I love reading everyone's trip reports so this is my attempt at a payback. We haven't been to Vegas in 9 years. Most of my gambling has been on cruises and poker at our lcal poker room (we are from Florida). But even with my rare foray into a CET property I still was able to get 3 free nights at Paris (paying 115 for Friday), plus the resort fees of course. Also used sky miles to fly free on Delta. Tried the $20 trick at checkin. My reservation was for a basic pet friendly king although we have no pet with us. Got a very friendly clerk who put us in a very recently remodeled 23rd floor room. Beautiful and we are happy. This being a very long travel day we did not do much tonight. Walked up the strip as far as Harrah's where I quickly dropped $175 by losing six straight BJ hands (one was a double). Too tired to chase it so settled for a bit more walking around and calling it a night. Will try to post daily out here but no promises.
