Leaving Sunday! (A Pre-Trip Report)

So, what we have here is 2 girls obsessed. My friend, KJ, and I are leaving Sunday for 5 days in Fabulous Las Vegas. Our last trip together was Aug 2007. We've chatted about Vegas quite frequently over the last 2 years, but, in the last 2 months we've gone completely out of control. We've watched every movie that has even a GLIMPSE of sin city in it, we've read books, hundreds of TR's, and are even addicted to freeslots.com. (Oh, excuse me, KJ says she is NOT addicted, she simply uses the site as a "learnng tool"...whatever)

There will likely be quite a few repeats from our last trip, but, there will be new things too. We've made reservations to take the Boneyard tour, we're going to try and make use of the free Mac King tickets this time, we'll be visiting some of the casinos we didn't make it to last time, and....we've set our cheesy Vegas goals....KJ's is to collect as many poker chips as possible, mine is to have my photo taken with as many Elvis' as possible.

For anyone in the mood, you can re-visit our last adventure at,

"See ya" when we get back!

Bet you can't wait! I too last was in Vegas in 2007 (Oct) and return this Nov. Sooooooo excited I keep reading and reading I can't imagine how excited I'd be when it's only 3 days to go! I'll probably burst!

Look forward to your trip report, tell me where the best elvis' are and I'll try and catch a few too!

Enjoy!

Reminds me of our forthcoming trip, me my little sis and friend were all last there together in August 07 also! We have been planning this for so long, and watched loads of films that feature vegas in it,and istened to cheesy vegas style music! Our goals are to party hard, shop til we drop, and get back home in one piece!! Hope you all have a blast..

I like the way you think Tropigirl. Once I book a vacation, I start researching my next vacation, which means I am generally surfing TA for 2 locations. It's quite addictive.

We've also been to Vegas a few times, so try to fit in something different each time. We finally made it to see Big Elvis a couple of years ago (when he was still big), we splurged on a helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon last year, and we finally made it offstrip to the Voodoo Lounge.

We're going again in October and I'm looking for ideas for new things to do. I would love to hear other ideas...what to do when you've done all the "regular" Vegas stuff???

Addict has such negative connotations. I prefer to think of it as efficient planning.

We leave in 30 days (girls trip for two friends here too) and just had a meeting to discuss it today at lunch. Apparently the bound book with tabs and colour coded maps was more than my travel companion was expecting *g* She'll thank me later.

Have a great trip!!!
