I don't think you and I play at the same level. I'm a green to light black player and don't think I have the intestinal fortitude to move into purple/yellow action. Amassing $60-$80k in winnings, while thrilling, would be a goal I honestly don't think I could reach with the proficiency of my game. I'm happy to win a grand or two.
Congratulations of having achieved your goal on the Viper!!
I've owned two Corvettes, 1969 and 1973. I ordered the '73 and was thrilled to hear, "Mr. X, your Corvette is in"...ahh !!!!!!! Even if I inherited a zillion bucks, I'd still go Corvette, something about the car that is maximum heaven to me. At some point I'll have to get another one and experience what can only be described as "you gotta drive it to believe it". Not a city car, but in the wide open spaces of the West (I live in Atlanta), it is absolutely a supreme experience.
Like you, I am also retired...wife and I are focusing on International travel for a while, and hope to visit New Zealand (via Vegas) in the next month or so. She's with a major airline, thus the perk of free airfare is not to be ignored, plus 90% off on most of the others...hard to pass up!
Continued success with your goals!
