Casino hopping

We are at the Lone Butte Casino (map), just a few miles from Wild Horse Pass and operated by the same tribe.

The truck and RV spaces here are much larger, with room for slides and a toad, although we have neither. There are only a handful of spaces, but overflow into the adjoining area of the regular lot seems to be tolerated -- several rigs have been there for at least a couple of days. The casino has three bars, two full service restaurants, and a food court with several options. We had a nice dinner at the Verona Chophouse, a sort of Italian-American affair with very good food and an extensive wine list.

On our way here, we stopped at the Love's adjacent to the Interstate and put 100 gallons in at $2.699, about the cheapest we've seen in a while. Being right across the freeway from Firebird Speedway, this station also carries race fuel. We put some water in as well, at what remains of their former dump station, now filled in with decorative rocks.

In a few minutes we will roll east to the Chandler Elks Lodge, where we will settle in until we get word on what is happening with Louise's potential meeting in Wisconsin, or wherever it may happen.
