    the tripod will come in handy at night. and you'll want to take night pics. just leave it in the room until you need it.

  16. More memory.

    If you dont bring a tripod you should punch yourself in the nuts now so you will get a head start on the Ownage because alot more will be coming ahead.

    And yes bring condoms.

    Bring a bottle or 2 of your favorite liquor because I think they stop selling the hard stuff in stores at like 9 or 10. And even then the prices are still inflated. And If you don't get your own bottle early the only place you will beable to drink is a the bars and that's like $10 for a shot when you can buy a bottle for $20. I remember that was our problem this year at atlantic city :o

    Oh and bring your camera bag unless you want all you shit spread out everywhere. That's a good way to lose stuff :mamoru:

    Bring a couple porno mags too because I have a feeling you will not need the condoms if you are asking OT what you should bring.

    and bring alot of 1$ bills and fold them in half so you'll be prepaired :)

    although i agree with a lot of what you are saying i was asking ot what i should bring for camera gear. i don't drink, i don't gamble. wife and i went out there for a valentines get away. we may sound boring and we probably are, but at least it was a lot cheaper than losing on gambling and well you explained the liquor prices...;)

    yes, I consider you two incredibly boring. You don't drink, you don't gamble...vegas isn't for you. You are missing out on all that vegas has to offer by not doing the above. I normally gamble between $100-200 when I go and I have fun losing it too. Although I normally either get my money back or come out ahead.
     

  22. Oh and Bringing Sand to the Desert ftl :o

    :mamoru:

    as long as you had fun that's all that matters :bigthumb:

    i beg to differ. by gambling you are missing a lot of what vegas has to offer by spending a lot of your time at the darn casinos in front of a machine, as if you couldn't do this at home or in a gathering of people playing cards or with dice. but that's just to me.

    who says you spend your time in front of a machine? :ugh:

    I play tables as im walking around vegas. I watch the shows, I play some slots, I'll check out the sites, play at a table...all while carrying around a drink.
