    My Trip Report

    [​IMG]
    Hello everyone! It has been a long time since the last trip to Las Vegas. Ten long weeks! Suppose to leave at 8:00am Thursday the 19th to get there in time for the basketball games of March Madness. Going to try to do another live TR. I keep thinking of Tbone3336’S TR and I know I just can’t live up to it. As I said, it is not a TR contest at all and I learned so much from my new friend Tbone! Thank you Tbone3336! So I will give it a try. I will be taking many pictures for you all along with the usual cash and chip porn. I was thinking of no TR this time because they are always pretty much the same. But I realize there are new VMB ers all the time who have never experienced Las Vegas through my eyes-camera so I will go ahead with it. As you will read below, I am hosting 9-12 friends so it might be hard to do a live TR but I will do my best.

    Unfortunately, a close young (54) family member passed away suddenly from a brain hemorrhage (stroke) this last Saturday and the coroner is holding up the burial (In the Jewish faith you should be buried within 48 hours) with an unnecessary autopsy the state needs to do. Therefore, the funeral was supposed to be on Tuesday then Wednesday now Thursday. So, if indeed it is on Thursday I will be in Las Vegas late that night. It could be next week for all we know at this point. Bottom line, the Family is in agony waiting for the coroner to release the body. Just terrible. On top of that, I woke up with a cold!

    On a lighter note, this is the 12th year in a row I have done this trip. It is a once a year boys trip. No wives, no girlfriends and no reality situations. Yes, I am getting my friends and family out of reality for a few days. Most years there have been 10-20 of us congregating in the VIP MM party at either the Wynn, Cosmo and even one year we did GEEZERS. Always a great time no matter where we stay. I usually have my five cousins along with 12-15 close friends who have known each other since the age of five or so. The guys range in age from a 21 (One guy) to 58 but most late 40s. This year it turns out only about 10 of us will be going which is fine. We always do the VIP viewing party Thursday-Sunday with lots of drinking and gambling. Most will leave Monday.
    Six out of ten of us are 1-3 hour a day gamblers with a 200 to 600 avg. The other four will be at a 1500 to 4000 avg. My BR will be my CL (Which I rarely tap into) and 35k ish front money. I am prepared to lose 30k. Don’t want to but prepared as I’m up almost that for the year (2 trips). I hope to be 3-0 for the year after this trip. I should end up with 25k to 30k in Theo. Once I hit that, I am done. Give or take. My total retail bill at the end should be 12k or so including eight rounds of golf at 500 each.

    I act as the Casino Host for them all and get all the rooms, VIP party tickets for the 4 days, show tickets, set up all dinners, set up golf and just about everything else. I enjoy that. We will be doing dinner at SW (of course) and Sinatra. The other nights are free nights. Golfing at Wynn twice, Shadow Creek and maybe, just maybe, a round at Bali High before we catch a plane home. I will be checking into Aria for one night so we can play Shadow but not staying there. Just check in and leave. Ok, maybe play for an hour or so at Aria then go back home to the Wynn.

    Planning to hit the pool (Maybe), spa every day, walk across the street to the mall to get my watch cleaned (No folex this trip), maybe walk to Venetian to eat at Delmonico’s one night but that’s about it. I have wanted to go buy a F-you gnome and will try this trip. Where is it again? I forgot. Being from the west coast I want to try shake shack but most likely have time. Going to try to make a VMB meet on Sunday I think, meet up with UCLAgirl and of course party with my friends pleepleus and Stevie D who are invited to join us throughout the whole weekend. Plee and I have some Cleo business to tend to! Stevie and I will pound the craps table. Wish my fellow Degens pphold, nate, Vegaschic, PayTriple, wanker, broncofn, firstkill, Tbone3336, chess, and rocky were coming up but we will all get together next time.

    I’m sure I forgot something and will add it as I go. Thanks for following and enjoy the ride! As I said, I live vicariously through your TR’s and hope you can live vicariously through mine. Wish me luck!

    Sorry to hear of your family's loss.... sincerely..

    I am glad, selfishly, that you will be doing a report to help get me through these last 10 days. I agree that TBone has laid down the gauntlet for us all. :nworthy: But I look at it as an opportunity to do better next time than compare our own lack of dedication to his.. :)

    I'll be at the games on Friday (Session 1 and 2) at Key in Seattle - so if you need a spinkler to go off or some distraction to keep the spread down.. I'm your man! Just need to get my hands on a cucumber and TimSpeed's pajamas.

    Good luck!

    Condolences Packers. Thanks for taking the time to write this TR. 54 is pretty young and to go out on a stroke is really horrible. (Another reason to routine visit Drs. to get bp checked) Hoping for a 3-0 TR and some good times with your family/friends!

    Hey Packer, looking forward to your report. Sorry about your loss, it's an unfortunate example of how unpredictable life can be. Hope you go 3-0, and that your back holds up!

    Sorry for your loss Packer, good luck! I had the same idea for the money pic except 'MMILV' but knew those pics are your trademark. Good luck finding a couple heaters this weekend.

    Looking forward to this trip report Packer. I will be hanging around the Wynn mostly while I am there so maybe I will run into you, I will definitely say hey. Hope you crush it this weekend and have a great time with your friends.

    Sorry for you and your families loss...Sometimes I wonder if the coroners realize that the delays that happen on their end cause a lot of anguish for the familiy
