Over our retirement years we had 3 RVs

In one of these rigs, we wound up in Las Vegas in the late afternoon. Our RV tour guide book mentioned that the Circus Circus casino had an RV  park. Great. Though we’re not compulsive gamblers, we do enjoy it now and then. Marie only plays the slots, and I only head for the crap tables. I should mention here that I always play “double odds” and have never walked away from a craps table a loser.

At Circus Circus, we decided to limit our play to 20 bucks. Marie lost her 20 in 20 strokes in a dollar machine. Quite discouraged, she went back to our room.

I was ahead a little over $200, when a women squeezed in and asked me to teach her how to play! Can you imagine this? I couldn’t believe it…this just isn’t done! I wondered if the pit boss may have sent her to disrupt my play and stop my winnings. Well, if so, it sure worked. I cashed out, and we left the casino the next morning. We didn’t even have any meals there. We ate dinner and breakfast in our rig.

After Marie got back to our room that night, she took our camera out and took a picture of the magnificent sign!

Here it is, in all its glory. R1-8

George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
