    I joined a little over a month ago. Sorry it took me so long to introduce myself. I live in Houston. I've been to Las Vegas five times. First trip was in December 2009. Other trips have been: April 2010, December 2010, September 2011, & April 2012. I stayed at the MGM Grand my first four trips. I stayed at Bally's for the fifth trip. Trip number six is this December. The 11th though the 14th. I'll be staying at Treasure Island (TI). My room will be a "Strip View" room. I like to get to Vegas early in the day. I'm there by 9am. I like to take a lot of pictures & videos while I'm there. See some attractions & shows. Try different buffets for breakfast each morning. Try to take as much in as I can.

    Welcome, neighbor!

    There are several here who live in the Houston area. Hubby and I live in the Clear Lake/NASA area.

    Enjoy your upcoming trip!

    I just got home from near that area. I went to the Kemah Boardwalk for the Texans Kickoff party. A lot of fun.

    Warm welcome from Houston Texas!!! We have many Houston gamblers & fun lovers of this boasrd. It would be fun to have a meet at L'Auberge, Lake Charles (LDL), while we are counting fingers for the next Vegas trip. It's very convenient to ride the casino bus for having just a couple hours of play over there.

    I'll try to do proper 'trip report' for my sixth trip in December in the 'trip report' section.

    Today I uploaded a few videos to my April 2012 (5th) trip set on Flickr. There are more on the way. I'm just uploading the ones I think are the most interesting.

    xman, you have some awesome photos!! You may want to post your links in the trip report forum to share them with more members. Unfortunately, a lot of members don't always look at this forum. I truly think they are worth sharing. :thumbsup:

    I figured that because some of the trips are over two years old that wouldn't be a good idea. I plan on doing a trip report with pictures & videos for my trip in five weeks in the 'Trip Report' section.

    It's no problem, sometimes people post old trip reports but if you want to wait, that's ok too. I'm looking forward to seeing your photos. :thumbsup:

    Hello XMan from Austin. Awesome pictures man. I need to get off my butt and really get with the picture taking. I am going to miss you in Vegas by 2 days because we leave the 9th for home or I'd have a drink with you guys. Maybe on a spring trip. Good luck to you guys.
