Blythe to Tonopah

We're in Tonopah, NV in a tiny RV "park" behind a casino. They don't take reservations, it's first come first served. We have a really crappy site, it took two boards to level it. Basically we're in a parking lot with hook-ups behind the casino. We ended up with 30 amp, and the plug receptacle in the power pole is installed upside down so we could not use the surge protector. I'd give this place a solid 1 out of 10. Although it does have good internet, so maybe a 2.
US95 in Nevada is better than in Arizona. Southern Nevada is very unattractive. After about Indian Springs it gets a little better.
We saw brothels on the back roads of Nevada. Here is one now, called the Shady Lady.

Doesn't this look like a delightful place? Ewwwwwww.

Today was, and still is, windy. Fortunately it was generally a tail wind, sometimes a cross. It's so windy at the RV park that the satellite dish can not lock on because it's jiggling. It's very aggravating, I don't like it when my technology is defeated by nature.
On the bright side, there are no ants.
Since we drove a long time today (8 to 4), we may be able to take a day out of the previous schedule, which would be good. After spending 25 days driving around Germany, and 4 or 5 days driving to Bend, I am very ready to be out of a vehicle and back on my bicycle.
