    I've been spending lots of time reading posts over the past week. Lots of good information and shared experiences.

    I'm getting excited about my upcoming trip to Vegas 7/1 - 7/10 (first and last days just for travel). As always, I will stay with my brother who lives just five minutes from Red Rock. I was there in April with my husband, but this trip will be with a girlfriend. I'm hoping to duplicate my luck from April when I hit two royals.

    sybgal: Thanks!

    smartone: Do you get back this way often? We've talked about moving to Vegas, maybe in a year or two. We've got a house to fix up and sell first. Where do you usually play out there?

    There were a few years when I expected one or two royals on every trip. It worked that way for a while, but then there were some lean years. This has started out to be a good year - I've had nine royals so far. My husband whines about the fact that he doesn't get royals, but then he gets tired of playing VP after ten minutes. :rolleyes2:

    I came out with the immediate family in the late 70's, been here ever since. I live at Lake Tahoe (Nevada side), but rarely gamble, except for my monthly Vegas visits mostly for business. I like to play 2-3 hours of VP in the evenings for a couple days each month there. I've stayed at just about every major property in Las Vegas and have landed at the Hard Rock for the past three years or so. Part of it is for the ease of getting out of the place and up and down town for my business, which is tough from the Strip and part because I just love the energy and ambiance of the place.

    I get back there every couple years or so, as all of our extended family is still in the Akron area... Portage Lakes area.

    Hard Rock is one of the few properties out there that I've never been to. Perhaps I'll check it out this trip. I'll be with a friend who hasn't been to Vegas much, so we'll probably do some casino hopping.

    I live in the Portage Lakes area as well. Lots of boats out this month until the rains came.
