    My Trip Report

    Let me start off by saying, there are already some great reports started for this weekend and I will be following along with everyone else. So, if you are expecting huge parties or massive chip porn, you might want to keep following everyone else. :peace:

    I am going to do my best to keep this one as live as possible but if anyone has read my previous ones, I tend to die off just about dark and reappear sometime the next morning or even a couple days later.

    I completely enjoy all the reports on here and it is the first section I go to …. many continue to impress me as I know how hard it is to keep up .. Packer, BeeJay, Broncofn, pphold, sinindustry, JDVegas, UK, MsFuri, and I can go on and on … with that noted, I am not the most creative guy but I do plagiarize well, so you may see me take certain liberties with some of the great TR styles (if there is such a thing).

    This is a solo trip and the first weekend trip I have taken in years. I have missed the weekend vibe but have enjoyed the slower pace of the mid-week trips. I guess I will find out after this trip if I go back to mid-week or try more weekend.

    I don’t really have much planned and while it is a little weird for me, I am looking forward to it.

    Leaving this morning (at the SkyLounge now). Arrive in Vegas at about 11am. If anyone needs a ride, I am happy to have the car make a detour.
    Return on Monday at 4pm

    Looks like I got bumped from the SkyLoft last night which isn’t a surprise, as I am not that big of player and this is a weekend and UFC event. My host always tries and for the most part I get what I requested. So I will be in a Penthouse City View suite. I am told they are nice and pretty big but I have not stayed in on yet.

    I have a great ticket to the UFC 189 fight, however going alone just doesn’t sound like fun. I can also get more Freeplay if I don’t use it. I will have to make that decision today.

    A quick list of things I want to do:

    1. In-and-Out Burger - will be hitting this from the airport to the hotel
    2. VP - at least one hand pay if not more
    3. Freeplay – turn this into actual cash and not just blow through it
    4. LIR - hit a 4OAK or straight flush (yes, I know this is a long shot but I can dream)
    5. REVIV - use this if needed and not suffer through a day being hungover
    6. Downtown – haven’t been in some time – would be Friday night.
    7. Aria Spa – This is a longshot but thinking about it
    8. Poker – play some live poker. Been awhile but I do miss it.
    9. Meeting New People – I am open to meeting up with any of the VMBer’s if there is time.


    As I did on my last TR, I will just start this one off with the following picture:

    You are just too smart for me. It does start with a D but can stand for many different things depending on the day. So far so good today.
