    I'm pretty sure people have done this before, I was there in Oct and the next planned visit is at the end of May, of course I get the Vegas blues between trips, so the other day I was looking at getting a few days off work as my next full week off is not till May when I go away. I managed to put some days together and then thought "I could squeeze a Vegas trip in there," the next hurdle was my wife and when I mentioned that I was having some time off in Feb when the kids were away she immediately replied with "your off somewhere, not Vegas again." She knows me too well, anyway the flight is not booked yet but all being well I should be in Vegas again in 4 weeks time.

    You look forward to your Vegas visits - I do too. I will be in Vegas in March, May, June, August, September, October and December and maybe a few other times, travelling from Boston.

    But I just found out I have another week's long trip to Bearsted, Kent in November. We have an office there. Very much looking forward to the British Pubs and a day or two playing tourist. Probably my 15th trip to England, and I've enjoyed them all!

    It sounds like you are trying to "Plan" an "Unplanned" trip haha! Trying to squeeze one in. To me an unplanned trip is an unexpected trip. Like missing your flight at LAX on the
    way home from a vacation and saying screw it lets drive to Vegas for a few more days! That happened to me & we washed our week old stinky clothes at a Vegas Coin Laundry.
    One of my fondest Las Vegas Memories! - Have Fun!

    That is certainly a spur of the moment trip and sounds fun, my trips are planned a few months in advanced so to put one together with a month of going is as close to as unplanned as I'm going to get, looks like we are going to be in town at same time.

    Our last trip was with them. Before that our last flight with them was 2010 too. They got expensive for a while.

    Yeah I looked at a few airlines and ways to go including a 2 stop but I plumped for US, it's just that 5 hour stint across from Philly to Vegas

    Have too many things to plan and arrange which mean spur of the moment trips to anyplace just don't work out.
