my vegas trip

Post by doris13 »

returned this morning from 5 days in vegas.i guess october is the time to go,boy was it crowded.no big wins like my last 2 trips but lots of quads,and bonus quads with and without kickers.sorry to say the linq has removed all my favorite triple poker machines but 3 so i have now crossed them off my "must play there" list.had a great time,beautiful room in the jubilee tower of ballys and my flights were pretty much on time.worse part of the trip was the endless trek thru the united terminal in vegas.

October was one of my favorite times to be there, too, Doris. Glad you had a nice time; it's ALWAYS worth the wait...

Nice trip Doris and I am glad you so enjoyed it. I bet Vman could have written several pages and posted photos about the semi nightmare going through the United Terminal. I still think Vman has missed his calling and should be producing Travelogues sort of like the show " River Monsters " which he could rename Gambling Monsters... I hope us posters at least get a discount when he opens up for business. I know what my first suggestion will be...Get rid of my dumb phone and get with it with a Smart Phone. Hope you are still enjoying your Caddy Doris. In case you take a trip up this way for the scenery which is peaking now, give me a holler.

love my caddy olds and it enjoys the runs i give it to AC,lol.the united terminal is not a semi nightmare it is a complete nightmare.i swear it's easily a 2 mile trek just to get to the baggage claim and then you go to a miles long taxi line.

Doris I was unaware until now that you may have a handicap. If you ever fly into one of Chicago's 2 major airports I will gladly assist you with whatever mobility issues you may encounter.

i do not need assistance,what they need to do is bring back the moving walkways to make it easier for us "older"folks.mccarron does not have the golf cart they only have wheelchairs.united also needs to realize that putting 6 planes worth of luggage on 1 carousel is beyond stupid.i don't plan on flying to chicago any time soon but thanks for the offer ted.

with the prominence of golf courses in the Vegas area (and surrounding outlying communities).  you'd think SOMEONE had a spare golf cart they could lend McCarron Air Pit one or two
