Winter 2020 Trip, Day 33: Las Vegas

We enjoyed Shabbos in Las Vegas’ Henderson suburb, spending time with my parents and our family back together.  It was also nice seeing our friends from the Shul.

This morning I ran the 8ish miles on the Mccullough Trail from Anthem to Henderson:

After my run, Trish and I and my parents hiked up to the top of the local hill to look down on their neighborhood:

This afternoon we visited with Tricia’s relatives, then returned to my parents’ house for dinner.

Trish and the kids flew back to New York late this evening.  Tomorrow I start driving back to New York.

I ran out of gas a few miles from home so I took M’s motorcycle to the RV, filled it up, drove back, siphoned gas into my motorcycle, and then we drove back to the RV.  I launched flight 132:

Winter 2020 Trip, Day 27: Salton to Glamis Reposition

Pretty sure no flying this morning:

As quickly as it filled, the beach is empty now that the fly-in is over:

We drove up to the gas station where we dumped and filled.  I went for a run in the rain, dodging flash flooding:
