    My Trip Report

    You know those super last-minute trips where you just throw a few clean clothes into a bag and jet off to the unexpected?

    Yeah, this isn’t one of them. :p


    This trip has been 11 months in planning, has been supported by hours and hours of Vegas Vlogs on YouTube, been investigated via multiple online sites such as Yelp, Facebook, VMB, has been brought into every conversation possible with my family and colleagues, plus it has at least 3 spreadsheets relating to it…

    PLUS with the whole Thomas Cook debacle, it nearly meant I wasn’t going at all! So, it think it’s fair to say, I CAN’T BLOODY WAIT!!!! :faint:

    Some of you may have followed one of my TR’s previously, if so, Hiiiiii! :wave:And I hope this one meets your expectations. For anyone new – Hello! Here’s a little run down of what to expect;

    • 28 days in Vegas across the following hotels;
    Mirage – Part paid/part comp
    Cosmo – All comp! And no Resort fees thanks to a lovely host.
    Park MGM – Part paid/part comp
    Planet Hollywood – All comp (no resort fees with diamond card)
    Flamingo – All comp (no resort fees with diamond card)
    Luxor – All comp (apart from resort fees)
    Planet Hollywood (round 2!) – All but one-night comped – reduced fee but think there’s some boxing in town?

    • Slots and VP! (Unless someone persuades me to add another game into my repertoire, however last time, I tried Craps, and I’ve never lost a $100 so quickly…..)

    • Kitties! (Well, maybe a pic of my kitty and kitty related slots… I dunno..…. any & all kitty related things are welcome)

    • Food – lots of food. (Again, there’s a spreadsheet for this so please let me know if anyone wants more info haha)

    • A Royal or 2 or 3 in VP? :haha: (hahahahahahahah …….. I wish)

    • Meet and greets with lots of Vegas types! – I support a PlayStudios affiliated social media group, so I am meeting up with some MyVegas staff and other admin’s/members, plus the long-awaited Meet & Slot pull in Cosmo, and I also have some other amazing VMB people to meet! Yay!

    • Some pool time, some late nights, some early nights, some bars, some geeks at a gaming convention, a hire car, road trips, and probably some more things but I doubt you are still reading now because this is boring lalalalalalala lets test this, who wants a free kitten? :hmmm:

    Well, that’s what I hope you can expect anyway, my 1st TR tapered off into a drunken silence and my 2nd TR had lots of cat related drama and some housekeeping theft problems so 3rd time lucky? Maybe? Let’s keep those fingers crossed and any other good luck ritual’s you crazy degens have!
    I did however get my first (and so far last) ever Royal in my last trip so I can’t complain!

    Some parts of this TR will be live – some semi live due to alcohol and/or naps. :drunk:

    So what’s next? Later, at 4am we drive for 4 hours to the Airport, to check in 3 hours before flight, to fly for 11 hours – and then Vegas!!! First stop Mirage......hope I can get some sleep on the plane!

    Oh yeah almost forgot – I will be bringing the usual +1 of mine, some of you know him as Hugh, that’s not his name, but he does answer to it now. (thanks @bubbakitty)

    Here we go!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Will be following along. I admire your stamina. After 28 days I'd have to enroll into a 12 step program before returning home! Enjoy!!

    Wow. 4 hr drive to airport. Wait 3 hrs. Then endure an 11 hr plane ride. I admire your stamina.

    I get all fussy when I take my 5 hr flight after driving to the airport for 35 minutes. I'll remember what you go through next time I take my trip. :thumbsup:

    But I sincerely wish you a Great, Wonderful, and Fun filled trip filled with handpays, Royals, great friends, old and new, adventurous cocktails that get you all giddy, giggly, bright eyed and bushy tailed!

    Have a Great Time....after all you went through this past 11 months, you certainly deserve it! :wave::beer:

    Not sure how you do 28 days. I thought my week long trip would get me in trouble. I wont make your M&S pull as i will be in town a few days later. But maybe i will see you runing around Mid strip the weekend of Oct 17 - 20. Good luck and win big

    That sounds like an amazing trip! Even though I could never do 28 days, but I'll be following along. :popcorn:
    And YES I want a free kitten!! :wave:

    FYI - I have never had one of those last minute throw things in a bag trips. Would love to though!

    No room for a free kitty, but lots of time to enjoy your trip report. 28 days should give you lots of time to enjoy Vegas. Have fun and good luck.
