Mojave Freeway Nipton Road to Las Vegas, Nevada

Can you believe Alamo ran out of rental cars? That’s like KFC running out of chicken… which ironically happened to me before as well. There was literally a line of people waiting for cars. Did I mention that this Alamo was in Las Vegas? I could understand if this was a small town in Alaska, but in Vegas. How does a rental car company run out of cars in Vegas? Needless to say I waited 60 minutes in the freezing cold before cars started trickling in. Lucky for me I was one of the first in line. After being offered and denying a few gas guzzlers, I settle for this Chevy Malibu. I was absolutely amazed at how comfortable this car was. This was the first car that I’ve driven 5 hours straight without feeling any discomfort. I felt like I could have driven this car forever. This Chevy Malibu ended up being excatly what I need. It lacked a little bit of horse power but a perfect car for traveling.
