Day 22: Viva Lost Wages

Nevada – Day 2

Today was another rest day. The Chief has been getting over a 24 hour stomach bug, if you catch my drift. Who knew Montezuma made it to the Grand Canyon.

So we kept it quiet today. We walked up to the Tropicana to pick up Traveler Nell’s ticket to Rock Vault. Staying in a non smoking facility I forgot the stink of a Las Vegas casino. By the time we were done I felt like we had back when we visited Naples. The smell of stale cigarettes and fresh desperation.

Afterward we stopped by the MGM Grand for a greatly overpriced buffet and a swing through the slot machines for me. As mentioned previously I have had a little luck at the “pokies” as they say in Australia. Not so much today.

Big Winner!

Then it was back to the hotel for a couple messages offering us the wonderful opportunity to buy a timeshare and some quiet time with The Chief and Daniel Tiger

Tomorrow it is off to Bakersfield on our way to Yosemite.
