    My Trip Report

    As my countdown clock ticks down, I am getting impatient. I am so ready to get on the road. Leave Alaska before 9 am and go thru Seattle.

    Last year I attempted to do a live report and got pissed after my first day report and I perceived a sleight - so said f - it. I will try again and without 18 friends flying in like last year . . . I hope to be more focused. All of the TR w pics have been so important to my sanity - I hope to pay back. I tried tapatalk a couple weeks ago - but it disrupted my inbox/mail connection. Any tapa experts have any ideas?

    Plan includes getting a Limo (hoping to score points with my wife) upon our 3:30 arrival, Raiding the Rock Vault, many MyVegas buffet rewards, fuel the duel and capped off with Journey on Friday. I will play mostly Roulette, Black Jack and Slots w some 3 card poker and we love the 100 hand JOB machine. It's my wife and I celebrating 14th anniversary and both of our summer birthdays. Alone time is good.

    I apologize for gaps that will happen, but I will try to improve on my failed live tr from before.

    I'm getting ready to go too. I got Tapatalk to work but can see how it is hard to keep the UPdates.

    I just checked and had to push my fight back to late Wednesday so I won't get in til Thursday morning at 1am.

    Going to try to purchase the Dualing piano off MY VEGAS. tomorrow.

    Have a safe flight and hopefully we can all meet up Thursday.

    Fresh grilled Alaskan Halibut with pea and basil puree, white risotto, and grilled asparagus is what my wife has waiting for me when I get off on my Friday night (or Tuesday night for non-industry folk). Thanks coach! Any wine pairing ideas? :)
