    My Trip Report

    Isn't that the best email?

    Yep, just received mine to check in for my flight to Vegas that is scheduled to depart for Vegas in 23 hours and 58 minutes.

    It is a short trip for me. As my countdown notes, I am coming in for Michael McDonald at the Venetian this Saturday but my fabulous host also booked me for an offer for free play and a significant voucher to purchase a watch from the watch store in Wynn. I will be collecting free play from Palace Station, Gold Coast and CET while giving them a little play. Beyond MM, spa treatments, VP and slots I don't have a lot planned. Meals though include Sinatra Friday night.

    If folks are game I may host a mini meal member meet at the Cornerstone Happy Hour at Gold Coast on Saturday. I have a 150 food comp to use and as I shared from my previous reports that buys a lot of appetizers and could feed a mini army.

    I won't do my normal detailed report but I do hope to send pics of wins!!

    Sharing my nail pic. Was able to get a mani/pedi this evening and looked like a kooky person I am sure taking a pic of my nails on the subway.

    And thanks for the good wishes Tring!

    On a different note, the joke is on me.

    I normally plan things far in advance but just tried to book my other offers for this weekend.

    Palace Station gift card promo (and also redeeming my monthly free play)?No problem.

    CET special free play offer? No problem.

    Gold Goast monthly free play and food credit offer? Sold out. A bunch of bull riders apparently booked a monthlong stay there.

    Okay, so I ask about the Orleans. Comped offer not available but I can get a discounted room. I was nice but was thinking to myself that this is getting pretty funny.

    It is 250 in free play and 150 in food credit. That's a decent amount but not sure I would trek to Sam's Town sans car for it. But I ask anyway. And strike three. They can offer a discounted rate.

    I am annoyed at myself for waiting so late to book this offer.

    But, still game to do a mini meet, first drink on me, at Wynn Friday evening or Saturday evening. If anyone else is hosting something this weekend -- bummed I land after the epic meeting tomorrow night at Cosmo -- LMK!

    That IS the best email! I've recently jumped in to this century with an Android phone, and discovered that my Delta app has countdown timers right on the home screen for checkin and departure, so I can see that now with one click. So glad there are so many TRs through which I can live vicariously for the next 6 weeks! Have a great time!
     
    Not saying not to a free fountain view suite to kick off Thanksgiving!
    Presidential Suite for the holiday woohoo!

    Thanks everyone for the good wishes and the props on the nails. :)

    The lead up to this trip was pretty unusual for me. Everything but my Encore room and MM tickets I waited to the last minute to arrange. Had a full work day today but thank goodness I was able to work from home this afternoon as that is when I packed! Yikes! And now I am in a Lyft heading to the airport late..Ugh. I will make my flight but I am annoyed at myself that I am rushing and JFK is no joke. Thank goodness for TSA Pre Check.

    Okay, now that I have done the self-flagellation I am mentally gonna forgive myself and focus on getting to the airport and to my gate. One of the great things about Lyft is I think the GPS interface is better than Uber. I know my ETA but can also see traffic bottlenecks better.

    I got a great MINT fare going and for a pod seat on the right side of the plane :woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo: so will decompress once I get in that seat and get in the moment for VEGAS!!!!!

    We’ve all been there, but at least you got it all out of the way before the flight! Positive vibes for extreme positive outcomes!

    You got this, and have a great time!:thumbsup:
