    My Trip Report

    My 4 day trip started at Fiesta Henderson for 2 days and finished up at Treasure Island. Fiesta was like a motel 6. I was on the 4th floor and had a view of a cement wall. Casino has good VP and I like the cafe and buffet. The ACG comes in handy for this place.

    Went over to Sunset Station to see Mikey. He was on a table with no patrons so we got to shoot the breeze a little. Waited for Mikey to deal at a Pai Gow Table and my wife and I won a few bucks combined. Always a pleasure to sit at Mikey's table, especially if we win.

    We checked out Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. Nice place to visit but wouldn't want to live there.

    We went to Red Rock Casino. Beautiful place. Visited Suncoast and Rampart Casino while we were out there. Wife and I both won 10 dollar match plays at Rampart. :wiggle: Pretty decent buffet at Rampart also. Thanks ACG.

    Good food all around. Ate at Southcoast, Orleans, Rampart, Sam's Town, Fiesta Henderson, and Arizona Charlies Boulder.

    No royal flushes but plenty of 4 of a kinds to keep us in the game. Won $50 on a quarter slot at Treasure Island. Gave it back on my first attempt at a $5 slot at the orleans. 10 single pulls, not 1 win. $50 gone in 2 minutes. :vomit:

    I liked staying at Treasure Island. Got the deal that upgraded to a strip view. Real nice room. Hope you can view these pics.

    Hey Jim...

    Nice pics. It was great to see you guys again--glad you could win a few bucks at my table. (Shoulda been there last night, I gave away 2 four-of-a-kinds and a straight flush all within 45 minutes. Nobody wanted me to leave the table!)

    I just drove out to Hoover dam this week for the first time in about a year and a half. Looks like the lake is down another 20 feet or so. We need several years of monster blizzards in Utah and Colorado to fill that sucker back up, it appears.

    When is the next trip?

    Mikey

    Thanks for the TR Jim. Red Rock Casino is very nice, but their VP sucks.

    Mikey, hope to get back in November for our 30th anniversary.
    Don, I know the VP blows at Red Rock. Wished I could have been there earlier for your twin killing at Arizona Charlie's.

    Thanks for the TR Jim. I have always had good luck at Video Poker at TI. I can usually take my $20 and play for a few hours on that while getting my free drinks at the Breeze Bar..always tipping mind you ;)

    Nice pics, it looks like they have changed out the drapes and the bedspreads at TI, I like the look.
