Sep 9, 2014 - Day's 3 & 4, Las Vegas

After some of the worst overnight thunderstorms I have ever seen, we left Phoenix and travelled through Arizona to Hoover Dam, where we crossed into Nevada and then onto Vegas where we arrived around 3pm on Monday. With the weather in Las Vegas atrocious and the pool closed, we had to make do with inside entertainment and boy did we find some great little bars. Pistol and I enjoyed a few drinks in the Golden Nugget before heading over to the Freemont for some $2 beers and then decided to take a walk a little down the road where we found a...

Aug 12, 2014 - Another night in Vegas

After the exciting trip by Helicopter out to the canyon we spent the rest of the afternoon exploring the hotels at the North end of the strip that we missed the last time. Richard then went out with his friend to spend an evening in the casinos, and Ash and I went out for a nice dinner together. Being old we were nicely tucked up in bed by 10 ready for an early start the following day. As for Richard...

Aug 10, 2014 - Vegas baby!

So after a big breakfast at the hotel we loaded up the car and headed south to Vegas. It is amazing how much luggage the QP will take! We were making amazing time and had an average speed showing of 118 kph which was pretty impressive until we hit roadworks just an hour outside of Vegas which slowed us for a hour. Once we were checked into the two suites at the Encore, we did a dry run with Rich driving the QP to the Airport and then the Excalibur Hotel as he was picking a friend from University up and driving her to her hotel in style.

Aug 5, 2014 - The Strip

The last time I was in Vegas was during my Big Trip in 2010. Again, I had a 2 night stay so one day for exploring. I decided that time (I'm not a gambler, though I used to enjoy Keno when the losses occurred slowly) to instead do the loop through Red Rock Canyon, visit the darling little community of Blue Diamond to see the wild burros walking through the yards, and visit a ranch that once was owned by Howard Hughes. It was a wonderful day. Paul and Dottie, my forum friends, had recommended Red Rock Canyon and I got some great pictures that...

Aug 4, 2014 - Boots Misunderstood

Good news - my Check Engine light did not light and I had no troubles driving to Las Vegas. I did, though, find out that I could use a new set of windshield wipers. Got caught in a downpour which, fortunately, only lasted for 3 minutes. Boy! The stories on the news of cars and trucks getting caught in the flash floods is horrifying! It's the monsoon season here. I thought I was in the clear...behind the tornados and pre-hurricane. But as the subject of this posting suggests, poor Boots misunderstood me when I said we were going to Kansas....

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 &...

Jul 4, 2014 - Hoover Dam, Lake Mead & Las Vegas July 4th, 2014

The first stop of the day was to Hoover Dam. It was packed with tourist and we couldn't take Duke with us so basically it didn't cost us a dime (which was nice) as we drove across the dam and took some pictures while in amazement of the new bridge. It was awesome and I show some pictures of it. After that we took a very short drive over to Lake Mead and boy was it down really low. I was surprised to see how far out the boat docks were and how low the lake level really was. Still a great site to see but I did say a few prayers for them to...

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...
