    My Trip Report

    [​IMG]
    Another live trip report however this time I'm flying NOT 45 minutes but 6 hours there and 8 hours back. (Door to door will be about 15 hours) It's going to be the Bahamas! Atlantis on Paradise Island to be exact.
    Im flying into Nassau Sunday after the Super bowl. I will be in the air about 15 minutes when I will be live on facetime with pphold, pleepleus, firstkill, broncofn and a few others watching every spin of he CLEO machine that I went in on with them. I will be in first class as I can only fit in those seats. LOL.. I will be screaming if we win big bucks or win at all. I will be going to sleep if we lose it all.
    I'm sponsoring the LPGA golf tournament and playing in the Pro Am. That will be a blast. Also playing golf at a very exclusive private country club there called Lyford Cay. Sean Connery is a member there and I hear he plays everyday. Maybe we will be his third and fourth. Really looking forward to that! This will be my second time at Atlantis (First was Aug 2013) so pretty much know my way around. I was going to go to Bahamar for my next visit to the Bahamas but this golf tournament came up and Bahamar isn't open until late march. My buddy and I have hired-rented a boat-ship for a one day excursion to another island to golf for the day. That too way be exciting. There will be lots of partying with the girls(Pro golfers), sponsors and other VIPs from the golf tourn. Every night there will be an event of some sort. Every night there will be a nice dinner. One night a concert and so on... I have a 2 bedroom suite up high with a ocean view in the Royal towers. All nights comped. Could have stayed in the cove but we would rather be closer to the action. We will be in the tower over the spa as we go there everyday in the late afternoon. The shower pressure sucks in the rooms so we use the spa to work out and get ready for the night. I did get free play to make up for the BS fees which adds up to 100s and 100s. (Thanks pphold) I will have a key for the cove so I can use that beach and pool. Gambling will be Craps, Baccarat and a little bit of PayTriple's roulette system. In that order. Do they have a cleo slut machine there? If so I might try it. Bank roll will be $$k cash and 25k front money which I already sent them. There are 3 of us traveling so no problem with the cash. I will be taking LOTS of pictures and sharing them with you all. Will stop on our way to the hotel to buy chips, water and assorted other munchies as I hate being gouged for that stuff. Last time some food was comped but not counting on it. Cant wait to jump in the water at the Cove! I think I forgot some other activities so I will edit this post as I remember. Any suggestions on restaurants? Suggestions on sightseeing? Any suggestions on anything related to the island or surrounding islands would be appreciated. Are there any must do's?

    Good luck Packer. Win some money and buy that Rolex Sky Dweller so I can swap that out for a Folex.

    Well, I am almost there. (Miami) No sleep and I have gas! What's a guy to do? I guess one more bloody Mary should do it! My phone says 456am. I'm so bummed about the big game but more upset about the Cleopatra slut machine that I went in on. Thanks pleepleus for giving it a try. I think the guy who hit the 106k owes us!! Some commission at the very least. Thanks pphold for putting the Seattle bet in for me. I blame that piece of s#!+ Pete Carroll for the loss. (Im a Bruin).. shoot I hope those two losses aren't an omen for Atlantis. Oh no.
    Just kidding I don't believe in that anyway.
    Another update soon I feel the plane descending now. [​IMG]

    Next leg. So far really easy. This little plane fro Miami to the Bahamas is way more comfortable than the 737_800! I suggest the first row. Lots of room for big guys. 6'5" and I fit.
    Bahamas here we come..
