Bug-free at last

We are at the Miccosukee Casino Resort, off the Tamiami Trail west of Miami (map). There are no no-see-ums here.

We've stayed here before, and remembered it as a nice overnight stop. Security gives you a pass for overnight parking, so long as you promise not to leave your rig while you go sightseeing off-property. Back then, apparently, we were not yet in the habit of signing up for players' cards, so we did so this time.

As first-time club members, we each received $15 in slot credit, and coupons for 2-for-1 at the buffet, plus $10 credit good next month, should we end up back here. We parlayed the $30 in funny money into $20 in cash, and we put the $9 we had left over after buying two buffet dinners for $11 towards a bottle of wine ($15; yes, we drank more than we ate). All told, an excellent stop.

We also tried to book massages in the on-site spa ($55 for 50 minutes), but they were all booked through today. If we end up back here in January, we still have $20 in slot credit and another buffet coupon; not out of the question if we decide to go to TrawlerFest.

Today we will continue to Fort Lauderdale, where I am guessing we will end up again at the casino a few miles north. I was able to order brake linings from England, and they should arrive at the shop sometime tomorrow; we'll see when they can schedule us in to do the work.
