    My Trip Report

    I’ve been coming into town for over 20 years starting in the mid 90’s when I was in college. I’ve been a low roller, mid roller, kinda high roller. I have stories about hookers and blow, getting robbed, getting in fights, big scores, big losses and big swings. I’ve had boring trips and trips I haven’t slept for 2-3 days. I thought I might share one of my trip stories from time to time. They might be boring ...but I also have some that are quite R rated, some NC-17...


    So with that here is a quick one. About 10-15 years ago I was sitting in the bellagio sportsbook bar and I had weed on me. Now weed is no big deal but before the kids got spoiled having weed in Vegas wasn’t so easy. Anyway I’m sitting next to this couple of elderly folks from the Bay Area and I mention to the older gentleman I was going to my room to smoke a joint. He asked if he could join me. I was pretty shocked. These guys were RV’ing around the west and they seemed affluent and educated. Not the typical activity for a 60-70 year old gentleman. But of course I accepted. We went upstairs and this guy starts chatting about how he traveled around with the dead in his youth. I’m a bit of a deadhead and we struck up a conversation.


    So we head back down to the bar where his wife is running the video poker and he mentions my affinity for the dead. His wife light up like a firefly and let’s it be known they traveled QUITE extensively with the band. So much that they invite me back to their RV to listen to some master tapes.

    now this is really a weird scene. These people have money. I can tell. They are older, educated, very personable. I’m not physically in danger with these folks. And when I’m in Vegas I always travel solo and throw myself into any possibility. So after some thought and kore conversation I accept.

    We cab to some RV park...their RV is easily half a million dollars. It’s insane. Like a mobile penthouse. They put on some music, spark one....through conversation I come to the clear impression these folks made their money making and selling LSD for decades with the dead. Elderly outlaws if you will.

    do I drop acid with the senior citizens in this random RV park at one in the morning in Vegas when offered? You’re goddam right I did. Night of my life hearing stories about their experiences with the band, their life on the road. Peaking as the sun rose sitting outside with a lovely campfire. Went back to the hotel with my soul fed and an amazing Vegas story to tell.


    Next time on spudlink adventures I’ll tell you how to get rid of a hooker in your room when you’ve both been doing way too much cocaine!

    I LOVE Vegas stories no matter how old they might be. I started going to Vegas in the 90's too. I don't have any stories as good as this one though!!!!

    In another life I was staying at Bellagio and met a comely lass at the bar. Entertaining working ladies was never really my bag, but she was fresh and cute and fun and it was late so...whatever. Up we went.

    as soon as we got up there she breaks out the cocaine. Ok. I’m not a prude. Let’s get this party started baby. We indulge. Me a little. She a lot. A LOT. Hoovering lines like a dyson.

    20 minutes into this scene of sin her personality really starts to change. Pacing the room, cursing, getting agitated. She uses the restroom, comes out and goes right to her purse and after a quick glance claimed 2000 dollars is missing and I stole it.

    I laughed at first, thought she was joking. Miss...let me explain I’m a gentleman. I would never, ever steal from someone. Especially not someone with such a difficult job. No dice. She’s getting pissed, starting to yell at me.
    Then she picks up her phone...wildly pacing the room and tells whomever is on the other line that she is in a room and the guy robbed her and will he come up and help her get her money back. I started to get a little nervous. This was getting hairy.

    then she made the mistake of telling me I was going to have a gun in my face if I don’t cough up two grand. I’m freaking. Do I leave the room? well...little miss sniffs a lot went back to her marching powder and I saw my opportunity. There was her purse.

    In a moment of inspiration I grabbed the purse and opened the room door. She dashed for me to stop me....but not before I flung the purse...open...down the hall. “Hey there is your cash, I exclaimed” Shit started flying everywhere including...her cash. As she dashed into the hall in a panic I simply walked out with her, down the hall and to the elevator downstairs. And when I got back to my room later there was a big lipstick X on the door.


    She did happen to leave a huge bag of the yam yam in my room. Small consolation prize for the trouble.

    Great stories! Keep 'em coming! 2nd one is like something out of a movie.

    I wonder if her change in personality was part of the plan, and if so, how many times this act worked on others for "repaying stolen cash"?

    Glad you were able to calm the young lass without more drama. Some of the Hooker Stories in the After Dark section do not end so well.

    Looking forward to more of your stories. Thanks for posting!

    My first trip to Vegas was in 1994. I wasn't even 21 years old yet. I went there to see the Grateful Dead at Sam Boyd Stadium. We stayed at the relatively recently opened Luxor. I fell in love with Vegas on that trip and have gone back as often as possible ever since.

    eagerly awaiting a Cosmo story like the old commercials..
    "The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. It's hard not to be intrigued by a Sin City hotel with the tagline “just the right amount of wrong.” Perhaps you've seen the hotel's TV commercial, featuring pant-less bellhops, bustier-clad women, bedroom photo shoots, and animals crashing a suite party."

    Don't hate the player, hate the game?
    At what cost is your own agency?
    Go get em buddy.:thumbsup::beer:
