Trip is the end of March and some of these plans, obviously are subject to change. I will leave Columbus at 735am and arrive in Vegas at 1115am via a lay over at lax on Monday the 24th. I had planned on a cabbie buddy to pick me up at las but have since decided to use the bell trans VIP service after seeing that it will be the same price or so as a taxi round trip My first two nights are going to be at Luxor with one of those nights a comp from my vegas. I will be paying for a second night there in order to not have to check out and into another hotel on Tuesday. I will use Monday and Tuesday to do things at the south end of the strip down to Cosmo or so. I admit my last trip was 2011 and I never made it past Cosmo while staying at flamingo, so this will give me a chance to play catch up on this end of things. Walking will not always be easy due to severe arthritis in my ankles (which the dry Vegas air may help). Wednesday I will possibly use the monorail (courtesy of my vegas) to take me to harrahs and then walk to the mirage for my wed and thurs night stay which are comps via myvegas bonus nights. I will use this time to explore the north end of the strip. I plan on visiting Fremont street at least for a few hours one evening, would prob use a bus to get to/from. Things I want to do but will depend on several factors: 1. Catch a show. Thinking absebthe or zumanity. 2. Wicked spoon at Cosmo 3. Steak or BBQ special at Ellis island. 4. Relaxing poolside 5. Pepper mill I will be looking to play low level table minimums, more than likely blackjack and I may try to learn Paigow before going. I am not totally sure what my bankroll will be so I will have to wait until closer (mid February or so) to know total budget but I'm hoping to take $1500 to $2000 I have yet to book a flight back but I plan on coming back on the 28th of march. Other than when I was under 21 and we traveled as a family and would stay a week or three,I have never stayed four nights so adding a night may take some pressure to do "everything" as fast as I can. Last trip I got next to no sleep the first two nights and crashed and lost my last night sleeping. This trip it seems my only out of pocket upon arrival expenses will be resort fees (which I'm told May or may not be charged but I'm planning on them) and any gambling, food and shows I may see. Iv never had a comp room and my play won't warrant any comps I'm sure. I may try the $20 trick at the mirage and shoot for a volcano view room. To recap: 1 night at Luxor comp plus resort fees 1 night at Luxor paid for with first night deposit 2 nights comp at mirage plus resort fees Bell trans VIP which will be paid for in advance The nice thing about knowing everything is essentially paid for in advance will be not having to worry a lot about things if I accidentally exceed my bank roll. I don't have credit cards to fall back on. I'm debating weather to take my bankroll in cash or utilize the ATM as I need to. I have a google wallet debit card which does not charge me ATM fees (still pay atm provider fees) and a chase debit card. One thing I'm afraid of is the hotels wanting deposits or putting holds on my debit cards. When I stayed at flamingo the check in girl said it was policy but waived it for me. As you can tell, I'm trying to do this on the somewhat cheap (my vegas, bus and monorail for transportation) yet I want to have a good time. Anyone have any thoughts or insight to help in my planning? Since iv turned 21 iv only been to Vegas in 2002, 2005 and 2011. Sorry for the typos, I typed this on my iPhone.
