Not quite 'live' as I'll try to summarise each day soon after/next day .... Left YVR this morning on WJ, arriving at Orleans about 2 pm after baggage wait, car rental wait, and traffic. Fairly smooth flight despite strong winds at LAS. Grabbed a Camry (called 'full size' ... werent' they 'compact' just a few years ago?) from Budget, using Air Miles and paying $56 in taxes. At least the golf travel bag fit in the trunk. As I posted elsewhere, an 8th or 9th floor room near the elevators (basically in the 30s to 50s) is by far the fastest way to/from the casino. First order of business was the ubiquitous hot dog and beer, along with some VP.
