Casino Night

Thursday, December 4, 2014

Last night, I stopped in a shoe store and found a new pair of hiking boots.  Now I am ready to explore the Ajo desert with less foot pain.  Almost stopped by a Wendy’s to cheat for dinner, but I caught myself and went home and had beef stew, Tostitos with dip and tapioca pudding for dessert.  By the time I got my blog done, bought boots and fixed and ate dinner, it was 9:30 and time for bed.

After breakfast, I was on the road by 9am and it had just started to sprinkle.  It sprinkled and rained all the way to Tucson, Arizona.  Luckily, it was warm and only a four hour drive.  I am sure they need the rain.

Went through a lot of mountain ranges, but only took photos of a few because of the low clouds.  About 50 miles west of Deming, New Mexico, I could see the Pyramid Mountains off to the south.

A fairly non descript four hour drive today.  No sun and rain makes for poor photo conditions.  Here I am at the Del Sol Casino just 10 miles west of Tucson, Arizona where I plan to spend at least one night.  If I hit it rich at Texas Hold’em, maybe I’ll stay two so I can lose it all before I head on west.  image

I spent about three hours trying to get my Dish Tailgater up and running.  After two phone calls to Dish, I got it going.  But, I couldn’t get the Bears/Dallas game.  At least I got that going. 

I went in the casino at 8pm and wandered around.  The place is huge with all kinds of gambling.  I tried two slot machines, a 1cent and 2cent.  Big spender.  Lost $7 in under two minutes.  I’ll mark it up to recreation and call it a night.

A lady came by the RV earlier with a notice.  Evidently, there is a big event Saturday night and all RVs and semis must leave by 5pm on Saturday.  I won’t be getting my losses back tomorrow night.  Too bad.

See you later.
