Avi Casino

We are in the dry camping area of the Avi Casino near Laughlin, NV. It was another few hours on the road and we arrived here at about 3:00 PM. They have all-you-can-eat pasta and salad for $7.99 tonight in the buffet. We just might give that a try. The wind just came up so it will at least cool things down a little. Lots of off air digital TV to watch later. The little “Wingman” add on to the rooftop batwing antenna is sure paying for itself. There is not much need for the Starchoice in the USA. Except for hockey, football, figure skating, curling…….

The new 6 volt golf cart batteries are doing well. We have been staying in RV parks more than usual just to get a good first charge into them. We stopped for over an hour yesterday and the fridge kept running. It would never do this on the old batteries.

  1. Are you starting to feel the pressure to get home? I can't believe it's mid-April and you're only in Nevada.

  2. We will have to pick up the pace. Norma wants to stop in Las Vegas to try to find something to wear at Brooks wedding this summer. After that it will be five or six hours on the road every day.

  3. Well, I hope you drop a few coins while in Vegas!

  4. 5 or 6 hours...childs play...

    Please explain or just email us (no rush ) what you do to get TV in the USA without seeting up the Star Choice dish. Don;t need it till end of October.

  5. Las Vegas - our home town in the U.S. We have a casa in the Northwest. You will probably travel through the south end until you head north. Do you head up towards Reno or go further west before heading north?

    Those new batteries - the trick, and it is a difficult one, is to not draw them down too far. Those batteries can lose umph fast if they get a few deep discharges - but then you probably know all this.

    Travel safe amigo.
