I was to be the only guy in the Melanie's car but I was looking forward to this because everyone “IS SO FUNNY” (If I say that one more time I am going to scream!). I met with Melanie, Tracy and Jenn by Starbucks - everyone look wide-eyed and bushy tailed! Once we found Mel's car everyone got in.
“MELANIE!!! MELANIE!!! YOU'VE LEFT JENN BEHIND!!”
Both Tracy and I join in this time while Jenn is waving at the car “MELANIE!!!”.
“MELANIE!!! JENN!! JENN!! JJJJJJJEEEEEENNN!”
Mel is the first girl I have met that can't do two things at once! So, now that Jenn was back in the car we could get on our way. No. We needed gas. And. Tracy and Jenn needed coffee. 30 minutes later and we're on our way to the Red Rock Canyon.
At the canyon we stopped and waited around for James, already renowned for not being very good at directions, we were waiting quite some time. Not to worry though because we met up with Sal and RJ, who was kitted out with a camel hump and a drinking straw - Someone has does this before!
Finally, we get moving again and the scenery is just amazing.
We didn't get too far on the walk because 1)it was hot 2) we were all hungover 3) There were too many cameras and 4) It wasn't an easy grade walk as promised by RJ! So some people struggled. 5) Jenn was a little bit poorly.
By the time we got back to the hotel, everyone was starved. So, Tracy, Jenn, Mel and I ate in the diner. There wasn't much time to get rested so we bolted the food and I headed off to get pampered!
A few hours later and Mel picked me up in her 1982 V6 Toyota and drove me the 1 mile to the Angry Wives pub. Everyone slowly arrived and shortly after the place was crowded and the locals looked on bemused by our “Convention” and the mix of people it had attracted; black, white, tanned; short, very short, very tall; European, American, Asian �" it was a fantastic mix and everyone was either funny and good looking or intelligent and good looking!
By 9pm I get tapped on the shoulder by Sal and he says Will can get cheap tickets to a show in Vegas and would I like to go? I knew that everyone was going to a club after so I was keen not to miss out on that side of the fun too but Sal assured me there would be time.
Sal and I were shown to our seats by some interesting looking characters.
We headed back to the hotel and I managed to find my way into the Cherry nightclub. This place is again, like everything in the Red Rock hotel �" awesome! I thought at first is was just a dance floor but I soon realised it included the pool area too.
