    My Trip Report

    20151006_165418-1.jpg


    Finally finally finally my trip date has arrived! :banana::banana:

    This is my 3rd trip this year. First one was with friends and a winning trip. Second was with wife, who I coincidentally knocked up was an awful losing trip (seriously who loses $100 at 9/6 Jacks at .25 single line level in 1 hr??).

    This trip I am taking my mom, Mama Wanker and now pregnant Mrs. Wanker. The idea for this trip came up after my father passed away in March. While he was ill he had no desire to travel, even though he was able to. I am not sure why but it is what it is. So my mom did not travel much either. So I told her I would take her on Columbus Day weekend. Here we are.

    With the new found bundle of joy coming this may be the last Vegas trip in a while, but who knows? After my first it took me two years to come back. I will try to squeeze a trip in Jan though.

    But enough about the future lets worry about the present.

    Plans for this trip
    Plane- Leaving tonight SWA from MDW probably will try to pre-board Mrs. Wanker due to her needed to use bathroom so much with Mama Wanker. We got C boarding positions and she needs an aisle seat.
    Rental from Alamo - Premium 4 days $121. So about break even for all the taxis we would have used.
    Hotels - Fremont Today and Tomorrow and Cosmo Sunday and Monday
    Bankroll - about 2k with another $500 on reserve. I may did into BR for some food though so 2k for betting seems right.

    1. Gambol (duh) Mostly video poker and slots with craps, UTH, Pai Gow and BJ sprinkled in. Also sports bets on college football and NFL. Casino hop.
    2. Try to play holdem at Binions, never have played there might as well give it a shot.
    3. Le Reve at Wynn on Monday (mom's choice) with post show dinner at Sinatra. Sinatra looking at Osso Buco. Unsure of Sinatra Smash cause I dislike Jack.
    4. Mob Museum and Neon Boneyard (tickets purchased so 100% doing it.
    5. Visit container park for lunch
    6. Outside shot at Atomic Testing Museum (will for sure esp if gambling goes south)
    7. Maybe Burgr
    8. Arrival dinner at In and Out, going to get a Neapolitan shake!
    9. Forum Shops (My pinball HoF :poke:)
    10. Casino hop - Would like to go to Circus Circus to play Carnival games and win little man a price. That and I enjoy carnival games.
    11. Enjoy the time with my mom, this is truly special I can still go with her.


    I am sure there will be more as we go.

    This will be a live TR but for those of you that do not like live, come back for a wrap late next week. It will condense what happened or what I forgot to post live.

    I know know the next 3 hrs of watching kids play basketball will be in tolerable.....

    May our lady of variance be with us.

    Sitting through a food allergy training webinar last period was probably the worst possible thing I could have done.

    I think it's great you are taking your mom. I enjoy taking trips with my mom still and I'm blessed that she is still healthy enough to travel.

    And congats to you and MrsWanker on the new addition. Have fun and win big.

    Hope you have a great trip with your Mom and wife.

    Took my Mom to Vegas a few months after Dad passed away to get her mind off of things. That was 9 years ago, she loves it and looks forward to it every year now.

    She's 79 and loves the Cosmo. She said all the young people make her feel alive again.

    I'm sorry about your dad's passing, my condolences. I hope it's a memorable winning trip for all of you. I'll be following along.
