. We will camp near Wahweap Marina
A view out the front of the motor home. Bob and Sheri ready for a ride
Talk about right on
the water. Oh I think it's time to replace that trailer box.
It has damaged more bumpers. Bad design... See the new one below.

The view from the marina. All the narrow passes we went into
Here are some pictures. This place is awesome. Words can't describe what I am seeing.

Oh ya. Remember the trailer damage? Look at it now...
