Happy 36th Anniversary, Julie.

Fillmore UT, to Mesquite, NV


The lady at the front desk called me at 10AM to remind me that checkout was 11AM. I have never had this kind of call before. I was determined to stay here as long as possible and so I did. It is my anniversary, after all. Had a big breakfast and coffee before I was forced to leave.

Was finally on the road headed south by 10:45AM. I-80 quickly became I-15 near Fillmore. I was lucky enough to

share a conference call with Julie and Kate while rolling down the interstate. We decided a three-way call is harder than you would think so gave it up after a while. Nice hearing from the girls.

The weather has turned much nicer. Ice and snow is no more. It is 40 degrees, but feels much warmer. Up until now, I have been driving in winter conditions this whole trip. Feels nice.

Arrived in Mesquite, NV around 1:30PM... I think. The time zones in this area always confuse me. Checked into the Virgin River Casino, a famous oasis for retired folks coming over from Utah and Arizona to gamble. I myself appreciate the room rates, Twenty-seven bucks a night, not bad.

Sent a picture of palm trees and reported temperatures to be 70 degrees. Happy anniversary, Julie!
