    Shia was really hoping you'd draw a kicker on that one. DO IT!

    Yes that is bacon. And the sauce is sweet, so it may be the same. Tasty!

    You'd think those cliched tats would keep people 6 feet at bay on their own. And oh shit, just realized I recognize that purple shirt.

    I dropped three hundys at craps at the Cal. $10 minimum. Double odds, since 1975.

    Craps at El Cortez was abysmal. I dropped 11 hundys at their table. They had two tables open. $10 minimum with 10x odds.

    At the King’s Bar inside Four Queens now, licking my wounds.

    FSE is lively tonight.

    We asked. If accompanied by an adult. Funny thing is a person can go down the street and enter Fremont casino and walk out on the Fremont street through the exit doors by passing the security. :)
    Not real rocket science.

    Hi, friends. Did you miss me? Today was field trip day. I got my permission slip signed well in advance, I promise.

    I have been to Vegas around 60 times and not once did I visit Valley of Fire State Park. So today, I drove over there (about a 65 minute drive) and got to my first trailhead around noon. It was perfect weather for some hiking in southern Nevada today; that's a rare thing to be able to say in June. Today's high temperature was only 90 degrees, and it was almost ten degrees cooler than that when I started at noon. Wind was constant, with some gusts up to 30 mph. I stayed for just over four hours.

    I did three short hikes: Fire Wave, White Domes, and Rainbow Vista. I enjoyed all three. These are mostly sandy trails, so be prepared to shake sand out of your shoes and socks after each hike.

    Here are a few photos from my time at VoF:

    The colors in the rock were pretty neat.

    I'm not certain, but I want to believe that's a trail made by a lizard. I saw several lizards on the trails today.

    It is 7:09pm in Vegas and I haven't gambled yet today. I guess I better go change that. I'll provide more updates if anything interesting happens.
