To celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary and my wife’s 30th birthday, we left the kids with our family and drove the Coupe to Las Vegas for a long weekend. I prepared for a variety of potential issues with the Coupe, but we were very fortunate to have none at all. The Coupe was an excellent road trip car, and very comfortable for the 5 hour drive. Not that I should be surprised as we bought my first M Coupe from Rowland Heights, CA and drove it home. The bulk of the drive to Las Vegas is a 2 lane highway through scenic desert with lots of opportunity to enjoy the drive. Friday on the way up to Vegas though, we were stuck behind a caravan of RVs that were poking along 5-10 under the speed limit. As soon as there was a passing lane open, we easily blasted past the slow traffic. We stopped for some quick photos in Nothing, AZ, mostly because of the irony of the name. We had a great trip, and a good warm up for our drive to Dorkfest in August!
I wish there would have been an opportunity for photos of the Coupe on the Las Vegas Strip, but once we arrived the Coupe remained parked on the 11th floor of the parking garage, safely tucked away. Not to mention, there really aren’t any easy places to park on The Strip, aside from the hotel valet lots. I don’t valet my Coupe. 😉
