Our cozy home at Kaibab Paiute Indian Reservation has come to an end. The luxury of full hookups for $12.50 a night is a tough thing to say goodbye too. However not having a cell signal or TV makes it a little bit easier. Phoenix is the ultimate destination for the end of the month but there is still a problem. Between us and Phoenix lies hundreds of miles of the Colorado Plateau. That elevation means cold weather, and cold weather is something we are getting sick of. Time to head west into the low lying desert of Nevada and warm our bones back up. First we'll need to restock at Wal-Mart. Nearly two full weeks have gone by since we have been shopping and the pantry is empty. Cut us some slack. Our house is 31 feet long. That makes the pantry and fridge a little small on space. Shopping complete it's time to do what we do best. Hit the road.
The noise you hear in the video is what we have to put up with when driving in the mountains. That's the sound of Penny's engine making some noise to slow us down for a change. Bascially the gas turns off but the motor keeps everything spinning. The parasitic drag caused by making everything turn takes energy. Downward momentum turns the wheels, and the engine sucks up that momentum to keep us from careening off the highway from going to fast.
Casa Blanca casino will be our home for tonight. There website says free overnight parking for RV's in designated lots. With this comes security patrols, lighted walkways, and a place to let Eli stretch his legs.
Katie eyed up the Del Taco we passed on the way in. Today is Tuesday. Taco Tuesday. Three tacos for $1.39.... dinner plans have been made.
I'll finish up the crap Utah beer (can only buy cold beer at 4% abv or below) and enjoy the rest of the night with some free entertainment. Nothing like an Elvis impersonator at a casino to let you know that you're in Nevada.
