    Just booked a two nighter departing in a couple of weeks. The cheap flights and free rooms are going to get me in trouble one of these days but, until then, game on! :drunk:

    We almost never go for less than three nights so I gotta tweak my Vegas plan of attack a bit, less meandering, more gaming, definitely more cocktails. Probably not enough time for hookers and blow but, it never hurts to leave options open. :evillaugh

    So what's the problem? :)

    On one hand you will have more time devoted to gaming but on the one hand you have little time for some R and R.
    I find that on the super short trips my casino hopping starts to feel like a 12 hour a day job. It gets old fast!
    I enjoy being able to just relax and get away from the casinos for a while. So for that I like 3-4 day visits.
    5 days or longer and I'm getting bored and wanting to go home. My shortest trip was about 2 and a half days.

    We usually go for 4 nights but have a 3 night booked.

    This means our daily budget will be slightly higher than normal. It should make for an exciting time. I would figure that if you condensed your budget to only two days you will have one hell of a good time. :beer:

    I fail to see the problem...:poke:

    I wish I lived a little closer to an airport that happens to be closer to Vegas (1.5 hours from Indy - then a 3.5-4hr flight). It has been hard to find flights less than 375 roundtrip, nonstop SW. I would love to venture out there more often than I do now.

    You have a habit.

    Whether that is a problem is entirely up to you.

    I have been known to put Las Vegas down on my list of hobbies when filling out a form so, I guess I have a hobby not a problem. :thumbsup:

    Besides my layovers with the airline. Most of my trips are 2 to 3 days max now. But I sometimes spend 12 hours or a smidge more in town if i'm trasnitioning from east coast to west coast. Gives me a little break in traveling and some cheap entertainment. Ditto on the way back east. If I have the time I schedule a 1 niter in vegas to relax a little.

    We've done a couple of 2-nighters (also from Colorado). Fun, but not very relaxing as you're always trying to pack everything you can into a short period of time. But you're so right - cheap flights and free rooms are sooooo tempting!!
