    My Trip Report

    Booked a last minute flight tonight and should be heading out there early tomorrow. Staying at the flamingo. Not sure what to expect but at least the casinos are open this time....

    Luck on my side early. Got on both flights and avoided the dreaded middle seat. Never know what you’ll get flying standby with 20 people in front of you. Flights pretty full

    Finally crossed over into Nevada. Should be landing shortly. Always forget how long of a flight this is

    Just got into the flamingo and was immediately stopped for not wearing a mask. Apparently it’s state law now to wear one in businesses. They had me stand in a spot prior to check in where my temperature was taken before I could get into line. Got a feeling this is going to be an interesting trip.

    Looking forward to seeing what you think of the “New” Vegas right now.

    Only scheduled to be here 48 hours and tbh I’m a little worried they’re going to close down and I’m going to be stuck here

    Stopped by the pool. Apparently they were suppose to reopen at noon today but still closed. They say they’ll open tomorrow. We will see

    Pool "re-open" why did they close it? Read in some TR it has been open every day....like a week or so ago....Will be pretty miserable if not open in late August...that is why we decided to stay there..

    Good luck!! Have a great time, and thanks for the updates.

    TBH - as irrational as it may be, this concern of yours is the main thing having me considering putting off my trip scheduled for next week. I don't want to get stuck out there, or get there and they shut everything down.

    The last shut down, they announced and didn't actually shut stuff down for 3 or 4 days after the announcement. With the implementation of masks, they have to give it time before taking a different course.

    Casinos in Arizona are still open and look at the shit show that state is in right now. Same with Florida.

    If I remember correctly, they announced shutting down on a Monday or Tuesday and properties had to close by Friday

    FYI got to wear a mask even at the bar when drinking. Asked how I was suppose to drink and apparently just need it around the chin area still. Not sure what good this does, but oh well
