    My Trip Report

    The time has come to write another TR. I had planned to write a live TR back in February, but mother nature had other plans and ruined my trip. I haven't been to Vegas since April, which is an eternity for me, so I have built up a little excitement. This trip is replacing a planned trip from late May with the sis that was cancelled to deal with some personal matters. No family this trip, but I have a couple friends coming in on Thursday at the Mirage and they have more friends staying at Harrahs. So I leave tomorrow for two days solo lechery and debauchery and two more days with friends and milder debauchery.

    Not much definite set on the agenda yet, but I am staying at the Wynn tower suites. So I expect there will be some pool time. And I am going to check out the Encore spa on Wednesday. I have written in the past that I have been somewhat disappointed in the Wynn spa, but people tell me the Encore side is much better. I hope so. Other probable activities will be a trip out to the Valley of Fire, the Pinball Hall of Fame, cashing some old sports bets, making some new sports bets, drinking at the various Wynn and Mirage lounges, lots of great food, some shopping at either Fashion Show or Forum Shops (I really need another T-Rex nightlight), maybe a detour downtown, and maybe an evening ride on the High Roller. Oh, and probably a hand of blackjack and a few dice thrown here or there :thumbsup:

    I leave tomorrow and will try to post frequent updates. Like my past live TRs, I will try and answer all questions. And I finally added tapatalk to my phone, so expect a lot of photos. Not a huge fan of using my phone to type, so sections of the TR might be more pics and less wordy. We shall see. In any event, I am excited to get back to vegas after being away for a few months. I hope you follow along and enjoy!

    Good luck UK. May your Aces be covered with kings and the dice never find a seven. Look forward to your report.

    UK, hope to see you there! Maybe a little Bacc? Craps? Mornings for me will be on the golf course. Have a fun and successful trip.

    The Caviar Kid rides again! I can't wait already!!! Don't worry about typing too much on the phone, pictures go a long, long way for those who can't scratch the Vegas itch.

    Best of luck, go git 'em!!!!

    You too. I am terrible about checking messages while on a trip, but let me know if you're free. Tuesday and Wednesday may be best for me, but if my friends' friends suck, I might have more free time Thursday and Friday as well

    I leave Saturday morning. No plans to sign up for the Super Contest. It has never interested me because I know my chances of winning are near zero and I have enough going on during the NFL season with my fantasy league, season prop bets and weekly line bets. Adding the Super Contest to my list would just feel like a chore on top of everything else I have going on during the season
