Greetings from hot and humid Las Vegas, Nevada! We finished up another Tour40 project at the Las Vegas Springs Preserve this morning where we assisted their gardening crew in mulching, sweeping and litter clean up. The volunteers arrived full of energy and ready for anything the day would bring them. It was difficult pulling them away from the work site at the end of the day! Due to a storm blowing through the preserve yesterday, there was an extra amount of debris covering the pathways and some trees had been blown down. By the end of the project we had spread mulch over a large majority of the gardens and public walking areas and picked up ten full bags of litter! A big thanks to everyone from the Springs Preserve for all of their help during and after our service event!
We pulled into the city that never sleeps on Friday evening where we checked into Bally’s Resort and Casino for the next three nights. Our free time was spent strolling the infamous Strip, winning (and losing for some) money at the casinos and even catching a Cirque de Soleil show at Treasure Island! We also indulged in a 24-hour buffet pass which granted us unlimited access to seven different buffets across the Strip. From 7pm Friday night to 7pm on Saturday the only thing on all of our minds was when and where we were going to eat next. I think we consumed enough prime rib and King crab legs to cater an entire wedding!
Breaking News: We have added a temporary 8th member to the Tour40 road team! We welcomed Bill, our resident videographer into our RV family this morning , where he will be riding along with us all the way into Denver! He will be a great new addition and we heard rumors that he’s a fantastic cook! Just what we need after our Vegas Buffet marathon!
Welp, That’s all for now…See y’all in Denver!!
Diana and Tour 40 Team
