    My Trip Report

    In about 24 hours I will be on my way to our favorite city for three nights! This will be my 11th trip to Vegas and second trip this year. The main “excuse” for this particular trip is to see Britney Spears and her revamped show. The BF is a huge fan, we’ve already seen her once about two years ago. As per usual we will be staying at Aria. We have two of the three nights comped, a bit of freeplay and some resort credits.

    I will be posting here live as much as possible with pics, gambling reports, food porn, and ramblings. Also I'm going to attempt to live tweet some of the highlights of my trip. If you are inclined to use the Twitters please follow me: @TwoWayHardEight

    Loose plans for the trip so far:
    - Britney Saturday night
    - Video Poker, Blackjack, Craps, and maybe some Roulette and Sluts
    - Maybe I’ll finally try some Poker in Vegas, or some full Baccarat
    - Drinking
    - Luxor Temptation Sundays Pool Party
    - More drinking
    - Maybe a nice dinner or two, want to try some restaurants at Aria we haven’t been to yet
    - Wandering the strip
    - A little low-rolling downtown and off-strip
    - Use some ACG coupons and MyVegas awards
    - Maybe running into another VMB'er, will be wearing my wristband, you’re most likely spot me at a VP machine or Craps table at Aria
    - Expanding my chip collection, still have a few places on The Strip missing
    - Whatever else Vegas brings our way

    Got about double the bankroll I had last trip, but still not quite at par with my bankroll on some previous trips. Still building it back up after saving for and buying a condo. Haven’t had a winning trip for a long while, so that would be nice, 11th time’s the charm? It’s also been four months since my last trip (why do I wait so long!?) so I’m super excited.

    I hope you’ll follow along!
