Las Vegas, NV High 98 Low 74
The main reason that we stop in Las Vegas is to be able to visit with our good friends, Steve and Peter. Steve and I have been friends for 46 years. Peter has been fighting a battle with cancer and is winning which is fantastic news for us.
Since we are not big gamblers I am always on the lookout for other things for us to see while we are here. However, there is one experience that I can’t pass up and that is a trip downtown to Fremont Street.
It’s a world that is so foreign to us and yet I love every minute of it. Lots of nearly naked men and women of all ages and sizes. Definitely no pictures. They will pose with you so you can take a picture with your own camera and then they want you to pay them for posing.
Lots of people, looking up taking pictures overhead.
There are all kinds of street acts from dancers to statues to one of the best sax players. Also beggars (mostly wounded vets) and everything in between.
Sidney and Jim took time out to win a fortune – NOT!
There is a zipline but I couldn’t convince Jim to try it out. He didn’t want to ride it in the daylight and by the time it got dark, we were ready to go home. You start out in the middle of this slot machine.
Also, overhead is a huge theater that shows music videos and different scenes to really loud music.
After we rode the High Roller we walked down the Linq to the Flamingo.
Todd – this is a Ford worth owning.
Here’s a camper for that will only cost you $100,000.
The birds at the Flamingo are really pretty.
Sunday we’ll do laundry and watch the NASCAR race and Monday we head north to Alamo.
