    Well what started as a trip to LV with me and my usual buddy has now turned into me, my GF, a couple we hang out with and my buddy bringing a buddy of his.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention, this group includes four first timers!!! I am dusting off my tour guide cap as we speak! It has been two years since I have taken any first timers. I am really looking forward to this trip as I have a ton of fun with all of these folks, also taking the extra couple takes some heat off me entertaining the GF!!

    We are staying at Ballys and so far the agenda looks like this. Arriving on Thurs Feb 21, staying five nights. We have tickets for Carrot Top , a club crawl, and a scooter car tour of red rock canyon. I think I will also take everyone to Absinthe, as the group will def appreciate the humor of Gazillionaire!! I have seen Carrot Top and Absinthe, but I still am very much looking forward to both again.

    I am a little nervous about making sure everyone gets the most out of their trip, but I dont think it will be a problem. The couple we hang w all of the time and they are drama free and very fun loving!! :drunk: times for sure!

    Good luck Ron!:thumbsup:
    I hate being the tour guide.:nono: It's gotten to the point where I just say we will be at XX at XX time. Want to join us, fine. If not, also fine.

    I will no longer put up with "oh, I don't know, what do you want to do" This is what WE are doing. Just too many days ruined by indecision over the years.

    Yeah, I know what you mean!! My GF and I have had this planned for at least a month, so we already bought tix to events, I sent them the links to the things we had bought and they did the same. The trip is pretty well planned out, and I am excited about her having a girlfriend to hang with and take the heat off me.

    Ron sounds like a great time enjoy it! And I'm sure GF will have a great time too! I'm jealous, that's the time we usually go around for my husbands birthday (will be spending it at the Cleveland casino and attached hotel ~ Total rewards keeps wanting to give me free rooms on the weekends there, no problem) It sounds like you have a great group of friends going! People keep asking about going with us to Vegas, as well as we get along with them, I'm not sure I'm ready to do all the touristy stuff again :)

    Have done it 3 times so far

    Dont mind it every 2 or 3 years ,I do enjoy going back to Valley of Fire,Mt Charleston, Red Rock but not constantly.Still havent done the jet boat ride from Laughlin to Lake Havasu yet,I think you have to stay over in Laughlin to catch the trip in the AM.We've driven to Lake H once ,still would love to take that ride down the Colorado River.

    Yeah, I am excited to take the GF, last three trips have been "guy trips" because she couldnt go due to work. I am burned out on the guy trips, I figured since I have to do the touristy stuff w her anyways, may as well take the couple we always hang w back home and break everyone in all at once. Everyone says they want to attend the annual Labor Day weekend trip, so there wont be any tour guiding necessary on that trip.

    Funny you mention birthdays, out of the 6 going 4 of us have March birthdays! Three of those are in the first 11 days of March, so its an early birthday celebration as well.
