    Hi guys,
    I'm about to start packing for my trip to Vegas, and I wonder. What are your essentials to pack?, I mean other than clothes. I always pack a neck pillow for the flight and my mp3 player. So VMB what is on your travel kit?

    In my carry on bag...travel pillow, Ipod shuffle/headphones, tablet, and a sweater. I also pack a few snacks. Coming from the east coast, my travel day is long. I don't have a real meal until I get to Vegas. I always check a bag so everything else I need is in there.

    I think Zen about covered it; I have a stack of players cards and money clip that I only use in Vegas. Sunscreen (it's much cheaper here than there), cigar case for carrying my cigars, and passport. I keep my drivers license on me at all times, but I like to have my passport in my room just in case something happens to my license. Never needed it, but I don't want to be stuck in Vegas with no ID!

    Foam earplugs, an economy sized bottle of Tylenol, and a smoked ham and I'm good to go.

    Rapid Release pain meds
    Tylenol PM for flight home
    empty water bottle
    earbuds, chargers
    Starbucks via packs
    sour patch kids, other non-melting candy
    players cards & coupons, groupons
    extra strength Bengay for knees

    ...my list has changed over the years LOL I will probably start packing a few nips, now that I've read that you can get them through TSA in the oversize Ziploc. Can anyone confirm this? The nip sized bottle of St. Germaine does wonders for so-so "champagne" from CVS

    Though these items aren't for LV only, I always keep a zip bag in my suitcase with: pen, paper, paper clips, rubber bands, one of those small flashlights, twist ties, rubber door stop, etc. These oddball items have come in handy more than once.

    An emery board nail file (although I have found that if it's a small nick in my nail, the surface of the striking area on a pack of matches works well in a pinch)

    I want to travel with BlacklabberMike - he obviously knows how to party! I will bring the nailpolish if he gets any runs in those stockings...

    I always wear those big headphones on the plane, the sound-proof target shooting ones, bc I am highly sensitive to sound. I never use lipbalm, except in Vegas. Always have a bottle of water in my bag. In my suitcase I bring a Swiss army knife, nailclippers and a wine opener. Camera battery charger (yes, I'm officially old bc I still use a camera! LOL). Ativan and/or Gravol for the flight so I can catch a few ZZZzzzz's before I get off the plane and inhale the electric atmosphere that does not permit me to sleep.

    I just bring socks and underwear, spare outfit and an extra top, bc I don't really do fancy stuff, and trust me, Vegas has seen worse. I also pack a tube of Pringles for my pal and a box of Pinot Grigio, so she can "attitude adjust" in the room as we unpack before going down to gamble.

    I travel semi-frequently so I have a more or less permanently packed travel bag. I just fill it up with the clothes and a few other things I think I'll need for the trip and go.

    Good instant coffee (starbucks, etc)
    Breakfast bars
    Dental floss
    Ear plugs
    Aspirin
    Moisturizer (skin not used to desert)
    Toothbrush
    Mouthwash
    Milk thistle or other liver support works wonders to ensure not feeling pookie with Vegas debauchery
    Play money, play money, play money

    PS Have an AMAZING 30TH! Yeara ago before hubby, I actually took a solo trip to Disneyland at 34, and had a blast. Solo trips can be amazing....ENJOY.

    For the flight:
    a book (that I usually don't find the need for, as I buy magazines at the airport + spend most of the time on watching in-flight movies)
    headphones
    hand lotion
    wet wipes

    Other:
    unnecessary huge amounts of makeup and other beauty products/accessories
    myvegas coupons if I have any
    sunscreen
    a little cash

    For Vegas, I always have two things in my travel bag:
    Lip balm
    Saline nasal spray

    Coming from moist Seattle, the dry air in Vegas wreaks havoc. I find those two things really help.
