Williams to Vegas

Today we hit the Mojave Desert in it's most extreme. The signs said it was 118F in Vegas but everybody told us it was actually 125F. Unbelievable heat that almost did in the VW. It needed care and had to go into a shop for a little fuel system work. We camped in the KOA at Circus Circus where we encounters an aggressive population of cockroaches and had probably the worst nights sleep. The heat never let up. The Vegas Strip was what you would expect. Lots of people, lots of spectacle. 

But the treat was meeting Juanita Delgadillo, the guardian angel of Route 66. He had the idea of making the Route an historic site. It was a pleasure to meet this person.
