    It’s been 20 months since our last Vegas trip and about a year since we last gambled, and lord have I’ve been jonesing for some VP. So today R and I took a drive to our nearest local, the illustrious Seminole Immokolee, which is about 30-40 mins from our house.

    We budgeted a mere $100 each, plus a third hundred “just in case”.

    A decent start so far, hit this about 6 hands in.

    Then tried a couple slots with no luck, and moved to another bar where I hit this on my 5th hand:

    Where’s the dang kicker???

    We are in our happy place, VP and a drink.

    Will share any other hits if we get them.

    Some observations: It’s fairly busy here. They have every other slot turned off, partitions on the table games, and mandatory masks. There’s a very visible security presence approaching anyone with their mask pulled down. Lots of people cleaning machines if they get so much as breathed on.

    No free drinks which sucks, but considering we have to drive home it’s probably just as well.

    Yay pointies!!
    Sooo glad for you both, that you were able to get away and enjoy VP again! It sounds like that casino is taking all of the necessary precautions so that you both feel ok with getting out.

    Great to see your faces again, albeit with masks, but hey, that's our world right now. One of these days we will get to play VP (and drink!) and laugh our butts off together in Vegas... till then, be safe and enjoy your mini getaways!!

    Hi Sue!! Yes...I am quite familiar with Seminole Immokolee!! I try to visit at least once during our annual trip to Naples Park. I’ve had some luck there as well. It has always been pretty crowded I think because there aren’t a lot of other venues in the area.

    Glad you were able to get out and play some!

    Just left. Walked in with $300 (which came from R winning it on a $20 scratch off actually), and left with:

    Some very nice wins, congrats. We've been there several times when we were in the area "shelling". Although its small and there were not a lot of VP machines (and the schedules were not that great), I still managed to win on every visit, but not by much.

    I would LOVE to get back to Vegas. We went from going 3-4 times per year to now coming up on 2 years since our last trip. That was due to a planned move from TX to FL and taking a year + off working. Now I'm in a new job and don't have vacation time accrued yet.

    I texted James from Bally's while we were at the casino, just to say hi and I hope his recovery is going well. Looks like he will be out a couple more months.

    I like it well enough. We are both homesick at times for TX - although I did not grow up there, I lived there most of my adult life and we have a great group of friends we miss. But I get to see my Dad here, and I know I will never regret the time I am spending with him. He is 81 so time is precious.

    The beaches here are lovely, and the weather is good, especially in the winter. The "season" crowds are kind of annoying but oh well.

    FL may not be a forever place for us, but it's the right place for right now.

    Thanks for that. I may become one of the people in season crowds in a few years.
