    My Trip Report

    I was set to come out this weekend but had to delay my trip till Monday. I really missed out on the VMBers Craps and Pay Triples after party. Plus missed gambling with Packer, StevieD , Pay Triple and a few more VMBers. I’ll be flying in Monday evening. I have a Wynn parlor suite booked and Rolls Royce Phantom to pick me up. Not sure how much I will hit the tables but should be fun. I'm thinking I need to take more pictures this time.

    Here is the Plan
    1. Win Money go 8-4
    2. Pinball HOF (try again)
    3. Pool
    4. Spa
    5. Mirage Secret Garden
    6. Gamble with some new fellow VMBers
    7. Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay

    Have a great trip pp. I will be in NY and Chicago this week, and will be looking to keep up with your trip. Probably hit Rivers Fri night and Saturday before returning home.

    Thanks. You have a safe trip.

    Starting to look like I'm going to miss the group. But hey I'll still make the best of it.

    Yes she can only come mid week is the reason I had to shift my trip from.

    Sat to Tuesday. To. Monday to Wednesday

    I'd rather come over the weekend

    So sending her to encore spa. Any other suggestion?

    Ladies on VMB. I need your help

    Will have to see. I might. I know I'm going to go 3 more times. This year at least.

    Unless I get killed at the tables. Then it is a self impose two month banned.

    My wife loves the chef's special creation, Omakase I think, at Nobu. It takes a couple hours but I get a lot of brownie points for spending the time with her. I eat something simple and sit there the next 90 minutes.

    Also, rent a car and take her for a drive along the scenic view in the mountains or along lake Mead/back through Valley of Fire. Maybe hit a couple restaurants off the strip like Lotus of Siam.

    My wife doesn't really gamble much so I always like to find an activity for us to do. Helicopter into Grand Canyon was another big hit.

    I should try the logic of going three more times because I will be on a wife imposed ban starting early next year. Well, not really. We will be welcoming two additions to the family in February so I will break quite a few months until the twins are mobile. We are also planning an early November trip to bring my wife's mother. She doesn't gamble but thinks Vegas is so unique.

    Safe travels, have fun and win lots! The Mirage Secret Garden currently has the tiger cubs out around 1 to 4pm. I've scheduled time to see them the end of the month, after seeing all their photos on their page on Facebook.
