Default Sleeping in the Rio parking lot in my car?

I have recently gotten in touch with my inner Jew and am looking at places I can cut costs for my WSOP trip. I was wondering if it is even possible to pull this off or will they have security guards roaming and waking me up?

it's easy get a van with limo tints in the back and just move your van around each day.

This sounds more like a scene from Cool Hand Luke (van+parking lot in the desert)...

"...There's no playing grab-ass or fighting in the building. Any man playing grab-ass or fighting in the building spends a night in the box..."

Put a solar shade in the front, cover the other windows, snooze away. But that's gonna be very unpleasant. It's not super hot yet, being only June 1, but as I type this at 00:20 in Vegas it's 87F out there. Probably a bit hotter in the middle of a Rio parking lot radiating stored heat from the concrete. There are NEVER 8 pleasantly cool hours a day in mid summer to make sleeping at all comfy. If you were out where a breeze could hit you it might be bearable. But in a car? I suppose if you're the Navy Seal type who's been taught to enjoy sleeping in 100 degrees, ok. Otherwise I think you'll be awake in the heat until 3am, sleep for 3 hours, and then be awakened by the heat about 6am.

Your plan works for the "gonna be in Vegas one night, do I have to get a hotel room" trip where you won't die if you only managed to eek out 3 hours of sleep. Probably not a good long-term stragedy.

If you can't win an average of $100/day at the poker tables to cover modest food and lodgings, you have no business being in Vegas at all!

And WTF about taking a shower?!

I hope in hell that I don't have the misfortune to get seated next to you, if you go through with this tomfoolery!

Finally, I've been waiting for this thread for so long...

Anyone else? Parking lot recommendations?

Duh, I'll take showers in the sinks in the Rio bathrooms. C'mon now.

Security probably patrols the parking garage so you would have to be out of sight. But there are tons of huge supermarket parking lots in town which you can sleep in. Back when I was a homeless climbing bum I lurked around Vegas no problem.

That said, things are probably too hot already. It's 2am and my ac is running to keep my house at 80.

Bring a small battery operated fan to help with the heat.

Or better yet, get a room downtown or somewhere else off the strip where the prices are much lower.
