now noting the bare rim, did you loose the whole friggin tire?!?!?!?!?!?!????
We've blown out a couple tires over the years. And we'll pull off the freeway to change them. Assuming of course there is an off ramp in the next couple miles. I am more procative about replacing them now.
Also saw the fresh water tank on the ground. nice. The joys of RV ownership. :Don

Yep, Karol thought she heard a noise and then the car behind us passed and pointed for us to pull over. We slowed down and crossed the rumble strip immediately then got out to find no tire remnants and the mangled rim resting on the asphalt.

I set about calmly putting on the spare while Karol frantically tried to help where she really had no business helping. I told her to take this pic, kinda like telling a father to boil water when his wife goes into labor. It wasn't nearly as much of a time suck for her as I had hoped.

from teh kids.
So she arranged the babysitting, and we weaded out to vegas fri am. We did some shopping, lounging by the pool, saw DaM, the fountains, and hung out on the strip.
But Sun we headed over to REI. Yes there are closer REI's to me, but this REI is right off Charsleton, and as it turned out 2 blocks from our hotel. And this REI had 7 different guidebooks on RR, while mine had none. Otherwise you could barely tell the difference. Other than picking up the book, didn't kill any time at REI. From there headed over to RR. Really didn't have much time to explore the are, had to hit the road back home. But at least now I can say I've been there.*





*Spent half an hour at the over look shooting pics.
I must say the strip is kinda zoo. Parking at the Flamingo was a pain. Walking down the strip a half a mile took forever. It wasn't quite elbow to elbow/shoulder to shoulder. But quite crowded. Too short of time away.
Otherwise a good trip.

My younger brother is going to Vegas for an MLG (Major League Gaming) tournament and tried to get me to go along. Fuck that. I doubt I will ever set foot in that city. It is all that makes me twitchy in this world.

Don't know dude. The climbing there is pretty fucking sweet.

I've been there three times, and each time I've stayed at the Suncoast Casino. I've stayed there because it's relatively cheap and pretty close to the Loop (15 min and you're at the parking lot). I've never, ever dropped a penny or more on any slot machine, on a show, on anything that's "vegas related." Not interested in that city at all, but it's damn worth it for the climbing. (actually, I stayed in a time share one of those times).
We stayed right next to there at the Marriott. And yea, right next to the Red Rock loop. Well off the strip, and the zoo that it is.
Give me the 411. how where the rooms and pool at the sun coast? Cause if they are nice and the rates are great, maybe the place to stay.

Can't compare to the Marriott, but I think they were good rooms (as in, quite comfortable, clean, spacious, and with good bathrooms). Nothing to complain about at all. Always quiet. The pool and the hot tub are pretty nice, too, but both are standard. The restaurants downstairs were adequate but not great. The easy thing is that the side door doesn't leave you walking through too much of the casino on the way to the elevator.

The views are relatively nice, too, depending on where your room is.

I think weekends there they are about $150/night and weekday they are about $35/night.

I think it's main business is the golf course.

OK.
Now I'm getting suncoast banner ads...

I never get banner ads. wooo!
Banner ads at the top of the pages, knot two b confused with pop ups.
No pop ups for me. Now if you got no banner ads, I am impressed.
course I may be behind on the tech curve...

no banners, ever...and I have no idea what I'm doing either.

next time, don't teach her how to use the camera until a time like this, then hand her the camera and the manual at the same time.

the Georgia O'Keefe museum is well worth the visit - and you may be surprised by her urban, non-floral art from back when she was first starting out. I bought two prints of that period and love them.
