    There shouldn't be any advertising on my blog, I think I found a way to kill it all. I don't make any money from my site, I just like to share my misadventures!

    https://sites.google.com/site/lvgrid/

    I've logged nearly every trip I have made to Vegas. From Excitement, like hitting a major progressive. To Excrement, like getting the shits from El Sugundo Sol's (Twice no less).

    If you have a tablet, and enjoy some crude humor while hanging out in the john, feel free to browse around.

    I welcome any feedback!

    Over 6 years worth of trip reports. Thousands of pictures and well over 100 pages of text. Countless man hours spent building my blog with content wasted.

    Photobucket is now holding my website hostage to the tune of $800.00 a year. What a kick in my face, looks like millions of users are pissed as well.

    I had so many pictures embedded that I actually had 2 photobucket accounts. So I would have to pay their "embed" fee of $399 twice to get my website back to normal.

    I started using Imgur early this year, but everything prior to 2017 is now worthless without pictures. I'm going to see if they fall under the pressure to back off on this, like Netflix, before freaking out. Way to much work for me to figure out what picture went where to start all over again with a new hosting site. I might end up walking away from the blog game.

    Sorry for the rant.

    I am catching up on your blog, some great stuff. It sucks about the pictures, because there are times when you talk about a specific slot, but the picture is gone. I almost always play a ton of video poker, but that really doesn't get you much in comps. I'm getting ready to plan a trip to Atlantic City for September, it will be our first time there. My wife loves the beach and I love to gamble, so we will see how it goes.

    Sorry about that DP! The pictures sure help the story telling a hellofvalot more LOL. You guys will LOVE AC! Don't listen to all the negative things being said. Most of them are true but they wont really effect you as a tourist. Sept is a good time to visit. Nice breeze, crowds should mostly be gone and a much more enjoyable experience.

    Make sure you check out both the marina and the boardwalk.

    Is the boardwalk very far from the marina? I think we are looking at staying at Bally's.

    Its not far, but you cant walk it. You'd have to go into the inner city and cross a few highway ramps. There should be a free shuttle that picks you up at Ballys and takes you over to Harrahs, which is in the marina dist. Or a cab ride is like 10 bucks.

    Once you get to Harrahs you can walk to the Golden Nugget, IMO nothing special at all. Or you can walk over to the Borgata which is the #1 Must see place in all of AC!

    That sounds great, I'm looking forward to going. I thought I heard that you can drink for free as long as you are gambling, is that right?

    Booze is free! Just watch where you drink. I was playing VP at the Mountain Bar in Ballys Wild Wild West years ago, and I ordered a drink and they actually charged me for it. I guess they have a bunch of people that grab a drink and head to the beach or boardwalk. So if you need to get lubed, do it at a table or on the casino floor to play it safe.

    It took me 2 weeks, but the Grid Report is back and better than ever. I actually went in and coded it this time, so it should work well if you want to read something on your phone or tablet while taking a shit.

    More pictures, more sections and more of my stupidness. Thanks for hanging in there to those that read it!
