Lately, Every. Day. Is. Torturous. The alarm goes off at 5:30am. I'm out the door around 6:15. I get home between 8:00 and 9:00 pm. Every. Day. And, the hours in between generally suck. Every. Day. Thinking about summer, and vacation, keeps me going. This week, I booked my annual Vegas trip. June 3rd through 12th. Venue: Signature. And this trip is going to be different. Inspired by last summer's treck through Badlands and Yellowstone, I'm planning to spend some time away from the strip. I'm renting a car. I've got an overnight hiking trip planned to Zion, Utah. Also day trips to Red Rock, Valley of Fire and, perhaps, some others. Nature in favor of monkey mash. And pool time. Lot's of it. Yes, there will be gambling. Hopefully, mainly, poker. But, overall, I'm shooting for a different kind of Vegas adventure in 2016.
And now, back to the grind.
