guarantee u the stud would no longer exist, although i know they have $2-10 holdem. u sure that campground would allow someone to stay if they didnt have an RV or a vehicle of any kind? the real problem with stashing a sleeping bag is ud have to buy a new one constantly, once a week it will either get soaking wet or stolen. id like to have a way to find out about cheap rooming houses before id try to go

I stayed in the campground in Cripple Creek with nothing but a sleeping bag and a tent. They have an area that's just for tents. Sleeping bags come with waterproof jackets these days. But if you want to waterproof something then spray it with Scotchguard, also found at Wal-Mart. You can even Scotchguard the sleeping bag. When you stash a sleeping bag you have to camouflage it real well. You use the bushes to do that. No one goes looking through bushes for anything. But every once and awhile you will get it ripped off. I only lost a few bags over 4 years.

Cheap rooming houses are hardly in existence anymore. Weekly hotels are about the best you can do. I stayed some in the weeklies on the west side of Colorado Springs. That area is called Old Town. The bus terminal for the day trippers up to Cripple Creek was just a few blocks away. You can catch the bus up in the morning then have several time choices for taking the bus back at night. Back then the bus cost $7 but you got it all back with coupons.

You need to buy a pocket notebook and start tracking your play. Log in the game, the number of hours you played in the session, what you won or lost, and use running totals to monitor your hourly rate. About a 200 hour sample space will give you a good idea of what you are worth in the game. That will tell you how much you can afford for rent. But you need to get that bankroll up to around $3000 before you start thinking about a weekly hotel. You are at $1682 now. A couple of months ago you were at just $700. So you are making progress. Keep plugging away at the $40 NL until you get there. Even when you get in a hotel don't throw the sleeping bag away. You need a contingency plan if you start running rough.

Mickey, I'd be interested in hearing you recount how you lived in the Laughlin hotels for a year for free.

Not really. Bob feigned confusion about the new rules for the 1000th time. The Wiz suggested that an easy solution would be to leave.
