TR 2/11 - 2/15 part 1

This is my first time to post a TR and I hope its not to long.

Day 1 arrive America West 45 mins early and sister and I are off to Harrahs to check bags and money as we cannot check in at 8am. First stop after drop off of bags is Ellis Island, use the ACG coupons and have a great lunch and free drinks. Leave the Island to walk the strip and hit a few casinos. No wins so we go to IP and call sis's teenage kids and wave to them into the web cam out front. (we would end up doing this everyday and having fun we random people on the strip also stopping to wave). Finally get the Carnival Tower at 4pm and go to take a nap. Up at 6pm and on the Duece to downtown. Eat at California and prime rib was great. Go to Mermaids to get some wicked drinks and off to the Nugget to listen to band and play some slots. No winners so Duece it back to Bellegio and play 3 nickle machines and just drink. To bed at 2am.

Day 2 Up at 10am and Duece it to NYNY and MGM to use our free play and finally sister hits for $250 so things are looking up. Take shuttle to GVR and 2 spins of Big Time Pay later I have $1500 in my pocket and no they cannot have their money back so we just play nickles and pennies till buffet time. The buffet here was great and then shuttle back to strip. Go back to Harrahs and wait for my sisters sister in laws to get there from the airport. They arrive and want to go to IP. Well that didn't last long as it smells in there and we cannot handle it. So off to Bellegio again, play and drink there and then back to Harrahs to sleep at 3am.

This is getting long so I will post days 3 & 4 on different post.

great win at GVR! Where did you get the shuttle--for some reason, I thought they had canceled it unless you are a guest.

You get the shuttle for Mandalay Bay and they will take anyone but only guest and players get preference. It was full on the way back but they put us on first as we were their first and had played there. They were very nice and it is a beautiful property.
