We got up this morning, packed the car and were ready to go. He said to me that I should take the first driving shift.
OK, said I reluctantly because I’d rather watch the scenery. I love to shift. What, no shifting? It’s an automatic and there’s no shifting. I don’t know how to drive an automatic. Ok-to the back seat with Kaci.
Most of the day was driving in Arizona and I’ll save the Arizona portion of the trip for the return trip. The one thing I wanted to do in Vegas was go to the top of the Statosphere-the tallest structure in the US west of the Mississippi River.
What a great time can be had up there. There’s a restaurant (food!!). There’s also a roller coaster at the top (you can see a part of it). You’re already very high and some of the downs make it look like you’re going to “fly” to the bottom. See the center pole. That’s also a ride. They take you up to the top in a seat and then all of a sudden, it’s a free fall. It’s like safe bungee jumping. He’s done these rides but wouldn’t let me go on the rides. He said it was something else in the night with all of Las Vegas lit up way below you. That’s something you may not know about Vegas. The gambling is all over the world. Who needs entertainment and show girls when you have me and Kaci? The other thing you may not know is there are a lot of roller coasters closer to the ground. One even goes in and out of the casino floor. They wouldn’t let me go on those either. The fact that I’m a dog and they don’t allow dogs on these is no excuse, right? Las Vegas’ advertising slogan is “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”. My desire to get on these rides is NOT staying in Vegas-I still want to do them. It’s on my bucket list. Tomorrow we’re going to Utah and end up north of Salt Lake City.
