    I'm amazed that some of you know how many times you've been to Vegas. I just put 20 on my profile cause I know I've been there at least that many times. But it could have been 30 or 40 as well. My mind just doesn't store that kind of detail well.

    Anyway just wondering how accurate those numbers are on profiles.

    Mine should read greater than 20 less than 100.

    I, like you, guestimated based on the number of years we've been going and the average number of trips per year. I am also very bad at remembering to update that number when we've taking another trip...

    I have a spreadsheet dating back to early '99 that loosely tracks my spending. So I just had to count the "Vegas cash" withdrawals and add the trip I took in college. I could be off by one or two trips. But I'm fairly confident that I'm pretty close.

    BTW, don't ask where "Vegas cash" ranks in my list of expenditures. :eek:

    I only started going in 03 so it's not hard for me, but anyone over 20 baffles me to how they know! I have trouble at 8-9, and can't remember specific things from trips prior to 06' except my first around Christmas in 03!

    My count is accurate. I keep logs on different things, including my travel. I have all my Vegas trips logged by date, which property I stayed, shows I've seen, itinerary, etc.

    Yeah, I'm overly organized. LOL!!

    Started going to Vegas around the mid-80's. Went quite often in the late 80's and the early to mid 90's as well. Then slowed down the gambling and travelling.
    My total could be over 50, but from what I could remember, it's almost 40 times now in the last 30 years. :rolleyes2:

    I am just about at that point where I have to estimate as I can recall if I included last trip in that count.

    As my mini-profile shows in the upper right corner, we have made 50 trips.
    We started back in the 90's, doing one trip per year, which then became two trips per year. Now we do three trips per year ... planning 51, 52, and 53 this year.

    I have 22 under my belt with 2 more coming up in Feb so that will make it 24. Will probably hit around 27 - 29 by the end of the year hopefully more.

    I've only been a few times so I can easily remember the exact dates/why I went/who I went with.

    I started in 1968 and know the average number of trips a year and number of years. My profile was last updated 3 years ago so I can add another 14 trips since then

    Wow. This thread made me recount our trips. I had to change my profile and add 2 more. I'll admit, we cant recall all of them as far as where we stayed and exactly when we went. We do know that we started back in '06 and have been going twice a year. Last year we managed to squeeze in a 3rd trip late in the fall. We will probably do 3 trips again this year!

    Well I can't prove my number, so I'll just assume it is accurate even though I haven't updated the number for at least 6 trips. :)

    I've been a pretty frequent visitor since 1988 I guess, but my number's definitely inflated as most of my trips are business related... always with some fun time built in though.

    Mine is a conservative estimate. First trip out as an adult was 1977 to the old Aladdin on a gambling junket. Completely hooked and have been going out every year since, twice and sometimes 3 times a year. Don't remember ever making it out 4 times in a year.

    Mine is somewhat accurate. First trip in 1973 and at least 2 per year until we got married in 1981. After that, 4, 5 or 6 per year and I have no clue how to count the two years we lived in Vegas. 730? 365 times 2?:wink2:
