Gas stations Past:
Report of Tuesday’s drive:
We were on the road again, this time more desert. Coming close to Death Valley. We tried to sleep in a little. We all deserved it. Looking forward to 2-3 days in Las Vegas and Cousin Howard Dewey D. Hoping this time around he would have that secret ‘system’ for getting rich in Las Vegas.
I always think of one of Jerry Clower’s jokes about Marcel Ledbetter. His line was, “Marcel went to Las Vegas in a $5,000 car and came back in a $90.000 Grey Hound Bus.”
WE left Boron and traveled thru desert (I am sure it was the Mojave) most of the terrain was like this until we came to those mountains in the distance.
Things went well until JJ read a sign “TURN OFF THE A/C NEXT 2O MILES.”
He did and told me the heat gauge was high, but steady.
We climbed up a straight hill for 10 miles, from 500 ft to about 4000.
The mountains were pretty or unique. Much like the ones of Utah. We did get some cactus in the desert.
Barren and hot. WE reached Nevada temp is 123 degrees.
This is some Las Vegas shots.
the above new hotel blows my mind with electronic advertisement that HUGE!
