    Looks like another fun trip to vegas again!

    Now I get why your wife is going all the way to Lincoln get dental work. I was definitely confused by that one at first. Lol

    Thanks Breanna! I'm a big fan of the 24-hour trip during the non-pool season, but during the summer I like those longer trips with day-after-day of pool drinking and relaxation!

    Leg #4 takes place tomorrow! This will be another same-day, in-and-out, but a little less exciting than Fort Lauderdale. Well maybe less scenic. Due to wife needing some expensive dental work, we are heading to my childhood home in Lincoln, Nebraska to have my dentist sister do the work.

    We will fly ORD-OMA, seats have been upgraded to First Class, but no meal, which is fine as we will be renting a car for the drive to Lincoln and hitting an old favorite spot--Valentino's Grand Italian Buffet!!!

    https://valentinos.com/grand-italian-buffet/

    On a past trip for similar reasons, we had a little extra time and stopped at the casino in Omaha and won $4,000 on $2 DDB Aces-Kicker!!! If we have extra time this trip we will shoot to relive a fond memory!!!

    Trip #5 will be next week to Phoenix. There may actually be a Trip #6 depending on the dental issues, and due to the Vegas winnings I have already reserved Trip #7 in January to Baha Mar!!!

    The room isn't vegas-quality or anything, but for what I like---pool & beach access, I wouldn't ever stay anywhere else!

    Cosmo is basically begging for those door signs to be stolen. Can't believe they don't sell them in their gift shops. Loved the old wooden ones more, but assume they got to expensive to constantly replace.

    Leg #5 begins tomorrow with a 130 flight ORD-PHX.

    I’ll be trading 20s for 60s so not bad!

    We are going to Topgolf and the casino on Friday, playing golf at Borats course on Saturday, and playing Greyhawk Raptor in Scottsdale on Sunday.

    We play 2-man team scramble skins so it’s a very fun vibe.

    We are eating at the casino buffet on Friday, and will hit some nice spots for dinner on Saturday and Sunday. Undoubtedly at least one In-N-Out
    Meal will be on the agenda for lunch. My buddy lives right by one location! I will be challenging
    Him and his boys to the 4x4 eating competition for sure!

    Our other buddy lives about 1/2 mile away and has a sweet salt water hot tub so we normally drink in that after a day on the course.

    I’ll post golf, food and gambling pics throughout.

    I’ll have a couple week lull for the holidays before leg #6 trip to Nebraska which will feature a nice steakhouse stop, and then leg #7 to wrap up at Baha Mar!!!

    I did the same for several years until my job changed to non travelling. Now I am a lowly grunt on United. Still Platinum for life on American due to million mile status though

    Nice!! I wish I had gone with United alone
    A few years earlier, I may still make million mile status before retiring if I keep traveling for work and keep doing a lot of personal travel. I’m kinda guessing technology and cost savings will get me working more from home before I make it, which wouldn’t be bad because that home is gonna change from Chicago to The Caribbean the moment that becomes a reality!

    It's truly a technological world we're living in when hostesses can be satisfied from the comfort of your own home!
