Hi VMBers. I just wanted to say hello and thanks because I've learned so much in the last month! Even though I gamble quite often at the local Indian casino here in Seattle, I went to Vegas for the first time in early March for my birthday. My first Vegas trip was also my first solo trip ever. My friends thought that it was crazy for a girl to go to Vegas by themself, especially a girl that was 28. Well, it WAS my birthday, so why not go on vacation without the stress of dealing with other people? It was great to be on my own and be responsible for just me, no sharing rooms, trying to schedule time together, etc. I'm a slots player and can play for hours and hours, whereas my friends wanna party and sun worship. I absolultely hate the heat. Anything beyond 75 degrees and I start getting cranky.... When I got back, I realized I should've checked out this board before I left for Vegas! Either way, I've learned so many things regarding comps and that I probably even left comps back in Vegas Oh well... now I know for my next trip in July. I'm not looking forward to the heat but I can stay cool by gambling, right? Anyways, I enjoy eating, drinking, and gambling. It seems like I'm surrounded by the right people here! Everyone looks really nice and helpful here... I look forward to learning more and who knows, maybe I'll even write a TR about one of my boring trips this year! Cheers!
