    The yearly fall trip somehow got pushed up to the 100 degree days of August, so here we are on departure day.

    Participants: @C-Stud, @hbomb, and three other unnamed degenerates
    Goals: Winning trip, handpays, eat and drink with some variety (including some pizza), avoid being drawn into too much LIR

    Most of the crew is staying at Bellagio. When i called to book, i found out there's a huge Virtuoso travel agent conference this weekend, and Bellagio was almost sold out. They wanted $700 per night for a room on saturday. Absolute madness! I'm hoping @hbomb can meet some of the travel agents at the tables and sweet talk them into free rooms at various Four Seasons in the future.
    I then called Cosmo to use my yearly sterling free night. Oh, that's not available, and if you want two queen beds this weekend, it's going to cost $500+ per night. So here we are, i'm going to be sleeping on a bridge, hoping enough people put change in my hat that i can survive the weekend.

    In preparation for the trip, i gathered together my full net worth and took it to the bank to color up. I contemplated just carrying this around all weekend and letting the waitresses grab a handful for their tips, but thought better of it. 23 lbs of coins, and i'm ready to gamble! (the clorox in the background may come in handy too)

    I still have a day of work ahead of me, but hopefully @hbomb will be posting jackpot pics this afternoon. It's equally likely this is the last post of the TR. :)

    Good luck! Looking forward to your pics.

    Already having withdrawals....

    There's a few hundred bucks in that change container! Turn it into $2k.

    I always get excited when I see the views from the aisle seat right after landing
