We all know people that believe certain things about Vegas that just aren’t true. Even before moving here, I’d have a couple friends that would say some of these things and since moving here, I hear even more of them. A few of the most common ones I hear are:

Vegas is always hot-a lot of people seriously think that temps in Vegas are always 90+ degrees and over 100 for a big portion of the year. They don’t realize that Vegas does have months where it’s cold.

Prostitution is legal-as we...

Brought my 27 yr old down last weekend for my $500 buy which I sucked at. However, he got to do the Speedway and Drifting. It was a good day. He had won a bit of money couple months ago online gambling so he splurged on the $600? $650 US cost to ride a Porche 911 something something around the track for was it only 5 laps or 7?. The lambo he wanted was an extra $200 so went with the Porche. And his instructor (who rides with you) also happened to be the professional drifter. So for the extra...

I've read a couple of trip reports that highlighted a restaurant in the mountains somewhere. I made a mental note of it at the time and even told my husband about it, but forgot that I'm old and don't remember things as well as I once did.

It seems the restaurant is pretty popular among Las Vegas regulars and I was hoping maybe a member could help me identify the name and location of this place.
Our trip is not until next week, but we are making plans.

So, when last we spoke I was recouping from a New Orleans' gambling trip that was.....harsh....horrid....terrible....no good.....very bad.....

OK, it sucked.

On the bright side we ate well, and the staff at the hotel was nice.

New Orleans itself? Not necessarily my cup of chicory. But there were some nice points.

We decided to take a month off, I've been off the board for the most part, Mrs. P. has been not looking at Vegas stuff, and we've both been insanely busy at work, and working...

When playing one of the Konami games with the multiple 2x free spins like China Shores, how does the RNG work? Does it determine both credit prize and free spin prize as soon as the bonus lands, or when you select an option? 2nd question is, say you are in free spins with 50 games remaining and you select balance of Fortune, but go back to the spins, will the RNG change the outcome again?

Arrived at Fantasy Springs Casino last night. Was too sleepy to start the TR, woke up at 3:30 am and couldn't go back to sleep, so I decided to write the TR now. We gambled very little last night, mostly watching other people play and finding out what slots machines and VP machines it has since we haven't been here for a while. Dined at a Chinese restaurant name Joy. It is not very authentic Chinese food, but it was not too bad. We witnessed a big Buffalo Gold win with 20 games left...

Kennebunkport (KPT)

July 7-11, 2019



July 7 - This trip officially commenced after we dropped Brody off at Midge’s Home for Pampered Pooches. Over the course of the ensuing 3 plus hour drive to KPT, we stopped once in Littleton, MA for lunch at Littleton Sub Shoppe and House of Pizza. A big name for a very small restaurant where we shared a small Italian cold cut grinder that will long be remembered as being the worst grinder, bar none, ever consumed. A 0.5 Forks on a scale of 5 has been...
