    My Trip Report

    I'm not sure I would classify this as a "Live" trip report, but I'll do my best to post pictures and the occasional commentary as time permits. I will, of course, provide a full write-up after my trip to fill in all the details.

    This is our annual Spring Trip - the one that started my Vegas addiction almost 20 years ago. Not 100% sure my count is correct, but I believe this is the 15th spring trip over that 20 year period. Of the 12 people joining this year, only 2 have never been on a previous Spring trip with us (my girlfriend and one of my buddy's girlfriend).

    • MGM Grand
    • 6 couples
    • I am sharing a Marquee 2 bedroom suite with one of the other couples
    • The others have either regular room or Executive Suites

      [*]Thursday night:
    • Lotus of Siam group dinner

      [*]Friday:
    • Cabana
    • Couples massage (girlfriend and I only)
    • Dinner: Craftsteak (8 of 12)
    • Hakkasan for some (but not me)

      [*]Saturday:
    • Cabana
    • Girlfriend and I do helicopter tour of Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon
    • Julian Serrano (girlfriend and I only)
    • Penn & Teller (girlfriend and I olnly)

    14 hours until I leave for the airport.

    Good luck, JD. I sure enjoy following along on these TRs. Thanks for not posting a pic of Satan's Bronco on your way into DIA. That thing is skeery.

    Good luck jd, looking forward to this report as always. I think to blackjack players especially your reports are like crack.

    Also congrats on still being with that girl! I remember you wrote about that whole story in a recent report. (and if this is a different girl, congrats on that instead! :wink2:)
