    I double dog dare you to try and stick to this schedule. Scheduling your time in Vegas is about as pointless as trying to find a $3 blackjack table at Bellagio on a Saturday night!

    Of course I wish I did try to schedule sometimes. I've been to Vegas over 10 times and still never seen that darn Pirate show at Treasure Island!

    Two things- 7.5 hours at the bar in NY NY makes you a golden god, and I am so jealous. Also, you forgot to factor in how much time its gonna take to come to Jackson, Wyoming and pick me up...

    I agree.. good luck with the plans...
    mine usually look like ladiesman...
    drink, gamble, drink, party at a club, drink, golf, gamble, gamble, gamble, drink, sleep a little, and then it starts again.

    Vegas is the only place in the world that i have been drunk 4, 5 times per day.

    Wow.. i love Vegas...Vegas Babay!, Vegas
    t-30 days.

    My wife has a similiar agenda planned out. Wanted to get visit every hotel on the strip. We managed to do it (mostly, missed a couple), but by the time she was done, she said there was no time to relax. If you try to stick to a schedule, you'll end up needing a vacation from the vacation. Be flexible, and you'll have more fun.

    I find it stressful to follow an itinerary. I do that for work when I'm on a promo tour so I would feel like I'm working.

    IMO, the best thing to do is make a "wish list" with the places you would like to visit during your stay and play it by ear. More fun, less stress.

    Have a great trip!

    I'm going to Vegas March 18 thru March 22 with my sister. I have our whole Itinerary planned also. I'm happy to see I'm not the only one who does this. Were doing a sister trip, we lost our youngest sister last May, but we are taking along some of her ashes so she'll be with us.(no we won't be leaving any of her behind when we leave) We think she is quite amused at all our planning back and forth and our daily countdown viva email. We are looking forward to our first sister trip together. My sister lives in another state 4 hrs away so she is driving to my house so we can fly together. I have gone to Vegas every October for the 14 years with my hubby. So anyone that is in Vegas when we are, if you see two Crazy middle age ladys laughting and almost pissing their pants that would be us. [​IMG]

    A wise man once told me...
    "You can't drink all day unless you start early in the morning"

    Good luck sticking to that schedule.
    T-14 days for myself. Looking forward to it immensely.
