    My Trip Report

    Here's the quick pre-report, as my wife (Megan) and I (Trevor) will be leaving soon to visit our favorite place on earth. Megan and I used to frequent LV 2-3x per year before we had our first baby last year... I've been back myself a few times since for work conferences, but she hasn't been there in a few years now at all. So this is our first time back together since early 2013. We just found out she's pregnant again, so this is probably going to be the last trip we take together for a few more years too :)

    Quick background - Megan:
    - 30ish
    - stay-at-home mom
    - gambles small stakes slots and table games - $5/$10 craps/blackjack or penny slots with themes she likes (Lord of the Rings, Hangover, Sex and the City, Monopoly, etc)
    - gambling budget: $1,000

    Quick background - Trevor:
    - 35ish
    - business owner
    - gambles slightly higher stakes at craps/blackjack (usually green chips, sometimes into black chips)
    - will focus on 2/5 and 5/10 no limit holdem and some pot limit omaha games in the poker rooms at Aria and Bellagio this trip
    - gambling budget: $10,000

    Trip plan:
    - Hotel: Cosmopolitan - Terrance Studio Fountain View. It's our first time staying at Cosmo, although we have enjoyed eating and playing there in the past. Wife's idea and I wasn't going to say no, even though I could get comped rooms at any CET and most MLife (go figure!) :)
    - Flight: first class on Delta - with wifi! love the long flights that have wifi now... helps a ton
    - Gamblin: we'll play a little together during the days, have dinner and see a show at night, then she'll typically call it a night - she's an early person, and I'm a late person. after she's asleep, I'll hit a poker room til the sun comes up!
    - Shows: we have tix to see Zarkana, MJ One, and Absinthe while in town... all new shows for both of us
    - Eats: reservations for Top of the World (has sentimental value to us, as we got engaged there) and Sinatra... hoping to find some new favorites on this trip as well.

    Planning on photo-documenting as much as possible... depending how the wifi is in Cosmo it may be a live TR or may be all regurgitated the day after I get back. Stay tuned...

    Periscope worked great for me. Can vouch it's at least fast enough for that.
