    Can I second and third this please. I actually learned my last trip that I need to show up one morning and leave the next night. Otherwise it is just a waste of recovery time where it can get expensive. I go balls to the walls first night every time and on my longest trip of 6 days 5 nights over Memorial Day weekend, I came home in really bad shape lol!

    We are the same. Take it easy, it will still be there tomorrow.

    Did you decide what day for Milos yet?

    We have firm things planned for Sunday afternoon 4th, Tuesday evening 6th and are moving hotels Friday 9th. Everything else is flexible.

    You are welcome to join us Sun and Tues if you would like.

    Also, what night are you seeing Rod?

    Looks like some fantastic plans luci; I don't envy you the long flight but you have lots of time in Vegas so nice that you can pace yourselves and get some relaxation in as well. Enjoy!!

    Thanks for your kind words.

    I am not looking forward to the flight, especially as we have 2 connections instead of the one we have been accustomed to the past few trips. Once we have floiwn over the pond I feel I should be right there in Vegas, not have another 4.5 hour flight. Unfortunately we are connecting in Amsterdam and Detroit. Usually when we do 2 connections I try to book LAX or SFO as it is just a short flight from there.

    I am now toying with seeing Rose. Rabbit. Lie. although I know nothing about it. The Identity card 2 for 1 had piqued my interest, but I don't know where I am going to fit it in.

    Have you seen it pebbles?

    That is the night we are at the Mirage. Still possible though.

    Did you get your tickets with your Identity card or on an offer? I can't work out the difference in the prices of the tickets and what more you get for your money with the more expensive ones.
