Up early this morning and a quick shop at WinCo. I threw everything in the fridge and decided to deal with it later and we hit the road by 10:30 am. The weather today was sunny and warm (20C) and no wind so the journey over the big bald prairie was quiet and the wind generators were ….NOT… turning…which is a good thing. We decided to stop in Jackpot, Nevada instead of Twin Falls, Idaho for the night. Most times it’s too cold for us in Jackpot on our way south as it’s at 55oo ft. but today it was nice. We plugged in for $18 but there is no water as they have already turned it off for the winter. No big deal. A good shower for both of us at the RV office and a buffet dinner at the casino and all is well. In case you wondered we aren’t gamblers so we didn’t leave any money behind in the casino. Tomorrow we’ll be up early and try to outrun the wind and weather behind us. A wind advisory is in effect from ten am on so maybe we’ll be lucky and beat it. We plan to spend the night in Ash Springs and then on to Laughlin on Friday. The temperatures are dropping by about 20 degrees F over the next couple of days. Brrrrr!
