    After dinner I played a few hours at TI chasing the $1800 RF progressive. Cashed out dead even, had some fun wins and some close calls.

    Monday was spent relaxing a bit and then grabbing my rental from the TI Hertz. Upgrade to a 2019 Range Rover Sport HSE, this thing is NICE! For $312 for 7 days I will consider this a win. I drove to Jerry’s Nugget as I was craving some fair VP and good prime rib. Unfortunately the fair VP ate $300 about as quick as possible, it was rough. The prime rib was the 30oz cut rare and blackened, a bit salty but delicious nonetheless.

    Relaxing currently in Tahoe at Harrahs. Drive from Vegas was easy but long. Having a nice vehicle certainly helped. Smoke is bad an hour south, but still pretty thick here in Tahoe. I have a Lake facing room, but can’t see the lake.

    I assume he went through Tonopah, it's about 8 hours. A few different choices towards Reno re the route. It will be ineresting to see what way he went.

    This is the best $29 I’ve spent in a long time. Delicious, even the ribeye was cooked perfectly which is normally not the case with cuts so thin.

    Gambled heavily today, and finished with another losing day. The only highlight is this. I’m assuming drawing for 3 4oaks in 10 hands is a bit against the odds. I needed it though, it was the only quads I seen all day. In fact the VP has been so bad I switched to slots to slow the bleeding.

    Oh yeah! That might help. It was at American River Cafe in the lower level. For $7 more you could add a salad or soup and a glass of wine or your choice of dessert.

    Decided to head into Reno for a change of scenery. Odd place. I booked a room at Peppermill once I arrived, really like this place. Pics of the room (coffee maker and refrigerator!) and the view out of my room, nice pool view.

    A 5k RF would have been nice...
