I wanted to spin this off from another thread about first time in Vegas. I saw this post from Billy and thought it merited discussion:

Quote: billryan

and decided I would move here. Fifteen years, and countless detours and derailments later, I did.



Now, I LOVE Vegas. I only get to come once a year and would come more if I could. That said, I dont think I would want to live there. However, for those of you who were raised elsewhere and choose to move to Vegas. What was it specifically that lead you to move there, and are you still glad with your choice?
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

Vegas is in a state of decline. Too many system players cleaning out casinos

What specifically made you think you would like it? Job market, community, ect?

If I didnít have such deep roots on the east coast, Iím pretty sure Iíd move to Vegas and AP full time. Itís too difficult to do full time nearly anywhere else.

At least thatís my plan once I self destruct my life here

According to the conventional wisdom, Aping has been an illusion for quite some time and is now a delusion shared by old has beens who assemble arsenals since VP offers zilch, BJ offers zilch but a view of the back room and comps for suspected APs have evaporated.

Now I guess retirees with nothing much else to do with their pension checks can sit there and do coin-in for ten hours a day and eke out a "living" of comped puddings in air conditioned comfort but people with mortgage payments, car payments, kids in school, air conditioning bills and bills from women who are not from an agency are too hard pressed even if playing Pai Gow Tiles wherein one pushes a third of the time anyway.

IMHO your second sentence is false. I moved away from Vegas after I started APíing full time, for business reasons. I move an average of over once a year though so thereís that. FWIW if I had your educational background/skills I think I would part time. And then want to quit and go full time...Grass is always greener or whatever.

I'm reminded of Rick's response as to why he came to Casablanca: he said it was for the waters. The perplexed interrogator who pointed out that Casablanca is in the middle of a desert received the simple response: "I was misinformed".

Las Vegas ain't no oasis, its just Los Angeles street gangs ... with casinos.

Yes, but the gang members and the residents don't have face tattoos.
