Today was a long day! We spent most of the time in the car, but we finally made it to Nevada! It feels so good to be here....I may even have some energy to hit the casino! Mom, I heard Wheel of Fortune calling my name!!! LOL!

Day 1: Macungie to Elyria OH. No speeding tickets, cautions, or problems of any kind. Maria's prayers are working out in our favor for a change. 420 miles of beautiful PA scenery and not so beautiful OH scenery. 52.3 mph average for day 1. It was good to get into out hotel Thursday evening after 7 hours of driving. Good martinis that night Day 2: …
This is the third leg of my trip and was fairly boring because of the terrain and the fog covered mountains most of the way. I did get to go through Reno and Carson City. The most exciting part of this leg was my encounter with a chapter of the Mercanaries of California. I first ran into them at a gas station when 20 or so of them pulled in, took every open pump, revved their engines until my ears hurt. I filled up and headed down the highway.

After that we were back in the minivan for a 4 hours drive to our next town of Elko. The road was quite straight and boring.

We were just driving through Elko and stopped at the Red Lion. Got a great room (large, modern, clean) for a good price ($99) and a free breakfast.The breakfast is what really did it for us. It was available for up to 4 people (we were only two) and we could choose anything on the Casino restaurant breakfast menu. We each had a huge steak and eggs breakfast with choice of toast or pancake along with either hash brown potatoes or country potatoes. Beverages were included (non-alcoholic).
Will we stay again? If we are passing through again, you bet!
