    My Trip Report

    1st of all. I am not nor will ever be, a trip reporter anywhere near the majority of you guys/ gals. I will make a feeble attempt at recalling much of the past 7 days.

    Started out with a relatively open flight from Buffalo to BWI. A little more crowded from BWI to LAS. Watched CREED 2 on BWI to Vegas flight. 1st ever watching the movie. IMHO it was better than the 1st Creed. Plus I’m a big Rocky fan.

    Upon arriving at LAS and riding down the escalator I’m greeted with ...

    Ahhh. That’s such a beautiful sight as you ride down to baggage claim. Quickly hit next rental car shuttle where i realized 2 things. A there is no more Dollar Express

    ( go straight to the garage for your car. Garage was a ghost town. I was directed to go back upstairs to the Dollar booth and heck in. Fortunately they had a Dollar Express line or I would have been there for a min. When I got to the counter the Dollar lady says “ we dint have the 7 passenger suburban that you requested. Uh oh. However we will put you in a Kia Sorrento ( 7 passenger ). Note when I booked the car over a month ago it costs 351.70 all inclusive for a week. The sa, e vehicle, had I waited till weds 10/7 ( date of my arrival) it would have cost over $700.00. So now I’m bracing for the new price. She informed that I’m still paying the same agreed upon price. Bingo.

    Off to Flamingo.......... When we arrived Diamond check in was closed. Fortunately, after temp checks and screening, I met Brian. Brian gave us a nice upgrade when I infringed him that Friday was our anniversary. And that we have 7/8 famiky and friends joining us at various times. Asked for more space as opposed to a better view. Gave up too flood room 28001. Can’t remember the name of the room but plenty , size, 2 tvS, king F019FED4-D705-4786-A204-3E677E02E6AC.jpeg size bed, couch , table and loooonnngg marble counter top.Wife loved the “pinkness” of the bathroom.

    After we got settled in we went to go check,our eldest daughter in a Harrahs Her original plans were 5/ nights comped ( my wife’s comps) at the Linq, but Wes night the Linq us closed. Som1 night at Harrahs and then check into Linq for next 4 nights. Sort of a hassle but free is free.
    Gambling was earth shattering however there were a few quads to be had...

Around 1 we picked up eldest at Harrahs and then middle daughter and niece from. Westgate and went to Egg Works. Great decision.
    First time there for any of us. I had the Blackened Prime Benny ( eggs Benedict with prime rib, sou SCH and some other goodies. Wife had something with salmon in it and the ladies had either stuffed French toast, eggs and hash browns. TBH honest my face was in my plate by the time Every one got served

    fter our downtown run the ladies went shopping. I went down to craps tables at flamingo. $25.00 minimums. Hmmm let me try Ballys. Bingo. $15 tables. I played for about 4/5 hours. Midway through I hit a $5.00 repeater 12 ( 40 to 1). Left up about 150. Walked back to flamingo and tried some more VP some hits and some misses! No royals

    Man you go into a guys trip report to kick his
    team? Bills had a really sloppy game, more turnovers and penalties than there previous four games. Hopefully a one off that being said was t wasn’t like they lost to the Bears or something. They lost to a team that was essentially off a two week bye and looking pretty good. Chiefs went 4-0 last year and then lost there next two games, turned out ok for them. I feel the Bills probably have a better chance of beating the Chiefs than Bucs do against the Packers. I guess we’ll see.

    I’m pretty sure that Rooster is friends with both Champster & his sister, Flowers. I believe Rooster’s comment was in jest.
