Just made it home. I drove 1200 miles, 1 meal, and 9 casinos in 21 hours. Wife helped out by sleeping for 10 of them.



whew!

did I miss your motivation for this? lots of free play? or ?

I realized last night that I do not like southern seafood. Why do they fry it all in corn meal or whatever the hell they use?
I would prefer red lobster over standard southern friend sea food



You telling me didn't like the catfish nuggets?!

Buskers make good money. Canada, Australia, several European countries have Busker Festivals.

The Kelly Family would tour the Busking Circuit in a bus and make good money before they suddenly transitioned to a Stadium Touring Band.

My car said I averaged 71mph. The 9 stops were all quick just to get a chip except for 1 which we played for about an hour and had dinner. We also had a stop for about an hour at a place and throw in 4 gas stops and 2 bathroom stops.

Btw, I was off on my miles. We did a total of 1187 but only 1004 on the way home. The other 183 were done the first day we were out?

I drove the entire time, wife was going to take over at one point. I told her to wait until next exit when we got gas which was about 5 miles. Right before the exit I look over and she is asleep. I grabbed an extreme 5 hour, coffee, and a pepsi and powered through. I was wired for the next 4 hours. There was only 1 time during the drive that I am not sure how I got about 5 miles down the highway. That was a sign for another round of the above.

I woke up yesterday at 5am and haven't been to sleep yet. I feel like death currently but too late to take a nap. At this point a nap would be bed time. I can't believe I used to go 48 hours with no sleep often as a kid.

Wait, isn't there some requirement in chip collecting that you at least play a hand to get the chip?

Running in, buying one and running out doesn't violate the Code of Chip Collectors?

Not mine. My only rule is I must personally get it from the casino.

OK, only 1187 miles in 21 hours.
With an hour for gaming at one casino, and dinner.
And another 8 casino stops, 4 gas stops, and 2 restroom stops.

That's pushing 70 MPH average every minute the engine is running.

I used to have an acquaintance that drove like that, you might have heard of him.
He called himself Wiggly ;-)
