    My Trip Report

    Dougie (Bazootch) said it best this afternoon in an email:

    Damn it's gonna be a long winter!

    I can't wait till March. I'm finding myself spending more and more time surfin' this site and others looking for more tidbits to feed my hunger. I don't want to have another trip just like my last several where we are stuck in the LV Club/Binions/Imperial Palace vortex. I want to get out of that "rut" and do some new things.

    Of course, we're planning on dinner one night at Delmonico, and lots of poker at the Monte Carlo, but I keep saying I want to do some new stuff. I've pretty much seen every hotel on the strip, but the high limits keep me from gambling at most of them. This trip will be my longest, also. I think I may be there for 5 nights.

    I didn't want to mention this before, but I'm also *thinking* about another trip in August, but maybe staying at the Bellagio. Not sure about that one yet, but I can't seem to shake the idea... [​IMG]

    Anyhow, I can't wait. My vacations for the next year are pretty much set. Two trips to Vegas, a cruise, and a couple of trips to Phoenix and Tunica on the weekends. Right now, I've got Vegas on the brain.

    Glad I have this place to indulge my addiction.

    Mikey

    Here's an idea for you Mikey, how about cruising the local casinos. Get a car, and leave Downtown and the strip behind. Make a day or two of hitting the various Coast Casinos, or visiting Green Valley Ranch. It'll give ya something new to do, and you might find a new must visit place.

    OK T2V crowd, I booked my March Madness flight today. I never told my wife, but the tiny dance I did after I confimed my flight kind of gave it away.

    Now its YOUR turn!! Come on Hoya and Dane! Heathcat! Sticky Fingers! Smarra! Bigdogmom! Jolly Green Giant! Booger! Sonya! LVTerry! Vegas Jer! Jimbo! AND EVERYBODY ELSE!! Let's own the town for a night. July was awesome, and we should definately do it AGAIN!!

    DangDangDangDangDangDang! I wanna go!!

    But we are booked for Hawaii from Feb. 25th-March 6th, and who can complain about that? That's going to use all my time up, so I'm going to have to either take a day without pay, or if they let me, go in the hole, to give my hubby his Christmas present - he wants to play in the New England Poker Classic at Foxwoods next March. His $200-300 buyin No Limit Hold'Em tourney is on a Friday. I just bought his airfare yesterday.

    But we'll be back in Vegas in May - yay!!! We're booked in a petite suite at TI for now. And until then, we have several trips to nearby Atlantic City to have some fun with and hopefully win something (I'm batting 50/50 so far, decent win the first trip, monster loss the second).

    Hey Kitty, dates of the calendar are just numbers. Shift them around a bit, and we will see you at the craps table in the Las Vegas Club!

    I'll just miss you guys- departing after a week in Vegas on March 12. :(

    Although, I'll be watching Mikey's musings on an August trip, 'cause after the two I've planned this winter, I'll need to start the planning for the next time..... [​IMG]

    I'll see how it goes with my December trip. I've got lots of frequent flyer miles, so that would take care of airfare... I'm a definite maybe! :D

    Since the November Trip was cancelled I am working on the March trip. I can not say yes or no at this point but it is not a good bet. It looks like I wont be back until September.

    Hey Mikey...In your trip reports I've noticed you don't mention too much about going to any bars or clubs? Are you Amish? No! You are a good time magnet. Here's something different. You and your LasVegas crew sould hit some clubs. After just a short time the place would revolve around you guys!
