    My Trip Report

    First one... I know it's impossible to meet the quality of some of the other TRs, but I'll do what I can! Of course the originating flight was from Chicago, so weather was a factor. Arrived 42 minutes late, but alas, I'm in my seat. Over wing Emergency row. Extra leg room.

    Unfortunately, I will be working for the flying part of my trip, but I'll spare you the boring details.

    I'm new to uploading images, so hopefully it works. If not, I'll add researching how to properly include images to my in flight to do list.

    Getting the party started with a little drink. Oh, and bringing a little bit of the South with me (Tea from Jim'n Nick's BBQ).

    Yes. So far it seems easy enough to use. I didn't have to do anything special to get the images in there. Just east of Albuquerque, there were some beautiful snow-capped mountains. I wasn't able to get a picture, but I did get one of some off in the distance -- looking north, so I'll post it from Tapatalk.

    I've forgotten how nice this exit row is. All the extra leg room is super nice.

    Feeling like I'm never going to get there. I know this plane can go faster!

    On a positive note... I have a nice view from my window seat. Hello, Grand Canyon National Park.

    Comped room in Palace Tower. Pool view. Tried asking nicely for an upgrade to Augustus Tower room with Fountain View. No go. Oh well. This is closer to the self parking garage.

    Got my VIP access card and haven't needed it yet. Walked right up to the check in desk.

    Time for a snack and to visit some slots.

    Good luck!
    Is the VIP access card some kind of Visa perk?
    Can't wait to see the Big wins!

    Not slot porn, but I see more renovations at Le Central @ Paris. I guess they thought the chandelier wasn't big enough?

    So this game is pretty fun. When I get back to WiFi, I'll upload video.

    My best win so far, but I quickly gave it all back to Paris. [​IMG]

    Dinner time at Mon Ami Gabi. Food porn coming up.

    So after giving the casino all the money I alloted for yesterday, I'm going to try again today.

    The bed sleeps terrible and I hate down pillows because they smash completely flat, so I tossed and turned, then finally got out of bed around 5am. Somewhere close there was an alarm that repeatedly went off. It started well before I got out of bed.

    At least we got a peek of the beginnings of a nice sunrise on this brisk 45° morning.

    Hoping for better luck today!

    Wishing you better luck today!! Sucks that you didn't sleep well, hopefully tonight will be better. You should be able to at least request different pillows.

    Any big plans for today?
