    My Trip Report

    So last year about this time, I dropped in for a couple of days on my way out to California for my nephew's 8th grade graduation. Well guess what his 1 yr younger brother wanted his uncle to do? I'd just be a jerk if I said no, wouldn't I?

    Of course, as a former aviator, the long flight into the wind from east coast to the west coast on these range limited 737s makes me concerned about fuel reserves. So just to be safe, I thought I'd only go as far as Vegas on the first leg and give them five nights to gas up the jet.

    @MrsIrishDave is accompaning me and we've got the first three nights comped at Bally's with a slot tourney. Last couple of nights at Vdara in a suite at casino rate (well not really, no casino!), so it should be a fun getaway before some good family time.


    Getting in town about 9:30pm local Thurs evening, we'll see how much energy we have after a full day of work and a 5 hour flight.

    PS Sonya please move if I've posted here too early, but I promise it will get rolling in less than 80 hours!

    Somehow I think you will get a second wind after a 5 hour flight and being up for 20 hours. Hope you can use your charm to get an upgrade, maybe at that late hour one of the suites being held for a whale becomes available.

    Hope you get to try some new malt while out there, Scots or Irish.
