    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! :rolleyes2:

    Many years ago another board had a big get together at the Monte Carlo.... April 2002?
    i was going and sipsey was going but didn't have a room booked.
    Though we posted on the message board we had never met...
    He inquired about sharing my room....so we talked on the phone a couple times and agreed.
    Now, we still don't know if each of is an axe murderer, or whatever...
    I just figured he was a regular guy from down south...
    Had a room at the Old Coast and said I would be in the blackjack pit when he arrived.
    So this nerdy, J/K guy asks if I am me.... and I was.
    I gave him his key and went to put his bag away and would be back.
    Comes back, sits down at the table and we're talking and gambling..
    CW comes by and I order a beer and he ordered something like a double martini???
    I said, this guys gonna be OK...

    he and I started this standing bet when we or either of us rolls the bones. A $5 hard 8 parlay...
    One very very late night during another get together a few of were shooting at the Rio.
    I get the dice, got a point of 8, threw down a red on hard 8 and a couple rolls later it hits..
    as the dealer is pushing me the chips i say let it ride, off on the come...
    I get another point and several rolls later 4+4=$500...
    since steve was hurting cash wise, i took the chips... had i been alone i would have gone for the 5g's

    ps. that nativesocat who posted above was there and can verify the story about the H8
