    My Trip Report

    This is literally happening at the BEST time during this 14-month shut-down fiasco. Just found out all hotels can return to 100% capacity AND no masks for vaccinated peoples at most hotels! Myself, along with my BF & BFF (all vaccinated) will be migrating to the 9th island, spending 2 nights at Cal (Premium King) & 3 nights at Cosmo (Terrace Studio FV).

    We leave on Delta One tonight at 8:30ish. It’s 11:45ish now & I can’t wait to hele on out of here.

    My animal is boarding with his 3x/week doggie day care lady. He did not seem to care that our suitcases were out or that we were packing stuff up. He just knows he is going to day care today & it is awesome! Little does he realize, he gets to have the awesome all the way until next Thursday.

    What kind of dog mom would I be if I didn't take some silly Snapchat pics before I ditch him with the doggysitter?

    I appreciate trip reports, but especially appreciate the ones you all did during the last 14 months. The info, entertainment & storytelling kept me sane during this shut down & I will try my darnedest to give back to the community by doing one myself.

    Tentative plans (pending hangover status):
    -Buy lottery tickets from Primm Valley Lotto Store
    -Win lottery from tickets purchased at Primm Valley Lotto Store
    -Finally win a handy pay
    -Food, lots of food
    -Shoot Pool at Griffs
    -Top golf

    Let the countdown begin!

    Have fun on your trip!

    So are you getting your covid test at MSS before you come back? Also make sure that you fill out your safe travels (.gov) and upload your test results before you get to the airport on your return. Will make airport processing so much easier. Not sure about Delta but Hawaiian air will check your safe travels and QR code BEFORE you board the plane in vegas before flying home. They will give you a wrist tag so when you arrive in HNL you just show your wrist tag and be on your way. But the lines were long in vegas because a majority of passengers had to be processed before boarding so you may want to get to the airport a little early.

    Not sure about Delta but my Hawaiian air flight to and from vegas was totally packed. People were paying more for the extra comfort seats just to get on the plane.

    Some notes, if I remember more I will post.

    Market St. Café opens for breakfast at 8 am. But lots of people waiting in line at 8 am because of that. MSC also has a limited paper menu of their offerings. And expect service to be a little slow, seems that they didn't bring back their full staff so wait staff have to handle more tables. lots of complaining, I know they shouldn't air dirty laundry in front of customers but a few times I heard complaining because waiters had to handle more tables.

    Not sure but I remember someone posting that the road to/from Primm may be going through resurfacing so beware of traffic.

    You may want to pick up extra player cards since the bconnected desk has limited hours. I forgot and left my player card in the machine but couldn't get a new one until the next day.


    Cute dog!!!

    Good luck.

    Thanks, @makikiboy ! Very helpful info!
    Our return flight is on Hawaiian so the plan is to schedule & take the test on Monday @ MSS for our Thursday morning flight.
    Ugh, I was afraid of the droves of people looking for oxtail soup & miso butterfish, lol. Thanks for the warning.
    Our trip to Primm will be before they start road work on the 24th (thanks @Sonya !)
    Digging through all my Vegas purses I found 5 copies of my card. Hopefully they all work just in case!

    Good luck. Great timing on no masks and you're vaccinated. This should spark a lot of Vegas interest.

    Got to the airport with a lot of time to spare.

    Embarrassed ourselves a little by accidentally thinking Delta One seats came with Sky Club entry.

    FYI-It does not.

    The desk agent was really nice & apologetic, even though none of it was her fault, lol.

    Waiting for our flight from SEA to LAS. This airport is confusing, requiring one to take the tram to A gates & walk to B gates. No direct connection. Confused a bunch of other people this morning but not me! Heard the airport announcer lady’s direction & knew exactly what to do

    (Please excuse the unmanicured nails)
