There is, or was, a really good China Buffet just a block or two north of the London bridge.  We used to stop in Havasu when passing thru just to have lunch or dinner.

Hooray! we have made it to Lake Havasu and we are just in the process of setting up camp. I almost ate the big one as the wife was driving the pick up and towing the pontoon boat and it appears I apparently installed the 2" ball for the boat trailer and it was supposed to be the 2 5/16 in ball (yup pretty dumb none). You guessed it, the boat trailer came off when we crossed a railroad crossing and my lovely little wife was driving a pick up truck being chased by a 27' boat. It got a little ugly for a few seconds but thanks to her great reactions and calm head it all ended up well and after a few minutes of a** chewing and apologies from me we got back on the road and made it to our camping spot which is absolutely great. Thanks again to Luvrbus for getting us to make our reservations early before the last few canadians arrived and resulting in us getting the absoultely best spot on the lake.

All Is good- and the temp is abour 85 and looks to stay in the 80's for the entire week we will be here.

Life is Good -  Very Good.
