    Two days in the Las Vegas area...

    So, right off the bat: I realize Front Sight isn稚 the most high-speed cutting edge firearms training in the world.

    However, I can take their classes for free... and my department counts them as annual training hours... so I try to take one or two every year.

    In a few months I値l be attending two four day courses on consecutive weekends. The first is actually a night course... so in between the two I値l have a Tuesday that I知 recovering, and a Wednesday and a Thursday with nothing to do.

    I値l be alone, but I知 not a big drinker, gambler or tiddy bar type... more the spa day type.

    So what would you do if you were me?

    I know there are some track day opportunities.... recommendations?

    Anything else?

    I got a suuuuper cheap AirBnB at Lake Las Vegas in Henderson over the summer for a week. Great pool to sit in if the weathers going to be decent, overlooking the lake.

    If you池e outdoorsy at all, Red Rock Canyon west of town is pretty scenic.
    Valley of Fire State Park North of town an hour or so is also nice.

    If you go out hiking/desert you could see if any places have electric fat tire bikes to rent. You can get in 30 miles easy on those in a trip

    Well, the Ventitian is cheaper than the Holiday Inn in Pharump... so I'll probably just hang out, hydrate to get ready for 4 days in the Nevada summer sun and eat some good food.
