Hi Been reading this forum for years with no significant contribution whatsoever, hence the newbie tag. But I will change that with an attempt at a live report. I leave for Vegas for 7 days in the morning celebrating my 30th year going to my favorite city. I have been going every year since 1986, some multiple times a year, I am somewhere near 45 times I guess. I will break that string next year as I am in my early 50s and need to start crossing some other travel off my list. My son is going to be stationed in Alaska soon and the wife wants to go there and we are going to travel across Europe for a few weeks the following year, so need to save up to do it in style. So I figured I would report in my final trip for a while. (Jan 26th-Feb 2nd) I am going with my 22 yr old daughter and her 2 friends and 1 set of friends parents for the first 4 days, then I have a buddy coming in on Wednesday to hang with for the rest of the trip. I will be staying at Golden Gate, Plaza, Cosmo and MGM all comped (got to get something for 30 years of play) I am loyal to no one property so I only get 2 or 3 days comped at any one place. I am not a high roller by any means just consistent enough to be invited back. Kids are staying at the Downtown Grand and the other parents at MSS. Probably highlights of the trip will be the High Roller bar car, Secret Garden at Mirage, (MyVegas) Zip Line on Fremont, Verbena at the Cosmo and ATV riding in Valley of Fire. Not real highlights to some of you but its whats slated on the things to do list. The only one in stone is the ATV because its paid for. I usually do 1 big out of city thing when I go. In the past has included The Dam, Swimming and boating in Lake Meade, Dune buggies in the dessert, helicopter to the Grand Canyon, shooting machine guns and so on. We will also drink and gamble a lot which is the main highlight I like to do. Well I have to get up for a flight in 5 hours so I hope to catch you on the flip side. Guess i will practice posting a picture, so here is my initial withdraw from the bank.
