Mar 12, 2015 - Las Vegas

Today was our "free" day to explore Las Vegas. After a leisurely start we wandered through the maze of the ground floor of our hotel 'Circus Circus'. With over 2,000 rooms there were a lot of people around, but also the idea seemed to be to keep you walking around and around, hopefully to spend money in the food outlets, gift shops or gaming machines. We found all the casino hotels are like this. Out into the sunshine of the day we walked up Sunset strip taking in the sights, sounds and experience that this unique city gives. We...

We drove down to the Las Vegas Strip this afternoon and parked at the Paris Casino. We walked the Strip to the MGM Grand to see inside what it was like. This has to be the most impressive casino we have been in as for elegant interior. It is nice because as you come in off the street you are in the heart of the gambling floor. Don’t need to take elevators or wonder where the gambling area is. It was something to see all the people sitting around in the sport betting area watching the big screen TV’s betting on horse races, basketball games,...

Mar 11, 2015 - Bryce Canyon to Las Vegas

There was a wonderful sunrise this morning on way back to room after breakfast. The temperature below freezing and the dripping snow melting from the roof yesterday had frozen into icicles. Took Highway 89 south back towards Kanab then turned off towards Zion National Park. Wild deer and wild turkey were around as well as buffalo farms. Buffalo can weigh up to a ton and run at 30mph. Zion NP Utah is 10-15 times larger than Bryce and is geologically older at 208 million years. The East entrance of the park off the Mount Carmel Highway,...

Today was as down day for us. Candy did take the truck and get it washed but that was about it, just cleaning out the bays of some junk I don’t need. We have decided to stay here another day because we are not sure where we want to go next. This is a hard life not knowing what we want to do the next day.

Mar 9, 2015 - Las Vegas Nevada

I need to say that it is appalling to wander thru the RV Park and people have their A/C’s running. Sure is rough to be here in the sun. Our journey today took us to the Fremont Street Experience, also known as Glitter Gulch. We waited until evening to visit so we could take in all the lights. On the way there we did view one of several Wedding Chapels that are all over town waiting for the short romances to end up married. As you approach the entrance of the Fremont Street Experience there is a large sign announcing that you have arrived....

Mar 8, 2015 - Las Vegas Nevada

We had the Red Rock RV Wash come over today to wash the motorhome, while he was doing the motorhome we had him do the roof since it hasn’t been done for a long time. He did inspect the roof joints and reported everything looked good. Stayed at the motorhome and watched the Kobalt 400 race on TV today, it wasn’t blacked out here because they had 100,000 people at the race so I think it may have been a sellout. Glad to see Stewart Haas Racing’s Kevin Harvick won. The rest of the team didn’t do so well but that happens. We went to Sam’s Town...

Mar 7, 2015 - Las Vegas Nevada

Moving day again, Ray and Carol will start for home and we will relocate to the Las Vegas RV Resort. The rate at the Las Vegas RV Resort is about half the cost of where we are staying and we plan on staying for a few more days so it is time to save some money. Don’t want to run out of money and can’t get back home sometime, it would be rough to get stranded out here in the warm sun and blooming flowers. We said our goodbye’s which I wish they could have stayed another week with us, they are a fun couple to be with and I enjoy talking with...

Ray and Carol took their motorhome back to Camping World to get the repairs done, if the mechanic showed up today. He did show up so work started on their coach. They returned to the campground so Ray could lay down, so Carol, Candy and I took a trip down Las Vegas Blvd. to see the Pawn Stars shop. The strip is interesting because you go from open spaces to the very fancy areas where the casinos are to the slums, which is where the Pawn Stars store is located. The place looked like a dump but people were lined up to get inside. We decided...

Mar 5, 2015 - Las Vegas Nevada

Ray and Carol needed to take their motorhome over to Camping World because that miss he had in the engine came back on the drive from Laughlin to Vegas. They must get this fixed before their trip to Idaho. They had an appointment at 8:00 AM, they got disconnected and drove over to Camping World and dropped the motorhome off. They left it to go get a new spare tire for their jeep which had went bad on the way to Laughlin. After returning to Camping World, they were informed that the mechanic didn’t come in so the motorhome couldn’t be...

Mar 4, 2015 - Las Vegas Nevada

We drove to the famous Las Vegas strip to visit some of the casinos. Our first stop was the Paris Casino which has the Eiffel Tower as the focal point, you can see if for blocks. The entire complex is huge with the gambling floor, a mall with very expensive shops, and the hotel. It was kind of fun going around seeing the different stuff and people gambling there money away. Next we crossed over to the Bellagio Casino. There are walk bridges over Las Vegas Blvd for the people to get back and forth. If they didn’t have these people would be...

Mar 2, 2015 - Ready for racing & Race Questions

Well hi folks. After a 7 hr drive in rain and drizzle from Phoenix to Vegas we safely arrived and set up the rig for 4 days and a wee bit of wagering at Sam's Town and other fine establishments. Felt good to be moving after the winter of sitting in one spot. Rig was ready I think as well, it is built to move. Departed out of Phoenix a different way this time and it was excellent by passing Sun City and its 16 miles of stop lights. Rained all nite and weather is cool today with forecast to improve all week with sun and temps up to 75F for...
