    My Trip Report

    So, once more, I will journey to the land that time forgot...RENO!
    A couple months back, my wife got free tickets to see Terry Fator, with a free night stay at Silver Legacy; so of course we booked it!
    Originally we didn't intend on staying the entire weekend, but a coworker of hers is coming up with her husband on Saturday, so I hurried up and booked Grand Sierra Resort for Saturday night
    Should be a fun trip; I plan on a LOT of pictures (Since I know 99.9% of yall will never step inside Washoe County)
    We're driving up Friday (11/20) midday (I took the day off, but wife is working half-day), renting from Avis (as usual), and taking $600 for random gambling urges.
    The plans are:
    Friday night dinner at Steakhouse (Either [email protected], or Harrahs); then on to Terry Fator show at 8pm.
    After the show we'll probably just play UTH at Legacy
    Saturday plans are to breakfast buffet at Legacy, then move over to Grand Sierra Resort, probably bowl a couple games there and then dinner is still TBD
    Saturday night will include more gambling (My wife wants to teach her coworker/husband how to play UTH)
    Sunday E.T. phones home!

    Come along for the degenerate ride through derelict RENO!

    So Jealous. Take some photos of the Cal-Neva if you wander in, I love that dive, had so much fun playing low stakes blackjack there, put out an occasional bet for the cute dealer and felt like a total "George". In fact I enjoyed Reno a lot when I was there this summer. Will you be partaking in the Awfull-Awfull?

    Haha, I will DEFINITELY have a lot of time on my hands this weekend, so I will FOR SURE take pics inside Cal-Neva. (friends of mine are crap dealers on grave shift)
    On the Awful-Awful..I lived for a few years at JANugget..so I've had the "other" awful-awful, and believe me, my favorite is actually at the CARSON Nugget, haha.
    But, as I said, I've got a lot of time, a 16Mp camera and a 4k video cam, so expect a LOT of pictures.

    Can't wait to see the pictures and read the Trip Report. I've never been up to Tahoe/Reno and I definitely want to check it out. Let me know what the night life scene is up there.

    If you're going to Reno/Tahoe for the nightlife...you might want to skip it, haha.
    The most "nightlife" it has, is college kids going on a "crawl" through downtown.

    EDIT: Might have to host my own pics, because it looks like VMB really cuts them down.

    Lol, I guess I could have just got more 20s rather than 100s... $600 is plenty for two nights in Reno.
