Ahhhh!! A nice hotel again, finally got some sleep. From Williams, AZ it’s a few hours drive to Vegas. I made it a little longer by stopping in Kingman for a Starbucks, then Hoover Dam. Vegas is a funky place, I’ve only been here a few times for work. It’s a little overwhelming for me, not really a gambler. The couple times I’ve been here I’ve seen some great shows though – Elton John, Brittney Spears, the PBR (Pro Bull Riders) finals. That’s how I found this place, South Point, was an extra night I stayed once where the MGM tripled in price for that night.
South Point is off of the main strip, with coffee in the rooms. One thing about Vegas strip is no coffee??? You have to do the $10 walk of shame and stand in line at the Starbucks. I had to find the solution to that after my first trip here, I have my own little folding kettle with the pour over travel mug.
On one shuttle ride back to the airport, I was chatting with a woman from England who comes here every few years, just to Vegas, of all places? If it wasn’t for work, Vegas wouldn’t be on my list of places to go. From the Bay Area, it’s pretty cheap to hop on a plane, stay here just to see a show. This also seems to be the gateway for the fellow tourists I saw throughout my trip.
Hoover Dam was a great stop, glad I did that. It’s free parking if you keep driving over to the AZ side of the dam, the first parking lot in NV is $10. While I was still in the parking lot, I overheard these couples talking about how we need another president like Hoover to build something like this again. Trump is the guy who’s going to get things like this done again, everyone needs to get over the Russia investigation. Look at what he’s done so far for creating jobs in America and taking it away from China.
Admittedly, I hate Trump. I barf in my mouth a little thinking he is our president and that this is what America has come to, a new Jerry Springer episode every day. Stop reading now, I’m about to rant. Obviously, Fox news didn’t report in their 45′ RV’s that Trump just created jobs for China regarding ZTE that day. Then, with a little twist of their heads they can take a look at the water line to see it’s a major drought still. Comparing Hoover to Trump is insane (asinine?). Saying he’s going to build something like this is even more insane. How can someone look at this masterpiece of engineering and give Trump credit for it…at all?? My trip has been Trump free so far, mostly because I’ve been listening to music with no TV this whole time.
One thing I did hear was his pull-out from Iran, I had to check the news because the gas prices sky-rocketed overnight. How is it creating jobs when people can’t afford to put $100 worth of gas in their trucks to get to work? I always thought the big crash started with the gas prices and tumbled from there. People put together a house of cards financially, then the gas prices went to $5. Here it comes again, have fun in that RV while it lasts.
