    My Trip Report

    ​​Have some time to kill before heading to the airport, so I thought I'd get a jump on this live (hopefully) TR. I usually leave the TR writing to SandsFan, but unfortunately he wont be joining us this trip... :thumbsdown:

    My goal is to go heavy on the pics and light on the commentary (with the exception of this intro), and to post fairly regularly (I am usually worthless once I get among the flashy lights and booze...so cross your fingers). Hopefully it will be made easier with all of the VP and VK Porn I'm going to hit! :evillaugh

    Below is a brief itinerary and some pics.... Hope you enjoy the ride!! :thumbsup:

    Sounds like a good trip plan. Curious why you need a breathalyzer

    First win: Traffic on 285 wasnt horrible (not in our direction at least), security checkpoints were empty, and we're already sitting down having some pre-flight drinks... so far so good. :)

    So sad we couldn't make the trip. Would love to have seen Elton John again and hang out for a few days. I expect to see a lot of VP and VK porn. I also expect FRF (First Royal Flush) to finally get one. No need to wait 30 years like me. I showed FRF how its done last trip so its his turn.

    Bachannal: be sure to wear stretch pants and pace yourselves. Less that 90 minutes, your just light weights.

    Have a great trip and enjoy your time with your GF, FRF and PP.

    Looking forward to your impressions of Gold Coast. I'm always interested in what people think of places off the beaten path.

    And Lotus of Siam! :thumbsup:

    285 moving at 4pm on a Friday, that is a win! I definitely don't miss that traffic! Good luck! And definitely throw some BAC updates in there! :drunk:

    Good luck!

    Lotus of Siam is a must stop for the SandsFan Clan so I am sure he will be posting picts of Singha and Mee Krob for appetizers, Prik Num Plah, Stick rice, Drunken Noodles Sea Bass, Maybe some Larb Gai, BBQ Chicken, Pepper Garlic Chicken, Yummm

    Unless of course they dig in before picts :cry:

    Landed! We got off an hour and a half late due to thunderstorms, but they made a good bit of that up in the air.
    Thanks Tring, I'm hoping for some winners!
