    My Trip Report

    Bags are packed and I get to leave work early today to take the kiddo to Oklahoma then the wife and I fly out of Dallas nonstop to Vegas tomorrow!

    It’s the return trip of 2021! Last time I didn’t finish our trip report after the second night. That’s because senior alcohol got the better of us and day 3 was miserable for both of us.

    Ok so lesson learned! You’d think after 40 years of living on this earth I’d learn to hydrate more. Anywho a champ gets back on the horse and rides again. This trip we are staying at Park MGM. I wanted to stay at NYNY but my comps only offered Park Luxor Mandalay or Excal for this weekend. Park is close enough to NYNY plus I’m slowly digging the Park atmosphere just haven’t stayed there yet.

    So I found out yesterday despite being vaxed we will have to wear masks come Friday. This is the only time I’m going to gripe because I’m not going to let some paper on my face ruin my Vegas!

    The first night I should get to meet up with a dear friend of mine who is there now and his last night will be our first night. It’s his first ever trip to Vegas and already I hear he’s hooked.

    ok folks see you on the trail soon!

    Yeah the masks are a disappointment but we can’t control what we can’t control. Have a good trip as well. I’m almost done with my shortened work day so can’t wait to start the vacation!

    Ok made it to Oklahoma! One wake up and I’ll be over to Love Field in Dallas. First obligatory stop will be a Buc-cees for some awesome breakfast. Southwest has already confirmed our A boarding and I’m hoping it’s not a sold out flight

    Oh man, talk about a blast from the past. I can’t remember where, but in the mid 80’s I had the privilege of stopping there on a road trip with the grandparents. Was completely skeptical, but damn that was good!

    So, it’s time to get at it! Have a tremendous time and don’t stress too much about the live updates. We’ll take anything, in any form! :thumbsup:
