    Ok... so if all goes as planned, I will be in Vegas in June this year for a few days.

    I, being a person that's never been around there before, am wondering about how close out of town is there some sort of like campground/camp place/RV something. I want to leave the big bulkiness of the motorhome and trailer out of town, and use the '75 K5 to shuttle into town.

    I know, stupid question. But then again I'm tired and bored. So what else is there to do but ask dumb questions. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    My friend really wants to go there. I think he wants to go visit a few Casinos or something.

    All my money will stay in my wallet... well, maybe I might drop a quarter in somewhere. But thats probably how they get you sucked in. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    I'll just cruise around town with my top off, see if I can find any cute girls into Chevy 4x4s who are attracted to unattractive guys. Anythings possible. Though I'd probably have a better chance at winning it big in a Casino. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] yea all you northerners are back asswards.

    yea sams town has an RV park, and theyre not in the middle of town. theres a place called 13mile campground out near redrock that is close. its a part of "red rock national recreation area" just southwest of vegas. but i'd go to sams town.

    Is Sams Town fairly high class/ upscale? Cause I'm not. I hate standing out in the crowd. I suppose I should paint the car trailer before I leave.

    And I guess I'll have to refrain from buying and parting out any rigs while I'm there. It's a tough habit to break. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Maby you should just go to Pahrump Nv. They hand you a tool box and jack stands( cresent wrench and blocks) when you pull into town. I think its a law or something that you have a few brokedown cars around your trailer. I believe those are in plentiful supply too... in case the weary travler does not meet the minimum 3 car requirements. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    Its only an hour out of Vegas.

    PS I'v stayed at sams town. its not up scale but it is nice. You have everything you need right there. It used to be a little place and was quite a ways out of town. But it has grown quite a bit and the town has grown around it. But it is pretty east to get to and is close to everything. not too far from Lake Mead either.

    There is also a RV parks and Campgroungds at Lake Mead. its a lot nicer to stay out there and drive into Vegas. lotsa honeys on the beaches too.. Fishing aint bad either. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Reno is still nicer! The scenery is way better. Lake Tahoe has Nude Beaches.
