The only thing we left in Vegas was a fair amount of money. But thenOne time we were staying in Las Vegas, we were talking to a chap at
that's what Vegas is there for. I played a 1 cent slot machine for an
hour until my dollar ran out. Mrs. Johnny invested considerably more on
the bar who was playing a tabletop video poker game. This was around
6.00pm and apparently he was $120 up. When we passed the bar the next
morning on our way to breakfast, he was still sitting in the same seat
so I (jokingly) asked if he had been there all night and how much he
had now won. Apparently he quite literally had been there all night,
but had now lost around $150. we shook our heads sadly and went on
our way. Actually, my wife generally wins on the tabletop poker
games, her most impressive winning streak being a huge $15 from an
initial stake of $2.
Vegas is not my kind of place, I'm afraid. But we'll go back to the areaYou have hit the nail on the head there. My wife and I have been to
as there's a lot of great places to visit nearby.
Las Vegas several times, purely because it is a convenient place to
fly to from the UK, and accommodation is so cheap. We usually stay a
couple of nights to get over the flight, then pick up a rental car,
find a Wal-Mart or similar to stock up on charcoal, beer, steaks,
etc., before heading off into the staggeringly spectacular wilds of
Utah with our tent, usually doing a huge loop and ending up in Los
Angeles to stay with my wife's brother. We once stayed at the "Border
Inn" right on the Nevada/Utah border, the border going quite literally
right through the bar next door. All the slot machines were crammed
at the Nevada end of the bar!!!
However her brother has now moved to Tennessee, but by coincidence we
were saying just this morning that we really miss camping in the US
desert so next time we visit him we must start off with another
camping trip to the Southwest (probably starting in Las Vegas) and
then fly to Atlanta to see him.
Having said that this would probably mean starting in Las Vegas, we
would like to see more of New Mexico so it could be Albuquerque.
