Just wanted to finally say hello. I've been a long time reader of this forum and haven't gotten the nerve to post for whatever reason. I've been reading since around 2007 maybe and have finally decided to get "more involved" in the community that is VMB. Little background- I'm 26 years old. I live in East Texas. I'm married with a 14 month old baby boy. I've been to Vegas 25+ times in my life. I think my first trip was when I was about4 years old. We always stayed at the westward Ho in their big apartment complexes in the back. I loved the Ho. Me and my grandpa would saddle up at the little food court bar and eat the HUGE .99 cent hotdogs and shrimp cocktails while watching my grandma and parents bang out the video poker machines that sat right beside the bar. So I guess you could say I was kind of born into the Vegas culture. I've been on 6 trips since I've turned 21 including actually turning 21 in Vegas (longest 4 hour wait of my life). I also frequently visit the Shreveport/bossier city area, as it's only an hour from my front door,and make quiet a few trips down to Biloxi. Just wanted to say hello. If there are any questions I would love to answer. Also, wanted to give a solid thank you to Royal Flusher for the many downtime hours used up at work reading his trip reports.
