    My Trip Report

    Well actually I started the last two days of October.
    I was not too impressed with Halloween in Vegas. Maybe i was just in the wrong places.

    To narrate 17 days with all the rambling I do would produce a ridiculous trip report. Mine is posted on my blog in bits so skimming is more possible. I am not the best photographer and my camera malfunctioned as well, but I did capture some bits of the trip.

    You can see it here:

    I am so long in posting because I've been sick in bed since I came home.
    That all seems to have passed, I hope. I expect the quality of the report suffered as I did; however, I was pleased just to finally get it in some readable form.

    Boomer,

    I know you gave me your email, but I lost that along with your wife's name. My apologies. Check in the upper right hand corner of this screen below your name and you will see where it says "Private Messages" There we can share some of the more personal data.

    Dewey,

    I truly enjoy your trip reports your descriptions make me feel as though I'm right there. I'm sorry to hear about you getting sicktowrads the end of your trip. Seventeen days is a marathon. I'd have to really be consious of my bankroll and not do alot of chasing.

    Right. Bankroll is the problem. I can't play no limit or gamble all the time. However, the limit games are very cheap and take a long, long time if I play tight. And looking for cheap and free fun protects me from overspending.

    I was very pleased with the outcome. However, I am not so sick that I don't even want to be on computer as I was the first week to ten days.

    However, I am still sick. I can't shake it. My wife has something too. Hers came this week with fever. We just have been sick now since I came home.

    Hi Dewey,

    First, let me offer my sincerest apologies for missing the meet at Ellis Island. Beth and I planned on attending, but we played our LVA Sahara 50/40 coupon beforehand and found a good roulette table. We ended up sitting there over 2 hours and making up quite a bit of our previous VP losses. We thought that, with the trip down to Ellis, we might catch the group in the middle of steaks in the restaurant, so we figured we'd just catch everyone next time. We are sorry to have missed out on meeting everyone, however.

    Nice read on the trip report, for sure. You have a nice writing style, and I wish I could write like that!

    Dave

    Well, Dave, as I think I told you, Vegas is a hard place for being on a time clock. Sorry to miss meeting you. We should meet for a beer here in the area sometime.
    You missed a good one. Very interesting folks and some helpful conversation. I was pretty impressed and pleased.
