My first day in Vegas with the Oxfam Crusaders was great - the journey was a bit long, but I got to watch Ted on the plane - a real hero of mine.
You'll see in the pictures, I went training with the team. The rugby pitch looks out on to a desert and I was a bit scared of the eagles flying over head.
I went to dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe, it was awesome. We had a long table and there was 18 of us including me - I had fun, until I got used as a volleyball whilst food was coming out too slow.
I managed to get a picture with a couple of Crusaders, we did it like the front of a rap album to improve my street cred over here.
I eyed up the Monte Carlo casino, but turns out I couldn't go there, because I'm a stuffed bear.
New York New York was cool - I stopped traffic for that picture!
I think I'm going to a shooting range and on a zip wire today - that should be fun. But first, more training.
Overall thoughts; it's a little bit different from Devon.
