    My Trip Report

    I woke to get down to my BJ tournament. Well after 19 hands out of 25 I was still in 3rd place and only top two advances so I had to up the bets and proceeded to loose 4 straight hands. So much for that. Well at least it was free.

    I strolled over to the LVC and tried their only BJ game that wasn't a continous shuffler and proceeded to loose $200 there. Next stop was the fitz where things went smoother and won $300 back. Now I was more comfortable again.

    We decided to take a drive out to red rock to show Rhona more what the town is like. It is a lavish casino and really like it out there. I couldn't resist the pull of craps. I just love that game but know I am way behind in it profit wise. I was into it for almost $300 before I won enough back to lessen it to a $100 loss. There they gave me the largest Whiskey and diet cokes anywhere. It must have held 20 ounces and it had booze in it also.

    We got back home and traveled over to the Gold spike for some cheap BJ. They had $3 tables with max of $200. I just never could get a good streak going so I could bet the max. I got back to even several times but then it would drain away again. It was fun though with the other people just betting up to $5 and we had good conversation. It is amazing how clean this place is now. I will be back there. I ended up loosing $200.

    Over to the El cortez and played some of that lovely craps. here it was better and I cashed out a fairly fast $68 profit. I went to a BJ table and found a lady on hot streak. My last all in bet I had a 20 but she drew a 5 card 21 to end the session with a $168 loss.

    Out the door and counting my money. I wanted to be sure to leave town with extra. But I had some to spare so back to the Fitz where I had not loss yet this trip. Bought in for my $300. It was not good and was a fairly fast drain. My last bet , once again , I was dealt a 20 and the dealer drew 4 cards to get a 21.

    I took this as an omen and gave up. It was off to bed.

    Woke up in time to pack before mandatory 11 check out and to the car. We went to the palms and had their brunch which was good but probably worth it because I had a 2fer 1 coupon. I had crab legs and the rest was just adequate. I would not go out of my way for it though. then to the airport and our one hour flight delayed so it meant we got back to Iowa around 10:30 and then a 2 hour drive home before work early the next morn.

    Overall it was a good fast trip. I still had enough extra money to pay for the rental, so the total cost of the trip was 1 plane ticket. it would have cost me that much to stay home. just what I needed. I hope to take more of these quick trips in my days and years to come. esp with the offers that have arrived.

    till my next trip, which maybe in July with 2 of my daughters and their hubbies. stay tuned
