Harry and Judy's RV Trip
No Photos 9th Jun 2011 - Summer 2011
Day 54-Silverton's Casino

We're getting the hang of this gambling thing now, we're up $2.36 mostly 'cause Harry was the big winner so you can imagine what that makes me.

We started out going south on The Strip to the famous "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign which has been there since 1959 and went on the National Registry of Historic Places in 2009 after 50 years.  Had our picture taken there as does everybody else.  Then we continued south to Silverton's Casino, the newest casino in LV.  It's a bit quieter, not right in the middle of all the hubbub, not so smoky.  Saw the buffet lunch advertised for $5 so how could we say no.  Seems you need to join the players club so we did, we each got $5 in chips free, which I actually played with for about an hour and turned into over $22 before losing it all, and a free dinner each.  Guess we'll go back tomorrow night for dinner if we can move after the lunch we had today.

Drove back through the strip again, what a difference from night time, all the hotels and casinos look so boring compared to how they're lit up and flashy at night. Still mobbed with people, they're everywhere. 

Went to a gift shop near the campground advertised as the biggest gift shop in the world.  It is big, filled with lots of useless stuff that tourists buy. (think fridge magnets and salt and pepper shakers).

Got back to camp about 8, registered for another night here tomorrow night. Hopefully the truck will be ready tomorrow and we can pick it up and be on our way on Sat.  They're still saying they'll do their best.  Read outside 'til it got too dark and now I sense a game of Rummikubs coming on, maybe I'll be luckier at that.  There will be no dinner tonight, we can hardly breathe from lunch.

Beautiful day again today, hot and dry, 92, down to about 72 tonight.
