Any story, no matter how crazy or exaggerated it sounded, it's probably true.

When our renovations are done, I'm going to have our casino people set up up deals for OSO members so everyone can get down there as inexpensively as possible.

Gino, we have a group of 6-10 guys that go 2-3 times a year for a "fishing trip" every year. Stories are unbelievable but maybe now are totally believable. They usually stay in a multi-million dollar rental house with pool and jacuzzi and they gamble like rockstars. Looks like I need to get the info from you and i will hook them up thru your place so you can pocket all their entertainment money rather than someone else. I have been saying I would go for years, so I guess I will have to be a tour coordinator for them. Hammer

Looking forward to going to Gino's casino, but.....
Lofty is on target ...the traffic in and out of San Jose/Hwy 1 is a nightmare!

We drove to the Guanacaste area, which took 3 hours in the morning, but drove back to San Jose that afternoon around 4-5:00 and it took 7 hours!
OMG! We were very happy that a San Jose contractor was doing the driving, which entailed a lot of tailgating, speeding along narrow/crowded roads, making four lanes out of 2, running stop signs, avoiding pedestrians who have no fear of moving vehicles, and the yahoos on pocket rockets blowing-thru between the lanes of traffic.

There are a lot of good looking women, who all must buy clothes from Victoria Secret catalogs. We had to tuck our tongues back in few times.

Tell him we miss him.
