As long as it’s in the Spring or Fall. I was stationed at Nellis AFB and remember my boots soles melting to the runway.
I remeber that - was there from 70-74. "Hot Dry Summers"! Like a blast furnace in your face, through an open window. Not to mention the possibility of a sand storm where you could not see the car 5 ft. in front of you. I was at the bomb dump and flight line those years.

I was in CE, Electronic Controls. A coworker and I were put in charge of the alarm systems for the bunkers that housed the nukes. We were told not to touch anything, not even the spider webs. If a system in a bunker went down we just told the SP’s to contact whoever managed the nukes to move them to an operational bunker. Best job ever.

Bad neighborhood Returning after dark a security guard road his bicycle beside us returning to our rig.
NOISY the freeway (Elevated) has an exit ramp right there.
EMS/Fire is next door (other side of a brick wall
As is the central bus terminal.

Since I'm used to traffic and EMS/Fire noises. Did not bother me (Our house was 2 block off a primary multi-lane highway and since the toot of a siren blocks it up like you can't believe mour STREET was the primary for EMS/Fire)

Pick-A-Part is a junkyard where you bring your own tools and remove the parts you want from the junked cars. I assume a Pick-A-Part rally is something similar, maybe a swap meet in the parking lot of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway north of town? I know they rent out their parking lots for dealer based RV shows, etc. between speedway events.
