Can I ask a favour? I've rebranded my little marketing business, Chris does Content, and approval from my audience helps me win new customers. If you enjoyed my work on the Fallout New Vegas Tour, I'd be really grateful if you visited me here and clicked the Facebook "Like" button at lower right. Thanks!

In the final stages of planning

The list's now final. My itinerary now covers 40 locations on the New Vegas game map - some of which have interiors - meaning there's at least 60 pictures if I get around them all in five days (unlikely.) Oddly, since my route is a clockwise involute curving northeast from the Strip then describing a series of arcs towards the southeast, south, and west, the most difficult ones come on Day One - The Devil's Throat and Bitter Springs. Both are hundred-mile drives involving plenty of unpaved roads.

Hotels are largely booked, and are part of the tour too: I'll be staying at the Gomorrah, Silver Rush, Bison Steve's, and- if I can find it - Novac's Dino-dee-Lite Motel. The last is going to be the biggest problem.. .because Novac has no real-world double. (The town's name in the game comes from a half-working "No Vacancy" sign.) Nor is Novac's dinosaur a real clue: Dinky the T-Rex was inspired by faraway Cabazon. But I've worked out roughly where Novac is, and if there's a real motel there, I'm staying in it.
