    My Trip Report

    got in at 12:00pm on 3/2 had to wait on the shuttle for about 30mins before we could leave:grrr: just sitting there looking at all the cabs go by so this guy could jump on our ride to give use a sale spill about a free show from Winn, BUT, you had to be over 28,make over 60K and wear only dress shoes....I guess, I don't know? So as you see its already starting off good.

    Got to the hotel and did the whole $20 trick at the Trop and worked like a charm:thumbsup: she gave me a choice of a mini suit or a closer tower room (room 1103) so I took the closer tower with a NICE view of the strip, sorry no pic's but, didn't spend much time in the room awake "sober"

    I called my friends up who flew in from Seattle that morning and then unpacked and met up, they told me that they had been up late the night before and were going to take a nap and call me:snore: So I stuck around there hotel (MGM) to play, because I knew that you cant sleep your first time in LV

    So I hit the Crazy 4 card hit a straight flush and a few straights after only 30mins of play, So by the time my friends take their 45min nap ....lol I'm up $450. I was a winner at the MGM, that was a first for me.

    When my friends came down we did the strip tour from MGM to Mirage and loosing $20 at 3-4 on the way down and winning $100 at Harrah's on 3 card poker then we barely made it back:cry: my feet were killing me!

    3/3 started off good we left to go down town to eat at the Paradise Buffet, I think its at the Fremont casino, I love there breakfast down there. After breakfast we went to Binnion's and I lost $100 on craps then won $25 back at 3 card and then hit The Gold Nugget and it hit me I lost $100 there on 3 card, after looking at at the places to loose you money at down town we took the long, slow and over capacity bus back and making every stop along the way:evillaugh we were going to stop at the Peppermill on the way back but, there was just too many people on the bus to get off and try to get back on later.

    After the bus from hell we played at a few close casino's around ours and won a little and lost a lot and finely I was so tired that I had to crash , I think It had something to do with the beer:drunk: but, I'm not sure

    3/4 started around 4:30AM for me since I'm still stuck in central time zone and going to bed at 11pm out there is like me crashing at 9pm I was ready to go...lol This was the morning my friends were flying back and so I met up with them and said our good bye's and they left at 8:30AM :cry:

    I walked around for an hour or so then hit the room to try to sleep till play time witch for me was 4:00PM and made my way down to Pairs to play some 3 card and got busted so I tried to drink a few to get me back on track walked to The Flamingo and started to win :drunk: not too much but, hey they were buying the drinks so I went back to Pairs to drink some more of their beer and stumbled up on a craps table where a bunch of Mexican business guys were playing and looked like they were having a blast, So I buy in and the next thing I know my $20 turns into $100 then this guy on the other end rolls for 30mins!:beer: then the Mexicans 15mins and now I'm up $200 then the 30min guy rolls 30mins more and his hitting every field and hard way on the board. THEN HE LEAVES TO GO TAKE A PISS!!!!! and hands the dice to his wife:grrr::grrr::grrr: she had 4rolls and craps out. after that everyone hit the bank, I thought I was good with $300...lol some of the others in line said $700, $1000 and one guy had 5K.

    After a very long walk in the cold I stopped by PH to play some craps and won a quick $70 and took it on back to the hotel, I was too drunk to play any more and crashed:drunk:

    3/5 not much to say about this day I had a flight that was leaving at 6:00PM and didn't want to do much of anything , So I sleep as long as I could and ran over to Fat burger for a good hangover reliever then bought some gifts for everyone and had to play just a little bit more, So I went next door to NYNY and roll some craps and made just enough to cover the gifts and went to the airport (HELL) the folks who work there are the worst, I felt like I was in an other country.......do this do that......:nono:"COME ON COME ON PEOPLE!!!! BLA BAL BAL!!!!" REAL ASSHOLES! I know their job is to help make it safe for us to fly but, trying to rush us through as fast as they can yelling is not the way, some folks didnt know what was going on.

    After all of that it was off to try out I think is going to be the next big ride at Six Flags, its called " :wink2:2 HOURS OR HELL:wink2:" now I haven't been on too many planes (maybe 10x) but, I have to say is one was the roughest one of them all especially when coming in I thought the wings were going to touch the runway :eek: everyone was tripping out...lol its all good now Im back home and ready for the next trip:thumbsup:

    That craps table sounded like a blast; not a bad little win to go home with.
