On the road Vegas to Amado, AZ

Saturday a.m. and I do mean a.m.

This is the pits – it is dark and cold out – couldn’t sleep any more so got up and made coffee. Its 4:30 – that’s what I get for going to sleep at 9:30.
Yesterday, Friday, morning we left Las Vegas after gassing up. Hit the road around 8.

Lake Mead
Didn’t stop except for lunch and more gas until we got to Amado, AZ. Amado is about 40 miles south of Tucson – exit 48 off the I-19. It was just dark as we pulled into the Mountain View RV Park. We’ve stayed at this park the last two years in a row and it’s never been any near full. This time there were only a few spaces available. Lucky we even got one. They are really nice people here so we’re really glad they are busy.

The drive down was pretty uneventful. Good roads all the way. Took the 93 from Vegas all the way to Wickenburg. The scenery was pretty much what this sign says.
Sign says it all
Then even more of the same.
Nice view
With the exception of some rock jumbles.

Then the 60 to the I-10 in Phoenix. The only busy part was from Wickenburg to south of Phoenix. Right through Sun City West! And commuter traffic. Did see one quite, to me any way, interesting thing. We got passed by a motorhome – 40 footer – towing a full sized bright yellow Hummer that in turn was towing a motorboat – the boat had to be at least a 20 footer. Didn’t get the camera up in time to take a picture. Seems like that shouldn’t be legal.
All the construction on the freeway through Tucson is finished so even with the 5:30 traffic it wasn’t too bad. After checking in and getting everything set up [Whoppie – satellite went up and locked on with no problems] we headed for our favorite restaurant in the area the Cow Palace. It is just across the freeway. Food is delicious and service is great. They had “all you can eat fish and chips” Yum……
After eating neither of us could stay awake – so to bed way to early.
