    Bored in the ghetto WT backyard "kiddie pool" with the kids today awaiting the dusk light show and started counting how much of my life has been spent in Vegas.

    For me we counted 150 nights, so about 5 months. Not bad. I figure I should be able to get to a year in my lifetime. Not a big record, but for me it's just as serious as Tiger chasing Jacks 18 majors. In fact I train year-round!

    As an oldie, I just figured that I've spent ± 252, about 75% of them are solo trips. This surprises me. :rolleyes2:

    I think that I've got to be at about 6 months, figuring that we spend about 3.5 days on average and that's probably a little conservative.

    You know, that actually makes me feel like I should be going more often. :evillaugh

    I'm good for 3-6 days a month or thereabouts for the past 10 years or so.

    Does living there for almost 2 years count?

    If not, 3-5 trips per year since 1974. Got to go watch the fireworks now, no time to do math.:evillaugh

    I can't remember the total number of trips anymore, but I'm estimating in the 150-175 day range.

    42 trips, none of them shorter than a week, many of them longer.

    I figure I am at a year.

    15 trips adds up to 68 nights in Vegas. That works out to be 0.32% of my life. I would love to get that percentage above 1% after I retire.

    I've stayed a total of 40 nights over 10 trips in the last eight years...or as I prefer to say, not near enough! Looking forward to upping that # by four nights later this year!

    I think 2009 was my peak year.....47 nights by my count. I keep thinking had I not been so lucky to enjoy a high level of family responsibilities, I could live in Vegas about 4 months/year with a decent bankroll. That would be awesome though prob get bored of hookers and blow every day. Gag

    Our trips are usually only 2 nights each time. Once a year I spend 7 nights for business/pleasure. So maybe about 30days average a year the last 4 years. Maybe another 10days the past 10 years before that.

    So maybe around 200 days in my lifetime.

    The actual time spent in the city is one thing, but how about time spent thinking about being in Vegas or on Vegas chatboards.... LOL

    Too much per my significant other.
