Place 85: Day 1: Virgin, UT 🇺🇸 – Campervaning In Utah!

Leaving Vegas

We were up to get checked out and have some breakfast.

We checked out via mobile and queued up to get our bags in storage.

Once we got our bags checked, we headed over to McDonald’s for a quick easy breakfast and a sit down.

Once we finished our food, we went to the check in counter to ask a few questions we had and by the time that was done, we wanted to go and grab a taco from the place we had visited list time in Vegas.

We took Tom to the Mexican place and each had a carnitas taco, which is delicious pork and vegetables, which was perfect to tide us over.

That took us to the perfect time to go and grab our bags and head off.

We got them and jumped in a Lyft up to a house where we were pickup up a campervan.

Our Campervan

The couple we got the camper from were a lovely older French couple that rent out a few campervans.

We had a tour of it, they told us how to use different things and that was pretty much that.

It’s a perfect size for the 3 of us, too.

We got in it and hit the road, heading to rent a bike from Tom.

Bike Rental

We got to a bike rental place but it seemed that there isn’t actually a shop there. We called them and they said that there is no shop and they only deliver to hotels, so we canned that idea.

We found another place that was en route, so we stopped off there instead.

Tom got a bike for a good price which was nice and easy and we went to grab coffees for the journey.

To Utah!

We set off and up to Utah Tom drove.We had an uneventful drive really, just drove through Nevada, Arizona and finally into Utah.

We stopped off at Walmart once we got into Hurricane, Utah and got a few supplies for our 3 day campervan stay.

We drove the rest of the way, figuring out where to go and then driving down into the gravel roads and finally out into the campsite.

We were greeted and showed our spot, where we setup and got ready to hunker down.

We got a bit of food in us, just some frozen pasta stuff we bought, and then relaxed for a bit before we went to sleep, as we have to be up relatively early tomorrow.

It’s actually quite warm at the moment inside our camper, so that’s a win!


This Time Last Year!

Place 72 – Day 176: Vancouver, BC – Flying Out, Again!

Curtis’ Day

Curtis was a bit delayed this morning before work as he was packing a few last things for our trip.

He left about 10 minutes later than usual, but still got to work on time, but not when he wanted to!

Curtis had a busy day, but not as busy as it has been.

He had a few more project things to do whilst he wasn’t doing anything else, but mostly he was picking up some tickets, discussing policies and procedures with his team and generally just ‘getting stuff done’.

Curtis had to tie a few things up before he left for a week, so he did that at the end of the day and then made the mistake of getting engrossed in something right before he was meant to leave!

Kim’s Day

When Kim got in this morning she was greeted by a pile of boxes and other cardboard that hadn’t been collected over night.

She cleaned this up a little and then took a couple of people to get their passes.

After this Kim made up some business cards and had them ready to send out to the printers.

She was then fed up of looking at the pile of boxes so she changed it and turned them into a Halloween feature!

She was then reminded that we have run out of creme, this was such a surprise as Kim ordered more on top of her extra to be safe!

She then started investigating the missing receipts and invoices from the statements.

Kim then took a quick lunch where she had a sandwich from the catering and that was delicious! As part of her lunch Kim popped to Lush to get some travel friendly stuff.

She then spent a little more time finding missing receipts and contacting hotels and travel agents to make sure they have everything.

Kim then finalised parts of the holiday parties and got the invites sent out for all 3 parties!

To Vegas We Go!

We each took our respective train from work to get back home and grabbed all of our bags.

We left the apartment shortly after and walked back to the train station, to get on the train to the airport.

We got to the airport, checked a bag which we don’t normally do, but we had to check it to bring a few certain things out.

We got that done very fast as there was no queue and then went right through to security, where there was still no queue!

Immigration was very fast and smooth, and then we just had to wait.

We were hungry, so we went to Burger King right next to our gate. We, apparently, still don’t really like Burger King.

We boarded the plane and took our 2.5 hour flight down to Las Vegas!

We got a ride share to our hotel from the airport and checked in.

We met up with Tom, Kim’s dad, as we are here to see him! He has a 25 hour cycle race over the weekend in Utah, so we are going with him and though we should make a holiday of it and go to Vegas too!

We chatted for a bit and then headed to our rooms to get some sleep. We are staying in Luxor which is pretty awesome!
