    My Trip Report

    Leaving ind airport in 45 minutes. Arrival in Vegas scheduled for 925.

    Renting corvette convert. For first day. Did it a couple months ago with wife and enjoyed it. First day is at silverton followed by three at Planet Hollywood. My Buddy is joining me for second and third nights.

    I have a 1/2 investment in my buddy's gambling because I'm a degenerate gambler.

    Gonna spend a little time at the pool and a lot of time gambling.

    Lots of big win pics to follow!

    Any questions or need me to check something out just let me know. I'll have a car everyday.

    Stop and say hi if you see me. I'm a 34 year old white guy and my friends a one-armed 1/2 Mexican guy. (you'll probably see him first.)

    On the rental shuttle now.

    Just a test picture. This is me in April. I'm the one on the left. I had a little too much to drink.

    Just sat down at Holsteins in Cosmo for lunch. Played random slots and vp for about an hour. Down like 40 bucks. Nothing big enough for a picture. Couldn't find anywhere to swipe in for promo at either Paris or planet Hollywood.

    Picking up car next and heading to pool.

    Man, the hookers in Vegas are really going downhill. I have a feeling the horn would cause problems in the bedroom.

    After lunch went down to get corvette. After a ridiculously long insurance pitch I went to garage to get car. It was filled with trash and had a huge dent by the drivers side headlight. The headlight was sticking out over an inch.

    Went back up stairs to tell her I'll pass on the car. She was very apologetic. I went to get the car I had reserved for all week. It was a convert from alamo ford mustang or similar. I didn't get a mustang. My options were this:

    [​IMG]

    Or one identical to it........

    I'm not impressed. It's got about 12 hp.

    Went and checked in at silverton. At the pool now. Rooms here are nice and clean. Beds are comfortable. Nice pool area. Open to guest until 10pm.

    Money on the bed pic. Those aren't winnings. I'm still down $40, and yes that is a Cosmo ticket for 67 cents.


    Sorry for bad grammar and broken sentences. Typing on phone.

    After pool time I headed to target for some supplies. From there it was rio to put the great race 2012 points on a couple cards. Now down about 200. Waiting on the Mitsubishi boat anchor at valet. Going back to silverton for a nap. I need my rest to bankrupt that f'n place this evening.

    Got back to silverton and came to the realization that if I was gonna bankrupt this f'n place than I was gonna need to skip the nap and start gamblin now.

    Bad idea.

    Had a couple hits on slots, but was only betting 60 cents/spin cause I hadnt been hitting anything. Still no quads on vp and haven't sat at a table yet. Down 370 including food tips and what not. Well within budget.

    Going to dinner at twin creeks around 8 for half price drinks and tapas. Hope to hit em hard after that.

    Well, didn't exactly bankrupt the casino.

    Went to dinner and had a few drinks. Wasn't feeling well so decided to lay down for an hour. Woke up in 7 hours. Still not feeling so well. Probably gonna hang in the room til I have to go pick up one arm at the airport.

    Decided to get up early and gamble a little. Couple penny slots gave me nothing great then put a hundred in a 25 cent triple play bonus poker. Lots of flushes and full houses to keep me in the game til I got dealt this.

    [​IMG]

    And the result

    [​IMG]

    That's right nada.

    Actually got dealt three open ended royal draws and missed all 9 draws.

    Did finally hit some quads.

    In the end lost the 100. Got it back on a old 5 reel 9 line penny machine. No pictures just a lot of little wins.

    Grabbed a chocolate shake from Starbucks and came back to room to shower. Gonna pick up one arm in a few and probably head to m to play our free slot play.

    Still down quite a bit, but still within budget so don't mind at all.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    that car is missing the I in Eclipse......convertibles must take a beating in Vegas, but it looks like a fun ride

    in the pic below the car I thought someone had skinned a squirrel and left it on your bed :eek: then I figured out from the pic below that it is your cash :evillaugh

    M is always good. Had the Sunday seafood brunch at the buffet. We both had free coupons. Regular price is $40!!!

    Spent today picking up some free play to reload the bank roll.

    In the room now at PHo. They gave us the Brendan Fraser room. How exciting.

    Gonna head down for some BJ, penny slots and large amounts of alcohol.
