Well this is my first ever trip report.

Went up to Reno on Wed July 13th after the wife had to do a days work. Got up there around 8:00 pm coming from Auburn California... which is about 35 miles east of Sacramento. I won the May drawing for the Sands so I decided to use that. Its an ok hotel but in a terrible location. The wife didn't feel comfortable walking the homeless mission that is between the Sands and the Eldorado. But I made sure that we were together when she wanted to walk back to the room.

Got up there at about 8 and checked into the hotel. We were the only ones in line so we were done in about 2 minutes. Gave them a credit card and got the keys to the room. I know the room was free but we knew that we would be renting a movie one night to relax. After puting the suitcase in the room and letting the wife change out of her work clothes we headed down to Tony Roma's for dinner. Not a bad restuarant but a little expensive for the amount of food that we got.

After dinner we had to get some money off of our cards for the 4 days that we were going to be there. I tried my card but it was denied .... and its like hello i just got this card today and verified it not even 6 hours ago. So ended up using another card and getting money that way.

Gave the wife some money and told her that i was going to try the tables for an hour here. Well about 45 minutes later and $200 bucks richer i cashed out and went and got the wife to go to Virginia Street. She was about 20 bucks ahead herself

Went into the Eldorado and played for a bit. Staying about even when the wife said that she wanted to have dessert. We went upstairs to go to the coffee shop to see what we could get. well the only thing that i seen when i got up there was closed. I said to the wife come here... and proceeded to go to the high limit area. I put $100 in a $5 machine and within about 10 spins i got a cherry and a 10X pay ... for a nice little profit of 500 bucks. Decided that we needed to go back to the room because we were both tired. I stopped at the store and got some goodies and walked back to the room. We ended the day $800 ahead.

Thursday July 14th... the winning continues

I got up around 6 because of the sun coming in the window. So I decided to head down to the blackjack table for some luck. I ended up around 200. but that was it for the morning. Went and had something to eat at Eldorado. and played at some of the hotels. it took me all day to lose the 200 that I won that morning. We were walking up around the Siena when the bowels started moving. And when i say moving ... I mean they really moved. All i am going to say is that it was a 3 flusher.. and you know how powerful the toilets can be in the hotels. Ended up having to go back to the hotel and rest for a couple of hours until I felt better.

Went back down to the Cal Neva wanting to go into the back part of the casino .. the part that is on Center ST. Dropped 400 within like an hour. Went to the front part of the casino ... the one on Virginai Street. and proceeded to win back 350 of it .. the wife dropped 40 in the back part of the casino and then came up front and proceeded to win 90 .. making us even for that hotel. Went back to the hotel for the night and count our winnings ... we somehow ended the day at +870 for the trip so far....
