    Been going to Vegas for 23 years and following most of you vicariously through VMB for several years as a guest. First 20 years always went with a group of 8-10, usually as the chosen leader. As can happen with "long term relationships" the coveted trips turned into soap operas. I grew tired of the drama and blame game and shyed away from the glitz for awhile. Gleaned from others trip reports on this site the utopia of doing Vegas as a solo. By no means a high roller, but evidently enough to garner room comps and a little free play twice a year. So next trip has me leaving next Thursday October 16 for five nights and was asked today by a coworker when I leave. Without hesitation I blurted out 191 hours till wheels up! With a little more training maybe i can grow up to be a degenerate too!:thumbsup: Just want to thank all those that post information and trip details that helps keep the countdowns bearable! Won't be doing a live trip report as it is just me and I will need to keep track of my money, room key, and drinks. I only have two hands and fully believe in keeping a drink in each (it is a desert for crying out loud)! Wish me luck and if you are there next week maybe I will "See U N Vegas"!

    I either stay at NYNY or Monte Carlo. This trip I will be next door at NYNY but enjoy spending time at Monte Carlo every trip so maybe we will run into each other. Good luck!

    Very first thing when you get to your room, take a picture of the room number. Once outside, take a picture of the hotel. It shouldn't be hard to remember which hotel you are in, but you can always just show the cabbie a picture if you're too smashed to speak. Of course, you may not be coherent enough to remember you took pictures! Have fun! I'm jealous! :beer::wave:

    I had a recent unintentionally solo trip, and really ended up enjoying myself. I hope to repeat sometime

    My degeneracy really hit me last night when I was trying to figure out hockey betting. There was nothing else on.
     
    I need one more trip to up my frequent flier level
