Just got back from Vegas this afternoon. The wind, the wind!!! Yesterday I drove through snow and sleet at Flagstaff, Arizona.....then a few miles East of Flagstaff, the wind was 2x worse than here. Saw several 18wheelers flipped over from the wind. By the time we hit Gallup, New Mexico the wind had died down a little.


Did go on the Skywalk......scary, but cool.

Did drive over the Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge....the walls on the edges were to high to see over it.

Didn't ride any rides on the Stratosphere!!!!

***Did get to see to Vince Neil of Motley Crue*** He has a tatoo shop on Las Vegas Blvd. In the casino...O'sheas. It was about 11:30pm, my wife was playing blackjack and I needed to stretch and walk around. I walked into his shop and looked at the sample books of tatoo designs. I heard someone call out..."Yell, if you need help". Looked up and it was Vince.....getting ready to tatoo a HOT blonde in the front area of his store....windows on the sidewalk....let people see him helping tatoo people.


Went to many casinos.........ate LOTS of food from great restaurants in the casinos and went to two of our favorite buffets. Really, the ONLY buffets we'll eat at. The Bellagio buffet(fantastic) and the Paris buffet(excellent).

**Collected some chips from the Sahara casino. It will shut down very soon.***

The Wynn was great as usual!!! I got to play golf and my wife loved the spa at the Wynn. When we went downtown...Freemont area, I had heard of this casino and wanted to collect a chip from it. El Cortez.

El Cortez is a fantastic old school Vegas style casino!!!! Quiet, clean, old school class!!! I bought a chip and the wife wanted to play the single deck blackjack. Man-oh-man........she made MONEY!!!! Every afternoon,around 3:00ish, we went there and she tripled her money!!! We couldn't believe it....the second night after we left...we started laughing....thought it was a dream!!! We'll be going back to the El Cortez!!!


We were out there a week but had to cut the second week short. My father-in-law is having heart surgery. So we came back.


Good to be home................................but, I already miss Vegas!!!

Single deck blackjack has the best odds, im surprised you found a casino crazy enough to have that in las vegas. I think Riverwind casino has 3 or 4 decks in it and i can double my money if I count cards a bit and card shark a little but it drains you mentally.

And I love buffets (not b/c I like to stuff myself but i like being able to taste a lot of stuff) so in your opinion which one was best?

im am such a foodie its ridiculous next time im in vegas im going straight to the bellagio as per cohiba's strong recommendation haha.

The buffet will be the main attraction for me and the blackjack will be my side dish.

haha! Glad you survived!! lol ... so are you gonna get a new toy anyway?? Even if you didn't ride the roller coaster. I think it is only fitting ... after having suffered through what sounds like a horribly boring trip!

Hope his surgery went okay.

Sounds like fun time..Have you the craps tables yet? Alot of excitement over any other game and you can be in the game for as little as $1 or as much as your willing to spend..
My wife is the one who usually walks out with money but she bets $5 a hand..I on the other hand get stupid after a come up and start betting $20-25 a hand and walk around the casino broke like a kids who ran out of quarters in an arcade.LOL
