Left last Thursday night and got back late last night. I want to say it was a smooth trip but it wasn't. We arrived in Vegas around 11pm. It was 97 degrees outside still. Sadly the cab driver didn't exactly know where our hotel was. I guess since we were staying at a normal hotel and not a casino, it threw him for a loop. Left for Reno the next morning and Southwest lost our luggage. This wouldn't have been a big deal but the wedding we were attending was in 2 hrs. Luckily Southwest found it and we went to the wedding. I have to say that while it was fast to get onto and off of a Southwest flight, I really hate the chaos to accompanies it. Reno is surprisingly small. The whole town is a mere 200,000 people which is 1/2 or so of Tulsa. We did take a detour over to an "In and Out" burger place and it was still as good as I remember. I have to say the place is growing on me. It's fast food but damn good compared to fast food. Saturday afternoon we spent the afternoon touring Lake Tahoe and the surrounding areas. Don't try this with a 4 cyl rental car if you do this in the future. The Chrysler we had was gutless in those mountains. Still once you get down by the lake, it's an amazing place. It's like a different world there. But be prepared for some sticker shock. $5 for an ice cream cone?? Once we arrived back in Vegas on that Sunday I saw a sight I didn't know how to respond to. Some lady was using the crack of her boobs as a cell phone holder... I have to say Tom was right as it was quite HOT while I was there. Sun, Mon, and Tues averaged over 100 degrees but the heat wasn't that bad as there was no humidity. It felt hotter when I arrived in Dallas. It was 85 in Dallas with 80% humidity. I'll take 105 degree heat with no humidity any day. Beyond that I didn't do a whole lot while I was there. I played a little poker and was quite pissed about the result. $45 to play in a no limit tournament. Winner got something around $2700 with everyone up to the top 6 getting paid. I was #3 in chips and was dealt 2 Kings. I raised and had 2 callers. Flop was A-K-J. I had 3 Kings and bet it. 2 callers. Turn was another King. I checked knowing I would go all in but wanted 2 suckers to join me. I get 2 callers. First guy had A-A which means he had a full house. I had 4 Kings and my neighbor next to me had 2 Jacks for a full house as well but he was drawing dead. There was 1 card in the deck that could beat me and it came out on the river so I was outrivered holding quad kings. Wife was happy though as she got a new purse from Guess. The weather got unseasonably nice as the week wore on. Wed and Thursday it was around 80 degrees with a nice wind. Near Perfect if you ask me. I'll post some pics later.
