LV-- I though that was Lower Vermont Cheesy

When I was stationed in Little Rock, AR  I had civilian employee who told me he was going to LA for the weekend, and after about the 3rd time he told me this I thought he must be made of money-----until one of the other civilians told me that meant Lower Arkansas where Civilian #1 had a family farm and went hunting!

I just never imagined, with the quality of people we have on this forum, that anyone would be from Las Vegas!     Grin

Okay, just teasing....

I've never been there, but in my imagination, I can't imagine going.  Desert, rocks, prostitutes.  I'm sure when people think of northern Michigan, you might have equal odd images.  So often when people think of Michigan they think "Detroit".  Yet, the truth is, northern Michigan is God's country.  I guess I should go to LV just to prove to myself that there is better there than Hollywood has given me.

Hi Dave, Having worked there for the past 40 years, I take umbrage at the fact you would believe anything that Hollywood feeds you! I would never sit down to eat with an actor or a producer, unless I knew them well! Usually an unpleasent event. Just kidding. Good guys and bad guys just like in any other business. Johnny Carson once joked that all women in Vegas were prostitutes! The nuns at my school got together a letter writing campaign that bombarded NBC for a month, poor NBC, we all know how good nuns can be at harangueing. The desert is different, a Joshua forest is a sight to behold, especially snow covered, a bald eagle swooping down to pick up a big grey carp is an amazing sight, as well as a wild mustang drinking from a creek in a bright red, sandstone canyon, this happens all around LV. I hope you can make it sometime, tom, lvmci...

That late spring storm caught me too, Matt.  Lost 9 days coming home from Blytheville in late April.  Fortunately I had Rusty to host me and give shelter in Longmont,  what a great guy.  You have to get out of town to appreciate Vegas, we love going up to the Red Rock area, pine trees, waterfalls, looking down at the lights of town.

Dave, hopefully you'll make another attempt at coming down here. If and when, I can give you a walk-around of our coach show you how we've survived the winters. Most people don't understand Michiganders. We are hard core when it comes to snow and cold. I've met Alaskans who fear our "Lake Effect Snow" muha!  Cool

You guys do have some nice bugs that we do not have, a local in Wurtsmith where I spent some time told me the best mosquitoes repellant was a 20 gauge shot gun 

The Air Force used those suckers in flight training for combat sometimes the mosquitoes won Roll Eyes

Okay, you have me there... we have mosquitoes that are viscous, but our bear are harmless.

I think you have some snakes that would make me afraid of running barefoot through the woods

That's really true.  I don't know how much we will get to see, but no point in staying home and never seeing it..... even Las Vegas maybe  Cheesy
