Vegas is my love, I love going, love the atmosphere, love everything about it. Having said that, I am considering a different type of vacation this year. Here is the thoughts and thinking. I have gone to Vegas the last 4-5 years and even made 2 trips in 2019. I have not had any luck and have lost thousands, way more than I should have and in reality could afford to lose. My bills are paid, I have food and shelter so I did not cut into my living expenses, just more of my savings than Id like to see go. In addition to that, I feel like there is so much to see and do in in this great country. This past summer, I left my job and was going to go drive semi, I went to Northern Wisconsin for training and on my off time I discovered the Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan and what an amazing place it was to visit. I took one whole day and drove up to Lake Superior and visited a few beaches and with my love of photography I fell in love with the whole area. Although the water was much to cold to go into, it was a great experience. My thinking is this spring/early summer I may do some car camping. Not only do some staycations on my days off work but if I can get the time off work for a week or so, drive back up to the UP and just go camping, more than likely car camp again and just make it a chance to get out, enjoy nature, get some great photos and relax. Surely it is not a Vegas trip, but it would be something new. I have been researching car camping (Iv only camped twice in my life, in tents) and have the perfect car for it, a Subaru Forester. The draw back to this plan is I am not sure id be able to get time a second time to make a Vegas trip, but maybe I should skip going this year, I just don't know.
