We got through Vegas, no problem! During our drive we were talking about how cold and the weather was going to be! Tonopah was looking at a low around 15 degrees. That would be no problem with our heater in the trailer, but because the thermostat is out, it doesn't work and we've been depending on Mr. Heater. In Beatty we stopped by Dollar General and while I got lunch together he went inside and bought a small heater. The only choice they had. Had our lunch and back on the road.

We pulled into Tonopah Station about 1600 and they had a few RV spots available. Paid our $27.00 and hooked up to electricity. Got the heater going and we settled in for the night. Leftovers of pork for dinner so that was simple. I had some soup I had frozen on the road. Cold night. I actually wore my sweatpants to bed, which I never do! About 0300 I was warm enough to get out of them. The little heater was doing its job!

This morning (Monday) we woke up about 0530 and the day got started. The temps were reading 15 degrees with a feels like temp of 1 because of the wind. We knew we only had about a 3 hour drive to home so we decided to head into Tonopah Station and have breakfast. Delicious and filling. Back to the trailer to hit the road!

|This morning...15 degrees..feels like 1...!|
We had a wonderful drive from Tonopah to home. Not much traffic, just the way we like it! Pulled into home at about 1200! Then the work started. It was so cold here. We had little snowflakes off and on but not enough to stick. I did my thing inside the trailer while Ken did his stuff outside. Because of the temps, he's going to have to winterize the trailer once again. He pulled over to the dump area on our property and was able to dump the black tank, but when it came time for the gray, didn't happen. It was frozen! He tried several different heat sources but nothing happened. So as we sit tonight, we're hoping it will thaw soon. Tomorrow we'll run to Walmart to pick up some RV antifreeze and we'll pick up our older generator that's been fixed at the shop in Dayton.
|Waiting for this one to open..and look for ghosts!|

As much as we enjoyed the trip, it's always nice to be home too. Have a good evening everyone!
