    My Trip Report

    Well, today is officially my last day at work...YEAH!!! Now, to make it through mothers day and onto my reward!! Unfortunately, my normal vegas buddy passed away last year. If she was around we would of went in March like we normally did. So, here is to you Vita..going to hit a royal for you!

    Ok, now for the good stuff. My co-worker is going with me on this trip, but she will be staying 2 nights at the Park and 1 at the Palms. As for me, all 3 nights will be at the Palms. We have a car scheduled to pick us up and I'm going to try the $20 trick to see if he would drop my co-worker at The Park. (The Palms is paying for the car)

    I'm hoping to update each night, but we will see.

    Now the hard part....getting through the next 4 days!!

    Have a fabulous trip. I really like what they've done with Palms! The Fantasy Tower has the newly renovated rooms.

    Shoot me a pm the day before you leave and I'll move this back to Trip Reports.

    Good luck!

    Sounds like a good trip in the works. I am thinking a 5 or 10 would make the driver happy to drop your co-worker off. Bring back some casino cash.

    Need family to leave, I have packing for a special place to do!

    Another win. A32 boarding and my Vegas buddy managed A33. That shocked me since our air fare was bought at different times!

    The Palms is absolutely beautiful!! They changed their cards so I had to get a new one. Decided to play buffalo gold with my free play. Ended up putting $200 in and on my last spin hit for $400. Played another $100 and hit the bonus for $400. Here for 1 hour and up $400. Nice start!!

    Nice start! I think you took the wrong pic though. The pictured spin was a 60c loss. Oops.

    Luck took a major nose dive!! Funny how you can go from being up 500 to down 500. Tomorrow is another day
