Anyway, back to Vegas. I've been to Vegas quite a few times over the years - actually got married there almost 9 years ago - so despite the comments in my last post, it wasn't a new or scary experience. That said, every time I go back, there always seems to be something new to do or see, which is fine by me.
There was no fishing on this trip although Lake Powell & Lake Mead aren't that far away and stripers could have probably been easily had. Stripers, as in bass; not strippers, although I'm sure they could have easily been had as well. No shooting off any guns either - sorry Wolfy & Dennis - didn't get around to bustin' caps in anything - this time.
So what did I do? Besides crash a wedding, mostly a lot of eating and drinking. Luckily (I think), I lost more money to bartenders than I did table games or slot machines. The Luxor hotel ain't the best, however beer makes everything okay.
Here are pics of some stuff with captions. Didn't take a lot of pictures, but they should tell at least some of the story...the rest will have to stay back in Vegas where it belongs.

Except back then, there was a lagoon & waterfall rather than a paved over pool deck.
At least the good 'ol Tropicana is still standing.
