I'm down in Vegas for a few more days. We ended up hiking in Red Rock canyon, which is about 20 minutes from the Vegas strip. I recommend you checking out this beautiful place. There is more to Vegas than the damn strip LOL, no one seems to understand that. Not every person who lives in Vegas lives on the strip far from it, most like to be as far away from the strip as possible. Anyways I took some pictures and a video hiking in Red Rock Canyon, enjoy.

Hello! Remember me? Yeah I don't post much anymore, it's the way it is live with it! Surprisingly I feel like posting today, wow. I'm heading back down to Vegas to close on 2-3 more rental properties, yeah I'm a machine I can't stop. I get a rush from buying investment properties and I like the monthly checks in the mail . I'm heading down and staying for 10 days, the weather in Vancouver is on/off rain and sun so it's not too bad but the sunny 30 celcius temps of Las Vegas will be very welcome.
I'm on quest to make my $1,000 day profit which looks like it's going to happen in the next month, soo stoked on that. I have been trying to find a way to get my profits with soo many of my old marketing ways becoming obsolete it has been a real challenge to say the least. It looks like what I am doing now is working, so I will be pushing forward in that direction fo shizzle..
I'm thinking once I reach my goal I will treat myself to an IPhone so I can waste even more time online for no reason, LOL. There is no point in working hard if you don't have some fun and enjoy yourself, right? The IPhone has some great uses and cool applications that will come in handy, still a waste of $$$ but whatever. I'm thinking I will use it to post pictures on Twitter instantly so people can see what I'm up to at that exact second. Silly? Yeah maybe but everyone else is doing, I need to join the crowd right!
If anyone has info on where to get the best IPhone plan in Vancouver, email me please.
Hiking This Morning
I just got back from hiking in Deep cove North Vancouver on the Baden and Powell trail which is pretty cool. We ended hiking 4 kilometers (there & back), to the Indian Arm lookout point which is very scenic (see pics below). I was tired doing the hike because I'm out of shape but it was fun and felt great after wards. I'm thinking this should be a weekly thing, it's free, peaceful and a good way to unwind and it's only about 15 minutes away from my house.
PS: I'm not sure if I'm going to post more, we will see if this blogging energy keeps up!

Eating dried seaweed, and it actually was pretty good. I wish she would have brought more!

Hiking up Baden & Powell trail, it takes about one hour each way for us out of shape people.

the small island on the right is for sale for only $7,000,000 and it has 3 houses on it but no running water. You can commute by boat to work.
That's all for now, time to hit Price Smart for some food shopping… Ciao
It looks like the fun is coming to an end. I only have a few more days in this desert dream land. I have offers on 16 places, but my goal is to buy 3 condos out of the 16 that I put offers on. I am waiting to hear back from many of the offers I put in, then I will choose exactly which condos I want to buy. Las Vegas real estate is crazy at this point and you need to put in a bunch of offers, because many times there are multiple offers, so if you only put an offer on 1 place unless you want to pay asking price then you may lose it. I'm not paying asking price that's for sure, lol. I'm low balling on many places and others I am putting offers $5,000 to $7,000 less than asking price. Asking price is usually about $75,000 for a two bedroom with a 1 car garage condo, so it will cash flow even at that price.
My friend Paul is down here (from Vancouver), he just bought a 2 bedroom condo near the strip and is doing some touch ups to it before he gets a property management company to do the rental managing for it. Good to see some people taking my advice.
Hopefully I know the result of the others offers I put today. I need to leave Vegas this week, but not before I see these places in person.
And if my fucking hosting provider (IValueHost.net) doesn't get there shit together, I am going to find new web hosting, this is complete bullshit. I can't even call you assholes on the phone because you never pick up the phone! I want reliable service please, you jackasses!. Moving wordpress blogs takes a bit of time and that is the only reason I haven't moved it over yet, dickheads!
I snapped some photos of random stuff, as well…
I painted 2 walls in the condo a yellow, these will be the accent walls. I will come back in October and paint the rest of the condo a pale yellow I'm thinking..

The last time Commercial Drive hosted Italian Day was back in 1982 (I was 12) when Italy. I’m not 100% sure why they stopped Italian Day but last Sunday it was back in full force. They closed of all of Commercial from Broadway right down to Venables Street and it was packed. Even thought it was cold and damp out the turn out was very impressive. This year the world cup is happening and Commercial will be the center stage for all the soccer games at the Italian coffee bars. Enjoy the photos.
pretty cool Italian graffiti soccer player!
