Viva Las Vegas

09.22.06 | Comment?

Tonight I find myself in the Rio hotel, off the strip, in my third room. In the first one, neither tv nor internet worked. In the second one, only tv worked. The third one was just right. The staff get credit for never giving me a rough time about being a high maintenance guest.

560 miles today. Not so bad distance wise, but rough never the less. Whomever creates traffic patterns in Las Vegas (not the Strip, other parts) ought to go back to school. There is no traffic flow, it’s more a bad traffic stutter.

Hoover Dam. If you haven’t seen it, you’re missing a treat. It is the best mix of engineering and construction execution I have ever seen in person. Absolutely stunning. Also, the sunrise in New Mexico, over the mesas, was breath taking – also highly recommended.

The eureka referenced in yesterday’s entry was a eureka I think. Nevertheless, the content therein will stay confidential for some period of time. I’ll give hints periodically. Off to witness the sights and sounds that are Las Vegas now, stay in to watch college football tomorrow, in particular, those 16.5 point favorites, The Ohio State Buckeyes as they take on the Penn State Nittany Lions. Then head home early Sunday morning.
