I just returned from a weekend in Las Vegas with my fiance! Incredible as usual (my third trip to Vegas)—especially if you like to gamble! Endless leisurely activities: Casinos, shows, pools, food, drinks, etc. Anything you’ve ever wanted to do you can do in Vegas. I highly recommend going if you haven’t already. I’ve stayed at Treasure Island, Tropicana, and now Mandalay Bay. All have their differing qualities, but all nice places nonetheless. Treasure Island is more of a family type atmosphere—meaning more activities for children. Tropicana is a throwback to the 1970’s era—decent overall, but not very extravagant. Mandalay Bay is the nicest casino/hotel out of the three. It is definitely classier and caters to the high rollers. In addition, I think it has the best pool of any casino/hotel on the Strip. The only catch is you’ll likely pay more money to stay, and its location is not the best (end of the Strip). Flights are cheap, and the drive from Phoenix is dangerously close!
Yes, it’s true. I am beginning my search for some decent camping/hiking equipment. With all the great mountainous areas and hiking trails around Arizona, I figure it’s about time to get outdoors. Please let me know if you have recommendations for equipment—REI, eBay, etc.

I purchased a 4GB iPod yesterday from Target. I’ll let you know more details as I begin to add music. I was desperately in need of another one to occupy my workout hours. I’ve been using one of the original iPod’s and the software has been acting up—freezing, etc. Hopefully this one will work better!
