    KOA at Sam's Town, Campground

    July 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 41 °C

    Kurz vor Las Vegas verbreitert sich die Strasse abrupt auf 6 Spuren und plötzlich ist massenhaft Verkehr da. Ein- und Ausfahrten links und rechts. Brücken, Baustellen, usw. Da kommt man ganz schön ins Schwitzen.

    Die Idee, mit dem Camper den Stripe herunterzufahren verwerfen wir ganz schnell.

    Dafür stoppen wir bei den „Premium Outlets North“ und staunen über dessen Ausmass. Zusätzliche 50-70% Abschlag werden in den einzelnen Shops generell auf die ehe schon tiefen Preise gewährt.

    Wir beschliessen zwecks Shopping nochmals herzukommen und machen uns auf zum Campground .

    Der Campground liegt 20 Fahrminuten vom Stripe entfernt. Die Kinder springen sofort in den Pool, bis plötzlich Blitze über den Himmel zucken. Was dann kommt kann man kaum beschreiben. Ein Unwetter sondergleichen. Das Wohnmobil wird dermassen durchgeschüttelt, dass wir Angst haben umzukippen. Es regnet die ganze Nacht durch und in Teilen von Las Vegas ist der Strom ausgefallen.

    Las Vegas KOA

    November 15, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    OK. This is a REAL parking lot, and Las Vegas is India style smoggy. But there's a big cold front moving into a large swath of the Southwest.

    Do we look unhappy? I had to dig out my SKIRT and you can see what Gordon is wearing. Though he can't bring himself to drop the Northwest style socks. Some bogus claim about heels cracking.

    We're off to Whole Foods now, first one of our trip. Happy Parking lot campers.

    The Mob Strikes

    November 16, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    We didn't JUST come to Las Vegas for the weather, Whole Foods and the parking lot camping. I had been doing some research and found two museums we had completely missed when here last year: the very interesting sounding Neon Museum (a graveyard of collected neon signs from Las Vegas through the years) and the Mob Museum. Today was the day we planned to see them both.

    When we got around to actually PLANNING our day, it was about noon (we ARE retired, after all). We found out that the Neon Museum was closing at 2:00 for a private event. And what the heck?? We couldn't just browse the signs, we had to take an hour-long TOUR. "Oh well," we said. This might be the Wilson Nicoll memorial always-leave-something-for-next-time event (we're still waiting to go back to Frontier town, DAAAAD). Fine. On to the Mob Museum, which was the one we really were interested in.

    Well. After checking out the museum a little more thoroughly on the web, we decided that they were really aiming to give you an authentic feel for the Mob experience, as their prices were EXTORTIONATE. We were feeling a little cheap (we are, after all, RETIRED). We began discussing alternatives.

    In the end, we had a delightful and ECONOMICAL afternoon. The car wash had FREE vacuuming and our car rugs really needed it! Then we went to the THRIFTY Ice Cream shop (as opposed to Baskin and Robbers) for a reasonably priced but delicious sweet treat. Finally, we hopped over to the cinema in the casino complex next to the parking lot, I mean campground, to see Jack Reacher. All for less than ONE admission to the Mob Museum. Wilson Nicoll, would be proud.

    A private party at 2:00 in the afternoon??? What the ---- is right! The Neon Museum is pretty cool so a "next time" should have a spot on your Vegas bucket list. My personal favorite is the Sahara Sign with the Camels.
