    Just curious if others are as addicted as I am LOL

    I usually do about 2-3 every year when I can afford it.

    Just booked my 3rd trip of the year for NFL opening weekend...Wooohooo! :beer:

    So far I went in March, April and May. Heading back in July for 5 nights then back in October. Next year will likely go only 3 times.

    The first year we went four times in like a six month period. The first trip hooked us and we kept going back.

    I had an 18mo break due to some family issues but I am back in the saddle beginning with the latest SB trip. I will end up going three times this year!

    I usually go twice a year. My record was 5 trips in one year, back when airfare was a little cheaper and I was working some overtime hours.

    Only two trips this year but the one in a couple of weeks is for 13 nights. Two trips is the least and we have done five trips once.

    2-3 times a year. This year it looks like just 2. I just came back and have a trip scheduled for October.

    We have visited LV twice a year since the early eighties. Our kids were young then and in school, so April and October were good times to go (a little easier on the sitters). We still go during those months, out of habit and good weather there.

    We sustained a clip of about 10 or so/year, with a peak of 18. Now we're down to 0.5 or so, maybe 0.33. But a trip or two are appearing on the horizon!

    I'll tell you what, though, if we'd have had to wing in like so many of you, rather than just starting the car and rounding the bend in Sloan three hours later, those numbers would've been way down.

    We used to do 1 or 2 per year, but in the last 3 years have been up to 3 times per year. Always do 3 or 4 nights max per trip.

    Last year we did Feb, July and Dec, this year we were there in May, going back in Sept and will probably go back right before Christmas again.

    Since we are not within driving distance (a definite advantage.....can't imagine how many we would take if that were the case....lol), we do 2 a year for the last 10 years....before that was once a year. Since we are now both retired, we have the time....just wish we had the money for airfare / gambling to increase it. Real jealous of you guys that can do 5-10 a year. I can only dream.... :)

    I'm a once a year visitor. Would love to be there more often, but work/distance/flight costs make it prohibitive compared to another vacation destination for me and the wife. Once a year keeps it fresh for us.

    We have been the last 2 years and will be back first week of Sept , that will be our first trip for 18 months . Living in the UK and having young kids makes our trips fewer than we would like (I would love to visit 2/3 times a year) getting time off , getting babysitters and the cost make it likely we will be visiting maybe every couple of years :(

    I started out at once a year and worked up to 3-4 times a year for a couple of years, but have had to scale back to once a year now.

    4 to 5 times a year for the past 15-20 years or so.

    We're in SoCal, so location is a huge advantage........but we always fly, never drive.
    I just do not understand the attraction of driving there..............................that's 4+ long hours of sobriety! :thumbsdown: :beer:

    I also do 3-5 a year and have since 80's. I've been going since the late 60's and I do drive but it's because I have my golf clubs and I can get there in only an hour more than flying and checking my clubs takes.
    Also I then have my car to go wherever.
