No Pic to go with the story but was sitting at the bar at the MGM in Vegas a few minutes ago when a prostitute approached me and ask if I needed some company. I told her she couldn't afford me...she smiled and walked away...

I haven't done Vegas during the lifetime of many younger RDPers, but your story got my attention. Used to be prostitution was seriously frowned on in Vegas and I believe Clark County as a whole. I know two Orange County Sheriff deputies who worked vice in OC, decided to make some side money in Vegas and got run out of few casinos. 😂
I know one of our more memorable Vegas guy trips we ended up at Ash Meadows Ranch on the way home. 😍 My buddy's dad lived in Vegas and worked on Nuke projects at the test site. Seems our Nuclear testing was often followed by trips to Ash Meadows or other nearby brothels. Heard that the old Vegas bosses didn't appreciate distractions. They wanted gamblers gambling, not banging some chick they weren't getting any rent from.
Guess times have changed, from what you guys report, Vegas is like adult Disneyland and filled with distractions and alternatives to gambling.

You guys sitting at the marlin club?! Love that place! Lol.

The cigs tucked in Barrett’s garage out of weather. 😂😂 it’s gonna rain tomorrow anyway. But man, I’ve been following your posts. Looks like you guys are having a blast. Was just talking to some friends about running a few boats there from Channel Islands and Santa Barbara harbors. Long run but could be fun for a weekend. Can’t wait to get back over there, it’s been a little bit.

Have a great time man. Go by Steve’s steak house and grab a slab! 😁👍

I just cooked a prime rib for everyone the other night so I'm steaked out. But we will probably hit Steve's before we leave!

New Years at the beach. Did a golf cart poker run that havasu Lew won. Went for a harbor cruise Saturday, super nice out. Always like it when people are boating and you can see snow on the mountains. Good times.

Ah man what happened ?

I was not really clear on my post so here is a little more information.

We tried it from the store/gas station with the chicken on top. We got about an hour into it and there was a section that the wives were not comfortable with passing. Our friend’s Jeep got a little off on the loose side of the road and we backed down and watch a couple of other SXS cross then another Jeep and truck that were built a little. They had a hard time but passed. We just figured we’d try it another day. So we drove back to the highway and on down to Sienna Springs and went in the easy way.

All in all it was a great day and allowed me to get more comfortable with the Jeep on more challenging roads. I have not had to put it 4low to this point and shifting on hills was not as much of a concern and I thought it would be 👍 Looking forward to the next adventure. Maybe Moab’s Hot Tub. LOL

It was really good conditions. Snow is a wet though. You coming out?

Yes, we are going to be in West Yellowstone at the end of this month. This year there will be 19 of us from all over the place. It is going to be a blast for sure. It will kick my ass after. A few days of 8+ hour rides. The night ride that I pushed to happen was a blast and some are talking about doing it once again. 👍
