Yes indeed Grant. But these guys here are the big boys. I do notice that there is a Travelodge is LV...but I think my employee rate (0% off) has expired.

I may just book the first 4 nights at one of the hotels on the strip. The last night is a Tuesday, so it should provide us some flexibility if we decide to relocate or just stay where we are. Dan says there is an arcade/bar that just opened downtown that sounds fun. So maybe we could stay the last night downtown.

I did some browsing for a total of 5 nights:
Flamingo $650 regular room
Flamingo $725 deluxe room
Rio $710 regular
Rio $800 deluxe
Harrah's $715 regular room
Harrah's $875 deluxe room
Bally's $750 regular
Bally's $1000 deluxe

I'd rather go deluxe for the extra floor space. After we book something I'll try to call down and request 2 beds. The Rio Deluxe is the only one that said 2 queens in the title. We don't want only 1 king bed and have to draw names for which 2 of us sleep naked in it. And also we should book within a couple days here

Tournament of Kings? We should look into that too.

Pawn Stars, Arcade Bar, Swimmin',

Do Ballys, Harrahs, or Flamingo.....whichever has the biggest rooms I guess. Tournament of Kings is ~$56 per person but I get a 2-for-1 locals discount for up to 8 tickets, so it becomes less than $30 a person. I can handle that once everything is set.

I've done booked 'er at Bally's. It has the biggest rooms at 444 sq feet. Flamingo charges $15 a day for internet and has smaller rooms. Harrah's has tiny rooms, even for deluxe and luxury. $666 for the nights of June 24,25,26,27.

We are situated in the South tower. We can upgrade to the North tower which is same size rooms but supposed to be nicer for $901 total, or South Tower Grand suite (831 sq ft, only 1 bed) for $991 total.

And we can always try this: http://www.thetwentydollartrick.com/Hotels/Ballys.html

Nice work Jayson, I'll make sure to take those dates off. I only have class on Wednesdays this summer so maybe we could drive on the 23rd and if necessary I would only miss class on the 29th if we want to take our time getting back.

Well, I guess I was wrong on the internet. Bally's does charge 13.99 a day for it. Still cheaper and bigger rooms though. But yes we can leave whenever is good for you guys. There are a bunch of different ways we can do it.

Good work Jayson. Ballys is where Austin stayed when he was here 2 weeks ago. The room was pretty sweet, but that's because they screwed up his room and provided him a free upgrade to a suite, which I would guess was probably over 1200 sq. ft. We can look at staying downtown on the 28th, or we could always take a cab too. I'll give Ben a call and let him know the final details. David and his gf might come down with Ben too but if they do they will probably get a separate room. So there should be five us in the room, with 4 beds, and maybe a couch? Looks like no one will have to sleep on the floor!

With a little bit of work I could probably get us an aircraft out there if anyone wants to go flying! http://www.monarchsky.com/index.php?opt ... Itemid=160

Probably around $100 an hour, but I'm not sure what kind of checkout they would make me do to rent one of their aircraft. Probably too much money but I will look into it.

June 22nd I have school, drive to Sioux City, leave the dog and we can start driving the morning of the 23rd. Then I said I would be back the 29th. So that is what I was planning on. I'm trying to get my boss to buy a z car in vegas so we could expense all the gas, but there aren't any on ebay.

Sorry, I was in Minnesota this last week. Has anyone talked to Ben recently? I'll try calling him and confirming everything. Leaving the 23rd, sometime in the morning. I've got an uncle who lives in Denver who said we could stop for a while/night. Grant, if you come up with a plan to fly that would be awesome too. Also, is there a specific time you need to be back by on the 29th? We'll see how long it takes to get there and decide if we stay the extra night.

I guess there is Price is Right thing going on at the Casino we are staying. Wade pointed it out and it's $60 a ticket if anyone is interested.

Erica lives in Denver too. I have class on the 29th but I told them I might not be back until the 30th so it should be cool.

Also maybe a cooler to put beer in? I'm sure there will be a mini-fridge but I'm guessing it will be able to hold 15 beers max.

Yes I'll bring the camera and tapes that I can find. If I get more time (than 5 years lolz) I'll transfer them to DVD. As for coolers, we can do it. And if anyone is bringing their laptop and wants to use internet in the motel room or on the road, I've still got that usb-wireless modem.

So I hate to do this to you (Grant and Jayson), but I'm going to fly instead. I've been taking too many road trips this summer and still have another one after this, so I'm going to be a bitch and bite the bullet. Plus the closures on I-29 will add some time we likely didn't account for at first.

Ok, we can figure it out. Flying home also I assume? Called Ben tonight and he said he and David will be there Saturday & Sunday.

Yeah flying back as well. I figure me not driving just adds a couple extra hours to each of your "shifts" and if you're stopping in Denver it won't be an "OMG ERIC SCREWED US TRIP." At least for you. I'd be pissy as hell for spending half my summer in a car.
