    My Trip Report

    I don't know the who's, where's or even why's at this point but I have the week off work and I just decided that I am going to Vegas because I'm single and I can! I will attempt to keep people updated....

    Details becoming more clear. Off to Ballys arriving Tuesday night leaving Friday. Limited budget but not concerned. Anytime it comes towards the end of my daily budget I plant myself at a sportsbook or bar and turn into party mode (considerably less expensive than gambling... Just won't win)... If anyone is in the area drop me a line :)

    The title of this is now inaccurate... it was actually cheaper to book from the 16th oil the 20th. How I was able to sneak a Friday night in there and have it come out as cheaper is a mystery to me but I won't fight it. My plan is to have a growing gambling budget by the day so that I do blow my wad (so to speak) too early. Pacing myself, as you might have discovered yourselves, is MUCH harder alone. One last workout (in the form of volleyball) before the trip... I really can't even wait for this!

    Even though I have an ever decreasing budget I think that I owe this trip to everyone who does not have direct access to all of the fun things you can do in life! LOL

    Will you be playing table games, slots or a mixture?

    A complete mixture of everything with perhaps the exception of "The Big Wheel" (but I'm not saying I won't). If The random number generator on the slots aren't going my way I'll slow it down with a poker tourney or bet low on a game and find a great place to watch it with some drinks. What would you do?

    That sounds like a great plan, I would do the same except for the poker (I'm not great at it). Going solo I would definitely try to meet up with some vmb'ers if possible. I can sit at a low limit BJ table for hours, that's my favourite these days. Enjoy your time away from the crap weather!

    Half contemplating a night at the Fremont so I can play low limit BJ DT actually. We'll see I guess: thanks Raptor. Deciding if I want to go down to Toronto insanely early.... flight doesn't leave til 8:30 tonight but you never can tell with that drive through Huntsville, Gravenhurst, Orillia, and Barrie. Guess it leaves me a lot of time if it's decided that I'm on some sort of "list" at the airport because my name is so common. (I better start getting a lot more optimistic FAST! lol)
