    This is my longest stretch w/o a trip to Vegas in decades. Haven't been there since May and my countdown clock still reads 51 days. I've got the itch.:cry:

    We will make up for it by going in Oct, Nov & Dec but a 5 month hiatus is killing me.

    Joe, what are your dates for October as we will also be there for a Sept / Oct / November stretch run.

    I started off slow this year, and am making up for it with 4 monthly trips in a row.

    It sounds like you are so primed that you will really appreciate it when you arrive.

    it could be worse, I'm not quite 3 months into my 2-year hiatus. well i guess i'm over 10% done so that's not bad.

    Vegas is turning into a hobby like golf for me. I'm still a huge fan, but I can take it or leave it as far as actual participation goes.

    Holy cow what a countdown clock!! What happened to May next year?

    Yeah, my view of Vegas has dramatically changed over the years also, but it still falls in the "covers all my vacation needs" department.

    I hear you. The buffoons are gathering again and it happens to be the one weekend in the fall that I am supposed to be somewhere else.

    I'm not sure when I'll get back to Vegas. I hope it's not next spring. :eek:

    Joe: I feel your pain, but have a solution. As you know, I also was looking at a hiatus between early July's trip and the end of October, which wasn't nearly as long a gap as you're facing. So, I gave in a couple weeks ago and booked a solo trip for the second week in Sept. Problem solved! :D

    When we began to think about moving back to the frozen tundra, we each made one of those positive/negative lists and then compared them.

    We each had weather and year round golf on the positives and that was about it. The negative list was much longer. Before anyone jumps to conclusions, we actually were ahead for gambling when we lived there.

    Of course my wife hitting 9 royals in the first 9 months we lived there had a bit to do with that. I was a slacker and only hit 6.

    You think that's bad. The only thing keeping me from going this weekend is self control. Now THAT sucks. :(

    It'd be easier if I straight up couldn't afford it or get the time off.

    Five days and counting for me. Exactly one year since my last trip. I'm in a good place. I could happily do twice a year but waiting one to two years (gasp) just makes the trips that much more exciting. Now that I'm under a week I'm getting pretty pumped!
