Jul 17, 2017 - Flight to Las Vegas

We left Waldport this afternoon and drove to Eugene Oregon for our 7:00 PM flight to Las Vegas. We are flying back to Las Vegas with Betty for a few days. Betty’s month with us went by so fast, it’s hard to believe it’s already over. We had a superb time showing her the beautiful Oregon Coast as well as parts of Washington too, this added two new states for her. We will be staying at Betty’s home in Las Vegas for a few days. We will be spending time with family and probably won’t be doing a lot of updates. I will update and let everyone...

Jul 10, 2017 - Cicchis' Journal Chapter 5

It is one week before this years vacation. Today I will start calling hotels and tour guide companies that I have reservations with in order to reconfirm all of the reservations. I do not know if it is necessary these days but I am old school so I will start calling today. One week from today, we will be traveling to Flagstaff, Arizona to visit the Lowell Observatory so I will call the hotel in Flagstaff to reconfirm that reservation and I will call Lowell Observatory to find out if there are any reservations that I need to make for the...

Jul 6, 2017 - Barefoot bohemian bang on buck burning in Vegas...

Managing to negotiate (sweet talk) my way out of the resort fee (wtf), and get the concierge lounge access thrown in free, I decided to stay in a big hotel. Passing up the cheaper alternative of hostel without pool or Hooters! Ouch!! Note to self: when the temperature reaches 111F (42C) must wear shoes for walk to pool! Not that I seen it but apparently there is also a sign up stating you MUST! Who would have thought, while in the concierge lounge ordering the complimentary champagne, the guest standing next to me would comment on my...

Jun 16, 2017 - 801 Breakfast Club -- Alaskan Cruise

We left Las Vegas and flew into Portland, Oregon, got the rental car (only $115 for the week), and checked into the Shilo Inn & Suites @ $89.00 a day, including a daily sit down breakfast off a menu (in lieu of buffet style). Friend Duncan picked us up and took us to his mansion house for drinks and catching up. Duncan and wife, Cheryl, took us out to a great dinner at a Thai restaurant. Got back to the room and passed out; had a good sleep. Today, after I picked up Julieann from church, we went sightseeing and ended up at another Time...

Jun 10, 2017 - Shopping - dinner & show

With 6 others in tow it was off for some shopping - dance shoes, healthy whole foods market, electronics and browsing. Loved the Tofu Teriyaki at the Whole Foods market. Ticket booth browsing - sorted. With tickets for an Italian dinner in the Venetian and the Le Reve show at the Wynn it was time to head back to the hotel for a short feet up. Dinner at Casanova and then onto the show. Comfy seats :-) I can understand why Le Reve is rated 'top show' in Vegas. SPECTACULAR Walked a few kms today.

Firstly up to the Level 107 Lounge bar at the top of the Stratosphere tower for 'Happy hour'. Chocolate Martin's, light snacks and a great view. Then onto Freemont Street for the light show. Slept well that night.

Jun 2, 2017 - It's VEGAS, Baby

After numerous delays (Delta) we finally arrived in Las Vegas just before midnight. Delta was nice enough to upgrade us to First Class (I don't know why; just happy they did. Free vodka always tastes better than any I pay for). After finding our bags, we found the spot to wait for the trip to the “off site” car rental @ only $700 for a month’s rental), but stood in line for an hour to get the rental car. We finally checked into the Wyndham Vacation Resort at almost 2AM. This unit has more than a lot of apartments: full kitchen, LR w/flat...

Apr 25, 2017 - LA to Las Vegas - NOT COMPLETE

Early checkout from our not so delightful hotel. It did the job and was in a convenient location as far as public transport goes so that was an advantage. It's our first Uber experience today so we are leaving early to make sure we get to the Greyhound depot in plenty of time. Were also not sure how bad the traffic will be and if Google maps time estimates take this into account. All worked well...Maria, our driver arrived within 5 minutes, the trip took the time expected (we travelled in the car pool lane and then express lane) and we had...

Apr 10, 2017 - A windy drive to Las Vegas

The drive to Las Vegas was one of those through the middle of the country. Once we got to Dallas and were delayed by the strong winds in west Texas, gave us a chance to spend some more time with Mikes Aunt and Uncle. We finally go tired of waiting and went up into the panhandle of Texas and headed west on I-40. The winds were still strong, 25-30 mph but at least they were blowing straight into us. Great for the gas mileage. Some of the attached pictures give you and idea just how little there is from Texas up to Las Vegas. We arrived and...

Apr 3, 2017 - Las Vegas

We went into Las Vegas yesterday and did some sight seeing, we had bunny with us so we couldn't get out much. Today we left her in the camper with the air conditioner on and went in to see the sights and do some gambling. We were doing OK, winning some and loosing some. Then Cindy hit on the poker machine with 5 of a kind and maximum bet. She cashed out real quick and we left there. Next we went to a casino that the lady from the campground had told us about. It was also good and they had a lunch buffy. With me being a veteran we got the...

Mar 8, 2017 - Frank and Jackie

This afternoon we drove to Las Vegas so I could catch a flight to Cincinnati. Our plan was to pick up friends (we were spending the night with them) as they came in to the airport from a trip to Colorado. Great I thought. We can find our way around the airport so getting there in the morning will be easier. Hah! We got there at rush hour with me and the gypsy and maps trying to direct Don in to the correct terminal to pick up our friends. After 2 tries, and a text from Frank saying they would be late, we found a place to eat. No point in...
