Spectacular Dantes View

Image
It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around. It wasn't crowded at all in fact we were the only ones there enjoying the 360 degrees of breathtaking view of Death Valley from 5475 ft high above Sea Level.  We didn't stay long because it was windy and cold.  It would have been nice to explore the area but it was also getting late in a day.

RV Tire Blowout

We were on I5 in Oregon when we heard a big pop sound. We exited the highway and turned into Love's gas station. It was early evening but most of the tire service shop in the area are about to closed or were already closed. The mechanic at Love's Gas Station said he could have changed the tire that blowout but he didn't have the right size for it. He however helped us parked at their parking lot so we can stay overnight. At 730am the next day we drove and parked at the Industrial Tire Shop before they opened. We were their first customer. They serviced us before they even open for business. We decided to have all 4 tires in the back changed. Industrial Tire Service - we received a great customer service from them. This is the tire that blowout Those tires were hard to pop out They worked hard and fast. They got it done and we're our of there in just one hour.  Love's Gas Station where we parked overnight. Parking lot for big truc

I'm loving my mustard and ketchup roses. I was told it can survived the winter up here as long as I take it inside, in cool dark place. I'm excited, I hope it will survived. But at the meantime, I'm enjoying all the buds and flowers from it.  

Trying New Coughing Medicine

My throat have been sore from coughing and it has been few days now but still not getting better. I'm also getting headaches from excessive coughing. Oh it's no fun! Today when I was at the store, I had a hard time figuring out what medicine or which one to buy, my gosh, there are plenty to choose from. Anyway, I've decided to get Alka-Seltzer Plus for cough & Mucus DM. I have not tried this before but I always like Alka-Seltzer Bayer brand, I hope this one would work wonders. Controls Cough, Thins and Loosens Mucus. Guaifenesin 1200 mg/Expectorant. Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide 60 mg/Cough Suppressant.
