    So I'm not new to the board, but I have been a lurker for long enough!
    I'm from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada where I teach Kindergarten. I started going to Las Vegas with my mom, about 10 years ago now I think. What started out as once a year has increased, with help from comp offers and apps like MyVegas, Binions, etc. Now I try to go during any school break (Christmas, March Break, Summer), as long as airfare from Canada agrees with me.
    Used to travel to Vegas for my moms birthday, when I was supply teaching and able to take time off whenever I wanted. Once the school year became the deciding factor in scheduling, we switched to my birthday in July. Now my mom doesn't travel (she'd love to, but isn't able to currently), I travel solo, and I've learned that I love it :cool:
    I normally split time between Fremont and the Strip, as I love them both too much to choose just one.
    Over the past couple trips I've been lucky enough to meet up with @notfromconcentrate and @Royal Flusher (even got myself a coveted Royal Flusher card :love:)
    I'm heading out to Vegas again next week and I'm thinking I might try my very first trip report!

    Hey @neveret
    Welcome to the board. I used to live in Ottawa (lived there up until 5 years ago)... It's always good to meet people from our city. How is the teacher's strike going? I hope it resolves agreeably.
    @Beavertail Hey there! Always good to meet fellow Ottawans!!!

    Looks like I'll just miss you by a week or so. Looks like you're going around March Break, and I'm going March 28th to April 3rd! Have fun bud!

    You should do a trip report! I've done two, and I think in the first one I mentioned the layovers, lol. Something you'll probably know all too well!
