That's right folks.... After a two year hiatus I'm back, airline ticket in hand (well, it's more of an e-mailed thing that isn't even really necessary to board the plane, but "ticket in hand" just sounds so much better). I saw over in the TR section stickies that I can't post a Pre-TR there... I suppose I may personally have had something to do with that. So here I am. I apologize to anyone trying to follow my exploits for the two-year-old abandoned thread on my last trip... I promise this time around not to let you down. I'm headed off to LV for May 9-13, headed back a day early to make sure I'm home for my son's HS graduation (to put it into perspective, I started writing these TRs when he was in middle school... maybe elementary). It will be a challenging trip in many regards. Money is a bit of an issue, as I went ahead and bought my plane ticket without corporate go-ahead... If I don't get it, everything will be on me. Which a couple of years ago would be ok, but the bankroll has nose-dived and seen a bit of recovery since then. I'll be doing some crazy stuff in the next 30 days to get it as healthy as possible. All that is immaterial, however... I have a ticket to Las Vegas, a pocketful of cash, and plans to conduct the craziest LV trip EVER in hand. I'll be posting here until the day of departure when I can do so over in TR... Until then, ladies and gentlemen... Hang on tight! This is going to be the RCP of Las Vegas trips... Here we go!
