    My Trip Report

    Just putting this here now because I may do some live-ish updates during the trip before a full TR after returning.

    We've got a lot planned, so we'll see what we get done. As usual it will be myself and my two sisters in this trip.

    Flying out of DCA tomorrow. Trying out Omni Limo instead of Presidential (used them for years, but less than pleased with their service the last few times).

    We'll be making use of various MyVegas/Groupon/TravelZoo type things. Cabana pool day and Thunder From Down Under show on Thursday, Grand Canyon day trip on Friday, one sister doing O again on Saturday, KA on Sunday for all of us (repeat for one, new for the other two), and as usual whatever else randomness we get in to.

    Just to confirm we did use Omni for our trip 7/24 - 8/2, after being disappointed by Presidential last few times.
    They did great and we will use them going forward.

    BsHowell, have a great trip. My brother and his kids stayed at Luxor for part of our trip, so we spent a lot of time there. Was disappointed that marachi brunch at Tacos and Tequila no longer had a marachi band playing! Check in lines were long, but we got mlife gold while there, so I was able to use the VIP check in line and there were only about 5 people in line. Phew! Have a blast!...

    So glad to hear your Omni trip went well. I'm hoping we have the same experience. Hoping they'll be our new "regular".

    I remember reading your report from last year with your sisters! The high roller adventure had me laughing out loud. Good Luck and safe travels.
