S2:E7 – Covid and Loathing in Las Vegas

We can’t live like every day is a vacation – we’d probably die (and we’d definitely blow through our savings). So most of our days on the road are like real life, with a vacation thrown in here and there. Back in more optimistic times, we had planned to spend my 40th birthday in Vegas. But then things went weird again. What’s it like in Las Vegas right now? We’ll tell you what we saw.
