    Thank you so much @mattjb for continuing to post. For many of us who had upcoming trips that had to be cancelled your vlog is a wonderful Vegas fix!!

    And I agree 100% about the beauty of the neon at Circus Circus. It has been ages since I have been that close so I very much appreciated your video of the neon at the front of the hotel. Stay safe and carry on!

    "Better than what the Trooper gets" - amazing!

    Good luck with your flights, and in the meantime, good luck at the machines! Win enough for a flight on a private jet :)

    Great vlogs as always Matt! Wishing you all the luck Vegas has and for safe travels back home. I feel this set of Vlogs will be looked back on for many different reasons. No doubt an unprecedented time in Vegas and you are the best to be onsite and able to Vlog it!

    Wow! What a night at the D! I still watch Pawn Stars so it was very cool that you met both "Rick" from the show and Derek Stevens.

    Thanks for taking us along the super fun ride and good luck with the travel arrangements home!

    I’m rather hoping the lack of updates means you’ve got a flight home. Bad luck all round on the trip but some special moments captured in the vlogs.

    Sorry for the lack of updates, I've been trying to sort flights etc. Here are two more episodes, the second of which shows the casino lockdown. Take care all...and stay healthy X

    I know this is stressful times for LV but I am so glad you are there and we can see what is happening because of your videos --- and you still have been having a good time.... I think you'll be glad though to get home-safe...

    Hope your flight wasn't cancelled. My friends were due to go home tomorrow, but AA cancelled and they are trying to get home on another airline now.

    Just read about the Nevada governor closing down the casinos for the next 30 days...there goes my Vegas trip for early next month. I poured myself a stiff Hendricks gin and tonic and watched your last two Vlogs....sigh. I'll have to watch some of your past trips until this madness is over. Thanks for all your time and effort that you put into these Vlogs; I and many people here at VMB enjoy them immensely. Safe travels home and stay well.

    Wow. These last two videos were both beautiful, surreal and a little sad at the same time. I'm glad you had some super fun times, even if the gaming wasn't good the last two days. Your footage of some of the casinos that were literally vacant are historic and will be interesting to see months from now when hopefully things are back to a new normal. I love your video from your Cosmo balcony, both at dusk and in the morning. Once again, a wonderful, informative and yes, surreal, trip report!

    Best wishes for your last evening and with your arrangements getting back home!

    Thank you for posting these videos. These will forever be special for the Vegas community. I am volunteering to be in the first wave to bring the city back to life. My thoughts are with all who are now trying to get home safely and the poor folks who a without income and resources as so many business, especially in Vegas, suffer dearly.

    Great stuff as usual @mattjb. Your last video...wow. Sorry you flew across the pond for such a bad time to be in Vegas but it was great to see your positive attitude and REALLY great to see that you were able to get things squared away with your return flight home.

    Have a great last night in Vegas!!! :woohoo::drunk:

    I have to ask before I admit to liking your vlog, are you a Spurs fan?

    Good luck getting back, I was due out on the last allowed uk allowed to visit flight but no return plane meant that couldn’t happen which leaves me in limbo land with a refund - talking to a human would be helpful - so your best result of the trip was actually getting to speak to a human at the airline !
