Hi all. I have been a member of several Vegas message boards, going back to 2001. Some are gone now. I am still active in one other small one. I may have even been a member of this one at one time, and forgotten about it! :confused2: Anyway, I have lost count of how many times I have been to Vegas, but I think about 10-12 or so, the first trip was in May of 2000. Can you tell I liked it? The last trip was in May 2 years ago, and I am missing it badly but owing to circumstances beyond my control don't know when I will get to go back. Just hope that I actually do get to! I am sort of a downtown guy, but have also stayed center strip and off strip. My favorite casino/hotel is the Golden Nugget. I enjoy mixing up the trip with excursions to other places if I have a car. My favorite was when we went to Zion N.P. in Utah. Also enjoy going to Laughlin if time permits. Have been to the Grand Canyon a couple of times, and Mt. Charleston twice. Would like to get to Death Valley one of these days. Don't care much for slots. I like blackjack, poker, craps, pai gow poker, and video poker. I don't eat in high priced places often, saving the money for gambling. Tried the atrium restaurant at the Plaza overlooking Freemont St last trip and found it overpriced, for what it was. I have the same feeling about the Range at Harrah's, although I understand that it is gone now. Anyway, I can answer questions about Vegas as long as you can live with an answer that is based on data at least two years old!
