    My Trip Report

    I am just finishing up packing and getting ready to take my first solo trip to Vegas. Plane leaves at 6:30 tonight and should get there around 7:30 if all goes well, then off to Bally's. Don't have a single thing planned except drink lots of beer and gamble. Hopefully I can manage my bankroll for each day so I don't go broke early on and have nothing to do.


    Still have over 5 hours to go so I might as well go start drinking!

    A solo trip to Vegas is my dream. Trying "but dear, you're out of vacation time" angle. LOL
     
    First trip for 2017!

    Just got to the airport right as the plane landed and got through security in less than a minute. Gonna have a quick beer or two, watch the last season of Review with Forrest Macneil and hopefully be in Vegas soon.

    The biggest challenge for me on solo trips is to take a break from gambling. There's so much to see and do, but those casinos keep me inside. Enjoy yourself and good luck.

    So far things are looking good. I got off the plane, got into a lyft car to Ballys, and got checked in all within 40 min. Now off to get some beers and go gamble.

    Couldn't win a damn thing tonight, down about $500. Here's my pocket dump, few bucks from Ballys and a giant ass sub from from Nosh.
