Daydreaming about Vacation

Zip LIne, Sports, Bootleg Canyon, Boulder City, Adventure

Presently I vacation by daydreaming about previous vacations. Several years ago we (the family) wanted to do something special and we thought zip lining would be perfect. Just outside of Las Vegas in Bootleg Canyon we traveled to the top of a mountain to go zip lining. All we could say was “WOW!” That’s Ashley on my left.

The young lady is my daughter giving me that special look.
“Why are you annoying me Dad?”
“Because it’s what I do best!” I answer.
We were in Las Vegas at the time.
The best place to be annoying.

Viva la Polaroid!

Polaroid

Long Live Polaroid!

Not actual Polaroid photos but taken standing inside a Polaroid frame and with a digital camera (I guess that contradicts the title). These are 3 separate photos taken in the Fotobar in Las Vegas that celebrates, and sells, Polaroid products. On the second floor is a museum. No charge, and worth a visit. The main floor sells products relating to Polaroid. In the corner is the large frame pictured above for personal photography. With computers at your disposal, you can upload any photo for a “Polaroid” type of print. It was great fun and highly recommended to visit.
Google “fotobar” for more info.

Star Trekker

Star Trek, Enterprise, Space Ship, Science Fiction, TV, Television

I have been a Trekkie/Trekker since the beginning. Or almost the beginning. I started watching at the 3rd episode in 1966 and haven’t stopped. I, along with some friends, were at the first (and I do mean FIRST) Star Trek convention in New York City at the Statler Hilton Hotel in 1972. (The hotel has since changed hands and is across from Penn Station.) 500 fans were expected to show up. Over 3000 did, along with Gene Roddenberry and other notable guests.

As the years passed, I have watched hours of Trek reruns, the new spinoff shows, the movies, etc. In my heart, the original Star Trek with Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy  is (and always will be) my favorite.

The photograph above was made in 2006 in the Las Vegas Hilton. For several years the “Star Trek Experience” was on display there. There were gift shops, several restaurants, 2 Trek adventures (sorta like a ride), actors dressed up as characters and plenty of props and a history of Star Trek. And hanging from the ceiling were several ships. Very BIG ships. Above, on the left, is “Voyager” from the show of the same name, and the Enterprise from Star Trek:The Next Generation.


Zip Lining!

Zip LIne, Sports, Bootleg Canyon, Boulder City, Adventure

We wanted to do something special on our vacation last year and we thought zip lining would be perfect. Just outside of Vegas in Bootleg Canyon is where we traveled to the top of a mountain, courtesy of the company who ran the zip line. There we rode 4 separate lines down the canyon totaling about a mile in length. All we could say was “WOW!”

The image was a grab from the GoPro camera on my chest. That’s my daughter on the left.
