How long does it take to get from Vegas to Tijuana? Why go for some debauchery when you can go for a lot of debauchery?

I don't have a mrs. these days, and my dating prospects are slim at best, can I bring something inflatable?

I will totally be on very good behavoir if it the only way I can assure DK can bring his wife without fear of harm/injury. :)

Bring any eligle bachelors you know also.

There's no way I could make it in January because I'm going to be traveling out of the country for a couple of weeks. October would be the best for me because I'll be using most of my vacation time for said trip in January/February. It could be a birthday trip.

Oh, and DK my misses would definitely be making the trip because she would react the same way you said yours would if you said you were going alone.

Classic JR gesture. Thanks old friend.

Krak, There may be eligible bachelors within.

Dex, you have no idea. My wife's can be scary sometimes.

I'm going on vacation in March, later might be better for me too. I'd be flying solo unless I miraculously find a girl that will give me the time of day. More debauchery for me then.

It's considered a carry on. It isn't so big yet to the point where I have to check it in.

I'm picturing the stewardess repeatedly trying to slam shut the overhead door to get everything to fit.

Me, myself and my tank.

Don't those have to be registered with the ATF?

I would definitely be interested in a Colorado carpool. Vegas is not that far away. Plus a bunch of engineers in a car?! We'll need to get a party bus for all the calculators :)

That January date conflicts with TRB, iirc.

So far no complaints for the Oct date? Not too hot, not too chilly. Homeostasis.

~12 hours. If I'm driving, I could probably knock it down to 10...

12 hours assuming traffic and weather are decent through the mountains? I'd rather fly personally. I think Southwest generally has decent rates DEN - LAS.

Vail Pass is tough, but unless you're stopped in traffic than it goes by quick even in January. I can make it to Vegas in 10 hours from Summit County.

The October date is kinda close to hunting season.
