    Leaving for the airport in 30 minutes and will start adjusting my attitude in Delta's Sky Club. (I always try to allow an hour for this important ritual before boarding and to beat rush hour traffic.) At the moment I'm #2 on the upgrade list with 13 first class seats remaining, so we'll see how my luck is running before even getting to Vegas. This is an important trip, as the results will go a long way in determining if I go back for Halloween.

    Have fun and a great Labor Day! :)

    Both Gold Coast and Sun Coast have plenty of full pay VP machines. Wish you the very best luck and hit Royal Flush during your stays.

    Thanks everyone. Got my first class upgrade, bought a 2 hour RTC pass, caught the 108 after a 30 sec. wait, got the 202 to GC with zero.problems, and got into room upon arrival. Going into "battle" now. Later.

    So far so good. Played only one BJ session in same seat for ~5 hours! Went downhill fairly quickly, but walked after doubling buy-in. Far too tired (almost no sleep) and far too much booze to continue.

    Ms Gecko shows up around midnight; that is, if she can fly out of Arkansas late this afternoon. Hope so - room's in her name for weekend!

    Going back into battle soon. More later.

    If for some reason you get face to face with a BTC clerk (Christine is my pick) ask if the 15 day and 30 day passes to come on September 30 are all access for tourists too or if we need local ID.
