    My Trip Report

    Ok, I know I'm early. However, my mind is racing. I'm going to do my best at posting each night while I'm there.

    Trip Background:
    Turned 50 yesterday (Yeah!!)

    My last trip (in March) actually paid for this trip (including gambling) 3 Royals on the same machine

    Prep for trip:
    So far the pre-trip is going normal. Caught a sinus infection, got meds and hopefully it will be gone by departure time

    Have some coupons for shows. However, not booking anything until I know by BF can actually walk that day. (Very bad back)

    Money:
    All set from last trip

    Clothes:
    Just need to review and make sure I have comfortable shoes.

    Mind:
    Trying to keep it together, but as the day's approach I think I would lose my head if it wasn't attached.

    Prep all done. Now let the games begin!!!

    OK, not a good sign. My girlfriend and Vegas partner is sick in the hospital. Since I cannot reschedule for anytime soon, I'm going solo

    I'm hoping that your GF is recovering and will be out of the hospital soon so you can enjoy your trip!

    OK, everything packed. Checked on girlfriend and she's doing good. Told her we will plan another one next March. She was happy I was going which made me feel better!! Unfortunately, I actually have to deal with security this time. Girlfriend has had several back surgery's and she uses a wheelchair so I'm used to flying through. 6hrs before I hit the shower!!

    I also celebrated turning 50 by going to the Palms.

    Happy Belated Birthday and I hope your birthday trip will be as epic as mine was.

    OK, so far the luck has been good. Received TSA pre check no waiting. Scored a preboard due to surgery a couple of weeks ago. Great southwest agent who was really nice even though she was busy

    Things going pretty good so far. Room was ready when I arrived (pretty nice surprise). Within an hour I was down $300. Switched to triple and five play. Hit 4's, 3's and A's without kicker. I did take pictures but found out I was out of memory for photos. So I only have one.

    Sorry about the writing but I don't do well with small keyboards don't work with fat fingers.

    Going down now, more later.
