    My Trip Report

    What the hell is wrong with me? I'm completely and utterly not enthused about this upcoming trip. Is it the fact that I am solo in the beginning? Is it knowing I am leaving my pregnant wife home for 9 days? Is this guilt?!?!?

    God, I hope this feeling changes during the decent into LAS. T-minus 5 hours..

    I've had some guilt going into my last few vegas trips. It's gone away immediately when I got there. Have a good time and good luck!

    I'm watching women's gymnastics in a sports bar while waiting for my flight. I think I'm going to do that arms up bow thing every time I hit a quad. Present to the camera! (Maybe I should lay off the 1/2 price shots now)

    I actually felt bad for you when I saw that. This trip is dedicated to your herpes pandemic! ;)

    The arms-up bow thing is REALLY cool... but only if you're 4' 10", blonde and 90lbs.

    Hope you have a BLAST!!!

    How about 215 lbs and 6'? Should I stick to the sumo stomp tradition? ;)

    On the plane and stoked. Seat 2C. I think I just had a low BAC and needed to tap off the tank.

    I think I would break the balance beam and finally make those uneven parallel bars even... but I would have one hell of a salute to the judges!

    The first half of that flight was Ricky Bobby and second half Brazilian..

    Translation? Half "Shake and Bake"; half "smooth all the way to the landing strip".

    I don't blame you. That is an impressive sight. Here's hoping you'll be able to post some pics of mountainous chip stacks
