    VPFree actually says no 9/6 at that level in Vegas. South Point has it at bars up to $2. Plaza at bars up to $1. On floor up to $2. Whore's Shoe Hammond has it for $25 a point. So I probably go with Long Bar at D at $5 since the royal will be progressive and they don't have a ticket system yet. Wtf, Derek?

    As fascinating as this academic discussion on VP is, and which seems to pop often from the same source lol, D- lets see some wins and binge drinking!

    Haven’t heard from ya all day, I’m guessing there’s another Royal on the horizon?!

    Don't let @tringlomane sell himself short. He's a high-IQ video poker savant.

    Hey everybody! I will post a few pics. I was in bed early last night (between 2-3 am) and got a fairly early start to the day. I made it to San Luis Obispo around 7:00 pm today. Left Vegas around 11:30. I took a road that was of the beaten track. I think it was 166 West? @TIMSPEED was helping me decide the route. It ended up being a two lane highway most of the way and it was a really nice drive. It was also Tims recommendation to stop at Avila Beach on the way here. So I did. I haven't left the room. I am pretty tired. Going to crash early. I still don't know where I will park the car tomorrow when the day is over.I don't really want to stay in the absolute mess that is San Francisco. Other than the PCH and Bug Sur, I don't know what tomorrow may look like.

    JR is arriving Wednesday. I believe she is unduly concerned with the border guys questioning her travel plans. She is a dual citizen and whether she is traveling for fun or family reasons, they will let her come and go as she pleases. Those of us with only one passport are the people that are having restrictions.

    So, this wild ride will continue with some gambling still pending albeit. not the crazy mess that took place in Vegas. And I want to give a shout out to @Not at the table Carlos and his crew. Good guys and a lot of fun. NATTC might be louder and drunker than me and that is saying something. Was a lot of fun meeting up with you guys. In fact, they sent me a pic of Quad Aces and a pic of one of the guys hitting a Royal upstairs at The D today.

    So a couple of quick pictures before bed.....

    Your in my neighborhood of Cali now! Pismo Beach is really great too, the clam chowder bread bowls at Splash Cafe are the freaking best. On your way north on 1 Morro Bay and Cayucos are two cool little coast towns.

    Ahhhhh yes staying an extra night in Vegas and leaving on Monday was the second best idea behind my driving to Reno on Sunday idea haha.

    Great trip so far!

    It’s too bad Flint’s BBQ in Oakland isn’t open anymore. Legendary Q joint back in the day.

    This clam chowder bowl is getting my attention. I just woke up and I am starving. That's my favourite soup.

    Okay, I just looked at the cafe's web site. That clam chowder bowl looks heavenly. This is gonna happen. I will let you know how this and Pismo Beach goes because how can Bugs Bunny be wrong?

    I pick up JR in Oakland tomorrow and then we drive to Tahoe/Reno for four more days. My liver is getting a much needed break right now.
