    I think this is the first Vegas trip without being approached by a worker since my very first ever trip nearly 13 years ago

    I love how I have the volcano view but the entire time I've been here, room or on strip, I haven't seen it go off once.

    Both Cal and mirage, I had end of hallway. No more of that twice in a trip. No more. Very annoying at this point

    It ended up being 5 bucks when it looked like it could be 150 or 1500 not sure. Need to look at pics. But I think I posted it

    Sorry it wasn't more live but @semicharmed is super fun! Recommended guy.

    We are thinking winter meet up but not sure if we can coordinate. We will let you guys know. I'm thinking first week Jan. He is before that.

    We will see what's up.

    With about 13 hours left, I hope you guys had fun reading and following along. I didn't find it hard at all to do a live tr. Maybe because solo? Who knows but the feedback has been wonderful. I did promise it wouldn't be as epic as @notfromconcentrate but he set the bar super high and I tried to follow it.

    Hope to see you at the end of the month for a drink or two buddy. In fact I have an idea. Pm me

    Been kind of up since 545 am. Sun is up and keeping me up . Like a trooper, I just got downstairs around 7. Getting breakfast and iced coffee.

    Not sure if nap or pool, but want to at least get my things together so there is no rush later.

    I'm exhausted

    Didn't realize myvegas was Sunday to Thursday. I knew that but it didn't click. However the nice lady gave me a pass for breakfast based on my play

    I can't do buffets the way I used to. No more 3 plates. Barely can do 2. So one was enough today. It was not food porn worthy. Wouldn't pay to eat there. But at least it was free

    Didn't play yet. Not sure if I am. Heading back to room. Starbucks line was way too long for me. Going to pack up then hit up the pool for a little bit I think

    There is something cool about following along from semi sober to drunk... it kinda makes me feel like i am in Vegas too. That feeling when you are the right amount of drunk and just having the time of your life..i really love this report.

    That's weird....no where on the myvegas redemption policy does it say the Mirage buffet award is only Sunday thru Thursday. Something's amiss here. Did you show you the policy? Thanks.....I have two for my trip next week.
     
    Thank you VMB members.

    Don't know about you, but I have probably lost more money playing during those "killing time until checkout" hours than all other losses put together!!! Have done this countless times, and can't recall every breaking even or coming out ahead. Yet, I still keep trying! LOL!!! For example, on my last solo trip in June, I was dead even for the trip, with a couple of hours to go until I had to check out and head for the airport. I thought about taking a nap which I should have, since I was so tired), but decided to play instead, and lost $200.

    Based on your username, I assume you have been to mirage many times. I would do aria breakfast over mirage if you can. Those red velvet pancakes were awesome. Mirage was basic but it was fine cuz free
