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 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 ) I'm heading out to Vegas again next week and I'm thinking I might try my very first trip report!
