    My Trip Report

    This is an 8 day trip to the promised land with home base being Flamingo. This is my (Earl) sixth trip to Vegas. Earl isn't my real name, just a Vegas name. I will be traveling with a Vegas virgin which we will call Wade.

    We are teachers in our mid/late 20s in the fine state of SC where public education is top of the line. I am engaged to the woman of my dreams and Wade is a single fella. My goal of this trip is to be the best wingman of all time.

    The two of us combined are on a budget of about 2,500-3,000 for an 8 day trip. Needless to say we will be doing everything on the cheap. Here are some things to expect ITT:

    - Pics of chip porn, food, video poker, and lots of pure drunken bad decisions
    - Stories of winning several jackpots
    - Adventures of Earl and Wade stumbling through sin city and hopefully making friends along the way

    We fly from Charlotte to Detroit to Las Vegas and arrive at 7pm local time. First stop is stage door casino to stock the room with booze and use trash cans as coolers. Then straight to Ellis Island for BBQ and $5 craps table while loading up on multiple beers. Can't wait!

    Wade has checked in. Off to a great start with an old man in a kangol hat being sent back through TSA screening before I could be checked. He didn't seem to get the concept of 'empty everything out of your pockets' and, as a result, got his Pall Mall's taken by the TSA agents.

    Landed in the promised land. Time to get a cab to Flamingo. I promise I'm not normally this cheap but we are telling cabbie what hotel and if he tries to longhaul us, we are either getting a free cab ride or he is getting to talk to the taxi authority. Hopefully he doesn't take tunnel or highway and there's no confrontation.

    I actually pray for the tunnel these days so that I get a free ride.

    I love the username and the fact you've got a separate Vegas name.

    I think mine would be Ralph. No one is named Ralph any more.

    Great start to the report!

    Curious to see the cabbies reaction to his upcoming no tip/fare

    Well the bastard immediately accepted 15 bucks. I anticipated the rejection and was going to say sorry pal you missed you opportunity. Fee was 26. When I said 15 he took it immediately. Oh well, fair price for a normal cab ride
