Walking the Strip

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 17 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

One of the first things I like to do in a new place is get my bearings. Figure out where everything is and how to how to get around. Walking up and down The Strip seemed a good way to do this and to also visit all the casinos. So I started out, walking North.

The day was hot, so I tried to keep inside as much as possible.

I started in Caesars Palace, walking through the Forum Shops…

…all the way up to the Stratosphere and back down to Sahara before I was picked up to go to Star Trek: The Experience. I figured I walked at least 16 kilometers there and then another 4 later that evening.

By time I was I the Sahara, my feet were killing me and my left knee was sore. But the was not yet over, not by a long shot.
