I want to write something poetic to start this TR but not much is coming to mind right now except to say the long road home really applies. We last left Vegas 874 LONG days ago. Lots has changed since our last pilgrimage to the motherland, my daughter has graduated from college, we became grandparents, we brought yet another rescue dog into our lives and other misc less milestone type events. This trip took shape after our late March 2020 fell to pieces for obvious reasons. We wrote off any travel outside the country in 2020 and up until the Canadian mandatory hotel quarantine restrictions were lifted. As soon as I knew that was a reality it was time to book. What will this TR entail? Let's see. Where we will stay: 3 nights at Ballys. Jubilee King Strip View. 4 nights at Lux. Tower Premium King Room. Where we plan on eating: Bellagio MyVegas buffet BOGO Peppermill Mon Ami Gabi (a first for us) Circus Circus Steakhouse (another first), shout out to @ffejry for this one Excalibur MyVegas buffet BOGO Ri Ra (NO trip is complete without this for us) Nine Five Irishmen Other misc stops for food but the above are mostly likely What we plan on doing: Slots Drinks Slots Drinks Laying down at least some football action Fantasy at Lux (Did I mention drinks and slots)??? Maybe a stop DT Where we planning on visiting: Most properties on the strip. We tend to wander from property to property a lot. Notable here will be a stop by Resorts World (not overly excited about it, but we want to see it). Our first visit to Ellis Island You are likely to see lots of blurry pictures that are alcohol induced, also likely more than you fair share of profanity (I do not possess any filter of any sort). Wheels up tomorrow at 10:15am with any luck. First stop will be Stage Door to stock up on essentials. After that who the hell knows. Obligatory pictures will follow of the sad faces on our dogs before we leave. Here is our grand daughter from this past Saturday when we had her for the night. She is perched on my truck having a great look around. A bit of a teaser of some of the types of pictures you might encounter on this TR. This is my wife on our first night in 2019, I'd say she was 3 sheets to the wind, but it was more like 46 sheets to the wind. In this particular picture she had just sat in an ashtray and I was trying to tell her so. She was telling me that she didn't give a f__k. Who's ready for some fun?
