Experience Vegas in 30 Minutes or Less

As most of you know, I take after my Dad.  And like I mentioned before, after his two cups of decaf in the morning he's good to go.  For those of you who are around me during the same hours you are not so fortunate.  I don't drink coffee and generally stay away from caffeine, so you just have to ride out the grumpiness.  Saying that I am not a morning person is a bit of an understatement, as my best friend, Jessica will tell you.  As you can tell, I was clearly awake when we left San Diego.

Vegas Baby!

Our original plan was to use some of our hotel points and stop in Las Vegas for a night.  Unfortunately, the night we happened to be going through the city was a Saturday and we weren’t able to find a hotel room that wasn’t completely scary.  We decided we would just skip it altogether and camp for the night in Zion National Park.  It’s alright.  Remember, I wasn’t too excited for it anyway.

Now don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Vegas.  It’s just not really my thing.  I’m not all that into gambling, free drinks, casinos and crowds.  Ok…maybe you could talk me into one or two free drinks.  But other than that, not much about Vegas appeals to me.  At least the drive out was full of beautiful clear blue skies.

As we thought more about it in the days before leaving, Caleb and I realized we were only interested in walking the strip and having dinner.  We both would have been up for seeing a show, but as we are on a budget for this trip, that really wasn’t too practical.

So this is about all we saw of Vegas.  We didn’t even get off the freeway to drive the strip.  I’ve done it and when I asked Caleb if he wanted to, he said he’d rather see it at night.

We did stop for lunch at an Arby’s though, so it wasn't a total loss.
