Jul 28, 2014 - Barstow, California to Las Vegas, Nevada (via Hoover Dam)

From Barstow we decided to take a gamble (:-) and do a detour to drive to Las Vegas via the Hoover Dam. That way we could see and walk over the dam, even though we were flying over it in a helicopter the following day. We thought the Hoover dam was very impressive and worth seeing - even if nature abhors a vaccuum - who cares what she thinks? You'll be pleased to know that when we got to our Eygptian themed (don't ask) hotel in Las Vegas, The Luxor, I was implored by the hotel's bathroom management specialists to support their "dedication...

Jul 20, 2014 - Around Town

Today we are kicking back & staying home, the girls are on their Nintendos & its quiet & cool in the 5th-wheel. The past few days we've been dragging the girls all over town, shopping & eating some of the local cuisine....you know like.....Johnny Rockets. LOL ! Took a few photos as we went from one location to another (they are not the best, but its hard to take them from the truck with all the traffic & the buildings are so close together). Its to hot to walk the Strip.

Jul 19, 2014 - Las Vegas, Nevada

We are currently in Las Vegas, Nevada with our two Grand-daughters (Daria & Zoe). They are keeping us company till the 22nd, Rob & Jodi are here in town also (staying on the Stip with friends, for a little R&R). It is hot here, so we're trying to keep most of our activities with the girls inside. We've played a round of miniature golf at King Putts (an indoor - glow in the dark course & I might add, the music was extremely loud). We've eaten out quite a bit, its just to hot to cook in the trailer & I don't expect Pete to stand outside &...

Jun 25, 2014 - We are in Vegas!

Hello and thanks for following our blog! Yesterday went very smoothly. We dropped off our puppy Ramzey in St. Augustine (he will be staying with his Aunt Tracy and Uncle Herbie), then headed to Jacksonville airport. We had a one hour delay in Dallas due to weather, but overall our flights went well. Our girls have only flown once about 5 years ago, so it was exciting for them. Darby entertained the crowd at the airport by playing her ukulele. :) We even got a picture with comedian, Carrot Top at the airport! That was very exciting. Arriving...

Jun 7, 2014 - See ya later Vegas

I haven't done an entry for a couple of days cause we've been so busy trying to fit everything in with very late nights every night. This place is amazing, so much happens here and it wouldn't matter how long you're here for you would never see everything. Every casino has something happening in it. We went to another show the other night - Mike Hammer. He was a magician and also a comedian and he was fantastic, we all had a great time and tickets were only $17 each!! Yesterday, Tracey went on a tour that took him to lots of places where...

Jun 5, 2014 - This place never stops

Vegas is an amazing place, nothing ever stops here. Yesterday we went down to Freemont street which is the older part of Vegas with all the old casinos and hotels. It was fantastic, we spent quite a bit of time there checking out what it used to be like and lots of souvenir shops. On the way back we stopped off at the biggest gift shop in the world. Last night we went the Blue Man Group show. It was absolutely amazing, kept us all mesmerised for the whole show. We were supposed to be half way up the balcony but when we got there they...

Jun 4, 2014 - Goodbye Grand Canyon, Hello Vegas

Yesterday we left the Grand Canyon, I'm still in awe of what a spectacular place it is. We took off down the historic Route 66 again and stopped in a town called Seligman. This is the town that Radiator Springs was modelled on and it was a very cool place. For what was going to be a 10 minute toilet stop and to get a drink turned into an hour and a half. We continued on to the Hoover Dam and wow, that was an incredible place, so hard to comprehend how they would have built that in amongst all the rocks and hills, it is absolutely huge. We...

May 30, 2014 - Las Vegas

On 30th we explored the market places particularly in the north side - the premium market outlet having several branded stores. Evening we went to Aria to experience the great show Cirque du soliel each of the presentation was world class and undoubtedly this show is a great entertainer. During this stay we tried two Indian restaurants Gandhi and Tamba. Restaurants are average however taste of food is ok. Better at Tamba. It is like blessing to get your kind of food in foreign land so all those entrepreneurs who open such joints deserve...

BHUTAN A SHORT VISIT

May 28, 2014 - Las Vegas

On 28th morning three if us landed at Las Vegas. We were picked up at the airport and brought to Hotel Venitian where I had stayed earlier too and we found this large hotel quite good though it was an effort each time to locate your room. Las Vegas is a fun city. We experienced lots of fun. It's called a sin city, however, we could only discover fun.

BHUTAN A SHORT VISIT

May 22, 2014 - Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas...forget sightseeing for right now because we have to address all of our outstanding "blooper" issues with our RV today. Thursday was spent getting new tires and new fender on our tow dolly, and having our windshield replaced on the RV. For those of you who live in Florida, windshield replacements are free as long as you have insurance, which you probably already know. Thank heaven for small favors. Last night we drove downtown past all the Vegas lights and casinos. Let me clarify the "we" driving downtown. It was "me"...
