    Hello everyone! Greetings from Texas! I'm really glad I found this forum. My wife and I will be making our 2nd Vegas trip together (first trip was our honeymoon almost 3 years ago) in the middle of June. This will be my 6th Vegas trip though. I really love it out there. My hope is that we can start making 2 trips to Vegas each year, although it's hard to find time with our jobs. I just thought I knew a decent amount about Vegas... this forum opened my eyes! I'm looking forward to learning even more before we go again. Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and thanks!

    Welcome! But are you sure 2 trips a year is enough? ;)

    Thanks for the welcome! No, two trips a year isn't nearly enough! The problem is that I am a landscaper and my wife is a teacher. So when she gets her summer break I am busting my butt with work, and when I get a break in the fall/winter she is working her butt off. But I managed to carve out 3 days in June to go and I am hoping to start making a winter trip in December as well. We have other vacation spots that we enjoy going to so time must be made for those places as well! I love to gamble (BJ, VP, and poker) and my wife loves to see shows, so Vegas fits in quite well with our vacation wants.
