    My Trip Report

    EXCITED! Yes I’m DAMN EXCITED!! :woohoo: This doesn’t even seem real … it really doesn’t…

    Our last trip was for New Years Eve ringing in 2020… Ohhh the anticipation of what 2020 would bring! Didn’t turn out quite like we thought it would lol

    It’s been a long 22 months since our last trip… we’ve been going to Vegas twice a year, a summer trip, and a trip over the winter holidays, often for NYE. We had something booked in July of 2020, then pushed it back to August, cancelled that, almost booked a trip in December 2020 but held off, hoped for a summer 2021 trip, no go… FINALLY pulling the trigger for this one.

    Sadly the GF is unable to make it for various reasons so I’ll be cruisin’ the Holy Land solo… the flight is scheduled to arrive at about Noon tomorrow (Nov 12th) and I leave Las Vegas in the early afternoon on Friday the 19th… 7 glorious nights!

    With the flight scheduled to take off from Pearson at 10:00am tomorrow I decided to make the 3.5 hour drive up to Toronto this evening and I’m currently in a hotel near the airport on a park and fly deal. I would have had to leave home around 4am tomorrow to get to Pearson in time for the flight, which was doable, but I was a little afraid of something going wrong, traffic, etc. So, tonight it was.

    I’m hoping to have a little side fun with the TR… In addition to the regular activity updates, I plan to post some photos of random things in Vegas where you can take a guess at what it is and where it is. Some might be easy, some might be hard to guess, some might be impossible haha I’ll reveal the answer to each at some point within a day or so of posting. I’ll post the first mystery pic tomorrow at some point and you’ll get the drift :D

    Bankroll you ask? Here you go! I’ve been saving my pennies for 22 months so there’s a little extra than usual ;) Can you guess what the magic number is?

    I’ll see ya’ll at Pearson in the AM!

    That's one of the most artistic bankrolls I think I've ever seen. Good luck!

    Made it through the whole rigamarole at Pearson... lines were long for security and even longer for Customs, took about an hour to get through both. Sitting at the gate now and the air transportation vessel is already sitting outside waiting for us, which hopefully means an on time departure.

    I found it interesting that nobody asked me for any documentation at all. No pre-departure test result, no vax stuff. Nothing. Maybe they'll ask me for it at the gate just prior to getting on the plane but I would have assumed they would have checked prior to security and Customs. I checked in online last night but I didn't upload any docs. I didnt have to go to the counter at the airport as I already had my electronic boarding pass. Hmmmm. Now I feel like I wasted $40 for the damn test haha

    Next stop... LAS VEGAS!!!

    They asked me at the gate before getting on. I checked in online and carry on only. I am sure you will be asked.

    Safe travels and looking forward to your report. I’ll guess $10002 which I hope gets multiplied many times over.
