    My Trip Report

    I arrived in Vegas July 8th and went to the WAX Bus pickup..
    As usual I got on the wrong bus, it was the 109 but it did get me downtown just not as fast.
    I stayed at the Freemont, since I'm a downtown guy.
    The room was just fine for one person and I had no problems.
    Ate the seafood buffet the 8th and since my birthday was the 9th, I had a great breakfast buffet.
    I played mostly 3 card poker and a few slots. Wheel of fortune wasn't good to me.
    I was going to ride the zip line as a 69th present but it was way too crowded so I just took pic's..
    I did ride the WAX bus to the airport on the 10th and it was faster than I expected so I had a two
    hour wait. I did win $100 on the Wheel of fortune in the smoking lounge, well really only $80
    since I had 20 in it.
    It was a great trip and I'm planing another one for the middle of Jan. then again on my birthday
    in July. And I'll make a effort to ride the zip line as a 70th present.
    I do enjoy down town and hit a 200/1 shot on the horse race game in the D .. I just enjoy that
    game.
    That's about it all went well and I got back home with money left....

    It sounds like you had a nice birthday trip. And anytime you come home with money, it's a win!

    Thanks for posting your trip report.

    Thanks for the report! And Happy Birthday! I don't mind staying at Fremont when I go solo, so the small bathroom is no issue. Another thing I like about the Fremont is the elevators open literally into the casino floor.

    I'd also like to take the WAX bus someday. But knowing my luck I also would probably get on the wrong bus and end up in Henderson or something....

    Thanks for the report. This past trip, we had a seven year old boy with our group who wanted to ride the zip line and wanted my wife to go with him. She had a great time and would recommend it so I hope you get a chance. Last year we were double booked at the D and Fremont. The D room was so hot that I got up around 3 AM and moved to the Fremont room. Slept like a baby. No complaints there.

    It's gown close to where you board SWA .. Close to a lot of eating places if I knew my directions I would tell you which side it was on.
    Just ask and they will tell you.
