That can be pushing it, and still makes for a lot of driving. I've done the round trip from Phoenix to Las Vegas and back in a day, one load each way, and afterwards, you maybe have 10 mins left on your clock, working local, I spend less than half my day actually driving

I believe the deal is he only does it three days a week. Which I think is pretty nice. And it is a specialty...dangerous chemicals...so he makes a whole lot of money.

One thing I should have included in the poll is conventions. LV is the #1 place in the US and maybe the world for conventions hosting some as big as 175K and in the past as many as 200K ! With its numerous hotels rooms and other infrastructures LV is able to to that.

There are a lot of tourists. That's the impression that most will ever have.

I think about partying mostly but the food and hotels are also great. Then I think about conventions and entertainment.
