    Just a quick message to let you all know that I've been to vegas from january 27 to 31. And I miss that damn city so much.

    Damn I would be there right now. Wake up right next to the strip, have breakfast at Mon ami Gabi, then walk to all the casinos, have a couple drinks, watch a show, walk again on the strip at night...

    That city is absolutely amazing. Can't wait to go back ... :(

    Back to reality ...

    The only cure to missing Vegas is planning your next trip. I used to start on the plane ride home, now I have two future trips planned and want to start booking a third. It's a downward spiral.

    Worst part of my trip is always sitting on the plane waiting to take off to go back home. :cry:

    I know this feeling. Upon landing and walking to get my bags, I see all the people sitting waiting for their flights home and it depresses me thinking about it so I rush past the gates as fast as possible. Then when the trip is over and I am sitting waiting to board my flight is when I miss it the most. I book real early flights home so I do not sit while others are arriving, at least I miss out on being jealous of those arriving who now have their whole trip in front of them. :cry:

    I go at least twice a year, usually three times. Due to us getting our house ready to sell and other reasons, I am looking at the distinct possibility of going only once this year. It's looking like it will be a full year between trips. At this point, four months from my last trip, I am starting to shake. Yes, you could say I am missing Vegas. :cry:

    What I do when coming out of the gate is point and laugh at all the people leaving! Nanner nanner, boo boo, I just got to Vegas and you are leaving! Although I know I will be one of those sad faces leaving in like 4-5 days!

    It's "The McCarran Death March". :evillaugh
    .
    I always make sure I look at their faces -
    Haulin' all their junk...begrudgingly...draggin' suitcases...
    ...dead tired.......some sunburned......all looking older
    than they were a couple days ago....hardly speaking
    ...you don't see ANY excitement on their faces -- as
    opposed to the LOUD / VIBRANT / FAST WALKING crowd
    going the other way.:thumbsup:

    Well said... McCarran is always one of my favorite "people watching" experiences and exactly as you stated!

    I'd rather sit in the airport for a flight home than have to drive 5 hours. That's the worst.

    The only good thing about that trip back was that I tried the video poker at McCarran even though I heard that theyre the tightest slots you can get.

    But first 1,25 bet that I did, got quad jacks and won 85$ :D Not bad.

    Can't wait to go back to vegas. Can't. Wait.

    I relate. Just there 2 months ago, already obsessed with the July trip. I love airports. I'm not one of those sad sacks going home though. I'm ready to go after a week. A person can only take so much sensory overload. I play Airport Deuces at the airport for $20 double or nothing on the way home, too. I HAVE to have a next trip in the works at all times :thumbsup:

    Feltbettor- I ONLY go during our winter. Why go during summer here, when we only have 3 months of great weather and it is miserable in Vegas? So yes, I know exactly what you are saying.
