There is only one time when I was almost locked out. I was driving from Death Valley to the Grand Canyon on a Saturday, and came down the hill into Las Vegas around dinnertime. I decided I didn't want to stay in Las Vegas, so I pressed on to Boulder City. Not a single room available in the whole town, something was going on that night. I made it to Kingman and got the last room at the Super 8, by now it was almost 11pm.
