    I'd be down for this Wednesday morning/afternoon, if I had transportation (could kick a few bucks for gas of course). Wednesday day is usually a rather dead day for me. It'd be nice to see something that is not vegas. Are swimsuits required?

    I like option #1, depending on how long it'll take to get there (#2 as an alternate).

    (grocery run afterwards, but before sushicon?)

    It turns out there are some Hot Springs very near lake Meade.

    It might be a nice way to relax after the stress of the con -

    ASH SPRINGS:

    Each hot springs site has its own character, says aficionado Dave Phillips of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). But if you could conjure up an oasis in the desert, he says, Ash Springs would be it. Found on BLM land just off U.S. Route 93 north of Las Vegas, along a dirt road across from R Place, the spring is surrounded by lush vegetation amid a sea of dry grass and brush. Eighty-five-degree water is piped into a pool block-reinforced to form a comfortable place to sit. The spring spills over into a natural shallow pond pleasantly shaded by huge, venerable cottonwood trees.

    or there's these:

    ROGERS SPRINGS AND BLUE POINT SPRINGS:

    Closer to Vegas, several hot springs are near Lake Mead on lands administered by the National Park Service. Just off the North Shore Road or SSR 167, between Echo Bay and Overton, is Roger's Springs, a clean, shallow pool, that overflows into a little waterfall. However, Naegleria fowleri signs are posted at Roger's Springs. Pleasant bathing and picnic areas are also available a couple of miles north on North Shore Road, just off Stewart's Point, at Blue Point Springs, where the water is a few degrees warmer.

    4 HOT SPRINGS BELOW HOOVER DAM:

    Four hot springs, all accessible by foot or boat, can be found below Hoover Dam along the Colorado River. NOTE: The National Park Service recommends against hiking into hot springs beneath Hoover Dam in the summer months. Not only is it dangerous to overexert yourself when it's hot, but snakes are more prevalent during the summer.
