    My Trip Report

    We're packed. Our flight is on time. 12:57pm departure from MFE and landing in LAS 2 hours 32 minutes later. We'll be at Encore tonight and Monday and move over to Paris for Tuesday - Thursday. All nights are comped. I'll post pictures of our adventure as we go along. The title of this thread will become apparent in a day or so. Wish us luck. The past two trips have been lots of fun, except for the gambling. Hope to turn that around.

    later, GVJ

    IMG_1105.JPG B IMG_1103.JPG So we've boarded. This B757-200 will have to stop in Laredo to get some fuel. Due to Hurricane Harvey this airport didn't receive fuel late this week. Gonna add about 45 minutes to our journey to LAS.

    Moving through the airport was pretty easy. Shuttle to the Rental Car Center was a breeze. Grab the car - a 2017 Nissan Ultimate with less than 200 miles - headed to a Smiths grocery on LV Blvd south of the rental car center. Then made oir way to Encore via I-15. Google Girl directed us with ease. Here are some pics at the airport. And a few pics of the room at Encore. We arrived just before 4:00pm. The registration area was incredibly packed. Took approx 30 minutes to check in. Every station at the counter had a clerk working. Very gracious staff made the hassle ok. Now we are off to have some dinner at India Palace on Twain just off Paradise Rd about a 6 minute drive. We'll check in later.

    Later, GVJ

    Glad you could get out of Texas considering the situation there. Nice to see that Allegiant broke tradition and made a stop along the way, especially since it was for fuel. Will be following your adventures.
