    So I have finally cleared the 50 day threshold and I am starting my every ten day reminder emails to my wife. I've been to Vegas in spring of 2015 and early this year, but those were both for conferences so I was kept busy. Any Vegas is better than no Vegas, but this upcoming trip will be my first agenda-free vacation since our 2014 anniversary trip. To say I'm excited is an understatement!

    I joined here summer of 2015 and visited nearly daily until just after my trip this February (I only cleared 100 posts until then so I never even got to have two countdown timers up, like all the cool kids!) Then things got busy at work and home, and I hadn't checked in here until about a week ago. What sucked is I had just started learning who all the usual suspects were around here. Anyway, when I logged back in I figured I would go back to where I left off and wouldn't have missed a thing.

    Yeah, right. On the Misc. Vegas Chat forum there were like 11 pages of new posts! My OCD kicked in but I realized I just wasn't going to be able to catch all of it back up. Point being, this place never stops, just like Las Vegas itself, and apparently generates a huge amount of traffic. Kudos to the folks that run this place for making this a great place for us Vegas People to hang out and share.

    So anyway no real point to this post I guess but it sure is a lot better seeing double-digit days on my countdown timer, rather than 365+ like it was at one point! Glad to dive in to the forums as a somewhat newbie here all over again!

    :haha: Yeah, if you're gone awhile, it can be kind of overwhelming. We average about 275-500 posts per day here, depending on the day of the week.

    Glad you are back and have a countdown timer. Sure wish I had one. ;)
