    My Trip Report

    Alright we are under two days out and the anticipation is reaching critical. Citking has suggested another run at some live posting. I'll admit I've been bad about trip reports before but once again going to try to do some semi live reporting. Maybe we can capture some evidence of where my inevitable Vegas injury comes from this year. Or just stem the losses by spending a little time on the phone ha ha.

    I've got tapatalk installed, and a full suite of portable batteries ready to go.

    This dive next to the Strat. We are not staying there (staying at MSS), although I heard some of rooms are open as rentals again. Everytime I've been there though the beers are cold and the conversation interesting. Aztec/Stage Door/Ellis Island low rolling loop is in our future.

    Three guys and CES - Jan 5th to 9th

    RonDiaz, The Whipping Boy, and I are heading to Vegas on the 5th to attend CES and create general debauchery. My Southwest flight arrives from mke to Vegas around 10:30 AM. TWB and Ron will be leaving together from Des Moines and will arrive a few hours later. We are all planning on using Lyft and Uber this trip - we usually get a rental but with BACs in the danger zone it's wiser (and probably cheaper) to rely on the TNCs.

    Plans include the Stage Door, Ellis Island, Aztec, and Fremont St. We're all crashing at MSS.

    Ron and I will try to do this TR live. I got EB on Southwest and git A27.

    If you're around for CES or just on an unrelated trip let us know!

    See you soon Fremont!

    My bankroll is ~$500. I'm definitely not a high roller but I do like to hit VP, craps, and BJ. I'm sure a trip or two to El Cortez is in my future.

    B06 on SWA out of DSM. TWB is picking me up about 10.30 for the jaunt down I80. MIGHT have to stop into work in the morning; all organizational hell broke loose this morning, might have to give my 2 cents before Vegas stunting.

    Overpaid for some retro UK gaming annuals at B&N today for the flight.

    Bag is 98% packed, just have to pack up the ol' Darth Vader breathing apparatus in the morning.
