I was the first Active Rain member to do (what?) with Vegas Bob this week - 01/29/10 01:58 PM
I went to Las Vegas from Sunday to Wednesday for the RESA convention. Well, I didn't go to all of the convention, I went along with my mother for the networking and it was a lot of fun. Since I was going to be in Vegas, of course I had to meet my very famous online friend, Vegas Bob. Even though he had a cold and had worked all day, Bob came to the strip to take me on a tour of the City Center. Of course, he had his camera. I am not used to being photographed.
