    My Trip Report

    Got to Vegas yesterday morning... scored a cool upgrade with our rental, a Ford Mustang 5.0... played mostly at Wynn then Mirage for awhile, slots were tight and blackjack kicked my ass... but tons of drinks and a whole Lotta fun! Man I'm happy to be here!

    I'll try to update every now and again but must likely won't be a play by play. Plan to see Mat Franco and Michael Jackson One. Outside of that drinks and gambling... and probably a boot out to Hoover Dam and possibly Grand Canyon...gotta give that Mustang a workout!

    Tried to upload photo but no go...I'll try again later...

    I drank at San Francisco Airport and it was only 10AM... Of course I missed my flight to Vegas which is why I started drinking :drunk:

    2 drinks at the pool cost $40 with tip... so they opened up their poolside blackjack and I played thinking drinks will be cheaper that way. Well we each got a drink and I proceeded to take a $250 beating... So my plan backfired, drinks at poolside blackjack are more expensive lol

    We are getting cleaned up and heading out for a bite then to various Caesars properties for their quest for rewards... not sure exactly how it works but I'll try to do the 25 credits at as many as I can and we'll see what happens!

    Currently at P-Ho. .. got slot badges at Harrahs, Linq, Flamingo, Cromwell, Ballys, and Paris. Played NJ at Harrahs and I was sure I got the 25 tier credits, but found out at the total rewards desk at Cromwell that I got 24 lol They didn't give me the 1 fkn point haha

    Quick update... I got the badges for the slots at all the properties except for Rio, might stop quick at some point to get that. The table points are a bit of a mystery to try to get, even when talking to pit bosses they don't know how long I would have to play at $25 bj to get 25 points. I was missing 1 point at Harrahs but I stopped back and played for a bit again so I should have that one. Played bj at Caesars and ended up losing about $150 and I don't think I got enough for the badge there. Tried Flamingo bj and took a quick beating losing $300 in about 4 minutes, so no table badge there either.
    Outside of that we had a bite at the Beer Park at Paris and sat on the railing overlooking the Strip which was nice. Food was good. Played for awhile at Wynn before bed, won a bit at bj then hit about $500 on a buffalo machine to help stop the bleeding of funds.
    Today is gf's special day so I am giving her care blanched on what we do...we're at the pool now (lovin' it) and we have tickets to see Mat Franco tonight. We are also going to take a spin on the high Roller at some point today and the plan is to use the 2 free buffets at Wynn for dinner. They were part of the offer when we booked.
    It's our last day at Wynn...moving to Delano tomorrow for the second half of the trip.

    Good luck, JR! I have had a Mustang convertible many times in Vegas (but only the V6 :( ) But if you haven't already, using the steering wheel controls, go through the menus and there is a thing called 'Track Apps' that has a 0-60 timer built into it. It can either use a drag tree that comes on the screen, or will start timing as soon as you mash the gas. I was like a kid at a candy store and went through a ton of gas!!! Obviously works very well on the south strip area south of Mandalay where traffic isn't as dense. If you are heading down that way and haven't been, M Resort is a great place to check out. Amazing Property!
