Things to do in Vegas.


Hey, anyone want to partake in an ATV adventure in the valley of fire? Its about $150 and would be an awesome adventure if someone wants to go.

Seems like an alright deal for all the rental, lunch, drinks, etc.

They have another ATV tour that is 6 hours long and over 100 miles in distance(all the way to california). If I can't find anyone else wanting to go, I'll be taking the 6 hr atv extreme tour, as really there is nothing better than being out in nature on a 4 wheeler or dirt bike.

Sailor, I am on my treo and can't check out that video but it sounds like a fun thing.
I am not going to do any gambling, so I am looking for alternatives, that one sounds like a 'blast'

Looks like an awesome experience. I am seriously considering this.

Same here. I'm not going to gamble, but just going for the experience.

Sailor - The Gun Store is a definite must-do activity. I personally recommend the Thompson - kind of gives you that whole Al Capone / Eliott Ness theme. The M249 SAW would of course also be great - it's pretty tough to go wrong with anything in that store Bring plenty of cash for ammo, you can launch $100 in lead in literally a few minutes at that place.

Bob - None of this is definite yet, but we are working on light snacks and beverages (adult or otherwise) for the tours. I wouldn't want to see you starve to death or anything

Since I'm local to Las Vegas, I'd be happy to recommend hotels or activities if anyone needs assistance planning their trip. If there is any interest, I'd be happy to start a new topic on "Rob's top 10 cheapo LV hotel List" or something like that - let me know if you'd like to see it, and I'll take a bit of time and do it if there is some interest.

Hmm... shooting stuff up does sound like fun.

Might even do a drive to the grand canyon.

If you want to do the whole Grand Canyon tour thing, I'd highly recommend spending a bit of extra $$ and do it via airplane or helicopter. The GC is about a 3 hour drive each way, and the scenery is better from the air anyway IMO. Unless you want to spend a day hiking or something like that, I'd do an air tour.

I don't want an air tour, it's not at good s ATVing in the desert fun-wise I will be flying over the GC two times from my 757, so I'll get to take a peek.

Edit: I see now you were replying to UH-Matt about driving to the Grand Canyon.

- Shooting stuff
- Grand Canyon
- Blackjack

Are my 3 things to do in Vegas.

Oh... and maybe some networking and hosting type stuff.

EDIT: Also looking to get a nice deal on a large colo contract, so a message to any colo providers attending - treat us well!

I would take you on a trip to Miami, but its on the opposite side of the country

Nap of the Americas in Miami is pretty impressive.

Ok, back to the topic, things to do!

I have 3-4 people that are interested ATVing, I was planning to stay through the 20th, but one of the people wanting to go, it would have to be on the morning on the 19th, so this would cut out the last day of the convention, anyone up for that still?
