First a disclaimer, this won’t be my normal overly detailed trip report. Not much went according to plan thanks to my travelling companion and it served to reaffirm my love of solo trips. I also managed to catch a cold the day before we left. That cut down on my drinking and my flirting as I was coughing and honking all over the damn place! Instead of a day-by-day format, I’ll do this trip report by categories so everyone can jump to the parts that interest them. As always I look forward to any questions and comments!
Me, the Diva. Early 40’s, 19th trip to Vegas in the past 14 years. Last 4 trips have been solo and I absolutely loved them. I pretty much stick to slots and VP and bring a daily gambling budget of $300-500.
PFS, my friend and co-worker. Same age, this was her 3rd trip to Vegas, her 2nd with me. We travel together a lot (Alaska, London, Nova Scotia, Ireland, Greece) and never have an issue. Well this time around, PFS had (a) no money and (b) a new man whom she texted with CONSTANTLY over our 5 days in Vegas. When I say constantly, I mean “took her phone with her when she showered/slept with the phone in the bed/never once turned the damn thing off.” More on this later.
