We survived our first day of travel across the scorching Mojave Desert.  Taking five hours, we pulled
into Las Vegas just in time for dinner with Sheila and Rich Gray.  Sheila is the chapter president of the
Scleroderma Foundation, Las Vegas Chapter.  We were greeted by a valet team ready for our arrival,
providng special parking for our van and trailer.

As guests of Sheila and Rich, we had a wonderful time, enjoying a prime rib dinner and martinis.  
Ophie gambled at the nickel slots, winning more than $80.  WOW!

Retiring early, we prepared for a new day on the road to Salt Lake City.  Sheila gave us additional
items for the raffle and to help raising money while at The Buffalo Chip.  Thanks, Sheila!

Over dinner we discussed ways to carry on our fundraising efforts into 2007.  Stay tuned for future
ann ouncements.  Enjoy the pictures.
