After our annual trip in January, I don't want to think about Vegas

    Now it's at the half way mark and bought tickets, reserved the rooms, getting car rentals, watching youtube Vegas channels.

    It's funny right after the trip and well into spring I have Vegas out of my system now I'm getting the itch big time.

    I could definitely do Vegas every 6 months I guess. This seems to be the case every year.

    That usually happens to me on the flight home.

    Yeah most trips I've had so much fun, I'm immediately thinking about when I can come back!

    I certainly remember those days. Hell, on occasion I had booked my next trip while still on the current trip in Las Vegas.

    That said, I still have a wonderful time while I am there. However, I find after each trip, it takes a little longer get feeling right. The vegas hang-over so to speak.

    As well, increased airport security, continually poor airline service, the continuous hurry up and wait at the airport and the general inconvenience of air travel, is all taking its toll on my excitment to return to LV.

    That said, I have travelled to LV 34 times in the past 20 years, so Im not likely to stop, perhaps just slow down a little.

    Shooting for 16 trips in the last 6 years myself, so I know that goes. And some of those trips have been thanks to Frontier Airlines. But for rt flights less than $100, I am willing to deal with inconvenience!

    Ya know I have NEVER had an "Alone" trip to Vegas with the Wifey and I. It is always with a group, while groups can be fun maybe that's what hurts always running to do what others want. I bet if I do a wife and I trip things would be different.

    We travel alone to Orlando and could book the next trip immediately.

    My gf has that issue with Orlando (mainly Disney). Haha

    But yeah, if you haven't had a trip alone it could be better. Especially if your Vegas "habits" are pretty compatible with each other.

    I thought there was a creme for it, but I was admonished by my pharmacist.
    Turns out it's not named Vegasil. Plus, that's for another itch..

    3-6 months has been about the average between trips for the past 6 years.... I need my Vegas fix no less than 2-3x per year. Usually when I get back I have the "post Vegas mild depression" for a day or so, then I make sure I have a rough idea when the next trip is, after that I'm about a 3 on the "Vegas Excitement Scale" up until about 2 months before the trip, then the scale progresses until it reaches a 10 about 2 weeks before the trip... at 15 days to go I'm getting close!
