    Leaving Las Vegas

    I very happy to say the my wife, my son, and myself are leaving Las Vegas and moving back home to Arkansas! I couldn't be more happy! We have been out here for about 4 years but I have grown tired of the scum, the heat, and the tourist. All in all we have enjoyed Vegas and made alot of great friends but it's just not home. I can't wait to work on my own car with out worrying about the HOA, or stopping at a red light and not being hassled by the pan handlers.

    It's been real, and it's been fun, but it ain't been real fun. Now this country boy is headed home!

    Panhandling is really annoying. Good luck with the move!

    Thanks guys, we have a 10 week old baby boy and Vegas is no place to raise a child. Don't get me wrong, it's a great place to visit, or a great place to be from.

    I wouldn't even want to visit again. I can't stand it. Every couple of years I have to go there for conferences. I dread those trips.

    Glad to see you getting out. Stay safe and best of luck to you and yours.

    Have a safe trip, and best of luck. I love Vegas, but I wouldn't mind going somewhere else. I'm getting tired of thinking that 110 degrees is cooling down.

    Tell me about it, I was so thrilled to see 109 on the news this week!

    I have to say that Vegas wasn't a bad place for us. I have made a good living, made some really good friends, and had more fun than we should have. It's just not home. I miss the trees and swimming in the creek on my families property.

    Hehe.

    Congrats on leaving Las Vegas! Like you said it's a nice place to visit, but it would drive me nuts living there. Don't forget to wave if you drive through Kansas!
