2017 Nevada Homestead Trip

Hello all,

It has taken a while to make time to write this, well our trip out to Nevada was one of the worst trips we have ever taken in our marriage.


This happened 1.5 miles from the property (Broken Driveshaft). We took the wrong route to the land trying to avoid as much of the moutains as we could, nope that didn’t work out. Burned the brakes up on the Trailer and the Truck. First time I have ever tried to stop a vehicle and had no brakes, that is how I burned the Trailer brakes up.


This is fueling after coming down off of the moutain and cooling the brakes off along with a 2 hour trip through being about 6 hours but we survived.

As always we have our dogs with us and Miss Taylor is her laid back self and our new pup Tanx has to always have the attention.


This made for an interesting trip. We didn’t get as much done at the land as we wanted, yes you guessed it it took us 5 days to get there instead of 3 long trip. You know though the best paret of the trip was being away from work and spending some great quality time with my best friend JoAnn.



So on the way back we had to replace the alternator and Battery thank goodness it failed while in a town that had a Auto Parts store. We bought those items, replaced and got back on the road. Click for photo’s
