    My Trip Report

    Ok.

    I understand.

    I have tried two live trip reports before and let's be honest, they have not been wonderful

    I tend to either blow out my phones battery early or get so refreshed I forget to post updates

    This time I will try and do better...

    Right now I am on the plane and about an hour or so from touchdown. I struggled to go on this trip. I am going solo and leaving my 14 month old boy behind which was rough. Fortunately my wife is trooper (and had a girls weekend three weeks ago). My trips to Vegas are generally split between solo and guys trips.

    Im staying at ballys fully comped in one of their newer rooms. I'm a diamond player mainly due to quantity not due to high bets. I generally play .25-$1 vp and 15-25 dollar blackjack and craps with an occasional session at a carnival game. I'm mainly a tr casino player although I'm considering joining either ti or v/p this trip as well

    I'm planning on a bunch of vp and football watching this trip. Planning on grabbing steaks at the new steakhouse at Ballys and maybe Ramsay steak. I'd like to hit tag bar at linq and check out the band at nine fine Irishmen at mom as well. Hopefully I'll have some vp porn to post sooner than later

    And I'm here! Flight on
    Time and nice weather. In the cab with an actual honest cabby which hopefully won't be the only win
    Of the trip

    Luck was not really with me the rest of the night. I did have a drunken win at baccarat but managed to donk 2/3 of that playing uth. Video poker reminded cold and I ended up down about 300 for the day salvaged by going 3-1 at the sports book. I'm actually ok with the loss as usually I get crushed the first day out here. I have s massage in a couple hours at ballys spa and hopefully that will start the day in the right direction

    Enjoying your live trip report!!! I would say only losing $300 the first day is a WIN with especially all that you did.

    Enjoy your spa treatment! Is the pool open at Bally's?
