    My Trip Report

    Going to attempt to do this semi-live - provided the alcohol doesn't render my memory useless.

    Flying out at 7:45 tomorrow morning from BWI, landing around 10:15 Vegas time. Leaving Sunday morning around the same time... losing an hour thanks to daylight savings time. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Flying on Spirit for the first time Friday morning... which could be interesting (but hopefully isn't)

    Giving Park MGM a try.

    First trip back to Vegas in almost 2 years... used to go annually but had to take 2017 off when we moved from NYC to DC and took last year off because we had a 2nd kid. Can't wait to get back on the saddle.

    Lots of blackjack and booze. Not expecting much food porn I'm afraid, but we'll see where things go.

    Giddiup.

    I liked the old Monte Carlo, so keep us posted. I am curious how many Craps tables are at the new Park MGM and the table limits?
     
    This will be first Vegas trip in nearly 2 years

    Fuck it's early.

    Getting ready to grab an Uber over to Union Station for the 20 minute Amtrak ride from DC to BWI. Probably could have taken the next train but memories of my mom always being late to everything has created a complex where I now need to be wayyyyy too early to everything. Drives my wife crazy but she's not coming on this one so whatever.

    Friend from SF got in late last night. Other friend is a local. So just waiting for me to make the cross country voyage to the Promised Land.

    Vegas, Baby.

    The lights are on but nobody's home (does that count as a political post?)

    The combined efforts of Uber and Lyft must have read my post about how running late stresses me the F out.

    Alas... made it with a few minutes to spare.

    Amtrak to BWI and shuttle bus from train station to the terminal was crazy simple. Have only flown out of DCA or occasionally Dulles since moving to DC, but this was so smooth I might have to add it on to the list - easier than getting to IAD that's for sure.

    Getting ready to board for my first Spirit experience. All good so far. Big Front Seat FTW.

    Next stop, Vegas.

    Checked in to Park MGM.

    Kiosks were incredibly simple and easy. Not sure what the issues were. Maybe they've solved them.

    Room is nice. Overlooking TMobile, which, ok whatever. Don't plan on spending much time in the room so whatever.

    Showering up and hitting Nine Fine Irishmen to cash in a myvegas reward for lunch

    Have great trip back! Always fun to see what's new. The thought of a 47 hour trip sounds so exhausting. Hope you have lots of adrenaline and pack lots in.
