    My Trip Report

    Hot damn! Just a few short hours of sleep, even fewer hours of "work," then off to the airport tomorrow early in the afternoon :banana: :woot: :banana:

    Just got off the phone with my buddy Dustin and at T-18 hours, we've had a hotel change for 2 of the nights. Low and behold, we both got an offer from ole Stevie Boy Wynn to come visit him for a measily (damn, did I just say THAT?!?) $119 per night plus $150 of his clams to play on. I wasn't a math major in college, but I'm fairly certain we're doing better on that deal versus paying $31 to stay at the Sahara those nights ;)

    So here's what we've got on tap.
    - First 3 Nights at Rio
    - Spending the weekend on the cheap at the Sahara
    - Moving Sunday to Wynn for 2 nights

    Toss in a visit to Voodoo Lounge, a few afternoons lounging by the pools, visits to some of the better buffets in town, lotsa gambling, and enough drinking to make even Doc Al proud [​IMG], maybe a few drunken phone calls :wink2: and I think I might just have a story or 2 to tell. (BTW, who had the over on when I would write LAST YEAR'S trip report? :haha: )

    Add into all of this that I checked in online with Continental and was able to move our seats from row 15 to row 7 (woohoo!! we're not sitting over the wing!) so we just might have a nice view of the strip on the way in!

    One last thought, I'm getting alot of mileage out of these 4 different versions of "Leaving on a Jet Plane" running on my MP3 players. :wiggle:

    As Larry put it best... GIDDY UP!

    I'm a bit conflicted right now--I love you I hate you I love you I hate you....

    Hope you have a BLAST and I hope you remember enough to write a good trip report when you come back:poke:

    No long now! I'm seriously considering playing hookie from work today... By the time I leave the house, I'll only be "working" for less than 4 hours anyway... and lord knows, if I have any service calls, I'm passing them off to someone else too! :wink2:

    Live update

    Four simple words... Three dollar Jagr bombs!!! We found a nice hidden treasure at O'sheas last night with that one. We both got shit faced and silly andmade a few drunken calls to our mutual friends, but I completely forgot to program any T2V'ers numbers into my phone so I didn't get to make any :( You all were probably better off though. confused2:

    We jus got from the Rio pool a few minutes ago. Dustin got plastred on Jack and Sprite, while I opted to lay off this afternoon, so I can enjoy tonights festivities at Voodoo.

    I can't wait to share the pics of this room here at the Rio. I tried the ole $20 trick along with a nice smile and scored an 1100 sq. ft. SUITE inthe Ipanema tower. This is BY FAR the best room that I've ver stayed in. I kinda feel bad that we have to leave it tomorrow to head to the Sahara :(

    BTW, I scores a bonus round win on th new WSOP machines for over $800!! Winning trip so far!

    Laters!

    But yet, I actually clapped while ready the last post because I get excited for anybody having the best time they can have in Vegas.

    Party on!
