    So...last time I wrote a TR on here I somehow ended up out in Vegas with a bunch of Brits but my best night was with a few VMB regs...either way it was for fun. The time before, I got married.

    This trip, however, is slightly different. There will be no Brits with me, I'm on my own. And although I'll be out there at the same time as those crazy VMB regs, I won't be partying. I'm out here to work.

    I've been hired to provide freelance media services at the World Series of Poker, with my contract being between May 26 and July 5. So most of my days will be spent actually working. In Vegas. My wife thinks I've gone insane, but I am being very well compensated and couldn't turn the contract down.

    The pre-TR will be spent explaining how (without going into too much detail) I got the job, along with the fun I've had booking flights/hotels/car hire etc, so if you have any questions, fire away!

    Have fun and don't work too hard.

    We ar currently starting week 7 of an 8 week trip. It has flown by so far. I don't think we will want to go home when the time comes.
     
    First trip of 2017.

    It's definitely going to be interesting. I haven't been away from my wife since we married for longer than a week so 6 weeks is going to be fun!


    I'll definitely try dependent on my shifts, can't miss this! Maybe this time my sober ass should keep the BAC meter? :)


    As BeeeJay can definitely confirm - mine's a water. I'm teetotal but always up for a night out!

    Wow, impressive! I'd love to do a 6 month trip - but not a chance in hell my wife would be up for it :(

    Just a thought - does anybody know how much hassle it is to get a safety deposit box at a hotel-casino you are not lodging at?

    Might be better if someone sober held them. I know we will be at margaritaville craps at 8pm on Thursday, May 28th so if you can make that please do!

    Sweet! Sadly, I would probably accept the contract for free, just for the Hall Pass from my wife, to be in Vegas for 6 weeks...lol

    Flights should be booked within the next 24hrs. Leave Dublin on May 25th and return on July 7th.

    Excitement levels are getting slightly higher...I need to start practising the video poker again!

    Flights are booked.
    Hotels are booked.
    Travel Insurance is booked.

    All I need now is money and I'm good to go. This is going to be the longest 19 days ever.
