Everything in life is about statistics or odds.
Things you think about doing, things you're about to do and even things by chance are weighed and measured then decided whether to chance 'em or not.
Da Wife and I were very fortunate in having been able to travel yearly in years past but once I got laid off and then Da Baby arrived, that was a nicety we gave up without hesitation. We love to travel but haven't planned on any kine of travel for at least a few years so what would have been the odds for us to travel this year?
Pretty darn good especially if it's free! In a little over 24 hours I'll be pressing my luck at the infamous statistic and odds capital of the world... Vegas!
I have no idea what the odds are of winning a radio contest offered to the Vegas crazed State of Hawai'i is but to have won it twice in eight years I gotta be pressing my luck right?
Well, I do have to send out a huge Mahalos to Kerri (co-worker back then) who eight years ago gathered the missing info needed and called me the morning of to enter the contest and secure the inaugural win. A few weeks ago she texted me the info I missed in the current promotion along with, "deja-vu?" and the rest is history although she was da one saying,
Wassup Wit Dat!
It actually couldn't have come at a better time because we definitely need a break. Work has been hectic (don't know wat da odds were for getting my time off approved) and even Da Wife really needed a break from her 50+ hour work weeks.
We haven't been to Vegas in nearly two years and we all know Vegas changes overnight so I gotta ask any Vegas-socialite, wat has changed? Wat is it dat you do wen you go there besides gambling of course. Do you try and find new things to do or do the same routine wen you're there?
Da Wife and I naturally hit up all the outlet malls but we also try to drive around and find things to do as well. Da last time we were at Red Rock National Park and even at a couple of Man vs Food eateries as well. We did da Hoover Dam but not haven't seen the new over pass and once my friends and I even went go-kart racing.
Has anybody been to Area 51? White-water rafting? Canyon trails?
