This is my 43rd trip to Vegas and 2nd solo one. The first solo trip was several years ago and I did have some friends in town so it wasn't completely solo. This one could be unless my friend Ted arrives on Wednesday. His wife teaches school in Vegas but he has been back home farming. I said I would never fly Allegiant Air again but I ended up booking this trip out of Cedar Rapids IA because the price was right and the flight times allow me to drive to and from the airport in the daylight. And then with a Winter Weather Advisory issued for Sunday, I ended up heading to my local Isle of Capri in Waterloo IA on Saturday night. That led to a very, very early arrival for my Sunday afternoon flight. Hotel will be the Flamingo comped for four nights. The host I have worked with at South Point said offers were unavailable during the Rodeo so I passed on casino rate plus resort fee. My online reservation said I would be paying a $18.00 resort fee at Flamingo but it was not mentioned at check in and has not appeared on my bill so far. Despite a few inches of snow, Allegiant came through with on time arrival for the incoming flight. If not for de-icing, we would also have left on time. Flight was uneventful and we arrived almost an hour late at 5:30 pm.
