Just a brief recap about my trip. I got into vegas early Sunday morning, May 5. Ran errands most of the day. checked into MSS at 3 pm. I arrived at MSS at 2 but they said that the room type I wanted wasn't available until 3. I wanted a room facing south, lower numbered room (so I could get the walk in showers) and a high floor if possible. Hung around the casino until 3. They gave me room 1203, about 2/3's up the hotel. As mentioned in other threads, the water pressure in the shower was poor. I asked other guests on higher floors how their water pressure was and most said that the pressure was bad to nonexistent. Guess the lower floors have better water pressure. One other thing, guess because of the rain I found roaches in my room 3 days. They are the beetle looking roaches. I asked housekeeping for an extra towel so I could put them under the door. I also plugged my sink just in case the roaches were coming up through the pipes. I didn't find any more roaches after that. Since the casinos are crowded and busy in the early evenings I visited some strip clubs. the strip clubs weren't that crowded in the early evenings so I got to relax away from the crowded casinos. I visited Spearmint Rhinos, Treasures, Crazy Horse 3, Cheetahs, Lil Darlings and Palominos. This time I enjoyed Palomino's the best. While the girls aren't 10's they were more fun and entertaining. Also good that they allowed more "hands on" action (at least on top) than the other clubs. I will have to put Palomino's on my "visit" list in the future. Costs was also the best, free entry and under $10 for a drink. I didn't go to clubs every day, just 3 nights of my 6 night stay. The other nights I visited shopping malls (bought new golf shoes) and visited the strip 1 night and gambled downtown the other night. One day I drove out to Laughlin. BEWARE, this time there were a few radar speed traps and wouldn't you know it, I got a ticket. I didn't follow my own rules (follow someone faster than you) and I got caught 10 minutes after taking the 93 cutoff to Laughlin. Actually I did follow my rules in the beginning. One guy took off after the cutoff, going 100 to 110 in a flash. I followed him thinking that he would get caught first. I didn't notice that he slowed down drastically so I passed him on the fly. I guess he had a radar detector because over the rise a cop was waiting to catch people. The cop was nice and he wasn't as strict since I was a tourist and had a rental car. He flagged me going 97 in a 75 mph zone but the ticket was for going 80 - 5 mph over the limit. He said that I would have to go to court if I was ticketed going 20 mph over the speed limit but he knew it would be tough to come back to court so he was lenient and just ticketed me for going 5 mph over the limit. Still, it wasn't cheap, I checked the web site, looks like the fine is $200 but it was a lesson learned. The rest of the way and the way back I made sure I followed someone else going faster than me. But I did see 2 other people getting ticketed, one on the way to Laughlin, the other in the same areas as where I got caught. I guess you can't go 100 for very long on the road to Laughlin. I just hope that my insurance company gets wind of this ticket, I don't to have to pay more for insurance. The rest of the week was kind of bland. Had to watch out because of the rains and storms but I did visit Henderson (harbor freight, golf galaxy, galleria - Dicks, and the pet store to check out the pets). I also went to Summerlin to visit Trader Joe's. And I visited some shopping malls (meadows mall - to find new watch band for my swiss watch, Belz mall and the fashion show mall to visit Dicks to pick up my golf shoe). I wanted to visit Mt. Charleston or Red Rock Canyon but the rain and storms prevented that. I also visited Sam's town one afternoon. Gambling. I averaged about $200 a day (that included my strip club visits so I did win every so often) except for my last day where I almost tripled my gambling. I played craps mostly although I played some VP and played the Megabucks at least once a day. I also played .25 WOF. I was lucky, I hit 1000 credits on the spin and had some other spins and won about $500 so it took care of my Megabucks and WOF play. It was a good week since I seemed to have won at least one spin during my WOF visits. The past year I seldom won any spins. Comps. I won a couple of dinner buffets at MSS and a breakfast buffet at the Cal but tell you the truth I was a little tired of the all you can eat buffets.. I'm getting older and not able to eat as much so I wouldn't pay to go to a buffet. one note, Market St. café has a prime rib special special (yes it's a special to the special). From 3 to 6 the prime rib special costs only $9.99. After 6 it goes up to $10.99 or 11.99 or something like that. But all these specials include the all you can eat salad bar and cherries jubilee for dessert. Costs. I was lucky and scored 2 free nights at MSS. I averaged about $50 for the other nights, including resort fees so I paid about $200 for my 6 night stay. Still reasonably priced to return in the future, especially if I get some free night comps. For Boyd I earned about 250 points towards my sapphire level so now I have close to 600 points to make sapphire. you need 750 points so I will have to go back before the end of the year if I want to make sapphire at Boyd casinos.
