LV: Excalibur. Let's say it's the most worn down of all hotels on the strip, but to be on the strip was a requirement. The kids liked it though, and we still had a great time, even if the newer ones looked a lot more inviting ... but then, it was also a budget question.
We stayed there about 20+ years ago and it was the most worn down then. Sounds like it hasn't been refurbished in the intervening years!

Thanks! And these are the bad photos, because we took all the great photos with my wife's camera and then accidentally erased them all the day after we got home.

Yeah, it doesn't seem like they invested a lot ... I wonder how they can compete with all the fancy places.
The Knights Show in the basement wasn't bad though.

Tournament of Kings, I mean.

Planning Strategy

It is obvious that our intense trip (3300+ miles to connect 15 locations in 28 days) required plenty of precise planning.
I am getting a lot of questions how we did this precise planning, and why this was liberating (and not constraining) for us (seemingly paradox).
I am more than happy to share our planning methods and considerations (just not publicly in the forum). If you are interested you can send me a private message and I can give you insight in the material.

When planning this trip, I had seriously considered to defer it to 2020 ... so glad now that I didn't.
Probably many of you are browsing trip reports for mental travelling and dreaming, I certainly do.
I really hope this crazy situation will not last too long, and all of you planning similar trips get the chance to do so soon.
I wish all of you the strength, patience and sense of community that we will all need to get through this!
