    Hi all,

    REALLY long time lurker here. The post really is to thank @Sonya for her COVID updates every day, one of the best sources one can get. Thank you for your work, I check it every morning.

    In other news, keep save my American friends, we are eager to vistit you and get visits from you the other way around.

    Context: 1-4 times a year in Vegas since 10+ years (yes, yes, degenerate, it's like 6000 miles), love Vegas, love Americans (the people...), can't wait to get back and maybe even meet some of you guys.

    Stay healthy and happy!
    Michael

    Welcome to the forum. I would imagine you know some of us already by our posts. Mind telling us what part of that lovely nation you live in?

    I noticed your join date of 2007 so you definitely qualify as a longtime lurker. :cool:

    Welcome aboard and thank you for the kind words about Americans - the feeling is mutual toward our Swiss friends and all our international friends. VMB is the best because of the dedication of @Sonya and our awesome Mods. Vegas is a great place; best wishes from another Vegas degen of 20 years :whistle:

    Sorry, still figuring out the multi-quote thing.

    During summer months (April to October) there are direct flights ZRH - LAS operated by Edelweiss (pretty good Swiss subsidy). Otherwise it is usually either via LHR/LGW on BA or ATL on Delta. The direct flight is already long enough (11h) but having an overlay pushes it to the 18h mark, so....direct is definitely preferred.

    Right back at you....one of many fun aspects of Vegas is meeting people from many places near and far. That is one of the things I will miss on this next trip.
     
    Hope they don't check for gambling fever....I'll be off the charts!

    Zurich, so the financial hub. Nice area.
