So glad he came..love the fact that at 18 1/2 he still will come see Grandma and Papa when he can. Between work and school it makes it difficult. Hoping the other grandkids will do the same when they can as they get their driver's licenses. Love those grandsons!

|Loaded and ready to go..|

We left home just about 1000 and were headed for Beatty, NV about 230 miles form home. Amazing the lack of traffic on a major holiday. We love our highways here in rural Nevada. Well, just before we got to Tonopah, NV Ken said, "Well we can go to Beatty or we could head for Rachel and then stop by Lake Mead if you want" hmmmm...well what do you want to do? We had lunch where we filled with gas and then instead of heading straight we made a left on Highway 6 and headed for Rachel. I know, not what we expected, but we're not on a schedule except to end up in Quartzsite sometime next week so we can meet our new friends in person and be there for Bloggerfest.
We had a beautiful drive with NO ONE behind us for 109 miles!! Hard to believe huh?! Ken does the speed limit and you would definitely expect more people to come up and pass you.
|This little place is open mostly summer hours..expensive though|
|Mountains along 95..|
|Tonopah, NV the Clown Motel up for sale so we have to get|
grandkids there..supposed to be haunted..
|We love the Mizpah..it IS haunted..we've seen it!|
We got here to the Alien Inn about 1600 or a little before. We went inside and got our site ...water, electric and possibly sewer..two of the sites may have had sewer hookup but they were kind of funky, so we decided against it. $15.00 a night total, so we're ok with just water and electric. 4 sites they have and we're the only ones so far. We've stayed here a few times before and it's quiet and we're happy. Nothing fancy, but for the price it certainly works..There is no TV reception but we watched a movie (Ken had the cd) called A Ranger, A cook and hole in the sky..old one with Sam Elliott (be still my heart...) ..it really was a good movie..we weren't happy with the ending, but still a good movie.
|On our way to Rachel...|
|Our site for the night..|
|Per RV Park Reviews this area is free to park..we'll check n the|
am..but nice boon docking spot..
|Another view of our campsite..|
Tomorrow we'll head for Lake Mead and when we're done there we'll probably spend a night or two in Parker at La Paz Couty Park before heading toward Quartzsite. Well, that's the plan anyway at this point...haha :)
