We pulled into the Circus Circus RV Park, a place where we stayed back in 2002. It is basically a parking lot and it hasn't changed at all in all the passing years.
We took a swim in the RV park's pool and parked our tired bods in the hot tub, can't pass up a hot tub, even in the desert.
At night it simply glows with all the lights and neon, a feast for your eyes.
The amount of electricity powering all the lights is staggering. That's why you see out in the desert large solar panel farms,
and solar mirror farms, where thousands of mirrors beam sunlight to a tower where heat boils water that powers a generator producing megawatts of electricity.
We got some coupons for a great discount on a buffet in the Treasure Island casino and discount tickets to the Blue Man Group comedy show in the Luxor casino. We've seen that show twice before and enjoyed this show just as much. It's a must see if you ever get the chance.
Inside the Luxor casino, it is themed like an Egyptian pyramid. Lots of interesting decorations all though the casino.
Today we left around 10 am with all our money in our pockets, we didn't gamble even a penny in the casinos, we left that for all the thousands of other people to do. As hard as we looked, we didn't se Elvis anywhere. Maybe he's on vacation?
We headed out on I-15 and drove up a long steep section of the highway. For the very first time that we've owned the Journey (ten years now) the temperature gauge started to climb as we went up in elevation. I carefully drove, keeping the RPMs of the engine up and shifting so the engine stayed in the power band and wasn't lugged.
Once we crested the long hill, the engine temps went right back to normal. I would have pulled over if the engine temp got too high but never had to with careful driving.
298 miles driven today, overnighting at a Flying J in Bakersfield, CA. Topped of my fuel tank with B20 diesel fuel, not crazy about that but since I almost always fuel at a half tank, the remaining fuel should dilute the biodiesel fuel and not cause any power issues.
One more day on the road tomorrow and we'll be arriving at our destination, about 250 miles to go. Looking forward to seeing the granddaughters. :c)
