Corpus for my group was a blast. We rented a townhome on Padre. We had a 3 bedroom place for 4 of us (2 full baths). We were 20 minutes from the bowl. We were right by a marina. Other friends of ours were less than 5 minutes away. We partied between our places. The other place was right on the beach. On the last full day there, we bowled the 7am D/S squad. When we were done, we went to the dog track. Had an absolute blast. Then went out for a great seafood dinner.
Vegas for me was fun but I would do things differently if I went there again. We had a free hotel off of the strip. Taking the shuttle was a pain and by the time I was getting back to the hotel, I was taking a cab most nights (I should say mornings). On top of that, one of the guys I bowled with got married out there. We were busy doing wedding stuff a good portion of time.
Bowling and the heat were a different story. I had a real hard time getting my fingers/thumb in my equipment. Before we bowled D/S, I had my hand in a bucket of ice on and off for an hour. I about used easy slide on my hand. That is how bad it was. The bowl wasn't that hot but my body was not taking well to the heat.
