    My Trip Report

    We head out crazy early on Tuesday morning. Should be in Vegas by about 9AM Vegas time. I'll be attending a conference. The wife will be attending the pools. Other than the conference and pools we will also be enjoying some of the Vegas dining (wife is a foodie) and some of the spectacular gambling with a special focus on blackjack and craps. Last time I did an obscenely long trip report at the end. This time I'm going to try and do a semi live trip report. No promises but my hope is you all will enjoy my report. More soon!

    The boarding passes are printed and the bank trip is complete! T-minus 15 hours.

    Landed in Vegas! Two guys sitting right behind us nearly got on a fight on the flight here. Long story short - kid was acting up (as kids sometimes do on a plane). Passenger got irate about it and spoke harshly to the mom. The dad took offense and they spent the next few minutes talking about kicking each other's tail. Flight attendants got involved and got it stopped. Wow - some people. Can't we all just go to Vegas and have fun?

    Played a small amount of Roulette while waiting on the room to be ready. Down $300. Not a good start!

    Good start in the sense that you're staying at one of my favorite places and you'll have craps and blackjack stories!

    lol at the two people about to fight on the plane. You should have started announcing odds like a carny barker....

    Thanks everyone for your comments! I've enjoyed all if them!

    We unpacked then headed over to VP to walk around and play. We drifted from there over to the Wynn and Encore.

    Here is the gambling log so far:
    Aug 5th: - down $400 so far total.
    - Mirage roulette - lost $300
    - Palazzo craps - won $500 -
    - Palazzo slots - lost $100
    - Wynn BlackJack - lost $500
    - Wynn craps - won $500
    - Wynn blackjack (again because sometimes I do dumb things)- lost $500

    Ate dinner at B&B Beer and Burger. It's in the Venitian back near the sports book. Highly recommend! Best burger of my life.

    We are dog tired and probably about done for the day. More tomorrow!

    One last post for the evening. Took the (2) $100 Mirage chips I had left over from the Roulette this morning and went to a craps table and had some great luck this evening. Got the $200 up to $600 and decided to quit exactly even for the day.

    For anyone who is interested, I usually play a roughly table minimum pass line bet with full odds. Then I'll also play one come bet also with full odds. That has worked out well today.

    Thanks again!
