Starting last Sunday we drove from Minnesota to Iowa to Nebraska to Colorado to Nevada to Utah to a tiny bit of Arizona and finally to California. We are exhausted but happy- now it's time to focus on getting the apartment together and finding work.
In case you're wondering, we stayed at the Golden Gate Casino in Las Vegas, which is in the "old" section of Vegas. We eventually made our way over to strip, but I enjoyed the Container Park (plenty of artsy shops and bars) and the Fremont Street Experience (weird light shows? tiny bayou themed coin slot machine casinos? yes) the most. The hotel itself was kind of a mess though, so I'd recommend finding lodging elsewhere.
