    My Trip Report

    Hi there!

    As you can see, my wife and I will be in Vegas, off strip, from the 4th of February through the 12th.

    We have some plans:
    - Betting our first ever sports bet on the SB
    - Visiting Valley of Fire (first time) and Red Rock Canyon (3rd time) for a hike
    - Celebrating my 33rd birthday at Southpoint (feb 8-9)
    - We have a livingsocial coupon for the Kiss mini golf... hahaha! We might go there!
    - We have an invitation to the Sweetheart Ball dinner at Sam's.... sounds cheesy, but I think we're gonna go :')

    Please, don't expect too much from this TR. I tried to do a TR twice before and failed both times... sorry!
    This time the updates will be mainly pics, with some text, but not a lot of it. I figured out how to use Tapatalk (not too complicated) and I will be posting short updates from my phone.

    There was/is a pre-trip-report going on over here:
    https://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?threads/only-4-more-nights-cant-wait.138453/

    Some basic info:
    My wife and I will take this trip together, as always.
    It's our 8th trip to Vegas.
    We always stay off strip, we don't like the strip.
    We have a car for the whole week.
    We have daily envelopes, love that system. Who invented that? If it was you, YOU'RE AWESOME!
    We play Pai Gow Poker, BJ, a little bit of slots. Oh, we're definitely low rollers!


    Any questions, please feel free to ask!
    Enjoy :)

    That's correct! Schiphol has a 'Holland casino'. Slots are very tight there... We'll wait a few more hours ;)
