    My Trip Report

    Hi All,

    i have been reading some great trip reports lately and i have just booked another Solo trip 12 days for end of October this year. I have been thinking back and reminiscing about my trip so here are some of my high lights.

    Travel - i am still young and cheap when it comes to flights (and hotels as you will find out). As my birthday is mid December flight prices where going up for people traveling home for Christmas and i chose the cheaper longer option. i flew Auckland to Sydney to Los Angeles to Las Vegas. including delays 33 hours from my door to the hotel door. Long long day but as i was by myself for the start of the holiday i was in no rush.

    First three nights solo in 4 queens downtown. This hotel was ridiculously cheap. If i paid this for a hotel in Auckland i would expect to find a dead hooker in my room when i checked in. Luckily or not depending on what your thoughts are on dead hookers as a welcome gift i found the hotel the be pleasant. Nice room, comfy bed, older bathroom but still OK for the ssss, Sleep, shit, shower and shave.

    First night in 4 queens a guy with a group was winning on roulette and would jump and click his heels. He was very drunk and the third time he did this he tripped and did a very slow motion fall / stagger in a big circle into my blackjack table head first. No major damage to him or the casino but after being awake for 40 hours was all most like a dream sequence.

    My first dumb gamboling mistake was done this night as well. $50.00 into what i thought was a 0.25 old spinning reel machine which turned out to be a 25.00 machine.One spin took it all and no alarm bells went off so not a lucky mistake.

    I love fremont street. Everything close together. Crazy People on the street. Cheaper eats and people having a good time. My kind of place and i where i am basing myself for the next trip.

    Next few days played poker in Binions and as a big poker fan reading the history of Benny Binion book this was a real treat. In Binions i became very stubborn on a walking dead machine and decided i would sit and play max bet until i saw the feature to see what happens.Well about 300 later i finally hit the bonus for roughly a $10 winning bonus. Massive win for max bet. I kicked my self for breaking a simple rule of putting good money after bad but i just wanted to see some deserving zombies get blown up. i kicked myself again as i walked back into the 4 queens with my remaining $10.00 i stood at a roulette table before the ball was sent on its way and was going to put the $10 on my birthday number but chickened out. Bam next number up was my birthday number, Hindsight can be a good and bad thing for a gambler

    Gamboling wise these days where not kind. Which is kind of how the whole trip went but i played all different games and had a lot of fun.

    Quick 4 day trip to Phoenix and Back to Vegas and Hooter casino for 2 night coming up in next installment before my Dad from the UK and my Friend from New Zealand flying out for a week or so each at the flamingo or in my Dads case tropicana as he thought the flamingo looked like a dump. a lot of drinking and funny stories to come.
