1st Day.

Hi, this morning around 8:00 AM we hit the road. Traffic wasn't too bad today. Our first stop was Peggy Sue's Diner. This is a place where you need to go there once, just to say you've been there. Food was good and the Dinasuars were neat. But no need to go there again.

Hi, here are some wild animal that are in Peggy Sue's back yard. This not what you would expect to see at a fifties diner. Well time to hit the road again. We need to make it to Las Vegas.

We are here.

Hi, we made it here and got all set up; Bob took care of the unhitching [not over hitched] and all of the outside items and Lee took care of the inside set ups. We decided to just stay here tonight and relax. But we did go to the local Super Wal-Mart for necessary supplies. [ice cream]

The drive up here was uneventful; We didn't encounter any rain, snow, wind, or heat. I brought my tire chains and ice scraper just in case. The temps have been between the 60's and 70 's today. I think I can use my ice scraper to make sure I get all of the ice cream out of the carton.

I only took two pictures of our camp sight; The sun was rapidly going down.

Hi, poor people can't afford to pay for a car wash; I have to do it myself when we get home and when the rainy weather is over.

Hi, some one mentioned Valley of Fire? [HiHoAgRV] Great idea. This morning we drove to and through the Valley of Fire. My eyes were seeing RED. Everything was red. Felt sota like Utah. After seeing every thing there we decided to go to Hoover Dam; I wanted to see the new bridge. What a massive project that is. Maybe next time we will be able to drive across the new bridge. On second thought maybe we won't, I don't like heights.

Hi, today we drove on a lot of dirt and gravel roads due to construction; And some dirt roads because that's all there was. So no car wash for the Lincoln. [Vinnie] By the way I almost forgot to tell everyone we drove to Arizona today.

Such forethought, Bob, you knew you shouldn't wash your car before leaving.

3rd day.

Hi, today we went into town; We gambled our trailer and Lincoln away and drank with what change we had left. We need a forum member to take us home. [just kidding] Quite a busy day, it was. "Around the world in eight hours." First stop Las Vegas.
