    Tonight was very relaxing. After lounging at the pool ate dinner at the plum lounge and then decided for fun to play a little bubble craps. At the beginning I was just playing for fun then after a bit started playing for real. Wish I was betting more at the start but it was the best bubble crapa roll I've seen. I took a quick photo but this was just a sample. I ended up staying only for the one shooter.

    So I'll post a photo of my bubble craps ticket. Keep in mind that I bet just enough per number to keep the in low as to not stop the game. So I needed a lot of wins.

    And then had a decent session of blackjack and was giving a tip so I bet an odd number of chips. I think it was 2265. Ended up getting dealt a pair of 6s vs a 3. Ended up with 4 6s and then a double. I didn't have a bunch of smaller chips so the hand took forever as I had to keep coloring down to bet.

    Wild night at blackjack. Played in the high limit room and it was 100-5k. First table I tried to go to was reserved so I waited around for another table to open. Sat down and while waiting for my marker someone else joined the table. He immediately lost his 2k and I was down 50k very quickly. Count was heavily in my favor. Bet 5k and got a double down so was in 10k and got a 20. Dealer turns over an 11 and then a 10 and I lose. Then play 2 hands at 5 k each and 2 blackjack so I'm rich but then the dealer flips over a blackjack as well. So much for that luck. So down I switched tables and got another marker. Great run winning all of the close hands and I'm back to even and call it a night. Asked for money to grab dinner and they will only give 100 bucks. Crazy as I just had a session rated at 6k a hand and they basically told me I was lucky to get the 100 and that I was pressing my luck. It was crazy. These casinos are such bad news for customers comp wise as there is no real local competition. So I put myself on a gambling ban here for a bit and it will be a quiet few days.

    Today is moving day. I'm being relocated over to Tampa for the weekend. Had a good session last night. 100 in free play turned into 1k on crazy rich Asians slot machine. Then had a good session playing blackjack. Casino was fairly quiet.

    Staying in the west tower at the hard rock in Tampa. Worked this morning now grabbing food at rise before heading upstairs to continue working. The casino here is busier than the one in forth Lauderdale. Its only my second time here so I haven't figured out where everything is.

    I remember last summer a guy here took a road trip from VA to Vegas, he worked remotely, he had to get up at 4am, and when work was done he’d play VP. He hit quite a few royals, I think he was up over $20,000. I believe he was there for a couple of months before he went home. It was an epic TR, though this one may beat it.

    The longest I was “homeless” was last summer on a 2 week road trip, from NJ to Vegas.

    I’m looking forward to seeing how this TR plays out.

    My drive over here I was thinking should I just donate my clothes and have new ones delivered every 10 days.....I'm thinking that may be the way to go. Cost me 4 dollars for a load of wash 9 dollars for a laundry basket and waiting on the drier. I think I'm going to return the basket and check on Amazon for a clothes delivery. It's an hour out of my day and I don't think it's worth the trouble to wash the clothes as I don't have anything other than t shirts shorts and bathing suits.

    how is laundry that much? when i was solo bachelor.. i did two baskets every two weeks and that cost me at most 8 bucks to wash and dry.
    but
    if you have the cash, just keep buying clothes like jack reacher in the lee child books, just dump your clothes in the goodwill change room and walk out with a bag full of "new clothes".

    $4 to wash and $1.50 to dry. Then I got back to the hotel played BJ for 30 minutes and left up $18k. Hardly seemed worth it to go to the laundry mat.

    His name was @Tarpie , and it was epic, especially because he was doing near full work days while shuffling around different comped rooms.

    I even ran into him early in his trip, in a Royal drought, at @Ty s favorite VP machine at the Cal.
