Vail to Vegas

Las Vegas, United States

Weeeeellll kitty kats... BHOW here to tell you a little story of our excursion to Las Vegas.

So... We are started in Vail, CO. This being our stomping grounds, our place of origin... Colorado.

From this beautiful state we started our long trek to Las Vegas, Nevada. Nathan, Logan and myself had finished an amazing day at Vail mountain and were stoked to get to Vegas to party and be apart of activities that only Vegas can deliver.

After many many miles and hours of driving we finally had a glimpse of the lights of Vegas on the horizon. Only good times and better times were racing through our brains. No more driving. Only the bright lights of the town and adventures in the future were in store.

No reservation? No problem! Well thats what we thought at least...

Good things our legs were working because we spent a solid amount of time walking from hotel to hotel only to find out that our dreams of Vegas living were far fetched.

Every single hotel in Vegas was booked. Even the cheap broke down hotels off the strip were sold out. This, obviously was a down point in our road trip of awesomeness.

With no sleeping options in Vegas we had to get back into driving mode. After 13 hours of driving the last thing we wanted to do was get back in the 4Runner and keep moving. But we had to, and we did. Next stop Barstow.

Delirious driving ensued but we arrived in Barstow only to miss our exit. Being in the state we were currently in, we decided to keep moving to Victorville, CA. This being a town where we knew of a hotel that was cheap and would accommodate us at four in the A.M.

Of course we missed the exit and spent a good while searching for new places to rest our heads. In the end, we all decided to cowboy up and find this mystery hotel. After a little Iphone action we managed to find the place and ended the night with some good ol Bud Light and well earned sleep.

Rest is a beautiful thing. We slept. We traveled on... To San Diego!
