    Glad to read you had such a terrific trip, Mike.

    Sorry you now have to go to Winchell's to get your donuts.

    Thanks for sharing another great report, Mike! I always love your pictures and your positive attitude about Vegas. Sounds like I need to make a point to be in town when @Retrobabble is around so we can meet up.

    Safe travels home!

    Safe travels home, @MikeOPensacola ! Thank you for such an amazing trip report! - and can I just say, I really like the happy, fun pictures you take of the hotel staff? It's nice to see - and as someone who worked in the industry (I miss ittttt!), it's nice to see everyone having a good time. :)

    Such a great trip report - and I loved all the pictures, detail and food! So glad you had such a blast with other VMBers - and good wins to boot! :D Can't wait for your summer trip - maybe we'll meet up then!
     
    Well-deserved break!! Food & fun - always.

    Great report, I can see why you don't mind having lost a little, it was well worth it. It was fun following too. And that long, long limo, never saw one quite like that. Have a great trip home and a happy new year.

    Thanks so much for the phenomenal documentary. You know, in looking this over, I could say - with a straight face - that this Trip Report is such that there's no real need for us to go to Vegas this year. When the mood strikes, just open this thread. Exceptional savings and there's never a line. 'Cause you know how we feel about lines. :wave:

    Awesome trip report and spectacular pictures. Looks like a splendid time. It was a great to read it all at one sitting today as I am sitting at home with work being called off due to a 'snow day'. Yep, 11" of snow and counting the the wind blowing, a real blizzard, so thanks for bringing some enjoyment to my day.

    Love the way you spend a Christmas in Vegas. This year with losing DH, I had no desire to celebrate the holidays, but for the sake of my adult kids did anyway but without any real joy. I could eventually see myself making the transition and spending the holiday in Vegas.

    Thanks again for the great report. Happy New Year.

    What a great report Mike! Thank you so much for all the details and pictures! I really have to up my game in a few weeks and post more than just food and VP hits. LOL Between you, @ardee and @Retrobabble I am now sooooo anxious for my trip to get here!

    Thanks for keeping me entertained while I wait. And have a safe trip home!

    Where do comfort dogs poop and pee in airports? Seriously.

    Stuck in ATL on a flight delay pondering the inane. :confused:

    I honestly thought you were home by now, @MikeOPensacola. Sorry to hear about the delays.
    I hope you make it home soon and get some rest.

    Another EPIC trip report!!!!
    Your pictures are beyond awesome - I honestly think you can make a Vegas calendar out of the posts you've put on here that would be better than those in the gift shops.

    Thanks for sharing.
