Day 6 – Vegas baby!!

Will explore later and no doubt encounter more madness. Have just checked into Caesar’s Palace. I’m liking the VIP treatment. Ethan has already headed to the whirlpool bath!

Thought things would get a bit more comfortable heading down out of the mountains, but as it is 110F in Vegas, its just a matter of swapping eyeball-popping low pressure for eyeball boiling heat!

Ethan has been amusing himself scoping out entertaining signs from the car. Can’t help but think that one of those is a little insensitive…
