    My Trip Report

    Hi, Mike here – long time no post.

    You may remember me from such epic fail live VMB Trip Reports as “October 2013, Why God, Why?” and “October 2014, This Was A Bad Idea!”

    Well after a few significant life changes in 2015 that took up most of my free time and free money (not divorce or children, glad you're all thinking positive!) - it's time for a little weekend trip to Vegas, and I'd love to bring you all with me (unless you're an asshole, then I'd prefer if you didn't come along)

    Leaving tomorrow, which is Friday the 8th – back Monday morning, landing and going straight to the office from the airport.

    Staying at both Aria and Cosmo, have FP and RC at both places, plus a decent amount of cash that was way more modest before I essentially tripled it at my local in the last two days – the ol' “let's light the fucking money on fire and spend the weekend at home instead” trick backfired. I'll get those pics posted as part of this TR pretty soon.

    I gotta get re-acquainted with the Tapatalk app and picture uploading jam, because if you've read or are pretending that you read my last trip reports, I do like to take pictures.... I also like to drink, and swear, and gamble.

    If you're bored this weekend, and based on the shit show that El Nino is throwing at us during that time, subscribe and check back in routinely starting tomorrow afternoon.

    Thanks for bringing us along Mike but you are a brave man going straight to work from the airport. I could never do that, I always need a Vegas recovery day or two after a trip deoending on the carnage, win or lose.

    Take no prisoners, lets see a 6 figure win for you this weekend.

    Okie dokie, posting this from Tapatalk to see if it still works.... these are the two jackpots I hit at my local this week that provided a bit of a boost to the Vegas funds. No idea what picture size is appropriate so will try this and adjust accordingly.

    Truth, I always need a couple days from my Vegas "vacation" because it never is one.

    Testing pic posting from app camera to see if it keeps image on iPhone or not (duckhorn migration in case you needed to know)

    Use any other app, than tapatalk, it's garbage.
    Use Imgur and link us to those 10mp photos, rather than the 1mp photos tapatalk/forum allow

    (The trick for tapatalk is to install a very old version of it and don't let it update.)

    Don't sell yourself short, if you were in the military you would be a Major Asshole. :)

    I only used Tapatalk and seems easy enough for me... maybe it's Tim's Windows phone? :poke:

    Good luck the trip from a fellow asshole here!
