    My Trip Report

    Supposed to fly through Denver today but due to the freaking snowstorm, my flight has been cancelled. [​IMG] Trying to see if I can get re-directed via some other way??

    Yup things in Denver are really bad.

    They've started cancelling flights since Tuesday morning. There are thousands of people trapped at the airport and don't expect to get all of those people out until maybe Friday.

    There's also a rip in the roof that they're trying to figure out what to do with.

    And it's still snowing.

    If you have to fly through Denver in the next couple of days I would contact your airline and see about your trip status.

    Never got there. United couldn't re-book us and so I just got a refund. Ended up spending a day at the local casino playing craps. Trying to get another trip planned. [​IMG]

    Of course, I missed my chance to play craps with Mikey, since it sounds like he snuck out there somehow?? Can't wait to hear those details.... :D

    Wow that's too bad you couldn't get out there.

    If it makes you feel any better it was a "100" year storm and we're still feeling the effects from it.

    Hopefully you can reschedule something soon. I was wondering what happened.

    Dang V-Dice...

    Sorry you missed out...

    I swear, it sounds like a whole lotta people from this board were there last week.

    Next time I go, I'm having a shirt made that says 'HURRICANEMIKEY' in huge block letters so people can find me. :D

    If you're gonna wear That shirt, you better get a hat or a pin that says "please stop buying me drinks"!

    I was downtown....

    And I was at Binions for a few hours but didn't see Mikey! ( I looked, belive me!) I figured if I made it out there, Mikey did as well...

    Most of my trip was spent at the Aladdin...

    This is why we need a t-shirt or something we can all wear when we're in Vegas! Maybe not a t-shirt--wouldn't want to wear the same thing everyday ;) A pin might not be too visible....Hmmm. Ideas? I still like Mikey's "Virgin" t-shirt idea though :D

    Oh yeah, the teef! Aren't they kind of hard to drink with, though? I don't want anything interrupting the drinking portion of my Vegas vacation :D
