Day VIII - "Leaving Las Nicolas Cage"

Day 8

Getting out of Vegas; It's like the city doesn't want you to leave.

I got up early and quickly hit the Mob Museum. 3 floors of awesomeness including guns, artefacts and films about the Mob in North America throughout the 1900's. Super cool place, I recommend it if you find yourself in Vegas.

My challenge for today was to make it out of the city and head South: a task easier said than done. Nevada is hot. Like 100+ Fahrenheit hot. It's crazy. Plus the constant junctions and side roads to look out for are a pain: stop, foot-break, check left, push, go. I never thought I'd say it, but I miss the endless straight roads. The big upside of city pushing is there's interesting sights to see and a 7-Eleven on every corner you pass serving ice cold beverages. But, seriously, what's up with that? How many 7-Eleven's does one need? The highlight of the day was definitely the graffiti which I took a break at to admire and snap some photos of. Props to the artists!

After a full days pushing, I made it to the outskirts of the City, ready to get back into the desert wilderness.
