SL/LV Roadtrip!

I just got back from a 7 day road trip to Salt Lake City, Las Vegas and back. We were going to Salt Lake for the World Super Bike races and Vegas to pop my Vegas cherry (my first trip). I’m breaking this up by day because so much happened on the trip.

Cabo, Mr. O and I set out Thursday night for Salt Lake (names changed for privacy) in the truck. I drove the first 7 hours and got us into Eastern Oregon, unfortunately, I also got us pulled over for going 80-some in a 65, but the cop let us off with a warning. Whew. I decided to call it a night after that and settled down in the back to sleep. The guys put on The Hangover (awesome on the way to Vegas, btw).

We stopped in Jackpot, NV to pick up beer since Utah only has 3.2% beer and it tastes horrible. I made friends with a little black cat while we waited for the liquor store to open at 9. We felt like major boozers waiting for the store to open, but oh well.

When I woke up again, we were a few hours outside the race track. We passed through the Bonneville Salt Flats and saw all kinds of messages people made with rocks in the sand. I suppose there isn’t much to do when the beer is watered down.

We pulled up into Tooele, UT where the track is located and saw a herd of wild horses running along the road.

Once we set up camp, we headed into Salt Lake for an autograph session with some of the racers. Before we left, I took a panorama of the track we were camping at.
