    My Trip Report

    Might is back...ok,ok, mightyWabbit is back....and this time hopefully successfully updating this forum with a semi-degenerate-solo-semi-live-TR...

    I will be trying to post thoughts, notes and trivia about my trip everytime I get wifi, as well as a complete day report.. I have tried to do so in July, wasn't on my own though at the time..

    I have been reading all of your TRs and I feel that I have to contribute, even if this helps you people get over the waiting time until next trip.. thats what your reports help me with.. surviving..

    Today, 27 hours before leaving home, I was supposed to work...well I wont be doing this...you sometimes have to reap the benefits of being your own boss...

    I have been going to LV since 1995, I am 36, dad and husband and just addicted to LV.. Have been staying mainly in MGM Prop. but have done my fair share of hotel hopping, ranging from sams town to skylofts..

    This time I will be flying BA from switzerland to london and from lhr to las.. Got a great offer so this time it will be first class.. Many may argue, that flying the old first on BA is not worth the money, but.....:

    1) nice lounge in LHR (pre drinking)
    2) by-pass security lines
    3) drink on the plane
    4) be one of the first to get off
    so 5) be one of the first to go through immigration
    6,7,8) its just so much nicer than eco...in german its called the wooden(seat)-class...i think its one of the best names for eco...


    My host was insisting sending a limo, the driver will only be getting me to rentals though as I have booked a luxury class at AVIS using my avios..

    Then off to MGM, normal room, comped five nights...

    18th and 19th are CE days, the rest is for gambling, drinking, gambling, drinking and maybe some outlet shopping for those that had to stay behind... well, instead of vegas my wife and girl (28 Mths) are spending two weeks in southern spain..poor neglected them....

    I will be (trying) doing a lot of photo shooting, less touristy, more "nice"artisty" pics....(a way to make my BR last longer)...so if i really get around to doing so, expect some pics...

    Since I will be motorized and solo i tought a challenge a day coming from the forum would be something original...I will be picking one of your (hopefully numerous suggestions) and then trying to complete the task..(photo backed)...

    That should hopefully make the TR more interesting and different than other (great) reports.....

    so...any suggestions for the trip?

    challenges? thoughts, ideas?

    greetings, mightywabbit
