Our Journey Begins

We left Williams, Arizona bright and early in the morning…we were excited about being on the road again. A quick stop for gas and down Interstate 40 we went heading west for just a short while…until we turned onto Old Highway 66 at exit 139.

We drove 66 all the way into Kingman, Arizona and what a fabulous road…fairly smooth…very scenic…light traffic…just an enjoyable, leisurely drive. There was a patch of area where it was “Prairie Dog Haven”, they were all over the place…popping out of their holes…sitting on the roadside munching…running across the highway…ooops…one didn’t make it…he stopped right in front of us to look and well…splat! Later we also tagged a big bird…they were all feasting on the fresh deer on the roadside and this one stayed a little longer then he should have and tried to dodge us at the last minute…just couldn’t get totally out of our way when we heard the thud and seen feathers flying…then from the rear view mirrors we seen him taking a quick dive to the ground…by this time we were long gone.

There were a few small towns we past that were just adorable…Truxton was one that reminded us of a little western town that was just the way we would imagine it to be.

We opted to stay the night in Laughlin, Nevada since we had some free stuff coming to us. We got a room and had a nice, long, hot, shower where I was able to dye my hair and do all the necessary shavings. Any full-timer out there can totally relate to this experience. It was nice to be in an air conditioned room since it was just over 100 that day with a slight breeze but of course it was a really hot breeze. We did the usual casino hopping…hit a few jackpots…ate a buffet and just had some fun for the night
