    This is not a swipe at the slightly older demographic that stereotypically goes to Laughlin....but....we haven’t even left yet and people are falling asleep!

    Bedtime is 9-10pm. These are people that wake up between 5-6am. Your original takeoff time was pushing it...as to by the time they get to the hotel, check in and get into bed.
    Boy, what a mess the weather is!

    That's just good planning. He's resting now so he can hit Vegas hard in 8 or 14 hours or whenever the hell the plane gets there.

    That guy has a full blown snore going.

    Perhaps, as mentioned above, he’s a savvy veteran who’s conserving until we land?

    I feel like it’s gonna be a very quiet plane ride down.

    Not if that snoring gets contagious on the plane! Can’t wait for the adventures to be in full swing. Think of it this way, this HAS to be the low point and you get it out of the way early on!

    It’s like there’s been a zombie apocalypse at the terminal in Calgary. There’s literally NO other humans other than those of us boarding this plane...which still isn’t here.

    Their appears to be a little discrepancy between our Departure time and the actual time.

    First blood on first Benny.
    JR has left Gaggles alone with gin and video poker. What could go wrong?

    My sister just stayed at Harrah's and said they took the dresser out and there were no plug ins for recharging? But maybe just her tower?
