    I’ve used Excel and Word in the past. Doesn’t really matter, as outside of the flights and hotels, I never stick to what’s on the plan anyhow. Really more of a loose itinerary.

    Good luck on the trip!

    I would find all this exhausting. We have a list of stuff we want to do. We do it or don’t do it, depends on the day. We usually do long trips, and are old now. We go with the flow.

    Have a great time NFC and friends. I will enjoy following along. You will probably make me feel tired. ;););):nworthy:

    I'll be down at Golden Gate for the next 2 nights, so your Tuesday and Wednesday sound similar to mine :headbang:. I'll look for ya at the Vue Bar. I'll be showing my outfits of the day in my trip report that I'll start tomorrow.

    Yup, sounds like me to a T as well :clap::clap:

    I have not… it’s something I’ve largely moved away from, as I find it to be a bit too much legwork to make the most out of. Plus now that I’m taking comps more seriously, I don’t want to trigger a gaming day in most places just to use a $10 match play. If I do another “residential” style trip I may consider this, especially because by the time that happens I’ll finally have a drivers licence which will make it easier to get around.

    Happy early birthday! :beer:

    Potential shocker… I am actually checking a bag for the first time in forever this trip! What for? A whole lot of sugar… I’ll reveal that once I get to the airport :)

    Today is the day! :) will begin my on-the-ground reporting from DTW airport this evening.

    We’ve got our first audible of the trip. Overview is as follows…

    - Thursday night instead of going to Jerry’s Nugget, I’ll be going to Durango station to have dinner with one of my local friends, and then we’re going to the Arte Museum on the strip

    - Before heading out to Durango, I’ll be checking into Aria, where I got a one-night stay on a MyVegas comp. This is mainly to have a home base on the strip so I don’t have to worry about getting back downtown that night… plus I’m moving across the street to Planet Hollywood the next day anyhow. It also saves me a tiny bit of money as the third non comped night at The D came to $60-something with resort fee… whereas the resort fee at Aria (boo no more MGM Gold :( ) is only about $50ish.

    - This will also likely result in me missing both DTG tournaments. Ah well :)

    I guess it doesn't take much time to get across the boarder now a days, since you have to pack and be done with work?
    I will be following a long on your always enjoyable TR's!
