    My oldest has promised me numerous times that she will take care of me in my golden years, and swears I won't ever have to go into a nursing home... but, it's always good to have a back-up plan!
    Gary and I can play rock, paper, scissors to see who gets your spare bedroom!

    Well this is a first. We are sitting at the Denver airport because we were diverted because of an unruly passenger.

    We are up front and this happened way in the back, so didn’t know why we were landing. All we knew was it was 1-1/2 hours too early, so not Vegas.

    They didn’t tell us what was going on until we were stopped. They said he was trying to light fires back there. They removed him and another 4 or 5 people walked off, one was saying they weren’t the one being unruly. I would guess they were traveling together.

    So now we are waiting for the police reports to be filled out and then get more fuel and they say we’ll be back in the air to Vegas.

    I’m glad we’re safe!

    And in Vegas, my aunt said the power just went out in her room at Flamingo. Strange night indeed....

    Sorry to hear about the diversion. I had a diversion heading home from Vegas earlier this year for a medical emergency. Hopefully they are good on the communication as they kept implying that it would be back in the air quick and it took almost three hours. Safe travels for the remainder of your journey!

    Wow!! No fun (and what a pain!) but hopefully a drama-free flight now, and Vegas soon!

    Bad luck out of the way early! And also Amazon Web Services conference at Venetian with 65k attendees. So hotels in that area probably will be pretty packed.

    So here we sit at Earl of Sandwich at 2am Vegas time. 5am for us, so been up 23 hours. You know we rarely do this!

    We finally started to land in Vegas just before midnight here, BUT just before touching the runway, the pilot aborted the landing and jerked the plane up. He said a big wind shear came thru. We circled Vegas and then were able to land.

    Took Trip to Strip to Flamingo to drop off mom. $12 total for the three of us+ tip.

    Then we walked to Planet Hollywood. Cool, but comfortable night.

    Next we’re going up to bed to crash. We’ll use today’s daily budget throughout the next few days, breaking it up.

    Day 1 Totals:
    Played on $0
    Ended with $0
    So even, right?!

    Based on your last trips, the slots and Casinos consider that a win.

    Glad you arrived safely.

    That looks unsafe!! Where are the police women???

    Despite all the travel woes, you’re still winning...you’re in Vegas!! :)

    ...and we’re not :(

    Good luck the rest of the way!

    Glad you arrived safely, the traveling to Vegas is getting to be a pain, but once you get there it is worth it. Win and have a super trip.

    That would have been pretty scary aborting landing - especially after the delays.

    Glad you made it safely - you two are so disciplined - after that travel day I would have gambled my entire bankroll that night
