They Lied

Oops, sorry.  In today's PC culture, they "Misspoke".   About Route 50 in Nevada as being the "Loneliest Highway".  Today's drive took us on Route 93 South which in our opinion dethroned Route 50 from the title.  The proof:




Finally, something to break up the scenery:


Why is it that certain morons have to use highway signs as targets?

Staying at a campground, especially a KOA is a little bit different for us, but it is a good jumping off location.   We're going to drive the car down to Zion National Part tomorrow, we've been told to get an early start because the parking area fills up quickly.  We'll be setting an alarm clock for the first time in a long time.

I just want to clarify what I said in yesterday's post about the mountain roads on Route 50 near Austin, NV.  The roads are completely safe to drive, just require a bit more of caution.  When you are driving a 33,000 pound 40' motorhome towing a car that weighs close to two tons, extra care is the way to drive.  At least it is for me.  Now if I was on my motorcycle, that would be a completely different viewpoint, I'd be looking for roads like that.  YMMV.   :c)
