Mon. Feb. 20th, Love Casino deals!

Thanks for joining us on our journey of North America 
 in our Holiday Rambler, since August 2006

Where are we today ?

        More sunshine, warm weather and taking life easy. Great for a holiday monday, Presidents Day here and Family Day back home in Ontario. Coffees, computing walkabouts, chat with a few neighbors. Its all good. Down by the river again, and chat with a few more people, commenting  that the river level is dropping a bit. It's controlled by many dams on it's long journey south. The Hoover dam, Davis Dam and Parker Dam to name a few that I know of. But we are in a nice spot.

        Now we checked out a few things and found out that AVI Resort and Casino has a Monday Buffet Special that sounds good. So at 11:30 am  we hop in the car and drive from California across the river to Arizona north a bit , back across the river to Nevada and we arrive at the casino 20 minutes later at 10:50 am. The time zones can really screw you up here, but we got it figured out sometimes!

here we are
        In the Casinos they really don't want you to take pictures, I would just love to, but....
So once here we walk past hundreds of slot machines to get a players card and take advantage of the deals. And a few minutes later we have our free players card and can now go for the lunch buffet deal.  It's only $7.99 with our card, bit on Monday's its two for one, good deal eh? Its a pretty decent buffet, they have pretty well all you could want Mexician, roast turkey, ham, pork loin, beef ribs, salmon, shrimp, catfish, chicken, soups, rices, vegetables, varieties of potatoes, pasta, pizza, an excellent salad bar and amazing deserts including sugar free and make you own soft ice cream sundays.

        I think that was a good deal now and for $2.00 I can have a large draft beer as well, so $9.99 we had a feast for the two of us (more than we should have eaten, but it was soo good). Now the deal did not stop there, for getting a new players card we each got $5.00 free play on the slot machines. So now we gotta use up that $5.00 worth on entertainment that lasted close to 45 minutes for each of us on the penny machines, loose, win, loose, win, loose, win then loose it all. At one point Suzie could have walk away with nine dollars but what the heck, either we win big or play until its gone.

        Then we just walked about the casino and checked out the beautiful pool area and beach outside right on the river. A little cool to swim but still a  beautiful day.

        Even a pontoon plane here picking up someone from the hotel.

        Now a fun day of eating, gambling and checking out the area at a total cost of $9.99  back in the car for a quiet desert drive back to our resort and relax with our books in the sun for a while.

        Now about 4 it was time for a Happy (social) hour with our new neighbors Cliff and Greta from Alberta. They have been full time now for 17 years and have loved every minute of it. He thinks maybe when he turns 80 (in three years) they may ? retire from rving, he promised himself 20 years of this lifestyle, maybe more. So we chatted and chatted some more, Suzie got to play with another neighbor's dog that walked by getting her dog fix once again.

        Ok let these people have supper now, we can go back home, finish reading our books. Kinda nice we don't have to stop to eat, did enough of that today!

        Wonder what kind of deals we can find tomorrow! Thanks again for dropping by.
