    My Trip Report

    The name comes from the fact that this is my first trip as a septuagenarian.

    So far - Got stuck in a 90 minute traffic jam. I gave myself 4 and a half hours to get to BWI.

    I got there with an hour to spare. Got hung up in Security. My shorts fell to my feet in the X-ray thing. Then they patted me down because I had a hankie in my back pocket.

    I was the next to the last passenger to board, so all of the early check in was for naught. I ended up in Row 3, middle.

    The guy next to me was anti-shade up, so I was in a flying waiting room. Got to Midway and they parked at the total opposite end of the airport from my connection.

    After a mile hike, I find out my flight is delayed for 2 hours. I don’t get to Vegas until 6.

    This the last time I do this particular flight. I’ll get up at 4:00 A.M. to get the nonstop.

    When you come back with massive winnings, you'll forget all about the hassles of getting there.

    You will not forget this.
    You will curse traffic every time you're stuck in it on the highway.
    You will curse BMI every time the name comes up.
    You will curse Midway every time the name comes up.
    You will curse this airline every time it's name comes up.
    You will drink excessive amounts of alcohol upon reaching the casino floor after dropping your bags off in your room. You will smile that those cursed names should rot in Hell while you are sitting happily in your Heaven sipping on ambrosia slipping money into your favorite machine...and that at 70 you get to be in your happy place.
     
    Can I just move here?
    3 weeks. Yikes!

    OK... I had to look that word up, "a person who is from 70 to 79 years old." Let's just hope your not an "octogenarian" by the time you get there!

    Better luck Breeze!

    Once you get that room key and settle in, all the bad stuff will melt away and the good times begin.
    Have a hell of a trip!

    Crappy weather in Detroit didn't help matters. It's flying toward MDW now, so hopefully no more delays!

    Every time there's a bit of rain at the beginning of a trip the sun is not too far behind. Lets get all that negative shit out of the way and pave the path for a great, exciting, fun trip full of handpays and awesome cocktails!

    I had a good laugh about your shorts falling to your knees in the X-ray booth. That sort of thing almost happened to me with my jeans since we gotta take off our belts. I remember looking at my reflection in the glass with my arms up and my face looking mortified as my jeans slowly sank down showing a bit of my bvd's.

    The things TSA makes us do so we can go to Vegas......:bang:

    Tear the town apart, @Breeze147 ! Have a GREAT time!!!
