Perfect riding weather, we stopped for gas and ice for the cooler, then jumped on the interstate for an uneventful trip. The scenery was pretty although the road north was fairly straight. Up and down in altitude, rocks and mountains provided a good view.
We stopped in Baker for gas and lunch, giving The Mad Greek a try. We were both glad we did...great food and fun atmosphere combined with top-notch service.
Back on the road we finally arrived in Vegas to busy but not heavy traffic. We located our hotel, Tuscany Suites, and got checked in. Wow! HUGE room, kitchenette area with coffee maker and frig (microwave only for an extra fee), sofa, chair, coffee table, bathroom with separate shower and tub, plus a great patio overlooking the pool plus two chairs and a table.
Added bonus...nice laundry facility! Since we arrived early, we got all our laundry done and had plenty of time for a nice dinner in their casual restaurant. I finally got my birthday lasagna (huge portion and delicious) and a Newcastle Brown Ale. Stu had shrimp marinara and an Alaskan Amber Ale. Both beers were on tap - sweet!
Oh, we liked it so well that we cancelled the condo and extended two days here. We're paying around $50 including taxes. Can't go wrong for that....
