Vegas baby!!! and Aliens… 06/09/2016

Escaping the #DeathValley heat once again… Heading to #LasVegas with the girlfriend this time… Tracey didn’t get to go #camping with us, so I had to get her out of this area for some needed r&r…

Tracey and I have been hanging out a lot lately… She stays over most nights and we are pretty much inseparable outside of work… Good times with no expectations…

We drove into #Pahrump,Nevada pretty late… We didn’t get up until 2pm because we were so exhausted from work and battling the heat… #Pahrump is a district a half an hour away from #StovepipeWellsVillage… It’s pretty much the closest place with most of the accommodations of a small town, except they don’t have a movie theatre…

I always park in front of the #PahrumpNugget… It’s our favorite casino in Pahrump and actually my favorite casino all together… On Friday and Saturday nights they have craps and their odds are really good… The best I have seen…

Not that I #gamble much folks… What I do is after a rough work month or two, I will take $100 and play some craps… I usually break even or win a little but never go much past $100 in losses… I think the most I have ever lost is $250 and I was pretty mad at myself for taking it that far! lol!

But when you bust your ass for tips, you can pretty much justify blowing a $100 in cash… What’s the worth of killing yourself if you can’t have a little fun with your money? I think it’s good therapy to treat money like the whore she is…

We soon got into Vegas… Funny enough there is a casino here called #TheGoldenNuggetLasVegas… I guess it’s a richer version of #TheNugget in Pahrump…

This cheap #RVParking lot is a gold mine if you want to save money in #Vegas… It was only $17 a night… You get electric, sewerage and water… And believe it or not, it’s really quiet… I never thought this but no one is never here because they are too busy on #MainStreetLasVegas #gambling and #drinking… Who would have thought you could got to Vegas and get some needed peace and quiet…

I would bore you with tons of pictures of Vegas but we have seen them all folks… Boring… Not my cup of tea, so I didn’t take many pictures… But above, we did do the #zip-line over #FreemontStreetLasVegas… Which was really cool… I like #FreemontStreet better than the strip… It’s less fancy, less portentous and the accommodations are better for someone who just wants to take it easy and not blow a huge wad of cash…

We did one night in Vegas… Gambled, zip-lined and even went to a dance club… It was a good time… I’m not a huge Vegas fan but yet, I wouldn’t mind going back and doing it this way again… We hardly spent any money and we had an amazing time…

Who would have thought I would have to go out into the middle of the Desert to meet a girl I really enjoy being with… Life will take you there folks, you just have to listen and follow…

We took a different route back to #StovepipeWells… You can go through #DeathValleyNationalPark or take a freeway around the park… We went back on the freeway considering it was less of a climb for #TheMillenniumFalcon….

On the way, we got to stop at this famous place… #Area51 folks… Yep, it’s not far from here… Don’t know exactly where it is and don’t want to know… I don’t stick my nose in such business… lol!

This is the #Area5TruckStop believe it or not… And not only does it celebrate #Area51, it’s also famous for something else… It’s America’s only legal themed brothel called #TheAlienCatHouse. And yes they do have a probe room and give free tours… I myself have never been inside but I know of many who have… What a country we live in!!! Lol!

IMG 6670

Even the coffee here has been taken over by #aliens…lol… The store was really weird with some really cool #AlienMemorabilia… This Truck stop is in #Armagossa,NV… Which is a town you can get to from the freeway and through Death Valley…

We soon continued on after I tried to convince Tracey to check out the #Cathouse with me… But she wouldn’t take the bait… lol! We drove through #Beatty,Nevada next… This is another small town near #StovepipeWells… It’s about a half an hour away but doesn’t have much except a casino and some small places to eat…

IMG 6680

As we got closer to home the temperature started to rise… It’s funny, you go from 90 degree heat in Vegas to 120 here… You definitely feel the transition and it really hits you in the gut…

From Beatty to Stovepipe it was a brutal downhill drive… It’s so bad, my breaks heat up and I have to rest #TheFalcon for a few minutes to get those brakes working properly again…

So, back to work! The Millennium Falcon has done it again… I filled her up with fresh propane and filled her gas tank… The next time I plan to move, I will be hopefully leaving #Stovepipe…  I just can’t last here through this brutal heat that is just going to get worse in the summer… And I know The Millennium Falcon will not benefit from it… Ready to see what the next journey brings…

Tell the Traveling Mac what you think... be nice now...
