Greetings all, I'm somewhat new to the board - a buddy of mine introduced me awhile ago with links to his TRs. Originally from Ohio and have been to Vegas anywhere from 15-20 times with 3 or 4 of those trips having occurred when I was underage and with the family. The best thing about the early trips was that while I could not gamble, I did everything else that wasn't gambling related which included going to all the casinos on both strips + Hoover Dam + etc so when I finally turned 21 I didn't have to mess around with it. In January of 2010 I moved to Qatar which is a very rich country located on a tiny peninsula in the Arabian Sea connected to Saudi - if anyone's interested in what it's like by all means I would be happy to share my experience. I have been here for more than 4 years but have still managed a trip to Vegas at least once each year. Last trip was in August and I will be going back in 3 weeks time so figured I would join the boards to do some follow up and show my wife a "proper" trip. We have been twice already but since she doesn't enjoy gambling as much it was more for me. This time I will be focusing on doing things we haven't done in the past - shows, dinners, spending more time by the pool. As it stands now we are booked for RRL on a friday evening for dinner then the 2nd and 3rd shows. Looking at doing a pool party on Sunday (friend's 42nd birthday) but it looks like the rates are going to be ridiculous so may have to come up with other options. Looking forward to the advice on these boards as the mods and folks on here all are very helpful and friendly.
