    Some of them are interested, some just ignore me ...
    And, some ask, "Why do you keep going out there so often?" . We just tell them, "Because there is absolutely NO place like it !" .

    Family more than friends.

    A few years ago I managed to convince my parents to come to Vegas with me, and though they enjoyed it while there, the most I can get out of them now is "It was nice". Then they roll their eyes when I talk about my latest/next trip.

    No - because I don't really talk about it or mention when I am going. I just go. They already know I go 10-12 times a year, so there is not much to talk about on an ongoing basis.

    When I was still working, retired 4+ years now, my co-workers knew I was the Vegas junkie and always wanted to talk about it before their trips.
    So the answer is no.
    Of course I didn't go on to other people that this and that was better in Vegas. But if they brought it up, I was happy to talk.

    Never been told specifically to 'shut up' but have a few friends who roll their eyes when I bring it up.

    The response I usually get goes something like, "...well...I work too hard for my money to take it to Vegas....."

    Not realizing that Vegas is one actually one of the most affordable tourist things you can go to, if you are smart about your money.

    Most of our friends and co workers love it as much as we do so we get to share experiences.

    My friends and family know I am the Vegas Junkie.LOL

    Recently, a very good friend of mine commented, the only facebook post' I see on your wall are the Vegas "likes" etc. I just laughed and said, "they are the only ones that count." By the way, she is going to Vegas in November and I am her Vegas informant.LOL

    I even recommeded she join this board, I told her it would save her money and she would learn so much.

    My husband and I will be in Vegas Sept. of this year, so I will have TONS of things to report to her about.

    And my trip report will be a novella, I'm sure. Hubby says, I never know when to stop chatting.LOL

    I make at least one trip per year but have a general policy of not talking about it unless someone else brings it up. People either "get it" or they don't so I try to keep it to myself...

    ...that's what Vegas forums are for. :)

    I figure if I have to listed to friends about Nascar, Disney, The Patriots, The Yankees, etc., I damn well better be able to talk about my love too.

    I pretty much have a Don't Tell policy.

    They just don't get it and they probably never will. Here's to hoping...
