    My Trip Report

    Here we go!

    My normal routine is to go to Vegas solo. My last trip was last July to watch the NBA Summer League games. There are times when being solo is more satisfying. Then, there are trips that being with your SO/BF is truly satisfying but in special ways. Judy hasn't gone with me in about three years and we've got an agenda that I couldn't appreciate or enjoy so much without her.

    Activities:
    Scoot City Tour/Red Rock Canyon
    Raiding the Rock Vault at Tropicana
    Don Rickles at Orleans
    Pool Time at Mirage
    Shooping at Gucci/Forum Shoppes (won a 500.00 gift cert. at Horsehoe last year)
    Exploring the Linq area shops and bars.
    Happy,happy,fun times (expect no pics of this activity!)
    Mostly slots mixed with roulette between Mirage, Harrahs, Venetian, Wynn, Bellagio and Paris.

    Meals:
    Old Homestead
    Giada's
    Mon Ami Gabi
    Olives
    Oyster Bar (Harrah's)
    ...Mostly using CET RCs since they have been my dominant properties. MLife just doesn't offer the local multipliers, etc. that CET has in my market (Tunica) for me to have gathered too much in Express Comps.

    I hope the "upgrade gods" will be on my side Thursday when we check in at the Mirage. I've got a couple of approaches that may work out to my advantage. Stay tuned and I will pass on whichever one hopefully was successful.

    Watch for updates as much as I can do on the fly or at least at the end of each day.

    Just resisted White Castle and chose Walgreens as our first stop. Are we high rollers or what?

    The 20.00 trick worked to bump up to the Tower King 25th floor overlooking the volcano and strip. Had to wait until 3:00 to get into the room but we had room keys from check in and they texted me the room number so we could go straight up without returning to the cheeck-in counter. Nice room with double sinks. Judy is happy about that for sure.

    So far, only played 40.00 at Harrah's and left with 20.00. We got the text from Mirage and wanted to cut that slot session short so we could unpack and rest.

    Trying to figure out the pic posting process so I can post some now and later.

    Good start so far. Looking forward to reading the rest. Give the Mirage and Harrahs a run for it.

    Haven't been very conscientious in my TR. Briefly, great meals, fun activities, no huge losses and Judy had her shopping spree (?) at Gucci.
    I promise to provide a summary with details soon of our days 1 and 2.

    Day three.
    Still no time for details from our first two days. Just thought I'd pop on here and let all of you know that we haven't been abducted in the desert or anything. Just havng a fun time and don't want to slow down for too long to compose the masterpiece quite yet.
    Hang tight VMBers, the exploits of Martin and Judy will be revealed soon (don't expect too much wild crazy stuff..just the "what we did at summer camp kind of stuff). No monkey costumes, cuccumbers or hooker stories..sorry!
