    My Trip Report

    So, yeah, I'm back in Vegas. I was pretty gunshy after last trip when I lost my ASS. It was the worst trip in 49 outings, and I lost 4 times my worst up to that point.

    However... long story short, I did in fact come out again, but for various reasons, I won't be blogging it live.

    Some tidbits and goodies will be served though. It's kind of like the Maple Leaf Lounge at the airport where yeah, there is some food, but you can't make a meal out of it any which way.

    The most cool part of it is that I finally broke the 19 year dollar royal drought last night! At the Smug Nugget!!!

    I'm pretty fucking chuffed about it.

    I set up a page to host the trip, but I don't plan to write it up live this time, but will do so after its over. It will be interesting to see if readership drops - I suspect people really like the live element, but with my attendance required at GrommetCon 2014 here in Vegas, I won't have time to do a proper job of live blogging.

    Here's the main page.

    Nice going Flusher!:thumbsup:
    Jeez, 19 years. I was whining about a 3 year drought until Feb 2014 and I thought that was a long time.

    Congrats nothing sweeter than a W2G! I am jealous you are back in Vegas. Have a great time and get a big juicy Steak somewhere to celebrate. I vote for Ruth's Chris Steakhouse at Harrahs.

    Congratulations on the BIG win. Taking the Smug Nugget down is just icing on the cake! :beer:

    Looking forward to reading the blog when it becomes available. If you post a day summary at a time, it will be the same as live. Hope you do not have too much work/conference time to take up your precious Vegas time.

    I know you have another Royal or Two in ya this week!!!

    as funny as the day to day reports are, i am guessing that with a few days to think about it, the recap report might be funnier than the numbers on a set of honda grommet calipers.

    I was wondering when the next trip would be. Glad to hear this trip started with a bang. I'm hoping to see more vp wins in the next few days.

    Boo!

    Yeah!

    Sweet.

    Boo again! If you do, release it in daily chapters please. My gut can only take so much at one reading.

    Um...Yes, yes we do.

    I think live is a bit overrated myself. I would rather have good quality daily updates over live, released in installments of course. Beeejay and Flusher are some of the few than can do both really well.

    Look forward to this TR, live or not.

    Thanks all, hot off the presses, the comp system at the Four Queens is changing next month to a swipe system like they have at Binions.

    So will they still need hosts at the Queens?....

    We are not getting the comps we should from our last play and our play today and I'm pissed about it.

    So pissed that I took my $40 freeplay and hit a $600 quad on it and walked out the door.
