Where I stayed
Route 66 KOA
. Interesting word, Seligman, German for "Holy Man". A tidbit for you verbophiles reading this... We climbed quite a bit from Vegas' elevation today and ended up in the land of snow and ice... wha' happened? Staying at the KOA and expecting a low of 5 degrees tonight. Ach Du mein lieber Gott... Translation: WTF!
The nice lady here told us to drain our water hose and use the furnace on board to avoid a freeze-up. Makes sense.
Addendum: We've been here just over an hour, and FOUR long freight trains have passed, causing a nice vibration to the coach. Joe, I know you'll appreciate that. ;0)
Got out of Vegas during the late morning and headed south. Thank God for the GPS in the phone. We did a couple of laps on the interstate, then listened well to the lady and got out of town. We drove to Boulder City and crossed the new bridge over the Colorado River. It's located just a bit above the dam, but you can't see the dam itself from there. I pulled off on a dirt road, hoping to get some photo views and ended up on a narrow road with washboard surface... scary. This moved a few items to new locations in the coach; closer to the floor, you might say. Fortunately, there was a small turn-around nearby. I'm amazed at how maneuverable the rig is, even with the Soobie attached. No need for 40 acres to turn around. We got back on I-40 and proceeded east to Kingman, AZ, our original destination, and gassed-up, regretfully giving the nice girl enough money to buy a used car in the 1950s. What the hell, it's all government money anyway, eh? We decided to go as far as Camp Verde, south of Sedona tomorrow, so charged on to Seligman, AZ
