    Thanks for the TR and welcome to the Board!
    I don't think I'd survive that drive!

    Actually the farthest west I've ever driven is probably close to your stomping grounds, mr.vegas.

    Glad someone else appreciates the war zone called Jerry's Nugget, everyone should experience this place at least once. I found the waitstaff very friendly/efficient and one usually gets a lot of play for their money on the VP and slot machines....at least I did
     
    Said I wasnt going back this year but you know how that goes

    you are right 93 octane very good staff food is always good and cheap and the odds for parleys are higher and that is why i do most of my sports betting at jerrys nugget also bingo is petty good not good craps odds tho.
