I checked my Passport America book and found a resort there. I called and yes, I could get the PA discount and could make a reservation. I booked for three nights, and although I didn't have to make a deposit, I requested an email confirmation. Good thing I did, because when I checked in the desk lady didn't want to give me the discount. I showed her the printed confirmation that noted the PA discount. "Oh" she said, and found us a spot.

That night we walked around the strip and went into a couple of stores and the MGM Casino. The weather was pretty cold and we were tired so we went back to the Alfa early.
I did a weeks worth of wash Saturday morning after the presentation, and then we went to The Mob Museum. Several people have told me it was a great exhibit, but I have to say I was not wowed by it.
I have seen several documentary shows on the History channel that covered the same subjects. Some of the pictures and most of the stories were things I had seen before.
Not money well spent.
Sunday there were two NFL playoff games Craig wanted to watch, so I went shopping at one of the outlet malls. I'm not much of a shopping fanatic, but I enjoy looking for clothes more now that I'm thinner. I bought one new top and some fun socks.
Monday we went to Hoover Dam, which is the subject of my next post. I feel we are making every day count, but are also taking our time to do mundane things like grocery shopping and the wash.
I could really get to like this lifestyle!
Beware of what you wish for. While in Death Valley I said that I wished I knew more about geology. Like many RV parks, the Las Vegas resort has a free book exchange. Guess what I found.
It is an older text book from California State University. I have started to read it and am sure it is for a Geology 101 course. I remember a lot that I have read so far, but my knowledge is mostly from grade school science, the Discovery Channel, and signage at park visitors stations.
It is never too late to learn!
