    Howdy!!

    It's been a while since we've done a trip report because, it's been a while since we took a gambling trip. OK, that's not entirely true. There was a disaster of a trip in April to Golden Nugget Lake Charles which included (not in any specific order) a disaster at valet where we unloaded our bags and then I had to walk them up to the front of the lane because the valet attendant did not want to walk back to us, over 1 hour to check in, a leaky tub which drained water all over our carpet (and soaked my clothes), a broken toilet, the worst cabana service ever, a lost food order at the pool, a messed up dinner order, an (almost) fight with a family over bar sitting (we had reservations, they did not), and much confusion on my final bill. To be honest I was going to write a recap but was just too tired after that trip.

    But, we broke even on the gambol so not all was lost. Next time to Lake Charles however, we're going back to L'Auberge. Golden Nugget can keep it. (It's not worth the prices they charge for poor service TBH, very disappointing.

    But this is a new trip and a new start at a property we know well. River Spirit Resort and Casino in Tulsa, OK.

    My host had some difficulty getting us a room because of a couple of concerts this weekend, but he came through. The only question now is what room we get. The reservation says "SIG (signature suite) or best available" and to be honest I really have no preference. A free room is a free room. I'm not picky.

    We also have dinner reservations at the Steak house on Friday, and a pool cabana reserved for Friday during the day.

    In between all of this will be as much video poker as I can squeeze in the gaps to continue to receive comps at this really nice Tribal resort.

    I've had good trips with gambling wins there in the past, and good trips with gambling losses. Every time we go there however we have a LOT of fun regardless of how the luck is running.

    Our flight is tomorrow at 1:25, so we'll be up and updating on this tonight as we start to get ready for a quick, fun trip.

    1 more sleep and 2/3rds of a day in the office to go.

    Healthy casino eve dinner. Stuffed portobello mushroom caps. Obviously a grilling beer is in order.

    Our early check in for Southwest did not pay off. B 11 & 12. Guess we're buying up.

    Gambling is cold so far. Only one 4 Oak to show for two hours play. Only down $200 though. Dinner break and then back at it.

    Last night gambling stayed cold, but the drinks were good. Pool cabana today, take a step back from continually missing 3OAK draws. This is pretty much all that happened last might. We wound up in our room drinking white Russians. 20220519_230654.jpg 20220519_231431.jpg
