We (a friend of mine and I) left LA at 1 PM on Tuesday March 27th.
Those of you who live in S. California, already know that around noon on Tuesday, we had a storm (rain and cold weather and wind). Temps dropped to 50s (from 70)
Anyways drivin in the wind and rain was okay, but I had to pay more attention to other drivers!!!!!
Strange thing was when I was getting close to Baker, I realized that the temperature has dropped to 30s!!!!!!by the time we were outside the Baker, it started to snow for the next 20 miles, and then temps went up to normal (50s).
Anyways we were staying at Orleans (A first for me), so I was kinda nervous.
They also charge $5 a day resort Fee
To my surprise, the room was clean, the beds were normal, and furnitures were the usuall chair and desk and sofa......
TV was a regular TV (not Plasma!!!!)
The door to the bathroom was a sliding door
They had a coffe maker, ironing board and a safe in the room.
The iron was chained to the ironing board (never seen that before)
In the 4 days and 3 nights that I was there, I ate 3 buffet meals
breakfast at Orleans (cheap and good)
Lunch at South Point (in expensive and okay)
Dinner at Rio (expensive and over-priced, I rate that just good)
The rest of the meals we went to restaurants, and ate some better quality food.
As for gambling, I played at Orleans, Rio, South Point, Wynn, Mandalay Bay and Venetian.
On penny slots I broke even
On video poker I lost (didn't play too long, I guess)
Black jack table I lost everything, including my shirt, LOL
But Won at craps table.
Considering my big Loss at the BJ table, the whole trip cost me $600 (including Gas, food and one night hotel stay)
Overall, was a great trip, and now I am planning my next trip in May or June.
