    My Trip Report

    My name is Donk and I'm a Vegasaholic. After 23 nights in the promised land over 2012, it's been 11 long months since I last set foot in Las Vegas and I am beyond ready to get back. I'm hoping for two things from this trip report: 1) to give something back to this forum and everybody that has kept me entertained and slightly sane during my long absence and 2) a record of those nights that I can't seem to remember the next day.

    There will be blackjack and video poker and craps, oh my. I had planned on doing a trip report from my last trip, but I'm kinda lazy so I never got around to it(why do today what I can put off until tomorrow or a year later). I'm hoping the tables are better to me this year than they were last year.

    Quick 2012 Recap:

    The ATMs at Aria were about the only machines that paid out by the end of that trip. I did run into some forum members last year(Macker, BeeeJay and crew) which was a lot of fun though I'm pretty sure you would've thought I was a 14-year old girl meeting Justin Bieber as excited as I was :beer:

    So yeah, I like to drink and gamble then drink some more. :wave:

    I'm currently ~10 hours from take-off, looking forward to a great trip as well as sharing the highlights here(will include any lowlights as well). I will be phone posting only, so I apologize for crappy pictures and typos in advance. If anybody's around, shoot me a pm, I'm always up to grab a drink or five. :drunk:

    I bet you'll see me in Vegas(would be more appropriate for rodeo week but I can't wait that long)...

    Nice recap from last year, a few pics sums it up pretty good. What the deal with the fire?

    Good luck this trip, hope you end up with a fist full of those pumpkins.

    That was the first picture of a dumpster fire I could find, which is basically how the end of that trip went. Definitely hoping for better results this time.


    Thanks for the kind words everybody. Finishing up some last second packing, then off to the airport. :cheers:

    Checked in and lost $100 roulette spin on the way to the room. Dropped stuff in room and heading to the craps table. This could be my last sober post for a while.

    So I just told a group of people how to get from Bellagio to Caesars in Mandarin, except I don't speak a lick of Mandarin. Turns out drunk me is trilingual maybe. I hope they found Caesars Palace; there's no way they got lost, right?

    And f*** video poker, craps and blackjack at Aria.

    Great Report so far, thanks for the live updates, and remember it is only a loss if you quit, keep playing and it could turn into a win..... good luck either way and sounds like the Makers are going down easily!

    Got a little ugly last night. Down about $1200, so going to try and dig out of that hole today. First things first though, it's breakfast time.

    Thanks, they were going down almost as quick as the bankroll.

    I have zero luck there, but I keep insisting on playing there for some reason. If I could stay away from the tables and just play the bartop vp there, I'd probably do better. Lady friend gets in tomorrow morning so I've got to hit it hard today while I can :thumbsup:

    Video poker not so good, but only down $100 there. Hit and ran Aria's blackjack tables for a quick 5 hundo. Seems like all their stand on soft 17 tables are $25 mins which I like. I'm sure that will change later, but taking advantage of it while I can.

    Off to get less sober...
