    I'm so behind on stuff, can't believe it's April. I HAVE to put mulch down this weekend or I will be regretting it come hotter weather.

    Still trying to figure out when in April I can get to Vegas. I haven't really looked at flights because I feel like they will know even if I'm looking in a private browser lol

    Yeah, I've never noticed the price changing just based on browsing flights.

    The only place where M and I noticed a price change is when you browsed was the CET calendar pre-Covid! Now most of the members here wouldn't notice it because their calendar would just stay saying COMP. lol

    Fortunately, I haven't noticed CET doing it in the last few years. It was definitely frustrating for awhile. We were like, "Shit. I guess we'll have to look at this again tomorrow." Then the price would go back to where it was.

    Oh I feel like have been a victim of looking at a flight and then the price changing after that, but could be confirmation bias.

    Interestingly enough, after I booked my Vegas flight yesterday, I checked the price about 6 hrs after I booked and it was the same price, with "6 seats left at that pricing". This morning whenever I looked, the price has tripled and still says "6 seats left". I wonder if 6 people actually booked at the lower pricing I booked at or if that is just a tactic. I will probably never know lol. Very interesting though.

    Now I have about 20 days to figure out how to fit my stuff in a small bag. Normally not a huge deal for me, but I will need to bring at least one dress and different shoes because we are actually eating at some nicer restaurants this time around (yet I WILL NOT pay 120.00 to check a bag lol)

    That's probably right. Sort of like how you always remember the guy that took the card that would have busted the dealer, but never the guy that took the card that saved the table!

    As far as checked bags, this is why I have an airline credit card. I grew up not being able to check bags because I was always standby, so now I pretty much always check a bag unless it's literally a day trip. I'll gladly wait an extra 20 minutes after landing if it means I get to stroll up to the gate with just my messenger bag and not have to worry about finding overhead space.

    im the exact opposite, nothing I hate more than waiting at the luggage carousel haha! It’s never 20 min for me, always an hr. The only time I check a bag now is if I travel internationally, mostly because my carry on won’t fit within international perimeters.

    I did get a new backpack which I tested out on my last trip! It’s pretty cool, will have to share some photos…opens like a suitcase and has a lot of nice features

    Well, once again I’ve managed to forget all about posting a quick trip intro until the eleventh hour, but better late than never!

    I’m heading out tomorrow morning for a 7 night stay at Cosmo. A long trip, yes, but I have some friends from OKC who are already in town through Saturday, and then I have friends from Ottawa flying in on Monday who haven’t been to Vegas since 2007, so I’ll be putting on my tour guide hat for a portion of this trip. I’ve rented a car for Tuesday and Wednesday, so I’ll probably be giving up the degenerate, nonstop bartop gambling at least for a while for a few excursions. We’ll probably hit up Red Rock, possibly Hoover Dam, and who knows where else. The good thing is that we really don’t have an agenda set in stone, so we’ll probably come up with a rough blueprint when they get in on Monday morning and go from there. Rest assured, though, there will be still plenty of time for the usual bartop gambling and cocktails at Chandelier!

    Unfortunately, on account of this trip I’ll be giving up a wonderful opportunity to see the eclipse on Monday. Indianapolis is in the path of totality, so it’s kind of strange to be heading out of the area when so many visitors are on the way in. Oh well…Vegas awaits!

    I always check. Why try to cram my stuff in a smaller bag and then lug it myself around the airport and fight for the overhead space. Let the airline take care of it and I can bring everything I want. I don't mind waiting a few at the end, go to the restroom, plan my ride.

    You know I went to lunch yesterday without my bag? It was pretty stressful, but I survived.
