    Poll: How often do you come to Vegas? This means how many trips do you schedule on your own, purely for Vegas degeneracy? It does not include work trips, it means trips you schedule specifically to come to have a blast. Just curious!

    Wisconsin won't let me do more than that!

    3 times a year, sometimes 2. Most times solo.

    One day I'd like to take 5 or 6 trips like Joe. Maybe more.:D

    Averaging 4 times a year. If we don't make it at least four times the Vegas funk sets in with the only cure being to start planning our next trip...which I sometimes do on the last day of the current trip.

    Easier to make several trips a year when the flight is just over a hour.

    I try to come to Las Vegas once a year. I would love to get there much more often, but I live 6000 miles away (and my wife hates Vegas).:(

    I have gone one to two times a year since the early 90's. I always thought I wanted to go more often, so in 2014 I did. I went to Vegas 7 times that year, about every 6 weeks or so. I would stay 3 to 4 nights. It was exhausting and towards the end of the year it wasn't much fun. I now only go 2 times and find it much more enjoyable and have a great time.

    When I lived in Chicago it was 2-3 trips per year. Since I moved to So Cal, I do about 6 trips per year.
