    My coin in for the trip was $4,043.50. I only played in the mornings and at night when the wife and kid were sleeping. I didn't play the last night.

    Feast Buffet at Green Valley Ranch for lunch. $15.99, but if you have a players card it is only $11.99. No fancy food like Bacchanal or Wicked Spoon, but plenty of choices and a good value.

    Nice report and great pictures, that tram between Mirage and TI must be the best maintained thing in Las Vegas, It seems to be closed more that it runs.

    It was just refurbished and reopened not long ago. I have never come across the Mandalay Bay or Aria trams being down during operating hours but this one is always down it seems.

    The express tram at MB seems to go down semi-frequently in the morning in my experience. But the local seems to make two stops at Excalibur.

    Great TR as always flig, really enjoying seeing all the photos you post.

    I would also say that at 4K coin in over 4-5 nights, that's really impressive to get a comped Vdara suite. I should apparently take my action over to MGM lol.
