We left Flagstaff a few days early in order to avoid getting stuck in another snowfall.
Laughlin, NV was our destination. Upon arrival, we discovered our casino of choice changed hands and no longer permits camping in their parking lot. We ended up at the Golden Nugget where stayed the last two nights at zero cost.
The parking lot also doubles as a junk yard for the casino, so in addition to a couple RVs, some dumpsters and storage containers, there were some discarded letters that would be cool to salvage.
**Note: To find free casino camping on Campendium, search the city or state of your choice, then select the “free” filter under price, and the “casino” filter under the recreation.
