Three days in Las Vegas wore us out! Thankfully though we were able to find a nearby and (supposedly) warm campsite in southern California. We were so exhausted that even the one hundred mile two hour trip from Las Vegas to the Mojave National Preserve was too much.

We got a late start to the day so by the time we got close to our selected campsite the sun had already set. We have a rule to never arrive at our camping are after dark because it makes everything so difficult but we were so close and wanted to be set up so bad we broke that rule.

The following day we were shocked by how cold it was! Turns out the 10-day forecast we looked at was for the cities surrounding the Mojave National Preserve which are at 800 feet elevation and the elevation of our campsite is 4000 feet elevation! I guess you miss details like this when you’re completely and utterly exhausted.

    Fyi: I was camping in a location in which my app said low would be 28. I decided to take a freeze risk and see what would happen. Well it actually got to 18. My tanks…did..NOT freeze. My tanks are exposed under and I did not use antifreeze. I would not do not again but it's good to know. I think how long it was below freezing makes a difference too. This was a quick overnight drop. I'm the morn i opened my waste from open a bit and water started to come out (my vales leak a little so even closed i get a little) son that told me it was far from freezing. It takes a long time for tanks to freeze but also a long time to thaw

    Wearable headlamps are an absolute MUST! Rechargeable via USB are the ones to get.

    What's even worse in Vegas (for crowds) is being there during Trade shows… crowded, but worth it if trade shows are the purpose for going to Vegas. I've been there twice for SEMA and twice for another show.

    Your impromptu site-review failed to mention that ….. no leveling blocks required 🙂 I really enjoyed seeing your alter-egos in the previous video. Quite a difference from your YouTube boy and girl from next door personas 🙂 But then again, "what happens in Vegas ……. "

    Hey guys, I hope you have time to check out the Kelso Dunes. Do yourself a favor and hike to the top then slide down. When sliding down move as much sand as possible. You will be very happy you took my advice too.
    Wishing you well,
    Pat

    I wonder if you can camp with a class b van. We were told that one casino in Washington wouldn’t let us camp with our van. Was that the way it was there. Lake mead has a really nice campground.

    How did Butters get her name? I have a cat who was caught "licking the butter into shape"–according to him! LOL Was there a similar incident?

    Do you have any info on the thermometer you use? Does it tell you the temp inside the RV when you are away so you know the animals are ok?

    Did you ask at Circus Circus how you could get your site "comped" next time you visited? Sometimes you just have to ask? We have boondocked at several casinos for free (haven't tried Las Vegas). They offer a free site on the hopes that you will come in and gamble and eat at their restaurants.

    Why not leave the cats in the camper? That solves the litter box issue. They don't seem to mind the movement and usually just sleep.

    Forgive me if you’ve already been specific, but how could we find this specific location? I may have missed it but didn’t catch trailhead.

    We stayed at Circus Circus several years ago in a trailer in August. In the summer heat the blacktop was like a frying pan! We got out of the pool, put swimsuits in the sink to rinse out the high chlorine. Ate lunch. Needed the sink to do dishes so just took the dripping (not wrung out AT ALL) swimsuits out of the sink and hung them outside the trailer to dry. They were Bone dry in 17 minutes and stiff! Burned our feet through our tennis shoes the blacktop was so hot
