Hey chief you seem to have left out an important update. No rush, just want to make sure you didn’t forget. Take your time, write out all the details for us. Lots of married dudes here whose lives are essentially over would appreciate the vicarious distraction. Thanks buddy. Congrats on finding the new hunting grounds.

:lmao: Flight Attendant was a fun time. A couple of drinks at TBones in the Red Rock Casino, Dinner at Harlo was great, back to the Red Rock Casino for more drinks and an hour of Blackjack, then to the room for shenanigans. Then she woke me up at 5am for more shenanigans (thanks Testosterone replacement therapy!). She showered quick at 7am and left for her 10am flight home. First dates these days, amiright?!

3 nights and 2 different brunettes. VEGAS! VASECTOMIES!

Been wanting to check out Harlo. Let me know what you think.

It was amazing! Definitely go soon. Great starter bread, thinly shaved yellowtail with a balsamic glaze and pink peppercorns for the app. Then we shared an 8oz filet mignon (perfectly med rare) and scallops. All delicious.

At this time better to rent than to buy a home in a desert community. The availability of water appears to be an issue that will influence the shaping of communities and where people live very much in the future.

Millions of people are not meant to live in arid desert conditions.

More importantly, what were you wearing?

While you're back in Wisconsin battling the nerves of such a big move, refer to this article to remind you of the choice you made...


It just popped up in my feed and thought it did a great job capturing how unlikely a place Summerlin is on the outskirts of Sin City

Vegas is definitely more than just casinos/gambling. Aside from all the awesome entertainment options along with the great variety of restaurants, the outdoor attractions/parks/hikes/etc are amazing. I always laugh when I hear people say 2 or 3 days is the max time you want to spend in Vegas. Sure, maybe if you’re solely drinking and gambling your money away.

I'm sure that's all true but as a tourist, I'm not flying into Vegas for hikes and outdoor activities especially in that desert heat. Can think of hundreds of other more desirable locations for that type of thing.
It’s not the OP’s niche, but Vegas arguably offers the greatest variety of world class climbing close to a city in the US. People hike and cycle there, too, though I agree there are better places for those activities.

I don’t gamble or enjoy rubbing elbows with drunken tourists, but would consider moving to Summerlin for the outdoor recreation + dining and easy airport access.
The nice thing about Summerlin is they don’t get the drunken tourists like Vegas.
Yeah, I‘ve stayed there multiple times, and almost bought a home there a decade ago, when prices were low. Kinda bummed it’s becoming a hotspot for anyone other than climbers.

I wouldn’t write off that place near the BW3 & Target. Chicks love Target. You walk in there wearing Jordans and a $10,000 watch, you’ll be fighting them off. Pick one, take her to BW3 for some wings and a frosty Miller Lite, then back to the crib. Boom, intercourse. :hifive:
Its true.........We dont take lunch time strolls through target to actually shop...

Anybody have any advice on the best/most cost effective way to move all my stuff from Milwaukee to Vegas?

Along with all my stuff will also need to get my car there.

Is the best way for me to rent a UHaul and hire guys in Milwaukee to pack up my stuff and load it into truck. Then I drive the UHaul. Then when arrive in Vegas hire similar guys there to unload truck and up to my apartment.

But then how do I get my car over there? Have a buddy drive it and pay for his flight home? Kind of a pain.

I'll look into it but I imagine me driving my car and dog and a moving company driving a truck would be pretty damn expensive. But maybe that's just the best route?

You can attach the car to the back of the uhaul. 50/50 chance it gets to your destination in one piece but I think if you video the whole thing and things go sideways, you'll more than make up for it in youtube subscribers.

Use one of those PODS. Pack it up it Milwaukee and have them drop it off in Summerlin. Drive your own car.

Buddy in Summerlin helps you unload. Wala!

This is what my SiL did and she is awful at planning so then ended up not getting done in time had plenty of room in the pods, but they got picked up so we had to ship her boxes at the cost of $400 :lmao:

Eta: you can hire movers to load the pods also. My dad still uses the movers to come to the house and move **** for an hour when he was cleaning his garage

How does moving with one of those pods work if you're moving into an apartment in an urban area with just street parking or a parking garage with limited clearance? "We dropped your pod off 12 blocks away. Good luck."

Or buy a bunch of parachutes, load your car and all your boxes of things onto a plane with parachutes attached to everything, and push everything out the back of the plane. Just gotta hope the parachutes deploy. Easy.

My advice is get rid of as much **** as you can. See what you have left and determine whether it’s worth it to container ship it or not. Moving is expensive no matter what so ultimately it depends on how much you want to do versus how much you’d rather pay someone else to do. Fwiw, I’ve moved myself from Milwaukee to Laramie, WY with a car in tow with zero issues. I packed the truck myself and was happy that nobody else broke my stuff and it arrived when I wanted it to (my time).

Forget the towing the car aspect, I don't even see him driving a uhaul. That doesn't mean we can't push him in that direction though for the potential comedic value. We can certainly count on him for providing a thorough update.

I’d have to use a moving company for the amount of crap we’ve accumulated. For an apartment move, I’d sell most/all of my furniture and rent a van for the rest.

If you absolutely need to move a lot of furniture, big TVs etc., I can’t recommend Atlas enough. They’ll take care of it all. Expensive but very much worth it imo.

Nah, I have lots of nice stuff. And I live pretty tightly organized without a lot of fluff. So I don't have a ton of nonsense but everything I do have is high quality and will want to keep it. I will likely need to get a new couch though as mine is probably too big for the new living rooms to also be able to include my Eames Lounge chair & ottoman in the space (a necessity). And the 85" Sony, stereo and surround sound speakers, bedroom set and lots of art are stayin' with me.

Believe it or not, I'm a very handy guy and not afraid to take stuff on and get dirty. When I was in the suburb house I renovated 70% of the 3K sq. ft house by myself including lots of landscaping work.

I could do the car tow thing I'm sure, just would need a little practice backing that thang up.

I ran the numbers for the apartment in Tivoli (8 mins from Dtown Summerlin) and Tanager (in the heart of Dtown Summerlin).

In a nutshell:
  • Tivoli apt full monthly expenses: $3,137
    • will give me more space....this is a 2BR / 2BA layout at 1,158 sq ft
    • will allow my home office in the smaller 2nd bedroom and have a window and view while I work
    • cooler building with better ammenities.
    • It's an 8 minute drive to Dtown Summerlin ($12 Uber ride each way)
    • Attraente floor plan:

  • Dtown Summerlin apt full monthly expenses: $2,734 (saves $403 per month)
    • less space...this is a 1BR + windowless Den / 1BA layout at 924 sq ft (234 less sq. footage)
      • The 2BR / 2BA layout here will likely be $300-$400 more than the Tivoli total above....just too expensive for an apt IMO.
    • The den space will be good for my home office but no window or view
    • building and ammenities are just meh. Still a brand new nice building, but the vibe just feels more boring and stale. Residents feel older. Have to walk across parking lots to get to the pool and gym.
    • location is ideal
    • A3 floor plan (note: "Dining" is where my office would be. "Relax" is an outdoor balcony...no idea why they label it like that):

@Mr Anonymous knowing right where the 2 locations are....what would you personally recommend? Anybody else's opinions I welcome as well.

3150 for an apartment????

I'm so out of touch....... does that include like everything?

For the Tivoli location, for example....

Rent: $2,728
Resort Fee: $50
Utilities: $120 (includes water, trash, sewer and gas)
Cable & Wifi: $105
Parking: $0 (outdoor, unassigned, covered carports)
Pet Fee: $0 (they told me to register him as an Emotional Support Animal for $40, and I get this $50 per month and $300+ other one time upfront pet fees waived)
Electric: $120 (guesstimate)
Rental Insurance: $14

Total: $3,137

ok so rent is 2700 - still crazy too me but i lived in the same house for 20 years so...... lol
Yep, not cheap in these nice cities. Austin would've been 850 sq. ft 1 BR/1BA (no den) for $2,654 rent only. A 2BR/2BA layout in Austin was $3,200 rent only.

Nope. There are only 2 luxury ones downtown Summerlin and the Tanager was the best. The other one was REALLY quiet and dead and actually more expensive...she said good majority of tenants are big work travelers so hardly ever even home. AND this building had no elevator. WTF? Pass.

Love the layout for tivoli. The decor throughout the whole facility though is just not my thing. It would be nice if you had a balcony facing the pool area. For the summerlin, is the den what they have labeled as "dining room"? What's this room labeled "relax". Love the pool and common area a lot more although the outside area looks a little more compact. To me, it has more of a nice resort feel. Love how the gym faces the pool. I can see how walking across the parking lot would be a negative.

I can see how walking across the parking lot would be a negative.

Tivoli:
- Decor is just more modern and the vibe is better....music playing always and more "buzz" when ouside of your apartment. Weekly gatherings where guys have poker night, watch games, etc.
- I'd actually prefer an outward facing view/balcony over the pool....some rooms you get red rock mountain views, some you get Tivoli Village views and some you get a glimpse of the strip over the top of green trees as the view. But there are also some views of parking lots and side of buildings too, so I know where on the sitemap I'd need a place to not have that.
- The gym in this place is sick with probably 20 ft ceilings and it does look right out into the pool area.
- The feel of this place is actually much more resort. Huge Pool, BBQ and lounging areas in the center and all the apartments circled around it. So, it's all connected.

Tanager Dtown Summerlin:
- the decor is more professional and the vibe is just "quiet" and a little lifeless.
- Yep, the dining room is where I'd put my office (no windows sucks though)
- "Relax" is the outdoor balcony. No idea why they label it like that. Dumb.
- Majority of views in this building are gonna be overlooking the parking lot at some level. The outside units towards the mountains and baseball stadium likely will never come available (and I'm not even sure my layout would be on that side...probably reserved for the 2 and 3 BR units)
- The online pictures of the pool and gym make it look a lot nicer than it really is. Very underwhelming in person and small. And yeah not having connected to any of the buildings and basically it's own separate building stinks.

I'd look into having your stuff shipped since you already have a car and can store some stuff in there. The Uhaul thing can be a pain traveling long distances and the mileage will add up. You also have to worry about your Uhaul getting robbed/stolen which has been a trend as of late. I don't have experience with the PODS but they sound like it a good option as well.

Good thoughts. I'd really rather not drive the Uhaul but if it saves me $5K-$10K I'd just do it.

The PODS idea sounds the best for me so far too. Just load up my car as packed as I can and everything else in the POD. Hire guys in Vegas to take it all into my apartment for me since won't really have anybody too accessible to help (and I'd just want it done quick)

I assume the PODS thing just gets loaded onto a Semi with others and driven to the final destination? Any guesses from somebody that has used PODS that my total cost would be? We talking $2K or $10K ? (From MKE to LAS and a 2BR 1,300 sq ft. apartment worth of stuff)

I just checked out the Plasma scene near Summerlin... there's 4 clinics all within 14 - 28 minutes away

- Tivoli: closest is 9.5 miles and 14 minutes away
- Tanager (dtown Summerlin): closest is 10 miles and 16 minutes away

I drive 12 minutes to my spot now so will be like home.

I think you can go to their website and get a pretty quick quote.

I think it would be like 3-4K for the POD. There are some alternatives that may be cheaper. We used a POD about 15 years ago on a move from east coast to twin cities. I think we paid like 2K, but as mentioned, that was a while ago.

Cool. I'll look into a quote tomorrow. If it can stay below $5K I'll be happy. In my mind all the income state tax I save yr 1 will just be going to my moving costs.
