    My Trip Report

    Good afternoon to all my VMB friends who are reading VMB when they should be working. And hello to the rest of you. I bet if we took a poll right now 50% of you would be the latter. No fear. None of us will say a word. When you are on VMB you are under the Cone of Safety.

    I realize I just got back home a few weeks ago but would it be so wrong for me to go back so soon? Is that really so wrong? is it? Thank you...thank all of you. I knew you would support me. I understand you are a tough group to win over when it comes to Vegas.

    So here we are, just over 48 hours away from another Gaggles adventure. Alas, I must apologize in advance. Their will be no JR on this one. It will be largely a Gaggles Solo Adventure. JR is working away at a new job and just cannot get more time off, especially before our Vegas September trip. That is going to be a big one everybody because Gaggles and JR are tying the knot in...guess where......???? If you guessed Vegas you would be correct! In what promises to be a bit of an adventure with a cast of characters resembling the cast and extra's from The Cannonball Run (some of you youngsters may not have seen that movie and shame on you if you haven't) I am hopeful to give you a TR to remember. If you were debating dates to go in September, I might suggest the dates of Sep 10-16.

    But this is not September and this is not a wedding. In fact, it is not even a bachelor party. That is next weekend in Montana....... I prefer to think of this upcoming trip as a calming soothing balm. The kind of balm that @vegasmacker had to apply to his "personal area" after that one visit to Little Darlings a couple years ago. No, this trip is going to be like a relaxing cup of warm tea in a sunny, serene, mountain vale with butterflies flitting about and fauns on wobbly legs walking to a pond to get a drink from the calm, icy blue waters. Songbirds will be singing in the distance with nary a cloud in the sky.

    Or....or....just throwing it out there and adding a little tadpole of change up....it could be like drunken vikings storming the beaches of Normandy to liberate the golds and riches from the ancient Aztec empires of Africa!

    Ya, I am not real good with historical book learning so maybe let's not fact check this too much.

    Okay let's refocus. Why am I going to Vegas right before a wedding? Well they hooked me into a trip by offering me a free CET Cruise which may or may not be included in some kind of super duper fun honeymoon package after the wedding! So the lovely JR has given Gaggles the blessing of a little weekend getaway to go pick us up a cruise package. I even got them to throw in a little Freeplay and some Resort Credit for a couple buckets of beer at the pool. This also won't exactly be a solo adventure. My friend MB is also going to meet me there and he is also picking up a cruise. I have also made some plans to meet up with 2-3 of our fellow VMBer's over the weekend. Hopefully all will go as planned and all planes will be on time for a safe landing Thursday at 5:00ish pm.

    Let the trip report commence.....as of Thursday......

    Can’t wait to follow your adventures and congratulations on the upcoming nuptials! Getting married in Vegas sounds perfect! I’ll send you my Triple Triple Bonus Poker luck to “borrow” as a wedding gift! I’m looking at a September trip now too, so if you need an extra or reserve bridesmaid or grooms woman let me know! Hahahaha! (Hey, sometimes a girl needs a good excuse to convince their spouse they need another Vegas trip) ;) Let the slurred text and handpays commence!

    Ya I am gonna shoot you a text for a little craps or Blackjack session for Thursday or Friday. I literally haven't played BJ since the last time I played with you about 2 year ago? Probably if I played more BJ and less VP I would have more money for this trip coming up! Stupid, ridiculously fun, video poker!!!

    I've received 'free' cruises from CET. From what I remember, they don't include the port charges and administration fees. When all of that is said and done it usually comes out to a 2-4-1 deal. Basically you pay half the cost of the cruise. Not a bad deal, but should you encounter this it's best to be mentally prepared instead of getting pissed off at the surprise.

    Looking forward to following the adventure. You must have typed the wedding dates wrong. It should be the 25-30th. Either way I’m sure it will be awesome.
