Mohegan Sun

Spending a week in Uncasville, CT this week. Mohegan Sun has the largest casino floor I have ever been on. My feet have the blisters to prove it. I never thought I would have a problem with the shoes that I have been wearing, but boy was I wrong. The Casino of the Sky was my favorite as far as decoration goes. I however loved the Casino of the Earth because of the cool ass wolves on top of the slot banks. Someone told me that they are on timers and one of the employees told me they howl when someone hits a jackpot. During the whole week I was there I only heard them howl once so I would believe the later was true.

While I was there I made it out to the US Naval Submarine Museum in Groton, Connecticut. It's kind of sad that it might not be open much longer. It receives no funding and depends on donations to keep the doors open. I found it interesting to see the history of subs and learned some things that I was not aware of.
