A new year has come and I am currently in the process of trying to plan out a trip. I am debating on going during spring break at the end of March, which I would more than likely take my 15 year old with me. The other two times I am thinking is sometime in April and again I would possibly have to bring him or in July/Aug sometime while he is with his mom. Not a huge fan of summer heat in Vegas but can tolerate it. I wanted to do a drive out but I don't think the money will be there to take that much time off work. I was looking at packages from Expedia and can do a round trip plus 5 nights at Flamingo for $440 per person or for an extra 200 per person Mandalay Bay which I think is pretty darn good. I could go a shorter amount of time but my last trip was five nights and I thought it felt like the perfect amount of time. I e-mailed my host at Downtown Grand and there is not much they can do for me, I was hoping for some comp nights but they are unable. I do have three comp nights in March/April at a few of the caesars properties. I need to play with the cost of rooms and stuff with comps and see how I can work it out for the best bang for the buck. Another concern is budget. Getting there and food wont be an issue, like I have said many times, I eat inexpensively but if my son comes, well, he could out eat most grown men. I am going to look at all of my options and see what comes of it. I did put in for vacation time in April from work, we bid for it so I do not even know if I will win the bids for another couple weeks I am guessing. Just wanted to say thanks for keeping my Vegas addiction fueled for the past several months when I could not be there, here is hoping for another fun trip this year that I can share with you all.
