Default Living in Las Vegas

OK, guys. Looks like the job opportunity in Havasu was a wash. Far more negatives than positives about living there full-time.

Looking into a new opportunity in Las Vegas. This is a clinical/teaching job with UNLV Medical Center Department of Emergency Medicine. Former next door neighbor from Toledo is a professor in Engineering @ UNLV and loves it.

Looking for input on cost of living, local boating, social life (outside the strip), boat/RV storage, housing/apartment costs, etc.

Any input both positive and negative appreciated.

Lucky Dog! Good luck with your search Chris. Make sure you make accommodations for extra boat trailer parking.

well I know ems works therre butts off in vegas..so Im assuming the ERs are pretty busy..the cost of living wasnt bad a couple years ago, but it was starting to rise..with the building boom. a nice boat and a good buggy, the opurtunity for play is endless. the heat during the summer is intense and will take some getting used too and it is not 80 degrees and sunny all winter either.

Living there for a year was tough. Of course, since I don't drink, smoke or do drugs, that left gambling and hookers....

It's a great place. I don't regret a second. And I will visit often. Get used to going to Hoover Dam, because everyone that visits will make you take them there....

Housing prices are dropping it's a buyers market right now. Great place to live if you don't have a Gambling problem. Lake Mead 20 minutes away for some Great Boating. Been here 10 years and Love it.

Thanks, Kevin. Want to find someplace where extra trailer parking is a given, and I will expect visitis from my mid-west friends if this happens.

Looks very interesting so far. Department Chairman is med director @ Las Vegas motor speedway and LVPD Swat Team so we should have a lot in common.

phragle,

Not afraid of hard work. Just want to be respected and fairly compensated for it. CEO shouldn't be making $10 mil/year if they can't afford to pay my overtime.

Preliminary developments going on right now, but I will definately contact you about this if things begin to get serious. Earliest this would happen would be end of 2007.

Greg,

Don't smoke, do drugs, or gamble. Guess that leaves just ...

I will expect visits from my Southeast/Florida friends, too!
