I have just booked a flight to Las Vegas leaving late night Saturday October 9 and returning Tuesday October 19.
In the past, I have driven out for a combined three or so weeks of Vegas plus visiting family. This year, my dad has to have some minor surgery. Completely nothing to worry about that will likely be undergone with local anesthesia. However, the timing makes a 2+week trip to Vegas during the WSOP awkward. So, as a compromise, I decided to book a shorter trip of ten days, targeting some of the tournaments I most want to play. Then, I might go out again in November. Depends on if I don’t hate myself after the October trip or if I really hate myself, probably.
I have never stayed this long without a car and the insane rental prices means I am going todo it this time. My stay is too long for me to put all my clothes in just a backpack and the airline I am flying charges for carry-ons. However, for slightly more than a carry-on, I can also get a checked bag and seat selection, so my plan is thus: I am going to bring food in my bags to cut down on expenses since I have that extra space anyways. Don’t expect much food porn unless I run good. Still, willing to meet up with UPers who are in Vegas at the same time.
I expect to be staying at some combination of the Rio and Gold Coast. I am considering the @TJ_Eckleburg12 plan of arriving Saturday night after midnight and playing until early check-in, which I am willing to pay for.
