    Default Turning 40!?

    Well kids, the big 4-0 arrives this year. Not dreading it at all. Life is great. I decided I wanted to do something fun to celebrate though. Thinking of heading down to Vegas, rent a fun car, drive a Lamborghini at the track and shoot some crazy guns. What did you old farts do for your 40th?

    Your plan was exactly my plan, but with strippers in the mix as well. Except I ended up getting a blown eardrum two weeks before the trip. I could have still gone, but at risk of busting it again while it was healing.

    Ended up staying a weekend at Storm Mountain Cabins instead. Was still fun, would do again.

    Sounds like a great day to schedule a colonoscopy due to the increased chance of prostate cancer.

    Maybe it's just me, but if you are going to Vegas to do fun stuff, act like a kid again and indulge your love to heavy equipment. Rent a big digger! https://digthisvegas.com/

    I would save your money and drive the lower demand cars at LV Exotics. They're so much cheaper and still incredible. Do more laps in a V10 R8, AMG GT-S, or the GTR.

    LV Exotics looks to be a rental company. Do they offer a venue where you can do laps?

    That's awesome. In the words of Gary V, young as fk lol or as per rage2, go bang an 18 year old lol

    Whatever you decide on, have a great fkn time. 2 more years to go for me before 40. When I was younger I dreaded it but now I am loving life.

    It’s Vegas. I’m sure you can schedule both together.

    Perhaps I got the name wrong and if I google it, its ads will appear for the next 18 months in everything.
    It's a company that lets you on the track with real supercars. I've done it and it's really awesome.

    Looking more in to the track rental, I'm actually leaning towards just renting a Lambo for a full 24hrs and doing a road trip around NV/AZ. I won't get the track experience, but for the same price I can have it for a full day and see some epic scenery (i.e. Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Page, etc) and still have a chance to open it up a little here and there (responsibly).

    Yeah it's definitely a trade-off. 30 minutes of adrenaline or a day of chill crusin' haha.

    My 40th bday we just had a big bbq and ate good food and got drunk with a ton of friends. Slept in my own bed when the night was over. Couldn’t have enjoyed myself more.

    Me and my wife are both turning 40 too.

    Haven't thought much about it yet due to financial constraints.

    For me personally, I'm thinking it's time to give up my 370Z and buy something more "mature".

    Another 370Z "is this a good car to buy" thread incoming...something that can tow a small camper

    Curious why Vegas of all things? Most people would enjoy driving the fancy cars and shooting all sorts of crazy guns but Vegas can be done at anytime. If you catch the right sale/time you can get away for a weekend for dirt cheap.

    Most people have already gone to vegas and shot guns, gambled or drove the cars well before their 40th.

    For me id look into doing a fly in fishing/hunting camp. Maybe a remote out of country hunt. Heck a tropical island that I've never been to before would be great.

    Fair question. We've only been to Vegas as poor university students, so we did not do the fancy cars and fun guns, etc. I have a vacation package from Hilton that I need to use, and Vegas is one of the resorts we can go to. Sit through a 2 hour time share thing, and we get 3 nights and 4 days at no cost, plus some spending cash (I'm older now and make OK money...but I'm not above getting a deal). I really want to road trip a super car, especially a Lambo. We do annual vacations and have made it to many places (tropical, destination, etc...and I've lived in the tropics for a couple years) but haven't been to Vegas in many years. Then there's all the other stuff we can do too. I also have a cousin down there, so we can meet up with them and stay for free for a couple more days. My wife is coming (we like to hang out together...crazy huh?) and she wants to go to a show or two. And, there's usually some cheap airfare deals that come along for Vegas...so there were a bunch of reasons that came together that ended up making Vegas make sense.

    I love the hunting/fishing/camping idea...but I get out and do that throughout the summer and hunting seasons already (bagged a 6x4 Mule Deer buck this fall!).
