Anyone care to share driving stories to and from Las Vegas (good or bad). I usually fly from Los Angeles to Las Vegas but once or twice a year I would drive especially when airfare is too high. I remember a bad experience once driving home (2005) in a 1997 Ford Ranger and the air conditioning no longer worked in 105 degree heat at about the Cal/Nev stateline. Just as I passed Whiskey Pete and Buffalo Bill before going up a long hill incline my A/C stopped working. For the next 2.5 hours until I go thru Victorville it was tortuous without A/C. Once past Victorville and going down the Cajon Pass the temps dropped and relief was on the way.
