Having returned from the trip, I'm glad to say it went well and safely - apart from the Grizzly bear confrontation, but more of that later. During my absense two columns have appeared in the Sun. This is the first, a trip to Primm's Buffalo Bill's - http://www.sbsun.com/news/ci_23657428/get-primed-vegas-stop-primm
Also the second colunmn on the Casa 425 in Claremont was printed. You might like to check out this delightful place http://www.sbsun.com/news/ci_23701526/its-good-time-visit-claremonts-village-inn
Eventually I'll report on this amazing trip that we took, but for now I'm glad to be back and sleeping betweeen sheets!
