Last Day in Sin City…

Today was preparation day.

Tomorrow we leave on a two day trip over to Lancaster, CA.  We’ll overnight in Barstow and then head in to Lancaster on Sunday.

After lunch at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville on the Strip, I got started on some things I wanted to get done before we leave.

As usual my driver’s side rear inside dual needed some air so I cranked up the rig and used the built-in air compressor to top off the tire.

Next I added a 12 volt plug back in the bedroom and wired it directly to the battery. This way it’s easier to run 12 volt stuff when we’re boondocking and not plugged into shore power.

Then I hooked up a tywrap on my PacBrake on the engine to see how it’s working.

About 4:45 pm we headed out to have dinner at Blueberry Hill Restaurant. Then, coming back toward the rig, we stopped off at WalMart for some supplies.

Finally, we dropped by Starbucks to pick up a couple of coffees to have tomorrow morning before we leave.

We plain on leaving about 10 am tomorrow. That should put us in Barstow around 1:30 – 2:00 pm. It’s only about 150 miles but we plan on getting diesel along the way, and of course, I normally drive 55 so it will take us around 3 1/2 – 4 hours.

More tomorrow from Barstow…
