WINNEMUCCA RV PARK, Winnemucca, NV 89445

 Winnemucca, NV 89445
Can't really rate this RV park. We were lucky to get a site since we didn't arrive until 4pm and they only had 2 sites left.  Staff is nice.
- SITES: Tight together, short, buddy sites (shared utility post).
- PETS: Policy states must be under 25#'s, but they let our 60# dogs in without question. Small (10'x20'), dirty fenced in pet walk area. No poop bags supplied, but they do supply a heavy metal shovel and a bent up rake to scoop. A sign is posted that dogs should be on leash. Huh? In a fenced in area? I'll be glad to leave tomorrow.
 That is the only place they want dogs to do their business. The grassy areas along the edge of the park are for tenting. They try to use every inch for income. These tent areas are 10'x10' areas with a grill along the fence line.
/ WIFI: Free, but they did not offer us the code and we didn't bother since it was only overnight.
/VERIZON INTERNET: Very slow, sometimes timing out.
-SPRINT INTERNET: No signal at all
I was VERY happy to leave this place. I couldn't take this more than one night. I'd rather boondock in a parking lot than stay here.
Now, when I hear the name Winnemucca, its a trigger!
WINNEMUCCA?!! Slowly I turn, step by step...
Maybe you're too young to know what I'm talking about. Let the video below explain.

Here's another RV park with a ridiculous pet friendly policy. Story is from GO PET FRIENDLY, travel blog.
Traveling from Boise, ID to Winnemucca, NV, we did spend about 45 minutes in Oregon.
This trip on US 95 took us through a lot of nothing.  Desert like, desolate ridges, then we hit some huge sand dunes, before arriving in  Winnemucca on Winnemucca Blvd. at Winnemucca RV Park. (Ohhhhh, that name will haunt me!)
We saw at least 3 casinos in this town. I think the town "boasts" 5 casinos.  Gee, that's a reason to stay. Yea, right. When I was in my late 20's I used to go on bus trips to Atlantic City. Someone from work would hire a bus and we'd fill it up. Lots of drinking on the bus. My friend, Beverly would make a thermos of Kamakazi, and we'd do shots the whole 1.5 hr drive down to AC. By the time we arrived, we were feeling very goooood. Part of the package deal for the bus, was we'd recieve a roll of quarters to get us started at a Casino. But not Bev and I. We'd use the money to go eat, or shop or whatever on the boardwalk. They were great times.
I didn't realize all of Nevada allowed gambling.  The only thing I like about the casinos are the cheap and good buffets!
Weather has been crazy! Extreme changes in temperatures. Arriving at Winnemucca (slowly I turn...), it was terribly hot. So hot the dogs didn't want to get out the of air conditioned truck even though they were stuck in there for 4 hours. When I got them out, they tried to jump back in!
I was hoping to do a quick wash (if there is such a thing), but it was so hot out, I have HAVE to stay inside.

Scott is the cook in our family. He hasn't been cooking as much while living our RV life. The kitchen is very small and there are so many new restaurants to try out. But when he cooks, it's always a treat.  He even cleans up the kitchen and does the dishes, well sort of.
I guess he doesn't like to do flatware. Can I really complain? No I can't, but I can still tease him about it. Yes ladies, my hubby is sweet, easy going, a gentleman, & he cooks...and he taken...he's mine. I'm very lucky.
We were late arriving in Winnemucca (grrrr! that name...) because we didn't wake up until 9:30am!!!! I'm usually up by 7am because Devin gets me up. The last 2 days, he has let me sleep AND HE HAS CUDDLED WITH ME!!! So, is this because he is not feeling well because of his sore feet? or is he just changing? I love that he is cuddling with me, but I don't want to be sleeping to 9:30am again...7:30am is a perfect time for me to wake up. Do you hear that Devin?
