    So I giggled a little bit when typing the thread title and realizing we come home on 6/9. I think I've been following Vital Vegas on Twitter for too long.

    So after just two and a half weeks since our last trip we're returning to Vegas. @MrsPTD and I had our previous trip planned since Super Bowl weekend but then a couple of months ago my boss invited me to go with him for the Mortgage Mastermind conference. Who am I to turn down a free Vegas trip?

    I am flying out at 9 and arriving at 2:20 after an out of the way layover in Seattle. I will be staying at the Palms for the first three nights (where the conference is) and @MrsPTD will join me on Thursday night. After the conference is over on Friday we're switching to the Cromwell for the final two nights of the trip.

    Cromwell is our favorite casino for table games and we've never had the chance to stay there before so we're really excited about that.

    This report may be a little light on updates for the first few days because of the conference and the fact that I'm saving most of the bankroll for the end of the trip. I'll post what I can though and try to keep it entertaining.

    The plan:

    Tuesday: Mastermind dinner for the top 1% loan originators in the country.

    Wednesday: Conference stuff.

    Thursday: Conference stuff and the arrival of @MrsPTD. We're also going to a cocktail party hosted by a mortgage insurance company at a suite in the Palms. Will try to get pictures of the insane suite they've reserved for this.

    Friday: Final day of conference and switching to Cromwell. @MrsPTD will be spending the day at the Encore spa. I also have a surprise planned for us on Friday night.

    Saturday: VF M&G/HL pull @ Cosmo. Really excited about that. Dinner reservations @ Giada to use the $100 dining credit that came with the offer.

    Sunday: Early flight home.

    Since we have an early flight on Sunday and I have to work on Monday we're going to try our best to stay on our normal schedule. I also plan on winning back my losses from the last trip. Bringing a $3k bankroll ($400 for the HL pull).

    Vegas baby!

    Good luck and have a great time. I've always wanted to conference in Vegas. I've told everyone that I would attend all of the sessions I was supposed to, I just could not guarantee what condition I would be in when I attended.

    Have fun & win, interested on your comments on Palms, if downtown goes crazy after adding 2,000 rooms in 2020, may consider Palms, stayed there 10 years ago, it was cool. Remember Win.

    I'm really excited for the conference actually. Lots of great speakers and topics. Darren Hardy is the keynote so that should be cool. I'll try to be on my best behavior!

    Thanks! I'll make sure to post pics of the room, haven't seen many on here since the remodel. Lots of great restaurant options it seems though and the table minimums should be reasonable.

    Certainly consciousness would be required, however sobriety might be optional!!

    Sounds like you might actually enjoy your conference time, and then you get to enjoy Vegas time. A win/win!!!

    I’m curious on if Palms is busy or not. I’ve heard it’s much slower than expected after the remodel.

    We’ve never stayed at Cromwell. The rooms look nice. I’ll be interested to know if it’s quiet enough for you and Mrs. PTD. The service is so good there, as far as drink service and Eatwell. Hard to pass it up!

    It my experience, when you do a conference followed by vacation, it feels like 2 completely different trips. It’s a great way to get your flights paid! I hope you get to squeeze in a little play time after obligations!

    Have a great time!

    Lol very good point!

    I'll be a good boy for this one, especially since my boss is here with me haha.

    Thanks!

    Yeah it still hasn't really sunk in that I'm back in Vegas lol.

    It's pretty busy right now but I'm assuming that's because of the conference. Last time we stopped by it was pretty slow.

    So I actually got a room in the Palms Place tower because they're so packed for the conference. A bit of a walk to get there but I'm pleasantly surprised!

    Finished up $2 after the first VP session lol. Going to get registered for the conference and then head over to dinner. Apparently registration opened later than I thought so I had a little time for some VP haha.

    Well registration was super fast so I played a little more VP. Ended up down $103 on that session with no picture worthy hits.

    Time for dinner!

    My boss won an award for our team finishing in the top 200 in the nation so that was pretty cool.

    Going downstairs to play some table games with my boss. Hopefully I'll have some cup porn to share in a bit!

    In for $100 and out for $100 at blackjack after about 2 1/2 hours, many drinks and lots of fun. No chip porn haha but we had a great time! 3-2 for $10 even during the conference which was surprising.
