from hutchinson KS

well, finally i have wifi again. didnt have it the whole 24 hours i was on the amtrak, except very spotty service now and again thru the phone via sprint. not even with paying all that extra $300+ for a private sleeper car at the last possible minute. had i preplanned the trip out in advance and on the right day instead of going there a last second decision to want to be there, i couldve gotten the room for about $150 less. but i did do the right thing in going to Ks, correct?

took a motel not too far from amtrak, and mom will be herself to drive me into lyons at 8.30am. theres no cabs this time of night, and uber isnt in hutchinson. nothing comes up when u enter ur location. arrived quite ahead of schedule about 1.55am.

all in all, including the $68 for the room since i didnt get it for $44 prebooking it thru priceline (which u cant do after midnite) im down to $13,700. yeah i spent much more than i needed to to get here, thats for sure. couldve just flown into wichita, went to the casino, took a cab or uber from wichita to lyons, and probably still come out on top. but im no worse off than when i left deadwood, thanks to about $1800 worth of winnings in phoenix before the final losing session.

not entirely sure if im going back to phoenix right  after the first, or going to albuquerque much closer, or heading the other way into toledo. i definitely do plan to spend time in phoenix in the future. best room ive ever seen. i still dont think this $13,000 is nearly enough of a bankroll.

ive only got about $60 left on bovada but not sure if ill be able to sleep much now, after so much on the train, so i joined the $10 MTT while i wait for 8.30 to get here. nor does it look like theres an open store in walking distance to buy food. i ate for free on the train in the diner due to being sleeper car passenger, and their menu is quite limited.

    1. Hey cheese wiz, it happens to be my hometown! And your forget to mention sleazy attorney's too. And the good old boys club downtown, with all the dirty Italian and Syrian mob types. With filthy Lebanese combing the streets for places to read your palms with the Gypsy's from Chicago that stop through on their drive to New York city and play poker downtown in the back rooms of prestigious business. You also forgot about local officials cheating on their wives. And steeling everything that isn't bolted down. So go easy, its a lovely place to start a new beginning. Oh we do have some of the most interesting African American population here too.

    2. Steeling things that aren't bolted down would make them heavier and harder to nick.

    3. pimps and drugs you say? well damn now i gotta head to Detroit

    4. Most people from Detroit that are wanted by the law drive down 40 minutes to jump the state line to Toledo. Toledo is basically Detroit.

    5. Once when I was in Detroit, I had two Lions tickets on the dashboard of my truck. I stopped to to buy some liquor on the way to the game and when I got back, somebody had smashed in my window and left me 2 more!!!!!..Great town. Oddly..this also happened in Oakland....

    6. something sounds really strange about this, certain its a joke, but im not understanding the moral of the story. no big deal however, i dont understand a lot of things. i do think however i made a big error in leaving reno. id still have $18,000 plus whatever it wouldve grown to had i stayed put. plus id still have the same steady address. does anyone else think i shouldve stayed?

      Delete
    7. Tony, you always think that the grass is greener everywhere but where you are even when you are doing great. For this reason you will never stay put until you are back to nothing and panhandling again.

    8. I am a firm believer that you should have stayed in Reno. Other than you leaving banana peels laying around in your trash I thought you had a fairly nice place to live for the money you were paying at the time for that apartment.

  3. Tony I am glad you went to visit your Mom - we dont have them around forever you know. You finally did something smart.

  10. Tony, you have made some really good decisions the last few days. The most important was going home for Christmas. I like that you splashed out on a bit of luxury for yourself for a change and paid for the private sleeper on the train.

    Do you remember I went and checked out Prescott for you a couple of years ago. There was a poker room at Bucky's with about eight or so tables. But I don't remember what the games were. Right down the bottom of the hill on the other side of the road was the Indian casino Yavapai. I don't remember seeing any table games there or a poker room, but it did have the vbj that you like (I think) in the non smoking section. I also remember there was a shuttle service between the casinos. Anyway if you go back to Arizona and think of heading there, I don't remember seeing any accomodation nearby the casinos and they were kind of just on the edge of town.

    Hope you, your Mom and your Son have a great family Christmas together. Take care.

    4. Kevin, i know u feel im being bullied, and i appreciate when i feel someone stands up for me. please dont upset lightning or Ray though, they are good people. i wont be in vegas because i want to repair everything ive done wrong in life to others, and draw closer to God. so i need the help of some of his other servants to cure things i cannot cure on my own. sometimes i feel God expects more from me than im capable of without his help. (if i remember though, u dont believe in God) id be curious to meet u myself, but if i have already and dont remember, remind me which cardroom i was in. i dont feel ive done a good job of being a christian, and i dont want to be responsible for others going to hell by being a poor example of what it means to be a christian

    5. Kevin "Oh Golly" Geeeeee is a little upset right now so he wants to fight.

      He does not realize what HUGE mistake that would be for him. Stay angry Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    6. I call BULLSHIT ON YOUR CLAIM THAT YOU WANT TO REPAIR EVERYTHING THAT YOU HAVE DONE WRONG TO OTHERS. YOU HAVE WRONGED ME BY MAKING UP LIES TO ATTACK MY MORALS. yOU ARE A TWISTED SORT OF ASSHOLE WHO BETTER PRAY HE NEVER COMES BACK TO VEGAS BECAUSE I WILL GET YOU.

  15. spent yesterday at the aldi's in hutchinson with mom helping her lift cases of groceries into the cart, riding back to lyons, seeing my son Mark, playing him some uno and scrabble, playing mom some skip-bo, and all the gifts were opened on christmas eve. today, mom is upstairs cooking, she dont cook much anymore. Mark mostly fixes his own food in the basement. she will be 74 next year. her car is 1985 and could give out anytime, it wouldnt start back up for close to 30 minutes yesterday on the highway into hutchinson to pick me up.

    2. the work involved digging thru the shelves to the things on the bottom. for instance she wanted 20 of the boxes of garlic mashed potatoes. to find them, i had to look thru tons of other types of mashed potatoes, and they were on the lower part of several crate type boxes, everything on top had to be taken out, then reloaded back in. same with the type of soups she wanted, types of pea soup, etc. lot of unstocking and restocking shelves. no idea how she does this when by herself.

    3. You always wanted to buy a cheap car, now is your chance!It sure looks like your Mom could use it!

    4. All that money you have blown on machines and women who scammed you - how sad you should feel seeing your Mom who could really use even 5% of the money you have lost on gambling- you should be ashamed of yourself. I couldnt bare to watch my Mom struggle if I had blown the amount of money you have on a gambling addiction.

    5. You could've bought your mom 6 quality used cars with the $18k you've dumped in the last 8 weeks or so. Congrats on having your priorities so well in order.

    3. I have been around for years. Everyone here knows me and knows how much an asshole TBC really is. No one is suprised that I have such hatred for the Racist, Homophobe. He loves to play the victim card when he starts shit. Sorry morons i dont give a fuck what you think of my actions against TBC. He deserves them and way more. And trust me the next time he comes to Vegas I will get my revenge.

    1. Nothing wrong with harlots. The original bible belief was that Mary Magdalene was one, and a groupie of Jesus Christ. It is now becoming more accepted that she could have been his wife.

  21. Tony I am curious about something. You said your mom was in her 70's and God willing No One Lives Forever. When the day does come that your mom passes from this world what will happen to Mark then? Will he be able to live on his own?

    2. Even if that miracle happened TBC wouldnt spend a fucking dime on anyone else. As he has proven over the years. It is all about TBC and no one else.

  22. He will go into some sort of free assisted care program, and that will be that. Cost to TBC =0

  23. I suppose everyone here believes this is science, and the direction we are in is from evolution (Lol). Why do you people think strange things are happening, who do you think is hiding behind these nasty governments in this world. DEMONS are control the directions and hiding behind foolish people. I shouldn't tell you people this, you should find out on your own and have to feel the full force of your inequities. What do you think happened in the past, those ancient ruins are telling you stories in the old testament. But most are so full of pride and envy they think they are above the real truth of what went on here and has been and is now, right up to revelations. You better read the bible boys and girls. You really have no idea what your subscribing to being sold on things of this world. Your Welcome too! The nasty, prideful, arrogant ways are not your fault it was brought about by satin. Some just subscribed to it and let their ego do the walking. Many are in denial they just really think they are all that.

    Demons are hustlers and they lie, they have hustled most of you into using your pride and ego's against yourselves. You all think it a fairy tale, it really isn't. Part of the lie satan has led his fallen group to believe.

    Really? Satin? Because other softer material brings out the worst in people too. Material like suede, corduroy, silk....really evil stuff.
