    My Trip Report

    Waiting at sfo in the virgin terminal wondering if this will be the time I actually get my live tr off the ground. Still recovering from a cold I got last week but I'm at about 90% with some decongestants, mixed with red bull and drinks off course, to make sure I'm keeping it 100.

    Last time I tried to do a live tr it fell apart the minute I landed in Vegas and that was last year in September. Staying at aria for two nights with friend A both nights, meeting at las in 4 hours, and friend J is coming in for just tonight leaving tomorrow. Let's see how it goes

    Mood lighting. Got a seat with extra leg room near the front somehow. Full flight for an hour isn't too bad, but this is the first time in about 8 years I haven't had a direct flight, it did save me about $300 of my gambling budget which is about $150 an hour of my time. Definitely worth it

    Spirit Air out of Oakland is as low as $120-130 RT plus $60 baggage fee RT
    Virgin America out of SFO is as low $145 RT (non-refundable) as plus $50 baggage fee RT
    Southwest out of SMF is as low as 210 RT without baggage fees

    Allegiant is the cheapest but I've read plenty of reviews about delayed or cancelled flights out of SCK

    I have a companion pass with southwest and have used points the past 2 or 3 years. This was last minute I bought a week in advanced and cost me $240, only 2 days so no checked bags. American airlines

    Can I get a live trip report? The answer is no. Phone died early, didn't charge it and drank and gambled while blacked out most of the night. Went to marquee for a few hours. Lost quite a bit of money for me.

    Since I can't do a live trip report, here is a pic of the construction /demolition out of our window. [​IMG]

    I'll try to do better today, but likely it will be a snoozer since I'm taking it easy.
