    The plans for this trip are here:

    http://vegasfanatics.com/index.php?threads/new-round-here.201/#post-3203

    I have been a lurker for many years at VMB, but this is my first attempt at a contribution and trip report so be gentle. I'll try to do live updates with pictures. I play mainly table games, but will mix in some video poker and maybe slots if the mood is right. I'm a low roller, I usually have a daily gambling budget of $1,500. For this trip, I took 1,000 off the top to gamble at the Horseshoe. My daily Vegas bankroll could be larger or smaller than I'm used to depending on how things go in Indiana.

    T - 2 days until departure

    In honor of Vegaschic, I'll start this off with a shoe pic. Yes I'm a man. And yes I check a bag to Vegas. It was hard, but I narrowed it down to four pairs of shoes.

    When I travel with my GF she gets upset because she only takes a carry on.

    I also bought a new pink wallet that's destined to be my new lucky wallet. I'll post pictures of that later.

    Welcome to the forum. Glad to have you here. It's always nice to live vicariously through others while we are away from the promised land.

    With that said, GO BEARS!

    LOVE this, haha! The issue is for men is that your shoes take up a TON of space!! Right?? Mr VC is by far the clothes horse in this house, and he always ends up with more suitcase space due to the shoes and his clothes are, well, bigger!!

    Great start on the pre-trip portion of the report! Just remember when in Vegas if you do go shopping, we're here to offer any opinions as needed! Hope to see the lucky pink wallet too stuffed to close~ good luck!!

    When you say promised land, you mean Horseshoe Indiana - Right? ;)


    She already went to the doctor? I hope she feels better soon. Next week is a long time away, I'm sure she'll be healthy and you'll be flying to Las Vegas before next weekend.

    Yes, my shoes are twice as big as my GF's! Clothes take up twice as much space too! You understand my plight lol.

    Thanks Tbone!

    Looking good, man. Those Bird socks will keep you from getting pinched. Then again, isn't Vegas the kind of place where you don't want to wear green on St. Party's Day? More potential pinches?

    Thanks VM! I really hope it's not a one and done for my new good luck charms lol.

    For sure, if I see you I'll be sure to say hi. I'm usually slumming it at the lower end places though so not sure if I'll see you, but if you notice a guy with a pink wallet and Larry Bird socks don't be shy. :)

    I hope so, I'll try not to let everyone down. :grin:

    Not the pink situation I was chasing in Las Vegas 10 years ago, but it will have to do. Safe travels.
