After leaving Kingman, AZ we began our descent into Bullhead City, AZ/Laughlin, NV. The descent is 10 miles of 6 and 7 percent grades. But our 6 speed Allison transmission worked perfectly and Jim hardly used the brakes at all.
Bullhead City, AZ sits on the east side of the Colorado River and Laughlin, NV sits on the west bank of the river. Laughlin’s main industry is gambling. The last time we were here, it was River Run and we ended up in the middle of 75,000 motorcycles. Our timing was a little better this trip. Except that the main road through Laughlin is under construction which made for interesting maneuvers with the motor home.
We spent the night in the Tropicana Express RV parking area. No hookups but they do have a dump and potable water. It used to be free to camp here but beginning this year they now charge $7 a night. We may have to rethink if we want to stay here again.
