Artived at Duck Creek RV Resort in Vegas. Planning on staying fir. Week to watch friends drag race their bike. This campground allows us 7 nights with Passport America -$13/n plus tax! Anyways got parked and settled in then got in the truck to do a little sightseeing. Havent been to Vegas since July 2007. It wasnt long before it was getting dark and we headed back to the trailer. Decided to go have Prime rib buffet at Sam's town but the lineup was to long - would take an hr to get thru. So went over to and had chinese at Panda. We then thought about going to a movie since gambling is not something we enjoy. Found that Gravity was playing to Boulder Station a couple of miles away. Got in the theatre and found we were the only ones there! Enjoyed the show in 3D
Next day did more driving around. Went to the pawn store that is the site of the seekly show Pawn Stars. Not much inside other then souvenir junk promoting their show. Not anything that was pawned! Continued to drive around the strip then headed to Las Vegas Raceway to buy tickets for the weekend races. Was only $60 each for 4 days of racing!! Dwayne bought a couple of tshirts then drove around and went to the infield of the Nascar track. There is a company by the name of Dream Racing where you can drive a Ferrari 3 laps for $200! Luckily Dwayne wasnt that interested in doing that! We ended up at Sunset Station for a buffet that would turn out to be the best we had for $10!
Wednesday we meet up with Romeo and Frenny for coffee. They had arrived the night before. So we discussed plans of our next meeting in Yuma before heading into Mexico.
The Edmonton guys arrived on Thurs so we went out to see them. They had travelled thru alot of snow in AB and Montana. Were very happy to be in Vegas. We enjoyed the next 3 days of racing. Al did well but got knocked out in the semi finals. He was happy with results.
Packed up and headed to Phoenix but before we left got a message that Steve, Gary, Jim and Gerald were heading to Lake Havasu from Phoenix for a trip on their motorcycles. All are from Canada for 10 days except Steve who is a BC snowbird. The visitors rented motorcycles for the week to do some touring around. So we changed our plans and headed to Lake Havasu. Had been there 2 yrs ago and didnt like it then but will see how it is this time! When we got there it was still the same but very windy! So met up with the guys that evening for a few beers and hear about their trips around Arizona. All were happy eith all the riding they had done
Next day they went to Yuma and we headed to Mesa. Wanted to get to the Mesa swap meet. Once I checked on line founf out it was only open Fri Sat and Sun:-(. We found stayed at Towerpoint RV Resort. Nice place. So that evening met up with an old friend Tony and I made supper for all of us.
Next day packed up and headed to Kim and Steve's place in San Tan Valley about and 45 mins away from Mesa. We have been friends since grade seven and since they live in Prince George we dont get together that often. So had a good visit with Kim before the guys returned from Yuma. So again that night we had a bunch of beers and heard more stories. Jim and Gary are heading back to Edmonton in the morning, Gerald is not leaving until Sun. So after an evening of visiting we headed back to our trailer a couple blocks away in the golf club parking lot. Nice and close and free!!
Headed back to Mesa so we could get to the market next day and Dwayne wanted to go to Dodge dealership to get oil changed.
Friday walked around the market until my hips were to sore to go any longer!! Bought the beaded sandals I wanted plus coasters tile cutter and sheets!! All at great prices. Then spent the afternoon at the pool. We liked Towerpoint so stayed 2 nights so we could use the pool. Next day off to Yuma
It's now been 2 weeks since we have arrived back at our house. Unfortunately Dwayne is still fighting with the fridge to get it working...
