Going to the US for the first time ever on Thursday. Gonna spend some time in Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and various national parks around Utah. Should be neat!

Have fun.

Don't know how much time you'll have, but there are some neat pre-columbian indian cliff dwellings and petroglyph sites around that area too.

Don't forget the Hoover Dam!

My first trip to the US was last year, and didn't quite have time to see the Grand Canyon from the ground.

I went out of my way to take the longest possible tour of Hoover Dam though. As a civil engineer, it was a highlight of the trip.

This is probably your last chance to see the Hoover Dam anyway; I heard they're considering renaming it the Mikko and Gambini Monument of Awesomeness thanks to the exposure we gave it in DNF2013.

I recall there being 2 statues.

I’m spending the long week end in Australia’s second largest city.

The second statue is of their moms, so visitors would think actual men were involved in the construction.

Trip's over, doesn't look like I missed anything here :P

Was pretty nice, very friendly people, clear/direct communication and customer service almost everywhere.

The trip back was a bit longer than expected, it was supposed to be Las Vegas -> Salt Lake City -> Amsterdam and then a train back to Belgium from there, but our first flight was delayed making us miss the connection. At first Delta (the airline) rescheduled us for the next day on a flight from Salt Lake City to Detroit, then from Detroit to Minneapolis, then finally from Minneapolis to Amsterdam. I rejected that as I saw Salt Lake City had a flight leaving to Paris almost the very moment we arrived and asked to be put on that. Thankfully there was still room..

But the Paris Charles De Gaulle airport is a bit shitty and France is just not efficient at all compared to the US.. So when we arrived there it was another puzzle to figure out how to get back to Belgium. Had to take several trains but we did get home in the end, 25 hours after leaving our hotel in Vegas. :P

Flight from Salt Lake City to Paris took 9 hours
Getting from Paris to Ghent (about 300 km) took 8 hours (this includes waiting for trains though to be fair.. but still. A bit ridiculous). Public transport, ugh

Anyway I complain but it was a nice trip, I'll post some pics soon

Delayed flights in the US are extremely common unfortunately. Happened to me twice on my trip.

How was Hoover Dam?

Pretty much what everyone I know says about it. Even the extended tour that supposed to go down into some of the deeper portions of it isn't that much more interesting.
I drove across it a few times & stopped at one of the overlook points along the highway, that's enough of a tour for me.

There's a pretty nice view from an observation deck they have in there which I think can only be accessed via a guided tour.

It is legitimately interesting how they managed to finish it in so little time, I don't think something like that could be made that quickly today.
