Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort

We were up and out early (for us) today.  These are the mountains behind the Whiskey Flats RV park.  This place is a definite repeater. 

Today's route took us through Mina, Tonopah, Beatty, Amargosa Valley and on to Las Vegas.  The RV park in Mina looked abandoned.  The parks in Tonopah and Beatty don't look that great, either.  There is a park in Amargosa Valley that doesn't look too terrible.  After leaving Hawthorne, there is no easily obtainable diesel until Beatty, so plan ahead!
These are yuccas.  They're healthy looking specimens.

We got diesel in Beatty.  There is Rebel station with diesel pumps off to the side.  We missed them the first time and had to turn around and come back.  It was a visually chaotic scene with the RV's towed vehicle being a foot away from the car carrier.  We had to wait for awhile, but eventually they left and we were able to pump fuel in peace.

This is one of the things I like about having a Class A.  I do not have to sit all of the time.  It's nice to be able to stand up for awhile.  

Tonight and tomorrow night we are at the Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort.  It is very ta ta.  Towables and Super C coaches and not allowed, only Class A coaches.  Tomorrow I'll get a picture of the entry way, it's really phenomenal.  This is one of the sites, look at all of the palm trees.  It's very lush in here, the grass is just spectacular. 

This is another site that has been owner landscaped.  Most, if not all, of the sites are privately owned.  When the owners are not in residence, the resort rents them out, much like a condo. It's fairly expensive, but we felt that we needed to experience it at least once. 

There's quite a bit to see and do here.  There is the strip, of course, but there are outlet malls up the ying-yang, an enormous Bass Pro Shop and a really enormous mall. We'll probably do the strip tomorrow, and then I'll have had enough of the city and we will leave.  It's good to have a two night stay, we're a little tired.
