    My Trip Report

    As I mentioned a couple month's ago, Frontier had one of those advertised fare sales for $15 each way to select destinations. Since I was not interested in the Cleveland to Bismarck fares, I was not expecting much.

    I was super thrilled to find a direct, non-stop flight from CLE to LAS for this weekend for $28.62. I am scheduled to land at McCarran around 9 a.m. and will depart at 9 a.m. on Sunday, so I will have 48 hours on the ground.

    I just checked in online and was assigned a middle seat, but that is not a big deal for me. I am big but can handle planes for 5 hours. Once you have flown from Newark, NJ to Hong Kong in coach for 18 hours, 5 hours to Las Vegas is nothing.

    I am staying at the Plaza who have been very good to me with offers. I stayed in a renovated room last December 2019 and loved it. I was huge, clean and very quiet. They have a free hotel shuttle to and from the airport with your reservation, but I cancelled last night after I was able to book a car for $40, all in.

    I was going to use the shuttle and then the bus to get to Wynn for my dinner buffet, but for $40, the freedom of a car is well worth the price.

    I will do a trip report as I go along and hope it brings joy or amusement to someone. I will be meeting some VMB members for craps rolls. Just a message to members who hesitate to meet members in person: It has been a lot of fun and I even went to a meetup with several members at Bally's. Give it a try!

    Thanks for the good luck wishes. I always go with a good feeling and positive vibes....

    Then the loathing and self-hate settles in. But I would not trade the mood swings and depression for the world :)

    Good luck to you. As for the middle seat, maybe the plane will be tail heavy and they will ask for volunteers to move front. It happened to me twice and they didn’t even finish the sentence before I was moving!

    I may bump into you Saturday, be prepared :whistle:

    @duffer1991 - Hope you have a great trip and set some legendary records at the tables! Since you will have a car, maybe you should go here show them a big bettor and clean all the chips from the table!

    That's Great. Win- Win. Someone posted a photo of new material going on the Craps tables at the California if you're interested.

    @PressThe5n9 I was going to ask if this is the Joker's Wild, but @EastCoastVegasFan! beat me to it :)

    Thanks for the well-wishes everyone. It will be a great weekend out of Cleveland.

    @Maine Farmer I will check out the Cal since I love their graveyard specials. That is one of the benefits of being on east coast time. I wake no later than 4 a.m. Vegas time and can grab a great meal.

    @duffer1991 - if our dates match-up, we should go out there. It's super fun. I'll pay for the Uber, the drink service is rapid fire.

    Definitely go to JW as well. Don’t know if they still have the quarter chips or not, but I kept a few from last trip out there to have in my collection.
