    My Trip Report

    Good evening everybody. Once again we are poised to begin another JR/Gaggles adventure that will commence in Calgary, Alberta on the afternoon of April 11th. If all goes well we shall be landing in vibrant, sunny Bullhead Arizona on a little Harrah's Charter flight at 5:45 pm. Now, does anyone know whether we gain or lose an hour when we cross the river into Nevada???? I can never remember. JR and I fully expect to be the youngsters on this plane......

    Once there I will accept no less then THREE Aces with a kicker on the evening at DDBP! Dealt! On triple play. Anyone who thinks that is too greedy please go to the Keno Section of our forums please.

    Friday morning we shall grab a car around 11-12ish and take a nice little trip through the desert to the dirty little, naughty, pirate hooker port otherwise known as Vegas. Once there I have secured additional lodging at the Flamingo for a couple nights before we come back to Laughlin for Sunday.

    Activities I will be partaking of other than eating off a used room service tray as I stumble back to the room??? Well I was able to score a couple of comped Backstreet Boys tickets. JR and I have wanted to see them for a long time but we always miss them. I also have tickets booked for a show Saturday night but I am not telling JR what the show is until we are on our way to the show. No, it is not a nudie bar. Although that idea is not without its merits. After our show Saturday it is our intent to meet up with one of our fellow VMBers and we are looking forward to this.

    The weather doesn't look exactly fabulous but hopefully it will be warm enough for day drinking in the pool. For those who haven't partaken o our TR's.....we sorta like boozing at the pool.

    We are on the fence as to whether or not we will be bringing our good friend Heavy Flo due to the half assed weather. It is certainly warm enough to be at the pool by Canadian standards but by Vegas standards the weather will be just okay.

    After our two days in Vegas it will be back to Harrah's Laughlin for perhaps some beach time on the river. We will have car so it's possible that we could look at The Haunted Museum from Ghost Adventures. Macker and I went to that before and it was pretty cool. Could also be a Pinball Hall of Fame trip. We will also be stopping downtown at some point although the order and probability of all of this stuff could depend on the weather. A bucket of beers by the pool is not to be ignored.

    Two more sleeps and it is on. Can you dig it??????

    You've definitely been to Laughlin more than I have and I'm sure you know this... but the beaches a few miles south on the Colorado River are way nicer than the private beach at Harrah's. Granted, they're "public" beaches, and you'd have to drive to and from which would limit drinking... but having been on both beaches myself I'd much prefer the "public" beaches. Much quieter, and better sun exposure.

    Also, I'm actually amazed that TR air flies out of YYC straight to Bullhead. Sounds like you two have a fun trip in the works, looking forward to lots of big wins! :)

    And don't leave poor Heavy Flo behind...It's supposed to be 25 and 29 Canadian on Saturday and Sunday!

    THey actually pick up in Edmonton and Calgary. Going to Laughlin they pick up in Edmonton first then Calgary. Coming home they drop off the same as pick up. So half the plane is Edmonton, half is Calgary.

    Their shall be no shots of big wins as they only encourage chasing, destructive behaviour, and poor choices.

    We are absolutely NOT going to glorify alcohol as it can lead to erratic and irresponsible behaviour.
