Last night after a 14-hour drive from Sugar Land, Texas to Tunica, Mississippi I got to experience for the first time going to a casino and gambling. Even though I am 25 and have been able to for a few years now I never had been to one. Texas is pretty against gambling and so you have to go out of state to do so. When I would go out of state I normally had a vacation planned so gambling was not something I would think of.
Being new to it all I told my roommate and his dad. To make it easy we stuck to slots at first and that did not go over well at all! With the first machine, I put in $30 and won a whopping $2.50! The second one went a lot better for me though as I put in $15 and won $6.20 so all told I put in $45 and got back $8.70 so it could have been worse for sure.
My friend's dad then really showed up how to play roulette and after he played for a while and we watch we began to swap out people. My first time at the table I put $4 on 2 and won $120 which was really nice to feel. We were starting to run out of chips when I did this so I felt like I helped the fam out! We proceeded to play this till 2 am for a total of 5+ hours and while we gave everything we had started with to the house it was a fun time and the drinks for the three of us were free and we probably broke even just with that alone.
When we went up to our room at 2:30 the whole group that had stayed up was pretty lit and I was wondering how this next morning would shake out for us and while the three of us in my roommate vehicle were in good shape and one of the other adults was good the Uhaul driver was in a rough shape and was an hour late getting up and leaving. The Uhaul driver is not even moving up to DC he is just helping his older brother out. His older brother was the one that made us late the first day and now the younger brother made us late the second. What was pretty funny to me was that the older brother had to wait half an hour at a truck stop for us to pick him up due to running late. I guess that is karma for you!
Thus far on this leg of the journey, we have been moving a lot faster. Yesterday if we went above 60mph it was shocking but today we have been going over 65 and closer to 70mph consistently! We stop in Knoxville next and will spend the night there. This will leave us with a 7-hour drive tomorrow. We would go further however the adult in the other car is flying back to Sugar Land tomorrow to help with setting up the office down there!
