Ok, this is my third time attempting a Live TR. The first one never got off the ground, the second I updated for a day or two and then alcohol, excitement and gambling caught up with me and I forgot. This trip is far less ambitious (last time we had the marathon + a bunch of shows and events planned) so I should be able to set aside a moment from time to time to update the TR. Lord knows the last few months I've been rabidly reading all the TR's I could in anticipation for my own trip, so I figure its time to return the favor. I hope to start by updating a few times today as we do last minute prepping so hopefully that gets me in the habit. Below is an overview of our trip: Feb 15 - 22 Fly out Feb 15 at 4:15 on Allegiant - never flown Allegiant, we normally do Southwest, but as fares have become less competitive in CMH, and we don't get rows to ourselves as often (my wife and I), we decided to use Allegiant and opt for the Giant seats. My wife and I aren't exacly big, but I'm broad shouldered and prefer not to be cramped on the flight. Anyway, flight lands in LAS (hopefully) at 5:15, and Presidential will be there to pick us up. Feb 15-17 - 2 nights comped at Flamingo in "Go" Room + Free Play + $150,000 VP tourney (first VP tourney for me) Feb 18 -22 - 5 nights comped at Palazzo + Free Play + $50,000 slot tourney (wife will be playing on my behalf) I discovered last night I'll be in Vegas the same time as a former colleague for 2 nights. Additionally we have a friend coming into Vegas Wed morning, and then her husband arrives Thursday. They're staying at Mirage, so we'll meet up with them a few times. Definite plans: Lotus lunch $250 free play at Cosmo (special offer) Mini "slot golf" event with friends Meet ex-colleague for craps at PH (discovered we'd be in Vegas at the same time last night) A lot of craps (real and 'fuzzy') A lot of sports bets A lot of VP A lot of slots (wife) A lot of drinking A lot of winning??? A lot of fun!!!! Other than that, we're completely open. Hope to update more today.
