We immediately start planning our next trip !

Constantly looking at photos and watching videos of your last trip donesn't work, it makes you even more depressed, just knowing what you are missing !

You CAN'T go again or you have no plans to? If it's just that you don't THINK you can, then you will find a way. That depression will hit you, and you'll find a way. I have to agree, the only way I get over it is to plan again. Other than that, it's an unfortunate thing in life we have to deal with.... the being away from Vegas blues. (tee hee). Shouldn't someone make a song to make us feel better?

Start planning your next trip. Read up on everything Las Vegas (like this board) to keep up with things. In my case, since I live about 2.5 hours from Atlantic City, I go there about once a month to fill in between Las Vegas trips. Atlantic City is no Las Vegas, but at least it reduces the pain a bit. Thankfully, I can go about every 6 months to Las Vegas. Still, once I get back, it seems like the next trip will take forever to get here. Nevertheless, it will be here before you know it. Hang in there.

I am 1hour 45 mins from Atlantic City. It is not even close to Vegas. I go to AC all the time, but still want Vegas!

JacqtheCoug,

Here's the song you asked for -

Just got back from Vegas City...ka twang, ka twang

Her shows and lights are all so pretty...ka twang, ka twang

She gets right in there under my skin...ka twang, ka twang

This loud and boisterous city of sin...ka twang, ka twang

She won’t let loose her hold on me...ka twang, ka twang

I want to go back immediately...ka twang, ka twang

Please someone tell me what to do...ka twang, ka twang

So I no longer feel so blue...ka twang, ka twang

To cure these Vegas City blues...ka twang, ka twang

I think I’ll pack my comfy shoes...ka twang, ka twang

I’ll book a flight and make some plans...ka twang, ka twang

This situation’s out my hands...ka twang, ka twang

When that city of lights calls me...ka twang, ka twang

I have to answer, don’t you see...ka twang, ka twang

There are no options from which to choose...ka twang, ka twang

When I get those Las Vegas Blues...ka twang, ka twang

Go have an alpo steak at hEllis Island. I think that subpar horse meat has effected your brain.

Good one LVescape! I put the words to a sort of modified version of the tune from "The Beveryly Hillbillys" and it fit perfect.

04-04-06 I agree with pretty much everyone else. You just have to start dreaming and planning that next trip.
