Thanks Ian!

Things are somewhat firmed up now with an RV being confirmed for us to use between LAS and DEN .

Do you have any tips for a first timer to the states?

Cheer's!

Get a good tipping app on your phone. Tipping is my biggest bug-bear with the states.
That plus the fact that taxes are often not shown as part of the displayed price of something, meaning things look cheaper than they really are.

Pity the AUD is on the slide for your trip, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it anyway!

Hahaha, yes! I've not had to deal with mandatory tipping for a while!

I'll check out the Android store and see what I can find in the way of apps.

I've been keeping a keen eye on the AUD, wish I had of stockpiled some more USD a few months ago! I have been getting annoyed with the way taxes don't appear, particularly when booking hotels. Thankfully IHG were a little kind to us and the position of Point Breaks properties for this period covered our NYC - DTW routing with 5000 points a night hotels.

I just had a look through all our DL reservations online to make sure nothing has changed ( They've changed seating on the sly a few times on us now) And it look's like my MD90 sector is now being operated by an A320 :( May have to see what I can do about getting another MD sector somewhere.
