I'm just jealous because I want to go to Vegas.
Aw man, that sigs bout to bring a tear :hmm:
see I'm not really much of a gambler anyway
I'd be pissed if i ended up dropping $100 or more in a frackin casino
thankfully I spent so much time working I had little opportunity to run amuck. i can gladly say I did nothing to contribute to the expansion of the city
here's the boring conclusion of one of my whole 2 days off.
A buddy of mine that happened to be down there for the same show, who just happens to be staying at a hotel - one hotel from me comes by with some Vodka and beer and wants to go to the Stratosphere. we went up - rode the rides (1,000 feet in the air - YEAH this big space needle had RIDES on top of it)
anyway, we just walked the strip with stops at the Flamingo, Ceasars, Treasure Island and stopped at the Bellagio. Back to the room
that might not sound like a whole lot , but walking from the stratosphere to Bellagio can take half a day
and then you're still only halfway down the strip
started at the Venetian and ended at Mandalay Bay with stops at New York New York, Excalibur, and Luxor
and I was done with it
back to the room
the Strip is definitely interesting, but a block or 2 in either direction of it and you're in a totally different town it feels
blah blah blah
and it looks like I'm gonna be booked to do this show (which happens twice) from now on
hopefully I continue to reap from the town instead of contribute to it
it's all business
the view from 888 feet on top of the Stratosphere
the Stratosphere from the ground at the extreme end (opposite the Airport / Mandalay Bay / MGM / Luxor) of the strip
the "needle" at the top is actually a ride. it's one of those "SuperShot" / "Freefall" doodads and to the left is this crane thing that slides you off the edge and drops
with nothing to stop you but a spring no bigger than one found in your mattress and a rubber bushing the size of a beer can
i think my heart stoped..thats nuts
