It's much harder now to get to this site than it used to be. My company added it to their list of blocked sites last summer. That kills my laptop and phone at the office (on their wifi) and it also kills the laptop at home (on their vpn). For a while I was doing the phone from home. I didn't realize it had been so long since I'd done that.
I think 4/22 will work for me. Really, probably 4/21 to 4/25. My mother in law is visiting my wife that week. That makes me happy to head to Vegas, but it means I'll be alone this year. I'm not sure yet about flight timing, but a collecting trip on Friday probably works for me. Same with the usual Saturday and potential Sunday festivities.
It kills me a little to be missing chips from northern Nevada again, but I can't get up there this time. I might head to California to try to grab a chip from that newish casino by Joshua tree.
I can't find a path to 500 more chips for the group. I think we're underrepresented in cali, in WA and Oregon, and in North Dakota. But adding those only adds about 200 chips.
I think there are about 620 chips in my collection. I could see getting to about 800 if I go to FL, go to WA and Oregon, visit Northern California, and revisit Ms, LA, and ok. Maybe 850 if I go to deadwood and to the bars in nd.
