    My Trip Report

    Gonna give a live TR a try. The wife and I are flying out of Orlando tomorrow evening to celebrate our 25th anniversary that we had back in March. It will actually be our 4th time in a year going to Vegas after about an eight year dry spell. Looks like a lot of hotel hopping for a week but I wanted to take advantage of the offers that we had earned. Gold Coast is the only hotel above that we have stayed at. In the past year we have stayed at the Luxor, Excalibur, Flamingo, Rio, and the Lynk.


    As far as play I like single play video poker .25 but may try some triple play on this trip. I pretty much mix it up between bar top and machines on the floor. I can spend many hours of the day playing, and probably will. The wife on the other hand is not as enthusiastic about gaming as I am- she'll dabble a little bit between vp and slots.

    We have 2 nights comped at NYNY with 75 fp and 100 rc. We have 2 nights comped at GC and 2 nights at the MSS that we're paying for. We've never been downtown before so decided to stay with the boyd properties and it seems like a lot of people on vmb like that hotel. We're overlapping a night at GC and MSS. Why? I'm not sure. I think it was because we had the 2 night comp at GC but also wanted to stay a couple nights downtown. Then we're finishing up at Bellagio with 2 nights comp and 75 fp and 100 rc.


    What plans do we have? Well, I plan on drinking and gambling alot:woohoo: The wife is going to see Donny and Marie - she lovessss Donny:love: I know she is going to the spa once or twice and sure she'll do some shopping. I guess since it's our 25th we'll spend some time together lol. Probably hit the pools and do site seeing.

    I'm not very tech savvy but will try to post photos and keep you all updated on wins and losses. Let me know if you have any questions. As noted above I would say I'm a low roller so I'll let you know if I score any more comps when I'm at particular casinos. Thanks and wish me luck!!

    Congrats on 25 years. If you do much playing at MSS ask the host if she can comp off your room. There's a host stand beside the player's club booth, if the host isn't there the person working the player's club can contact them for you. The hosts are often in the back office.

    Good luck.

    Thanks everyone. Unfortunately we are stranded here at the airport due to weather. 30 minutes past departure time but hopefully we will board soon. This is eating into my gaming time:cry:

    We are actually from Orlando, not originally. Nobody our age is from Orlando.lol Seems everybody our age migrated from other parts of the country or world- alot like Vegas I assume.

    Our flight was delayed about an hour yesterday. Southwest - but it was not their fault, mother nature. But boy did we rock after deboarding flight. Was about a 5 minute walk to baggage, and one minute wait for luggage. Walked outside to what appeared to be a huge line for a taxi, but it moved so quick I had to run to keep up. Maybe Orlando and all airports work that efficiently but it was a thing of beauty for me watching how fast they move people and vehicles thru there. I'm used to being picked up and dropped off at the airport and that can be quite hair raising. The ride to NYNY was quick and turned out to be a 20 fare including tip. No line at check in, it was 10 at night. I would say from stepping off the plane to walking in our room it was no longer than a 45 minute span. Definitely made up time from the delay.

    We went downstairs, had a slice of pizza, and the wife went back upstairs to relax. I gambled some at the center bar and a little on the floor. I had one 4oak on job but as would be expected I didn't fare to well. But, that leaves us with Friday morning and as I sit here I have nothing but optimism for the rest of the trip- especially on the casino floor.

    Talk to ya soon

    Will do! Looking forward to going the boars head. Ever since I've been 19 I have loved seating belly up to the bar and to be able to gamble is a plus!!

    Ate dinner this morning at America here in the hotel. Good Lord, the steak and eggs was the best deal at 15 bucks that I ever had. I should have taken a picture but didn't have the patience to take the phone out of my pocket - I was starving. The steak was huge, the eggs over easy, nice slab of hash browns, and a couple a slices of toast to boot. The wife had the all american breakfast that was awesome and too much to eat - same price. Definitely if looking for a good value and a nice place to seat down and eat check that place out.

    The wife has been in the room doing school work so I've been down in the casino doing some gambling the last 4 hours or so. I'm surely down some but I've had some 4oak to keep somewhat near the surface. I've had at least 7 jack and cokes to help me come closer to breaking even. It's hard to count, the damn bar tender keeps stealing my straws and that's how I keep count!!

    I'm going to see if ol' speedy here knows how to upload pictures from his phone. They will be from my gambling adventures today. Wish me luck in this aspect too (lol)

    All right so I am not quite sure what the hell I'm doing.

    Thanks for reading. This is kind of fun. I posted some pictures and the first 4 are duplicates. They are held up for moderator review - I think Sonya has me on double secret probation. (lol) I just wanted to clarify that b4 I go back down to the casino, my mouth is dry!! I hope to get better at this.

    Thanks again!!

    You aren't on any double secret probation. :haha: It's our spam filter. We try to get them approved quickly. I see the photos so someone got to them before I could.

    Just messing with you Sonya. You are such a sweetheart. Some day we are going to meet in person!!

    I'm going to attempt to post a few more pictures. I got a couple hits on bonus poker deluxe. That is like my third on this trip. That 100 hundred dollars no matter what really helps prolong the gaming. Actually if I would stay away from that damn ddb I would probably be doing really good right now. I've been playing those 2 games as well as bonus poker and dueces wild.

    OK I'm going to try to post those pictures and go down to the casino. My God, its Friday night at 7:30, what the hell am I doing in my room!! Also got some pictures of our pad here that I want to show you all. I want to get some night shots. Until then, talk to ya later.
