The Hotel California in Las Vegas; you can check out any time you like but you can never leave! There is so much construction going on in Vegas, it took us hours to get out of town, I thought we would never leave. We checked out of the Oasis RV Resort at around 10:30. We had to make a “quick” stop at Walmart to pick up a few things that we anticipate needing in the days to come, and we needed to get gas. The Walmart is bigger than those 1970’s malls we used to hang out at back in the day. Walking through the store is like a marathon, it took forever. When we finally got out of that nightmare, we went to the gas station where nothing worked. I went from pump to pump trying to get gas, I finally had to go inside and there was a line with a chatty clerk who was not in a hurry and that took forever. Then when I got done with that I hit the freeway and the construction zone traffic. Plus the interchange to the freeway I needed to go on was closed so I had to go through some ridiculous detours and I made a wrong turn and got further off track. We did not get out of Las Vegas until 2:30.
We pulled into the Zion River Rv Resort at around 6:00 mountain time. We lost an hour because of changing time zones. We set up the motor home in a jiffy and I cooked a steak dinner with sautéed mushrooms with fresh garlic and grilled broccoli. The steaks were bacon wrapped center cut rib eye marinated in lemon juice with a sprinkle of garlic salt, pepper and Lawry,s season salt. Simple but effective.
Internet is poor here so I don’t know how well I can post these next few days but I’ll try. We reserved a shuttle into the Zion National park for tomorrow morning at 9:00 AM. Zion NP is 16 miles away. So far the RV park seems nice, I will see it better tomorrow on day 4
