The Quad Queen and I have been coming to Vegas for almost 20 years. Trips in those early days were pretty meagre affairs. We didn't have much dough and our understanding of how to work the comp system was marginal to non-existent. It was great. But I hated sweating every penny and not being able to do the things we wanted to do. We'd talk about the day when these things would be lifted off our shoulders, when we could do Vegas in the way we wanted without strain or worry. Someday, we'd have a trip. And this trip would be called The Victory Trip.
