    I have a pair of glasses that blocks blue and green light that I use before bed. Blocking those light frequencies naturally produces melatonin and makes you tired. Pretty trippy!

    I can’t say what will happen tonight, but we did pull a $100 food comp we couldn’t possibly spend- Wait we could...

    (Redacted. Lol..)

    A question:
    Got a FP on points in 24 hours coupon thing going on.

    I can’t get a straight answer from anyone on this. For promos like this (x freeplay per y points) do u (if so where!) get qualifying points at table games?

    Answers were wishy washy, usually no, “but actually I have no idea how that works”.

    Are they usually based on tier or reward credits? From what I’ve seen it seems big no for tables.

    $100 comp = Redwood, Maybe your GF can get another comp to = a splash out meal there. I love Redwood. If you go, don't forget the Dogfish 90 minute IPA.

    Sorry about the VP run. As you say, pay tables turn out not to mean that much when you aren't hitting anything that pays, but bad variance isn't napalm. Just feels that way some times.

    Good luck with the rest of your trip.

    Sit at the bar. You won’t be disappointed. Tell him a guy said you could order the French onion soup; and if dissatisfied he’ll pay for it. Only Keith knows what’s what but it’s funny. Or, get ready to be dazzled in the dining hall!!

    Hit GG and just threw for 20ish minutes, bringing my entire side of new friends back from the felt.
    Started the session throwing a few points, then watching an entire rotation of straight PSOs.
    As I've done three times this trip it starts with me telling the two people to my left I've seen the incredible comeback from felt, it IS possible. Then proceed to throw for longer than I ever had before...
    It was either win, rebuy, or quit.

    As Usual, tons of pressed up money out there when the inevitable came.

    Also as has happened twice this trip, the roll feels incredibly long, and pressing up is working..
    But at final count up not that much, because the whole first half of the roll was digging out of the hole I had started from.

    A little Up is better than nothing at all.

    We’ve been chipping slots for little dinks,
    P played roulette att gg for about and hour and a half, fought felt, came out up $8.

    A wins a win, book it.

    Heading to mss for last stand pt 1.
    @Ty, whatcha doin?

    look at how I'm playing the field,

    I mean seriously, who do I have to fuck to get a 4oak anywhere?

    I must not have been listening to enough motivational music on the earbuds.

    Back to the tables then.

    (later learned our late departure may have helped us avoid a bad duststorm around Barstow)
    (Also stumbled upon a nice empty Terribles Chevron a bit N of Barstow that will replace the Chevron there we usually stop at)




    Lookin' out the window
    At a world on fire
    Flames see the end is near
    Seen all the sights
    Tired of the lights
    So you can let me off right here

    This town's getting crowded
    Truth's been shrouded
    Think it's time to change up the sound
    Yeah, the wheels keep turning
    The flames get higher
    Another cycle rolls around

    Face in the mirror's all skin and bone
    Bloodshot eyes and a heart of stone
    Never again, I'd rather be alone
    Think I'm gonna just stay home
    And make art, not friends

    I love saying "No" to all the "Yes" men
    Just to see the look on their face
    I love how everybody knows what's best
    But nobody knows their place

    Sucker every second, stack 'em up to the sky
    For every winner there's a hundred that die
    So you get yours, stay out of mine
    Here's to the memories, where do I sign?

    Face in the mirror's all skin and bone
    Bloodshot eyes and a heart of stone
    Never again, I'd rather be alone
    Think I'm gonna just stay home
    And make art, not friends.

    (anyone know whats up with uploading a picture with tapatalk, seeing it post as Adjustments.jpg, then it failing the clickthrough like right above? -
    answered my own question, using the picture icon allows downsizing, while using the attach does not)

    (trip report will fill in more details later)
    Random thoughts:
    right now, my imagination runs wild, as I wonder, "But did he come with her", then fills in the blanks. with more imagination...



    Didn’t win new car money, but got repair money. Still think we need a new car though .... but

    As far as VP, no, never happened. For either of us. After that side by side 4oak (except mine was 4 2s on Bonus), and another at South Point on the way in, I am pretty sure neither I or P caught any more 4oaks, (wrong, she caught one at DTG then took the comeback) in probably $4-500+ in, it is the incredible drought continuing for me from a few trips ago, I kind of understand mine, as I am no longer willing to drop a whole 100, and will bail on the first bounceback or cut losses, but she plays hard and fast and the 100s go down fast.

    I get that if I wanted to, I could play through the variance, but I was much more focused on tables, and risking the BR there, and also got my value chatting with the bartender, grabbing a drink, and trying to keep losses minimal. Even that ridiculous 5 cent machine wouldn't cough up a 4oak. maybe I caught one at pennies, doesn't really count.

    I told her to give it up (DDB), and hit the slots, and it worked out well.

    As far as everything else, it went pretty well, as I will eventually reveal..
    There were many incredible craps comebacks, I held the dice for 15-25 minutes at least 3, maybe 4 times.
    a lot of scratching up a bit in BJ,
    more cutting losses and running than I usually do,
    and as usual, P's slot magic.

    also FP conversion went pretty incredible.

    So all in all a great trip.
    Free room, free food, and overall, believe it or not, I kind of chilled on going on tilt.
    We got out up, and up pretty good, which is incredibly rare.

    Details forthcoming, as soon as I can figure out why this new phone won't download properly to my PC, something about all these live photos, and the .mov files, and .heic,

    or probably I just need to reboot :mad:

    Struggling w photos- looks like new phone put me back into the cloud, so I’ll just pop P’s slot hits up and think about what I learned for the next one :

    Oh, here’s the latest and lightest itieration of self-sufficient coffee we brought.

    We’ve done a small bodum kettle and camping style mini French press (delicious w Peet’s),
    A small keurig pod machine,
    [​IMG]
    And now, when packing light, this is good enough in a pinch-
    Usually she is getting play and coffee well before I’m up.
