    My Trip Report

    [​IMG]

    Eaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasy Wonder Woman.......... not those double D's! I will be staying at The D downtown (12th-16th) and Delano on the strip (16th-19th).

    The offers:

    I am double booked at The D and Nugget. I'm hooking Magic Mike up with the room at the Nugget(rush tower with possible corner suite) and sending a limo to get him at the airport. I also have about $450 in free play and food as well at the Nugget. My D offer includes Limo, free play/promo chips(host has been mum on the amount), and food. My Delano offer is mainly room and a few bucks in resort credits and and free play.(it was a mailer) The room looks really cool with a great view looking up the strip.

    The to Do List:

    1.) Have a grade A time with Mike from VMB. I got the chance to spend a day with him last year (see avatar) and had a terrific time. I saw that he cancelled his June trip. I reached out and made him an offer he couldn't refuse for an impromptu July trip!

    2.) Play the new Simpsons slot machine. I have watched a lot of vids on it and to say it's not yielding a lot of winners would be a mild understatement. Hopefully I will find a loose one to have fun on.

    3.) Give the D and Nugget 4 hours a day of play each. (Free bet blackjack and dice at the D.....Bac, dice, and BJ at the Nugget) I will also fill the down time with plenty of slots.

    4.) Have a yellow chip session on the Blackjack tables. Last July I had a yellow chip moment, but went 2k, 2k, 3k......all losses. Soooooooo looking for an upgrade this trip.

    5.) Smoke plenty of cigars. Going to check out the cigar shop in Binions for the first time. Cigar recommendations are certainly welcome.

    6.) Keep a nice daily buzzzzzz! ........Alcohol buzz!

    I had to check the bag because of the quick light charcoal.....

    My last trip I had a roll of 7.5k......I had just ordered a new boat and funds were a little tight. This trip? Funds aren't tight and will be taking 15k of funny money to go to work with. Boat has been shipped and should be picking it up once I get back to Texas. Ranger is sending me a 2018 as apposed to a 2017.....pretty excited about that development too.


    I just got the "time to check in" text from Allegiant.

    Wonder Woman, Vito Corleone, and what looks like a Pedro Serrano (possibly Jobu) T-Shirt in the hookah luggage. Well done!!! Can't wait to get this week rolling. See ya at the GN 8:00 pm-ish.

    I'll be there next week too, but I'll be downtown while you're on the strip. Sounds like you guys will have a blast.

    Mr J in town?

    Linda Carter hasn't aged a lick.

    I'll have to follow the cigar trail to deliver the Bucks Future ticket, but my olfactory sense isn't the greatest.

    Safe travels, my man.
