    Hello Everyone,

    I've been on the boards here for some time but never really got around to posting, thought maybe it was time I post an intro and be a little more involved in the tom-foolery :)

    I'm Matt, 31 y/o IT professional in the Twin Cities - I've been to Vegas a few times in the past, but haven't been in probably 2-3 years which is of course way too long! We moved to a new home a little over a year ago and our neighboors are big vegas fanatics which got me itching to go again, so I have a guys weekend booked in September for myself and a good friend of mine. Then maybe if I'm lucky I can get another trip in before the end of the year. Next year hoping for a Summer work trip and we'll see what else we might be able to squeeze in. Have a wonderful wife, no kids, yadda yadda. We're usually out on the boat in the summer, traveling somewhere warm or wishing we were in the winter.

    Anyway really love all the great information on this site, would love to grab a drink and meet some of ya'll sometime in vegas if or paths happen to cross!

    Duluth also.....welcome to another member from the land of 10,000 lakes. I just returned last week from a great nine day trip to my favorite city. It is going to be another long year before I get to go again.

    Rochester here... I only get out there once a year, keep hoping I can start doing 2 a year, but hasn't worked out that way. Oh well, maybe when I retire! Usually trip it out there end of March beginning of April.
