    My Trip Report

    This is a delayed Halloween trip report due to the fact that when I got back I found that 8 of my 16 co-workers had either quit or turned in their notice for better paying jobs. The upside to this is that management figured out the job market had improved and gave the remaining staff significant raises and bonuses so it worked out. Just going to be busy until we can get the new staff trained.
    I originally put together a “brief” trip report but realized that reading tax code would be more interesting then reading the 3 page trip report I put together so decided to just use the “KISS” style of writing. So here goes.
    Trip – 4 nights at the Plaza and nights at the M.
    Day 1 – Fun flight arrived on time. Checked into the Plaza and after third try was able to get a room that didn’t already have someone checked into it. No big deal, I am in Vegas and just had to laugh about it.
    The DW was coming off a 7 day stretch of 14 hour days and had been up since 2 A.M. so she went straight to bed and crashed. I wondered around for a few hours playing at different places ending up at MSS. Below are the hits for day one. They were few and far between.

    Day 2 – Wife went shopping while I wondered around DT trying to get something going but just wasn’t happening. I ended up making several “walks of shame” back to the room to get more cash. By the end of the second day we (I) was down pretty bad and was starting to sweat it. Below is from the second day.

    As you can see I was sweating it so bad I had to move down to JOB just to slow the bleed down. Ended the day down pretty bad. I even tried the RF method of parlaying and crashed and burned.



    Day 3 – Halloween – DW went shopping again and I decided just to go casino hopping. I was just going to have a beer at each casino and play until it was finished. This didn’t start so will. Then I made it to the D and decided to play the coin droppers up stairs. While at the D I hit a .25 royal on one of the progressive machines. This was my second royal ever with the first also being on a coin dropper at the ElCo a few years ago. This got me back up to a little over even and was a huge relief as I didn’t want to spend my 2 nights at the M in the room watching TV.
    DW came in early from shopping and we just pretty much bounced around and checking out all the costumed people and listening to the bands. Our night ended at Boers Head at MMS, one of my favorite places in Vegas, where DW was able to hit 4 aces with a kicker. This helped even more and we were able to go to bed up and knowing that we would make it to the M with some of our bank roll. Here are the pictures.

    Day 4 – Had breakfast at Blue Berry Hill then turned the car back in. We spent the remainder of the day just wondering around playing at different places just drinking and gambling. By the evening we were feeling no pain and spent the night listening to the band at the end of Fremont. Another one of my favorite things to do. We closed out the night listening to their last set then headed to bed as we were moving to the M the next day. Here are the only hits from day 4.

    Day 5 and 6 – Just relaxed at the M with a little gambling and drinking thrown in. Really wasn’t able to get much going on here but still enjoyed the stay. Here are the only hits I had picture of from the M. We may have had a couple more that I didn't get pictures. We just didn't hit much at the M and took a pretty bad beating.

    Day 7 – Headed home – Got up and headed to the airport. We always get to the airport with plenty of time to spare so I played a little more VP. Here are a couple from the airport.

    All in all another great trip and we are looking forward to the next. One of the highlights of the trip was getting to meet Blonde4ever. We ran into her several times and it was a real pleasure to meet her.

    I was disappointed when we got back and found out that Royal Flusher was in town. One of my dreams is to sit next to the Great Royal Flusher and play VP. This probably will be the only time that our trips coincide but a boy still needs a dream.

    Thanks for reading,
