I'm moving to LAS VEGAS, what do you think?
I think its pretty cool. I've visited about 4 times in the last 3 years, everything is pretty new, clean, tons to do, lots of jobs, and the houses are about 1/2 of the cost that they are in CT. And the people for the most part are alot more friendly than back east. Hope to be able to meet some local subaru enthusiasts.

LV on the otherhand is about 8 hours south of Here, and its in the desert. Ive visited 3 times, my grandmother lives there. I also enjoy gambling, and where else better to go than Vegas!

1) There are bad things anywhere you live.
2) I didn't ask anyone what it was like or how bad is it, I'm just trying to get a feel for who's close by, not what everyone thinks (thought I made that clear in my second post)
3) There are plenty of jobs in new construction, which is the field I am in.
4) Nice to know that some of you guys have a lousy attitude when your opinion was not even asked for.
5) There must be a reason it is the fastest growing city in the country.
6) Obviously I know its hot, I realize it is the desert. When you've grown up and lived in an area like CT and can't stand the cold winters, the heat sounds pretty good.
7) I have family that has already lived out there for 5 years and have not heard of the "sandblasting" effect. That is why everyone builds a huge house with a garage.
Thanks to those of you who have nice things to say and have some input to the topic of "Trying to find out how many board members are close to that area".

I can atest to the sandblashed front paint. I had a 64 Old Cutlass 2dr HT that I took down there from Washington, within 6 months of being there almost all of the paint was sandblasted off the front edge of the hood.
By the way, there are some great sand dunes north of Vegas on the road to Moab, not far past the Air Force base, on the right side of the road heading north. I used to take my dirt bike up there.

There should be plenty of high tech jobs out in Vegas. I'm not sure what you mean exactly by tech jobs, but I'm an electronics Technician and my company has sent me out there on field service before. There is a ton of high tech stuff going on in each and every casino. Just look at the water show in front of the Belagio, as can be witnessed in the new Ocean's Eleven movie. These Casinos have so much money to throw around that they put together some of the most technologically advanced shows around. For me I know I can find a job, in fact I was offered two while I was there. One with the MGM Grand Tech department and one with an outside company that works with touchscreens. As long as you don't have a gambling problem it can be a great place to live.
When I come out there later this year I'll look you up! A friend and I are going to go out sometime, probably for the SEMA show.

I didn't mean to say I didn't appreciate the advice, I just didn't appreciate all the negativity. If a friend of mine was moving somewhere I didn't like, I probably wouldn't say something like "Why would you want to live there??" I do appreciate you're previous response, though.

Chris, I knew you didn't mean that you did appreciate our comments, that was why my comment was followed by .

In case your are wondering, I'm practicing my 'Don't come to Washington' technique. We natives love it just the way it was, there are too many people here now, so I need to practice up on telling them about all the rain, so they will stay away.

I too would make sure my friend knew everything bout the place, before he moved... but since you have friends and relatives there... you probably already know.
I'll plan a trip down there next winter, we'll have to get together and do some gambling.

Just kiddin,you SOB's take care of my buddy!!!!
Looks like the northeast is crumbling.Lots of casualties lately.
Chris,better not bring your winter coats....hey,what size are you? LOL!!!
Better bring a few air conditioners with you.Carry tweezers incase of mishap with cactus.Don't bet,I hear lots of people lose.Wear white and dress with mirrored sequens and you'll be ushered into limos constantly.Elvis lives.Sandals,not Sorels.Long underwear to Goodwill.You don't like fresh seafood anyways.Send rustfree parts!Italians rule Vegas Get a dirt bike or ATV.Carry Q-tips for your eyes,ears,and any exposed crevices that'll be sand-encrusted.Wear stuff across your face like some Arabian sword swinger.Get dashmats for your vehicles.I know some people who know some people......Those show girls are just that.Number 7 is not always lucky.Snake eyes under your bed,not good.Wash behind your ears and don't take any wooden debit cards!!!!!
I damn well'd better be able to knock a few back with you before you split.

There is great wheelin not far from Vegas. I'll be down there this weekend. There's wheeling & Rock Crawling in St. George Ut. 2 hrs east.
I think you'll like Vegas. It's a big city and growing fast. I understand they publish a new phone book every 6 months!
82 Hatch, well it used to be.....
01 Forester, bent but not broken!

Corky's right, there's lots to see and do. Many times while I'm there visiting neighbors or on business, I skip the casino and take advantage of the great prices on food and hotel rooms. Try PT's Pub on Spring Mountain..ham and eggs breakfast for 1.99!
Walking away occaisionally with a few thousand bucks is kinda nice too.
Just be careful when 4wheelin' in the desert.. you might discover the remains of someone who was "whacked" about 40 years ago.
