Aug 9, 2005 - Arrived in Vegas

Hassle free journey to get here. Spent our daily budget in the first half an hour in Vegas. Katie and Matt got here early so met us pretty much straight away in the Hotel Bar (one of them) Hotel is amazing if cheesy. Went to see the Belagio fountains Tuesday night...they are amazing. Went to Paris and had a drink, also stopped off in New York for a bit of live music. The MGM Grande is AMAZING, went there for a drink too. Everything else was a bit of a daze after 20 hours travelling and no sleep. We have taken loads of cool photos already...

Aug 8, 2005 - Kingman to Las Vegas

Had a bit of a lay in and a big breakfast (Dennys of course) in preparation for Vegas. Left Kingman at about 11.00 to get there for check in at 2pm. Decided would be cool to drive down the strip on the Harley and video it. Not such a great idea, took us an hour just to drive down the strip! (The main road in Vegas for those who haven't been). Was gridlocked - and in 100' heat not so much fun! Still, should be good on the camcorder, although after all that the battery ran out just before we got to the end! Checked in and left a message for...

Aug 2, 2005 - Viva Las Vegas, Nevada - One of the Man Made Wonders of the World!

Viva Las Vegas!!!!! We arrived here and had dinner at one of the Casinos before going on a City tour. This place is just crazy. I love it!!!! Once again words cannot describe this place and it has to be experienced to be believed. It is literally spare no expense here when it comes to the hotels and casinos. Saw all the well known places including the Bellagio, MGM Grand, The Venetian, Ceasers Palace, The Luxor etc. We then went to the Graceland Chapel and had a mock wedding. They married a couple of the clowns on the tour (no I wasn't one...

Jul 30, 2005 - Las Vegas

So Vegas isn't for everyone it turns out, after a couple of hours here we've decided to cut our stay from 3 to 1 night. Instead we're going to rent another car and drive to the Grand Canyon via the Valley of Fire and the Hoover Dam. More to follow when I can be a bit more positive...

Jul 27, 2005 - Utah, Arizona and Nevada

Stayed overnight in the Mohave Desert in a little town called Barstow. It was 109o F at 9pm! Driving across in the daytime was so.... Hot, the poor little car was struggling up the hills so we were finding it tough when we had to turn off the air conditioning to help it get up the hills. As we crossed into the state of Nevada, low and behold a casino was the first thing on that side of the border. We drove through Las Vegas on the "strip" but as we only covered a couple of miles in an hour we decided to pass on up to the canyon lands and...

Jul 14, 2005 - Las Vegas Oasis Campground Site #441

Arrived in Vegas by 12:00. An easy drive for me as Dan did all the driving. This is a lovely campground. A far cry from the National parks we have been staying at. Also the price is four times as much. We set up in no time and then went across the street to the swimming pool. Spent about hour and half talking to a couple from North Carolina. We stayed in the pool the whole time. The temperature here is 113. Ed and Joan Fortin picked us up at 5:30. We went to Harrods to hear Ed sing then onto the Rio for dinner. What a nice change Vegas is...

Jul 14, 2005 - Here we are again

Hello from the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas. We decided that the wives deserved a day of luxury and pampering....sweedish masages included. More on Day seven in the next update. Day 3 turned into a day of more rain in Oregon but we made it to California and expected the weather to improve. No more plastic bags on my feet and Ann did not even wear her rain suit, just her leathers. Are we turning into true 'bikers'? Day 4 was spectular. Great weather. Started on the California coast, then inland through the redwoods, then into the California...

Jul 3, 2005 - Las Vegas

After months in Central America to say Vegas was a culture shock is a severe understatement! Vegas - What can you say! It was great to get here and throw out most of the grubby backpacker clothes that we have lived in for months and hit the shops. Just walking around here is an experience, can't say we had any luck at the tables though...

Jun 22, 2005 - Gotta love the Vegas!

Crossing the international dateline was a bizarre experience as we arrived in L.A. before we left Fiji, making the day from hell in Nadi airport on Sunday happen all over again effectively! Second time around it was a better day but still involved airports, planes and baggage! We spent about 3 hours at LAX before getting a flight to Vegas late afternoon. We had chosen a hotel so we came straight here to Excalibur on The Strip in a taxi. Check in was a nightmare but eventually we got into our room after over 60 hours in transit! Vegas is...

Jun 17, 2005 - Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon

I had to make a detour to the bright lights of Las Vegas and the majesty of the Grand Canyon! I organised a return flight from Reno to Las Vegas and spent two and a half days in the area. There was so much to do! What I experienced is only a taste of the multitude of things one can do in the region! Las Vegas was amazing - bright lights, plush casinos, slot machines galore! Once again, I stayed at a hostel (USA Hostels) on Fremont Street. And once again, it was in a bit of a dodgy area. I ended up catching a few taxis to avoid walking the...

Jun 15, 2005 - Viva Las Vegas! Change map to California and Nevada.

Away again to Las Vegas to stay overnight. Very interesting drive. Really saw what the desert was like. Nothing for miles and miles around just a long straight 6 line freeway all the way. 80 mile an hour plus and lots of traffic. We would be driving along and up ahead we could see a high rise. As we got closer it was a casino with lots of bright lights and a shop here and there. Then nothing else again. One part of it there I thought I was seeing things. A shopper's delight. Factory Outlets in the middle of nowhere. 100 in fact. See the...
