Blast furnace that is! We spent the last couple of days in Laughlin, Nevada. Yesterday we were walking around in 118 degree heat. However, the gambling was good (at least for us). We never seem to come back from Vegas ahead and we are small time gamblers but we are about $60 ahead right now. We will probably not be that far ahead soon since we are now in Vegas. The first machine we played after arriving in Vegas took all the money we put in to it. It was exactly the kind of machine that was paying off for us in Laughlin. I had always heard that you had better chances in Laughlin and now I believe it.
We also took a side trip to Lake Havasu City yesterday. BORING!!! Most of the British shops that they built to go with LondonBridge are closed. The only bright spot was a brew pub where we had lunch. The brews were all a tad on the sweet side though.
