    My Trip Report

    Well just got back last night from LV. We stayed at CC. I will say it was ok.Old but had 3 dollar blackjack so it made up for it. Wife and I walked to Mirage.First mistake.You all were right looked ALOT closer. After that wife and I got 3 day passes for the bus. We went and checked out most of the casinos.Didnt hit the Q,wynn,MB or luxor. But got the rest on the strip.Did these over a few days. I liked ceasers the most.
    Caught most of the free shows. Saw the fountains from the effel tower and then from ground level. Very cool to see. Caught the volcano from the effel tower the walked to see TI show. Took the ride up to Fredmont and that was cool. Couldnt see it all due to rain.Overall we had a great time.But the next time we will stay closer to the center of the strip and pay a little more. We also agreeded that 6 nights was to much.Next trip looking at 3-4 days.
    Was nice wife played blackjack with me and we broke even maybe a little profit.She usually likes the slots but she had a blast at the blackjack table.

    Details we need more details. :beer:
    Did you gamble, win, lose, drink, pass out????:thumbsup:

    Our first few trips were 5-6 days. We then cut back to 4 and now have figured out that 4 days (3 nights) is just right.
    Arrive early that first day so its a full day. This works great provided no shows are schedule and this is primarily when we are only gambling, drinking and walking around (not necessarily in that order).

    If we schedule shows or off strip activity then maybe schedule 4 nights.

    Not really many details. Gambling we broke even.But our rule is to leave when were up. We could have done better than we did but we always left the tables to the plus. Slots are the same if we double up we cash out and move on. Not the big excitement but rather leave a winner if we can.

    Neither my wife and I are big drinkers. Yes we drank(big chill,beers and coolers) but wasn't a need. We always stop before we get to carried away.

    Being our first trip out we didn't catch and shows. Wanted to but just not the time. Did see the fountains ( from effel tower and ground) Volcano from the effel and TI show.

    We are planning on going back and will see more then.
