    My Trip Report

    So my wife comes home from work one day last week saying one of her co-workers wanted to swap days off around so now she has Fri - Tues off and asks if we should do anything! Naw, let's stay home and hope it doesn't snow, right?? So after some quick pleading with my bosses for a couple of days off, we're off to four nights in a 1 Bdr suite at HGVC Flamingo...Woo Hoo!!!!

    We've got an o-dark-thirty takeoff to land in Vegas about 9am Friday and leave about 9 am on Tues. No big planning for this trip, will probably hit Cosmo hard for a day or two and see what kind of offers we can generate, visit the BeeJay memorial row at Aria as it treated me well as time (and avoid Cleopatra on the way out!), and just generally run amok without any kind of direction for four days. Oh, maybe drink. Looking forward to warmer weather and a nice, unexpected break!!

    I'll try another live TR, really enjoyed doing the last one, but the kids aren't going so it may be kinda boring.

    Gotta love no-notice vacations!

    Nice! Enjoy your trip :)

    Curious what kind of deal you got on the flight out there. Feel like last minute trips are cool minus the airfare from the east coast. It's pricey

    Well 6 whiskey sours in and buffalo is stampeding me. I guess $20 per drink isn't too bad really!
