    I forgot to start this before I left the office so this is from the gate at Bush Intercontinental as I await my first flight to LAX and then onto Vegas. I'll land at 1145 this evening and I've got a ride lined up with one of the Vegas cabbies on Twitter. I was worried about the cab line so I hit him up.

    First four nights are at Palazzo on a comp offer with a little chunk of free play and a good credit. The final two nights are at Mirage also on a comp with the same modest free play and food credit.

    I took the connecting flight because it was $350 cheaper than the nonstop. Hopefully no delays or lost bag. I'm itching to have Nike's on the ground.

    Tonight after check in I'll go to Venetian's book and get down tomorrow's bets in case I have issues in the morning waking up or if I don't go to bed at all. I'm gonna try to stick to a normal schedule the first night so I'm not a zombie tomorrow.

    I'll be meeting a customer of mine tonight to shoot some craps and after that I'll hit the rack. I have a reservation at Mon Ami and Art of Shavingtomorrow morning.

    Bankroll is $8k and I plan to play the same games I normally do. A shit ton of craps, Spanish 21 and of course the NBA and NCAA games. I posted my leans on the games in the sportsbook thread and I'll finalize them on the plane.

    At some point I'll be meeting up with Boosted, Frosty, Jer and several other guys. Two of my buddies from back home are already in Vegas so I'll be hanging with them too.

    I'll do my best to keep it LIVE and up to date.

    Here's to starting off this trip like I did July's with a helluva first night.

    Let's gooooooooo

    Thanks Geoff and Hank!

    This is weird - the gate is virtually empty about 40min prior to boarding. However there are 51 people on standby and 30 on the upgrade list.

    Plane isn't full but still to only have a handful of people here is weird.
