    My Trip Report

    Flying Delta out of SJC early. Got to the airport at 6 AM, through check-in, through TSA, and in line at Starbucks by 615 AM (loved that). Longest and slowest line was Bucks with 5 people.

    The plan...
    - Staying at MSS for the first time.
    - SLS to see if they still have a loss rebate promo going that I heard about from LVA.
    - Atomic Testing Museum
    - Possibly Brilliant at Neon Museum
    - Lot's of VP, some slots, maybe some ACG & LVA match plays.
    - Visit Downtown Grand for the first time since my last Royal which was 1991ish.

    Disclaimer: This will be somewhat less entertaining then @tdhoier and @Gaggles TRs :)

    My lucky rock that wife bought me from a high end rock shop or found in a ditch somewhere, my ID bracelet and the playlist.

    Delta "having trouble ascertaining where our flight attendants are" sigh.

    I'm slightly less qualified and the FAA won't like it but I can wing it. I stayed at a Holiday Inn last night.

    Apparently the flight attendants are somewhere in San Jose making their way to the airport. A flight to LA at neighboring gate has 2 hour delay so we commandeered their flight crew. Thank you LA delay!

    :eek: Those delta flight attendants are known to be a lot of fun until they have to get up the next day. Then not so much. Good luck!!

    FYI, The Feb LVA says that this promo is no longer running, so if you were going there mainly for that you can skip it.

    Slots at QQQQ. Wonka 3 Reel still here. Got a few quick small bonuses. Currently putting it back into Lightning Link. Biggest bonus was $30 on LL.
