I ended up in Salta, Argentina for a day by accident and I found two casinos with tables but they donít open until 6 tonight. My flight leaves at 7:30... crap!

PG, that's the kind of situation where I have purchased a chip at the cage and then put a dollar in a slot machine to be able to say I gambled at the casino.

I am late seeing your post, but how close was the airport to the casino? With my Casino Azores chip, I described my down-to-the-wire schedule to collect that one.

20 minutes away, there was no way I would have been able to make it in time for the flight.

Bummer PG. How does one end up in Salta ďby accidentĒ?
When I die, I want everyone who ever worked with me on a group project to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.

Iím waiting for my plane in Aruba and Iím taking inventory of my chips from this trip. The count is currently as follows:

Peru - 8
Aruba - 13
Chile - 4
Colombia - 9

I will be spending the next 36 hours in Bogotá if my plane ever decides to show up. Tonight I will be finishing my collecting in South America with 3 more casinos and 1 that Iím 50/50 on it being open. All together 34 new casinos and Iím hoping to make it 38.

Iím thinking of doing New Mexico and Arizona collecting after Spring Fling. Can I do that all in 3 days? Iíll have to map it out later.

I wouldn't have the stamina to do all of that driving in 3 days. I don't think I will be collecting any new chips at all during the upcoming Spring Fling trip. Maybe by next year's gathering the Virgin Las Vegas will be operating under that new name.

You could get Phoenix, abq, and the couple on i40 in 3 days. Would be hard to also do rural casinos with table hours to contend with.
