We didn't have to wait very long to have the rear jack motor installed once the part arrived. Bill and I both sat in the waiting room and before we talked about where to have lunch the service tech said the coach was ready.
Knowing that we were going to be traveling in California and how bad the roads were the last time, I climbed in the co pilot seat. I'm no dummy.
We made a short lunch stop at the rest area. We talked about driving to Pahrump but since we had a late start for us, decided to stop in Needles.
Most of highway 95 didn't have any shoulder, but the traffic was light and the road was in good condition.
We pulled into the Elk's and there was only one other travel trailer there but the other 6 sites filled up later. They have 50 amp full hook ups and they also are pull thru. They have planted oleanders between each site as a privacy fence. Twenty per night isn't bad for California.
Diesel was $3.89 a gallon in town. Bill didn't want to contribute fuel tax to the state of California so drove back across the Colorado River for Arizona prices. Diesel was $2.75 a gallon at a station right by I 40.
For those that have no idea where Needles is, it's along the old historic route 66.
This wheel was used in the filming of "20 Mule Team".
The Elk's had a Cobb Salad tonight for $7.00. Bill and I both thought that sounded good for dinner. We found out that dessert was also included with the salad and rolls.
This lodge has a beautiful patio area that overlooks the valley.
