    My Trip Report

    i intend to stay on top of things every trip and fail miserably every trip. i'll try to do a bit better this time.

    we are flying out on a luxury airline tonight, frontier airlines. i've been sitting on lawn chairs for the past week to get my body ready for the four hour flight. i'll take a dvd player and some movies with me and the four hours will fly right by. i really couldn't pass up the airfare as my rt fare was only 150.

    four of us will be going. me, my brother Shon who is a regular travel companion, Stalder who has went with us three times in the last year and a young guy named Mike (i consider 30 young) who i work with. i hope to expose him to lots of gambling, drinking, cussing and lying.

    we are going on an offer from CET for a playoff party at the flamingo. normally the flamingo isn't the first place that would come to mind to watch the games but i figure the books will be pretty full and i like the idea of having a seat to watch the games. they are supposed to have some food and prizes also so we will see what happens. if it sucks, we will just leave.

    we are staying at Harrahs. i contacted my host who emailed me to inform me she moved on to another property. my last stay at harrahs was less than stellar as the room was very worn. my host said she would pass along our info to another host and try to get us into connected remodeled rooms. this might have just been lip service, guess we will find out tonight.

    hope to have some pics and info for you but don't hold your breath.

    Todd

    So we stopped for some pizza and beers since we were delayed. We get to airport and guy at Frontier desk says u better hurry, TSA is closing. We sprint to the security check point and the gates are drawn. I see a lady, explained we were delayed and she reopened and let us through. What a sweetheart. My brother couldn't find his boarding pass and they even waited for him to run back up and print a new one. Actually left Columbus about 9:30. Lesson learned!

    Grabbed a Lyft at airport, 4 of us plus driver in a Toyota Yaris. Had checked in online with Harrahs so just went to self service kiosk for keys. Was way quicker than standing in line. My ex host did us right and we got connected rooms in the newly renovated Valley Tower. I'm really impressed with the room. Headed down to casino even though I was exhausted. Played some pai gow, vp, and a game I usually hate, Mississippi Stud. When all was said and done, ended up winning $200 for the night. Not a huge win but certainly better than losing. Hope to get a good nights sleep and kick some ass downtown tomorrow. I'm going to just pass out if I don't get some sleep. Sorry no photos, nothing really worth a picture so far.

    Forgot, I did snap a couple of shots of the room. As I said before, I think this remodeled Valley tower room is very nice. Got about 4 hrs sleep, getting ready to tear it up today
