Day 13 Needles, CA - Las Vegas, NV 114 miles

  We went to complimentary breakfast at Juicy's Famous River Cafe it is next door to the Best Western and we also had supper there last night. It is a good place to eat.
  Some time around 11:00 last night 40 Harleys with a group from Norway pulled in. It is a different group than we had been seeing. They are headed for the Grand Canyon, Sturgis Rally and then to Amarillo, TX to fly home.
 They were a friendly bunch and we had a good visit inspite of their English and us not talking Norwegian.
Here is a video of them:

    Somewhere between Needles and Vegas a bee flew inside my shirt and stung me a couple of times before loosing his stinger in me and before I could get pulled over. Susie had the Adolf's Tenderizer and Benedryl with us and made a paste from the tenderizer and gave me a pill, pulled the stinger out of me and we were back on the road. She is a good Doctor and found the stuff she packed pretty quick.
  We got to the Super 8 Ellis Island Casino about 9AM, put our stuff away and headed for the Strip.
 It was 105 when we left and 119 when we came back. We took a lot of pictures but couldn't get a video of the fountain at the Belagio this time. All we can figure after putting in several new batteries is that is was too hot and draining the batteries. Oh well we got to watch it and visited with a couple from Ohio that got married a couple of days ago. He is 74 and guessing her to be early to middle 60's. He said how old he was and she didn't.

   We had lunch again at the Harley Davidson Cafe. It is an awesome place and has an awesome BBQ.

  Well that is it for the today. Hope all are doing well.

  9. Susie,

    I love the one of you with the M&M's - at least you picked a 'color' - I wouldn't be able to make up my mind...


    Sorry you got stung this morning that had to sting... I had heard about the tenderizer but never used it - did carry Benedryl with us to... Had a little 'first aid' kit - actually was in a baggie...

    Have fun in that special town...
