This summer, as always my son is going to his moms in Texas for give weeks and I am thinking of going to Vegas one of those weeks. I was suppose to go last year but his grandma ended up not being able to watch him around the last minute so I had to cancel, which was a huge bummer to me since everything was paid for, then I had dog issues as well. This year, I am living in a new Condo, no dog and will not have the kid for the first five weeks after he gets out of school. I was thinking about booking a June 8-11th trip but it would have to be a frugal one because I do have a few more bills this year BUT also a reduction in child support since my oldest turned 18 which may even out the bills (Support stops in a couple weeks then I get a real idea). So the thinking was buy the flights out fairly soon, maybe even pay for the hotel up front on Expedia or something. Even with no trips planned I have been on myvegas daily collecting bonuses and such and have over 330,000 gold coins, so i could use those for a couple meals and a show (or a night at Mandalay Bay and skip a night at the Flamingo or Downtown which is where I would be staying to save money). I would not gamble much, a little sure but I work in a casino, dealing Blackjack and do not think I would get the thrill from it like I use to. I know when I was in Tunica last year it was not a thrill and I got bored quickly. I am thinking using the trip as a get away, lounge around the pool, take my good camera and get some great Vegas photos and just see what changed. I think after airfare and hotel I could possible do the four days for under $500 if I use the Myvegas to cover a couple buffets and a show. Curious what the general thoughts are on the plan. Does it sound doable? It would be a solo trip and I usually eat only once a day and in reality if it were not for the myvegas comps I would be just fine with a burger and fries or something.
