countdown to vegas

2 days and couting...

I'll be travelling to Las Vegas on Thursday afternoon to take part in the MINI Vacation in Vegas, or AMVIV - a four-day MINI owners' meetup, complete with charity dinners and "runs" to various touristy locales (Red Rocks, Valley of Fire, Mt. Charleston, and Hoover Dam).

I'll be caravaning out and attending with my friend and fellow MINI enthusiast, Erik. I'm very excited about attending my very first Vegas show. It will also be my first trip to Vegas where I spend more than 12 hours there (mostly sleeping, it was then). On the way back on Sunday afternoon, we plan on taking the scenic route through Death Valley. Needless to say, I'm very excited about that bit as well.

Many photos will be taken, more than my normal amount of alcohol will be consumed (which means any), mucho mas dinero will be spent, or lost, or won - who knows... It will definitely be a nice little mini-break (nice double-entendre, Jules!).

I will try to post from time-to-time from the hotel (or wherever there might be WiFi available), but I make no promises!!
