    Hi All

    First time poster - 4th time visitor! Home town is London, UK and have just booked up our 4th trip to Vegas this August!

    Epic (long) road trip planned from Houston to Vegas and back to Houston - don't ask why (but air mile availability with BA is a big clue)!!

    Our route takes us from Houston to Amarillo, Albuquerque, Vegas, Scottsdale, El Paso, San Antonio, and ending back in Houston. A fair amount of mileage but we do enjoy those drives!

    Vegas allows us 5 nights in the middle of the trip. Look forward to utilising this board as we get nearer!!

    Take-off August 14th, Vegas August 17th!! Hotel already booked - our usual Signature @ MGM.

    Bye for now!!

    Welcome, fellow Brit! Quite the road trip you have planned there, i'm sure you'll love every second of it. Sounds nice getting to see more of the USA than just the Strip.

    Thanks all :)

    I have it down at roughly 1,500 miles each way so over 5 days not too bad. Its 4 days there, 5 days in Vegas, and 5 days back so fairly realistic.

    Can't wait!

    I'm a big fan of driving to Vegas. However, that drive back from Vegas is always so much longer than the drive to get there. ;)

    Enjoy it!
