Salt Lake City – Monday 17th October, 2011

Howdy folks!  There’s a snake in ma’ boot!

I write this having returned back to the UK after my latest trip to the States between the 17th and 25th of October, 2011.

I was lucky enough to take my sister Lorraine away so that she could shop till she dropped; only she didn’t drop!  Our flight through Chicago was a little less eventful than the one I’d experienced recently in June; I say a little less because our bags were delayed yet again, and it was only through Amy’s relentless intervention that we got our cases within 24 hrs (early hours that following morning to be precise!).

Monday 17th October, 2011

Both Lorraine and I slept pretty much the whole way, so we arrived refreshed and ready to go!  Our first stop was to pop to the Guitar Centre in Salt Lake City where I picked up an Electro Harmonix Ravish Sitar pedal and an Electro Harmonix Big Muff pedal for good measure!  I got a fantastic deal on both gadgets, the Ravish sitar pedal is absolutey sick!

We then popped to Walmart and I did some Christmas shopping (scandal!) and grabbed a few bargains.  Lorraine loved Walmart, it is a fantastic place to get good deals!  Amy and I introduced Lorraine to Applebees beforehand, and I retired for bed, rather full from gorgeous steak and baby back BBQ ribs!  Lovely jubbly!  We stayed with Brad, Becca and several other members of Amy’s family; a pleasure to see them as always!

You know you’ve arrived in American when……………
