    Thanks for the well wishes for those of us with an August countdown. This will be my first nine day trip and it can't come soon enough (death of BIL, inheriting his home, estate sale, moving my daughter/granddaughter from out of state back home to his house, etc.) This will be the first time flying out of Minneapolis (Allegiant pulled out of Duluth). My sister and I have an early am flight so will be going to the cities the day before and spending the night at a park and fly hotel. The hotel also includes shuttle service to the Mall of America so we plan on getting some mega shopping in before Vegas. Of course, my Houston son will meet us, along with eight or so other relatives/friends for most of the trip. Looking forward to the "dry heat"!

    Just a few days for us. A little different this trip as we have a 2 day pre cruise stop and 2 day post cruise stop. Having to do a bit more planning this time. Won't be long now.

    Thanks Hockeymom!! 3 weeks from tomorrow and it can't come soon enough. Looks like a couple other people in this thread will be arriving the same day as us!

    I know September seems far away but look on the bright side, you will still have something to look forward to when most of us are home and sad that it's over!!

    Hope you have a wonderful trip!!

    ...haven't been to LV since November and after 4 visits in 12 months the break was "good"....didn't cruise VMB very much, didn't work very hard to plan my next visit....but when the opportunity presented itself to go with a good friend who has been to LV a few times but NEVER to DT...it didn't take long to think, plan, browse, etc. Vegas non-stop for the past month...and the next 3 weeks! Can't wait for another fun trip! Hope everyone, August visitors and beyond, have a great time and make some memories to share with us on VMB...
