Paul Carr Las Vegas Adventure

Paul Carr, a British author and columnist is heading to Las Vegas. His plan is to stay at a different Strip hotel every night over the course of a month. By his count he will be staying at 33 different joints. He will document the adventure via The Huffington Post.

The trip seems pretty unorganized. He is staying at Sahara for the first night (does he know it's closing?) After that he says, "I'll just follow the best deals along the strip, writing about whatever fun occurs along the way."

I've daydreamed about doing a trip like this. I suppose many Vegas geeks have thought about doing something similar. In my dream trip I plan on staying at every Vegas casino-hotel, including downtown and locals places. I think the count would be around 75 hotels.

I'll definitely be following Carr's daily updates. It looks like he will be writing a lot of human interest stories, which is fine but I hope he writes about the hotels also. Check out the first installment at Huffington Post. He also has a Twitter account where he will be updating his exploits.
