    My Trip Report

    Hello everyone! Tomorrow I will be on my way to vegas for a quick 2 and half day trip. I got a really good deal on southwest (about 210 total) and couldn't resist. I originally thought I would only have about 1k and no car. (normally take 3k and have a rental). I found a really good deal on a rental (13 a day), so I will have a car.

    Im gonna attempt a different type of vegas trip than I am used too. I am mainly going to chill by the pool, see a few shows and probably a few poker tournaments. I normally am a bj, craps and poker player but I dont quite have the bankroll so I want to make my money stretch.

    I am also going solo which I did half the time.

    I will post pics tomorrow when I start my journey. If anyone wants to have a beer with me just holler!!

    Have a great trip. Perhaps you can parlay into your normal levels and win big!
