called the last trip report from may the best trip ever, really. even though it was also for a set of trade shows, we did get some more time to play, and hitting those royals was something that just did not happen this time. still, we did get to do a few fun things, and have a few setbacks to make you aware of, so here goes. flights on delta, and their shuttle partners. out of great falls on time, told that our connecting flight in salt lake was running late, when we got to salt lake it had been cancelled, so they got us on the next flight two and a half hours later. gave us 7 dollars each for breakfast, that and another 7 covered the breakfast for two and the tip! losing that time cost us our attendance at one of the three trade shows we were going down for, it was the last day, and really takes two DAYS to do right, the 5 hours we had got whittled down to less than 3, just not enough can get done then, so changed plans and got a little more time at the one we most unfamiliar with. flight home was on time, though when we hit salt lake, had to circle for 20 minutes, to allow for an emergency landing, of a plane bound for las vegas that had to turn back with a pressure problem. have not heard any bad news, so assume everything turned out ok, heard no buzz in the airport that night. everybody running to catch connectors, all of them were running late anyway, we thought we had 20 minutes, turned out to have 70, then loaded and sat for 45 more on the plane before take off. landed one hour and 50 minutes after schedule. no more bitching about travel! cabs were all good this trip, and it seems like there was either less construction, or the cabbies had all found good alternative routes, because we made good time all 6 times we took cabs, downtown to convention center, strip to downtown, usually very busy routes, and at times that would be peak, i think.
