    My Trip Report

    My first attempt to do a trip report. After following many epic reports on this form, I figured I should do something in return. I know I will not even come close to T-Bone or Packer or any others quality, so this one is called semi semi live. I hope it will turn out well, as we all know how easy it is to lose focus.

    I am from Taiwan and I have work for a company based out of Minneapolis. This vegas trip is after a week's visit to my company HQ. I am now sitting at the airport waiting for my flight, which has a one hour layover in Denver, blah I know.

    I play just about everything I see, from sport bets to video poker, and from craps to blackjack to slot machines. For this trip I also intended to visit downtown a couple of times, with the intention to participate a slot tourney at the Fremont, we will see how that goes.

    Following The great Packer's format, here is the obligatory bank roll shot, I hope you enjoy (if not putting up with my miserable trip reporting skill!)

    Good luck and I hope you need a bigger envelope for your trip home.

    First night's plan is to pull an all nighter, since I won't land until close to midnight. A bit worried that I will run out of gas by early morning, let's see what happens.........

    Boarding in 30 mins.

    Well hello Vegas! Sorry about the blurry pictures, it's kinda hard to take pictures when the plane is about to land, not because I am drunk.......
