From grabbing a private jet charter all by myself, to off-roading in the desert — anything is possible in Las Vegas! Locals get a kick out of how many of the tourists who descend on our town think that there is no life beyond the Strip. Aside from the homes, restaurants, bars, grocery stores and everything else you could imagine, Vegas is home to a LOT of outdoor and adventure activities. Recently, I’ve zip-lined, been a biker chick, and even snow skied — yes, all in Vegas. This time, I got my adventure fix by off-roading, an activity with major history behind it thanks to the famous Mint 400 race, which inspired a certain Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Take it from me, after trying it just one time, you will see why he so fell in love with it. It was awesome! Here I am all smiles before taking off. The nerves came later!
