After saying good bye twice, first to my new friends at the Arizona Good Sam Samboree, and then again to my friends at the Gypsy Journal Rally, I headed for the KOFA SKP Park in Yuma for a couple of days of down time before I headed north to Parker and on to Pahrump. In Pahrump Nevada, at the Nevada Treasure RV Resort, http://nevadatreasurervresort.com/, I conducted two more seminars for the Nevada Good Sam Samboree and the Regional WIT Rally ( Winnebago). During both rallies I met many more interesting people. Ollie Hill, from Laramie, Wyoming, attended my seminar. Visit his website, www.highcountryhorse.net. He has developed a kid’s game called, KID’S ARENA HORSE PLAY, as well as authoring many books on back packing and outfitting. Through the sales of his publications he raises money for 4-H projects.
Daniel Holstein of the Las Vegas Police Department And the son of one of the WIT attendees, spoke to us about his experience consulting for the CSI of Las Vegas television series. Not only did I have the privilege to meet Daniel, but also obtain his permission to e-mail him parts of my manuscript for his review.
Between these two rallies I enjoyed ten days of down time at the Elks Lodge in Pahrump. The lodge was active and hospitable and cooked a great Lasagna dinner. I spent my days writing with the spectacular view of the desert’s landscape filling every window of my RV. I walked in the desert when I needed a break from writing. I could have stayed for months in the solitude but had to spend a couple nights at the Pair-A-Dice SKP Park in order to catch up on my laundry.
I regretted my last day in Pahrump but I was also anxious to go home. Pahrump is a wonderful town with wonderful people. If you ever come through here go to Mom’s Diner, less than a mile from the Elks Lodge. The small restaurant has great food and friendly patrons who will invite you to share their table when it’s crowded, which is most of the time.
My next adventure will be reconnecting with my friends, neighbors and employees and my customers back in Sun City, Ca. at The Canine Beauty Salon…..and finishing my book, GOING HOME WITH A CAT AND A GHOST that I hope to have available late summer or early fall.
