Now that I live closer then I'd definitely prefer twice a year for 4 days, but when I lived in the UK once a year for 8 days would have been better to give me longer to adjust to the time difference and make the most of it.

Given the choice- I'd likely do every other year- one way then the other.

Portland to Vegas isnt far- the airfare isnt the main factor, it's purely an overall $$ factor.

I like my method better...Vegas every 4 months for 5 days, 6 nights each time...

Definitely twice

I think 8 days would be too much at one time

twice for 4 days... gives me something to look forward to and keep me going two times instead of just once

I'm totally hoping that my hubs will have good enough time that we can make another small trip once a year or so. That is all contingent on nothing over the top crazy happens on our first trip out this summer. He likes to drive but if he does have a really good time I could talk him into flying for a quick trip later I think .
