Vegas – the name itself just makes you smile. You can’t help but get excited every time you hear the word. Whether you’re vicariously living out the trip on VMB or planning your own trip – the place is just magical. Ok – maybe not magical. Most of my trip require therapy when I return. But you get the point – the energy is amazing and you just don’t want to sleep.. fearing you may miss something. You want to take it all in and the sensory overload combined with binge drinking and copious amounts of gambling leaves you exhausted but poised for the next trip. I will be partaking in my 20th trip this Thursday. For the first time – I will be spending the first two days alone with friends coming in late Friday night to hopefully be the voice of reason. Every boat needs a rudder and ours appears to be pretty limp. 5 days – 4 nights – little sleep. I’m a little nervous about the first two days. Without another friend there to distract me – I could see myself spiraling deep into a gambler’s abyss with zero bankroll left and a small incision in my left abdomen from where they extracted my liver. But without adversity there is no chance for greatness. It’s almost time to make history – or fail epically – but regardless.. I will be in Vegas and enjoy every waking moment. So my first question to the board - since this is my first Trip Report - live ramblings from a drunken moron via tapatalk or compile notes and post a "real" report on my return. and thanks to all of you for letting me sneak a peek at your trips and relive some memories of my own in preparation for this trip!
