or How Windy was It Today?
We pulled out of Countryside RV Resort about 8:45, a little ahead of schedule for a change, bound for the Las Vegas Thousand Trails, about 320 miles away. But our first stop was a CircleK about 3 miles away to top off the rig.
We hadn’t hooked up the truck yet, so while I was taking on 62 gallons of diesel at $3.45 a gallon, Jan drove a few blocks away to pick us up some breakfast sandwiches from Jack in the Box.
We met back up at a large parking lot across the street to hook up the truck. Finished with that and deciding we both wanted coffee, I walked back across the street to the CircleK and got us coffee/cappuccino combos to go with our sandwiches.
We were back on the road to Las Vegas a little after 9:30, and made good time until we turned on US93. Then it was 15 miles of stop and go traffic until we finally got out of the Phoenix Metro area.
A while after passing through Wickenburg, the wind starting picking up, and just got worst as time went on. It did calm down a bit getting on I-40 and through Kingman, But once we were back on US93 it got worse again.
By the time we crossed into Nevada over the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge it was making for an interesting drive, but as soon as we got into Boulder City, it all calmed down, and it was smooth sailing all the way to the RV park.
We got parked a little after 4:30, and we were lucky enough to get the last 50 amp site that could hold a 40 foot RV. We decided to eat in tonight and finish off the leftover pizza from our visit to Streets of New York last Saturday.
As far as tomorrow, we really haven’t made any plans yet. We’ll see what comes up.
Thought for the Day:
‘The first white people in America, certainly the first in the South to exhibit their interest in the reaching of the Negro and saving his soul through the medium of the Sunday-school were Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson." – Booker T. Washington, 1910.
