Stephen, Dan and Chipp announced earlier this fall that they would no

Actually Vegas, because of massive subsidies from the casinos, is  
very affordable. BUT... Vegas in late summer!?!?!?! Can you say 120° 
F? Okay, how about 49°C? April or May, October or November, okay.  
Vegas in August is hot, crowded, hot, and hot. Did I mention it's  
really hot then? :-)

Now Seattle or Vancouver--that's where you want to go in late summer.
