    I have been able to download it at The D in the past so I think it just wasn't on there.

    Yes that happened to me. My original return flight was cancelled completely and they moved it to the next day but I was moving it to four days later anyway. Because of the cancellation I was able to move it and keep the price I originally paid rather than the higher fare for the flight I took yesterday.

    I always appreciate your reports. You have given me some good ideas for our upcoming trip at the end of March. My hope is that the Encore will be open for the 6 days we are scheduled to stay there, as we prefer the Encore rooms.

    Thank you so much for your trip report flowers as it brings a lot of interest from over in the UK especially during another lockdown. Whilst I could never be comfortable with your level of play compared to my own comfort zone I especially like the food dishes you take on as I contemplate some of them in my own future trips when times are allowed. If in the future you see a 55 year old 5’11” Englishman looking for food leftovers it might just be me.
    Thanks again.

    I do not say this lightly - but is it better to actually GO to Vegas myself or follow along on one of your EPIC trips? Hmmmm, I'll get back to you on that . . .

    A 45 page trip report, you kept us all informed and engaged. Kindness and grace personified.
    Then you drop this into a recap?!

    “and in the new year. I am ready to seize it personally and professionally”

    Hell yea! Somehow I don’t doubt you will seize it. (Thanks, I’m stealing this.)

    That was the small body care item in the kit you received on the way back that you took the photos of. 'Asutra Melt Pain Away - Magnesium Body Butter - Immediate Relief'. The purple pack with the white lettering. I was typing on my phone and it evidently didn't like how I spelled it so it changed it to Austra lol.

    Asking myself the same, especially as I just canceled my tentatively scheduled next trip, which was supposed to start in 12 days. California has a travel advisory requesting no non-essential travel beyond 120 miles from home, and also a requirement to self quarantine for 10 days after returning from another state. Oh well, I knew it was in jeopardy from the moment I booked it, but after my November trip went smoothly, I was hopeful it would work out.

    Thanks for such an incredible report, Flowers!
