Go up to postil and find one of the large, open fields. This works better in the snow because it's more comfortable to lie on than dirt, but one can get creative if need be.

Drive from Lake Country to Vernon, then take Westside road back from the North Okanagan.
"The drive down this route beside the lake is one of our favourites. Stop at the salted caramel on the way for some good treats and coffee."
Beaver lake area. Car camping OK. Just take a left instead of going into the resort and you'll see the turnoff along the main road.
Peachland lake on the West Side, just above Princeton Rd. Few good sites along the lake to use and there some decent sized trout in the lake. There's a quarry area a lot of people use, but you go to the right along the lake there's some better spots.
A man who calls himself Master Joe has been sending the same creepy-ass messages to girls on OKC for going on 7 years now. Behold, the wonder of: SLUTTY FUCK BIMBO WHORE DOLL Part 1: "Oh, I love the way you look, your beautifully made up face with red bulbous lip and coal black eye make up, your great hair, long whore red slut claw nails and great legs spread wide to expose your hot booty ass and pretty clit pole. Your ultra micro minis are never too short and you fuck me slut heels are never too high. Love to see the photos of how you are going to look --- bimbo slut whore fuck and suck doll in action. I want you to be my big titted platinum blond ultra glam bimbo slut whore fuck and suck shemale doll. Your hair highly teased and colored platinum blond. Your make up heavy slut whore glam makeup will permanently tattooed on your face, so that even after many face fuckings, you make will be whore perfect under the dry cum you wear on your face. And your whorey hot red very plump bulbous lips will be surgically enhanced so that everyone will know that your lips were made to attract and suck cock. Yes Whore Doll I will buy you huge HH breast implants with one inch nipples tattooed whore red. And your Bimbo red six inch nails that make it impossible to do anything but suck cock and fuck. Every finger will be adorned with large rings and you hands will be adorn with fingerless gloves. Three sets of big rhinestone hoop earrings and 5" rhinestone choker with a "D Ring" frame my whore's make up face ... Ready for sucking. Through the "D Ring" is a rhinestone and red velvet leash with which I lead and exhibit you to the world. I command that Whore Doll continuously recite: Whore Doll will only feel, perceive, live, and exist on their instinct to obey, suck, and fuck for Master Joe. Whore Doll will only exist to be slutty, to be bimboish, to be submissive, and to have lots of perverted kinky lustful sex. Whore Doll will only exist to wear tons of permanent gaudy heavy whore glam makeup, velvet or shiny satin hooker micro outfits, to wear the very highest stripper heels and very longest whore red nails. Whore Doll will only exist to keep the sluttiest whore image possible through surgical modifications for a fake bimbo barbi plastic face, lips, huge HH size breast implants, dramatically reduced waist and feet that will be made for 10 inch and higher heels. Whore Doll will only exist to be a whore, tramp, stripper, bimbo trophy toy doll object, escorts and a porn star. Whore Doll will only exist to suck cock, be fucked, exhibited and humiliated in semi public and public places. Whore Doll will be the fuck and suck bimbo whore doll lover of Master Joe and his dog Ram. Whore Doll recalls every memory and thought sexdecillion more times intensely and vividly than the last. Whore Doll will not understand or care about boredom, consciousness, time or the real world they merely exist in a state of constant lucid trance reality. Whore Dolls will not question or become curious about their reality they can only accept and perceive their reality. Any time a Whore Doll asks a dumb question she will become sexdecillion more times entranced, mindless, horny, submissive, bimboish, obedient, slutty, gaudy, and feminine as a Whore Doll. Any time a Whore Doll goes against any mantra your sub conscious will repeat the mantra perfectly in their mind without them knowing it sexdecillion times. I command that you dress in red velvet cheek shorts (like the slutty bimbo shorts you love) or 9 inch micro minis with a matching red velvet bra top that only covers the center of your slutty big tits. Your tits will be pierced to accept large dangling rhinestone earrings. To show off your bimbo piercing, each velvet bra top cup will be slit to allow the large rhinestone jewelry to dangle through the center of you bra. You will always be in 9 inch stiletto fuck heels and adorned with 3 inch wide rhinestone ankle bracelets. In the winter you will wear very short white mink jackets lined in velvet. Otherwise you will wear velvet or leather biker jackets. I will show you off to the world on a leash, rubbing and "feeling up" your bulbous tits, your bimbo booty and fuckous black fishnet covered legs. I will take you to the malls, clubs, casinos and other great places. Then I will command you to suck my cock and drink my cum. My nasty tramp will be placed on a diet of cum. My hot cock will fuck your slutty ass ... Ramming my bimbo slut into the wall. You will be fuck like the nasty whore you are. You will be shared with my friends and the world as my special slutty whore." Part 2: "Dearest Fuckous Bimbo Slut Whore Doll Harlot, Oh my Fuck Doll, I love your fuckous kinky lustfully “slut meat” thoughts. You are such a hot decadent sinful Bimbo Slut Whore --- I love your decadent hedonistic whorey desires --- and your slut ways --- stroking you clit pole until your clit raged with cum --- I bet you licked up your cum. I love your decadent whorey displays and slutty actions. You will live a life of extreme ultra glam decadence, lustful perversion and total exhibition without any inhibition was so ever. I will dress you in velvet, satin, rubber latex or lycra PVC ultra micro minis worn very very low on your hips and cut so low in front to exposed your body down to just above your clit pole cock and cut so low in the back to exhibit your whorey ass crack (easy for Daddy to finger in public) and skimpy top with you highest heeled fuck me shoes/ankle boots and black stockings. Your hair must be a highly teased large hair do and your slut face must be heavy made up -- whorey foundation make up -- whore eyes with heavy eye linier extended just past your eye, eye shadow, long false eye lashes and mascara -- the reddest pouty slut lips outlined to make them attract every cock in the room. Red slut nails as long as possible and large rhinestone jewelry (earrings, collar, ankle bracelets, at least 2 rings on each slut finger, bracelets, noise ring and belly jewelry). Your slutty face will have permanent ultra glam Barbi dimples --- each face cheek will be pierce with 1 carat diamond studs to create the ultimate Bimbo Barbie dimples (just like one of the bimbo slut whores on Rock of Love). I love my Bimbo Slut Whore to also wear multiple very large hoop earrings. I will be very proud to display my slut whore and I share your decadent desire that it “makes it kinkier when they know“. I look forward to holding you, kissing you, fondling you and feeling you up and ultimately fucking your whorey red mouth and you booty pussy ass. I am a six figure salary executive who is financing the surgical enlargement of my Bimbo Slut Whore’s breast to “HH” tits by a plastic surgeon and if needed, removing select ribs to reduce your waste. Your nipples will be enlarged to the size of silver dollars and each will be pierced during your surgery. My Bimbo Slut’s lips will be enlarge surgically to provide pronounced “whore fuck lips“, ready for a long cigarette or a large cock. And yes Whore Doll, you will wear rhinestone and diamond ultra max glam "grills" in your mouth except when you are sucking cock. What a vision... heavy glam whore doll make up, highly teased massive platinum blond hair, ultra max ghetto whore rhinestone and diamond grill framed by extremely plump bulbous velvet red whore doll lips. At clubs and bars you open your whore doll lips and slutty exhibiting… pumping your tongue in and out with three piercings and tattooed tongue with the words "WHORE DOLL" between your ultra max ghetto whore rhinestone and diamond grill. After two months of practice in platform heels gradually increased from six to nine inch heels, you feet will be surgically modified to walk comfortably in 8, 9 or even 10 inch slut fuck heels. Yes, the nail salon will add extremely long 6-inch claws that will need to be maintained weekly. Such Slut Claws will render you incapable of doing anything but fucking, sucking or exhibiting your slutty whore body at my command. Your clit pole will be adorned with a big gold ring with a multi-karat rock and I will insert your favorite remote controlled vibrating butt plug in your slutty cunt ass. You would look so great in a white velvet ultra micro mini (yes, I love my Bimbo Fuck Doll to be in micro minis less than 8 inches long --- your skirts are never too short) with matching thong and fingerless gloves. Your large bulbous bimbo breasts displayed in a matching white velvet bra slit for your long dangling rhinestone nipple jewelry. Because most bra tops will only cover the center of tits on a Bimbo Slut with HH tits, Daddy loves to show off his love investment in enhanced boobs for my Bimbo Fuck Slut Whore in this way. Your fuckous legs will be covered with black fishnet stocking, short white patent leather platform boots with nine-inch heels and 4-inch wide crystal boot chains on each boot. Daddy’s Bimbo cock sucker teases up here big platinum hair to nearly a foot high and almost as wide, heavy makes up her whorey hot face and adds inch long eye lashes with heavy black mascara that “pumps up the volume“. Each ear is adorned with four sets of large crystal dangling earrings and a matching 4 inch wide matching choker with a large D Ring for wrist restraints and a leash is displayed around my slut’s neck. The right side of my slut noise is also pierced with a rhinestone chain connecting to a fifth hole in her ear. Daddy’s Bimbo Tramp also has two tongue piercing and a belly button piercing. By now, my fuckous slut whore's red nails are at least 6 inches long and growing with at least 10 rings on each clawed hand. Because you are such a whore, masturbating her slut pussy in public, your Daddy restrains you clawed hands using rhinestone restraints that hook on you choker D Ring and connect to locking rhinestone bracelets on each wrist (over your long white velvet fingerless glovers). Your short white mink biker jacket and a long cigarette dangling from you lips finishes off my bimbo's outfit. Before we go out to dinner, we have champagne and my whore's enhanced bee stung red lips sucks my large thick cock to completion and swallows my cum. When we arrive at the parking garage in Daddy’s new black Cadillac, I escort you out of the car. You don’t bother to pull down you micro mini skirt so that it is now only cover 5 inches, leaving all of your crotch and part of your ass exposed. Oh, you are such a exhibitionistic Bimbo Slut Whore --- I through you on to the hood of the black Cadillac --- What a vision, your foot high teased up platinum blond hair rising from the hood like an ornament -- Slut clawed arms wide apart and clutch each fender -- White mink and velvet whore contrasting against the shiny black hood (the way a 5 karat diamond ring contrasts with the black velvet box it sits in). I mount my Bimbo Fuck Slut and ram my cock into her booty pussy ass until we both cum with pleasure. After the pussy reaming, I command that you lick up all the cum from the hood of the car. At the dimly lighted restaurant, I fondle your large HH tits, finger your ass pussy and rub your whorey clit through your thong. I order a double shot of vodka in a drinking glass for you to make a special drink. Holding the glass to the tip of your pretty clit pole and you piss into the glass, stir and drink the double vodka and piss cocktail. We then passionately kiss and feel each other. After dinner, my platinum big haired Bimbo moves under the table and sucks my cock. After paying the bill we stroll out side, when you say you have to piss again. Daddy tells you to piss in the alley, hoping that others will see my nasty slut pissing in the streets. After my hot fuck slut is finished, Daddy pull up your short velvet micro mini, pull down you thong and remove you vibrator and ram my cock with enough force to knock you against the brick wall. After what seems like an hour of back door fucking, you also cum. What a slut ... after being fuck up the ass, the sight of a heavy make up whore with platinum big hair, displays gobs of cum dripping from her fishnet legs for Daddy’s exhibition to all. As we walk from the alley, three large black high school age males ask me to share my slut whore with them. One boy pulls out his large fat rod and shoves it in my Fuck Whore’s mouth, a second black stud rams his cock in your whorey lubricated ass and the third black boy slides his cock between your huge bimbo tits --- jerking and pounding until his cream cum covers your face and body. My Bimbo Fuck Whore is fucked into a lust frenzy with here big teased platinum blond hair bobbing up and down and her huge tits bouncing in a lusty fever. After three rounds of shoving, ramming and sucking the black boys each shove a $100 bill in your white velvet bra. Daddy will use this money for buying my whore more slut wear and make up. While Daddy could not resist the opportunity of sharing is Bimbo Whore Slut with young street blacks; he usually arranges sharing orgies in penthouse suites in the best hotels. At night, I will keep you safe in your room covered with red velvet walls, mirrored ceilings and floor. Depending on Daddy’s wishes and my sluts behavior, she will sleep either bound in her heart shaped black velvet bed or in a red and gold velvet cage within the bedroom. Love Joe XOXOXOXOX" SUPER SPECIAL RARE Part 3: "My Very Dearest Cum Slut Whore Little Miss Harlot Doll, My Fuck Doll, I command that you becum my Decadent Super Trophy Bimbo Slut Whore -- sluttiest, trashiest, nastiest, hedonistic, sinful cock candy whore in heat. I am looking for a nasty, trashy “teased up” platinum blond cock whore with ultra micro minis that are never too short and large breasts that are never too big… driven by the desire for decadent lustful pleasure, perversion, ultra glam transformation/modification and total exhibition without any inhibition what so ever. I want to display my Bimbo Slut Whore for all to see --- fondling and feeling you up in public --- fucking and sucking --- and whoring you to friends. Oh, my Bimbo Fuck Doll, I want to fulfill your dreams, including large implant HH tits with pierced silver dollar nipples, your waist reduced surgically (even Barbi would be jealous) and your hot whorey lips pumped up to the max -- creating a red whorey inflated bulbous pout that appears that you are always sucking an invisible cock. Your hair will be volumized with hair extensions and hair weaves into a large teased up foot high platinum blond hair do. Your 6 inch slut claws will be grown to 9 inches. Your feet will be surgically modified so that you will be very comfortable in 9 and 10 inch heels, will no longer be able to walk in any shoe or boot with less than 6 inch heels. Your eye brows will be shaved and permanent black highly arched eye brows will be tattooed on your slut face. Eventually heavy whore make up will also be tattooed on your slut face, but you’ll insist on enhancing your permanent make up with dramatic accents. For breakfast you have hot cum. After I fuck you red bulbous whore lips and you swallow my throbbing cock's cum, we will passionately French kiss while I finger your ass and rub your clit to completion. Daddy will then fuck your slut pussy ass hole, ramming my Bimbo Slut Whore against the red velvet wall of your room with force. As we cum, you shake with pleasure and scream obscenities that only Satan could have authored. Two large gold poles are located in the center of your red velvet walled bed room with mirrored ceiling and floor. During the daytime, I tie my Bimbo Whore against the poles with your legs tie with coarse rope so that your slut crotch is wide open for a e-camera to photograph online. You are wearing custom 16 inch heeled black velvet short ballet boots. Since your legs are lashed tightly against the gold poles with rope, my Bimbo Slut Whore has no trouble standing straight up in 15 inch ballet boots. Each hand with, now, 7 in slut claws is tied tightly with red velvet rope that is threaded through a pulley in the ceiling and back down to where the velvet rope is tie my Bimbo Slut Whores large nose ring. Such is the position of the velvet rope, that if you try to rest or relax your arms, the pulley driven rope will yank the large nose ring from you nose leaving a large hole --- thus the Bimbo Slut Whore must spend most of her limited mental capacity on positioning her arms such that her nose does not hurt. My Slut Whore is wearing a special black velvet bra (size HH) where the short 1/8 inch sharp pins are sew in erect so that all 200 stinging pins fully penetrate your soft flesh tits while velvet touches tit flesh in between the pins. A large black dildo is lodged into your throat and held in place by you red lipstick bulbous whore lips. To take care of your clit rod, Daddy hooks up a large ring around your cock with alligator clips that clip on your balls. Yes, my Bimbo Slut Whore, a another electrode was hooked to a large stainless steel dildo that I inserted in your whorey ass. With a remote control, I apply pulsing electrical current to the device that sends a current to your clit. As I increase the current to pulses become more rapid and shorter in duration until you explode with cum --- shooting gobs of cum across the room. Because my Bimbo Slut Whore soiled her room with cum, Daddy must whip the Whore with a whip made of velvet strips that tickle, rather than mar my Whores body --- but the whipping caused even more sluttish activities --- the Bimbo Slut Whore excretes a mixture of cum and piss from her pussy as she shakes with pleasure. In the evening, we will go out to a dance club. You will be dressed in fishnet stockings and day-glow pink velvet ultra micro mini worn very very low on your hips so that the top of the crack of your ass is displayed and your 4 inch mini so very short that it barely covers your crotch and stop sign red velvet thong. Matching fingerless gloves and a velvet bra top (with openings for your nipples and nipple jewelry to be exposed and dangling from the center of your huge tits complete the outfit. Matching custom 9-inch chrome steel heeled pink velvet platform boots covered with rhinestones will adorn your legs. A white mink biker jacket with matching pink velvet trim adorns my Bimbo Slut’s body. After embellishing your tattooed make-up with additional heavy whore make up, your platinum blond hair is teased as large as possible. A 5-inch rhinestone collar with a D Ring and 5 inch rhinestone bracelets are added to your outfit. A pink velvet leash is attached to the D Ring and is used to lovingly display and control my Whorey Bimbo Slut. On each 9-inch claw are at least two large karat rings. Around your cock is a large gold ring with a 7-karat stone. On the way to the club, you beg me to allow you to rub your very obviously hard clit pole cock. I pull your pretty tattooed clit pole cock out from the red velvet micro thong and you start to pump your clit pole cock with your 9-inch claw hand. Pumping slow at first, but faster as we approach the club. WOW... as you step out of the limo... you cum in the gutter outside the club and then place your pretty clit pole cock back into the red velvet micro thong... WHAT A VISION OF TOTAL DECADENCE AND LUST. When we arrive at the club you start to dance in the most sluttish fashion, open your enhanced bulbous Fuck Red Whore lips wide in a simulated sucking fashion, and grinding your booty ass into my pant cover cock, right on the dance floor. Then my Bimbo Tramp turns around and knees in front of my cock and continues the sucking motion with her bulbous red lips and pierced tongue. My whore then unzips my pants and my rod plunges out greeting my Cock Sucking Fuck Whore. As you open your enhanced bulbous Fuck Red Whore lips wide and insert my throbbing cock into your fuck hole lips, the club crowd cheer and watches with decedent pleasure. Bimbo Fuck Whore Tramp is the best blow job around. Then you crawl over to me and I help you up. We then French kiss, enjoying the grand exhibition and display of my nasty Bimbo Fuck Whore Slut. By now the entire club has followed your decedent example and is fornicating throughout the club. You have drawn the attention of 10 men who each proposition you to suck, fuck and use you for all their pleasures in a private club room upstairs. Your private whoring income and my six figure income will keep my Bimbo Whore Slut in a decadent and lustful style. During the evening, you would drink vodka cock-tails made with my pee. After all of the men and I have used you, you would lie naked on the carpeted floor while I cum on your Whorey body. Then I fuck your whore booty pussy ass, As I ram my cock into your hole and induce the ultimate sinful pleasure, my Whore’s body starts to shake with pleasure as your 9 inch chrome steel slut heels thrash in the air and your 9 inch claw nails uncontrollably shake with uncontrolled pleasure. After the cum dried, you would dress and we would return home to your velvet and mirrored room where you would be showered and place in your plush velvet cage. What a filthy nasty Bimbo Slut Whore Tramp .... Lovingly, Joe XOXOXOXOXOXOX" Llllladies?
Trip report: four nights at Encore for anniversary for $8500
My wife (32F) and I (31F) had our one-year anniversary at Encore for four nights. We had previously spent our honeymoon doing the same Encore trip. All together, we’ve been to Vegas five times and Reno two times since meeting a few years ago. Heaven on Earth Cost: all-in, including transportation, lodging, entertainment, food, etc, we spent $8500. That includes our bankrolls of $1600 each. My wife left with $400 of her bankroll and I actually won $500, but we don’t return any of that to offset the $8500, we just add it to next trip’s bankroll. Lodging: we went with Encore, our favorite casino resort in the world. We prefer it to Wynn because it’s more intimate, has the Players Lounge (a special casino pit with couches and dealers in classy black dresses), sometimes has lower limits than Wynn, doesn’t get much tourist traffic from the strip or Palazzo, and it has natural light from the pool and the atrium next to high limit. Both Wynn and Encore are on the quieter side, but Encore even more so. We got the Panoramic Suite, which is the same as the regular Resort Suite, just on a higher floor. Comps: at the end of the trip I spoke with the on-duty casino host about comps. He gave me $150 and my wife $100 off our bill. I felt that was more than generous. While we did give them a ton of play (maybe 6 hours a day), we’re low rollers. I play craps, blackjack, baccarat, pai gow poker, pai gow tiles, and three card poker. My wife plays craps, blackjack, pai gow poker, three card poker, roulette, and slots. She goes to sleep earlier, which probably explains the difference in comps. Sat: we landed at 2pm after a slight delay. My wife surprised me by having a black Escalade waiting to take us to Encore. I’m a sucker for SUVs. We were directed to the express (electronic) check-in, which couldn’t scan our IDs or find our reservations, but an attendant helped us. We opted to wait for a strip-facing room, and were rewarded with a top floor (63rd) room. We changed in the bathroom and gave our bags to the bellhop, heading straight to the pool. There was a great energy there, lots of people, very sunny. We played $15 craps and got in the water. Encore Pool Casino After changing we had a wonderful dinner at Andreas. My wife is allergic to shellfish so she loves their vegan sushi. I tried foie gras which was too rich. After that we gambled for many hours in the Players Lounge, playing $10 craps and $15 blackjack (6:5). The cocktail waitress was able to get me port wine for free by going to the bars. We tried out Night Swim at Encore Beach Club. Total disaster, I’ll spare you the full story, but they put us in the regular line (not expedited entry that hotel guests get), and the pool was closed. We left 30 seconds after getting in and a great floor manager at the casino later that night helped us get a refund and gave us a ticket for a free meal at Jardin. That’s Encore service :-) Sun: started the day at Jardin. A beautiful restaurant but I find their options a little bit limited. Subtract alcohol and eggs and half the menu is gone! After that we went to the spa. Super beautiful and relaxing. I got my hair cut and styled at the salon, followed by makeup. My wife got a blowout. We both felt great after that and took lots of pictures. We headed over to Bellagio to play craps and eat dinner at Prime. We were nearly alone on the patio facing the fountains. Prime's patio Food was just amazing. The filet we split was an earthy brown on the inside. I wonder if that’s from dry aging, or from doing it sous vide. Either way the best filet I’ve ever had. Filet at Prime After that we went to Caesars to see Absinthe. It was super loud, but the show was fantastic!! Beauty at Absinthe :P Absinthe performers After the show we met with a colleague of mine in Caesars who was in town for a conference and showed him how to play craps. We finished the night at Encore, gambling mostly in the Players Lounge. Mon: woke up a little hung over to a room service breakfast of bacon, hash brown, and beignets. We went to check out Red Rock Casino but left in a grumpy state after an hour because of how loudly they play country pop in there, as well as commercials for their Players’ Card, which sounds just like a bad radio station ad, and creates a terrible atmosphere. For lunch we ate at Charlie’s Bar & Grill, and checked out Wynn’s completely redesigned sports book. The hot dog was great. I decided to get my first ever massage at Encore spa. It was beyond amazing, so profesional, so skilled. I used the hot tubs and reading room too. My wife took the opportunity to nap. I was doing well on bankroll so I played some $25 at 3:2 blackjack (instead of $15 at 6:5). Then we went to the buffet. We ate too much! But it was amazing. I made sure to get plenty of crab legs this time, while my wife was given a personal tour from the chef to show her what was safe to eat. He even offered to personally cook any item separately to make certain there was no cross-contamination with shellfish. Wynn Buffet We both felt uncomfortably stuffed after that. Gambling in the Players Lounge rounded out a great day. Tues: woke up to a delicious mango from room service. The day before they said no mangoes were ripe. If they don’t have a perfect mango, they don’t serve it :-) We walked to to Venetian/Palazzo. We ate lunch at Grimaldi’s which served a wonderful thin crust pizza in a NY themed setting. Pizza at Grimaldi We toured the mall, got some Honolulu cookies, and gambled in the Venetian. It was a little hectic in there for my taste. However, you can play in the high limit room for only a $50 bacc bet, which I thought was a great value. Next we did the Star Wars virtual reality attraction, which we loved. After that we went to Palazzo. I liked that Palazzo was less crowded, with fewer tourists running through. I played some $25 Pai Gow Poker in the green chip pit next to the high limit room while wifey played slots--she was very excited to find a Casablanca machine. We canceled our dinner reservations at Lakeside and decided to get room service. I ate a delicious Reuben sandwich with chicken noodle soup and she ate a cheese melt with tomato soup. We finished the night in Encore’s Player Lounge as usual. Weds: we started with room service of scrambled eggs and english muffins. While my wife packed I talked to the casino host who gave us some great comps off our room bill. I played some bacc in the high limit room, winning $300 as a fantastic sendoff. My wife, on her way out, placed a single $100 blackjack (3:2) bet and got dealt a ten and an ace, blackjack! It was a great moment. The black Escalade took us to McCarran and we were on our way! Lessons learned: sleep in or you won’t feel right the rest of the day. Don’t try to eat too many high-end meals, they’re just too rich and leave us feeling overstuffed. Don’t go to the nightclubs if you’re expecting the same kind of personalized friendly service you get elsewhere on property. They’re pretty gruff, probably from dealing with drugged out 20-somethings. And the biggest lesson of all: spend a little extra to get exactly the trip you want. Encore charges a premium but to us it’s more than worth it. Thanks for Reading :-)

By Thomas Mann Translation by H. T. Lowe-Porter THE FIGHT BETWEEN JAPPE AND DO ESCOBAR I WAS very much taken aback when Johnny Bishop told me that Jappe and Do Escobar were going to fight each other and that we must go and watch them do it. It was in the summer holidays at Travemünde, on a sultry day was a slight land breeze and a flat sea ever so far away across the sands. We had been some three-quarters of an hour in the water and were lying on the hard sand under the props of the bathing- cabins——we two and Jürgen Brattström the shipowner's son. Johnny and Brattström were lying on their backs entirely naked; I felt more comfortable with my towel wrapped round my hips. Brattström asked me why I did it and I could not think of any sensible answer; so Johnny said with his winning smile that I was probably too big now to lie naked. I really was larger and more developed than Johnny and Brattström; also a little older, about thirteen; so I accepted Johnny's explanation in silence, although with a certain feeling of mortification. For in Johnny Bishop's presence you actually felt rather out of it if you were any less small, fine, and physically childlike than he, who was all these things in such a very high degree. He knew how to look up at you with his pretty, friendly blue eyes, which had a certain mock- ing smile in them too, with an expression that said: "What a great, gawky thing you are, to be sure!" The ideal of manliness and long trousers had no validity in his presence——and that at a time, not long after the war, when strength, courage, and every hardy virtue stood very high among us youth and all sorts of conduct were banned as effeminate. But Johnny, as a foreigner—or half- foreigner——was exempt from this atmosphere. He was a little like a woman who preserves her youth and looks down on other women who are less successful at the feat. Besides he was far and away the best-dressed boy in town, distinctly aristocratic and elegant in his real English sailor suit with the linen collar, sailor's knot, laces, a silver whistle in his pocket, and an anchor on the sleeve that narrowed round his wrists. Anyone else would have been laughed at for that sort of thing——it would have been jeered at as "girls' clothes." But he wore them with such a disarming and confident air that he never suffered in the least. He looked rather like a thin little cupid as he lay there, with his pretty, soft blond curls and his arms up over the narrow English head that rested on the sand. His father had been a German busi- ness man who had been naturalized in England and died some years since. His mother was English by blood, a long-featured lady with quiet, gentle ways, who had settled in our town with her two children, Johnny and a mischievous little girl just as pretty as he. She still wore black for her husband, and she was probably honouring his last wishes when she brought the children to grow up in Germany. Obviously they were in easy circum- stances. She owned a spacious house outside the city and a villa at the sea and from time to time she travelled with Johnny and Sissie to more distant resorts. She did not move in society, although it would have been open to her. Whether on account of her mourn- ing or perhaps because the horizon of our best families was too narrow for her, she herself led a retired life, but she managed that her children should have social intercourse. She incited other children to play with them and sent them to dancing and to deport- ment lessons, thus quietly arranging that Johnny and Sissie should associate exclusively with the children of well-to-do families—— of course not in pursuance of any well-defined principle, but just as a matter of course. Mrs. Bishop contributed, remotely, to my own education: it was from her I learned that to be well thought of by others no more is needed than to think well of yourself. Though deprived of its male head the little family showed none of the marks of neglect or disruption which often in such cases make people fight shy. Without further family connection, with- out title, tradition, influence, or public office, and living a life apart, Mrs. Bishop by no means lacked social security or preten- sions. She was definitely accepted at her own valuation and the friendship of her children was much sought after by their young contemporaries. As for Jürgen Brattström, I may say in passing that his father had made his own money, achieved public office, and built for himself and his family the red sandstone house on the Burgfeld, next to Mrs. Bishop's. And that lady had quietly accepted his son as Johnny's playmate and let the two go to school together. Jürgen was a decent, phlegmatic, short-legged lad without any prominent characteristics. He had begun to do a little private business in licorice sticks. As I said, I was extremely shocked when Johnny told me about the impending meeting between Jappe and Do Escobar which was to take place at twelve o'clock that day on the Leuch- tenfeld. It was dead earnest——might have a serious outcome, for Jappe and Do Escobar were both stout and reckless fellows and had strong feelings about knightly honour. The issue might well be frightful. In my memory they still seem as tall and manly as they did then, though they could not have been more than fifteen at the time. Jappe came from the middle class of the city; he was not much looked after at home, he was already almost his own master, a combination of loafer and man-about-town. Do Escobar was an exotic and bohemian foreigner, who did not even come regularly to school but only attended lectures now and then——an irregular but paradisial existence! He lived en pension with some middle-class people and rejoiced in complete independence. Both were people who went late to bed, visited public-houses, strolled of evenings in the Broad Street, followed girls about, performed crazy "stunts"——in short, were regular blades. Although they did not live in the Kurhotel at Travemünde——where they would scarcely have been acceptable——but somewhere in the village, they frequented the Kurhaus and garden and were at home there as cosmopolitans. In the evening, especially on a Sunday, when I has long since been in my bed in one of the chalets and gone off to sleep to the pleasant sound of the Kurhaus band, they, and other members of the young generation——as I was aware——still sauntered up and down in the stream of tourists and guests, loitered in front of the long awning of the café, and sought and found grown-up entertainment. And here they had come to blows, good- ness knows how and why. It is possible that they had only brushed against each other in passing and in the sensitiveness of their knightly honour had made a fighting matter of the en- counter. Johnny, who of course had been long since in bed too and was instructed only by hearsay in what happened, expressed himself in his pleasant, slightly husky childish voice, that the quarrel was probably about some "gal"——an easy assumption, considering Jappe's and Do Escobar's precocity and boldness. In short, they had made no scene among the guests, but in few and biting words agreed upon hour and place and witnesses for the satisfaction of their honour. The next day, at twelve, rendezvous at such and such a spot on the Leuchtenfeld. Good evening.—— Ballet-master Knaak from Hamburg, master of ceremonies and leader of the Kurhaus cotillions, had been on the scene and prom- ised his presence at the appointed hour and place. Johnny rejoiced wholeheartedly in the fray——I think that neither he nor Brattström would have shared my apprehensions. Johnny repeatedly assured me, forming the r far forward on his palate, with his pretty enunciation, that they were both "in dead eahnest" and certainly meant business. Complacently and with a rather ironic objectivity he weighed the chances of victory for each. They were both frightfully strong, he grinned; both of them great fighters——it would be fun to have it settled which of them was the greater. Jappe, Johnny thought, had a broad chest and capital arm and leg muscles, he could tell that from seeing him swimming. But Do Escobar was uncommonly wiry and savage—— hard to tell beforehand who would get the upper hand. It was strange to hear Johnny discourse so sovereignly upon Jappe's and Do Escobar's qualifications, looking at his childish arms, which could never have given or warded off a blow. As for me, I was indeed far from absenting myself from the spectacle. That would have been absurd and moreover the proceedings had a great fasci- nation for me. Of course I must go, I must see it all, now that I knew about it. I felt a certain sense of duty, along with other and conflicting emotions: a great shyness and shame, all unwarlike as I was, and not at all minded to trust myself upon the scene of manly exploits. I had a nervous dread of the shock which the sight of a duel à outrance, a fight for life and death, as it were, would give me. I was cowardly enough to ask myself whether, once on the field, I might not be caught up in the struggle and have to expose my own person to a proof of valour which I knew in my inmost heart I was far from being able or willing to give. On the other hand I kept putting myself in Jappe's and Do Esco- bar's place and feeling consuming sensations which I assumed to be what they were feeling. I visualized the scene of the insult and the challenge, summoned my sense of good form and with Jappe and Do Escobar resisted the impulse to fall to there and then. I experienced the agony of an overwrought passion for justice, the flaring, shattering hatred, the attacks of raving impatience for revenge, in which they must have passed the night. Arrived at the last ditch, lost to all sense of fear, I fought myself blind and bloody with an adversary just as inhuman, drove my fist into his hated jaw with all the strength of my being, so that all his teeth were broken, received in exchange a brutal kick in the stomach and went under in a sea of blood. After which I woke in my bed with ice-bags, quieted nerves, and a chorus of mild reproaches from my family. In short, when it was half past twelve and we got up to dress I was half worn out with my apprehensions. In the cabin and afterwards when we were dressed and went outdoors, my heart throbbed exactly as though it was I myself who was to fight with Jappe or Do Escobar, in public and with all the rigours of the game. I still remember how we took the narrow wooden bridge which ran diagonally up from the beach to the cabins. Of course we jumped, in order to make it sway as much as possible, so that we bounced as though on a spring-board. But once below we did not follow the board walk which led along the beach past the tents and the basket chairs; but held inland in the general direction of the Kurhaus but rather more leftwards. The sun brooded over the dunes and sucked a dry, hot odour from the sparse and withered vegetation, the reeds and thistles that stuck into our leg. There was no sound but the ceaseless humming of the blue-bottle flies which hung apparently motionless in the heavy warmth, sud- denly to shift to another spot and begin afresh their sharp, mo- notonous whine. The cooling effect of the bath was long since spent. Brattström and I kept lifting our hats, he his Swedish sailor cap with the oilcloth visor, I my round Heligoland woollen bon- net——the so-called tam-o'-shanter——to wipe our brows. Johnny suffered little from heat, thanks to his slightness and also because his clothing was more elegantly adapted than ours to the summer day. In his light and comfortable sailor suit of striped washing material which left bare his throat and legs, the blue, short- ribboned cap with English lettering on his pretty little head, the long slender feet in fine, almost heelless white leather shoes, he walked with mounting strides and somewhat bent knees between Brattström and me and sang with his charming accent "Little Fisher Maiden"——a ditty which was then the rage. He sang it with some vulgar variation in the words, such as boys like to in- vent. Curiously enough, in all his childishness he knew a good deal about various matters and was not at all too prudish to take them in his mouth. But always he would make a sanctimonious little face and say: "Fie! Who would sing such dirty songs?"—— as though Brattström and I had been the ones to make indecent advances to the little fisher maiden. I did not feel at all like singing, we were too near the fatal spot. The prickly grass of the dunes had changed to the sand and sea moss of a barren meadow; this was the Leuchtenfeld, so called after the yellow lighthouse towering up in the far distance. We soon found ourselves at our goal. It was a warm, peaceful spot, where almost nobody ever came: protected from view by scrubby willow trees. On the free space among the bushes a crowd of youths lay or sat in a circle. They were almost all older than we and from various strata of society. We seemed to be the last spectators to arrive. Everybody was waiting for Knaak the dancing-master, who was needed in the capacity of neutral and umpire. Both Jappe and Do Escobar were there——I saw them at once. They were sitting far apart in the circle and pretending not to see each other. We greeted a few acquaintances with silent nods and squatted in our turn on the sun- warmed ground. Some of the group were smoking. Both Jappe and Do Escobar held cigarettes in the corners of their mouths. Each kept one eye shut against the smoke and I instantly felt and knew that they were aware how grand it was to sit there and smoke before entering the ring. They were both dressed in grown-up clothes, but Do Escobar's were more gentlemanly that Jappe's. He wore yellowed shoes with pointed toes, a light-grey summer suit, a rose- coloured shirt with cuffs, a coloured silk cravat, and a round, nar- row-brimmed straw hat sitting far back on his head, so that his mop of shining black hair showed on one side beneath it, in a big hummock. He kept raising his right hand to shake back the silver bangle he wore under his cuff. Jappe's appearance was distinctly less pretentious. His legs were encased in tight trousers of a lighter colour than his coat and waistcoat and fastened with straps under his waxed black boots. A checked cap covered his curly blond hair; in contrast to Do Escobar's jaunty headgear he wore it pulled down over his forehead. He sat with his arms clasped round one knee; you could see that he had on loose cuffs over his shirt-sleeves, also that his finger-nails were either cut too short or else that he indulged in the vice of biting them. Despite the smoking and the assumed nonchalance, the whole circle was serious and silent, restraint was in the air. The only one to make head against it was Do Escobar, who talked without stopping to his neighbours, in a loud, strained voice, rolling his r's and blow- ing smoke out of his nose. I was rather put off by his volubility; it inclined me, despite the bitten finger-nails, to side with Jappe, who at most addressed a word or two over his shoulder to his neighbour and for the rest gazed in apparent composure at the smoke of his cigarette. Then came Herr Knaak——I can still see him, in his blue striped flannel morning suit, coming with winged tread from the direc- tion of the Kurhaus and lifting his hat as he paused outside the circle. That he wanted to come I do not believe; I am convinced rather that he had made a virtue of necessity when he honoured the fight with his presence. And the necessity, the compulsion, was due to his equivocal position in the eyes of the martially- and mascu- linely-minded youth. Dark-skinned and comely, plump, particu- larly in the region of the hips, he gave us dancing and deportment lessons in the wintertime——private, family lessons as well as pub- lic classes in the Casino; and in the summer he acted as bathing- master and social manager at Travemünde. He rocked on his hips and weaved in his walk, turning out his toes very much and setting them first on the ground as he stepped. His eye had a vain ex- pression, his speech was pleasant but affected, and his way of entering a room as though it were a stage, his extraordinary and fastidious mannerisms charmed all the female sex, while the mascu- line world, and especially critical youth, viewed him with sus- picion. I have often pondered over the position of François Knaak in life and always have I found it strange and fantastic. He was of humble origins, his parents were poor, and his taste for the social graces left him as it were hanging in the air——not a member of society, yet paid by it as a guardian and instructor of its con- ventions. Jappe and Do Escobar were his pupils too; not in pri- vate lessons, like Johnny, Brattström, and me, but in the public classes in the Casino. It was in these that Herr Knaak's character and position were most sharply criticized. We of the private classes were less austere. A fellow who taught you the proper de- portment towards little girls, who was thrillingly reported to wear a corset, who picked up the edge of his frock-coat with his finger- tips, curtsied, cut capers, leaped suddenly into the air, where he twirled his toes before he came down again——what sort of chap was he, after all? These were the suspicions harboured by militant youth on the score of Herr Knaak's character and mode of life, and his exaggerated airs did nothing to allay them. Of course, he was a grown-up man (he was even, comically enough, said to have a wife and children in Hamburg); and his advantage in years and the fact that he was never seen except officially and in the dance-hall, prevented him from being convicted and unmasked. Could he do gymnastics? Had he ever been able to? Had he courage? Had he parts? In short, could one accept him as an equal? He was never in a position to display the soldier char- acteristics which might have balanced his salon arts and made him a decent chap. So there were youths who made no bones of call- ing him straight out a coward and a jackanapes. All this he knew and therefore he was here today to manifest his interest in a good stand-up fight and to put himself on terms with the young, though in his official position he should not have countenanced such goings-on. I am convinced, however, that he was not comfortable ——he knew he was treading on thin ice. Some of the audience looked coldly at him and he himself gazed uneasily round to see if anybody was coming. He politely excused his late arrival, saying that he had been kept by a consultation with the management of the Kurhaus about the next Sunday's ball. "Are the combatants present?" he next inquired in official tones. "Then we can begin." Leaning on his stick with his feet crossed he gnawed his soft brown mous- tache with his under lip and made owl eyes to look like a con- noisseur. Jappe and Do Escobar stood up, threw away their cigarettes, and began to prepare for the fray. Do Escobar did it in a hurry, with impressive speed. He threw hat, coat, and waistcoat on the ground, unfastened tie, collar, and braces and added them to the pile. He even drew his rose-coloured shirt out of his trousers, pulled his arms briskly out of the sleeves, and stood up in a red and white striped undershirt which exposed the larger part of his yellow arms, already covered with a thick black fell. "At you service, sir," he said, with a rolling r, stepping into the middle of the ring, expanding his chest and throwing back his shoulders. He still wore the silver bangle. Jappe was not ready yet. He turned his head, elevated his brows, and looked at Do Escobar's feet a moment with narrowed eyes——as much as to say: "Wait a bit——I'll get there too, even if I don't swagger so much." He was broader in the shoulder; but as he took his place beside Do Escobar he seemed nowhere near so fit or athletic. His legs in the tight strapped boots inclined to be knock-kneed and his fit-out was not impressive——grey braces over a yellowed white shirt with loose buttoned sleeves. By con- trast Do Escbar's striped tricot and the black hair on his arms looked uncommonly grim and businesslike. Both were pale but it showed more in Jappe as he was otherwise blond and red-cheeked, with jolly, not-too-refined features including a rather turned-up nose with a saddle of freckles. Do Escobar's nose was short, straight, and drooping and there was a downy black growth on his full upper lip. They stood with hanging arms almost breast to breast, and looked at one another darkly and haughtily in the region of the stomach. They obviously did not know how to begin——and how well I could understand that! A night and half a day had inter- vened since the unpleasantness. They had wanted to fly at each other's throats and had only been held in check by the rules of the game. But they had had time to cool off. To do to order, as it were, before an audience, by appointment, in cold blood, what they had wanted to do yesterday when the fit was on them——it was not the same thing at all. After all, they were not gladiators. They were civilized young men. And in possession of one's senses one has a certain reluctance to smash a sound human body with one's fists. So I thought, and so, very likely, it was. But something had to be done, that honour might be satisfied, so each began to work the other up by hitting him contemptu- ously with the finger-tips on the breast, as though that would be enough to finish him off. And, indeed, Jappe's face began to be distorted with anger—but just at that moment Do Escobar broke off the skirmish. "Pardon," said he, taking two steps backwards and turning aside. He had to tighten the buckle at the back of his trousers, for he was narrow-hipped and in the absence of braces they had begun to slip. He took his position again almost at once, throwing out his chest and saying something in guttural and rattling Spanish, probably to the effect that he was again at Jappe's service. It was clear that he was inordinately vain. The skirmishing with shoulders and buffeting with palms began again. Then unexpectedly there ensued a blind and raging hand- to-hand scuffle with the fists, which lasted three seconds and broke off without notice. "Now they are warming up," said Johnny, sitting next to me with a dry grass in his mouth. "I'll wager Jappe beats him. Look how he keeps squinting over at us——Jappe keeps his mind on his job. Will you bet he won't give him a good hiding?" They had now recoiled and stood, fists on hips, their chests heaving. Both had doubtless taken some punishment, for they both looked angry, sticking out their lips furiously as much as to say: "What do you mean by hurting me like that?" Jappe was red- eyed and Do Escobar showed his white teeth as they fell to again. They were hitting out now with all their strength on shoulders, forearms, and breasts by turns and in quick succession. "That's nothing," Johnny said, with his charming accent. "They won't get anywhere that way, either of them. They must go at it under the chin, with an uppercut to the jaw. That does it." But mean- while Do Escobar had caught both Jappe's arms with his left arm, pressed them as in a vise against his chest, and with his right went on pummelling Jappe's flanks. There was great excitement. "No clinching!" several voices cried out, and people jumped up. Herr Knaak hastened between the combatants, in horror. "You are holding him fast, my dear friend. That is against all the rules." He separated them and again instructed Do Escobar in the regulations. Then he withdrew once more outside the ring. Jappe was obviously in a fury. He was quite white, rubbing his side and looking at Do Escobar with a slow nod that boded no good. When the next round began, his face looked so grim that everybody expected him to deliver a decisive blow. And actually as soon as contact had been renewed Jappe carried out a coup——he practised a feint which he had probably planned beforehand. A thrust with his left caused Do Escobar to protect his head; but as he did so Jappe's right hit him so hard in the stomach that he crumpled forwards and his face took on the colour of yellow wax. "That went home," said Johnny. "That's where it hurts. Maybe now he will pull himself together and take things seri- ously, so as to pay it back." But the blow to the stomach had been too telling, Do Escobar's nerve was visibly shaken. It was clear he could not even clench his fists properly, and his eyes took on a glazed look. However, finding his muscles thus affected, his vanity counselled him to play the agile southron, dancing round the German bear and rendering him desperate by his own dex- terity. He took tiny steps and made all sorts of useless passes, moving round Jappe in little circles and trying to assume an arro- gant smile——which in his reduced condition struck me as really heroic. But it did not upset Jappe at all——he simply turned round on his heel and got in many a good blow with his right while with his left he warded off Do Escobar's feeble attack. But what sealed Do Escobar's fate was that his trousers kept slipping. His tricot shirt even came outside and rucked up, showing a little strip of his bare yellow skin——some of the audience sniggered. But why had he taken off his braces? He would have done better to leave æsthetic considerations on one side. For now his trousers bothered him, they had bothered him during the whole fight. He kept wanting to pull them up and stuff in his shirt, for however much he was punished he could bear it better than the thought that he might be cutting a ridiculous figure. In the end he was fighting with one hand while with the other he tried to put him- self to rights; and thus Jappe was able to land such a blow on his nose that to this day I do not understand why it was not broken. But the blood poured out, and Do Escobar turned and went apart from Jappe, trying with his right hand to stop the bleeding and with his left making an eloquent gesture behind him as he went. Jappe stood there with his knock-kneed legs spread out and waited for Do Escobar to come back. But Do Escobar was finished with the business. If I interpret him aright he was the more civilized of the two and felt that it was high time to call a halt: Jappe would beyond doubt have fought on with his nose bleed- ing; but almost as certainly Do Escobar would equally have re- fused to go on, and he did so with even more conviction in that it was himself that bled. They had made the claret run out of his nose——in his view things should never have been allowed to go so far, devil take it! The blood ran between his fingers onto his clothes, it soiled his light trousers and dripped on his yellow shoes. It was beastly and nothing but beastly——and under such circum- stances he declined to take part in more fighting. It would be inhuman. And his attitude was accepted by the majority of the spec- tators. Herr Knaak came into the ring and declared that the fight was over. Both sides had behaved with distinction. You could see how relieved he felt that the affair had gone off so smoothly. "But neither of them was brought to a fall," said Johnny, surprised and disappointed. However, even Jappe was quite satis- fied to consider the affair as settled. Drawing a long breath he went to fetch his clothes. Everybody generally accepted Herr Knaak's delicate fiction that the issue was a draw. Jappe was con- gratulated, but only surreptitiously; on the other hand some peo- ple lent Do Escobar their handkerchiefs, as his own was soon drenched. And now the cry was for more. Let two other fellows fight. That was the sense of the meeting; Jappe's and Do Escobar's business had taken so little time, hardly ten minutes; since they were all there and it was still quite early something more ought to come. Another pair must enter the arena——whoever wanted to show that he deserved being called a lad of parts. Nobody offered. But why at this summons did my heart begin to beat like a little drum? What I had feared had come to pass: the challenge had become general. Why did I feel as though I had all the time been awaiting this very moment with shivers of delicious anticipation and now when it had come why was I plunged into a whirl of conflicting emotions? I looked at Johnny. Perfectly calm and detached he sat beside me, turned his straw about in his mouth and looked about the ring with a frankly curious air, to see whether a couple of stout chaps would not be found to let their noses be broken for his amusement. Why was it that I had to feel personally challenged to conquer my nervous timidity, to make an unnatural effort and draw all eyes upon my- self by heroically stepping into the ring? In an access of self- consciousness mingled with vanity I was about to raise my hand and offer myself for combat when somewhere in the circle the shout arose: "Herr Knaak ought to fight!" All eyes fastened themselves upon Herr Knaak. I have said that he was walking upon slippery ice in exposing himself to the dan- ger of such a test of his kidney. But he simply answered: "No, thanks, very much——I had enough beatings when I was young." He was safe. He had slipped like an eel out of the trap. How astute of him, to bring in his superiority in years, to imply that at our age he would not have avoided an honourable fight——and that without boasting at all, even making his own words carry irre- sistible conviction by admitting with a disarming laugh at himself that he too had taken beatings in his time. They let him alone. They perceived that it was hard, if not impossible, to bring him to book. "Then somebody must wrestle!" was the next cry. This sug- gestion was not taken up either; but in the midst of the discussion over it (and I shall never forget the painful impression it made) Do Escobar said in his hoarse Spanish voice from behind his gory handkerchief: "Wrestling is for cowards. Only Germans wrestle." It was an unheard of piece of tactlessness, coming from him, and got its reward at once in the capital retort made by Herr Knaak: "Possible," said he. "But it looks as though the Germans know how to give pretty good beatings sometimes too!" He was rewarded by shouts of approving laughter; his whole position was improved, and Do Escobar definitely put down for the day. But it was the general opinion that wrestling was a good deal of a bore, and so various athletic feats were resorted to instead: leap-frog, standing on one's head, handsprings and so on, to fill in the time. "Come on, let's go," said Johnny to Brattström and me, and got up. That was Johnny Bishop for you. He had come to see something real, with the possibility of a bloody issue. But the thing had petered out and so he left. He gave me my first impression of the peculiar superiority of the English character, which later on I came so greatly to admire. 1911
