    I wen't last year and 2011.
    As a car fan I absolutely love it. The fact that it is in LV is a bonus!

    Are you going for the show?

    It's been driving me crazy getting all these email invites from my vendors at work.... Tried like hell to get my boss to send me for the week...

    I will be leaving Vegas just as Sema starts. At least I still get my trip, but it's on my own dime.

    Going for conferences on the company dime has it's pros and cons... if you're a pretty disciplined person, it can go off well, but if you're easily distracted by the "glitz and glamour", it can turn south in a hurry. It's nice to have the room and meals paid for, but it's also nice to go (on your own dime) and not have to worry about e-mails, texts, those pesky calls back to the office (when people find out you're in Vegas, EVERYONE has a reason to bug you!) You'll be there soon enough... hope you have a GREAT time!!!

    Thanks! :)

    Unfortunately I will still end up doing some work while I am there-- One of the downsides of no one else being trained to do my job.

    Yes, I am going for the show. I'll get in late on the 5th and am going to AAPEX on the 6th and SEMA on the 7th. I own a repair shop and have been into cars since I was a child.

    I'll be at the AAPEX side on Weds 11-5. Our company belongs to NARSA and has a booth, but I am there as a buyer and to check out the Chinese School Girls on the lower level, er, I mean to check out any new potential suppliers for our company.

    I had an 88' YJ and 2008 4 door JK. I guess I also had a 42' CJ-2A but it was in parts. I have since sold all three but am in the market for another 4 door wrangler or the new grand cherokee.
