From Utah, Arizona to Nevada

Aloha Everyone,

Virgin River Gorge crossing means that we bid farewell to Utah, entered Arizona en route to Nevada.

Freeway constructions through Las Vegas is still ongoing causing heavy traffic slowdowns.

Terrible’s Road House travel center is located on the west of Interstate 15 about 30 miles south of Las Vegas.  According to a press release, the place is billed as “the largest Chevron station in the world”.

There are 96 gas pumps, 60 restroom stalls (sparkling clean), and a 50,000-square-foot convenience store. As J.J. and I walked in, we were greeting by rows and rows of slot machines and bright flashing neon lights.

“With 50,000 motorists traveling this stretch of I-15 daily, the Terrible Road House is becoming a tourist attraction in itself.” The statement is by Mark Walters, vice president of sales and marketing for the company.
The two of us are staying at a hotel/casino in Primm, Nevada to avoid daytime excessive desert heat. From here, J.J. estimates 5 hours driving time to Torrance, CA.

Aloha -- Cathi
