The Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas Sign…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. My scheduled departure date is Friday, February 13th.

Mary continues to be overwhelmed with personal business. I am now not expecting to see her again until I arrive at her home in Murphys, California about the third week in April. It’s just the way things are and we just have to deal with it.

I’ve come to Las Vegas, Nevada several times over the years and have quite thoroughly explored the area. Rather than go back to these various places and re-create the wheel, (unless I do something different and unusual) I’m electing to republish some of my earlier blog entries.

The Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas Sign…
(First published February 13, 2011)

Two days ago when Mary and I visited the MGM Grand Hotel/Casino, we drove about one mile further south on Las Vegas Boulevard, also known as “The Strip”, in order to view this famous sign…

This is what to sign says as you are leaving town…

This sign has been welcoming visitors to Las Vegas, Nevada since 1959. There is also an identical sign on the Boulder Highway as you enter the area from the south.

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

Ever Seen A White Stop Sign?

A couple of Blog entries ago I mentioned having spent the night at the Wild Horse Casino in a quiet RV parking area. This was the location of the old casino and no longer used by the general public. While there I happen to notice a most unusual sight…a white stop sign. While in the photograph it looks more gray then white…in reality it was more white than gray.

Most likely you know red paint beaches in time in the sun. Well that’s what’s happened here. The stop sign there for likely a number of years faced due South with no protection from the burning Arizona sun. Summer temperatures in this area have been known to exceed 110+ degrees. Here’s the result…

Even in all my years of travel, I’ve never seen a white stop sign.
