It was very quiet at the casino last night but for some reason Norma was up at 5:30 AM! I held out for another hour but then got up myself. While Norma was sitting having her coffee at about 6:00 AM, a black pickup came over and had a very good look at us. It had "Security" on the door along with some kind of emblem. It watched for a couple of minutes and then left. I am sure it was from the military base we were parked beside. There was a sign on the fence that said "No Parking Within 15 Feet" which I thought referred to the sign but now realize it meant within 15 feet of the fence. We were probably 10 - 12 feet from the fence. Luckily they did not send a Predator Drone after us!
We got an early start and headed north. As we neared Tonopah where we stayed last year, I asked Norma if she wanted to stop there. It was only a little after noon but 1) there is a Canucks game tonight and I wanted to set up Starchoice and 2) it was colder than heck and I wanted power so we could run the electric heater overnight. The local casino has an RV park with pull-throughs and only charges $18 per night with Good Sam.
It is so cold I almost changed my mind about setting up the dish. We had problems last year finding the signal here and I did not want a repeat performance. I tried finding a site on the Internet where I could watch the game but was not sure it would work. Finally I went out and tried the dish. I had the settings from the Internet and as I swung the dish, Norma yelled, "There it is"! I had found it within a few seconds! Probably my best time ever! The dish is tucked in between the motorhome and the car where it is protected from the wind and I put a concrete block on the mount to hold it in place. Go Canucks!!!!
