    So we are down to 12 days before departure to Vegas again. That time line keeps changing! Last Saturday I decided I needed to get there a day earlier! Thanks to Southwest airlines that was only 20.00 per person... Up the car rental another day, rates went down 38.00, since now we are offically there for a full 7 days. Now to find a affordable hotel for 1 night, since we will be staying at the Wynn (part of the slot tourney)Mon-Wed, Paris (comp) Wed-Fri and Fremont (always have to stay d-town a night or two) Fri-Sun.... Thank you MyVegas game on facebook, we got a night at The Mirage for the cost of some of the LP points, only have to pay the resort fee. (We could have had Rio a comp, but thought we would try something new).

    Now I'm at the point, I just want to move it all up AGAIN! I feel like a 10 year old with ants in my pants. Time is standing still and I'm just anxious to get on vacation and get the heck out of town and away from work for a week! Its been a very long year with a lot of ups and downs at work and at home. We are very GLAD to see this year end, I just hope to end it on a high note...

    No one around us understands our love of Vegas and desire to keep going back.. So thank you guys for always having some great posts and keeping my love alive for Vegas!

    We're envious of you guys being able to change your flights. With minor exceptions, Delta adds a $150 "screw you" fee for any flight changes! We wouldn't mind adding two or three more nights to the 7 free ones already booked (obligations have changed and we've received additional room offers), but it's essentially impossible. As if the hefty change penalty wouldn't be bad enough, we're using a companion ticket this time, which goes away entirely if any changes are made. There's a lot to be said for Southwest!

    we have done the same things more times thah I care to admit.

    we book a trip and say "that should be long enough" and then decide longer would be great and usually get dinged with an airline rip off fee.

    we usually find good deals on the room which I always book separately so that works out ok.

    after so many trips and length varying form 6 nights to 12 nights and the excitement to get back never wears off.

    nothing like it!

    That's funny. I'm 12 days out from a short trip too. Still trying to figure out what I want to see and do.

    No Ron from our side of America 4 days is NOT enough... You only do slight damage on the liver in 4 days!

    Thats what I have to keep telling myself, that even though we might have paid a few extra dollars upfront, its now paid for itself. We had a delta flight last month when we went racing with our family in the south and I wasnt at all impressed with them overall... I guess I am just used to southwest and their 'quarks'

    Yep, I've learned that through the years, book separately! deals always seem to pop up! Thats the thing, we think yep that should be more than enough time to not get bored! (and we always come home with a list of still TOO DO things

    Well this is our sixth trip and believe it or not besides gambling, we havent stayed at the same place twice or done the same thing... Each trip has been new every time, always plenty to do, just deciding what to do is the hard part!

    Oh, dont tell my family that, they keep thinking we will get this out of our systems soon. I dont think so, my grandfather LOVED Vegas and he just passed away this year, so I think I got it from him...His Birthday will be the 17th, so I'm going to play his favorite game in is honor that day and play for him.

    Thanks everyone!!!
