Tomorrow I am heading on a chip collecting trip through Oklahoma, Lousiana, MIssissippi and parts of Kansas and Arkansas, It will be a mixture of good food, lot's of collecting and gambling and hopefully if I have planned properly this time a few poker sessions so I can at least make some money to pay for the trip. Pictures will come at the end of the trip as imgur doesn't allow me to upload pics from my phone. If anyone is interested in meeting up here is a list of where I plan on tentatively sleeping each night.

17th and 18th Kansas City, MO
19th Tulsa, OK
20th Shreveport, LA
21st and 22nd Biloxi, MS
23rd KInder, LA
24th McAlester, OK
25th Gainseville, TX
26th Clinton, OK
27th Wichita, KS
28th and 29th Council Bluffs, IA
30th Home

Some of your routing doesn't make sense to me. The McAlester leg of the trip really stands out as unnecessary unless you have to be there on that specific date for a promotion.
If'n I'd a knowed you wanted to have went with me - I'd a seen that you got to get to go.

My routing is mapped out around collecting chips from casinos. That just happened to be a decent stopping point for the night as far as a cheap room and having driven quite a bit that day already.

McAlester is 90 minutes due south of Tulsa and would be on a possible route to Shreveport. It is a fairly small casino so I'm not sure why you would want to waste an entire day doubling back to visit after staying in Kinder.

I thought so but I called harrahs gulf coast tonight and they said there is no flooding issue in Biloxi.

Well yesterday was mostly a boring driving day. I drove from Winnipeg, MB to Kansas City with a few stops that covered 813 miles. It was a long freaking day!

One of the pit stops was at Dakota Magic where I stopped to check on my free play, apparently I don't get any from them anymore lol. I then AP'ed the Cleopatra machine. The trick to APing it is put money in and hit the bonus really quickly. That's how APing works right? Left up $46.

Finally got to KC and checked into my free room at Harrah's. I played through $10FP winning a whopping $2.90 and then played some VP. That's when I hit this:


Apparently I can now upload pictures from my phone to imgur. Ended up winning $60 all together on VP.
Chips collected 0 (0 for my collection)
Total miles - 813
Gas - $58
Hotel - $12
Food - $30
Gambling - +108.90
FP - $10 turned into $2.90

Thank you for the advice on Cleopatra machines. I'll be able to pay my mortgage now.
