Flag of United States  , Nevada

Crossing the border into Nevada  we realized with the first billboard that we were entering the land of gambling and sexy women offered 24-7.  The billboard told us "Get off now" and featured a girl in a bikini.  That was our first clue.  Last night we slept with the Big Boys in Jackpot, Nevada.  After driving for hours through sagebrush cowboy country with the big rigs barreling past our chug-a-lug campervan we landed at Cactus Pete's RV park and casino.  We managed to grab the last parking slot in an encampment of humongous 30 ft RVs.  Our Roadtrek feels miniscule sandwiched between them.  The  skies opened up with thunder and lightning as we plugged in for cable tv, heater, and microwave opportunities.  After a night in the casino drinking free miniature drinks and playing video poker we climbed into our tiny bed and slept with the peace of knowing  this morning we will be crossing the border into Idaho and heading for the SawTooth Mountains and then Glacier Nat’l Park.  Heaven awaits us!
