There and Back Again
Stop 1 – Las Vegas, NV – 270 miles

So why would I stay at the Hooters Casino Hotel? Is it because I love chicken wings? Is it because it was one of the few places with rooms under $100? Is it because I enjoy participating in legalized sexual harassment? Yes, yes and yes.

You know you're dealing with a class establishment when the front desk is actually IN the casino. Fortunately they had room availability without a reservation. Unfortunately the room they gave me was still in use. With empty beer cans all over, an unmade bed and the highlight – something floating in the toilet.

The girl at the front desk was a lot less disturbed than me by all of this. In return for my inconvenience I was offered something far greater than any monetary compensation – the indifferent apology of a dying soul who is merely biding her time until death alone sets her free of the life to which she has condemned herself.

Overall 3 stars. Out of 20. One of the shittiest places I have ever stayed. But there's nothing floating in my new room so I can deal with the blankets that smell like BO.

Note to management: A burned out, crispy Vegas lifer needs more than just orange short shorts to make her appearance tolerable.

Tomorrow's target: Utah or Colorado. And a very thorough, hot, disinfecting shower.
