    My Trip Report

    Hi All
    Gearing up for my trip this week and for doing my 1st TR and a live / semi-live one at that.
    Loaded up the Tapatalk app and have been fooling around with it and think I have it figured out as far a posting photos etc - fingers crossed.

    Anyways...the details
    This is about the 10th time I have done this particular trip that coincides with NFL Championship weekend along with a bunch of other guys (20 of them). Most of them are at the Trop and are far less degen than I am...many are playing golf, eating etc and gambling is way down the list of activities for them.

    I am at the Mandalay Bay 1/21-1/24; 3 nights comped, $175 FP and $50 dining credit - usually I split my time between The M & MB, but one less day in my trip this go round so settled on MB for the whole stay.
    Arriving via Frontier from Houston late this Thursday nite after a full day at the office...
    My plan is to hit it hard Thursday nite (mostly VP & Slots) and not stop.
    Friday late AM poker tourney at MGM or Caesars
    Friday nite - meet up with all the guys at some point - dinner / after dinner shenanigans
    Saturday - low stakes poker tourney in one of the Trop suites with around 15 of the guys
    Sat nite - dinner at Pizza Rock downtown and more debauchery
    Sunday - watching football and flight home.
    Hopefully i can provide a fair amount of slot porn for everyone's viewing pleasure.....
    John

    Good luck! The slots at MB were good to me this past weekend. Hope they're still paying out for you!

    On the plane...1st time on frontier in years, literally a plastic lawn chair with some padding. The tray is just wide enough to hold my paperback...a laptop would have to sit.....well on my lap. I wonder if they'll request the tray tables to go up...friggin hilarious. Glad it was only $59 including bag fees for the flight.

    Welcome to the new Frontier! But being crammed like a sardine is worth some of their prices, imo. And yes, they will ask for the tray up. Lol

    Good luck!

    The eagle has landed, I repeat, the eagle has landed. (Or whatever creature is on the tail of the sardine can we just arrived on). Worst turbulence ever for the 1st hr, it was so quiet, u could hear people groaning.....then free drinks for everyone.... Not sure how that happened, but the 2-3 rows around me didn't pay for our cocktails or snacks!
