    My Trip Report

    Since members seem to like the live TRs over the recap reports, and since I have a lot of solo time on my trip starting tomorrow, I decided to fire up another live trip report. I depart tomorrow afternoon for a four night trip and here's what's planned on the agenda:

    *Four nights in the Aria Skysuites

    *Dinner and maybe a club with a friend from L.A. that is already in Vegas now

    *A social Darwinism experiment to see if I really am dumb enough to go hiking in Death Valley in mid-August (I'm confident that I am that stupid! :wink)
    *Some pool time

    *A lot of time in the sportsbook making wagers for the upcoming NFL season

    *Maybe a night out partying with another friend that gets into town Thursday night. Need to wait and see how tired I am after DV and potentially clubbing one night with the friend from L.A. She is already in town and went to Omnia the other night. Part of me hopes she is worn out from clubbing and we will just have dinner and chill. Sadly, I am that old, lol. But I also want to take advantage of the fact that she can get us into most any club :thumbsup:. We shall see.

    *Lots of good meals. I am planning to try Lago this trip, which I have been looking forward to.

    *Some recovery time at the spa on the final day.

    *And of course, there will be gambling. Members who read my TRs may remember that August last year was my trip where I melted down at Bellagio and lost six figures. Those memories are still in the back of my head, so I am hoping to keep my average bet around $1k or less this trip. Hopefully I hit big early and can play on house money for the rest of the week. But using gambler's logic, part of me also thinks it might be my week, at least at roulette. My southwest boarding pass matches my favorite roulette number (23!). So if I get up early at BJ or Bac, then I will be making some roulette bets

    Follow along if any of that sounds interesting to you. I will try and post plenty of pictures and keep the updates regular. And I love the more interactive TRs, so feel free to ask any questions.
