On the Road Again: Upcoming Trip to Seattle and Phoenix

Sometimes vacation schedules are interesting to put together. I had carved out my June trip to Las Vegas a long time ago. Mrs. lightning, however, works in a small business and can only take vacation when the owners do. They decided to close shop for the first week of July, so that meant vacation time again, but with my wife this time. I presented her with possible options including Washington, D.C. and a cruise out of southern Florida, but she instead decided that seeing our son and her best friend would be more important to her.

So ... come Friday night, we will be heading to Seattle for a few days to visit our son and his girlfriend. On July 3, we will fly to Phoenix to spend some time with friends and family.

While in Seattle, I hope to squeeze in a poker session at Suquamish Clearwater Casino. I had the opportunity to play there on my last trip to Seattle. I had a fun time playing the spread game there, then won a little playing some NL. I don't know if the schedule will permit time there, but if not ...

I'll be spending four days in the Phoenix area, meaning I will get in at least a session or two at the Arena Poker Room at Talking Stick Resort, and maybe even will travel a little further to put in some time at Wild Horse Pass. I just found out that former online poker friend/rival 1Queens Up1/PhillyB322 and I might be able to connect. I will have to once again get used to the spread limit game that The Stick provides.

The sockroll is still very healthy after my Las Vegas trip. u see, no need to MARTINGALE at this time, of course.

I know that it is tough having to work four days between vacation weeks, but someone has to do it!

Thanks for reading.

Don't strain yourself too much working between vacations Lightning. And don't think I'm jealous or anything either.

@Neo - After working professionally for 36 years, I feel little guilt about having some time off. : o )
