    We arrived at 8:47 am Central. 6:47 am Vegas time. Since we couldn’t pace ourselves we are way too early for our room at AZ Charlie’s. What to do???

    I just got caught up; fabulous road trip photos. I hate bridges and tunnels and felt a bit anxious looking at your tunnel photos.

    Would love to do a drive like that. We pulled our fifth wheel from Ontario to Key West and back. Have never driven that far near LV. Epic road trip!

    We left Hills MN at 12:12 pm CST on Thursday November 15 and arrived in Vegas at 8:47 am CST on Friday November 16. We got far too excited, pushed too hard, and arrived much earlier than we planned, so we stopped and checked out the Eureka Casino in Mesquite. Not much to report. There was about six people in there. They all had us in age by at least 15 years. As the Mrs. reported – she won on the KISS machine. Did not stay any longer than that.

    Decided we should eat at the Wrangler Grill in the Silver Nugget - it was cheap, the food was excellent and the service was awesome. I had the chicken and waffles. I have never had this before but have been intrigued by the combination and wanted to try it. The chicken may be the best I have ever eaten and the waffles were good. It is hard to screw up something with butter and syrup though. The wife had eggs, hashbrowns and toast and said her meal was good. Used our 50% off food comp. I am not sure how we get a food comp. We usually only play $20.00 through the machines when we are there. The wife got also $3.00 free play. I lost my normal $20.00 on slots and then the wife played her$3.00 and won $19.75 - down a whole quarter!

    Next up to Jerrys Nugget to place sports bets and get coffee and VP for the missus. 2 cups of coffee and $20.00 lost at VP she was good to go. I put in $490.00 in football and homer bets. We will see this weekend how that goes.

    Off to ARIZONA CHARLIES DECATUR by 10 AM Vegas Time. Guess what? They had our room ready! Great start for our stay, as I need that room. I fell asleep right away but Mrs. V found she could not sleep. After a shower and a nap, I felt good so I went and found Mrs. V. She was slotting and lost $20.00. We were hungry and hit the Sourdough Café for supper. BLT for her. Appetizer for me. Good food. I tried to use the food comp but only good for one time comp. It is a $45.00 food comp. Our bill was $23.00. We will use it tomorrow at Ron’s Steakhouse. I’m going to get my comps worth that way. After supper we went to the sports book and picked up some parlay cards and came up to the room to write this and fill out parlay cards.
