Last night was not the greatest for sleeping.
We had quite a few young folks in our campground hootin' and hollerin' all night.
Add sirens from the strip, and car alarms, and you have two tired RV'ers this morning.
Oh well, this is Vegas right ??
Let's go have fun, and walk the strip.
We started out with pretty high expectations, and big smiles on our faces.
We felt a little uncomfortable, with a few patrons, having just a little too much fun, and shouting at people walking by.
With a combination of Spring Break, and St. Patrick's Day, the streets were packed, making walking difficult.
We popped in and out of a few shops, and noticed immediately how expensive everything is here.
We were hoping to take in a couple of shows later, so we priced a few things out.
Whoops, that's a lot of money for a few hours of entertainment.
And, we were totally unprepared for the street vendors that are very aggressive while handing out cards of scantily clad ladies, enticing you to visit their XXX shows.
We walked through a few of the casinos, but we are not gamblers, so we felt out of place.
We wanted to visit Margarita Ville, or the Hard Rock Cafe, but the lineups were way too long.
In fact the only place that did not have a lineup was good old McDonald's.
It was about this time, that it started to sprinkle out. Oh, oh, we were pretty far down the strip, so let's head back.
Now remember, the crowds were thick as flies, so it was impossible to move too fast.
As the rain started getting heavier, we picked up the pace. By the time we got back to the rig, we were pretty wet.
Okay, we know what everyone must be thinking ... Hey, TnT, what the heck did you expect ?
Well, to be honest, we did not know what to expect, but suffice it to say we were totally out of our element today, and Vegas is now on the "been there, done that" list.
We must be getting old, because we sure saw lots of evidence of young people having the time of their lives.
We are going to see the Fremont Street Experience tomorrow or the next day, so we still have some fun ahead of us.
But for now, this boring old couple better get to bed !!
