Viva Las Vegas!

As Elvis sang!

We booked into the Road Runner RV Park on the Boulder Highway for one week. The weather is great (hot) and we will be able to finish up our tans before we head into less welcoming climes. This is our new go-to RV park in Vegas. It is reasonable at $16 per night for the first three nights and $20 per night for the next four. They have a cheaper weekly rate of $89 but that is for a smaller back in space and you have to pay electric on top of that. Electric is included with our daily rate and with the air conditioner running 12 - 16 hours a day, that is a good deal!

We downloaded and printed a list of free lounge acts in town and will take a couple in. We will also go out for dinner a couple of nights. If we spring for a paid show it will probably be Bob Anderson doing his impression of Frank Sinatra. Even these tickets are $90 each but can be found on one of the half price sites for... half price. One free show I want to see is a "Big Elvis" impersonator who they say puts on a great show at Harrah's Las Vegas Piano Bar.

This afternoon we went to Sam's Town Casino just down the road. We signed up in their Gamblers Club and fed a few slots. Norma won $73 and bought us two buffet dinners. I lost $10 and bought nothing. Norma accumulated enough points on her gamblers card to qualify for a "gift", her choice of a baseball cap with "Sam's Town" on it or a cute little stuffed puppy. The puppy is sitting up beside the TV set. She also qualified for a cooler bag full of ice tea which I will dig into tomorrow. We walked around the full square block casino at least twice and are now home watching three taped episodes of The Good Wife.


  1. You having fun there in Vegas we just might get back there again some day.

  2. Hmmm, perhaps you can hook up with Kevin and Ruth who will be flying into Vegas today.
