Poker in Las Vegas – Day 2.

Day 2 didn’t start so well. I took the shuttle bus from Sam’s Town RV Park to The Strip, and walked to The Rio in good time for the start of the noon tournament, but was dismayed to find that the tournament now started at 11am, and I was too late to enter. The next […]

Poker in Las Vegas – Day 1.

I left Justin’s place on the west side of the city shortly after he went to work, and after doing a bit of grocery shopping, headed in towards The Strip. At the Sahara it was quite obvious that the RV was not going to get into the low clearance parking garage, but the valet parking […]

Oh dear! My poker career is hardly off to a flying start! And considering the fact that my goal is to enter a high-stakes poker game, I am a little worried, to say the least. I had been told that the the pub just down the road has a regular poker tournament on a Saturday […]

New learnings.

During my travels over the last six months, being motivated to get on and achieve new goals was pretty easy. In fact at times, I was quite amazed at how easily some of the goals almost just fell into my lap. As I reflect upon the trip now, two such examples come easily to mind. […]

Viva Las Vegas!

I still had a lot of things that I wanted to see in Las Vegas, so on my last day there I was up early and headed out to Red Rock Canyon, which is just a few miles to the west of the city. From Simon and Myles’s house it only took minutes to get […]
