It was around 6 when Bill and I got up on Tuesday, Nov. 6th although Clemson had opted to hop out of bed half hour earlier. Bill got up to see if he wanted out but no, he jumped onto his bed on the couch and proceeded to go back to sleep. He must have been too warm up in bed with us. We had our coffee and tea together and I read a few blogs on my laptop. Bill had to check them on his phone instead.
|It was a beautiful morning to get up and get moving|
We had a bite to eat, we were washed and ready to pull out of the Casino lot by 8:30. Bill and Rob took advantage of the hookups and both dumped our gray and black tanks before hitting the road. Bill also added some fresh water, enough to get us through the night. It was 51F and sunny from the time we left until we reached our destination 233 miles later. The temperature rose gradually throughout the morning.

We knew where we were headed, having camped overnight here in spring of 2017 so Bill led today. We hopped back on I-40W and it was clear sailing and driving for an hour and a half before stopping at a Love’s for fuel and a pit stop. This was a nice station as we were able to get into the regular pumps and take advantage of the cheaper rate of $3.289/gal. We pulled around back and enjoyed a coffee that we purchased inside.

|Quite the decor in the washrooms/storm shelters but it is actually very nice|

When dishes were done, I closed the outside door and finished my post. The rest of the evening was quite with our books. This has been a great day, getting one step closer to Arizona. I hope you have had a good one as well.
|And we wasted no time in getting our chairs out to relax|
It was quite hot in the sun - Yay!
