Williams AZ to Amargosa Valley, rest area..

I set the alarm for 0445 this morning, figuring to turn on the coffee and wake Ken about 0500.  Pretty much worked that way.  Coffee and little treats, showers, breakfasts and we were on the way about 0930 or so.  
Gotta share every time we pass by!  Russell Kay, Antoine Miller, Seth Kay!!
Our gorgeous sunrise this am Wiliams, AZ!


We had a beautiful drive, even though it was on I 40.  Not a lot of cars but lots of trucks! We drove and then at North Vegas it was time for a later lunch.  Pulled into a Smith's Marketplace. While I got lunch ready, Ken walked into the store to see what he could find. Nothing. He said I would love the vegetable area.  We had lunch and them once we were done, I went into the store.  Shouldn't have, came out much poorer than when I went in LOL..No paper products though..

Love seeing the scenery change!




Coming into Las Vegas...




We are spending the night at the rest area at Armagosa Valley, NV.  Ken filled the truck before we headed across the road. $3.39 a Gallon!  Back east we averaged $1.65 a gallon with the lowest being $1.43 in Texas.  What awesome prices! I'm thinking we're paying because we're in the middle of nowhere! 



Lots of traffic in Las Vegas..not sure where they were all going!

We enjoyed our happy hour (s).  Our oldest son, Bryan called tonight just to check in and see where we were.  Nice conversation. :)  Adam called this am to update us on him. He's in Oregon and expected home on Friday. I texted with our Marine and Sailor yesterday and they seem to be doing well : )  Gotta get their Easter packages in the mail once we're home :) 

Have a great night! Even though the ending of our travels didn't go as planned it was still good and we have a nice home to go home too. :)  We will travel soon when this craziness is over :)

    2. Thanks guys, we are looking forward to getting home now that we're so close :) I'm sure there's things to be done there too! Temps are still on the cold side but that's ok, we've got plenty of wood for the wood stove!

  2. Yay!! Glad you are almost there. Traffic around here is pretty much the same. People have to go to work regardless. I haven't been to Walmart, but I'm thinking it might be fun just to go look!! I too spent a lot on food this last trip just getting two weeks worth of groceries in the freezer.

    1. WE've got to go into Gardnerville later this week for prescriptions so it'll be interesting to see what a few stores have available. Since it was around 1:00 when we went through Vegas we figured most should have been at work already, but who knows. Be glad when all this is over!

  7. Yes it is as much as we love going! Too bad the country closed down or we'd still be on the road for a week or so. Ken is always more ready than me to get home, so he said last night he was ready to be home. I don't think I like the new normal LOL!
