Spent the night at the North Las Vegas Freightliner facility, parked outside the gate. What a busy place, trucks coming and going all night long. And then the train on the other side of the road ran nearly every hour. But a beautiful morning and I was at the Service Office at 8 when the RV section opened.
Paperwork completed, we left the coach in their hands and headed for breakfast and then the strip to see how it had changed.
Lots of new building, hundreds of people for a Friday morning at 1030. I would have thought they would still be sleeping or something. Stopped and walked thru Fremont Street. This is OLD VEGAS and Fremont Street has been closed to vehicles and covered with lights. There is also a ZipLine that goes the two block distance. Beer and other libations are legal on the street and you have the option of several different cups or containers. One of them holds 45 ounces of what ever.
Checked with the Freightliner desk at 1:30 and said the coach was on a test run, stop by in an hour and they will be done. Headed that direction and pulled up at 2:15. Seems one of the heater hoses had broke thru and the other was ready to. BOY were we lucky to have that happen in a town instead of on the highway. They replaced the hoses, refilled the unit with antifreeze (12 gallons) and we were ready to go.
Too late to head for home so we found an RV Park and stayed the night. This weekend is a good time NOT to be in Vegas. They are expecting over 100,000 bikers. We saw one parking lot, city block size, fill with bikes. Understand they plan a parade on one of the days. We will be long gone when that happens.
Home Bound so the entries will be less frequent. Have an interesting trip approaching thru the Mexico Copper Canyon.
