Then this September I started noticing cars, race cars, lots of them. Now, it could have been because all the Newfie race car drivers decided to go for a spin at the same time, or because of the fact it was during the 10th Newfoundland Targa (54 cars finished). For those of you who don't know about Targa Newfoundland according to their site, it is the first and only event of it's kind to be held in North America. This September, a multimillion dollar, one of a kind, Ferrari Enzo, plunged into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Marystown, Newfoundland. The owner (God love him) handled it quite well. Read the CTV news article.

I was discussing this event to a owner of a Porche 911 and he started talking about his to-do list for his trip to Vegas. In case you are one of the many people who suck at being a tourist like me, I want to let you in on several unique maybe-not-so-obvious experiences that you can have if you ever decide to travel to Vegas. I'll also mention several local alternatives.

#2. Jump off the Stratosphere with SkyJump Las Vegas. If you YouTube this, you will get many entertaining reactions of people taking their very first jump from the SkyJump's wrist camera which can be supplied during the event. You can do this during the day or night. For those who cannot make it to Vegas to zip through the sky, there are several local options. Marble Zip Tours has eight zip lines and is located in (you guessed it) the Marble Mountain ski resort in Corner Brook. Here is a blog of someone who has experienced it. Marble Zip Tours also have ATV tours. Zip the North Atlantic has seven zip lines (according to the government) and is located in Petty Harbour, 20 minutes from downtown St. John's.

So, go to Las Vegas next week. Beat the bald Ferrari driver. This is me, zip-lining to the races NL.
