    My Trip Report

    Folks,

    A couple of Pilots and their First Officers are flying me to Las Vegas today.

    CHO down to Charlotte Douglas International, NC and over to McCarran International, USA. Get in around 10:30 in the PM.

    First Class from CLT to LAS. It was $400 and I thought that wasn’t a bad deal for a cross country flight.

    My hope is that it's not the best $400 I spend on this venture. It certainly could be if everything turns to a pile of crap and people tell me I smell.

    There will be liquor.

    There will be grass and pygophilia.

    Me gamble, too.

    Yes, I’m aware that the pigment of my skin is different from my head, neck and arms in three of the four images…leave me alone.

    FRI Night 9/27 – Comp @ Mandalay
    SAT 9/28 – TUE 10/1 – 1 BR Pent @ Vdara
    TUE 10/1 – FRI 10/4 – GG Suite @ Golden Gate

    I’m going to check out Geoff Tate and some of the fellers from Queensryche, who are playing at Vamp’d Rock Bar on WED 10/2, but this will mostly be the usual shit mentioned above.

    Heading to Colorado immediately after for Homecoming weekend in Ft Collins, home of the Cambridge of North America (Colorado State University). I’m going to run the 39th Annual 5K Homecoming Race @ 8 AM MST on SAT 10/5 like the stupid bastard I am and then I get to see my alma mater get their asses kicked by San Diego State.

    But first things first.

    XO

    Reading a TR by TD is like opening Christmas presents as a 5 year old.

    Please keep this as inappropriate as possible.

    Remember when you didn't get the present you wanted on your fifth Christmas? You threw a fit, didn't you? Didn't you, Gino!!!!

    TUE evenin' could / would work for "7" after the Postseason baseball thingy.

    It involves the butt.

    This will be my fifth show there. Never been when there wasn't a concert, but it's a terrific venue. One of my favorites in town despite it being way west up there yonder on Sahara.

    Unfortunately, I'm not staying at The Co'tez this trip, where they always roll out the red carpet for a fella.

    Alright, talk later. May as well get the journey off to a good start. If you don't like this, I'm not sure we can be friends.

    We are on the 6:30 pm out of CLT today and staying DT. Based on your 10:30 pm arrival you must be on the flight after ours. Safe travels!

    Nice I am just booking a trip for the end of October and no better way to get ready than a FormalyTD report. Can’t wait for this adventure.

    Love a TD TR, always a mixture of my trip aspirations, with a subtext of Hunter S Thompson and Leaving Las Vegas. Can’t wait

    Them pilots got us to Charlotte real good.

    I need to give a shout out to the Flight Attendant for this vodka pour.
    [​IMG]
    Thought I was back at the old Buck's on E Johnson in Madison, WI. 80% booze and 100% satisfaction.

    About ready to board the longer leg and have some entertainment options (other then getting bombed…or maybe that’s not a good term for a flight….’sauced’, yes).
    [​IMG]

    I am assuming this should be a fascinating read. I can’t say I’ve ever seen any of Ashley Blue’s work (I’m more of a Nautica Thorn and Dillion Harper guy…who are apparently too busy and too uppity to write a memoir).

    Then, about three hours in when the words get really blurry and I start feeling sorry for the lady, I’ll put on the Bose noise reduction headphones and listen to some hits.

    Listen, it’s very difficult to live up to the label many on this forum have placed upon me, ‘Manliest Man-Guy’. Everyone expects me to be macho like that ‘Big Bad John’ person Jimmy Dean sang about, but the truth is that it’s trying to live up to such expectations.

    I know, I know. I meticulously chop up fruit and color coordinate them in the one gallon freezer bags whenever I stay at a hotel with a large refrigerator. I drink grasshoppers. I travel with my eucalyptus bath oil so I can soak in bubbles while I put slices of English cucumbers in me eyes. I’ve been known to unwind in a spacious suite by ordering a cobb salad and enjoying a glass of Beau Joie Special Cuvee Brut Rose while I sit captivated watching an episode of ‘The Bachelor/ette’.

    I’m tired of being the tough guy.

    Thus, I made this playlist I call ‘Duets’. I will listen to it and I just pray I don’t have waterworks streaming down the cheeks, embarrassing myself for showing the First Class cabin that I’m a HUMAN BEING!
    [​IMG]

    These type of tunes bring me back to one of my first slow-dance experiences at Sabin Junior High when I was fortunate enough to sway with one Rachelle Paternetti. We held each other tightly as we grooved to ‘Drive’ by The Cars. She was one of those girls who had, what seemed like to a 14 year old, large tata’s. There was always that one girl in middle school who developed like some sort of abnormal monstrosity in the boob department and Ms Paternetti was that chick.

    I never did get to see them. I just felt them pressing up against my skin and bones through our sweaters on the dance floor (I had the physique of one of those Sally Struthers 'Feed The Children' kids back then...minus the flies circling around me).

    Her melons were real…mostly because young teen girls didn’t get breast implantation back in those days. Just a side note.

    See y’all in Las Vegas.
