I had a quick weekend trip to Las Vegas from November 1 until November 4. I used a Frontier gift certificate, had free rooms at the Orleans and the Main Street Station, and got a pretty good deal on a rental car from the Budget location across the street from the Orleans. As an aside, the Budget location gets slammed online for bad service, filthy cars, and other problems. But my experience was perfect. I got a clean car and relatively quick service. More on that later.. As usual, I had a good time and did my usual sniper-style craps run, ate strip steak every night, and enjoyed the crowd on Fremont Street. I was up and down but finished the trip in the black After a fun Saturday night, I woke at 3 a.m. Vegas time because that is 6 a.m. back home. I tried to sleep more but decided to watch tv and do some work on my laptop. Finally, I played some craps in the Main Street Station (lost $80) and walked over to the Cal on my way to Fremont Street. I played with one other gambler and ended up winning $159. I like to walk on Fremont Street early on Sunday morning because it is very peaceful. I strolled around and decided to pop into the Golden Gate because they sent me a mailer with food credit and free play. I waited because it was 7:55 a.m. and the One club opened at 8:00 a.m. As a solo traveller, I love to do things on my own terms. I am a social guy and talk to everyone and always make friends while I travel. So when some giant man stood in line behind me, we started to talk and soon discovered that were both craps playing degenerates. I mentioned that he might want to join VMB because it is so full of information and fun trip reports. Then he said he is a member. So, sending a shoutout to @EastCoastVegasFan! We talked, dranks several beers, laughed and went on an early morning craps run at the D and Four Queens. It was my first VMB encounter and was a lot of fun. So to all those members who are debating whether to meet up with other members, DO IT!
