    Safe travels!! We are flying out tonight, got A60 and B1 boarding passes. I am at work right now and am DYING.

    Stayed at Harrah's last time we visited, had a great time. I'm sure you will do the same! :beer:

    So now’s probably not the best time to bring up the fact that I am in the midst of my worst streak of luck EVER…:grrr:

    It’s all good though, I’m due (famous last words:rolleyes2:).

    Hope to see you soon.

    This time we are at Bally's but will be visiting Harrah's at some point I'm sure, so I'll watch for the WVU cap. And 30's IS younger to us!!

    OT: Can't wait for WVU and the Horns to play football this year!!

    Just a little confused. TSA does security checks. Are you a frequent flyer type that gets to skip the normal line?

    Good luck on the trip.:thumbsup:

    Born and Bred longhorn fan here! You will LOVE visiting Austin! Great campus atmosphere during football weekends! If you haven't already made reservations for your hotel, you better do it quick. Tickets will be going on sale soon (student ticket lottery is this monday i think) and its gonna be a zoo.

    Welcome to the Big 12 and good luck to your team this year (except when you visit 40 acres!)

    Hook'em!
