If coming from vegas be prepared for delays in the gorge...down to one lane each way. Bridge rebuild or something going on.

Well I will be coming down to this event from Vegas on Friday. Been a while since I have been to any event and looking forward to seeing some old friends. Glad to see the wind calming down by Friday too.

It’s 43 degrees but calm this morning at 06:00 but calm near Battle Mountain, NV.. I’m starting out early to get as many miles behind me before the winds pick up.

We're getting ready to hit the road. Both of us tired, between Hans' cell phone going off at 0130 and trains every 30 min, not much sleep around here.
Should be about 5 hours or so, mabe a bit more. Mid afternoon arrival I guess.

Hey Hans/John/Pat et. al.

We're in room 208. Niki says we get to go for a hike in Snow Canyon......probably a misnomer but we'll see. A little breezy here, at least at the motel, too much for my limited flying skills anyway. See you all soon.

I made it safely. Already saw John and Hans. I'm in 206. Took me right at 7 hours.

Made it all the way from Phoenix to Vegas without stopping except for the McD's drive thru in Wickenburg. Decided not to stop in Vegas proper, but to get on 15 on the north side then stop. Wound up pulling off at the Vegas Speedway exit for gas and the bathroom. This is just down the street from Nellis. To my great surprise, when I came back out to the car it looked like a large sortie was returning to base. I saw F-35s, F-16 Aggressors, F-18s, A-10s, a C-130 and a Blackhawk. Thank goodness the camera was easily available. Got out and took lots of pics!

On the Way!

I'm in a motel in El Paso, TX now. 500 miles is far enough for today. Besides, my reservation isn't until Thursday. I'll head for Phoenix in the morning.
