I’m actually considering going out to Las Vegas next month. There’s an unofficial gathering out there from the 12th to the 16th. (For those few readers of this blog, if you’re signed up with the site, there’s a post in the forums.) I’ve been to The City of Lost Wages twice in my life. Both times, I was under 21. That meant no gambling. Now, many years later, I’m well of the legal age to enter a casino.

I’ve been looking at the travel sites. For just the hotel and flight, I’m looking at upwards of $400 if I want to stay on the strip. That’s assuming that I arrive on the 11th and leave on the 17th and doesn’t include a rental car or food. Depending on what the plans are, I may just go for a few days. It also depends on how scheduling works out and if I can get the time off. Days off can be a bit tricky where I work considering that I’m the only full-time employee other than the manager.

If I can’t get those days off or if the gathering falls through, I may just go anyway. I’ve never done a major trip like that by myself. I would prefer to have other people to do things with. I’ve heard of people going to Vegas solo and going with friends. Which is preferable often depends on what kind of person you are. I could see doing either.
