The trip from Las Vegas to Mound House is 480 miles, way too far for one day of hauling 8 tons of luxury coach. We almost always stay overnite in Tonopah, roughly halfway, but this time we decided to drive on to the thriving metropolis of Hawthorne. It was a 320 mile drive and we're glad we did it. The next day, high winds are forecast, we'll get an early start (8:00 a.m.)and arrive in Mound House late morning.
A great place to stay in Hawthorne is the RV/Truck lot provided by the El Capitan Casino & Hotel. It's free and we get TV reception on the antenna! Dave got the generator fired up, so we could watch the Dancing with the Stars. Dinner in the casino restaurant is always good and inexpensive.
