    Governor said June 4 in an article in LV Sun. I can’t get the link to work.

    Likely I won’t be coaching youth football this year due to uncertainty if we would play and sign-ups are at ZERO right now. If that’s the case then I will see you for at least a day my friend!

    Current Plan is to drive from Chicago for September 18-22 trip and pick up the guys in Phoenix on the way! I guess flying is the part that bothered my wife. Things starting to open up a bit here. We had our first food delivery in two months!

    Sept 18 is the first Raiders home game if it happens. I'm more afraid of Raiders fans than I am of flying right now!

    My daughter and son -in-law are scheduled to go to that game. I’m babysitting. Sigh. Tickets are ridiculously expensive right now. Think it’ll happen? NFL says they’re playing, but maybe with no fans?

    Return flight was Sept 21, but decided to drive instead, and then reserved the hotels for the extra Sept 21 night also, now leaving Sept 22 so we can attend, or watch that game. Opening night for Raiders in Vegas on Monday Night Football is hard to beat!!!

    Metallic Pea---you think you hate it now, but wait til you drive it!

    Luckily I'll be driving Tahoe LTZ, with cheap gas prices to boot! I'm gonna hang down in Phoenix and play golf for a while and look for a vacation house after the Vegas trip.

    One of my friends was hired by Morongo to be there for opening weekend. I won’t state her exact occupation publicly but they are paying her for her opinion. The long wait times were mostly due to the long lines outside. Most people were there with one other person and she saw very few groups of more than four. It was at capacity but not like in a normal night.

    She told me that I would’ve hated it since most people were placing minimum bets. That’s one of the reasons why I don’t really like going to locals. I like to max bet and I feel like the odds of a big payout are lower if most people who play the same machine aren’t max betting.

    She didn’t see many people stay at the bar for too long either. Based on what she observed, most people went there to gamble, not to socialize. It’ll be interesting to see what Vegas will be like once they open.

    That's what she said!

    My buddy actually lives up on Carefree highway right by the In-N-Out so I get that 4x4 every time I visit. I'm looking for a place walkable to Old Town. There are some really nice lofts a few blocks away. An easy stumble is always a good thing!

    We just finalized the plans--I'm leaving in the Family Truckster on Mon 9/14, stopping in Tulsa and Albuquerque for overnights, and arriving in Phoenix on Wed night. Playing golf at Borat's course on Thursday, drive up to Vegas after the guys get off work on Friday. 4 guys split between comp rooms at Aria and Palazzo. I have the rooms til Tues AM, so will play it by ear on the Raiders game Mon night. Head back to Phoenix Tues morning and spend the balance of the week playing golf and touring vacation properties. Then the painful road trip back to Chicago, stopping at every casino in between! ;)

    Never been so excited for a trip---I'll def do a full trip report!

    It should be---I'll need a break after months at home!

    I actually re-calculated the drive to a day longer each way so I can stop and see my sister and my brother on the way. So now I'm going Chicago-Lincoln-Boulder-Albuquerque-Phoenix-Vegas with reverse for return trip. A little more manageable/enjoyable driving days under 8 hours per day. Only 2 paid hotels out of 14 nights! I guess Palazzo must still be closed in Sept, because they gave me a Venetian reservation.
