The side entrance to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave?

It was the video poker sign that gave it away.

Okay... I'll stop teasing. The answer lies in the picture below. I didn't go home rich, but I did get a nifty T-shirt!!!

In 30+ years of living here in AZ, have never been out to Laughlin. So, the Mrs. and I jumped in the truck and headed out for a few days. 3.5 hours, 225 miles. I'll probably never go to Vegas again. Laughlin is right on the Colorado river, but I don't think the water ever gets to 70 degrees coming out of the bottom of the dam nearby upstream. Jetskis abound, go fast river boats. The whole town is very relaxed and friendly, not as hustle and bustle as Vegas.

And oh! I saw some beaver! No, not THAT kind of beaver. Real live Bucky chew-the-trees-down kind of beaver! Have never seen one in real life before, but apparently there are lots of them along the river and they eat the bamboo shoots that grow along the edges of the river. Desert beaver... go figure!

Gambling (pick from any of several big casinos along the river walk) seems to be fairly loose. I stayed even the entire four days, until the last night (Sat.) when I went down a couple hundred. It's like they flip some switch or something to tighten up the odds for the weekend, but we had several $400 and $500 wins during the week. Paid for the room and all our meals, so turned out to be very inexpensive trip.

Anyway, if y'all get burned on Vegas and just wanna relax sometime, give Laughlin a try!

Laughlin, Nevada. 150 miles or so south of Vegas, right in the very bottom teeny-tiny southern tip of Nevada.
