The Cousins on the River
Most years for the last several, Nick- Deb Bacon, Jeff – Vic Bacon, Brenda and I have made the run to Laughlin for cruising on the river show.
Sometimes it’s cold and windy, sometime pleasant. This year it was pretty nice. They get 200 hundred or so cars for this show. Bill and Nancy Wilkins have been to every show both Jan and sept versions.
We had a non -eventful run up to the river on Thursday, spent some time in the Casino before calling it day. Friday’s show and shine was good weather again and the cars were coming in steady all day.
The lot was pretty much full by 3PM. We saved our places and went back to our casino. The show is at the Riverside, but we prefer to stay at the Tropicana.
Had a great Birthday dinner my belated, and Nicks Jan B-day, then hit the Casino for a while.
Saturdays show was packed, they sure need more room for cars. The Sept show used to be twice as big but the Jan show is gaining on it.
Always see some unusual rides here, this year we had a Graham Hollywood, a sectioned 51 Chevy, and a nice 49 Willy’s panel jeep, along with many other nice but typical cars.
All in all a great weekend and some quality fam-time.
