So I attempted a live trip report in November, and realized how much effort goes into that, that I've decided to do semi-live for this trip. I'll start with this.... TSA agents get really excited/angry when you slow down the process because you accidentally leave a loaded pistol magazine in your carry-on. Let me back up a few weeks to a the time I drove to a conference in a less than desirable city and I felt it was better to be safe than sorry. Being that 9 rounds wasn't enough (according to my husband), I took a spare magazine (loaded, of course). Just to be safe, right? I had packed it in my small bag that I always fly with and simply missed it when unpacking from the trip. Fast forward to today, and I was all packed and ready to get my Vegas on, and never even thought about the magazine still being in my carry-on. Well, TSA thought about it being in my bag. I got a talking to while the least happy agent in the airport searched my bag. Overall, they were nice about it and allowed me to take it back to the car - then, go through the checkpoint again. As I was escorted out of the security area by a very friendly agent, he told me I was the 3rd in 40 minutes! We boarded our flight without further incident and were lucky enough to snag the 2 seater exit row. Leg room is the same as standard rows on Southwest flights, but I don't have to share an armrest with a stranger. In-flight WiFi was on the Fritz for the first hour of the flight, but our pilot - who as a really thick accents and is impossible to understand - was nice enough to call whoever he's required to call for approval to reboot & got it fixed rather quickly. Oh, on a side note, ReCON 2016 is this week and every realtor from the state of Alabama is going - and they're all on this flight. Apparently it's the biggest real estate conference in the nation. They take up a solid 75% of the seats, with 20% being geeks headed out for Citrix Synergy, also in Vegas this week. The remaining 5% (including me) are stuck listening to real estate business and computer speak. Overall, despite my snafu, the trip has started off great. I'm just ready to set foot in the desert!
