  • Title: Sunset Adventures – Leaving Las Vegas?!?



“So we’re calling the 1-800 number. I’m like, ‘Should I call 911 and tell them we’re locked in this canyon?!?’”

Buckle up as we set out in the Jeep on a recent Sunset Adventure – after work, of course – to the incredible Red Rock Canyon, just 15 miles from our lovely RV site at Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort. Less than half hour from civilization and all the comforts of our home on wheels… 

Just four hours later, it felt like a world away from indoor plumbing, real food, and our cozy bed: Welcome to PANIC in the canyon!

Sunset Adventures are an amazing escape, at the end of the workday, to get out and explore the local area, wherever we happen to be, often with GyPSy Guide/Guide Along – our favorite GPS audio tour guide – telling us where to go and what to see all along the way.

Ride along with us to experience fascinating discoveries and unique Sunset Adventures at various locations throughout the U.S., including the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas; Craters of the Moon National Monument in Idaho; Theodore Roosevelt National Park in Medora, North Dakota; Ghost Hunting in Tombstone, Arizona; and Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas.

Every sunset holds a promise of a new adventure. Russ and Sherri encourage YOU to get out there and see the world! Their narrative paints a vivid picture of how to weave work and adventure into an exciting lifestyle on the road.

Join us for SUNSET ADVENTURES – Leaving Las Vegas?!?

Gypsy Guide App: 5 Reasons You’ll ❤️ GPS Audio Driving Tours (article):

What a great way to experience a new place: with an overview, insider tips, and a colorful narrated tour by someone who knows and loves the destination. A guided tour is by far the best way to explore a new place, but what if you’re not in the city? What if there is no hop-on hop-off trolley tour… (continue reading)
