    My Trip Report

    This is my first attempt at a trip report. I hope to update it whilst I'm there but might end up writing it when I get back. Can't promise it will be that exciting but I will do my best!

    At the airport, just waiting for the flight. And sorry guys, I know it's breakfast time but this is my last chance for a proper pint :)

    All that stands between me and Vegas now is the Atlantic. See you in about 11 hours!

    Malted barley, yeast, water........liquid pancakes. Never read a good trip report that started off with a salad, so I hope there’s more to come!

    Have a brilliant trip.

    We spent six weeks at Excalibur in 2011 and survived. Looking forward to seeing what has changed since then.

    Well, we made it. We seem to be using up all our luck too soon as the immigration hall at McCarran was literally empty. We were through in about 10 minutes!

    On to the car rental place to pick up the motor. We may book a budget hotel, but I like a nice car. It's pretty swish.

    We got checked in, there was a line and a half, but it only took about 20 mins. Not too bad.

    View from the room is pretty decent.

    Going to get a bite to eat, then maybe use my freeplay. But it won't be a late one tonight, that's for sure.

    So after a light breakfast ...

    20180506_084147.jpg

    ...we took a trip to Walmart to pick up a few supplies. Just the essentials - beer, crisps and oreos.

    Then it was back to the hotel. We're still feeling the jetlag, so didn't get up to much. Played a few slots, managed to turn $75 freeplay into $25 real money, bit disapointing. Then headed over to Luxor to play a few more and stopped off in Public House to refuel. Vanilla Porter is pretty decent. For some reason the phot won't upload.

    Had something to eat at the Excal food court. Pick up stix. .. not recommended. Not even close to panda express.

    Gambled a bit more, no big wins, this was the highlight

    20180506_194357.jpg

    Ended up about 100 buck ahead, which on a $100/day bankroll isn't too bad.

    Glad you made it safely to Vegas. Thanks for the great picture of your view from your room. We'll be at Excalibur in August, so I'll be looking at your posts for pics and comments about
    Excalibur.

    Sorry mate I forgot to take pics before we moved all our stuff in. But here's a couple. It's not as dark as that, the light rom the window ws super bright and confused the camera. Or something.

    So the room is more or less like any other, not hugely different to mgm or nyny or Monte Carlo. Quite a lot of room. I like that there is plenty of storage, as we're here for a while it' nice not to have to live out of a suitcase.

    The shower is not the best, I mean it works fine, but it' just a fixed shower head with no adjustment. Temperature and pressure is Ok though.
