    My Trip Report

    I am headed to Vegas for my solo “Birthday” trip. My birthday is in March, but I plan the trip based on other trips and my schedule. If you have followed any of my other reports, you will know I do keep this live, with as many pictures as possible.

    I will also be posting videos on our YouTube channel, of the rooms, pools, buffets etc. Some will be during the week, others after depending on if I can sleep in or not.

    I will be staying at the Vdara for Sunday to Thursday in a Studio Fountain View Suite comp plus resort fees. I have $50 resort credit and some free play, it said to call and is most likely $50. I am then staying at the Signature at MGM Grand in a 1 Bedroom Balcony suite, paying around $100 plus fees.

    I am getting a rental car because I like the freedom of going around.

    I will mostly be playing poker tournaments, with slot play in between.

    I have a direct flight from PHL leaving at 10:50.

    When are they going to stop randomly giving people pre check? Slows everything down cause they don't know what they are doing

    Hey Flig, looks like you had a delay. Flight radar shows you taking off about 11:30. Have a nice flight.

    No line for rental car shuttle. Very hot out. They moved the shuttle in closer.
