    My Trip Report

    Part 3.0 of our group trip is about to get underway. And in order to protect the innocent names have been changed.

    This is a group trip that we take every 2 years and fun fact v2.0 of this extravaganza left for Vegas exactly 2 years ago today (thanks for the memory Facebook). We celebrate various achievements such as retirements, birthdays, promotions, anniversaries, it’s a Tuesday, we don’t have high standards here folks.

    This iteration could be fairly crazy as MOST, but not all (I’m in that category) are educators. In case you’ve been living under a rock, things haven’t been the greatest for teachers this past 18 months. But today they get back to normal.

    So we have a good core group of returning degenerates and some n00bs too. But we have an Ogre. We will call him Shrek. He didn’t come in 2019 as he was busy getting a new knee and he’s under 45. He’s had both replaced. Life is good for the bionic man of the swamp.

    Shrek’s loyal pal Donkey is coming on this trip. There was 50-1 odds that he was going to go, but he pulled the trigger in March and bought his plane ticket.

    More to come with the various people and shenanigans but I’m waiting for Shrek to pick me and the Mrs up. This probably won’t be live by any stretch, but I’m excited!!!

    I still can’t top what @Not at the table Carlos did to start his last trip. Jesus that was just beautiful.

    Lots of drinking, pool time and more drinking.

    even had somebody in the group get dealt a royal on DDB on $1. Wish it was me!!! But it wasn’t.

    crazy part is I’ve barely gambled. That changes tonight. May check out Resorts World.

    Going to the Garth Brooks concert at the Death Star (aka Allegiant Stadium) Saturday night
