The advantage of bringing a computer to Vegas is that even without WiFi all the details of the trip can be recorded. The disadvantage is that it makes for much to much to read. Overall, I had a fine time at Tuscany, Plaza, and the Edgewater in Laughlin, but I lost more often than I won, playing live poker and VP. For a frugal gambler, this was my toughest gambling score. Ended down $1877. However, with a daily average of $5 for transportation, $12 for hotel, $under 12 for food, the trip cost me on average $110 a day so I suppose it still competes with other vacations. Slowly I'll glean from all my notes threads of some interest for posting. But if you like reading every detail, I posted here on my blog: http://vegasbirthdaybash.blogspot.com/ It is not sequential, but organized under titles like GAMBLING, FOOD, BUS INFO, so skim readers might find something of interest. Just skip the first post that is about the origin of the expression "Vegas, baby" and you have my posts detailing 23 days. Sorry, no photos. One camera burned out on me in one August trip, so I don't carry the camera anymore.
