I am so excited that we finally made reservations, and everything is a done deal now!
After much procrastination, I finally booked the car, and hotel.
I had the flights booked since June 23.
As you can imagine, I feel like a weight has been lifted. For over a month, we have had plans to fly into SLC airport on Friday, August 10th and fly out of LAS on Friday August 17th. We didn't even know how we were getting from SLC to Las Vegas, or where we were staying once we got there.
So, now we know we will be driving there. The car long distance is going to cost about half of what 2 flights would have cost. I didn't want to take a bus. I think driving there will be fun, and it is only about a 6 hour drive, to me that is nothing, I am used to the 13 hour drive up to PEI. We will ditch the car as soon as we get there, at the airport, and take a shuttle service to the hotel.
We stuggled with where to stay, what was most affordable but still nice, and settled on Treasure Island. Initially we were thinking of staying in Old Vegas (downtown) at the Golden Nugget for two nights and then moving to the strip for another two nights, but realistic thinking prevailed. Who wants to change hotels every 2 days? As it is, we are staying 3 nights in Park City, too much packing and unpacking can put a damper on a trip. So, 4 nights at Treasure Island it is.
I am bringing my computer. I hope to document this trip as best I can with pictures and stories of our adventures. At the very least, it will be fun for me to read later on. Now I need to research what yokel towns we will be passing through on the road trip there.
YAY! 13 days till the start of our trip!
