    My Trip Report

    Alright this is my 3rd trip to Vegas in 18 months. The first one was last January after I won a nice jackpot at my local MGM, the 2nd one in January after I again hit a little jackpot at my local MGM property. The first trip was beneficial as I walked out ahead. The second one not quite so much as I blew $2k rather quickly. We all know the saying that the 3rd time is the charm and I'll set out to see if that's true.

    My plane leaves at 6:00am EST Saturday morning. It's 12:16EST right now and I still have to hit the credit union, shave, get a haircut, pack and oh yea that little thing called work tonight which is going to be a nice 9 or 10hr shift. I'll get off at 1:00am or 2:00am EST and kill time before heading out for the flight.

    I plan to do my absolute best to update this as often as possible with pictures and info. There will be minimal food porn but as long as I stick to my plan lots of slot porn. No real plans set up either except for the high limit pull at the Mirage Saturday at 4:00pm that I'll post info from.

    As far as food goes? I'm 32, a bachelor and going solo to Vegas for my first time. I'm a Fatburger fan so that's on the agenda and I'll probably walk over to Hooters at some point for terrible wings that I just have to have while in Vegas.

    That's all for now!

    Here is a test photo from Tapatalk. I picked up a 20megapixel camera phone so I'll hope for some nice shots. (Yes, that sadly is the only thing I have set aside to pack. One pair of shorts.)

    Best of luck. Solo trips allow you to do what you want, when you want to, and, oh yes, how much you want to.

    Have fun.

    Managed to "sneak" out of work a little bit after midnight. Flight leaves in 5hrs I'll be at the airport in 3hrs.

    One question if somebody knows the answer off hand, I know it's been asked on here but I can't find it. I want to bring a few shooters of alcohol with me and plan to pack them in my personal bag on the plane. Do they have to be in a zip lock bag or if they are just sealed and closed and unopened can I just have them stored in a baggy?

    If I don't get any responses I guess I'll find out in a few hours going through TSA.

    If you are planning on a downtown visit, bring your Spirit boarding pass within 24 hours to the players booth at The D and you should get two $25 match play chips.

    This is acceptable to Luxor in a player's suite. Unreal.

    And this is in the Tower???!!

    Boy they sure let things go to ratshit there.

    The last tower room I had was a Player's Deluxe room and it was really great. Seemed like it might have been renovated in the last year or two. The suite I had at the pyramid had the original 20 year old furnishings and many problems.
