Lucca, I have the same dream, flying in the US in my own RV. I'm in South America, no ocean to cross, so in this regard, I'm better off than you. But I still don't have an RV, so... you're definitely ahead there...

Gentlemen I share similar passion. Flying my RV over your countries. Can we barter?

Default From Sin City to Underworld

Road to Death Valley was smooth. Weather zillion byzillion.






KLAS traffic was just picking up.










Soon enough they got rid of me. "Triple Six where you going?. L06??? OK."






Sin Sity approach thanked for a quick turn and let me loose

I wondered around Cortez then jumped over big ridge.






Behind big ridge was Pahrum, NV. I didn't land. Some people know what's in there. Right there by intersection







Road to Underworld is beautiful. Those rock formations as nowhere else.










Not a single radio wave in ether. They call the place Death Valley for a reason.

Default THAT'S A YES!!!!

Well Mr Vlad, if... I mean WHEN you come down to Brazil in your most famous N666BK you will be very welcome. There's a lot to see here, the weather is generally good, there are interesting places to visit and very good food. I don't think you'll dislike our caipirinhas (typical Brazilian drink) either.
Oh, and also the ladies are not very bad, in my opinion...

Bakery!!! (ed. if I say precise word the software will put astericks instead)












One can not wonder far from his plane. No, I am not going even close to Area51








I spent around 30 minutes on the grounds and lost probably gallon of sweat. OUTTTTT!

Exiting Death Valley was thrilling.











Somebody was following me stealthily I never saw the guy. Spooky.






Just beautiful and very very hot I stayed lower on purpose to enjoy the cracked water bed. Plenty of landing spots but other then that not a soul not a bird around.

You can not stay low for long in Death Valley.







You need to go high at some point.








And you better watch your course or outsouce it to your skyview. There are so many restricted areas and all of them are glowing.


















Have you ever seen green rocks? I have.







I am out of the Valley and snaking my way to L77. It's Chiriaco Summit place in California. Come tomorrow to check Russian RV vs General Patton tanks battle

You sitting "side saddle" in that picture?
Death Valley is an interesting place. I got there one evening at about 2:00am. It was 104 and no hotel rooms. I had to camp in the parking lot. That was one HOT night.

I tried all kinds of position there Rocky. In Death Valley climate your bottom sticks to seat leather as you already know from your trip
