After leaving the RV yard in Las Vegas late afternoon, we skipped around the corner to Walmart to load up. Missed the turn off and ended up on the freeway but we made it.
We got on the road and left the city. The roads are so straight and there is nothing other than hills and dry desert. We passed a few small towns with truckstops and servos. As well as a larger town called Laughlin, which is only about 30min from where we are staying tonight in Needles. Laughlin is a town of 7500 people located in Clark County, Nevada. Its is situated in the middle of the Nevada desert and is best known for its entertainment, gaming and water sports. The Colorado river passes through the middle of the town and has a port located on the river.
Needles is a smaller town down the rough road also on the Colorado River, but is in the state of California. It lies on the western banks of the Colorado River in the Mohave Valley subregion of the Mojave Desert, near the borders of Arizona and Nevada and roughly 180km from Las Vegas.
Having a BBQ and beers tonight. Off on part of Route 66 tomorrow, headed for Williams, Arizona. A Wild West town, known as the gateway to the Grand Canyon.
