A change in plans and a slight delay. As much as I would love to do the Route 66 portion of the trip, some time constraints (and dollar constraints) have cropped up. So I have decided to simply go the most direct route, which is US15 through Las Vegas, Utah and into Colorado.
Of course, at Ryan's urging, I will drive the strip in LV as it has to be more than 40 years since I was there and much has changed. I might even throw some quarters in a one-armed bandit - oh wait! It's all electronic now! I guess I will buy a card and try my luck anyway.
The delay, which isn't a biggie for me, is I am waiting for the plumber to show up at Ryan's house to replace a blown water heater! Hopefully I will be out of here by noon and miss the outbound Los Angeles traffic.
