It does rock. A couple tips: 1)fly into Reno rather than cross country drive, 2)bring a girl cause 1/4 of the stuff is couples based, and 3) don't accept any brownies on the day you have to drive back to town.

I used to box and would totally feel time slow down. A second is a VERY long time when people are able to throw four or five punches a second. And when you get hit, it goes even slower.
