    My Trip Report

    image.jpg So because we had a winning trip a few weeks back, ANNND we found $55 round trip flights out of SJC; we’re headed back to VEGAS!
    Details:
    Staying: Cosmo Boulevard Tower 1 bedroom fountain view
    Dining: Hell’s Kitchen Tonight, MTO Cafe in the morning; no other plans
    Shows: Mystere tonight at 9:30
    Bankroll: Usual $1000 a day.

    Let’s get this party started!
    On the shuttle from the parking lot to the airport at SJC right now...frontier sent an email saying 1 hour delay; but hopefully we get off the ground sooner (flight was originally scheduled for 3:30pm)
     
    My triumphant Vegas return!

    Oh my!! Hide the kids for at least 12 hours. They may be home by then and we can open the closet.

    Good luck. (Does the envelope system include bail?). Maybe it should?

    First time with Frontier too...there’s some other people here that are on our flight connecting to Tampa and they’re having to change their flights through Denver which means they won’t get in to Tampa until 5am! Nutty

    Come on dude. Don't be so harsh. 5:00 am to save the big one$'s. We saw flights from Austin to Reno on frontier. 49$. That's 196 $ round trip had we used them. It was 540 for us $135 each way. It was worth it. Three checked bags and a connection.

    We are idiots. But we r old and wasted time is not out thing. The unknown is a scary thing. Ask rod sterling.

    A backpack and a bankroll? I'm up for it just hate the unknown when justification for f*k ups is required as a couple. Good luck to you (and best of luck to the signs any other).

    Have fun! These delays are why I just pay the extra for SW, seems like frontier and spirit are constantly late yet a ton of VMBers use them notwithstanding lol.

    Excited to see some photos, always enjoy your reports.

    Oh I must have read the delay wrong, thought it was 3-4 hours lol. I saw another member had a 5 hour delay with frontier earlier and was just shaking my head ha. Looking forward to hearing how you do!

    Lol, we just touched down..on the final descent we hit a pretty patch of turbulence and EVERYONE took a collective deep breath hahaha
    Once the flight attended came on saying “Welcome to Las Vegas” everyone cheered and clapped..
    Truthfully it was the worst turbulence I’ve ever felt, haha..I think we dipped about 10’
